If we had to describe one of our challenges as “epic” then this trip to Everest Base Camp would be the one. Your journey to Everest Base Camp begins in Kathmandu, Nepal’s vibrant capital, and takes you via a twin engined plane to Lukla. From here you will continue on your trek into the heart of the Nepali Himalaya, taking in some spectacular scenery along the way.
