Basecamp Trekking Mount Everest South

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”

-John Burroughs

Everest Basecamp from south

A true experience for all mountaineers and those who want to become one. It’s the trek to the world’s most famous base camp – Mount Everest Base Camp. At base camp Mount Everest is within one’s reach. Feel and experience the unique flair of the Himalayas by trekking from Kathmandu to base camp. Passing colourful Nepalese mountain villages and impressive terrain, the highlight of the trek is the ascent of the mountain Kala Patthar with beautiful panorama, before reaching and exploring the base camp.

On one day in the Basecamp you can learn how the further planning of the Mount Everest ascent works: How is the weather analysed? How to cook at 5100m altitude? How many helicopter flights arrive at Basecamp per day?
With this accompanying trekking tour you have the opportunity to find the answers to these questions yourself.

We offer the accompanying trekking for all who want to discover the Himalaya for themselves and who want to provide support for the expedition Team. With the highest safety- and quality Standards and the reassuring certainty for our participants that they are entrusting themselves to a licensed, strictly tested Austrian expedition operator.

insert_chart_outlined   Difficulty / Technique

The ascent always lies in the participant‘s personal responsibility, while led by the mountain guide and expedition leader. Participants must be able to move safely and independently in mixed terrain and – if required – independently build rope teams under the guidance of the mountain guide. Cooperation, camaraderie and support on the mountain increases the chances of success for all. The guide is there to provide guidance for the whole group, the possibilities for him to respond to individual needs is limited. It is imperative that participants adhere to the instructions and decisions made by the mountain guide. Regardless, each participant must know their own physical limits, and be able to make a timely decision to turn back.

perm_identity   Physical fitness

A key success factor in expeditions is being in good shape. Train in the months before the expedition! Several hour hiking with a backpack and around 800 meters per day should not be a problem for you. You have to carry your own personal equipment on the mountain, unless an optional personal Sherpa is booked. The porters are available for the group. We will gladly provide individual advice on how to best prepare yourself mentally and physically for an expedition!

local_hospital  Health

We recommend that each participant undergoes a medical examination prior to the expedition. Good health is a prerequisite for participation. Particularly important is a visit to the dentist because previously unnoticed dental problems can become quite acute due to the sudden change in pressure conditions in higher altitudes.
