Holidays to Mount Everest
Mount Everest is an absolute natural wonder and the highest peak in the world, as measured by the height of its summit above sea level. The mountain, part of the Himalaya range in Asia, is located on the border between Nepal and Tibet. The mighty mountain supplies a bundle of enjoyment, challenge, romance, adventure, excitement, and an opportunity to explore a unique and new experience.
Himalayan Footsteps assembles escorted trekking and personalised mountaineering expeditions on Mount Everest in Nepal and Tibet for one of the most adventurous and memorable holidays possible.
The Nepal Side
Nepal is a popular destination for mountaineers, rock climbers, and people seeking adventure. The Nepal side is the south of Mount Everest. It is the most favoured place for summit ascents. The Nepal side is the Sagarmatha National Park, containing one of the most desired trekking routes in the Himalayas – the Everest Base Camp Trek. The Nepal side is waiting for you with its astonishing and magnificent temperate hillside forests, ravines, the red earth of terraced farms, and small villages surrounded by huge mountains. Because of the low altitude and south-west monsoon, the scenery along the way is extraordinarily more colourful than on the China side.
On the Nepalese side, a heavenly ravishing sunset is the biggest highlight from Everest. The sun reflects off the summit in a stunning picture of gold and pink light on white snow. You can trek to Base Camp at 5,380 m (17,600 ft), take a helicopter or a mountain flight to get up close and overlook the scenery. We always suggest hiring a Sherpa as a porter as well as a guide. You can find some small villages on the way offering beds and Nepalese food.
The Tibet Side
Visit Mount Everest in Tibet to explore nature’s breathtaking scenic sights. The China side is the north side of Mount Everest where the Base Camp is at a slightly lower altitude of 5,200 m (17,060 ft). There is a China Post Office and you can send a postcard to your friends or yourself with the Base Camp postmark.
