A step-by-step guide to the journey

Set out on the journey of a lifetime with Penny Appeal, as we trek to Everest Basecamp!

After flying into Kathmandu, and spending a little time exploring the landscape, we will be setting off to Lukla on one of the most renowned mountain airstrips in the world. Our climbing party then heads to Namche Bazaar, trekking through the heart of Khumbu and experiencing the majesty of Everest National Park, and with Everest now in sight, the adventure truly begins!

Once we get acclimatised in Namche, we will be setting off on our trek to Phortse Gaon, where we hike the contours of the hillsides high about the Imja Khosi, enjoying the breath-taking views of the mountain sides and peaks – the crowning jewel that is Everest standing tall against the other rock giants for our viewing pleasure.

We then move on to higher altitudes as we climb our way above the Imjatse River and into Dingboche, catching stunning views of the Imjatse Valley on our trek through. After a thorough rest and acclimatisation in Dingboche, we carry on our journey north to Lobuche, trekking past an array of colourful prayer flags in the process. Our most challenging hike lies ahead, as we embark on our journey to Everest Base Camp!

Once reaching Base Camp, embrace the lively atmosphere with other trekkers and enjoy the beautiful views that lie before you, such as the Khumbu icefall and vast mountainous landscapes. From the spectacular height of Everest Base Camp, we dare to go further and trek on to summit Kalapathar, 18,221 ft. above sea level and the highest point of the trek!

This is where you can revel in your achievements, adventurers, because with the distance you’ve travelled and the new heights you’ve reached, your journey has been awe-inspiring. We then make our way back through the stunning landscapes we ventured past before, as we reach the end of this amazing trek.
