The imposing peaks of Everest have long beckoned climbers to make the arduous climb to its summit. Surrounded by the knife-like crests of neighbouring massifs, Everest reigns supreme as the world’s biggest and wildest mountain.
While actually summiting Everest is beyond the call of most adventurers due to its difficult terrain and prohibitive costs, the Everest base camp trek – which peaks at an altitude of 5,364 metres – is an incredible alternative. Setting off from Kathmandu across the Gokyo and Khumbu valleys, hike through rocky outcrops decorated with prayer flags fluttering against dramatic mountain backdrops and experience unparalleled Sherpa hospitality on village visits. Peregrine’s Everest Base Camp tours take hikers into Namche Bazaar, around the lower slopes of Khumbilya, up to Gokyo Peak and into mighty Mount Everest’s famous Base Camp. Challenging? Yes.

Everest & Gokyo Lakes, October 2016
Excellent trip with good leaders and fantastic support, including additional safety measures. In comparison to others we spoke to, the local guide has fantastic knowledge with regard to acclimatisation. Everyone in our trip made it and our ages ranged from 38 - 67!
