see larger map >>

October 23 to November 8, 2020

Join geophysicist Simon Klemperer on this 11-day trek to Everest’s 17,600-foot-high Base Camp—one of the most spectacular and rewarding journeys on Earth.

Peak experiences! Reach the trek’s maximum altitude at the summit of 18,192-foot Kala Patthar; stop at Everest Base Camp, where climbing expeditions prepare for their summit attempts; and take a scenic helicopter flight over the camp and back down the valley. Steeped in local flavor. Sleep in simple tea houses each night and hear about local Sherpa culture as we make our way from village to village. The particulars. We take our time hiking each day to allow for gradual acclimatization. And with yaks doing the heavy lifting, we can focus on viewing some of the world’s highest mountains.
