The journey of a thousand miles is said to begin with a first step. But if you've been chained to your desk, you probably can't remember the last time you stepped out to go anywhere. Take more than a water cooler break and Escape on this breathtaking trek to Mt Everest Base Camp in Nepal.
The only way to see Nepal is by foot, as you wind your way along scenic trails spying ancient peaks, verdant valleys, rushing rivers and rhododendron forests teeming with wildlife. Let your guided adventure begin with the superb expertise of Holiday Nepal / Himalayan Experience on a 17-day trek through the spectacular Himalayan countryside (just $1,199, usually $2,900). Or upgrade to a 19-day tour, which includes a two-night Jungle Safari to Chitwan National Park, with all meals and accommodation included (just $1,399, usually $3,150).
Start your trip as you touchdown in Kathmandu, and get picked up with a return airport transfer, whisking you to your four-star accommodation (with the option of a five-star upgrade if available). You'll tour the city's magical sites, with all your entrance fees included.
On your second day, you'll take off in a thrilling plane ride with incredible views to arrive in Lukla. From there, begin your climb, with a professional guide to lead your path. Revel in the wonders of Namche Bazaar, local villages, ancient temples and stunning mountain peaks including Ama Dablam and Khumbu Glacier. And you only need to think about your next step, because all your Everest National Park permits are included.
Arrive at Mount Everest base camp to witness the glorious mountain from its very feet at the culmination of your life changing journey. The stunning views will leave you breathless.
For those who upgrade, your jungle safari is a wonderland of exotic wilderness as you trek deep into the lush and dense rainforest on elephant back or 4WD. You'll spot exotic birds, wild animals in their natural habitat (up to 43 species are found in Chitwan alone) and enjoy canoe rides on the jungle rivers, nature walks and local villages. It's an experience to remember!
