Trip Overview

A classic case of Everest trek but made slightly more accessible, sounds good to you? If the answer is a YES, we probably have the best tours for our seniors! Traveling is not bound by age, so why should a number stop you from standing below the world’s tallest mountains. The trekking itself is a harrowing journey because it is not a daily routine of many travelers themselves. If exploring the Everest region has always been on that list of yours, then our Everest Base Camp Trek for seniors might be the perfectly designed plan for you. Our itinerary is tailored to suit the needs of our mature and young travelers with added attention and care. The itinerary consists of all the visits to the breathtaking mountains, shining rivers, glaciers, new shrines, and Gompas with a visit to Everest right below.

The belief that trekking is only for the young and wild is what we wish to prove are just sayings. We at the Nepal Hiking team believe traveling is for everyone! The 20-day itinerary does not compromise your experience in any way! Our Everest Base Camp Trek for seniors is for our group of friends who have the same enthusiasm for travel and wish to capture the fleeting happy moments of life. We sightsee around the Kathmandu valley and visit the prestigious world heritage sites. We see the city and observe the fine art and culture it is known for. Starting our adventurous flight from Lukla, one of the world’s most minor airports, we embark on this trek. At all times, we walk at our own pace and have more rest days as we gradually meet the mountains.

Do you ever see yourself planning a vacation with your loved ones in one of the unique places on the globe? Because this journey takes you to the bustling city of Kathmandu and Namche Bazar. On your way, we enter into Sagarmatha National Park and see the region’s abundant flora and fauna. As you travel, you will cross many bridges, roads, and alleys decorated with prayer flags and tiny colorful villages. We see the ethnic communities and meet the local Sherpas. No matter where you travel, the Sherpa people known for having the reputation of being the most wonderful hosts will give you a true taste of their hospitality. Imagine topping all that experience by standing at EBC (5400m approx.) with your loved ones and experiencing that there is nothing possibly greater than this!

Hence, be assured that our team of hospital guides will always be a companion for you in tough times. They will serve you at every step and ensure you will have nothing to worry about. Our trek is designed with more days to acclimatize as you follow the trails through Dingboche, Thukla, Lobuche, and Gorakshep. Once you decide to get on the trip, we promise that we will take proper of your senior and younger members. We guarantee you that with adequate rest and care, you will be leaving your footprints at EBC. The feeling is unmatchable as you watch the majestic mountains like Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku, to name a few. So book the tickets and set out for the much-awaited trip to Everest!
