"Walking along with the painful scars given by devastating quake of April 25 2015, Nepal decides to continue the legacy of World’s Highest Skydiving Event – the Everest Skydive. Like the previous years, the elite aerial adventure on the top of world will bring many adventure extremists and adrenaline junkies to the elevated airstrips of Syangboche. The flight loads flying with these adventure seekers taking them high into the thinner air and the electrifying jumps (tandem or solo) from the lofty clear skies facing Everest will once again seek the attention of every adventure lover across the globe."
"After the thorough assessment by Miyamoto International, US based Engineering Firm and our recent client experience, we are delighted to declare that Everest Base Camp Trek and other treks in Everest Region are absolutely safe to trek."
"Everest Base Camp Trek, the most sought walking escapade that takes trek aficionados as high as 5545m (Kalapattar) is throughout a thrilling adventure. Our tailor made trek to the base camp of Everest supported by veteran Sherpa Guides and top-notch gears allows proper acclimatization."
"Continuing to walk along the trails of rolling hills, trekkers cross pass diverse climatic regions and the diverse forestlands frequently encountering amazing Sherpa culture in highland Sherpa hamlets and vibrant Buddhist monasteries in these villages."
En route take your time to savor the amazing blend of nature and culture at Tengboche as the monastery caters unparallel view of Mt. Ama Dablam at its backdrop. Until Tengboche, the trek is relatively easier as it is still below 4000m. The strenuous section of the trek begins beyond Tengboche and hence trekkers need to cope with the thinner air in elevated Himalayan Region. However, our expertise in organizing high altitude treks allows trekkers for prior and proper acclimatization and hence that would not be a problem.
Standing at the base camp of Everest from where avid mountaineers like Hillary, Tenzing, Taibe and Appa Sherpa started their journeys to the summit of mighty Everest no doubt enhances the greed to conquer the beautiful white beast soaring right before eyes. Eventually, the walk to the top of Kalapattar 5545m, the mountain of black rock, which is the vantage point to sight the whole view of Everest, is the last major highlight of Everest Base Camp Trek before retracing the trail back to Lukla.
