Everest Base Camp with Island Peak is a more fantastic experience that combines the wonders of the Everest Base Camp with the dramatic climb of Island Peak. Beyond the climb, you also get to witness the Sherpa culture, lifestyle, and beauty of the Himalayan region. The mystical region encompassing the most captivating of the natural landmark in the world- the Mt. Everest (8848m); its base camp is also en route to the Island Peak Climbing journey while also making sure the panoramic views atop the Kalapatthar viewpoint are also checked off the list of travel mongers.

The trip begins with your arrival in Kathmandu. After a short stay in the valley, you take the picturesque flight to Lukla.

One of the main highlights of this trek is the hike to Kalapatthar, an excellent viewpoint to witness the panoramic views of the snowcapped mountains. From the viewpoint, you can see the views of Mt.Everest (8,848m), Mt. Nuptse (7861m),AmaDablam (6,856m),and many other mountain peaks.

My Everest Base Camp Trek- Mrs. Galina Vasileva

I did EBC trek with a helicopter return with The third rock adventures. I can wholeheartedly advise this company to anybody who wants to get best service, best adventures, and best memories. The whole team works as one perfect mechanism, giving you everything you want and a lot more. If you know what you want exactly, they will do it for you, if you do not want to go to too much details while preparing for the trek - just trust them! Thank you once more, my support team of Nabin, Babu, and Nikesh. You did a lot to make me happy and I can now change a bit of Robert Burns's words to “ My heart is in Nepal “.
