Mt. Everest Advnaced Base Camp Trek (18 Days)

The trek takes you as close to the summit of Everest as any non-climber can go. This is an incredible adventure to Camp 3 (6400m) and the base of the North Col via the east Rongbuk Glacier. Nowhere else on this planet can you hike on trails to such altitude without the need of crampons, ice axes or mountaineering skills. This is the world's highest trek; we go to extreme altitude and camp in difficult conditions. You must be fit and tough.

We begin the trek after driving 960km Friendship Highway through some of the most amazing landscapes on Earth. We pass small Tibetan settlements, nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plains and awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Equally as fascinating is the wealth of cultural interest and we will have plenty of opportunity to explore this side of Tibet, both in Lhasa and the other towns we pass through on our journey to Kathmandu.

Day 10: Rest day at Base Camp (5200m) 68km

We take a short drive to the rough and barren Everest Base Camp. This is a short day, really it is one of many acclimatization days. How often do you get a chance to sit and read at 5000 meters with the sheer north face of the highest mountain in the world towering above us.

Although we drive it is possible to trek Rongbuk to Base Camp, which takes about 5 hours slowly. It is tough at this altitude! You will feel better after a day's rest. Overnight at camp.

The Rongbuk Glacier is an impressive frozen ocean of ice waves; the views of the glacier and the Himalayan peaks are some of the most dramatic in Tibet. Along the east side of the glacier is the trail that expeditions use to begin their climbs of Everest and this is the trail we are taking. Camp 1 is set in a barren world of moraine hills under beautifully sculpted yellow-orange granite cliffs. If we reach camp early we can explore end of the East Rongbuk Glacier. Overnight at camp.

Day 13: Trek to Interim Camp (5760m)
The trail to the Interim Camp climbs and descents over the gravel hills, always staying above the west edge of the ice. Interim camp is a good place to spend a night acclimatising before trekking to Camp 2. Nearby, the first ice seracs [ice pinnacles] rise like white sails from the dark debris-laden surface of the glacier we will go and take a good look at these. Overnight at camp.

Day 14: Rest day at Interim Camp (5760m)
We spend a day here in the intermediate camp, resting to further acclimatise. We will of course explore the surroundings on small excursions. However this is another good chance to finish that book. Overnight at camp.

About two hours above the Interim camp the central ridgeline leads in to a confused of ice at the confluence with the Changtse glacier. Camp 2 [5970m] is only ten minutes from here, set in a beautiful location; glaciers large and small spills into the valley from every direction and the appropriately named Serac Highway continues to extend its unusual gravel arm trough the centre of the of the ice formations. Overnight at camp.

Day 16: Trek to Camp 3 (6340m) and return to Camp 2
Each person has the choice of making a day trip to ABC and sleeping at Camp 2, or of spending the night at Camp 3. Beware though, the altitude is extreme. Camp 3, the advanced base camp for the North Col route up Mount Everest, is situated within a group of flattened gravel mounds beside the glacier. The pinnacles, the frightening group of rock palisades that kept the Northeast Ridge unclimbed for so long, are just another 1500 metres up from camp 3. Most amazing of all is the ridge extending above the Pinnacles to the southwest: the striated rock summit of Everest. The top of this mountain appears phenomenally close; it is little more than 2400 meteres higher than camp 3. This is the closest non-climbers can get to the top of Everest. With a pair of binoculars, you are almost there... Overnight at camp.
