Advanced Everest Base Camp trek offers you a challenge full of excitement, discovery and adventure. The world’s highest trek follows the scenic trails of the high Himalayas allowing you to enjoy not only the picturesque mountains, valleys and glaciers, but also allows you to experience the cultural wonders that thrive in the Tibetan plateau.

We call this Advanced Base Camp trek in that we do not just take you to the base camp. We will take you to the second and the third camp of Everest. The third base camp of Everest lies at an altitude of 6,340m. Climbing up to the third base camp would mean you have ascended the closest possible to the summit of Mt. Everest without actually scaling the summit itself.

Prior to starting your journey towards the third camp of Mt. Everest, we will take you to some majestic Tibetan monasteries, monuments and natural wonders. An expert local Tibetan guide will be showing you around. We have reserved two full days in Lhasa so that you can also be able to explore the beautifully imposing Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Norbulingka, Jokhang Temple, colorful Barkhor Markets, Drepung Monastery and the likes.

Leaving Lhasa by best 4 wheel drives you will drive past picturesque landscaped Tibetan settlements where nomadic herdsmen can be seen wandering across the wide arid Tibetan Plateau. The adventure overland journey takes you over several 5000+ meter high mountain passes amidst most amazing mountain views including majestic Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Shisapangma and many other numerous peaks.

Overland adventure ride also takes you through Shigatse (Xigatse) which has significant Tashilumpu monastery and many interesting sites. The whole trekking part of the trip will be fully catered and supported by high altitude Sherpa crews who have trodden this high Everest trial not less than a dozen times.
