Everest Diamond Jubilee

Mount Everest - Everest Base Camp Trek

Join our special 60th anniversary departures

Edmund Hillary and Tenzig Norgay SherpaOn May 29th 2013, we are celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of the 1st ascent of the ‘Chomolungma'. On this date in 1953 Sir Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Everest at the tender ages of 33 and 39 respectively. To celebrate this 60th Anniversary we have added 3 new departure dates that will coincide with the 29th of May celebrations at basecamp. Our ‘Classic' Everest Basecamp (EBT), Ultimate Everest Trek (EVT) and Everest Basecamp Lodge Trek (EBL) all have ‘Special Departures' to get you to the right place at the right time.

On our Classic Everest Base Camp trek, which includes the opportunity to reach both the real base camp of Everest and also the summit of Everest Base Camp TrekKala Patar, you can choose between camping on the classic trek or staying in Sherpa lodges on our Everest Basecamp Lodge Trek.  Famed for fantastic sunrise and sunset views both of these 18 day treks journey from the airstrip at Lukla through Namche Bazaar, Thyangboche Monastery and beside the Khumbu Glacier to Basecamp.

For the keen hill-walker, our Ultimate Everest Trek itinerary first treks through the stunning lake-bejewelled Gokyo Valley before crossing the Cho La Pass to Kalar Patar and Everest base camp.

Everest Basecamp and Kala Patar TrekAll three treks depart the UK mid-May and will have you at Everest Base Camp on the 29th May. On the ‘big day' you will approach via the moraine and then the Khumbu Glacier arriving in time for the festivities and then trek back to Gorak Shep. At Base Camp you will meet many of the climbers who have come to attempt the summit on this anniversary year.
