Mount Everest, rising 8,848m (29,028ft) above sea level reigns as the highest mountain on Earth. For decades summiting Everest has been considered as one of the greatest mountaineering achievements. In the spring of each year, we embrace this intense challenge by taking a group of qualified climbers to climb Mt. Everest via the South East Ridge of Nepal. The first successfully climbed on Mt.Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay Sherpa accomplished this feat in May 29, 1953. Since then the South East and also via other various routes, the Mt.Everest has seen over a thousand ascents. The South East is by far but the most successfully climbed route on the mountain.
The Everest area known locally as Sagarmatha National Park is home to some of the world's highest peaks as well as the famous Sherpas, migrants from eastern Tibet who crossed over the Himalaya and settled here sometime in the late 1400s or early 1500s. This trek is one that goes deep into the heart of the Himalaya. The mountain views are stunning, and the simplicity and hospitality of the Sherpa community is heartwarming. You will get to take in the awe-inspiring views of Mt. Everest, the tallest of them all, Mt Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Lobuche Peak, Mt Amadablam, Kasum Kangru peak, Thamserku peak, and Kwangde peak. You will also be visiting Sherpa villages and monasteries to gain insight into their culture and lifestyle from up close
This classical Everest Base Camp trek into the Solu-Khumbu region begins with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla & continually trekking along the Dudh Kosi ("MilkRiver"). After crossing the Namche Bazar” Sherpa headquarter/Capital” we will continue on to Tengboche with its beautiful Buddhist monastery. This small village is considered the spiritual center of the Khumbu area. We will gradually make our ascent to Dingboche (4,410m), Lobuche (4,910m) and finally along the glacial moraine to Gorakshep (5,140m) at the base of Kala Pattar (5,550m). Now you will have the option of a sunset or sunrise climb to the 5,550m' summit of Kala Pattar for a panoramic view of some of the world's highest mountains including Everest at 29,028'. We'll make the 3-hour trek on to Everest Base Camp where, depending on the season, you'll see mountaineering expeditions preparing for their ascent to the highest peak in the world, beginning with the spectacular Khumbu Icefall. Enjoy the holidays in the Khumbu region.

This kind of trek is challenging but doesn’t really require previous trekking and mountaineering experiences and also doesn’t require any technical experience. But if you have any previous experiences would be really helpful. Your fitness is really important for this trek; therefore we strongly suggest preparing yourself in good physical condition. You need to be trained at least for about 3 to 5 months to prepare yourself as a strong candidate. You can go to the fitness center every morning for about 1.5 hours, do hiking every weekend with increasing weights on your pack, manage some time for cycling for a couple of hours for 2 or 3 times a week. However, at the high altitude, there might be little symptoms of altitude illness like mild headache, fatigue, etc. but take it as normal and just drink enough water (4 – 5 liters) every day. On this trek, you need to be able to hike 4 – 8 hours over hilly terrain up to 5,500m of altitude with a daypack.
If you have any previous experiences of similar grade trek would be helpful, but if you don’t have is also not really important matter of issue. This trek will introduce you about high altitude trekking in the Himalayas and also about the local cultures, traditions, and local people.
Even if you are around the age of 65 years, you can be a candidate for this trek.

Patrick & Geoff - Basecamp 2019
Dawa Sherpa and his team were exceptional in their care and aid of out Basecamp trek for 2019. It was an amazing experience not only to see and feel the mountains but also to speak to his crew and learn about the region and trekking/mountaineering in general. They were always ready to help whenever we needed.
We will certainly be coming back to Nepal and the Himalayas again. Most definitely through Dream Himalaya Adventures.

Wow wow wow!
Ok so the scenery was awesome - that’s a given! The food was nutritional and hot! Sleeping was easy because the body was ready for rest.
But the team at Dream Himalaya Adventures could not have been better selected. Nothing was a problem. Anything was possible. If you wanted it, you got it!
Their main aim is to get you to your destination and back safely and for you to enjoy the entire experience.
If we weren’t eating enough, they encouraged us to fuel up.
If we weren’t drinking enough “pani” (water), they stopped us for a drink break. If we walked too quickly (I’m amazed some of our team members could), they reminded us to walk “bistari bistari” (slowly slowly) to better acclimatise.
The guides are trained to spot when a trekker needs to slow down, drink and breathe more slowly.... and the great thing about that, is the opportunities to take photos and appreciate the marvellous scenery!
If you are lucky enough to get Singing Dawa you will be serenaded on the way up. If you have Ishi, he will play music to dance to as you descend. If you get Dorjee - he will walk behind you every step of the way making sure you are ok... hydrated....and taking it easy.
The porters are super human! Make sure you tip them! They are worth the weight they carry in gold! My word!
Dawa Sherpa (lama) has thought of everything.... from sightseeing tours around Kathmandu - to rest stops along the trek to Base Camp. More than this, he is able to use his influence as one of the most highly respected operators in Nepal to get those little extras no-one else can....
So if you are researching for a trek and are wondering whether to use a local business to guide you... DHA are more than that! Their treks are seemless - from the first point of contact through to post journey communication.
I would not use anyone else!
Thank you Dawa S Lama - to you and the entire amazing team at DHA.

The highlights of my trip was the stunning scenery on the trek and the friendly people of Nepal.
It was definitely a life changing experience and i would love to do it again some day with my daughter.
Dawa and his team were amazing i found them very organized, caring and friendly which impressed me.

We had a beautiful trip! From the very first contact with Dawa a few months before to the airport drop off, Dream Himalayan Advantures provided excellent service, answered questions quickly, and took wonderful care of our team. Their guides were so friendly and very competent in what they do. We had a big team of 10 people, but they were able to meet each person’s needs. Would definitely work with them again!

My experience with Dream Himalaya Adventures was excellent! Dawa Sherpa took care of every detail before and after our trek. I felt very confident in his abilities. All of our drivers and guides were most helpful and informative. Our trek guide, Sherku Sherpa, was exceptional, and he took very good care of us. We had an incredible adventure with stunning scenery every day.
I highly recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures to anyone seeking an unparalleled experience in and around the Himalaya!

I went for a Everest Base Camp trek with Dream Himlaya Adventures (DHA) team in May 2018. Being a very organised person (I prefer everything to be planned in detail and booked in advance before I travel), I was a bit skeptic and nervous about the kind of arrangements that DHA would have done. But I when I got there, I was pleased and surpised to see the amount of planning that DHA team had done and the professionalism that they showed at every step of our journey.
We had two tour guides (Tenzin and Pasang) supported by two porters (Santosh and Astha) all of them were very helpful, professional and were very accommodaitng of all our needs.
I highly recommend DHA for your hiking needs.

my base camp trek was with one guide and one porter. The entire trek was everything that was promised and more. tour director,Dawa, was organized and had representatives meet me at my arrival in Kathmadu. My entire experience was a first-class treking adventure. I was cared for and looked after the entire trek as well as in making changes to my return air ticket. I have nothing but praise for Dream Himalaya company. I recommend this company withiut reservation.

My friend Michelle and I recently undertook the epic journey to Everest Base Camp. Although an arduous trek, the magnificent scenery and embracing nature of the Nepalese people made it an unforgettable adventure I feel privileged to have experienced. We connected with Dream Himalaya Adventures over a year before we arrived in Nepal. Dawa’s efficient and professional service in the planning process was welcomed and reassuring, as was the personable welcome and briefing we received upon arrival in Kathmandu.
On our trek, special mention goes to our guide, Tendi Sherpa. He is a skilled mountaineer whose passion for the mountains is infectious. Administratively he ensured everything ran smoothly but more importantly, when the going got tough, it was his compassionate care that we fully depended upon. He added tremendous value to the enjoyment of our Everest experience.I highly recommend the service offered by Dream Himalaya Adventures and hope to undertake one of their other travel offerings in the future.
