BAI – Spring 2009 Everest Base Camp Trek
Beginning from our home base in Kathmandu, the five-star luxury of the famous Yak and Yeti hotel, we will immerse ourselves into the history, art and religion of one of the most fascinating cultures in the world.

Day three in Kathmandu, early morning departure to Lukla, the start of our EBC trek! This exciting flight will give you the first views of these grand peaks.
After landing on the famous Lukla runway at 9,300 feet above sea level, the excitement continues as we load the animals who are an important part of the team.
Nim Puthi, BAI’s yak leader. This beautiful woman is a hard worker and always has a smile.
You will travel through many villages along the way
Many prayer wheels to spin and many rest stops
You will be invited into the ancient monasteries and receive blessings
An abundance of suspension bridges and high towering peaks
The people you will meet and the friendships that will begin
First Goal- Summit of Kala Patar from which you will see EVEREST!
Your Second Goal – Everest Base Camp
Here you will visit and see how the Everest Climbing teams live while the constantly moving Khumbu glacier crackles and Everest 29,035 ft (8,852 meters) hovers above.
