If you are from Malaysia and want to take part in this remarkable journey to the foothills of the highest peak in the world, Adventure Great Himalaya offers special packages for our Malaysian clients. In over a decade of service since our establishment in 2009, we got the opportunity to assist many Malaysian trekkers with their Himalayan exploration. Thanks to the positive feedback and heartwarming reviews from our Malaysian clients, we have designed this remarkable package on the most prominent trails of the Himalayas, especially for Malaysian clients.

Your  EBC Trek  starts after a 35-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2,827 meters). Following the trails alongside the Dudh Koshi River and across the Sagarmatha National Park, you will make your way to Namche Bazaar (3,440 meters). Then, moving on the gradually ascending trails, you will make your way to other high-elevated highlight points of the region, like Tengboche (3,800 meters), Dingboche (4,410 meters) and Lobuche (4,920 meters).

During your trek, you will also get acclimatization days at Namche and Dingboche in order to adapt to the new altitudes before pushing all the way to the base camp. During the last part of your ascending journey, you will trek through Gorakshep (5,180 meters) to reach Everest Base Camp (5,364 meters).

After the morning hike the next day to Kalapatthar (5,545 meters) to enjoy the panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Lobuche, Taboche, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and other adjacent peaks, you will begin your descending journey.

You will retrace your steps back on the same charming trails across the Dudh Koshi River and lush rhododendron flowers to make your descent gradually across Dingboche and Namche Bazaar to finally reach Lukla. Then, wrapping up your journey at Lukla, you will fly back to Kathmandu on either the direct Lukla to Kathmandu route or via the Lukla to Manthali Airport flight and drive back to Kathmandu. The flying route will depend on the congestion and traffic conditions at the airports.
