Everest Base Camp 2014 (documentary)


A one hour documentary of the trek to Everest Base Camp. From a brief tour of the city of Kathmandu to flying into Lukla and hiking the almost 100 miles round trip to base camp. The first 30 min's is a great introduction to what you might expect on a trek. Everyone's experience will be different (time of year etc) but this is still a good into.

The Milky Way rising above Everest

A short timelapse video showing the stunning Milky Way over Mount Everest. Well worth watching on HD.

The Backpack Diaries

A fun diary from two backpackers trekking to bas camp set to various music. Featuring a bumping Lukla landing. One of them got sick at the end where you'll see a what a helicopter evacuation looks like. Another reason why you should really read about what trekking insurance you should get for Nepal!

The Himalayas from 20,000 ft

If you are looking for something visually appealing this short HD video of the Himalayas will do the trick. Allegedly its the first HD video of the mountains from this altitude (some dispute this) but nonetheless it's a visual feast worth checking out. Of note is the footage shot of the Nepalese valleys the helecopter flys over enroute to the mountains.

Below the Top of the World

What's Everest Base Camp like when it's cloudy? In this video a girl sets of on the Everest Base Camp trek and sets it to music. While the video can be enjoyable the for people planning a trek it's actually very usful as it shows base camp on a cloudy day. For different weather you check out my own Everest Base Camp journal when it snows.

Into the Himalaya

A beautifully shot video with great scenes from the Kathmandu Valley before taking to the Everest Base Camp Trek and summiting Island peak. Set to Nepalese music it makes for a wonderful example on what you can expect from a trip to Nepal.

Everest Base Camp (winter)

Ever wondered what it would be like to trek to Everest Base Camp in the middle of winter? (Jan). Liren did it! A nice video showing clouds at the start, snow on the trail and then finally clear blue skies over Everest. There's even a scene of some monks sking!

Everest Base Camp (Feb)

A long video/film from a man making a solo trek in the winter to Everest Base Camp. The video is a mix of film, photos and a narrative. It's a day to day account which may have spoilers but worth it if you really want a look at the trek.
