“Your guide and map in an App”.
Whether you are going, or just thinking of going, on a trek to Everest Base Camp World Adventure Guides has designed a fully interactive digital map and guide, with all the information you need.
NEW EXCEPTIONAL GPS MAPPING
This brand new digital map of the Khumbu region of Everest, created by renowned map makers Harvey Maps, works seamlessly, allowing you to zoom in from a scale of 1:100,000 (which will show your location in relation to all the peaks) to a finely detailed 1:5,000 (which will show you the lodges when you’re in a village). The map has been built from GPS source data (we’ve walked every step) and gives you the marked route from start to finish, accurate contour detail, a host of features, points of interest, altitude and more.
The app includes a detailed, day-by-day, suggested trekking itinerary, superb photographs, advice on equipment, acclimatisation and health, plus additional sections on Kathmandu, culture, customs, wildlife, language, health, & more. The is the first app in the ‘Trek the World’ series, put together by a team of professional trek leaders who know the Everest region intimately, and have been leading treks all over the world for many years.
With our brand new offline Everest Base Camp trekking map included, the app will work anywhere, regardless of phone signal or internet connection, and find your location in seconds. Watch your location on the map and record your progress as you undertake the adventure of a lifetime on this historic and breathtaking trek.
If progress recording is switched on, the app will also record your progress when it is in the background or when your iPhone's screen is locked.
(Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)

Ratings and Reviews
Expensive but plenty of useful information
There are very few apps covering the Everest Base Camp trek so I reluctantly paid the £9.99 and have been quite impressed with the amount of useful information contained within it.
One warning though, this app is very power hungry and will eat your battery in no time. Rated 3 stars due to expense and battery drainage.
Wow, this is the future of travel guides!
What a fantastic app. It is crammed full of honest, practical, knowledgable advice for someone thinking of trekking to Everest Base Camp. Brilliant to have all this information right on your iPhone, no need for the weight of a book in your kit. Having said that, it is also a great app just to read and look at the super photos and a lot cheaper than any guide book.
The maps are lovely and have high level of detail. Linking to the GPS to track you progress is a great idea.
An absolute must item for trekking to Everest, or for anyone with an interest in the mountains. I can't wait for more routes to come out!
It is the future of travel guides! The maps are detailed yet clear and the guide itself is written in an easy comfortable style which is good for the experienced walker and for the armchair traveller such as myself. Am looking forward to further titles in this series.
