Among other trekking destination Everest Base Camp trek is the most desired by many trekkers and a visit to Mount Everest is the life time dream of many people. Being the ideal chance to take in the majestic mountain and the splendid beauty of the region’s scenery this trek takes its position in the top rank amongst trekking on the world stage.
This trek winds, climbs and descends its way through lush low land and alpine forest, Buddhist monasteries and authentic Sherpa Villages. Highlights of this trek includes the lifestyle of the Himalayan people, their religion, customs and traditions, rare birds like the golden eagle, snow pigeon, red-billed and yellow-billed choughs and flowers like rhododendron, magnolias, blue pine, chir pine, juniper and hemlock make the trekking a delight for nature lovers.
Everest Base Camp trek involves a remarkable amount of up and down walking. Tea house trekking is possible on the main trail to Everest Base Camp. While the visit to Everest Base Camp Trek is the goal for many trekkers, the view of Everest itself from the base camp can be disappointing. For the best views of Everest we recommend taking the Kalapatter Trek. This trek can be completed in conjunction with the Everest Base Camp Trek.
