Everest Base Camp Trekking is one of the most desired by many trekkers and a visit to Mount Everest is the lifetime dream of many people. Being the ideal chance to take in the majestic mountain panoramic view and the splendid beauty of the region's scenery this trekking takes its position in the top rank among 1st trekking on a world stage.
This Everest Base Camp trekking winds, climbs and descends its way through lush lowland and alpine forest, Buddhist monasteries and authentic Sherpa Villages. Highlights of this trek include the lifestyle of the high Himalayan people, their religion, customs and traditions, rare birds like the golden eagle, snow pigeon, red-billed and yellow-billed coughs and flowers like rhododendron, magnolias, blue pine, chair pine, juniper, and hemlock make the Everest trekking a delight for nature lovers.
Everest Base Camp trekking involves a remarkable amount of up and down hike-walking. Tea house Everest trekking is possible on the main trail to Everest Base Camp. While the visit to Everest Base Camp 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 Kalapatthar Trek. This trek can be completed in conjunction with the Everest Base Camp Trekking.
