Trip Overview


Perhaps one of the most common and challenging classic trekking in the Everest area is the Everest base camp trek. Everest base camp trek has been considered as a trekker's first choice to see face-to-face the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest. You must travel to the base camp of Everest where the Everest expedition team begins to climb Mt-Everest. Likewise, to see the breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains like Mt-Everest, you must climb up to Kala patthar. Everest base camp trek is not just for amazing views of the scenery, as it certainly provides opportunities to explore the evergreen forest and village with monasteries in the high region. After a half-hour flight to Lukla, the Everest base camp trek starts to ascend and descend through the rugged path through the jungle, village and hill. Your holiday in Nepal will always be missed by trekking to Everest base camp looking at the heart-beating views in nearly 3600 from every move.
