Trekking in the Everest region is a life time dream of many people. To stand at the foot of the world’s tallest mountain is high up on the list of many people’s desires. This Everest Base Camp Trek is the perfect chance to take in this majestic mountain and the splendid beauty of the region’s scenery. This trek winds, climbs and descends its way through lush low land and alpine forest, Buddhist monasteries and authentic Sherpa Villages. This trek provides you the opportunity to explore the lifestyle of the Himalayan people, their religion, customs and traditions. Alluring 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 Trekking involves a remarkable amount of up and down walking. Tea house trekking is possible on the main trail to Everest Base Camp trekking. 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 Kalapatter Trek. This trek can be completed in conjunction with the Everest Base Camp Trek
