Everest Base Camp Trekking - 13 Days

Everest Base Camp Trekking is world’s famous and most adventurous trekking in the world. It has been recommended by many people and media. This is included in top ten things to do before you die. It is 13 days trekking. The trek further offers the opportunities to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site that is home to a variety of Himalayan floras and Faunas, and, of course, the most gratifying of them all, the trip to Everest Base Camp itself.

The Everest Base Camp trek is the grandest walk in the land of the Himalayas. Trekking through the Everest region offers astounding mountain views, and opportunities to get a glimpse into the life of world-famous climbers.

First conquered by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, Everest has traditionally been the ultimate goal for mountaineers. Today hard-core trekkers seek the challenge of reaching the mountaineer’s Base Camp. It is more than a mountain and the journey to its base camp is more than just a trek. Along a route dubbed by some as “the steps to heaven,” every bend in the trail provides another photo opportunity – beautiful forests, Sherpa villages, glacial moraines, and foothills.
