My dream or a thing that was always in my bucket list is a trek to the great Everest Base and my dream came true when my Face book Friends gang had surprised me by taking me to this place as a birthday treat. Thanks friends for showing me heaven in this form.

Overview

About the Destination:

The Mount Everest Base Camp trek is the next best thing to climbing the mountain. Follow the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay as you navigate dangerous, ever-changing and breath-taking passes. Get to visit the Tengbohe monastery, discover the incredible Khumbu glacier and the Gokyo Lake, experience Tibetan culture and perhaps even search for Yeti, the mythical abominable snowman of the mountains.

Located at 5,550m above sea level, trekking to the Everest base camp is packed with tons of trekking, camping and cultural experiences. Apart from passing through celebrated and unconventional trails including the treks to Kalapathar and Nagakarshang, you will also visit the Sagarmatha National Park, discover the Imja glacier that is turning into a lake due to global warming, and enjoy great camaraderie from fellow travellers and crew members.

Altitude: 5,550 Mts.
