Mt. Everest, considered to be the jewel of the Himalayas, is the tallest mountain in the world. It stands 29,000 feet above sea level and is the destination for trekkers and adventurers from all over the world. The Everest base camp offers some of the oldest and most treasured spots on earth where one can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the cliffs, towering glaciers and forested hills. Trekkers can also experience the beauty of nature and the local Sherpa traditions of Nepal. The trek to camp begins on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and land at Tenzing Hillary Airport. The flight takes about 30 minutes and then you’ll be landing in the mountain top village. The whole place is buzzing with excitement as trekkers and guides are busy preparing for the trek. The air at the higher elevation is cool and crisp with lush and serene mountain villages and a breathtaking view of the mountains makes the trip a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The trekkers make stops at the Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep on the way to Everest Base Camp. We can spend the night in some of these villages and experience the hospitality of the locals. It is a 2-day trek to Namche Bazaar, which is the trading hub of the mountain. The natural beauty of the Khumbu glacier is one of the best features of the trek. Each stop along the route is an experience in culture and hospitality. The trek to Everest Base Camp is an adventure that one must experience once in their life.
