Trekking to Everest Base Camp

The Everest Base Camp trip is a Nepalese trek that leads to Mount Everest's base camp, the world's highest summit. The trek takes you through Nepal's Khumbu region, which is known for its natural beauty and cultural legacy. As you approach higher elevations, it becomes more difficult; there are steep ascents and descents along the road, and you must be prepared for chilly temperatures at night.

The journey takes about two weeks and brings you past charming villages with colourful prayer flags hung from roofs and walls. Along the way, you'll see snowy mountains, lush woods, bubbling rivers, mountainous communities, terraced fields covered with barley, apple trees, juniper trees, chir pine trees, oak trees, medicinal plants like aloe vera, and all surrounded by stunning mountains at every turn!
