Everest Base Camp is one of the most famous Everest treks. Home to some of the highest peaks in the world including Mt. Everest, the trek is a life time experience. The trek initiates from Lukla after a breathtaking trans-Himalaya flight of about 40 Minutes following South Everest Route (Pioneered by 1953 Everest Expedition). The trekking to Everest Base Camp is more than just a trek as every corner in the trail provides photo opportunity – exotic flora and fauna, alpine woodlands, deep gorges formed by rushing Himalayan rivers, beautiful forests, glacial moraines, monasteries bestowed with colorful prayer flags; carved prayer mani stones line the trails, and the Sherpa villages!!! Everest has long been the ultimate destination for hard-core trekkers to seek the challenge of reaching its Base Camp. Aside from breathtaking scenery, trekkers here can experience unique Sherpa culture by visiting different monasteries and museums along the way. The trek to the base of Mount Everest will definitely exceed your outlook. CNN International has also recommended Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal as one of the best top ten adventure trip in the world.
