overview

The Everest Base Camp Trekking is a short trek designed for people who love trekking and would enjoy a short journey surrounded by the beautiful Himalayas. This trek offers you the opportunity to reach the base of the globe's tallest mountain, that is Mt. Everest (8848 meters).

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you are going to feel close to the natural environment. This journey is going to feel as good as a therapy to your spirit, which has been dispirited by the everyday hassles and stress. You are going to make a lot of memories on this journey as you move through dense, green forests, rocky trails, witness different floras and faunas, panoramic view of tall, snow-clad mountains and whatnot.
