Everest Base Camp trek

The trek has two base camps - the South Base Camp in Nepal, and the North Base Camp in Tibet. The South Base Camp is the more popular route, and is attempted by many thousands each year. This is a non-technical trek and does not require rock climbing or rappelling skills, which makes it the ideal introduction to high altitude climbing for amateur trekkers and adventurists. On the Mount Everest Base Camp trek, life is simple. You trek all day, explore some of the world's most scenic terrain, and go to spots where many trekkers and adventurers dream of visiting.

The trek begins Lukla, a quaint little village that lies at 9000 feet and the trail leads you through a scenic route of forests, rocky terrain and heady mountain peaks towards Khumbu Glacier, where the Base Camp is set up. At the end of the day, you shrug your backpack off and drop to the ground to rest, while your tireless team sets up tents and cooks delicious meals for you.

Trip Description
The trek to Everest Base Camp is on the wishlist of every high-altitude trekker, and for good reason!

But with this package, you'll also get to take a day trip to the Everest Expedition Camp, where you'll eat lunch with the team that is attempting to summit Everest this year! You'll be able to interact with them, and spend a day at the Expedition Camp, which no other Everest Base Camp trek offers you.
