    Destination

    Before attempting to climb the summit of Mt. Everest, most expeditions camp at the southern base camp of the mountain. The base camp is the furthest that travellers can trek without the use of mountaineering equipment. The approach route to this rudimentary campsite is surrounded by rocky ice and moraine of the Khumbu glacier. From the camp, one can catch photogenic views of higher peaks in the range as well as patches of the Khumbu icefall. The base camp is usually bustling with activity of the expedition teams in the spring season.
