Overview

Everest Base Camp trek is an astounding trek to the base of the highest peak of the world Mr. Everest (8,850 m.). The trekking route goes through Sagarmatha National park which is a listed the world heritage site. The settlement is dominated by Sherpa people, and old Buddhist Monasteries are found in plenty in this area. Since it is a high-altitude and adventurous trek, one going on this trek should be physically sound. 

As straight climbing can be harmful, trekkers are advised to ensure some days for acclimatization so that they can enjoy their holiday without falling ill.
