This exciting trek in the Everest region gives you the opportunity to witness Mt. Everest from the ground, while taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalayas.
Ever since the days of early climbing expeditions, this 29,035 foot mountain has had a lure of its own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze at its icy faces.
Naturally, the trail to the base camp of the mountain has become one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal, yet few people return from the trek unmoved by the experience of being surrounded by the highest peaks in the world.
The adventure of trekking in the Everest region starts with a flight into the tiny airstrip of Lukla. You will spend several days trekking through the homelands of the Sherpa people and through their villages and Buddhist monasteries, with views of Everest and neighboring Ama Dablam, considered by many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal.
Stroll around Namche Bazaar, the bustling market town in the heart of Sherpa country and soak up the magnificent mountain scenery.
Without doubt, the highlights of the trek are the awe-inspiring views of some of the most amazing mountains in the world which unfold the further you venture into the Khumbu Valley; not forgetting, of course, the personal sense of achievement in reaching Everest Base Camp at 17,500 ft.
