Everest Base Camp trek:- Mountain Everest is highest peak all over the world.Mount Everest, also known in Nepal as Sagarmatha and in Tibet as Chomolungma this is Earth’s highest mountain. Its peak is 8,848 meters above sea level. Mount Everest is in the Mahalangur Range.

Mount Everest is surrounded by a number of substantial peaks, including Lhotse, (27,940 feet/8,516 meters); Nuptse, (25,771 feet/7,855 meters); and Changtobse, (24,870 feet/7,580 meters).

The people living in the highlands of the Everest area are certainly Nepalese but being the descendant of the Tibetan origin so they are look like the Tibetans.

Those higher altitudes cannot support animal life or vegetation; however, birch, juniper, blue pines, firs, bamboo and rhododendron grow in the lower areas. There are no plants above 18,690 feet (5,750 meters).

Musk deer, wild yak, red panda, snow leopard and Himalayan black bears inhabit lower altitudes. There are also small numbers of Himalayan thars, deer, langur monkeys, hares, mountain foxes, martens, and Himalayan wolves.

Trekking through some of the most rugged, natural and arguably; the most beautiful terrain in the world.All this amidst ecstatic and breathtaking views of some of the tallest peaks found on the planet.coupled with ever-so-peaceful, serene monasteries; and cultures and traditions shrouded in mystery.

The “Everest Base Camp trek” is a classic trek which follows in the footsteps of Hillary & Tenzing and ends with an ascent of Kala Pathar for superb views of Everest.  Before reaching the Everest Base camp, the trail follows the Khumbu Glacier with huge ice pinnacles soaring to unbelievable height.

This trek starts with an exhilarating 35 minutes mountain flight into the airstrip at Lukla. It is not long before you glimpse your first view of Everest as it peeks above the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge.  This is truly a classic trek, which undoubtedly gives one of the best mountain views in the world. Accommodation and food is provided in the local lodges.
