Everest Base Camp Trek – 15 Days.

15 Days

Everest Base Camp Kalapatthar Trek is the most popular and unique adventure destination in Himalayan life. Mount Everest attracts many climbers, some of them highly experienced mountaineers. There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the "standard route") and the other from the north in Tibet. While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, and wind, as well as significant hazards from avalanches and the khumbu icefall. Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary made the first official ascent of Everest in 1953, using the southeast ridge route. Trek to the Everest Base Camp will bring you an amazing opportunity to explore the Himalayan visa. A spectacular experience of Sherpa’s' lifestyle who happened to be world renounced climbers. You pass through the world heritage site of Sagarmatha National Park and get to observe various flora and faunas. You will come across timeless monasteries where many people attained enlightenment.
