Located on the foot of the highest mountain, the Everest (8848m), Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most visually as well as spiritually satisfying treks in Nepal. While the up-close view of the snowy peaks of the Mahalangur Himalayan range fills your heart with overwhelming beauty, the many monasteries and small Sherpa villages fill your soul with the culture and hospitality of the legendary Sherpas. The Everest Base Camp Trek begins with a flight to Lukla, an adventure in itself. The trek continues through dense coniferous forests and rocky, ice-filled terrain. With the option to see diverse flora and fauna such as the mountain goat, the snow leopard, various migratory birds, the trek offers breathtaking views of mountains such as Khumbila (5761m), Nuptse (7861m), Ama Dablam (6856m), Thamserku (6608m), and so on.
