Name Everest Base Camp Trek
Trekking through some of the most rugged, natural and arguably the most beautiful terrain in the world and amidst the ecstatic and breathtaking views of some of the tallest peaks found on the planet the Everest Base Camp trek is justifiably the most famous of all trekking and mountain regions. The Everest Base Camp trek is a classic trek which follows in the footsteps of Hillary & Tenzing and ends with an ascent of Kala Pattar for superb views of Everest. Kala Patthar is also known as the ''black rock''. Populated by the Sherpas (legendary climbers), the attractions in this area are its majestic mountains, villages nestled at high altitude hillocks, isolated and mystical monasteries, and the hospitable local folks. This area includes the highest mountain in the world, Everest at 8,848m., and many of the world's 8,000m peaks such as Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu. Before reaching the Everest Base camp, the trail follows the Khumbu Glacier with huge ice pinnacles soaring to unbelievable heights.
