Lifetime experience trekking to Everest Base Camp Trek

For a person who loves Himalayas, the very mention of “Everest” sends tremors down his/her spine. At least that’s the case with me. Everest is the highest peak in the world and is one of the 14 mountain peaks higher than 8000 meters (26246 feet) collectively called Eight-thousanders.

Being an avid mountain lover and a person who has covered almost every wilderness spot in the Indian side of the Himalayas and parts of Tibet, Mt. Everest has always been a place where I so badly want to go.

As Indians, we are so close to Mt Everest, we should feel very lucky to be at the foot of Sagarmatha. But it’s not simple, you need a lot of preparations and training to go to Everest and scale it. Even a trek to the base camp of Everest is one of the toughest treks in the world.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is the ultimate experience one can think of the Himalayas. The magnificent highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest (8,848m) plays hide and seek all along with you during this trek. The trek route lies in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal and is amidst elevated peaks and local Sherpa villages. This trek experience is one of the biggest thrills which an adventure lover can get. The Buddhist monasteries along the way help the traveler to get a close look into the history and influence of Tibet in the daily life of Sherpas. Their understanding and adaption of the landscape leave one surprised and impressed.

Surrounded by 4 out of 6 highest peaks in the world including Lhotse (8,501m), Mt. Makalu (8,470m), and Cho Oyu (8,201m) Everest Base Camp Trek is an excellent choice for those looking for enjoying nature at its fullest together with rich local culture.

Walking those peaceful rocky trails enclosed by huge snow peaks can be exciting. Whole expedition starting from Kathmandu (1,350m) all the way to Kala Patthar (5,545m) spending overnight in villages like Tengboche (3,870m) and Dingboche (4,360m) is a trek full of risk. But what is an adventure without a risk?
