On Everest Base Camp Trek-16 days we experience astounding mountain views, get glimpses of the life of the world famous climbers (the Sherpa’s), enter Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site, and tour high altitude Buddhist monasteries before accomplishing our ultimate goal-reaching the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain, Everest. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp also provides us an opportunity to embark on an epic journey that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay set off to in 1953. Nothing beats the thrill and sense of accomplishment that grips travelers on seeing the power and grace of the mighty Everest up close.
The 16-day Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary is designed for beginner trekkers who are in good health with average physical fitness. But, if you wish to take up a bigger challenge and “stay off the beaten path”, then Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes – 18 Days would be ideal. Another option for experienced trekkers with limited time would be Mount Everest Base Camp Trek – 14 Days.
