The Everest Base camp rests at the base of the world’s tallest peak Mt. Everest (8848m) at the height of 5364m; one of the world’s most spectacular places and top on the wishlist of the trek-lovers around the world. It’s one of those majestic experiences in life to sit at the base of the world’s tallest peak and face it right before the eyes. Famous for its giant mountain peaks, this trek provides the glimpse of Sherpas (the inhabitants of Khumbu region, best known as mountain climbers) and their lifestyles, Himalayan flora and faunas and high altitude landscapes.
