Everest Base Camp Trek Brief Insight

Everest Base Camp Trek is assuredly the best destination to visit once in a lifetime. There is no any other trekking destination or spot in the world that can compare to the adventure and excitement you receive while trekking in this region.

Everest Base Camp lies in the Khumbu district of Nepal and is one of the most popular trekking destinations of Nepal. It is the area where lies 4/6 of the universe’s tallest top mountains such as Mount Lhotse, Mount Makalu, Cho Oyu including the world’s tallest ‘Mt. Everest’, which delegates the towering edges that straddles the denying Himalayas.

Luxury Trek in the Everest region is an ideal spot for trekking for its astounding excellence of ‘Top of the world.’ The spectacular views of the snow-capped mountains you witness along the trail and the beautiful Buddhist Chortens and colorful prayer flags adds more excitement and pleasure on your journey.

Everest region is the perfect approach to experience your fantasy in a genuine way to the world’s tallest peak (8,848m). With the point of convergence of your eyes, you detect the sentiment of being in heaven. This is a perfect trekking destination for vacations or holidays or simply fulfilling your dream of being in the lap of the world’s tallest peak.

As the base camp is at the rise of 5,340m, we are unlikely to get the wonderful and clear view of the Mount Everest, so we climb up to Kala Patthar 5,550m for the best view of the Mount Everest. You can try Everest View Trek for a marvelous view of Mount Everest.

If we leave for Kala Patthar early in the morning when it’s still dark, you will also get to witness a spectacular view of the sunrise from between the mountains. You also can have Everest Trek via Gokyo Lakes with our MFN Team.
