A trek to Mount Everest Base Camp is more than a pilgrimage. It is a personal challenge with a clear goal at the end. It is a trek that passes deep into Sherpa country, among some of the world’s most awe-inspiring peaks. From the airstrip at Lukla, the trail leads north, deep into the mountainous Khumbu, the dizzyingly high Sherpa people’s homeland, close to the border of Tibet.
Mount Everest has tempted adventurers and mountain climbers from times unrecalled. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Since these honourable men climbed Mount Everest, the trekking tour to Everest Base Camp has become an achievable goal for most people. The trek in the Everest region is a “must do” for those who want to experience the most natural high in the world.
Aside from breath taking mountain scenery, travellers to the region can experience the unique Sherpa culture by visiting monasteries and villages along the trekking trail. Days are filled with walking past colourful prayer wheels and across suspension bridges amidst a blend of natural beauty, fascinating culture and warm Nepalese hospitality from the Sherpa people of Khumbu. This makes the trek to Everest Base Camp one of the world most unforgettable trekking routes.
