There are two base camps for Mt. Everest. The first one is South Everest Base Camp and the last is North Everest Base Camp, but both are not located in the same country. The former lies in Nepal whereas the latter is located in China. However, the legendary figures of the first Everest Climbers, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa had used the South Everest Base Camp as a route to reaching on top of Everest. By inspiring them, the popularity of trekking to Everest Base Camp in Nepal is getting higher and every year thousands of tourists visit Nepal for engaging in this trekking. In order to join the trekking to Everest Base Camp, everyone must take permission from the Nepal government which can be managed by every trekking office in Nepal.

The South face of Everest Base Camp with an elevation of 5,334 m is a highly demanding trekking destination in the world. It has a tiny piece of land in front of the North face of Everest Base Camp. It is the most beautiful place in the world surrounded by snowcapped peaks like Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori mountains. The rounded ice tower on the upper side of Khumbu glacier is breathtaking. Similarly, the astonishing views of the world’s highest Everest giants can be seen from the top of Kalapatthar located nearby its base camp. We have no words to explain its beauty. As a result, Mt. Everest Peak has been a dream attraction of legendary mountaineers and others too who have a keen desire to trek and may not want to miss the opportunity to do the Everest Base Camp Trek. Generally, the Climbers spend several days in this base camp for well acclimatization and getting the reduced possibility of altitude sickness. The trekkers also take a rest in some places before getting into Everest’s Southern Base Camp.

There are two accessible ways for entering the Everest region of Nepal. The Jiri to Everest Base Camp trek is the first option used by the first Everest Expedition Team which suits for those who have a long period of vacation and also opt for walking more. On the other hand, the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is another easy way that saves almost a week of trekking time. However, it is the choice of travelers but the scenic flight to Lukla over the Everest ranges is getting popular nowadays. The incredible Everest views including other towering peaks can be seen almost all the way to its base camp. The Sherpa Highlands, their costumes and cultures as well as the monasteries help to provide complimentary to trekking to Everest Base Camp. The walking along the forest of rhododendron, fir, oaks, and juniper are also outstanding. The movements of wild animals are enjoyable. The legendary Yetis are used for shipping goods in higher elevations. At last, Mt. Everest and other peaks above the 8000 m such as Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho you, and Mt. Lhoste are the major highlights of Everest Base Camp Trek.
