Everest base camp trekking:- As you near Rongbuk at 5000 meter, the trek gets more adventurous. A mere thought of Everest Base Camp nestled few kilometers away from you at Rongbuk is sufficient enough to heighten your adventure spirit. Amidst the picturesque surreally sculpted Rongbuk glaciers, you trek up to Everest Base Camp. A seemingly infinite series of broad ridge-top paths and alpine meadows leads to Lamna La pass at 5,150 meters overlooking splendid panorama. You can explore rarely-visited areas amid glacier-carved environment.

Everest trekking offers you great opportunity to have unique experience. The Everest area is situated in eastern Nepal. It is protected by the Sagarmatha National Park, established in 1976 with an area of 1148 square kilometers. The park is largely composed of the rugged terrain and gorges of the high Himalayas. Altitude ranges from 2845 meters above sea level (9,330ft) to the top of the world, Mt. Everest at 8848 meters (29,028ft). Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, which is known in Nepal as “Sagarmatha” the goddess mother of the world, has long been the greatest attraction for nature lovers and trekkers alike. Solukhumbu, the heartland of the Everest Region and an integral part of the Himalayan mystique, thus provides a welcome destination for these adventurers.

Throughout this trek trekkers are overwhelmed with views of unbelievable peaks, Buddhist monasteries, and friendly Sherpa villages. Perhaps some may even have a glance of the Yeti! The local people believe that the Pangboche Monastery actually has in its possession the real scalp of this Himalayan legend. As we proceed slowly to allow for maximum acclimation, we will have plenty of opportunity to visit monasteries and Sherpa homes of this region. Most of our Sherpa crew comes from the Sherpa households of this area. Incredible views of Everest and the surrounding peaks are the inescapable fare while we ascend Kala Patthar.

Before you head off high into wilderness of Tibetan highlands you shall be expertly guided to the exquisite sights of around Lhasa, Gyangtse, and Shigatse.
