14 days Everest Base Camp Trek is absolutely one of the most and best trekking destinations in the world, located in Sagarmatha National Park surrounded by heavens of mountains.

Plan

Everest Base Camp Trekking will give you an incredible experience and astonishing scenery of the highest mountain of the Himalaya. Since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay conquered the Mt. Everest in 1953, many have visited `The Land of the Sherpa’ to wonder at this achievement. Trekking to Everest Base camp has become one of the most daring challenges to be able to stand on top of the world. Many tourists come at this camp to experience the spectacular view of Mt. Everest. This trekking is a combination of adventure, exploration of the unique culture of local people and the trail to hidden monasteries. The price is fixed as per your request and trek planning. The best season to go Everest base camp Trekking is autumn (Sep. to Dec) and spring (March to May) and its path will be crowded. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views but the nights are cold. Winter (Dec, Jan, and Feb) is also good for Everest Base Camp Trek, the only issue is extreme cold. Summer and monsoon (June and July) will be rainy but less crowded and you can enjoy the best of nature.
