The Everest Base Camp Trek begins with a short flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Upon landing at the Lukla airport, which is one of the highest-located airports in the world, you can immediately feel the fresh air of the Himalaya. The Himalayan breeze coruscates down the peaks and brushes the hills with a refreshingly chilly patina. The trekking trail then branches off towards various ethnic Sherpa settlements and villages before finally concluding at the base camp of the world’s tallest Himalayan peak.

The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of the most famous trekking adventures in Nepal. It takes place in the Khumbu region of the country, home of the magnificent Everest Himalayas. The journey is a beautiful adventure filled with Khumbu’s best natural, cultural and Himalayan facets. It is one of the best opportunities to enjoy the mighty Everest peaks up close. The sight of the majestic Himalayas of the Everest massif is something that is indescribable in words. They are truly breath-taking and awe-inspiring. Paired with the cultural presence of the region, the journey is an unforgettable trip that will definitely stick to one’s minds for many years.
