About Everest Base Camp
The seduction of Mount Everest has long been known to travellers, climbers and adventurers alike. The region of the Sherpa people is famous not just for it’s fabulous peaks but also for its people, those of the Khumbu region whose tremendous ability have been the lifeline for many Westerners wanting to climb in their home area. Surrounded by the world of Tibetan Buddhism trek the trek is for many a pilgrimage to one of the most remarkable countries on earth.
Reaching Everest Base Camp is a feasible goal for most fit trekkers; it is a well-trodden path but this should not put you off as each individual will leave with memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. Added to that the convenience and camaraderie of a staff of Sherpas and porters who will make the necessary arrangements for food and accommodation along the route, leaving you to enjoy the stunning mountain scenery that each day will bring.
There will be an exciting opportunity to visit the Base Camp of the highest mountain in the world, trekking easily through lush forests and stunning mountain scenery over a period of two weeks. It is not technical and much of the enjoyment is immersing yourself in such a slow and easy routine, with only the elements, the mountains and the quiet character of the people to accompany you.
