Everest Base Camp Trek will retrace the footsteps of New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay who reached the summit on their epic ascent in 1953. Heading into the Sherpa heartland of Khumbu Valley allows you to gradually acclimatize on your way to Base Camp (BC). The scenery is awe-inspiring, with the Khumbu region boasting 4 of the world’s 6 tallest peaks, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Cho Oyu. Trekking in the Himalayan ranges gives you a first-hand glimpse into the life of world-famous climbers -the Sherpas.
