Nepal - Everest Base Camp Trek (16 days)

Mount Everest is perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Nepal. Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world. Its elevation of 29, 035 feet (8,850 meters). The summit of Everest which is the world's tallest point is a goal that many climbers have looked forward to. Mount Everest is also known by the Tibetan name Chomolungma (Goddess Mother of the Snows). Its Nepali name is Sagarmatha (meaning Mother of the Universe).

Trekking to the Mount Everest Base Camp is in many ways similar to visit a mountain museum. The only difference is that the things on display are all real.

At the same time, it is also one of the toughest treks in Nepal primarily because of the altitude. You will be spending a minimum of 6 nights above 4,000 meters and at least 2 above 5,000 meters
