Everest Base Camp

Follow the footsteps of the Legendary Summiteers.

Everest Base Camp

Mount Everest or Sagarmatha (Nepali name) or Chomolungma (Tibetan name), standing tall and proud is the most amazing thing in the planet. Journey to its base camp is more than just an ordinary trek, nicknamed by many as steps to heaven. Everest base camp trekking is the most popular journey in Nepal done by thousands of visitors every year.

An average country walk in the high hills and passes which is mostly uphill, taking one to the typical Sherpa villages, rich with Buddhist religion and culture, is sure to enchant you from the day you step into the Everest (Khumbu) region. Join the group of professional leading Nepal Adventure Team and its local mountain Sherpa guides in this epic adventure. This is the most frequently organized trekking packages by the expert team of Sherpa Royal Trek & Expedition.
