The Everest Base Camp is one of the best travel destinations in the world. The trip consists of the same trails Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay chose to reach the summit of the world.
The Everest Base Camp 12 days trek is moderate grade trek. This means you do not need any experiences with trekking and everyone can do it. Make sure you do physical activities before a week or so since you will be walking about 6 – 7 hours daily.
You can see beautiful mountains in every trail of Everest Base Camp. Thus, it is full-on one of the most beautiful places to enjoy the panorama of mountains. The scenic beauty starts with the flight to Lukla. You will witness view of Mount Everest and Tengboche Monasteries. You will also see the most beautiful mountain in the world, Ama Dablam.
Furthermore, you will pass through Sagarmatha National Park. This is also one of the UNESCO Natural World Heritage Sites. On the trip, you will find musk deer, Himalayan Thar, and pheasants.
In the beautiful village of Namche Bazaar, you will see the settlement of the Sherpas. You will find the place with mani walls and shrines for people following Buddhism. There will be many small villages and you will find authentic beauty of the settlements.
Besides that, you will walk on Khumbu Glacier, the world’s highest glacier. You will also see Dudh Koshi River and pass through Hillary Suspension Bridge. Trekking there in the springs or the autumns will be the best timing. The views are very clear and crisp in those times. Whereas in the winters, it will be difficult to trek there.
Also, you will see the view of Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu from Dingboche. Moreover, you will also see Cholatse, Taboche, Louche West and Lobuche East peaks as well. Khumbu Glacier, Khumbutse, Lingtren, Pumori and Mahalangur peaks are more.
Moreover, from Dingboche, you will see the expedition team preparing for Mt. Everest. If the paths collide, you will also get to talk to them about the experience and more. Talking with strangers will give you new lessons and a different joy.
The simplicity of the Sherpas and the culture of Buddhism will surround you with peace and calm. Living a day or two with them will also give you a homely feeling even though you are away from your family.
