The Everest Base Camp / EBC (5,364m) Trek is one of the most famous trekking routes in the world. It is once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the breath taking sceneries of Beautiful Himalayas. The Everest Base Camp trek is a tough challenge and not to be taken lightly with generally well graded paths but some tougher sections along the Khumbu glacier. It is suitable for people who are generally fit and are used to walking in the hills. It is an experience never to be forgotten. On the Everest Base camp trek, we reach the height of 5545 metres, and are well within the reach of the average hill walker. If you have ever longed to set eyes on our highest mountain, then the view from Everest base camp will stay with you forever. The trek gives an insight into the lives and culture of the Sherpas. The Jiri-Everest trekking adds a new taste to highly popular Everest Base camp Trekking.
