Why You Should Do Everest Base Camp Trek

Why You Should Do Everest Base Camp Trek

Mount Everest is the most famous mountain peak in the country and the world; this trek is the base camp of the highest mountain in the world. The trek is also known as the “steps of heaven,” as the view from here is unlike another you have seen on any trek. Everest Base Camp trek presents a beautiful opportunity to experience the grandeur of the Himalayas, the imposing challenge and thrill of the climb, and the charming culture of Nepal.

  • Culture – Experience the culture by visiting beautiful monasteries like Tengboche Monastery. If you want to learn about the mountain history of the Himalayas, you can visit the Sherpa Cultural Museum. You will also see Stupas (Buddhist shrines), prayer flags, and mani walls (with Buddhist prayers carved into them).
  • Wildlife – Go sightseeing in Sagarmantha National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site where you can see animals like snow leopards, Himalayan goats & eagles, and blue sheep. You could spot the Danphe Pheasant, a national bird of Nepal, musk deer, Himalayan Tahr, Himalayan Monals, and Himalayan goat that looks like an antelope.
  • Forest – As you begin your trek from Pangpoche, you will see birch, oak, and rhododendron forest. At Tengboche, you will be spotting conifers; Namche Bazaar has a picturesque sight of pine forest.
  • Mountains – Upon reaching Namche, you will see a few Himalayan giants like Everest, Kantege, Nuputse, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Kwangde, Tawache, Kongderei and Thamserku. You will trek among the most prominent Himalayas mountains and see the legacy left behind by the greatest mountaineers.
  • Gorak Shep is the most inhabited village in the world; by visiting this village, you will understand how locals live their lives at such a height.
  • Glaciers – Khumbu Glacier lies between Everest and Lhotse; ass you ascend towards base camp, you’ll cross the glacier’s lower sections and marvel at its vast ice seracs and crevasses.
  • Rivers – The Dudh Koshi, also known as the “Milk River,” is one of the major rivers in the Everest region. It originates from the Ngozumpa Glacier and flows southward through the entire Khumbu Valley. You’ll cross the Dudh Koshi River multiple times during the trek, often on sturdy suspension bridges adorned with prayer flags.
