On our Everest Base Camp Trek, we follow the footsteps of legend Sir Edmund Hillary as we ascend from verdant Lukla Airport to the vast glaciers and razor-sharp ridge-lines of the Everest Himalayas, home of the world's highest peaks. Along the way, we will encounter most hospitable and friendly Sherpa people and get to know their lifestyle, colorful festivals & Buddhist monasteries surrounded by unique flora and fauna. Also trail passes with the carved Mani stone, Prayer flags, Prayer wheels and singing prayers for everyone’s well-being. Perhaps even a glimpse of the mysterious Yeti (just Kidding).
