The Everest Base Camp Trek is certainly one of the most popular trekking packages in Nepal as well as a once-in-a-lifetime experience that leads you to the base of the highest mountain on the planet. An ultimate goal for trekkers from across the globe, this astounding 14-day trekking route in Nepal takes the hikers towards the cultural richness and the natural beauty enveloped in the Khumbu region. Treading from the backyard of the ethnic Sherpa clans and frequent encounters with high altitude charming monasteries, this splendid trek commences with a mind-boggling flight to Lukla, the inevitable spot to begin your nature walk. The spectacular trail leads through numerous suspension bridges adorned with multi-hued prayer flags, marvelous rhododendron forests, picturesque villages, gushing streamlets, steep ridges, awesome glaciers, and glacial moraines. The frequent rewards of the nature hike are the stupendous views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Lobuche, Khumbutse, Pumori and many other Himalayan giants. The world heritage enlisted site of Sagarmatha National Park is a major highlight during the walk to the base camp. Another cultural highlight would undoubtedly be a visit to the highly sanctimonious Tengboche Monastery. The morning stroll up to the black rock Kala Patthar offers the most dramatic and elegant views of the gigantic Everest along with a mesmerizing sunrise observation.

Frequent trekkers who are physically fit and have sound health, with a nominal exposure to high altitudes can book this easy trekking in Nepal. The entire trekking trip is easy yet the only challenging factor is the altitude, which seems to contribute to making the adventurous journey in the Himalayas more difficult. Best seasons to trek to the Everest Base Camp are spring and autumn when the weather mostly remains perfect. Join Royal Holidays to get attached with the indigenous people in the Khumbu region and gather a huge experience of the far-flung villages and culture of the ethnic Sherpas. Take delight in the picturesque landscapes and the eye-catching mountain vistas. All you need is good health and a strong determination to hike along the exotic and enchanting trails roving through luxuriant valleys, alpine meadows, countless streams, and suspension bridges.
