Everest Base Camp Trek has been listed as number one trekking trail by National Geographic. The trek takes you to the base of Mt. Everest (8848m), the world’s highest peak as well as to the top of Kalapatthar (5643m). The trail passes through Namche Bazaar, the capital of Khumbu region and the cultural centre of Sherpa people. Visit Tengboche Monastery, one of the biggest monasteries in the Everest region and a perfect viewpoint to watch splendid and up close views of Ama Dablam (6812m).
