Our unforgettable Everest Base Camp Trek starts when we board our flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and behold breathtaking views along the way. When we land we will journey towards the Sagarmatha (Mt Everest) National Park following the trail along the scenic landscapes. Along the way you will see manyBuddhist Gompas and monasteries nestled among the towering peaks. As we move on the trail leads us into the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar. From this vantage we will have a phenomenal view of Tengboche, Dingboche and Nagarjuna. As we pass through this rocky trail, the alpine forests, the rushing glacial rivers combined with the astonishing mountain views are simply breath taking. Moving further along the trail we reach the famous paramount vantage point, Kala Patthar providing us the symmetrical 360-degree panoramic view of the world’s highest mountains.
