12 Days Everest Base Camp Trek

Whatever you imagine about Mt Everest, multiply it by 10 but even if you do that, you won't come even half way near the reality. It's arduous. It's chilling. It will test every fiber in your body....and even more in your mind. But it's achievable. But what else is Everest? It's a veritable carnival for the senses. It's bright to the eyes. It's glistening to the touch. It rings with the pristine echo of silence. It's a resonating wake-up call for the spirit. It's Sherpa culture. It's Nepalese hospitality. It's Buddhism at its purest and rawest.
