The trek to Everest Base Camp is strenuous, however; traveling to the lap of Mt. Everest offers you a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is highly worthwhile to trek - you will get back the value of your expenses. In many respects, the trek to the Everest Base Camp is like a trip to Willy Wonka’s Mountain factory. The only distinction is that Mountains boost your spirits, whereas chocolate improves your mood. It is jam-packed because you will be breathing, eating, playing, and pursuing mountains throughout your whole trip. On this 16-day adventure, you will see distinct ethnicities, Sherpa hospitality, Himalayan Tahrs, musk deer, and the glittering Himalayan Monal. On this ruminative voyage, nothing will be missed because becoming lost in the proper place is always enjoyable. This trip is flexible and offered by; allowing you to change the itinerary and add extra activities in Pokhara, including skydiving, paragliding, or Chitawan Jungle Safari; if you want.
You are always welcome to the heart of the Himalayas. This trek begins with an exhilarating flight to Lukla at 2800 meters. The trek passes through the charming Sherpa village of Namche to Gorakshep which comes to the end with the ascent of Kalapattar (5545m) from where we can see the great views of Everest and its surrounding peaks closer. Most of the days in the journey, we remain above 3000 meter around the Khumbu and Imja valley. 
There will be plenty of time to enjoy the culture of the Sherpas, visit ancient monasteries and learn how Lamaistic Buddhism influences Sherpa Life during the trek.  There are multiple places to stop and enjoy tea or coffee and can have a glass of local millet beer and get the taste of unique hospitality Sherpas, gazing at the multi-hued prayer flags, prayer wheels, and intricately – carved Mani stones lien very hilltop, rock wall and trail side singing prayers to the gods with every breeze and every passing traveler.
The mountains can be seen from Kalapattar (5545m) are Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse. Changtse in Tibet is also visible from the summit. We also get a good panoramic view of Amadablam, Tawoche, and KusumKanguru, completely from a different outlook.
