The Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is the most popular trek in the Himalayas and is visited by thousands of trekkers each year. Trekking through the Everest region offers breathtaking views on 4 of the 6 highest peaks in the world: Mt Everest (8.848 m), Mt Lhotse (8.516 m), Mt Makalu (8.485 m), and Mt Cho Oyu (8.201 m). Besides that, you'll have the opportunity to get a glimpse into the life of the Sherpa’s – the most famous climbers in the world. Expect to go sightseeing around Sagarmatha National Park too! Sagarmatha is the Nepalese name of Mt Everest and means The Top of the World. Sagarmatha National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is home to many unique plants and animals. You can also get a closer look at the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world and learn about the Sherpa's spiritual perspective on the mountains. And of course, as a top highlight itself – the trip to Everest Base Camp (5.364 m) with the thrill of being up close to the highest mountain in the world.
