Everest base camp Trek Guides
Everest has always been the desirable name among all the people around the world,mostly the adventure lovers. To reach at
an altitude of 8,848m is not an easy task, it requires a lot of hard effort and dedication. It can be the greatest achievement in one’s life, overcoming the fear of the harshness of the nature. Mount Everest is also known as Chomolongma which resembles the meaning as a mother earth. Everest was successfully conquered by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in the year 1953 for the first time. Following the same route discovered by them thousands of travelers each make an attempt to conquer the highest peak of the world annually. Though some of them became successful whereas some lost their life. Though,who cant make it to the peak fulfill the desire of the having glimpse of Mount Everest from its base,from the base camp (5,320m).
