How it feels to be at top of the Everest Base Camp


EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK

Trekking to the Everest Base Camp (EBC) is the quite challenging and most trekkers with typical physical wellness can complete it. It’s all about walking in the foothills of the world’s highest mountain peak by capturing awesome scenarios and gathering adventure to share with friends and family.

HOW IT FEELS TO BE AT TOP OF THE EVEREST BASE CAMP

                                When it comes about trekking then everyone remembers one country at first which is Nepal. So do I. I was planning some ways to spend my vacation. I searched for some of the top trekking destinations around the world and then I found a website www.missionhimalayatreks.com. There was a very cheap scheme for Everest Base Camp Trek. I checked other websites too, but the price was impressive here. I left a mail to them at info@missionhimalayatreks.com and they responded to me shortly. They explained me about Everest Base Camp Trek in more detail. Listening to them I got goosebumps.  Then I fixed my trip to EBC trek with mission Himalaya treks.

 

ARRIVAL TO NEPAL FOR EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK

            By consulting with the owner of Mission Himalaya Treks, I went to the Everest Base Camp Trek. Initially, I prepared tourist visa for Nepal. Then after arriving Kathmandu, Nepal, I contacted Mr.Duwadi (CEO of Mission Himalaya Treks). He personally greeted and welcomed me. That day we went to Mr.Duwadi’s farm house and spent a night. He arranged me some groups and this make our trek price bit low. Then we went to Everest Base Camp. I have explained how I went to Everest Base Camp from Kathmandu here. 26 letters of English Alphabets could not describe my feeling how I felt while being at the top of the Everest.

 

HOW I FELT TO BE A PART IN EVEREST BASE CAMP TREK

            I don’t think I can explain how exciting that to trek in the Everest was. Then I realized, yes this is the reason why Everest Base Camp Trek is the best trekking destinations. And the guides, trekkers were so humble and social, they won my heart. When we started EBC trek, we saw high peaks around us. The large mountain range was near my eyes. It was morning and the sunshine has glowed the White Mountains golden. I was in no mood to stop clicking and capturing the environment.

The peak of this trekking is to see the 360-degree see including 3 of the universes' most elevated mountains Mt Everest (8848m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m) and Mt. Makalu (8462m) from Kala Patthar (5545m) which is the most astounding point can become to by strolling. The Sagarmatha National Park isn't just the property of Nepal yet in addition of the world on account of its rich world legacies. Khumbu is the home of the world's well known Sherpa individuals.

Additionally, the various assortment of fauna and greenery, the world's greatest icy mass, Sherpa culture, the brilliant mountains, several cloisters, stupas and Chortens, and the Tibetan expressions all make your excursion profoundly heart contacting.
