Everest Base Camp Trekking Via Cho_La pass 22 days


The route taken by Sir Edmund Hillari and Tenzing in 1953 to Everest provides the classic trekking experience in the Himalayas. This trip offers the enchanting sights of Lukla trail in the higher Khumbu, and relaxed observation of the diverse flora and fauna in the mid altitude regions on the approach to the Khumbu valley, the famed Everest territory. The final leg of this trek is quite strenuous with a series of ascents and descents, trekking against the grain of the Himalayas. However, these challenges are softened by traditional exquisite tea houses, small hamlets of hardy mountain people and monasteries on the back drop of towering Himalayas, to make it one of the most delightful walks in Nepal.
