Round Trip Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu Everest Base Camp Trek
With eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountains vistas. Everest trek in justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain ( 8848m ) but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages great variety of cultures and traditions, Colourful festivals and monasteries.The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park. The story of the yeti is still a mystery to the world from the Khumbu region.

The trek begins with rather "scary" flight to mountain airstrip of Lukla at 2800 metres and passes through the picturesque Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar to Gorakshep culminating in the "ascent" of Kala Pattar (5500 m) from where classic views of Everest and its surrounding peaks are available. Most of the trek is spent above altitudes of 3000 meters in the Khumbu and Imja valleys, whose skylines are dominated by the massive peaks of the Eastern Himalayas.
