Everest Base Camp Trek

NepalHike & Trek, Nature

The very name "Everest" draws wide attention. But the world's highest mountains, their glaciers and moraine are not the only features in this unique National Park. The Solu-Khumbu region is also home to the famous Sherpa people and their ancient culture and religion. The chance of seeing rare flora and fauna is also high.
