An Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal is not merely for a Holiday enjoyment but also to feel personal accomplishment. For most trekkers, Everest is "something that you must do!". If you have been in Nepal and not for Everest, the chances are that you will revisit this mystic land for EBC or if you have been in Nepal and that was for Everest the chances still remain that you come back because you will think that if you can do Everest you can do anything and vice versa.
What is in Everest trek that you don’t find in other route? Why does Everest trek has more charm than other regions? Well, although opinions may vary depending on one’s experience, my observation is that going to Everest is human! Being in Everest is a testimonial to everey adventurous soul. There are very few people who do not get nervous about Everest. It is because this trek is beyond most trekker’s comfort zone for various factors like unpredictable flight schedule, extremely erratic weather for flight, unusual geographical location and most importantly the Lukla airport itself that has been notorious for its being one of the most dangerous airstrip in the world.
However, if you flip the coin, the other side shows you all the reasons why you should be there. First of all, Everest is tantamount to trekking in Nepal. It would not be exaggeration if I say that “You have not trekked if you have not trekked in Everest”.
Also, you should be here because this is the roof of the world, the highest mountain in the world. It is also justifiably renowned for its exotic Sherpa village with Buddhist culture in the backdrop of incredible landscapes, pristine mountains and diverse flora and fauna etc.
Finally, unlike other route, Everest is the one that has stories of both “Tragedy and Triumph”. Adventure exists as long as there is presence of risk factors. So, if you believe you like adventure, you will be proud of yourself after The Everest Trek.
