Beginning from Lukla, we will walk through all the Sherpa villages on our way to the Everest and back. Stand on the foot of Mount Everest and gaze at the majestic giant all you can.
The Everest Base Camp is where all mountaineers begin their summit of the highest peak in the world. But wait, the journey begins quite before that. You have to walk through gorges, valleys, rivers, forests and villages to reach the base camp itself. And that is what we will do. Although we will not attempt to scale the Everest, we will set foot on it nevertheless. It is not the same but it comes quite close.
