It is an uphill journey that took hikers from the low-lying hills of Nepal to the base camp of the worlds highest peaks. Not surprisingly, people from all over the world visit Nepal for this feat. This adventure is worth mentioning because it provides amazing highlights and features that capture the true nature of Nepali Himalayan life and terrain. From the rich Sherpa culture to the azure shadows of the mighty Everest Himalayas, Everest Base Camp Trekking is a must-see journey! Here are main 3 reasons for your Everest base camp in Nepal.
Landing to the Lukla
Everest base camp trekbegins with flights to Lukla. Although this is not the only way to Khumbu, it is undoubtedly the simplest and shortest route. Its also a favorite. The flight to Lukla itself was like a small adventure. Lukla Airport (also known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport) sits on top of a cliff and drops down at the end of the runway. In fact, airport runways are considered to be one of the shortest runways on the planet. Correspondingly, a short flight to Lukla will surely remain in the minds of all who do it, as the flight offers spectacular views of the rolling mountains. As people leave the hill and enter the Himalaya foothills, it presents a beautiful view of the changing terrain.
The Sherpa Culture
The Khumbu region of Nepal is a highly concentrated Sherpa paradise. Everests legendary Sherpa culture is the subject of awe and inspiration for most people in the world. In this way,Everest Base Camp Trekkingprovides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the Sherpas legendary culture and traditions up close. In fact, the Sherpa are famous for their almost superhuman climbing skills. They are warm and friendly, adding a touch of exoticism to the hike. Most hikers almost always have a Sherpa guide or assistant when exploring the area.
Everest Base Camp is of course the most important highlight of the entire Trekking. This is the ultimate destination of the trek itself. It was a satisfying feeling after trekking for more than a week and finally arriving at the base camp. Its full of pride and fulfillment for hikers. When one is standing in the shadow of the worlds highest Himalaya peak, the feeling of fascination and inspiration becomes too big, surrounded by snow and open sky, and surrounded by clear sky. Huge mountains and vast mountains are sure to inspire anyone.
