Everest Base Camp
Tick this bucket list trip off with Absolute Adventure. When the trails of Nepal were opened, Everest Base Camp became the premier goal for many adventure trekkers. The Everest Base Camp Trek takes one to the foothills of the mightiest mountain in the world. En route, traverse through rhododendron and pine forests, rivers, Sherpa villages and Buddhist Monasteries from temperate to snow line regions. The Everest Base Camp trek involves a tremendous amount of vertical change. All the rivers in this part of Nepal flow south form Himalayan glaciers, but the trek route proceeds east. Therefore the path climbs to the ridge that separates two rivers, descended to the river itself, and then ascends the next ridge. Even though the trek begins at an elevation of 1860m, on the sixth day it crosses the DudhKosi at only 1500m – after considerable uphill climbing, it will come to almost 5,500m of elevation to Everest base camp. The views of the Himalayas are stunning as this route threads through the Khumbu region from the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar. The trekkers get a close view of the world's greatest mountains such as Mt.Everest (8,848m) and other mountains like Lhotse, Nuptse, Thamserku, and Tabuche.
