Have you ever thought of the highest point or place on the earth?
Yes, it is of course Mount Everest of Nepal. It is the highest peak in the world with an altitude of 8,848 meters. Mount Everest trekking starts at Lukla, reached by a 35-minute flight. The hiking goes along the Dudh Koshi Valley leading into the popular Sherpa hometown- Namche Bazaar and finally the Everest Base Camp. Namche Bazaar serves as a central hub of the area for food, sundries, communications and climbing gears. Many trekkers spend a full day in Namche Bazaar for acclimatization. The trail passes then through the famous Tengboche Monastery, Lobuche and finally Gorakshep (5,140m/16,864ft). Gorakshep is the highest point of accommodation available to the Everest Base Camp visitors. Trekkers also ascend to Kalapatthar (5,545m/18,192ft) for the magnificent views of the Himalayan giants.
