Climbing Mountain Everest, the highest mountain in the world, is a lifelong dream for many adventure travelers. Beginning with the early British expeditions in the 1920s, Everest has held a magical allure with its imposing snow caps and stunning panoramic views.
The trek to the base of the highest mountain in the world allows you to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Tibetan Plateau, and walk to a very high altitude on good snow-free trails providing the best views of Everest from either the Tibet or Nepal side.
Everest National Park is situated among rolling, vast green (in May-June) short-grass and boulder strewn valleys leading up to the base of the mountain. The environment is beautiful and stark, inhabited with wild birds and animals. Plants in the park range from spruce, pine, a wide variety of evergreen trees, as well as cold belt grasslands. Many precious animals inhabit Tibet, such as antelope, deer, fox, gazelles, yaks, and many species of birds.
Everest exerts a pull like no other mountain and trekking to the base of Everest through the majesty of the high Himalaya delivers physical and mental reward like no other trek on Earth. The mountain scenery is simply spectacular and the physical challenge a reward in itself.
