Everest Base Camp among 10 best treks in the world

KATHMANDU: Everest Base Camp (EBC) has been listed in the 10 best treks in the world by Lonley Planet, a travel guide book publisher.

As per the Lonley Planet, EBC is the fourth classic treks amongst the best on the planet; requiring sturdy pair of lungs, fit legs and a good amount of preparation. But the reward is an experience that lasts a lifetime.

“Reaching a height of 5,545m (18,193ft) at Kala Pattar, this 2-3 week trek is extremely popular, thanks to its spectacular scenery but also romanticism; successful trekkers are able to proudly say they’ve stood at the base of the world’s highest mountain,” as per Lonley Planet.

Furthermore, the Lonley Planet states that the trail threads between small, characterful mountain villages en route to the famous campground and is trafficked by Sherpa people of the Solu Khumbu.

The heights reached during this trek are literally dizzying until you acclimatise to the altitude, and the continuous cutting across valleys certainly has its ups and downs. Be warned: prime trekking season brings serious crowds.
