Nepal is the most famous trekking destination in the world and its popularity is well deserved. 

Not any regions in the world are capable of offering array of trips that Nepal have. Many renowned trails such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Manaslu Circuit, Tsum Valley, Poon Hill, Upper Mustang, Dhaulagiri, Kanchenjunga, lie clustered in the Himalayas of Nepal. 

Among them, the Everest Base Camp Trek is the most popular trekking trail in Nepal. The trek provides a lifetime opportunity to visit the high majestic mountains such as Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyo. However, one thing you should know before deciding to take this trip is that you should be in great shape to complete the trek. You should have cardio trainings at least a few times per week or maybe even try to win your first half marathon medals. You don’t want to take a trip to Nepal and realize that you’re not fit to complete the trek on the spot.

What is Everest Base Camp?

Everest Base Camp (5364 m) is the base of the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest. It is where climbers set up their camps and spend a night before they start their journey to the summit.
