About Everest Base Camp Trek:

Everest Base Camp (EBC) is situated at an altitude of 5,380 m (17,600 ft) on the south side of the Mount Everest (Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma in Tibetan) in Sagarmatha National Park of Nepal.

Everest. The first Sagarmatha Himalaya submitter Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa used this path in 1953. Afterwards, trekking to Everest Base Camp was popularly known among mountain lovers.
