Mount Everest, the highest point on earth at 8848 meters, was scaled for the first time by Sir Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norbu Sherpa of Nepal,  in 1952. At the base, on its southern side lies the southern Everest Base Camp. The southern Everest Base Camp, popularly known as EBC, is situated in the Himalayas of Nepal at a height of 5300 meters.

There are no rocky ridges to traverse, no scrambling or technical climbing but just a good well-graded path accessible to all keen hikers and trekkers. The key to Everest Base Camp trekking is consequently being careful while pacing and taking plenty of time to accommodate.

CNN International recommended Everest Base Camp trekking in Nepal as one of the best top ten adventure hiking trips in the world for 2011.

The Everest Base Camp hiking was also ranked as one of the World’s top 10 best journeys in 2003.
