Although the journey to Everest Base Camp is indeed a physically demanding endeavor that anyone should be proud to have accomplished, the real rewards from this trek come from the feelings that come from the land, the people, and the spirit of Nepal and the Himalayas. The incredible alpine scenery, the kindness and generosity embedded in Buddhist culture, and the gorgeous architecture of the monasteries and villages are enthralling and leave a deep, lasting impact on visitors for years to come.

“Hiking in the Khumbu Valley is a physical and spiritual journey to the highest mountains on Earth–made even more special by the warmth of the local Sherpa people.” Erik Perez, MT Sobek Guide
