Everest base camps refer to two base camps on opposite sides of Mount Everest(It could also include any Everest base camp on a given route, but this is less common since the two main routes became standardized) which involves a lot of strenuous hiking through a consistently uphill and downhill terrain.  The two-week Phaplu Everest Base Camp trek starts and finishes at Lukla, an airstrip to the south of the region better known as the ‘Gateway to Everest’. The trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp continues to be one of our most rewarding journeys. You will have a day to explore the exotic city of Kathmandu before flying into the remote mountain town of Lukla (2,840m – 9,350 ft) to begin our trek into the Khumbu region of the Himalayas. The views of the Himalayan Mountains from Lukla on a clear day are breathtaking. South Base Camp is used when climbing via the southeast ridge hile North Base Camp is used when climbing via the northeast ridge. If you are involved in this trek then it would be an adventure that will be remembered for generations to come.
