Trekking to EBC was a grand experience. Seeing Everest and its base camp and ten neighboring mountains are amazing! And I also had a brilliant experience on this trip. very fun, had lots of experience, and full of interesting knowledge about different villages and mountains along the way. The trek was amazing. Chola Pass 5420m is strenuous but really rewarding. The views were amazing. There were some hard times, but it’s all worth it as the views are spectacular every day.
