Description

"The Everest Base Camp trek. . .is one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas and is visited by thousands of trekkers each year,” according to Wikipedia. By some estimates, 40,000 people attempted the base camp trek in 2015. While this means that you’ll undoubtedly have to share the trail with many other people, this trek is popular for a good reason: it’s located in one of the most epic landscapes in the world!

The segments included here are roughly long enough to complete one per day, although fit hikers could potentially travel faster. You can also choose from numerous detours and side hikes in this region—one of the best and most convenient side hikes is included here as well. However you choose to split up the Everest Base Camp Trek, it will undoubtedly be the experience of a lifetime!
