Local Sherpa people are known for their bravery and devotion to their duty, either work as trekking or mountaineering guide. In addition to this, they have been involved in trade from the generations and running lodges and accommodation for visitors around here. And the EBC trek aims to present the hidden Sherpa culture to the world’s guest and focus to explore the high Himalayan ranges.
Well, the joyful trek might not be turned into the reality owing to the fact that this is the high altitude adventurous trek.

Autumn and spring are the best recommended seasons for this trek and trekkers are requested to bring warm clothes as the temperature is extremely low in the mountains.
