The Massive Khumbu Glacier & Khumbu Icefall

Everest region is dominated by Sherpa people, each corner is filled with the aroma of Tibetan Sherpa people. Besides local Sherpa people are known for their bravery and devotion to their duty. Either working as trekking or mountaineering guides. In addition to this, they have been involved in the trade for generations and running lodges and accommodations for visitors around here. The EBC trek aims to present the hidden Sherpa culture and explore the high Himalayan ranges.

Autumn and spring are the best recommended seasons for treks in Nepal. Trekkers are requested to bring warm clothes as the temperature is extremely low in the mountains.
