So, we, Nepal Gateway Trekking have listed top 5 top reasons for going to Everest Base Camp Trekking as follows;

1. The only one chance to experience a fly into one of the most dangerous airports (Lukla Airport) with shortest runway in the world. But this is really a safe flight (30 minutes from Kathmandu) by twin otter or downier plane. There are some crashed in past but this is not a reason not flying there because 40-50 flights are operated in a day in season time and all are safely landed.

2. Everest base camp trekking provides not only the opportunity to reach base camp, it is an opportunity to meet and shake a hand with great climbers and summiteers of the highest peak in the world, Mt Everest (8848m), explore Khumbu Glacier and Ice-Fall with high mountain surrounding, Mount Everest itself.

3. Every step to observe the most amazing scenery (rivers, nice settle villages, waterfalls, pine oak and rhododendron forest, alpine meadow and endanger species of flora and fauna you've ever imagined in your life.

4. The opportunity to visit 500 years old Buddhist monasteries at Pangboche, Tengboche (a big and active monastery in Khumbu), Namche and also in Khumjung (a nice and big settlement village) with skull of Yeti and of course antique culture and unique traditions deserved by ethnic group, Sherpe (A mountaineering people).

5. Meeting local porters everyday in trekking who defy normal human abilities because they carry more than one hundred kilos of goods on basket, interesting to see they carrying timber on their back etc.
