Everest Base Camp Trek - G Adventures
Everest is more than a mountain and the journey to its base camp is more than just a trek. Along a route dubbed by some as "the steps to heaven," every bend in the trail provides another photo opportunity, beautiful forests, Sherpa villages, glacial moraines, and foothills.
