Description

For More Info on the Trek visit: http://bit.ly/19zwxhr Mt Everest Base Camp Details: http://bit.ly/19zjBhB Autumn brings with it another busy season, this time in Nepal which is home of the mighty and ultimately humbling Mount Everest- the highest mountain on Earth, with a peak at 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level. There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the south-east in Nepal (known as the standard route) and the other from the north in Tibet. While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents other dangers that you must be aware of such as altitude sickness, weather, hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall. It's among the most popular trekking areas in Nepal and the best time to visit is now. By mid-October through to December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights and clear views.
