      Trek to Everest base camp

      Over the period of two weeks, we had a wonderful time. The journey was challenging enough yet fun. We had a great time on our trek to Everest base camp thanks to Binod and his team's excellent arrangements. The finest thing to see were mountains, emerald trees, rivers, streams, and many more. Without a doubt, I would advise NTA to any other tourists eager to have a close-up look at Mount Everest. The most memorable EBC trek with NTA was this one.
