Heavenly Himalayas and Everest base camp Trek
Trip Date: 04/10/2016

That was my dream to be there once in my life. Everest base camp trek was my dream. But.. last month I was there. it was an unforgettable experience and beautiful achievement of my life. Amazing views of a mountain just in front of my eyes, beautiful views of Khumbu icefall, glacier and glacial lake. Wow ! Heaven on earth.
While I reached in Kalapatthar 5,555 m, I thought I was in the top of the world. I found myself surrounding the beautiful Himalayas such as Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and so on. By the stunning views of the Himalayas and Himalayan range, I felt nervous and neither I am able to speak nor express my happiness.
Everest base camp trek is adventurous. there is a lot of difficulties. it is also one of the dangerous trekking in the world. I want to recommend all of you to choose good trekking partner. Your smart choice will make your travel successful. I found #Himalayan Recreation is a good one and that was my perfect choice.
I can't forget one kind, helpful and smart person in my lifetime. He is Bharat, my friend, my guide. He made my trekking more beautiful than my expectation.

Thank you so much, Bharat and Team Himalayan recreation.
