Everest Base Camp is underneath the world's tallest mountain: Mt. Everest. Situated at 5,380m, Nepal shares the south side of Everest Base Camp, there are unsophisticated campsites on the Base Camp for climbers and trekkers. Hundreds of prayer flags directed towards the glorious mountain and the smell of local butter tea from the locals will make this place more charming. Thus, hundreds of trekkers attempt to reach the Base Camp and few of them even provoke to climb the tallest mountain in the world. Mt. Everest has been a commercial area to trek, especially because of the help from the Sherpa and trek companies providing trek guides, porters, and every possible basic facility.
