Highlights of Classic Everest Trek

Classic Everest Trek is specially for average or beginner level trekkers  who have a little experience of hiking and trekking  hence it is graded as moderate one. But of course you have to go through rocky terrain uphill and downhill which wouldn’t push you to your limit. One thing is for sure you will enjoy its breathtaking beauty as much as of those who goes further high.



This is a perfect trail for those who wish to enjoy the sheer beauty of the Everest avoiding the dangers of altitude sickness. Everest and its region has always enchanted tourist who flock every year in thousands. Its sublime view in all its majesty and its classical beauty which has remain unchanged, ever since humans started exploring the wonders of the natural world. In fact very few people would reject to grasp this ideal opportunity to embark on a journey that would rock you to the core. Since the time immemorial the Sherpa people have dwelled the landscapes of this region defying the harsh upbringing against all odds. Any people in the world today can only imagine how they have evolved over the period of time to be the people we know them today. Their red blood cells(RBC) are high in hemoglobin which gives them that extra edge over others to cope with high altitude. In fact these are the person who represents Nepal as one of the most vibrant ethnic groups of Nepal. Researchers from the western world have done numerous and extensive study on these unique ethnic groups than any other in Nepal. Their simplicity, loyalty, hospitality and helpful nature has astound the people all over the world, which is something that you don’t find in the western society. It is because of the qualities of these people that have inspired many western and European intellectuals to write about them.

Sherpa have been a brand ambassador of Trekking and mountaineering industry in Nepal. They are the ones to establish this industry and bring it on to the mainstream economy of Nepal which almost accounts for more than 50 percent of total foreign revenue of Nepal. Since that first successful historical expedition in 1953 trekking and mountaineering industry have gone on to become multimillion dollar industry and all of the credit goes to the single ethnic group  of Nepal “the Sherpa”
