Trekking Grade:

The Everest base camp trip is a fairly challenging journey. It is moderately long trekking which goes into the country's most elevated mountain. So travelers require more energy and the trip is actually tiring which includes 5-8 hrs. (approx.) of walking per day on the rocky edges. It doesn't require previous experience, but you must be physically healthy and better if you do regular exercise. If you love walking at high altitude, then this trip is for you.
