This route is most people's choice. It starts from Lukla, goes straight to the Everest Base Camp along a valley, and then returns the same way. During the whole trekking journey, you will have a full view of snowy mountains and glaciers, and look up to 4 Himalaya peaks above 8000 meters up close. The peaks are Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu, which ranked first, fourth, fifth, and sixth in the world respectively. The main attractions are the Gorek Shep(5164 meters), the Everest Base Camp (EBC)(5364 meters) and Kala Patthar (5550 meters) observation deck. This route is also a classic tea house trekking route. There will be villages or rest stations every 1 or 2 hours along the way, so you don’t need to bring your own food and camping facilities, and the difficulty is greatly reduced.
