The Himalaya is a mountain range in Asia separating the plains of the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau. The Himalayan range is home to the planet’s highest peaks, including the highest, Mount Everest. The Himalayas include over a hundred mountains exceeding 7,200 metres (23,600 ft) in elevation. By contrast, the highest peak outside Asia – Aconcagua, in the Andes – is 6,961 metres (22,838 ft) tall.
The Himalayas are spread across five countries: Bhutan, India, Nepal, People’s Republic of China, and Pakistan, with the first three countries having sovereignty over most of the range.The Himalayan range is bordered on the northwest by the Karakoram and Hindu Kush ranges, on the north by the Tibetan Plateau, and on the south by the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Some of the world’s major rivers, the Indus, the Ganges, and the Tsangpo-Brahmaputra
Mount Everest, also known in Nepal as Sagarmāthā is Earth’s highest mountain. Its peak is 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level. Mount Everest is located in the Mahalangur mountain range in Nepal. The international border between China (Tibet Autonomous Region) and Nepal runs across Everest’s precise summit point. Its massif includes neighbouring peaks Lhotse, 8,516 m (27,940 ft); Nuptse, 7,855 m (25,771 ft) and Changtse, 7,580 m (24,870 ft).
Mount Everest attracts many climbers, some of them highly experienced mountaineers. There are two main climbing routes: one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the standard route) and the other from the north in Tibet, China. While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, wind as well as significant objective hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall. As of 2016, there are well over 200 corpses still on the mountain, with some of them even serving as landmarks.
Everest Base Camp Trek
Everest The highest peak, the ultimate trek is not for the faint of heart. The trek to Everest Base Camp(EBC), the most iconic base camp at the foot of the tallest mountain in the world was made famous by Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, when they first reached its rocky base, and its siren call has been heard by trekkers and climbers ever since. Everest’s famous summit soars so high in the Himalayan sky that trekking to its base is still a hearty adventure and not for weekend walkers

You’ll likely be sharing the trails with fellow hikers: In the past years over 40,000 people have been doing the trek to Everest base camp annually. And although the region has become an achievable goal for more people, it still demands a good level of fitness and preparation.
Between 14 days, you’ll weave through some of the world’s most spectacular mountain scenery, discovering Nepalese tea-houses, learning about the traditions and cultures of the Sherpa, following the river Dudh Khosi, passing boulders carved with Tibetan Buddhist prayer inscriptions, and after five days will enter Sagarmatha (or, Everest) National Park and get a first glimpse of the world’s highest point.
