Everest Base Camp trekking is a lifetime dream for many travelers. To stand at the foot of the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest, and see high up is many people’s dream. Trekking to Everest Base Camp is the perfect opportunity to explore the lifestyle of the Himalayan people, their religion, customs, and traditional way of life. Comparatively, Everest Base Camp trekking is more challenging than the Annapurna Circuit due to its difficulty with altitude. On day 2 of the Everest Base Camp trek, you reach 3,420m in Namche Bazaar. On the Annapurna Circuit, you do not gain this much altitude until Day 6. Each day, the trail involves a substantial amount of scrambling up and down on the Everest Base Camp trek, whereas, the Annapurna Circuit trekking has far more gentle, flat stretches that don’t leave you heaving for breath. On the Everest Base Camp trek, you have to come down following the exact route that you climbed up before.
