The southern base camp of Mount Everest in Nepal is located at an altitude of 5,380m (17,600ft). However, there is no guest houses and tea houses we will visit Everest base camp as a day trip to explore around it. If you want to stay in a base camp, then you need to be prepared by the tent, those who will be heading for Everest summit they stay at base camp on a tent.
2. Explore Sherpa Culture
