This trek is an amazing chance to explore gorgeous destinations that are beyond one’s imagination.

Although the locals call it the “Valley of Death” due to the lives the altitude sickness has taken, it is one of the most favored Everest Base Camp trail and is believed to be the paradise on earth. The trail of this trekking route is lined up with rhododendron and birch forests with exotic wild animals. You will come across numerous suspension bridges that add thrill to the trip.
