'Because it's there'. George Mallory replied on why he wanted to climb Mount Everest.
There were several attempts made in the history to achieve a summit over the Mt. Everest. But the first successful expedition became possible only on 29 of May, 1953. Notably, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa led the expedition team. Because of this, Everest Base Camp route has become one of the most explored trekking trails in the Himalayas. Many expedition teams are following the Everest Base Camp trail for several other peaks in the Everest region. Since then Everest Base Camp trekking is accomplished by thousands of trekkers every year.
We have designed Everest Base Camp trek with Island Peak and three high passes namely Renjo la (5,340m), Chola (5,330m), Kongma la (5,535m) and finally summit Island Peak (6,160m).
