Visiting Mt. Everest region is a dream of many adventure lovers in the world. The reasons of visiting the region may differ from person to person. Some may visit for their personal goal, while others for experiencing culture and adventure. The trek is prepared for those who have limited time and can not trek to the higher altitude.
