PEAK FREAKS MOUNT EVEREST TRAIL PHOTOS  

Mt. Everest Base Camp trail  is suitable for any walker looking for something with cultural interaction and energetic. It does not require that you have previous trekking or mountaineering experience. Although the terrain is not difficult, some long day hiking experience is useful. And it does not require any technical experience; only that you be in good physical condition with the ability to hike for 4 to 6 hours over hilly terrain with light day pack. Conditioning would be living a normal active lifestyle at least 6 months prior to trekking. That could be walking, hiking, biking or swimming at least 3 days a week. 

Accommodations along the trail are being upgraded to what were once quaint teahouse to now lavish mountain lodges with excellent food. We at Peak Freak's have notice many changes since we started going there in 1991. You can get a shower, a flush toilet and steak with vegetables. A far cry from what used to be a board bed, out house and daily meals which included only Dal Bhat (rice and lentils). 

If you have ever longed to set eyes on the highest summit then this exciting trek in the Everest region gives you the opportunity to fill that dream.
