The Khumbu region has grabbed a lot of international attention to itself with its number of trekking celebrations and accomplishment in the region. Among most of the popular areas for trekking in the Everest Region, Everest Base Camp Trek is the most well-known trek worldwide. Many of us have heard about the usual Everest Base Camp Trek, but what makes Classic Base Camp different from that is the ancient essence it holds with its trail that begins from Phaplu. Trek from Phaplu to Everest base camp is a classic and original route for trekkers to trek in. Long time ago, the trek began and concluded from Phaplu to Kathmandu and vice-versa. Since the establishment of Lukla Airport, most of the tourists take the flight to, or from Lukla, and cut their journey short. The trekkers who want to take the shorter climb to the Everest Base Camp can take up the 10 days trek package to EBC as well. Classic Base Camp follow the ancient route and offers us a splendid experience of farm villages across the scattered valley and subsequently towards the Himalayas and monasteries along the way.
