The Himalayan mountain range is one of the most unusual environments regularly braved by adventurers and tourists. This inhospitable area is home to dozens of peaks exceeding 7200m (or almost 24000 ft) spaced across five countries: India, China, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bhutan.
But what captivates the imagination of so many is Mount Everest itself. With a height of 8848m (or over 29000 ft), it is the highest mountain peak on the entire planet. To try to climb it, you must first get to the base of the mountain, meaning that you need to stop at either of the Everest base camps before you proceed further. Getting to these two campsites may be straightforward for experienced trekkers, but quite a challenge for everyone else.
