I was standing at the base camp at the top of the world. Words can't even begin to describe the feeling, though probably 'accomplishment' was high on the list. After this trek to EBC, only summiting will probably top this.
How much does the trek cost?
Your international flights. Your Follow Alice package fee.
By having just two primary expenses – flights and the package fee – you can put together a pretty accurate budget for the Everest Base Camp trek.
