About the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek
The Everest Base Camp Trek (other known as EBC) is the most popular thru hike in the Himalayas, Nepal. It takes you roughly 130 km (could be longer or shorter depending on where you start the hike) through various mountain villages, mountain passes, crystal-clear river crossings, and rugged valleys to reach the Everest Base Camp. Although it’s still a somewhat difficult trek, it’s considered to be fairly easily doable with a bit of training, and it lets you experience the high elevation of the Himalayas without any alpinism experience. If you want to hike something less popular, then other trails in the Himalayas include the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, the Langtang Trek, and the Annapurna Circuit.

Very pleased with the quality and very quick delivery
If I could leave 10 stars ⭐️ I would! I ordered the Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit Map for Christmas gifts for family members who have been there/done that. I alway love coming to Etsy for unique gifts, so when I saw these from Trail Goals I was super happy! However, Canada Post messed up and I didn’t receive anything, when Trail Goals told me it was delivered. I contacted Oscar and he rushed out another order at no extra cost to me! Even though it wasn’t his fault. Maps were received with a day to spare (along with the first set that Canada Post magically located). Gifts were framed and given, recipients were stoked, 10 stars were awarded! Thanks Oscar!🤩
The poster I ordered is good quality, very nice looking and will be an excellent addition to my office after I get it framed. The owner/seller communicated clearly throughout the order process, their prices are reasonable, and service excellent — I highly recommend this shop!
