The rules of thumb in these Himalayan expeditions are staying together, being light and being accommodating. Chocolate may be considered a luxury item there as it costs a bomb. But since they are instant energy bundles you need to stack your own pack of chocolates.
Journey and excitement of EBC trek start from Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu as you board the flight to Lukla. Your trek starts after that and on your way to base camp you can discover Nepalese tea houses, secret monasteries, small villages and their culture and tradition.
