Virgin forests are home to a variety of wildlife including deer, Languor monkeys, and pheasants and in the spring they become a riot of color when the rhododendrons bloom. Accommodation along the way includes tea houses and home-stays which will give you a real insight into how the six ethnic groups of this area live (Tamang, Newar, Sherpa, Thami, Yolma, and Majhis). Host families are trained to prepare meals hygienically and always are incredibly welcoming, treating you as one of their family. The homes reflect the traditional and simple atmosphere of the people. The area has many temples, sacred caves, and shrines reflecting the two main religions (Hinduism and Buddhism). Tourists can also enjoy the traditional folk dances and music presented by the local men and women in their colorful traditional dresses. The focus for the guests is on experiencing and learning from an authentic and enriched culture.

There are so many different trekking and travel company who organize all trekking and touring activities in Nepal and they have their own strategy and price but the fact of the trek is the same so if you are in Nepal to make Everest base camp trekking and if you are alone it cost comparatively more than groups, in general for solo trekkers Kathmandu to Kathmandu 12 days Everest base camp trek cost 1299 USD and if you are two people going there cost 1199 USD.
