Nepal side base camp is famous for Everest Base Camp or South Base Camp while Tibet side is called North Base Camp. It is either of two base camp on opposite side of Mount Everest. South Base Camp is in Nepal at an altitude of 5,364 metres (17,598 ft) (28°0′26″N 86°51′34″E), and North Base Camp is in Tibet at 5,150 metres (16,900 ft)(28°8′29″N 86°51′5″E).
South side of the Everest Basecamp is mostly visited by trekkers to EBC and climbers camps for the Everest climbing preparation. The view of Mt Everest is not so good from the base camp, so we climb the Kalapathar hill for the close-up views of Himalayas.
