Mount Everest Base Camp (EBC) Location and its history
There are two Everest Base Camps that are the endpoints of tours: the North Base Camp and the South Base Camp. The southern base camp lies in Nepal, which is the endpoint of the most famous trek. The northern camp lies in China and can be assessed via a roadway. But reaching the Nepalese side requires you to trek for days. It is also more popular.
Everest Base Camp was born when the mountaineers were looking for a place to store supplies at the base of the mountain. Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay used the South Everest Base Camp to keep their gear. The point was chosen as it was easily accessible to non-mountaineers. Now, the same point is the endpoint of the Everest Base Camp Trek.
