Could be a idiotic question for some, but genuine, why do people go to Everest Base Camp? Recently I have seen friends, office colleagues, etc. line up to trek/climb to the Mount Everest Base Camp (or EBC as some call it). Also, there are quite a few agencies that have been now organizing treks to EBC.
One obvious reason is that it is a base for expeditions to Mount Everest, where climbers stop before and after their actual expeditions and also their support teams wait at the EBC.
With climbing being one of the fastest growing recreational sports in India, millions of amateur trekking and climbing enthusiasts are exploring the adrenaline rush of this mentally and physically stimulating sport. Thousand's of certified Mountaineers are graduating from the 4 premium National Mountaineering Institutes in India annually and are exploring the largest and youngest mountain range in the world, standing sentinel across the North of our country.
