Everest Base Camp is not a specific site. Most of its popularity stems from the fact that it is the best place for making Everest Expedition Camping. Different locations have been selected by various expeditions for semi permanent camp during their assault on the mountain. This camp is located at the foot of Khumbu Icefall which is on the Rocky Slopes of the Khumbu Icefall. So it is a great place to view Khumbu glacier.
