How hard is it to trek to Everest Base Camp? 2017-09-17 16:40:58

Everest base camp trek is the lifetime adventure; you shouldn’t be worried about the Difficulty of Everest base camp, as you shall be passing through several villages inhabited by different ethnic groups, cross several rivers via the suspension bridges, making through dense forest full of rhododendrons, pines, junipers, etc., leaving the Mani Walls, Chortens, Prayer Wheels, stupas, and monasteries, without any technical climbing and moderate level of strenuousness. As you shall be gaining much altitude within the short span of duration, altitude sickness might make you quite unwell and difficult to trek. Similarly, depending upon the season you are doing this trek, weather can be another challenge you might have to face during your trek. You might not find comfortable accommodation in the higher altitude areas of the Everest region. However, despite these and other challenges that might make your trekking quite difficult or miserable, Everest base camp trek is always a worthy destination to make. For all those trekking enthusiasts who haven’t made any trek, and are doing their trek for the first time, it might be good if they are mentally and physically prepared and ready for this. Keep in mind that you have to hike for 6-7 hours on an average, for some days in a row, in unstable altitude. If your body cannot ensure such long duration of walking for some days in a row, you might be in problem in this unknown land. It is better to do some exercise few weeks before your trek to the Everest base camp. This brings your body in proper shape and condition and helps you manage the long duration of walking. Similarly, if you have some prior experience of trekking, it can be a good advantage to you. Though no matter how many times you have made in the high altitude areas, there’s always the possibility of you suffering from the altitude sickness, such prior experience in the high altitude areas make you familiar with the atmosphere in the highlands, thus, facilitating you to acclimatize. You might also like carrying some medications related to altitude sickness, such as Diamox. It is more beneficial if you talk about your trekking plan with your doctor. Ensure that you do not have any problems related to your bones, or any part of the body, that might directly affect your trekking. March to May and September to November are considered the best time to do any trek in Nepal, including the Everest Base Camp trek. Some lower altitude area is hot, and the higher altitude areas aren’t too cold during March to May. Since it is the pre-monsoon time, expect unprecedented rainfall. Similarly, the lower altitude areas during September to November aren’t too hot, and the upper altitude areas aren’t too chilly. However, the early morning and nights can be quite cold during these months. It is quite difficult to do this trek during December to February. It is really cold, and, even if you do this trek, which isn’t impossible, it can be quite miserable. The weight of your trekking gear might increase, as you would have to carry more gears. It is another question if you can make this trek successfully on your own, carrying all those gears by yourself, in the cold and icy season of the year. Your trek starts after your arrival at Lukla, where you shall meet your guide and porter(s); it is a 35-minute flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. From Lukla, you start trekking towards Phakding.

You shouldn't be extraordinarily strong to complete trekking in Nepal. If you are fit enough to endure long walking, about 6-8 hours per day, you can go for any trek. But, never forget about what you should be doing throughout the trek. Stay warm, take hygienic food and clean water, drink plenty of water, go slow, and let your body acclimatize with the increasing altitude. If you can follow these instructions, you can do any trek. In case of the Everest Base Camp trek, a prior trekking experience or physical adventure in hilly or mountainous region will be added advantage. If you want to go solo, you can do it on your own in most of the adventure trek. But the Government of Nepal has banned solo travelling in Manaslu. Some of the trails of these trek intertwine. Some follow the ancient route of traders through remote trails. Some are carved by the local villagers in help with the initiation of the government. You have to be accompanied by a guide, and must be trekking in a group of at least two. Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is the trek of a lifetime, an everlasting memory of adventure. There are different packages with focus on EBC. You can choose a package including Jiri for travelling in ancient remote route to Everest.

Walk for half a day, and explore the destination as your body acclimatize with the altitude. Visit the old houses, Gompas, viewpoints, monasteries, etc. In Nepal, trekking solo doesn't have any extreme safety risk, neither will you face any difficulty due to language in the mountain region of Nepal, especially the areas that remain crowded with tourists. Most of the villagers here know some English and children are taught English as a compulsory subject in their curriculum. Nepal Trekking Tour is most desired and preferred trekking across the world due to its diverse offering of cultural experiences, climatic change within short coverage of geography, rich wildlife, flowers, herbs, raging glacial streams, beautiful valleys, remote and relatively untouched settlement under the lap of proud mountains, religious and spiritual monuments wherever you reach, and the cheerful and carefree inhabitants with high regard for hospitality.
