Trekking in the Everest region is one of the most destined and desired treks in the world; after all, it is all about stepping foot at the base of the world’s highest peak, the Mt. Everest. Since the summit of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary, being at the Everest has been everybody’s desire. If this is your first time trekking experience in the Everest region, you might need some tips for trekking to Everest base camp. Let us tell you that trekking to the Everest base camp doesn’t involve any kind of technical climbing, you shall only be making through dense forest, trekking over rugged landscape of hilly and Himalayan region of Nepal, crossing several streams, rivers, glaciers, and traditional villages.
  • Choose the best time
Himalayas trekking favors March to May and September to November as the best months of the year; with October as the busiest month of all. Though trekking in other times might not be impossible, but keep in mind that your trekking might be full with miseries and challenges, sometimes even risking your life. Also, October might not be the best month for you to trek if you hate trekking in a busy trail.
  • Choose right trekking agency
You are suggest to choose a local trekking agency in Nepal rather than an international trekking agency. If you go via an international trekking agency, you might end up paying a huge sum of money. Though Everest base camp solo trek for Nepal is possible, but it might not be a good news if you happen to be injured or sick during your trek and there’s nobody to take your care. Also, solo trekking means being most of the time in dark regarding the mysterious history of the village you just passed by or the mountain you are looking at.

  • Pack lightly
Do not over pack. If you happen to cross the threshold of your gear, you shall be paying extra money to the porter. Do not bring unnecessary items with you. You aren’t going to a luxurious journey of life, rather, beating the wilderness, breathing the mountain air in, you are exploring a new land. Don’t let heavy weight become your obstacle.
  • Be physically and mentally prepared
Trekking to Everest base camp often involves walking on high altitude areas and spending your night there. The areas are so remote that everything you eat during your trek are carried by donkeys. Thus, don’t expect high facilities here. You shall find teahouses with required basic facilities with squat shared toilet. The higher you go, the limited the varieties of food and facilities you get. If this is your first time trekking experience, it is better to do some cardiovascular exercises few weeks before the trek.
