Everest Base Camp Trekking Difficulty

Everest Base Camp Trek is an adventurous journey, so the trek is defined as a challenging adventure in the Khumbu region. EBC Trekking route consists of numerous uphill and downhill climbs with stone staircases, which can be tiresome. Some of the sections are steeply up and down along with the walk through the rocky moraines and glacial route. So, during the trek, we recommend at least a couple of breaks that will help to face the challenge and complete your mission to reach Everest Base Camp (5364 meters) and Kalapathar (5555 meters). However, in winter, the trail becomes extra challenging after the snowfall to scramble through the snowy route.


Fitness for Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek requires good physical fitness. So, it’s better if you practice outdoor walk and cycling before heading for the trek to Everest Base Camp. You don’t need to take any specific lessons for physical fitness or any training, but making yourself physically fit in your own way is important. Besides, there are many examples every year that even the children and senior citizens have successfully completed the trek. Everest Base Camp and Gorakshep are the higher points that ultimately break the excursion above 5000 meters altitude above sea level.


Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) in Everest Base Camp Trekking

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) generally occurs for the trekkers while heading above 2500 meters. It is a common thing that slowly exhibits symptoms like dizzying and dehydration or even vomiting. The highest altitude of Everest Base Camp Trek is 5545 meters (Kalapathar), which is a thin air region of the Himalayas and high altitude sickness cannot be underestimated. So, walking in the thin air region is quite adventurous. For this region, we manage a couple of days’ break during the trek so that you will get enough time for acclimatization. If you feel unexpectedly tiredness, insomnia, and other symptoms, you need to follow some procedures like:


Essential Information

Getting Everest Base Camp 

Lukla is the gateway to the Everest base camp trek. However, if you prefer a longer and historical route, then it is also accessible from Jiri. Kathmandu to Lukla flights take about 40 minutes. Sometimes, you may need to fly from Manthali airport of Ramechhap, which is another 4-5 hours’ drive from Kathmandu.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance is an essential part while heading off for trekking. As Everest base camp trekking is an adventurous journey, the risk cannot be underestimated. Namche Bazaar is located at 3440 meters and above this town, altitude mountain sickness can happen. The ultimate destination is Kalapathar at 5545 meters, which is an isolated part, where no hospitals and doctors are found. In case of any emergencies appear, you may need helicopter evacuation and you don’t need to worry if you have travel insurance.

Note: please, be updated with the COVID-19 risk coverage insurance, which is required after the global pandemic seen in Nepal. Nepal government has made a rule that any foreign trekker should have at least 5000 USD Covid insurance.


Best Season for Everest Base Camp Trekking

Spring

The Spring season is known as the best season for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The trek begins in March and it runs well through April till May. We get warm weather and clear skies during this season so the Himalayan lovers can take abundant pictures.

Autumn

Autumn is another best season for trekking in Everest. September, October and November often welcome trekkers with amazing weather, clear views, warm days and beautiful sceneries. Autumn is also the festival time in Nepal, so the trekkers can enjoy the Nepali festival with Nepali teams in a local way.

December and January

The days remain cool with amazing sunshine. But the morning, evening and nights go crazy. If you really love to trek in less trafficked time, December and January are the best time to go. To be honest, this is the time when you get the most dramatic views of the Himalayas. Just the thing is it remains snowy.

Extra personal expenses on Everest Base Camp Trekking

Hiking to Everest base camp itself is a 12-day excursion in the Himalayas. Certainly, we provide three meals and accommodation during the trek. But, you might need to spend on some topics like extra drinks, energy bars, and other topics. Namche Bazaar is a commercial hub in the Khumbu region, where you will find various items of souvenirs from the Himalayas, including herbs, paintings, hats, and other items. If you want to buy then you will have a personal expense. Thus, we recommend you bring cash by yourself, which will be used in necessary conditions. Even in the case of flight delay and cancellation, you might need to stay one more night in Lukla, and in that case, you need to cover the expenses.


Solo vs Group Trek in Everest Base Camp 

Do we usually get this query about which one is better- single or with a group? It cannot be answered in judgmental language in fact. Some people find it amazing with the group, sharing ideas, having fun, enjoying, chatting and laughing about different topics. They love group traveling. This created a mashed-up concept of traveling with multiple languages and cultures.

Solo trekking is good for those who do not want to travel with strangers and love to do a peaceful journey in the Himalayas. Some solo female trekkers doubts about the safety matter, which is not a matter to worry about as we have operated numerous trekking for the solo female trekkers. If you love to walk in your own way with peace of mind, with music and enjoy nature in your own way, then you book for solo trekking.

With great energy to complete the adventurous trekking in the Khumbu region, we begin to walk from Manjo after having breakfast. We also complete our formality by showing our permits. Then we continue to hike further via Bengkar and Phakding. Enjoying the potatoes fields, we reach Cheplung and Lukla. This is where we celebrate the final day of trekking with the team. Also, we say goodbye to the rest of the staff (in a group trek). but the guide will be with you till in Kathmandu. Overnight at the Hotel.

Note: it is necessary to reconfirm the flight tickets in Lukla, the guide will take care of it, you may have relaxed in the Hotel.
