    Everest Base Camp Trekking Difficulty
    Everest Base Camp Trekking is one of the classic trekking experiences in Nepal. It is the most popular trekking destination for anyone who chooses to visit Nepal. It is evergreen and iconic journey. Everest Base Camp Trekking is a moderate one in terms of difficulty. Being the tallest mountain of the world, obviously it involves some potential difficulties like high altitude, steep and snowy trails etc. It is a doable trek if you are physically fit and mentally prepared. The little hard section is between Tengboche to the actual Everest Base Camp. From Tengboche you have to bear a long uphill climb. Therefore, it is relatively difficult. The actual Everest Base Camp is difficult just because of altitude. The hike towards Kala Patthar is also a technical part of this adventure. If you have undertaken some short trekking and hiking earlier, there won’t be any problem for you.

    Everest Base Camp Trekking Season
    Although spring and autumn are regarded as the best season for Trekking and Hiking in Nepal, it can be done all the year around. Basically, Nepal experiences four seasons and each season has its own distinct feature. Here, we are going to tell you in short about it. Let’s have a look.

    Autumn Season (September- November): This is the best time to trek in Nepal. The weather will be lovely during this season. Moderate temperatures, clear sky with outstanding views will attribute to make your trek a lifetime memory.

    Spring Season (March- May): This is another best time to visit Nepal. The temperature will still be moderate. It will be warm even at the high altitude. The trekking trails will be decorated with different varieties of wild flowers like Rhododendrons. This season also affords appealing mountain views.

    Winter Season (December- February): Though winter is counted as off season for trekking in Nepal, it is an ideal option for the trekkers who don’t like to travel in crowded trails. There will be snowfall at higher elevations and it gets colder during night. Days are still warmer with plenty of sun shines and clear blue skies. Winter can be the best time to trek towards Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Dhaulagiri Trek, and Annapurna Sanctuary Trek etc.

    Summer Season (June- August): Nepal experiences summer rainfall. Therefore, the trekking will be difficult during summer. The trails will be wet, muddy, and slippery. There will be occasional flood and landslides in some places. However, rain shadow zone like Manang and Mustang may offer perfect travelling experience even in winter.

    Everest Base Camp Trekking Preparations
    We suggest trekkers to maintain physical fitness prior to a couple of weeks. Technical Mountaineering skills are not required for the Everest Base Camp Trek, but previous trekking experience would be highly appreciated. We suggest you to go for jogging, hiking, cycling, gym, etc. to make your body fit. Similarly, have plenty of hygienic foods including protein, carbohydrates and minerals. More ever, you need to be mentally ready for this adventurous journey. Here is the list of how to prepare for this trek which is as follows:

    •  Go for a run or hike to hills where you have to do ascents and descents.
    •  Once a week, do a long walk.
    •  Swim and cycle.
    •  You can also go up and down the stairs of a tall building.
    •  Eat healthy food.
    •  Keep on doing yoga. If you can, do more yoga related to breathing

    Everest Base Camp Trekking Permits
    Everest Base Camp Trekking requires a number of permits. First one is Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit. This permit cost NPR 2000 and it can be obtained only when you reach Khumbu. In addition to this you need Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit. This permit cost NPR 3000 per person. It can either be obtained at Kathmandu from Tourism Board or directly in Monjo at Park Entrance. The most convenient way of obtaining it is from Monjo.

    Everest Base Camp Trekking Gears
    Sleeping Bag, Headlamp and spare batteries, Day Pack, Down-Jacket, Duffel or rucksack bag, Large plastic bags, Water bottles, Ear Plug, Trekking Poles, Trekking Boots, Gloves, Hats etc. are some of the most common Trekking and Hiking Instruments. We recommend you to choose all types of clothing and attires. For the same, you can go with Trekking Gears Checklists

    Altitude Sickness
    Altitude Sickness also known as mountain sickness is the condition in which our body could not adjust to the environment due to the less barometric pressure. When we move to the high altitude the barometric pressure will be less and our body couldn’t adjust to that air pressure due to which we feel nausea, dizziness, fatigue, vomiting, headache, loss of appetite, shortness of sleep etc. which is called Altitude sickness. In terms of its complexities, altitude sickness is grouped into three categories:

    •  Acute Mountain Sickness: It is very common at high altitude and can cause vomiting, dizziness, nausea etc. overall, it is the mildest form of altitude sickness.
    •  High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): It is a very dangerous and life threatening conditions because fluid is built up in the lungs.
    •  High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): It is the most severe stage of Altitude Sickness because fluid is built up in the brain. It is life threatening one. The victim will be unable to walk, breathe and ultimately in Coma.

      Altitude Sickness can suffer anyone who attempt high altitude. If you feel any symptoms associated with Altitude Sickness along with headache, you need to change your elevation. It means climb down to the lower elevations. If the symptoms are severe, you need medical attention. We can prevent Altitude Sickness also. For the same, do not climb hurriedly, acclimatize properly, drink plenty of fresh water, do not drink or smoke, eat hygienic.

      First Aid
      Trekking in Nepal is full of difficulties and you never know serious injuries can also take place. A First Aid Kit is very essential to help before professional medical help is available.
