Adventure lovers from the world, the Nepal EBC trek is the most recommended trekking route. Which consists of five of the world’s highest mountains, Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt, Makalu (8,463m), Mt, Cho Oyo (8153m), Mt. Lhotse (8,501m), and Mt. Lhotse Shar (8,393m).

During the winter months, snowfall may cause difficulty in traveling and the route are quite hard. On the other hand, summers are wet, and the extraordinary peaks are frequently lost in the clouds. Please read the below itinerary route highlights and contact us directly to book the trip of your life.

Everest base camp trek  Solo

EBC Trek solo is a very rewarding experience that ensures an ultimate experience for mountain lovers. If you are planning the solo EBc trek you need to research more and logistic planning before the trip. Everest base camp trek is safe for solo trekkers as the trail are well marked and all the families are there for lodging and food. The main problem of EBC solo trek is altitude sickness so this is why we recommend you to have a local guide or porter with you for your solo trek and choose a local trekking company to arrange your solo trek.

The local service provides can understand your needs, your guide and porter can know your physical fit and your health condition. It is much easier if you have a porter to carry your bag and you have a more easy time in high altitude trekking. The benefit of the solo trek is you can choose your own hotels, can have your own room, and make your own itinerary. You can also reduce the chances of altitude sickness as you can ascent at your own pace and you can change the itinerary as you needed.

The problem with the solo Everest base camp trek is if there is an emergency you have to deal with things on your own. There are not people around you to get help. In case you need the porter assistance at a high altitude the cost is much higher and quite hard to get also. Another disadvantage of the solo trek is finding the accommodation during the peak season is difficult as the agencies and guide book the accommodation for their customer in advance. So some time solo trekkers are sleeping in the dining rooms.

So it is better you can do the solo trek with the help of a local agency with their guide or porter which makes your trip more comfortable and hassle-free.

  Trek preparation

EBC trek needs enough preparation. I repeat Mount Everest trek is not an easy task. It needs lots of preparation, Planning, Effort, and a strong mindset to accomplish. Before heading to your dream destination you must know some of the most important ways for how to prepare for this trek. You need to be well hydrated for your trek. Drink 4-5 liters of water from time to time so that you can balance in the area with a low oxygen environment. Another important tip is having enough acclimatization.

You should have at least have 1 day’s acclimatization in Namche Bazaar (3,500m/ 11,500 feet) for our Mount Everest Trek. Spending more time in such high altitude area would give you an experience of a low oxygen environment. Not only this, but it will also increase the production of red blood cells so that you can carry more oxygen to go to the higher altitudes.

Please have special training that is needed for the EBC trek. Hiking up daily with carrying a weight (6kg/12lbs) on your back is not an easy task. You need to strong to carry those loads and walk throughout your journey. Cardio training, strength training, physical fitness training, cycling, mountaineering are some of the special training you should do to make you physically strong.

Do a small exercise before you come

It is a matter of wonder about the elevation you are gaining daily. Thus you must know about the sort of elevations you are gaining beforehand. This will ease you in building the right training plan. The oxygen level at a higher level of altitude of more than 3000m will decrease. So getting oxygen on your muscles will decrease as you go higher and higher. Hence, while preparing for your Mount Everest trek at the training phase, you should practice carrying the same amount of weight you will be carrying in your trek. The right training plan is what guides all the other preparation methods. You should initiate your training 3 to 6 months before your actual trekking. So that you can have enough time for preparing and make perfect planning.

The right clothing makes your trip comfortable and easy for your Mount Everest trek. You should have clothes according to the season you are traveling. It is mandatory to bring the right sleeping bag, trekking boots, and merino layers. Enough rest and proper sleep make your body healthy during the trek. So that you can gain stamina and energy losses will be less. Bring the right layers, gloves, down jacket, trekking boots, backpack, and other essential items that you need.

Indeed, you cannot see Mount Everest clearly from Everest base camp’s short trek. But if you really want a 360-degree view of the mountains then you can take a helicopter trek to witness the beauty of snow-capped mountains. A helicopter tour to Everest is one of the easy and fast ways to trek to Everest base camp. This is also an optional tour for trekking to Everest base camp. Through this trek, you can also witness many other high mountains of Everest base camp.

Because of many reasons your trek might be delaying.


Hillary museum

As we all know that sir Edmund Hillary was the first person to trek to Mount Everest. So as a memory of Sir Edmund Hillary museum was established. This museum was one of the oldest museums in the Khumbu region. Hillary museum is located at Namche Bazaar.

You will get to know many things about Nepali and Sherpa culture. You can visit the Hillary museum on the acclimatization day at the Namche Bazaar.

Altitude sickness

Altitude Sickness is the main thing we need to think about while making the trip to Everest base camp trek. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can get in the high altitude int the mountain above 3000 meters. The early symptoms are a headache, extreme fatigue, and loss of appetite. Some people become breathless at rest. AMS is the result of fluid accumulating in parts of the body. It does not belong: in the brain or into the lungs or both, when mild symptoms develop, it is a signal that you must stay at that altitude until symptoms have gone away. Never ascend with any signs of AMS! If you get a headache or normal symptoms just take a rest after two days, you will feel well and can continue your trek.

However, we highly recommend you to wear warm clothes, extra down jackets, and friendly sleeping bags. Winter is the off-season for trekking. Therefore You might think of extreme coldness, accommodation, safety. Which is the reason to drive away from trekking to Everest Base Camp in winter. So Everest Base Camp Trek in December is feasible and doable.

Treatment of altitude sickness:

The main medicine for Altitude sickness is to lower down the elevations, Therefore If you get some symptoms are becoming worse, then it is necessary to descend.

For mild symptoms, one can stay at the same altitude to see if symptoms will resolve and ascend when symptoms have resolved entirely. Diamox can take to treat mild to moderate symptoms. If symptoms persist or worsen at this altitude need to be descent.

If you gee the severe symptoms of HACE or HAPE, We suggest you immediately descend whenever feasible. In wors case, Helicopter evacuation may be essential and we will help you to arrange it. you need your full coverage insurance for both rescue and medical assistance for this.

Do you need to hire a guide and porter for trekking to Everest?

Particularly, Hiring guides and porters are optional but it is better if you hire them as they can help you to solve your problems while trekking. Most of the people hire a guide for their trek. Not hiring a guide or porter is okay if you are traveling for the second time.

There are different ways for an Everest base camp trek, if you are planning to create your own crew then you will have to hire both a guide and porter. Furthermore, you can hire a trekking guide online however it will be safer if you go to the agency. Some of the trekking agencies will provide you guide and porter from Kathmandu but sometimes they will pick you up at Lukla airport. For your kind information, your contact with the trekking company then porter and guide will cost very less.

Not only this, our trekking agency company would have a well-trained guide so that that would provide you a lot of information. But if you are hiring a guide by yourself then make sure that the person is a Government certified guide and he has insurance. Be aware of while hiring a guide outside of the company. They may charge more.
