Overview

One of the most renowned and exciting trekking expeditions in the world, EBC trek offers incredible views of the mountains and the mesmerizing beauty of the hills that one must witness at least once in their lifetime. There are two base camps where the first one is nestled on the north side at an elevation of 5150 meters above the sea level in Tibet-China and the other one with an altitude of 5364 meters in Nepal.

The trek to Everest Base Camp happens to be one of the most dramatic and astonishing in the Himalayas. The glory of this site is irresistible, varied, and spectacular and the lodgings available are of world-class standard. The local Sherpa people are very humble and helpful and you would love interacting with them. Supplies needed at the base camps are shipped by the locals only and with the help of the animals.

Generally, the trekkers prefer flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, and then from there, they start trekking to reach the Everest Base Camp. If you are an adventure seeker then you must think of living this lifelong memorable experience in Nepal. The awe-inspiring beauty of the panoramic landscapes adds more charm to the beauty of your trekking trail to the world’s highest peak.

We, Shikhar Travels (Yatra) ensure safety and security and invite you to book your trekking holiday with us as we truly believe safety precautions, experience, and a solid record of trekking in the Himalayas make your best choice for trekking in Nepal. Stumbling over loose rocks and onto a canvas of snow on reaching the tops of the final climb let you rest and admire the biggest achievement of your life.

Inarguably, almost anyone can plan and enjoy trekking to the Everest Base Camp but we believe that there are certain things that one needs to keep in mind to make their trekking experience smoother and more enjoyable.

Check out the below-stated tips and tricks to save your time and money to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime adventure experience.

Buy gear in Kathmandu

  • Undoubtedly, competition is all around the corner and Kathmandu is home to several trekking shops from where one can purchase the required trekking gear at very reasonable rates. However, you need to be very alert while selecting the gear as the quality varies.

Select a reliable and authorized travel agency

  • One needs to be very attentive and wise while engaging a tour agency for their trekking experience to Everest Base Camp. If you fail to do so then you are not going to complete your adventure activity with ease and comfort.

Keep count on your baggage weight limit

  • Your main pack should not exceed 10 kg of weight and the carry-on pack must be of 5 kg only and you need to strictly adhere to this weight limit policy or else you might not attend the flight. Although it is possible to carry extra luggage by paying extra cash we would not recommend you to do so.

Be ready for flight delays

  • Climatic conditions in high altitude areas are inconsistent which leads to delay in flights. We advise you to carry extra snacks, a book if you love reading, and most importantly a lot of patience.

Take care of your feet and overall health

  • Your safety and security are our topmost priorities therefore, we recommend you purchase a good pair of shoes to save your feet on the rough mountain slopes. Additionally, we also recommend you to binge on the meals offered by your travel agency and if you are thinking to taste something from a restaurant or hotel then check the authenticity and the hygiene level of that place first.

Carry your first aid kit

  • This is the most important point that you must keep in mind as none of us knows that how our body would react to the atmosphere of a new place. Also, if you are suffering from any prolonging illness then do not forget to carry the medications prescribed by the doctor.
