How to trek to Everest Base Camp | Trekking Everest Base Camp

How to trek to Everest Base Camp
Jenny Ling 14 Jan, 2013
Mount Everest has captivated intrepid men and women since the 1920s. The exploits of legends such as George Mallory, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay put the mighty mountain on the map; thousands have followed, making huge sacrifices – many with their lives – in their own attempts to the summit.

But today, the trek to Everest Base Camp has become an achievable goal for people from all walks of life who want a glimpse of the world’s highest peak. In 2012, between 35,000 and 37,000 people trekked in the Everest region.
What’s it like trekking to Everest Base Camp?
Aside from breathtaking scenery, travellers to the region can experience unique Sherpa culture by visiting monasteries and museums along the way. Days are filled with walking for the sheer pleasure of it, past colourful prayer wheels and across swing bridges straight out of an Indiana Jones movie, while evenings are rewarded with hot food and conversation with like-minded people around the dining-room fire.
The heady mix of natural beauty, fascinating culture and a personal sense of achievement, as well as warm Nepalese hospitality, makes the Everest Base Camp trek one of the world’s most unforgettable.

When should I make the trek?
From March to May and from September to December. It gets hot in May, just before the monsoon season; be prepared for possible rain. December reaches below-zero temperatures but the days are still beautiful and there are fewer trekkers (but remember to wrap up warm in the evenings).
Do I need a guide?
The Nepal government is considering making the hiring of a guide compulsory this season, after the disappearances of some lone trekkers and the death of a Belgian trekker in the Langtang region in June 2012.
But the solo trekking ban has been put on hold, so for now it’s still possible to go it alone. But hiring a guide or porter has many advantages: for US$10 to $20 a day you’re giving someone a valuable job and in turn you will learn plenty about the local culture and natural environment.
A trekking company offers the advantage of having everything arranged for you, including airport transfers, accommodation and porters and/or guides and their insurance. You can book before you go with western tour companies, though you’ll pay significantly less by booking in Kathmandu – ensure they’re registered with the Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN). For a list of registered companies visit TAAN

How do I get in shape?
Nothing can really prepare you for the trek’s extreme hills and altitude of up to 5545m.  But don’t be put off – people with average fitness can do this trek. ‘Slow and steady’ is the key to achieving, and enjoying, your trek.
Prepare with cardiovascular training several times a week: cycling, swimming, hill climbing and lots of walking. Aim for a five-hour walk once a week. Seek out hills or find a tall building and repeatedly walk up and down the stairs.
What should I take?
Pack lightly – aim for 10 to 15kg. Consider your porter’s load before you include that big bottle of shampoo or pair of jeans.
A fleece jacket, down jacket and thermal underwear are a must, as the Himalaya gets cold above 3000m any time of the year. Also take two pairs of long pants, two or three T-shirts (synthetic fabrics – not cotton – that wick away sweat), and another warm jumper or light fleece.

Footwear requires lightly broken-in boots, trekking socks, and sneakers or sandals for evenings. You will also need a raincoat, gloves, woollen hat, sunhat and polarised sunglasses. A good sleeping bag (rated to -20°C/0°F) is essential; if it’s winter, a thermal liner makes it extra toasty.
Opt for travel-size toiletries, including a good sunscreen, lip balm, travel towel and tissues. Baby wipes are handy for days when you can’t shower.
Your first aid kit should include medication for diarrhoea, antibiotics for a chest or sinus infection, and adhesive bandages for blisters. Visit your doctor for Nepal-specific immunisations. Using two 1L water bottles with water purification tablets is a reliable and safe way to drink water – and more environmentally friendly than buying bottled water from lodges

Staying healthy and safe on the trek
Take your time.
Altitude sickness can affect anybody – even the extremely fit. (The acclimatisation days, usually at Namche and Dingboche, are set for a reason.) Watch for signs of altitude sickness: symptoms include headaches, dizziness, sleeplessness, loss of appetite and breathlessness. Bring a supply of the medication Diamox for treatment; if symptoms persist, descend.
Be vegetarian.
As tempting as it is to try a juicy yak steak or ‘buff burger’, be aware that all meat is carried up by porters from below Lukla due to the no-killing policy in Sagamartha National Park, so by the time you have it, it’s getting old. The safest, healthiest option is to eat dal bhat (lentil soup with rice) – it’s made fresh daily and is a great source of protein and energy. As the saying goes, ‘Dal Bhat Power, 24 Hour!’
Cover up.
The sun here is harsh, so use a good sunscreen and reapply regularly. Wear long-sleeved tops, long pants and a light scarf – or be prepared to blister.

Everest Base Camp Trekking | Everest Base Camp Trekking Details | Everest Base Camp Trekking Price,Cost | Everest Base Camp Trekking Itinerary

            Everest Base Camp Trek – 15 days…at your pace
A classic trek that takes you through the heart of Sherpa country right to the foothills of the
mighty Mt. Everest….with trails that lead to splendid wonders, serene monasteries & majestic landscapes….
Designed for those wanting the 'classic' Everest trek where you find Sherpa culture, and chances to click some of the best pictures in the world. The adventure also takes you through challenging terrain that includes glacial moraines and a steep climb up Kala Patthar where the adrenalin really goes into overdrive. As you hike up to Everest Base Camp, expect some 3-4 hours hiking every day of the trip, but be prepared for some longer days on the return journey. A reasonable level of fitness is required. After exploring historical Kathmandu, we take a short flight to the hillside village of Lukla (2800m). As we move through the splendid mix and eye-catching vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, we trek to the Sherpa 'capital' of Namche Bazaar. This is an interesting, bustling and friendly town where amazingly, even at such an altitude, almost everything under the skies can be found here. Namche was formerly a trading post between Nepal and Tibet.We allow a day's acclimatization hereabouts and then move on to the beautiful Thyangboche Monastery. At this peaceful landmark, we find ourselves amongst the Mani walls, prayer flags and chortens & soon realize we are in the shadows of the magnificent Everest massif and Ama Dablam, where the views are breathtakingly dumbfounding.
The trek from Tengboche ascends slowly but steadily to Dingboche, Lobuche and finally Gorak Shep, advancing above the tree line into more rugged and moonscape-like surroundings. Gorak Shep, at 5100m is in fact the highest point that we will lodge at, and we take our time to reach this altitude after getting well acclimatized. Naturally, we leave our packs at Gorek Shep to make an afternoon incursion to Everest Base Camp, passing spectacular glacial forms and enjoying the triumph of having made it all the way! A trip that will surely go down into our dairies…..

According to a recent survey by the Trekkers Paradise Group (TPG-USA) Annapurna region has been recognized as one of the world’s best trekking trails to hike on. More than 40,000 tourists annually visit this area. The Annapurna trekking region consists of peaks Annapurna I, II, III, IV, those of Annapurna South peaks, Mt. Dhaulagiri and several other peaks. The major highlights when trekking in this region are the ancient mid-western salt route settlements of Manang, Thorong La pass between Nepal and Tibet, Muktinath Temple and the deepest gorge of world Kali Gandaki. The Gateway to the Annapurna trekking region is the famous city of Pokhara.
Mustang, or Lo Manthang, the desert plateau located in the upper valley of the River Kali Gandaki, and to the north of the main Himalayan range also falls in this region. Tourist access to Mustang is controlled to help retain its exclusiveness. The highlights of the trek include the visit to the Mustang Palace, the visit to Lo Manthang and pony rides up to the Nepal-Tibet border.
The region is said to have seven ethnic groups living and working in this area, from Hindu farmers to Tibetan Lamas. The most prominent ethnic groups of Annapurna region are Gurungs, Thakali and Manangba. Due to the extremes of elevation the region contains a remarkable diversity of flora; from sub-tropical lowland forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron in the south to the high alpine meadows and windswept desert plateaus in the north, most bordering Tibet. The Animals found here are pika, blue sheep and Himalayan Tahr.
