Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty

It is important to know how difficult or easy the trek is before starting the trek. Many aspects can make the trek difficult so you should know about those aspects as well. The trek can be difficult due to weather and high altitude. So, it is necessary to choose the right time and prepare yourself for high altitude. Trekking at high altitudes can cause altitude sickness so it is important to acclimatize your body while trekking.

The trek is easy at lower altitudes and somewhat challenging at higher altitudes. This trek is for everyone so you can complete it with good preparation and a bit of self-determination. No hard-core technical skills or training are required to complete the trip. Although no hard-core technical skills are required, you should be able to walk for long periods as this hike involves a lot of uphill and downhill walking. The trek is of moderate to strenuous level so good physical fitness is required to complete it.

Best Season for Trekking to Everest Base Camp

Weather in the Everest region can be quite unpredictable, and conditions can change rapidly. So, before trekking to the Everest base camp, it is important to know which season is suitable for trekking. It is always a good idea to be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions and be flexible with the itinerary if needed.

The best seasons for trekking to Everest base camp are usually autumn (September, October, and November) and spring (March, April, and May). During autumn and spring, there is less rainfall and less cold which makes the trek easier to complete. The climate is also perfect during these seasons. A clear view of the majestic Himalayas and the surroundings can be seen. With the proper planning, you can trek at any time although it is a good idea to do it in the best seasons

Risk and Security During the Trek

Every year about 3,0000 tourists come to trek to Everest region. In general, the Everest Base Camp trek is a safe and enjoyable trek. However, some necessary precautions must be taken to make the journey safer. Trekking at high altitudes in the Himalayas has some potential risks and challenges, but these can be minimized with proper pre-planning and preparation.

One of the main risks is altitude sickness, which can occur during quick ascents to high altitudes. The best way to avoid altitude sickness is to spend a few days at a low altitude before climbing to a high altitude. Drink plenty of fluids and eat a high-carbohydrate diet. Another possible risk is exposure to extremely cold temperatures. It is important to wear appropriate clothing to avoid the cold.

Another potential risk is dehydration, which can be caused by dry air and high levels of physical activity. To avoid this risk, stay well hydrated, and take regular breaks to rest. You can trek without a guide, porter, or agency but it is safer to trek through a trekking company. An experienced guide or trekking company can provide information about local conditions. The guides selected by the trekking company are licensed by the Government of Nepal and the porters are well-trained. Guides and porters will protect you as well as your luggage throughout the trek.

Altitude Sickness and Acclimatization

Altitude sickness is also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS). It can occur during rapid ascent to high altitudes. Altitude sickness is most common at altitudes above 2,400 meters, but it can occur in some people at lower altitudes. At higher altitudes, there is less oxygen which can cause various symptoms such as headache, nausea, shortness of breath, and fatigue. If you ignore these symptoms, it can lead to serious problems.

You can avoid this problem by taking some precautions. It is essential to include acclimatization days in the trekking itinerary to avoid altitude sickness. If you are well-acclimated to lower altitudes, you will find it easier at higher altitudes. Acclimatization days at Namche and Dingboche are required on the trek to base camp. Another effective way to avoid altitude sickness is to ascend slowly. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. If serious problems occur it is best to take medication and descend to a lower altitude as soon as possible.

Purified water, Shower, Toilet, and Mobile Charging

Boiled pure drinking water and mineral bottled water are available at almost every tea house and lodge during the trek. Hot shower is possible by gas geyser or hot bucket but you have to pay extra money for it. It is a good idea to carry some extra batteries for the camera and mobile. If not, you can charge the battery at almost every teahouse where you stay overnight but you have to pay per battery for charging.

Toilets are available everywhere but mostly they are simple toilets i.e. squat toilets, and these are usually outside the room. Some good hotels and lodges have western commode toilets attached to the rooms. You can find western commodes in lower altitudes but most high-altitude guesthouses have squat toilets. It is better to carry things like toilet paper, hand washing liquid, sanitizer, soap, and towels with you as these are not available everywhere.

Everest Base Camp Trek Permits

Trekking in the Himalayan region and national parks requires a permit. Everest Base Camp is not a restricted area so it does not require special permits but other permits are required. Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Village Entry Permit and Everest National Park Entry Permit are required.

Since the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu rural municipality entry permit is not available in Kathmandu, it must be obtained in Lukla. Everest National Park entry permit can be obtained from the Nepal Tourism Board office in Kathmandu or at the entrance of Everest National Park.

Guide and Porter

Hiring a guide for the trek is recommended, especially if you are not familiar with the area. Guides provide information about local places, culture, and history. They also help you arrange transport, accommodation, and food. Guides also protect you and your belongings during trekking.

If your luggage is small and light then you can carry it yourself but if the luggage is heavy then a porter is required. By hiring a porter you don’t have to worry about carrying heavy luggage. The maximum weight carried by a porter is 20 kg. Usually, 2 people’s luggage is carried by 1 porter so you can share 1 porter with two people.  If you have more luggage than this you can hire more porters.

Packing List for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

A visit to Everest Base Camp is a high-altitude tour where it is cool throughout the year. So, it is necessary to pack some essential items for the trip. Since this journey is not as difficult as trekking, you don’t need a lot of items. But traveling at high altitudes requires something important. We have prepared a packing list with the relevant gear required for the EBC Helicopter Tour:

1. Windproof down jacket

2. Woolen hat

3. Sun lotion

4. UV protection sunglass

5. A bottle of water

6. Lip balm and moisturizer

7. Silk/nylon scarf and gloves

8. Full-sleeve shirt

9. A pair of warm trousers

10. Light snacks, energy bars, and dry fruits

11. Camera

Note: The above-mentioned materials will be enough for this tour. Over-carrying can add weight so we encourage you to carry only essential clothing.

Best Time for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

Everest region is located at a high altitude and due to the high altitude, the weather changes most of the time. You can do the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour anytime throughout the year. But sometimes weather conditions cause disruption in flight operations. So, it is important to know what is the best time to tour the Himalayas of Nepal. But when the weather is favorable and the view is clear, that time is everyone’s choice.

It is not possible to operate the flight during fog or rain. Summer (June, July, and August) is the rainy season. The weather is hot and humid during this time, resulting in heavy rainfall. A cloudy sky blocks the view of the mountains. Flight delays and cancellations are common during this time due to clouds and rain. If the flight takes place but there is no clear view due to clouds then there is no point in doing the tour. So, the Monsoon season is not a good time for the EBC Heli Tour.

You can choose spring and autumn for the flight. These two seasons are the best time to visit Nepal. As the spring season is the blooming season, the settlements and the forests look pleasant and beautiful. In autumn the weather is clear and the climate is cool. During this time the green valleys and forests look natural. The Himalayan scenery looks beautiful on a sunny day with a blue sky. Autumn is often the best and least risky time for adventure activities. Clear mountains, clear skies, and warm days are the main features of the autumn season.

It is cold in the winter season, but the snow layer is thick and enhances the beauty of the mountains. So, if not in spring or autumn then winter can be an option.

How safe is Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour?

This tour is a high-altitude flight tour of Nepal to see the highest mountains in the Everest region. So how safe is the helicopter tour in the Himalayan region of Nepal is of interest to all travelers. We focus on customer safety and use a powerful helicopter for tours. The helicopter flies at a high altitude of 5,643 meters. For that our helicopters are powerful enough to withstand weather and strong winds.

The pilots and crew members are professionals who have been flying in the Himalayas for many years. So, the Everest base camp helicopter tour is 100% safe. For an easy and safe Everest Base Camp Tour, we would always recommend using a helicopter. If the weather does not support the flight or there is a technical error, the flight will not take off. The helicopter tour will not start from Kathmandu under any pressure.

Altitude Sickness and Acclimatization during Trek

One of the problems that can occur while trekking in high mountains is altitude sickness. So, you should be very careful about altitude sickness. If you ignore it, it can cause serious problems. Altitude sickness is common when traveling to high mountains. But you can avoid it by taking some precautions.

To avoid the problem of altitude sickness it is necessary to acclimatize in certain places while walking uphill. If you are well acclimated to low altitudes, you will find it easier at high altitudes.

In general, at altitudes above 2,500 meters, there is a risk of altitude sickness. At altitudes above 3,500 meters, there is less oxygen so the body needs more time to adjust. Gaining altitudes above 5,000 meters requires extra care.

Acclimatization days in Namche and Dingboche

We include Acclimatization days in the itinerary to prevent altitude sickness. Our itinerary includes 2 acclimatization days during the Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal. We allow for slow ascents to avoid altitude sickness and recommend drinking 4-5 liters of water a day.

All these facilities are available on the Everest Base Camp Trek Route. Mineral water and boiled purified drinking water are available in almost all teahouses.

Water facilities

Cold water is available for bathing, but it is difficult to take shower with cold water in this area. So, you need hot water for the shower and can use a gas geyser or hot bucket of water. But you have to pay extra 4 – 5 dollars per head for using the hot shower.

Among the personal items, while traveling, mobiles and cameras are the most used items that need charging from time to time. It is a good idea to carry some extra batteries while doing the Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal. If not, that’s fine, almost every teahouse has mobile/camera battery charging facilities. But teahouses charge an extra $3-5 per battery charge.

Toilet Facilities 

Another concern throughout the trekking period is the toilet. There is no need to worry about toilets either as toilets are available in those teahouses. But these toilets are simple toilets so don’t expect the bathroom facilities you have at home.

A simple toilet is a squat toilet and is usually available outside the room. But rooms with attached toilets are available in luxurious hotels and lodges. At altitudes below 4000m, you may find toilets with western commodes. But at altitudes above 4000m, most guesthouses have squat toilets. All the things needed for the toilet are usually not available in ordinary toilets. So, it is better to carry essential toiletries like toilet paper, hand washing liquid, wipes, sanitizer, soap, a small dry towel, etc.

Luggage During Trek

A short trip may not have that much luggage, but a long trip usually has a lot of luggage. Even on this long trek of 13 days, you may be concerned about carrying luggage. You carry some of your light things like warm clothes, water, snacks, sunblock, a camera, towel, soap, toothbrush, etc.

Apart from those light goods, you need porters to carry heavy luggage. Porters carry a maximum weight of 20 kg in Nepal Trekking.

Hot water for bathing is available in almost all places but if not, it is available at your request. Not just simple teahouses, but if your budget is high, luxurious hotels are also available.

Everest Base Camp Short Trek Cost

The total cost of your Everest Base Camp Short Trekking depends on the route, trekking agency, service, and several other factors. The cost can estimate based on the preferences of the trekkers. So, to determine the cost, trekkers have to decide what kind of service they want to take. It also depends on the size of the trekking group. If you are single, it will be a little more expensive, if you are in a group, the cost will be less. If you are doing luxury trekking then it will cost around $4,500 but if you are doing a simple budget trek then you can do it for $1,350.

The Difficulty of Everest Base Camp

Before starting any trek, it is important to know how difficult or easy the trek is. Weather is also a factor that can make any trip difficult or easy. Everest Base Camp Short Trek is suitable in spring and autumn and is also a bit easier.

It is easy at lower altitudes but somewhat challenging at higher altitudes. This trip is for everyone and can complete with good trekking preparation and a bit of self-determination. No hard-core technical skills need to complete this trek. Although hard-core technical skills are not required, one must be able to walk for a long time as this trek involves a lot of up and down climbing.

Another aspect that makes this trek difficult is its altitude, which can sometimes lead to altitude sickness. So, it is important to acclimatize your body before attempting the next altitude. To avoid altitude sickness, you should acclimatize yourself one day at Namche and one day at Dingboche. This trek is of moderate to the strenuous level so you need good physical fitness to complete the trek.

Best seasons for Everest Base Camp Trek

The weather aspect is important for Trekking in Nepal. If you come to visit Nepal when the weather is not good, it can cause difficulties. So, before trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal, it is better to know which seasons are best for trekking. During autumn and spring, there is not much rain and not much cold which makes it easy for trekkers to complete the trek.

These seasons have the best climate. So, during these seasons, you can get a clear view of the majestic mountains and surroundings. You can trek according to your wish throughout the year as there is no restriction for trekking in Nepal in any season. With proper planning and management, you can trek at any time. But, we recommend trekking in the best seasons (Autumn and Spring).

What about security during Everest Base Camp Short Trek

Everest base camp is a center of attraction for trekkers from all over the world. And, every year around 30,000 tourists visit this area for trekking. All the trekkers return after completing the trek well. So, there is no doubt that the Everest Base Camp Short Trek is safe for trekkers. There is no problem if you trek without a guide, porter, or agency. But, trekking through a local trekking company in Nepal is easier, better, and safer for you. The safety of customers is the most important to us.

All our guides and porters are selected for the trip. All the selected guides are licensed by the Government of Nepal and the porters are well trained. Our guides and porters will protect you as well as your belongings throughout the trekking. But during the Short Everest Base Camp Trek, we advise you to take care of your personal belongings as well. Take your personal belongings with you to the room and lock your room if necessary.

Altitude Sickness and Acclimatization During EBC Trek

Altitude sickness is a common problem on high mountain trips, but you can avoid it by taking some precautions. Yet, if you ignore the symptoms of altitude sickness, it can cause serious problems. So, acclimatization days are necessary to avoid the problem of altitude sickness.

Acclimatization is very important during a high trek like EBC. Generally, if you go above 2,500m you are at risk of altitude sickness. At an altitude of 3,500 meters, there is a lack of oxygen so your body needs more time to adjust. Gaining an altitude of more than 5,000 meters requires serious attention. If you fail to acclimatize well to low altitude, you will struggle higher up. So, need to have an acclimatization period in the schedule for the Everest base camp trek.

It is clear that the more time you spend at the critical points, the better you will feel. So, it is necessary to have acclimatization days at Namche and Dingboche during the base camp trip. The itinerary we design helps prevent altitude sickness as we allow time for acclimatization and slow ascents. Yet, you don’t have to worry too much, as our team takes care of your health and also suggests ways to take precautions.

Purified water, Shower, Toilet, and Mobile Battery During Trek

You will have access to boiled pure drinking water in almost every village during Everest Base Camp Short Trek. Mineral bottled water is also available in all the teahouses. Cold water for a shower is free, but it is difficult to take a cold shower as it gets cold in the Everest region. Therefore, it is better to take a bath with a hot shower and this is possible by a gas geyser or a hot bucket. But for the hot shower, you have to pay extra 4 – 5 dollars per head. In terms of camera and mobile batteries, it’s a good idea to carry some extra batteries if possible. If not, you can charge mobile/camera batteries at almost every teahouse where you stay overnight. But for charging you have to pay a cost of around 3-5 dollars per battery.

Toilets are available at almost all places during trekking, but they are simple toilets, i.e. squat toilets. Don’t expect all the bathroom amenities you have at home. These toilets are usually outside the room. But in some good hotels and lodges, the western commode toilet is attached to the room. At lower altitudes, you can find western commodes but most guesthouses along the Everest Base Camp Short Trek route above 4000 meters have squat toilets. It is better to carry essential toiletry items such as toilet paper, hand washing liquid, wipes, sanitizer, soap, and a small dry towel with you as these are not available in all places.

Permits for Everest Base Camp Trek

 

Trekking in the Himalayan region and higher national parks of Nepal requires a permit. Permits vary by region and may also vary by specific trip. Since Everest Base Camp is not a restricted area, it does not need special permits but other permits are required. TIMS – Trekkers Information Management System is still in use in other areas, but is not currently applicable for the Everest region.

 

Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit has been implemented from 1 October 2018 by replacing TIMS Card. This permit is implemented by the local government of Khumbu according to which Rs 2,000 is collected from each foreigner. This permit should be taken in Lukla as it is not available in Kathmandu.

 

Another permit you need for the Everest Base Camp Short Trek is the Everest National Park Entry Permit. You can get this permit at the Nepal Tourism Board office in Kathmandu. For convenience, you can get this permit at the entrance of Everest National Park. But you don’t have to worry about it, as we conduct the trekking in the package, it is all our responsibility. Our guide will arrange all necessary permits for trekking.

 

Weight to be carried on Everest trekking

 

While Short EBC Trek you carry some of your personal items like warm clothes, water, snacks, sunblock, a camera, towel, soap, toothbrush, and more. Generally, these lightweight items range from 5 to 10 kilograms (10 to 20 pounds). If your luggage is small or you can carry it yourself, you don’t need a porter. But you need a porter because there are usually other goods besides small light weight goods.

 

If you hire a porter then you don’t have to worry about carrying heavy goods. The maximum weight carried by a porter is 20 kg. There is a provision for porters to carry a maximum weight of 20 kg while trekking in any area of Nepal. Trekking companies usually provide 1 porter for 2 people and you can share that porter with two people. If you want to carry more weight than this you can hire more porters.

 

Emergency During Everest Base Camp Short Trek

 

You can do Everest Base Camp Short Trek without any agency, porter, or guide. But if you trek through a local trekking agency, it will be easier for you in various situations. Generally, if you are not well or have any problems, our team will take care of you. But in case of an emergency, your guide will call us immediately and we will arrange for a helicopter. According to the information from the guide, the helicopter will take you to the hospital in Kathmandu from where you are. You will have to pay for all the hospital expenses and also the helicopter.
