The mountains have unpredictable and dramatic weathers conditions. Hence you need to be fully prepared and lot of planning is needed for months or years for EBC Trek.
You can go for EBC all the year round, but Autumn season (September – November) and Spring (March – May) are the best time for the Everest Base Camp trek. During these times, the weather remains stable for long. Visibility is great during these times and also there are lower risks of drastic variations in weather.
Everest region is tricky. EBC is a high altitude trek and is full of straight ascends. The trails are not even and will take a great toll on your physique. There are full chances of getting high altitude sickness. You should stay with your guide and walk slowly maintaining your own pace and keep resting to get proper acclimatization.
EBC is a long trek, almost 62 kilometers one side from Lukla and involves trekking for 8 to 9 hours in a day. The trail is uneven and unpaved, and includes many ups and downs, so you will be walking a rough path all the way. On an average you gain an altitude of about 500-600m everyday as you walk for an average time of 5-6 hours every day.
Mount Everest lies in the Solukhumbu District of Nepal. The high altitude mountain flight to Lukla airport provides abundant scenery of mountains and the hills throughout the journey. But before all that, spend a day in Kathmandu and tour the World Heritage Sites and collect your permits as trekking in Nepal requires obtaining Everest Region Permit and TIMS Card.
Your amazing lifetime experience begins the moment you decide to embark on EBC. You are mentally on the trek as soon as you get on to the flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing-Hillary airport at Lukla. Getting to Lukla is only possible by flight. During this 40 minute flight you enjoy splendid Himalaya views all around your plane. This mountain flight is organised early morning to take advantage of a good weather and an eye-catching flight experience.
An exhilarating flight to Lukla; Lukla, a mountain top village is always buzzing with excitement as trekkers and guides are busy preparing for the trek. This is the last point where you will find modern civilization before you begin the ascent towards Everest Base Camp.
Trekking along one of the highest trails in the world, exposure to Sherpa culture and several other experiences make the base camp journey to Everest memorable. Starting at the altitude of 1400 meters in Kathmandu, you rise above 5,545 meters at the top of Kala Patthar. From the top, the view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse along with other peaks is simply beyond definition. You have to be there to experience it!
You’ll make stops and spend nights in Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep to experience the hospitality of the people of Nepal. Namche is the trading hub of the mountain.
You experience the natural beauty of the Khumbu glacier. Away from your busy city life, you enjoy the beauty of the surroundings and the peaceful feeling of nature without being disturbed by phone calls, and internet. The Himalayan villages have their own culture and tradition.
Tibetan Buddhism started in this region and you get engulfed by it everywhere you go. You’ll experience Buddhism in numerous monasteries and gompas that come on the way, historic Tengboche Monastery being the best.
During the trek you pass through the villages of Pheriche, Namche, Lobuche, Tengboche and Gorakhshep. Throughout the trip, various mountains peek as you move from tea house to tea house. Among them, Mount Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Mount Everest are definitely the highlights. Trekking will get challenging as you stand at 2880 meters in Lukla. The terrain keeps ascending towards the base camp at a soaring height of 5830 meters.
It’s a strenuous trip, and requires a lot of physical fitness and willingness to push you higher. High Altitude Sickness (Acute Mountain Sickness) is a risk to be considered while trekking in the Everest as well as other high regions. To prevent this, regular exercise and involvement in physical activities before the trek starts is necessary. While trekking, walking pace along with acclimatization is necessary in order to further reduce the chance of getting it. However, a proper insurance (emergency evacuation and health cover) is recommended as well as mandatory.
