Why visit Everest Base Camp (Everest Base Camp)?

Frankly speaking, there is no other place like Everest Base Camp in the world. It is the most famous trekking destination in Nepal.

If you are only a beginner in the field of mountaineering and desire to see Everest in person but feel intimidated and overwhelmed, then Everest Base Camp trek is perfect for you.

You do not have to climb Mount Everest to observe the breathtaking view of the Himalayas; you get to do it from Everest Base Camp. It is a perfect place to start for aspiring trekkers.

How Difficult is Everest Base Camp Trek?

You do not have to be extremely fit and experienced in trekking to join the Everest Base Camp trek. If you are in decent shape and do not have any respiratory complications, you should be able to complete the trek without much difficulty. The Everest Base Camp trail is pretty easy, but the only hindrance is the altitude. Altitude sickness is very common, and it can happen to anyone regardless of fitness and health. You can take care of altitude sickness by taking medications, so there is no need to worry about the trek. With proper planning and preparation, you can fully enjoy the Everest Base Camp trek.

When to Embark on Everest Base Camp Trek?

The best time to visit Everest Base Camp is spring or autumn, the reason being the absence of rainfall. You would not want to be drenched in rainwater while trekking, would you? That’s why you should trek between April to May or October to November. During this period, you can fully concentrate on your trek without worrying about rainfall or storms. This is high time for trekkers, so if you are traveling solo, you can just follow the trail that everyone else is following. There is no need to worry about getting lost in the mountains.

14-day Everest Base Camp Trek Itinerary

You will begin your journey from Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. I recommend you take your time and explore the city, while you are in Nepal. It is an ancient city with amazing food culture and a rich history of art and architecture. So, take a walk around the city, before you start your trekking adventure. At the end of the Everest Base Camp trek, you will be back in Kathmandu.

Accommodation

During the Everest Base Camp trek, you will spend your night in many different places. Most of these places are run by local people who do not have any other means of making money. You can contribute to their well-being by using their services. In Lukla and Namche Bazaar, you will find decent accommodation at affordable prices. You can spend your night in any of the tea houses in Namche Bazaar. These places will give you a homely feeling.

However, as the altitude increases, your accommodations get more basic. This does not mean you get bad accommodations but the rooms are small with twin sharing beds. You will find bathrooms attached to your rooms in tea houses but in higher altitudes, the bathrooms may be squat bathrooms so prepare yourself mentally for all kinds of situations. The rooms will be clean and comfortable regardless of the size.
