About Everest base camp trek

Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp is the most adventurous and thrilling destination in Nepal. There are two base camps. One is from the Nepal side, and the other one is from China occupied Tibet.

The base camp situated in Nepal is called south base camp at the altitude of 17,598 feet above the sea level. It is the campsite where mountaineers used to stay for acclimatization before climbing on Everest. Every year around 40,000 trekkers visit this place from one of the most dangerous airports of this world- “Lukla Airport.”

To save energy, the tourists generally fly from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trekking route from Lukla will take you to the base camp. The time required to complete the Everest Base Camp Circuit from Kathmandu to Kathmandu via Lukla is two weeks generally.

The Lukla airstrip is also famous as the gateway to Everest.

During your trekking expedition, the Kala Pathar will be the most fantastic site. From there, you will get the most amazing views of Mount Everest. This is the point where you can see it. So do not forget to click pictures as much as possible.

Another interesting fact about Kala Pathar is that it is the highest point in the Himalayas where anyone can trek without a permit and climbing equipment. This is the place which you have never seen before, and you will never see the same at any other site.

The altitude you will face at Kala Pathar is 5,643 meters above sea level.

Some points related to health

This trekking expedition is easy in itself if you have decided to trek but do not take it with a careless attitude. You will not be roaming in the foothills like the Shivalik range. It is the trek route that goes from the areas which are very close to the core Himalayas.

Fatigue will be the most significant issue, so keep yourself busy with some motivational books during the rest, and also it is the best chance to talk to your soul through meditation. For many centuries the Himalayas are considered to be the best place for meditation.

The following health issues you may face during trekking:

  • Cold and Cough
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever

All these are the commission problems that can be met by anyone here due to the change of climatic conditions. The main issue here is acute mountain sickness, which is caused due to the high altitude. So be careful and consult with the doctor before going where he/she will prescribe some medicines which you have to carry in your medicine box. It will be a great help in the above cases there.

This trekking expedition is not just like that. You packed your bag and reached a base point and started trekking. Here you need facilities with expert guidance, so it will be better to book Everest Base Camp Trekking Package from some booking platform.

In the names of these platforms, my preference is to book from the BanBanjara booking platform. Their services are best at all to provide customized travelling options and itinerary also.
