What are Everest base camp trek difficulties?

Everest base camp trek is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world. Many trekkers, adventure lovers & mountain climbers have everlasting dreams to reach even in base camp within a lifetime. Thousands of people have been trekking & camp; climbing for more than half a century from all over the world every year. Those people have created a kind of amazing world record with Everest by doing different unbelievable activities. Everest base camp trek is normally a formal treading route for those who have been living in the Himalayan & near to it, But there is still the question that how difficult is Everest base camp trek for those who haven’t been Himalayan altitude or what do we need to have to reach there successfully. So we want to make clear about those enthusiasms as below;

Everest base camp trek difficulty first; Physical condition

Many people believe that if you are planning to trek around the top of the world,you need to be a marathon runner. But the reality is that, if you can walk 4-5 hours up & down with a light pack you can conquer it. Porter carries most of your equipment for trekking except the camera, water bottle & snacks, so you won’t have heavy weight.
The biggest concern for you is about acclimating to higher altitude & this hasn’t proven to have any link with how fit you are. So, if you go slowly to high altitude there would be more chances to adapt to it easily, but sometimes it also doesn’t work as properly,therefore you must be aware of food & drink. Finally, normal people who have strong will power & desire to go Everest base camp can reach comfortably, if they get a responsible & experienced guide with them.

Everest base camp trek difficulty second; Internet Or Wifi

Most of the people expect wifi where they go & that includes high mountain ranges in the world. Unfortunately, there is limited wifi & for that, you need to pay extra money everywhere. That limited date you have bought in around $5- 10 can only be enough to send some email & Facebook updates. So, analyzing internet problems of our clients, A-One Himalayan treks & Tour Pvt.Ltd provides Pocket wifi as demanding with the size of the group by a slogan that”live the life”

Everest base camp trek difficulty third; Accommodation

There is almost well accommodation until the Pheriche, then after it would be basic, cold & variably clean. Normally a room with 2 single beds, wooden cots with thin foam padding. A sheet, sort of blankets, pillow & pillowcase always provided, don’t;t expect them to be washed between customers. So, you can pack a sleeping bag in your luggage. Otherwise, if you don’t want to bring it, our company manages it here in Kathmandu with some rent.Generally, rooms are hardboard cubicles with no heat or sound insulation. There is also some attached basic bathroom, which might not be easy to get during peak season, so you will be sharing a toilet cubicle which may be squat or western.There will be no heating or in winter or high altitudes, but a yak dung stove in the lodge dining room.

Everest base camp trek difficulty forth; Food & Nutrition

Dal Bhat is the favorite & regular meal of Nepali people. It is a good bet if you are starving because tops ups come free. According to those foreigners, it is the first choice in Nepal. Instead of this, different soups will be beneficial for health in the high altitude, but it won’t be good enough for hungry trekkers. Other than there are plenty of dishes prepared from potatoes as well as noodles, mo:mo,Tibetan bread & pasta with tomato sauce can be found in restaurants & lodges.

Best time to visit Nepal 2023

The best time to visit Nepal depends upon your favorable time & choice of Natural attraction. Spring & the Autumn/fall are the best seasons to hike around the Himalaya, peak climbing & adventure activities above 3,000m, because of clear skies & pleasant temperature.

Even though monsoon is considered the low season of Nepal, it is the best time to take sightseeing around different cities & safari activities with the low budget for food & Accommodation as well as tour packages. And, if you want to avoid the crowd during the trip it would be best.

Spring is a good time to explore nature, culture, valleys, & the magnificent Himalayan range. During this season national flowers of Nepal Rhododendron blooms in different colors almost across the country. This season also is popular for those who are enthusiastic about Buddhist culture & festivals.

If you have that confidence, I can adjust even in any cold temperature with comfortable equipment, we would like to recommend you to come to visit in this season with a low budget & out of the crowd. Low humanity & minimal chance of rain makes this season-best for the travel photography & low-altitude hikes.

this season weather is cloudy, foggy, and excessive cold in the upper
region. Many trekking routes and passes closed in this season, those
specific packages like Everest base camp, Annapurna Circuit,
Langtang Trek and Poonhill can be done in this season as well. But
because of heavy snowing and cold temperatures create a more
slippery path which would be risky for you. On the other hand, if you
want to do some adventitious activity around Himalaya in the winter
in a peaceful way and save some accommodation fees, it might be
suitable for you except over mention.

and fall, but still, there is a possibility to trek in some specific region.
Monsoon starts in Nepal around mid of Jun and normally it can occur
1,2 hours every day. Even though the temperature would be warm and
fine as aggregate. Because of trekking region is mainly hilly and
mountaineering geography sometime there would be the possibility of
landslides after regular raining. The same as vaporization occurs after
raining covers the Himalayas and reduces the visibility of it.
On the other hands, there is some specific region which has less
possibility of raining and we can manage those trips, as usual, like as
Mustang, Dolpa, Anapurna circuit, Manasalu, Chitwan, etc.

Mid Sept- November: (Fall/ Best season) First best time to visit Nepal

From Mid Sept- November is one of the best trekking seasons,
because of the weather and different Nepalese great festivals. There
would be less chance of raining and cloudy around the Himalaya so you
can get access to perfect visibility in every corner. The night view of this
season also makes your journey around Himalaya more precious. As
well as in the moth of October Nepalese people celebrate the two
biggest festivals of the county respectively Dashain and Tihar.so if
you come to Nepal in this season you will feel festive and we hope
you will like it. There are no specific regions and recommended trips
