A slow pace is critical: Slow and Steady. When taking on a challenge like hiking to Everest Base Camp, or any long trek/climb, you have to remember that it is a marathon, not a sprint. Acclimatization to the low levels of oxygen in the mountains requires you to take your time, to slowly get your body used to lack of oxygen. All the research suggests, spending more time at 3,500m/ 11,500ft. So we spend 3 nights acclimatizing in Namche Bazaar. This is absolutely key to your success in the mountains. There is never a time on the trek where you should need to walk at a fast pace, you should only be walking at a pace that you can carry on a conversation with others, without feeling too much exertion physically. Obviously, there are tougher sections throughout the trek where you may need to stop talking and catch your breath, however you always want to try and keep your pace to a snail’s pace, not a rabbit’s! More acclimatization means a safer and more enjoyable trekking experience.
Everest region is rich in flora and fauna. There are quiet diverse since the region ranges in altitude from less than 2000 meters above sea level at Jiri to the high peaks of the Himalaya at over 8000 meters. Up to 4000 meters you will find dense stands of forest including pine, oak and the spectacular flowering rhododendrons. The crop under cultivation will depend on the season that you visit but expect to see wheat, barley, corn and potatoes at some stage. Domesticated animals will range from cattle, buffalo, goats and pigs to the all-purpose beast of mountains-the yak.
Tips : Handi-wipes. You won’t be showering much showering much. Nobody does on Everest and we all smell. Showers are not very appealing at -10 degrees Celcius and you can go for days without properly washing. Handiwipes and hand sanitizer at least helps keep you healthy. We’re fans of Gold Bond powder as well for helping with itch and rashes and just relieving sticky skin.
The Everest Base Camp Trek-14 Days trek is similar to the regular Everest Base Camp trek. The only difference is that this trek includes the international arrival and departure itineraries as well. The 15 Day Everest Base Camp Trek offers an extra day for rest in Kathmandu. During the rest day, we sightseeing around the Kathmandu valley, go last minute souvenir shopping or stroll around the streets of Thamel. The 15 Day Everest Base Camp trek offers a safety day as the flights from Kathmandu to Lukla and vice-versa often get delayed or cancelled.

Go with an Established Tour Company – You probably think I threw this in here just to give our own company a plug so it’s probably better to relate it with a story. My aunt went on a trek to Everest a few years back and decided not to use our company because it cost $50 more than the independent guide she found. Everything went well until she got back to Lukla where bad weather was limiting the number of flights going out. Our good relationships with the locals meant we were able to get our clients on some of the flights. On the other hand, my aunt was stuck for 2 days and missed her international flight making that $50 look like a lot less of a bargain. She told me this after the fact otherwise I would have tried to help but it’s a good story since it highlights how important having good local relationships is and it’s just one way of many an established company can add value.
