How difficult is the trek to Everest Base Camp?

Although it require technical climbing expertise, the Everest Base Camp trek is somewhat challenging. Basically, the ascent to 5,364 meters (17,599 feet) is a strenuous trek. The 12-day climb up and down the hill through various terrains (12 days including arrival and departure) is the only thing that makes the expedition difficult.

What is the best time to trek EBC?

March through May is the ideal period to hike to Everest Base Camp; otherwise, October through November is the greatest time to go because of the ideal weather for high altitude trekking. These seasons provide a clear sky and a glimpse of the mountains that are immaculate. Although it is possible to do this walk between February and early September, the months mentioned above are the optimum times to undertake it.

Who are my guide to EBC trek?

Our extremely knowledgeable and committed Everest trek leaders, who have made numerous trips to the Everest base camp over the years, will be leading you. All of our guides are English-speaking local specialists who work full-time jobs rather than being independent contractors. They are quite knowledgeable about the mountain, its residents, their customs, health, cleanliness, and, above all, your safety.

What kind of gear and clothing are required for the EBC trek?

The hike to Everest Base Camp goes from lodge to lodge. Instead of spending the night in a tent, as with the Kilimanjaro climb, you will stay in teahouses or lodges. Even though the experience might not be as cold as it was on Kilimanjaro, you still need to dress appropriately. Please check out our thorough packing lists for the climb to Everest Base Camp.
