How difficult/Challenging this trek is? Does it fit to any trekkers?

This trek is a kind of moderate level of trekking. The trek has rolling flats and steep ascends but it is generally manageable for the trekker of any ages with little trekking experience. The trekker has to be physically fit, though. However, it is advised to have some training before planning this EBC Trip in order to adjust with high altitude sickness. There is no exact age limit for this trekking as seniors and minimum age people can still do it but it is suggested to be aware of the route map, itinerary, difficulty, altitude, action challenges, fitness, medications, requirements and any other advice from the blogs or news. Check out our Pre-Departure information, Trekking information  while planning this EBC Trip  in Nepal.

How far or long does it take to reach to the EBC?

The total Everest Base Camp Trek Distance  is 62 Kilometers or 38.58 miles. It will take 7 to 8 days to reach Everest Base Camp (EBC) and 3-4 days to return to Lukla. Each day you will be walking less than 8-10 Kilometers, the high you trek, your speed of walking will get slower. Normally, trek to EBC is slower because of high altitude and possibility of AMS, you will need to adjust to the new altitudes. It is suggested to have some spare days in Kathmandu and start the trek right after a day of your arrival because of flight cancellations due to unfavorable weather conditions.

It is wise to follow 12-Day standard EBC Trekking itinerary (To and From Lukla) to avoid AMS and have smooth trekking experience.

Best Seasons for Everest Base Camp Trek?

Everest Base Camp Trek 12 Days best times/months/seasons are  Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November). EBC Trekking in other months can be the hardest because of  heavy snowfall in Winter (December, January, February) and heavy rains in Summer (June, July, August).

Do I need travel Insurance? How likely is altitude sickness?

Of course! it’s RECOMMENDED to purchase travel insurance and make sure it covers emergency evacuation at high altitude. Altitude sickness can attack anyone no matter your fitness level is good, the solution is to take time and walk slow. If you feel AMS, it is suggested to go to the lower elevation.

Does the EBC Trip cost same as foreigners to the Indian and Nepalese Citizens?

Well, the trekking cost (accommodation, guide/porter fees, food) remains the same. However, due to flight fare and permit fees (less than the other citizens), it will cost cheaper than foreign citizens. The cost will be less by nearly 200 US dollar than the standard quotation mentioned on the package. Make us an inquiry for the updated cost for Indian and Nepalese trekkers.
