FAQ

How is the weather in Everest Base Camp and what is the best time for this trek?

Normally, the spring and autumn seasons are more appropriate to have our trekking. In these seasons the weather is less likely to get worse. The humidity is low and the probability of rain is also quite low. And at these seasons the temperature of the atmosphere does not get extreme which makes it easier to trek. 

 In winter we can have foggy weather but on the clear days, the snow at those mountains thicken some extra inches which boosts the beauty of the Himalayas to the next level complemented by the crystal clear sky. However, the temperature at this season drops low making it more difficult to climb up.

 During the summer the mountains face heavy rainfall most of the days, it is the least appropriate season to have the flight. However, we can have a helicopter tour on clear days. One thing we need to take into account is, during summer weather can turn way around within a matter of seconds.

Even though the autumn and spring are the best seasons for Everest Base Camp Trekking, we still can conduct our journey at other seasons as well. We plan the trekking according to the weather forecast of the Meteorological Forecasting Division prioritizing your safety. 

The trail might become a bit crowded as too many people go for trekking in peak seasons. You can decide the season you want to go trekking according to your preference. 
 

How difficult is the trek and how should I get prepared for it?

The difficulty of Everest Base Camp trekking is strenuous. You have to walk almost 7/8 hours a day in temperatures as low as -15 degrees Celsius. In addition, the Strenuous trips are much longer than the Moderate Plus treks. The strenuous trips are on average 13-20 days in length. Trekking in such cold climatic conditions and for such a long period of time requires you to have a good level of physical fitness. Besides, you will also need mental toughness to complete these trips.

Suggested Preparation

  • Cardio exercises include running, cycling, jogging, push-ups, and pull-ups for about 4-5 days a week for 3 months before your trip will begin.
  • You should also be involved in developing core strength. and muscle endurance through weight training.
  • Hiking in the hills in different weather conditions will be a good preparation for this trip.
  • If you have access, kayaking will also be a very good way to develop the strength and endurance required for this trip.
     

How many hours should I walk each day?

As altitude sickness is a major risk while having Everest Base Camp Trek, you should not rush while trekking. You need to make your trek slow and steady to get to the Everest Base Camp without getting exhausted. On average, you can walk 6-7 hours a day. However, the higher you go the more difficult it becomes to walk. While returning, you can return to Lukla jus in three days as walking downward is relatively easy and there is no risk of AMS.

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews

Getting to Everest Base Camp doesn't always have to be about giving up your normal way of life, not after Sublime Trails' Luxury Everest Base Camp trek. Obviously you have to trek for several hours a day but you after a long day, you can rest in luxurious accommodation and enjoy hot beverages and nice food. But, as you walk further, the places you will stay will be more simple but more than you would expect in such a rural area. I didn't think it was possible because I had already been to ABC and it was so hard for me to stay at tea houses, though the people were kind and did whatever they could. Well done guys, Thanks for the awesome trip.
