Summer -  Mid June, July and August are not the best months to plan the Everest Panorama Trek as the monsoon rain affects the trail and the visibility; however, on request the trek can definitely arranged at this time of the year.

 

How healthy, fit and experienced should I be in order to plan this trek?

Although, the Everest Base Camp Trek is considered moderate, some sections of the trek is quite demanding. Also, some days require 8-9 hours walking. Therefore, this trek in Nepal demands excellent stamina, tough determination and the best health condition.

Useful tips for successful trek

A lot of uphill and downhill climbs are required, before reaching the Everest Base Camp. Some are easier, while the others get tougher with the increase in altitude. However, all the climbs are within the capabilities of any healthy person. The success is determined by how you deal with the altitude. We suggest you to walk at your own pace, slow, yet steady. Do not hurry to reach the destination. If you are tired of walking, take a rest. Stand to rest not sit. Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and scarf. This protects you from the intense sun. If you’ve taken off your layers while walking, wear them while you are in the shadows and protect yourself from the cold.

Extra Money for Personal Expenditure

We suggest you to bring some extra money for extra expenses like drinks, shopping and tipping, as the trip cost does not include the cost of extra expenses.

We also recommend you take expert guidance from your local General Practitioner with expertise in altitude illness and travel medicines.  Please get screened for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, anemia, ulcer disease, cardiovascular disease and lung related problems. Any person with a strong family history or over the age of 40 should make cardiovascular risk assessment. Getting a good dental checkup and identifying medicines that you are allergic to are a must.

Kindly inform us regarding your present health condition, medical situation, preceding illness and the medicines you are taking, so that we can get prepared for emergencies.

Most of the general hospitals and private clinics are available in Kathmandu, therefore, finding a good medical facility isn’t difficult in the capital. However, the Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA) operates aid posts in Pheriche (Khumbu) managed by expatriate physicians, during the peak trekking seasons. With an aim to reduce the deaths among trekkers, it provides free advices to trekkers on altitude sickness, equipments and the condition of the trekking routes.

Try not to bring any valuable belongings like jewelry. Even if you bring, we recommend you to safely store in the deposit boxes in the hotel in Kathmandu. Also bring a lock to secure your luggage.

Remember! Neither the team leader nor the company will be responsible for the security involved during any extra activities not included in the itinerary. 

 

Travel Insurance

Getting travel insurance is a must, if you are looking for the Everest Base Camp Trek.
