Useful Info

Everest Base Camp Trek difficulty

The most difficult road leads to the most beautiful destination. The Everest Base Camp Trekking trail is world-class. As being the most beautiful trail it is also dangerous and difficult. Ranking wise the trekking is still moderate but for first-timers sometimes it becomes a nightmare. As gaining altitude it becomes difficult to breathe and results in difficulty in walking.

Don’t take this trip too lightly and don’t think it is too hard, just walk consistently and you will reach your destination. With a good fitness level, you can complete this trip easily. Some of the difficulties while doing Everest Base Camp Trekking are categorized below:

Length of the Trek

It is not a small trek to complete this trek you will need around 2 weeks. The distance from the Trek starting at Point Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla is 130 kilometers. Each day you need to hike for 5-6 hours.

Weather in Everest Region

It is difficult to guess the weather in the Everest Region as Everest lies in the Himalayas and the weather in the Himalayas fluctuates too much. This makes the Mountain scarier.

Doing Everest Base Camp during Spring and Autumn will be your best choice as the weather during that time will be good with clear skies, and visible Mountain Peaks. So when choosing a time to do Everest Base choose either Spring or Autumn.

Best Time to do Everest Base Camp Trekking

The Best time to do Everest Base Camp Trekking would be in Spring which starts from March to May and in Autumn which starts from Mid-September to November. You must be careful while choosing Everest Base Camp Trekking. This trek is a high altitude trek so you must consider lots of things regarding doing this trip.

There are lots of trekkers visiting Everest Base Camp at the specific time of Spring and Autumn. Spring is a season of flowers, you will be able to see a thick forest of flowers in the lower altitudes. At this time the environment in Everest Region is more beautiful.

Autumn is the weather with a clear sky and a high chance of seeing mountains every day during your hike. The mountain looks beautiful if the weather is favorable.

The climate in the Everest Region

Mount Everest has an iced cap climate. Above 6500m there is a minus degree throughout the year. It is warmer in the lower altitude around 4000m as sunlight is strong over there.

Everest now is warming up due to global warming which results in the melting of the Khumbu glacier. This is very bad for all of us as it took time for about 50 or more million of years to form the Khumbu glacier and now it’s melting. Because of this Government of Nepal has planned to move Everest Base Camp to a 100-200m Lower Altitude.

After hiking for 5-6 hours each day, you will reach your camp which is Tea House Lodge. Tea House Lodge is the place where you stay for a night. Food and water are all you get in the Tea House. Tea House is not like hotels in cities. It is very simple with a normal common room. Most of the Tea House are made up of stones and wood, so it will be a new experience for you.

Acclimatization During the Everest Base Camp Trekking

High Altitude Trek is difficult. As you gain altitude you might feel difficulty in breathing, so you need to acclimatize during your trip to Everest Base Camp
