Everest Base Camp is precisely located at 5364m, which is not a simple trek to do. At this altitude, it becomes a very challenging trip. This makes the Everest base camp trip one of the most amazing and adventurous trips of your lifetime.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
There are a few days that you need to acclimatize during your Everest Base Camp Trek. The first acclimatization will be at Namche which is at 3400m, where you spend 2 nights and the Second acclimatization will be at Dingboche which is at 4400m.
Staying for 2 nights in these places will help you a lot during the trip. If you are used to the mountain then you will be able to reduce all the difficulties you might face during the trip.
