The Sagarmatha National Park, located in the Everest region, is also another highlight of the trip. This protected area is home to some of Nepal’s most exotic, rare, and endangered flora and fauna. The top attractions of Sagarmatha National Park are the animals, which include the Snow Leopard, Red Panda, Musk Deer, Himalayan Tahr, Himalayan Goral, Himalayan Wolf, and Himalayan Marmot.

The sunrise or sunset view from the Kalapatthar is one of the best-capturing sights in the Khumbu region. Kalapatthar provides a 360-degree view of the Himalayan range of Nepal, which is not to be missed. The Khumbu Glacier, which is the biggest glacier in the Khumbu region, can also be seen from Kalapatthar. As the trek is carried out easily and comfortably, trekkers of moderate fitness can do this trek.

The trek mostly begins early in the morning with breakfast at the accommodation. Then the journey continues by gradually moving to a higher altitude. The maximum elevation reached in the Easy Everest Base Camp trek is 5,545 meters. Trekkers will walk across rugged terrain and steep uphill while passing through waterfalls, rivers, suspension bridges, and glaciers. Lunch is served along the route, while dinner is mostly at the place of rest.

Who can do the Everest Base Camp trek?

16-day Everest Base Camp Easy and comfortable trekking is considered a moderately difficult trek. Any person with a moderate fitness level can head to the Everest Base Camp without difficulty. However, engaging in cardiovascular exercises like cycling, running, jogging, swimming, and walking can greatly enhance the experience. It is recommended to make minor changes in the daily habits of those who wish to visit Everest Base Camp. The changes can include omitting lifts, taking the stairs, and walking for at least 45 minutes for a month before starting the trek.

As mentioned, the Everest base camp trek is an easy and comfortable journey. Individuals who intend to walk alone, with friends, or in groups with families and children can accomplish this. The Everest Base Camp journey will not disappoint anyone who wants to lie in the lap of the Himalayas or get close to nature.

Similarly, trekkers with prior experience in the mountain region can easily complete this trek. Those who are familiar with high-altitude trekking and have already gained experience in acclimatization can do this trek with minimum difficulty. However, those who are completely new to trekking might feel this trip is challenging. Walking at higher altitudes needs proper adaptation to the decreased oxygen level, so proper guidance is required to carry out the acclimatization procedure. We at Nature Excursion Pvt. Ltd. have guides who are skilled at handling beginners as well as experienced trekkers, followed by proper acclimatization techniques.

What is the necessary preparation before the trek?

For Everest Base Camp's easy trek, meticulous planning is necessary. Physical and mental fitness are a must, even though Everest base camp trekking is considered a moderately difficult trek. Hiking the rugged terrain along the glaciers with steep uphill slopes can be a challenge. So effective planning is necessary. Some of the following points encompass the requirement for preparation before heading towards the base camp of Everest.

Physical fitness: A moderate fitness level should be maintained one month before the trek. It is necessary to engage in cardiovascular exercises like jogging, cycling, running, and swimming so that the journey will be relatively easy. Some aerobic workouts and walking for at least an hour per day can enhance the ability to walk on steep slopes. Strong legs are the key to easy trekking, so practice exercise focusing on the leg muscles. Similarly, omitting lifts, preferring stairs, and researching the terrain can help get insights into what to encounter during the Everest base camp route.

Mental fitness: besides physical fitness, one needs to be mentally prepared to embark on the base camp. As the region is at a high altitude, hiking in the isolated region can put pressure on the mentality. Irritation during the trek is a common problem, so it is necessary to keep an open mind and adjust to minor changes. Accommodation options, food, poor communication, and electricity facilities can be a big deal. Besides this, the challenging trekking routes and lack of communication skills can bother any individual. So, it is necessary to do some research about the landscapes, terrains, and local communities of the area before going on the trek. This will make any individual familiar with how the region is and what can be expected.

Considering altitude, the highest altitude reached in the Everest Base Camp is Kalapatthar, 5545 meters. So, acclimatization is an important factor in counteracting acute mountain sickness or altitude sickness. Take the steps cautiously without rushing to reach the top. Smaller steps, while considering the energy level and elevation gain, are a must. During the acclimatization day, be sure to gain a significant amount of elevation and return to adapt to the high altitude and decreased oxygen level.

What do you need to pack for the trek?

Packing the equipment, gear, and all the necessary belongings is necessary for a comfortable Everest base camp trek. Be sure to pack all your belongings according to your needs. Packing heavy or light can greatly affect the trekking experience. Overpacking can cause difficulty while walking and discomfort while packing. You can miss out on any essential materials that are of utmost importance. So, it is necessary to follow the packing list prepared by Nature Excursion Pvt. Ltd. to not miss any of the essential kinds of stuff for trekking.

Similarly, good-quality trekking boots, sleeping bags, down jackets, and trekking bags should be packed without missing anything. Be sure to carry water bottles that can carry at least 4-5 liters of water, which will keep you hydrated on the journey. Similarly, dry fruits, energy bars, or other foods can also be kept as a source of energy for the trip. Any individual who has to take medicine should bring a prescription, as similar medicines might not be available. For ladies and women, be sure to carry extra sanitary pads.

There are fewer travelers at the beginning of the season, and there are plenty of teahouses and guesthouses available. Most of the snow in the region melts, giving it a vibrant feel, which provides a comfortable walking experience. Similarly, the skies are clear, and the views of mountain ranges and peaks come alive. The days are longer, with shorter nights, giving a longer duration for trekking. The vegetation along the route is filled with blooming rhododendrons, and the alpines feel alive, marking excellent scenery.

The temperature ranges from 7 to 15 degrees Celsius.

Everest Base Camp is a comfortable trek in the autumn.

The autumn season in Nepal lasts from September to November and is the most favored season for trekking towards Everest Base Camp. As the monsoon is just over, marking the beginning of the fall, the area is filled with clean air and a humid atmosphere. The skies are clear, with undisturbed visibility of the surrounding peaks and mountains. The nighttime is a bit cold, but the daytime is warm enough to provide a comfortable and easy trekking experience. The faded color of the vegetation and landscapes adds extra beauty to the region against the backdrop of the mighty Everest.

The temperature ranges from 4 to 16 degrees Celsius.

Everest Base Camp is an easy trek in the winter.

Winter, which lasts from December to February, is not a recommended season for trekking at Everest Base Camp for beginners. However, trekking in winter is possible for expert trekkers and mountaineers who like to face challenges with an extra pump of adrenaline. The climatic conditions are severe, with trails covered with deep snow layers. The visibility of the mountains can be obstructed, but with proper planning and management, Nature Excursion Pvt. Ltd. can encounter this adventure.

Extra layers of thermals and proper trekking gear are required with meticulous logistic preparation. Acclimatization is a crucial factor while trekking in the winter season, as the weather can be unpredictable.

The temperature ranges from -4 to -17 degrees Celsius.

Everest Base Camp is a comfortable trek in the summer or monsoon.

The monsoon in Nepal starts in June and lasts until September. Due to the frequent rain and strong winds that characterize the summer, hiking trails can become dangerous. Thus, the summer season is also considered a challenging time for Everest Base Camp trekking. The visibility of the mountains can get obstructed due to heavy rainfall, but when the rain stops, it provides a clear view of the mountains. There are also issues with leeches and insects during summer trekking at Everest Base Camp. So, it is necessary to pack extra, including wind and waterproof jackets, insect repellents, and an extra pair of clothes.

The temperature ranges from 5 to 18 degrees Celsius at night and day, respectively.

What are the accommodation options during easy and comfortable Everest Base Camp trekking?

As the journey begins in Kathmandu, the accommodation facilities during your stay there are top-notch. We have hotels that are marked 3 stars to make sure your stay in Kathmandu is luxurious and comfortable. Similarly, during the trekking route to Everest Base Camp, our main accommodation will be lodging. Lodges offer more comfortable lodging options where two people can share a single room. For those who are intending to travel solo, we can book single rooms too. The rooms in lodges have a clean blanket and pillows with comfortable mattresses. There is also the option of attached bathrooms with hot showers.

*Note: A single room is only available if you request it at the time of booking. Likewise, the cost also differs.

There are also options for accommodations in teahouses, which are considered the cheapest and most basic. Teahouse options are best recommended for trekkers who are on a budget. Teahouses provide basic amenities like beds and blankets, and a single room has two beds suitable for a maximum of two trekkers. The bathrooms in teahouses are mainly shared with the availability of buckets, geysers, or solar showers.

Another option for accommodation is camping, which can be done only at higher altitudes. Camping is a must-do option for mountaineers who wish to summit the majestic Everest. Our guides and porters will carry all the essential items required for camping, including the tents and accessories. However, camping in Everest requires prior notice as necessary logistics need to be handled.

Similarly, it is necessary to understand that as we move past Dingboche, the number of lodges decreases with the availability of teahouses only. So, keep an open mind and expect small rooms with minimal decorations and shared washrooms. Charging can cost extra; however, communication and Wi-Fi will be negligible. Most of the teahouses accept only cash, so be sure to carry some Nepalese rupees with you too.

What Meals on Easy and Comfortable Everest Base Camp Trekking?

After a long day's walk, trekkers will settle into an accommodation and get ready for supper, which will have a heavenly feel. Good food will set a good mood and help to energize fellow trekkers to walk the following day. The Everest region luckily offers decent meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Highly populated villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, and Tengboche offer a variety of food options on the menu.

Dalbhat, which is the main staple food of the Nepalese, is a combination of rice and lentil soup with a mixture of vegetables. Other options are momo, noodles, thenduk, Tibetian bread, thukpa, shyakpa, eggs, fries, varieties of soup, and dhido. As previously mentioned, big villages have options for pizza, burgers, and bakery items.

There are beverage options ranging from alcoholic to non-alcoholic drinks. However, it is recommended to not drink any alcoholic drinks, and for non-alcoholic drinks, coffee should be limited as it causes dehydration. It is necessary to choose wisely what to eat. Any illness in the stomach can result in a devastating experience. It is also recommended to omit meat while ascending the Everest Base Camp map.

Note: Dal Bhat is the holy grail. It is delicious and costs little. You will be full for the day, and it has a lot of nutritional value.

What are the permits and fees for easy and comfortable Everest Base Camp trekking?

For residents of numerous countries, Nepal offers special tourist visa arrangements. You should check your visa status to verify if you are on the on-arrival visa list for your country. If you are not, contact the Nepalese Embassy or Consulate in your country to obtain a Nepali visa. Similarly, if you qualify, you can obtain an on-arrival visa at any of Nepal's entrance points, including the Tribhuvan International Airport.

Likewise, for Everest Base Camp trekking, you will need to obtain various documents and permits to enter the Khumbu region. As the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, is located here, a permit to enter the national park is also necessary. You will need to carry these permits at all costs because there are several checkpoints and permit points where officials check these documents. The documents and permits required to enter the Sagarmatha region are as follows:

Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit

This is one of the most important permits required for trekkers embarking on Everest Base Camp. The base camp is in the part of Sagarmatha National Park, which is marked as a restricted and protected area by the government of Nepal for the protection of exotic flora and fauna found here. So, to enter the national park, a Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit is required.

This permit can be obtained from the Nepal Tourism Board located at Kamaladi Kathmandu; if not, it is also made available in Monjo village, which is en route to Everest Base Camp. The cost of this permit is NRs 3000 for foreigners and NRs 1000 for SAARC nationals. As for the Nepalese trekkers, the cost of the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit is only NRs 100 per person, and those below 10 years of age can enter freely.

Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Municipality Entry Permit

The Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Municipality Entry Permit is the replacement for the Trekkers Information Management System (TIMS) card. As a result, the local government is responsible for collecting the permit fee directly. The cost of the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Municipality Entry Permit is Rs. 2000 per person, and it is free for children under the age of ten. Similarly, this permit can be obtained from the Tourism Board of Nepal, located in Kathmandu or at Monjo, which is en route to Everest Base Camp.

Other documents, like a passport, a valid visa from Nepal, and two copies of a passport-size photo, should also be kept to safeguard against any cases.
