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.
