Many become able to reach Base Camp whereas some return back from the middle of the trek. Trekking to the Everest region is not an easy task. One must have done regular exercise and must be fit for it.
The trekking route is adventurous because you need to face ups and downs, cross the passes, and walk through the suspension bridges and forest areas. The trek takes you to 5,380 m from where you can observe a clear view of Mt. Everest. Its 130 km round trip starts from Lukla which is the gateway of the Everest region. However, it’s not possible to trek to the base camp directly. That’s why acclimatization days are placed. Trekking continuously causes altitude sickness.130 km is not a long distance to travel. You can trek 5 km per hour because your body needs some rest. And if you feel any symptoms of altitude sickness, don’t hike higher. If possible trek lowers elevation. If you have great stamina, then covering 5 to 7 km per hour is not a big deal.
Hiring a porter will decrease the weight and in fact, will help you a lot. So, think about it and go for it. You need to walk for nine days in a standard 14 days Everest Base Camp Trek. Other days belong to rest, acclimatization, and in Kathmandu. Walking for 15 km per day is not a big problem but the high hills, and the number of ascending and descending causes problems for your feet. Trekking is difficult and almost impossible in the winter season because the route may be blocked by snow and landslide may occur at any time in the snowy area. It depends from person to person for completing the EBC trek. Some achieve it within 11 days, some in 12, some in 10 whereas for some people, even 15 days may not be sufficient to complete the trek. It depends upon your physical fitness. You should always keep a positive mentality while trekking to a higher elevation.
The food you eat and the place you sleep also play a vital role in the completion of trekking to Everest Base Camp. As the distance increases, the prices for these items also increase. And make sure not to eat any non-veg items at higher elevations because they are all rotten. You need to carry warm and thick clothes and take sound sleep in the tea houses.
