The highest Mountain, Mt.Everest has two base camps opposite the mountain. Base camp is the starting point for all the climbers attempting the summit push to Everest.

South Base Camp -The southern base camp is at an altitude of 5,364 m in the Khumbu region on the Nepal side. Every year, trekkers from all around the world hike up to the South base camp. It is popular as Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the first to reach the summit using this route. It can be reached by trekking for 8-12 days. The trek starts with a short flight to Lukla, passing through the verdant vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, and Sherpa settlements.

North Base Camp - The northern base camp at an altitude of 5,150 m is located in Tibet, China. The trek to the North base camp provides a different experience compared to the South base camp trek as the trek starts from the Tibetan town of Zhangmu, crossing high mountain passes through the Tibetan plateau. It isn’t very popular due to the complex permit system.

Everest base camp serves as the acclimatization point for mountaineers and climbers, aiming for the summit of mighty Mt. Everest.

  • Weather in the mountains is unpredictable so there could be the chance of flight delay or even cancellation. Be calm and kindly do as the trek guide tells you.
  • Provide us with a passport photocopy which we need to book the domestic flight to Lukla and back to Kathmandu.
  • During the busy season, there won’t be a direct flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. You have to drive 4-5 hours early in the morning to Ramechhap to fly to Lukla. There won’t be day or evening flights to Lukla as the high winds in the mountains make the flight difficult to fly.
  • You can buy Wi-Fi cards in Lukla and Namche for USD 25 for 30 days. We can’t ensure a good connection due to bad weather conditions.
  • You have to pay an extra $1 to $3 for battery charging and $3 to $5 for hot showers.

  • Porters carry a maximum of 20 kg so pack your bag lightly with necessary goods at the foremost. Have to hire porters if baggage exceeds the limit.

  • Always remember to stay hydrated on the trails. Drink plenty of water to oxygenize your blood in the body.

EBC Trek Altitude Sickness and Acclimatization

The Everest base camp trek is a high-altitude trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal. You will travel from the elevation of 1350 m, Kathmandu to Lukla at the elevation of 2800 m. The altitude keeps increasing as you ascend following the Everest base camp trek itinerary. So, trekkers are prone to altitude sickness, commonly known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS).

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is an illness caused by a low oxygen level and reduced air pressure at high altitudes. The higher the altitude, the more the chance of altitude sickness. Hence the only solution is to walk slowly and ascend gradually.

If you experience symptoms like headache, dizziness, vomiting, shortness of breath, loss of appetite, and sleep disturbance, you should talk with the guide. To prevent these symptoms of AMS, the Everest base camp trek itinerary included an acclimatization day at high altitudes. Acclimatization helps to adapt to the increasing altitude.

During 14 days Everest base camp trek, you will hike up to Everest View Hotel located at 3,962 m during Namche stay, and hike Mount Nagerjun at the height of 5,100 m in Dingboche. This way you make your body ready for the increasing altitude.

If the above symptoms get severe, the only solution is to descend as fast as possible.

We recommend the following measures to prevent acute mountain sickness.

  • Ascend slowly and steadily. Never rush on the trekking trails.
  • Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated on the trail.
  • Proper acclimatization is the most effective.
  • Avoid the consumption of alcohol, tobacco, and cigarettes while on the trek.
  • Do exercises and light stretching before the start of the trek?
  • A Balanced diet and healthy food should be taken.
