Useful info

On 7 days Everest base camp trek, you will be walking with an average of 13 to 15 km a day in average,  Although this does not sound very long, the terrain can often be steep, rocky, slow going and, depending on the season, icy and snowy. You can make your Everest base camp trek easier with proper training and reaching a fitness level capable of trekking with a pack on your back. This trek starts at Lukla just below 3,000 meters, the trek steadily winds its way upwards to Everest Base Camp at 5,364 meters. At 3,000 meters, Lukla is already very high and you will need to take the trek slowly if you are to reach Base Camp safely. It is very important that you seek medical advice prior to trekking at these altitudes and research altitude sickness to make yourself aware of the symptoms and treatments available. Please also note that there is no correlation between fitness, age or gender and altitude sickness – everyone is at risk.
