Does everyone make it to Everest base camp? The success rates are lower than you would think for the Everest base camp trek. There is a difference between going to high altitude and living at high altitude. When you go to live and try and sleep above 4,500m/ 16,700 feet it becomes challenging for most people. That’s why you need more acclimatization around the 3,500m/ 11,500 feet mark.
Statistics are showing that about 65% of people make it to Everest base camp 5,364m/ 17,598 feet and even less up Kala phattar 5,545m/ 18,192 feet which really is one of the main reasons for going high into the Khumbu (Everest) region.
The view off Kala phattar 5,545m/ 18,192 feet of Everest, into Tibet, Nuptse and out over the mighty Himalaya’s is truly impressive. So you do need to train and prepare hard for this trek so you can maximize your experience of this amazing place.
