Pick the Right Everest Base Camp Itinerary
The first think you need to do is pick the right itinerary, hence, there is no one size fits all. One key factor to consider is that you need to have as much acclimatization possible in the critical points of the trek. Therefore, you need 3 nights acclimatization in Namche Bazaar on the way up the trail. This is vital to a safe, enjoyable and successful experience in a low oxygen environment higher up the trail. If you fail to acclimatize well lower down, then you run the risk of getting altitude sickness higher up.
The Everest Trek Requires Excellent Physical Preparation
Breathing techniques, low heart rates, excellent hydration and pacing are all extremely important to be safe and successful. You also need excellent physical conditioning to be able to walk up and down hills with a weighted back pack at high altitude. We can help you understand more about this.
