Does Everyone Make it to Everest base camp

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. 

Does Everyone Make to Everest

About 65% of people make it to Everest base camp 5,364m/ 17,598 feet and back to Lukla. The number of people helicoptering out of Gorak Shep shows the challenge of trekking to Everest. Even less people make the hike up Kala Patthar 5,645m/ 18,520 feet. Hiking Kala Patthar should be one of the main reasons for going high into the Khumbu (Everest) region.
