Important Information About Trekking to Everest Base Camp

Here is some important information about trekking to Everest Base Camp and why you should not under estimate this trek. Ian has climbed Everest to the top and has led 35+ treks to Everest Base Camp. Over the years, we have developed an itinerary for our Everest Base camp Treks that gives our clients the best chance of safely and successfully reaching their goal.  Having three nights at the critical acclimatization stage of Namche Bazaar is just one way that our itinerary is far superior than others.

There are a few things to need to think about when you are preparing for your Everest Base Camp Trek. Making sure that you have the right itinerary, team, and also the right training and preparations are all essential to your success.  The best thing you can do is CONTACT US we have all the information you need to make this journey safely.

Pick the Right Itinerary

Going to high altitude is a challenging process, and it can not be taken lightly.  You need to make sure that you have the right acclimatization process in order to safely continue up the trail.  All research on high altitude suggests that you need to spend more time at the critical acclimatization point, lower on the trail, to be able to move higher safely.  On the Everest Base Camp Trek, this point is at Namche Bazaar at 3,450m/ 11,320 feet.  Because of this, we spend three nights here on our way up the trail!  Don’t be fooled by an itinerary with only one or even two nights at this critical height.
