Requirement of Travel Insurance for EBC Trek

There is a minimal amount of danger of altitude sickness in the Everest Base Camp Trek. You may suffer from mild altitude sickness. As this trip is around dense forests, there are chances of accidents, illnesses, floods, landslides, or abrupt climatic changes. So, you have to come with appropriate guidance and you must have travel insurance as well. 

The travel insurance must cover medical and emergency extradition, as well as high-altitude helicopter rescue and evacuation costs. When you are ready to book a trip with us, please kindly submit us comprehensive insurance paperwork. In an emergency, we will quickly rescue you by using your insurance.

How can I prevent altitude sickness during the Everest Base Camp Trek?

Altitude sickness can be prevented in many ways. First of all, let's talk about altitude sickness, which is often known as acute mountain sickness (AMS). It is an illness that occurs when people are not adequately acclimatized to high altitude. The following steps should be taken to minimize altitude sickness at high altitudes:

  • Many trekkers hiked throughout the day to complete the trial for that day. So, they exhaust themselves by walking too much, which should be done correctly by taking a rest at a certain distance.
  • Return to a lower altitude area, which will not only prevent altitude sickness but also aid the body in recovering exhausted muscles and adjusting to the shifting oxygen levels after hiking at high altitude in the daytime. 
  • Avoid consuming alcohol, smoking cigarettes, or tobacco during the hike, as it dehydrates you, which results in tiredness and fatigue, followed by altitude sickness. 
  • Increase your intake of warm water every half an hour of walking. It would help if you drank 500 mL of water every half hour.
  • Even though you lose your appetite, avoid walking on an empty stomach. Try to increase the liquid food intake, which helps to stop altitude sickness.
  • Always be ready for a hike and keep a positive mindset. 
  • Make yourself busy talking with your fellow trekkers and guide them to avoid dwelling on your bad thoughts.

The following things should be included in the packing list for the Everest Base camp Trek:

 What are the alternative routes to Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp trek starts after landing at Lukla Airport. Lukla Airport also known as Tenzing Hillary Airport, is one of the most dangerous airports in the world because of its small runways and unpredictable weather conditions. It is located at an altitude of 2,840 m above sea level. Due to frequent flight cancellations and delays, you can take an alternative route to reach Lukla. They are: 

A. From Jiri

 The popular alternative route to reach Lukla is via trekking from Jiri. You will drive for 7 hours to reach Jiri from Kathmandu in a private jeep or bus. Jiri is a small town located in the Eastern part of Nepal. Then, you will start hiking to the Khumbu region while exploring the mesmerizing scenery and attractive villages of the Himalayas. You will hike along the Classis Everest Base Camp trail at Phakding via popular places like Namche Bazaar, Debuche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep. It will be a longer trek where you will get an opportunity to be a part of local communities, explore rare vegetation and wildlife, view the beauty of towering peaks, and so on. 

B. From Salleri

Salleri is an alternative route to reach Everest Base Camp Trek. It takes 8 to 9 hours to reach Salleri from Kathmandu via public vehicle. You will cross beautiful towns like Taksindo, Paiya, and Surke on the way to Salleri. It adds more trekking days with an off-the-beaten-path, which makes this route the "Best trek for Adventure Travelers.” While crossing several rivers, suspension bridges, forests, and exotic terrain, you will reach Okhaldhunga, Nepal, via the Sunkoshi River. Then, you will hike to Taksindo, Kharikhola, and finally arrive in Ringmo Village. You will reach Everest Base Camp within 18 to 19 days while hiking over a distance of 130 km. Then, you will cross Paiya, Surke, and Phakding to reach Namche Bazaar, a gateway to the Everest Base Camp trek. 

C. Fly from Manthali Airport

Manthali Airport is located in Ramechhap district. The total distance between Kathmandu and Ramechhap is 146 km. If we don’t find a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu, then we choose this option as this airport operates daily flights. It will take only 17 minutes to reach Lukla from Manthali airport. Manthali Airport handles flights to Lukla mainly so this may cause traffic and result in flight delays. Ramechhap is a 7- to 8-hour drive from Kathmandu via private bus, jeep, or car. 

Is a solo trip possible for Everest Base Camp Trek?

Solo trekking on the Everest Base Camp Trek is possible, but we do not recommend it. The EBC trek will be difficult to navigate after you reach Namche Bazaar. The less busy and diverse path will make you lost in the wild. The number of villages becomes smaller as you trek higher, and you might feel helpless if anything comes along the way.

There are high chances of landslides and soil erosion at higher altitudes, so you won’t have any idea about this disaster-prone area. Stay cautious. If you travel in a group or with a guide, you will be safe from these disasters and other accidents. During the Everest Base Camp trek, you may face altitude sickness, normal injuries, and other problems. If you hike with a local guide and in a group, there will be people to help you and guide you safely until you reach the destination.

Trekking with a guide will be helpful; you will know the necessary information regarding trekking routes, mountains, local communities, languages, cultures, and practices. If you have done the Everest Base Camp trek before and have an idea about all these problems, then you can do a solo trek. 

How are the facilities of Internet, Electricity & Mobile Network?

In most of the teahouses, you can find the electricity generated from the solar panels. Charging facilities may be available; it is better to carry a power bank for your convenience. In terms of internet facilities, you can get internet facilities, just like charging facilities, in the lower altitudes. However, it may be difficult to find reliable internet facilities. For telephone facilities, buy a local sim card before going for the Everest base camp trek. Just keep in mind that the local SIM card may not work in some places.

How cold is it at Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp trek is normally cold. You will experience warm and slightly moderate temperatures in the lower region. Then, you will start feeling cold during the second half of the trek, with freezing temperatures on the mountain plateau. The temperature ranges from 1 to -15 degrees Celsius on the base camp. Make sure to bring base layers, mid-layers, and a down jacket for hiking. Near the base camp, you will experience icy winds, so bring all the necessary coverings to avoid catching a cold. 

How much does it cost for an Everest Base camp trek?

The Everest Base Camp trek is a journey that takes around 10 to 14 days normally. The cost for the Everest Base Camp trek ranges between $1500 to $3000. This cost includes all domestic flights, trekking permits, full board meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), a professional guide, porter, and accommodation, followed by a certificate of journey completion.

If you are traveling in a group with fixed dates, then there will be a discount depending on the size of your group. Traveling in a group comes on the budget side, while private and tailored treks are more expensive. The luxury trek will be more expensive due to terms of service and upgrades in accommodation.

Tips You Should Follow as a Beginner for the Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest Base Camp trek is the most difficult if you are a beginner. Even though it is difficult, it can be completed under proper guidance and with a positive attitude. You should follow the 12 tips for trekking in the Everest Base Camp region as a beginner are given below:

  • Train ahead of time: The trek to Everest Base Camp is open for all ages with physical abilities. The person's physical condition adds a plus point to the completion of the hike. The average person can do the hike and you shouldn’t have to be a triathlete for the trek. You must have endurance capability along with good physical shape. So, to get in good shape, you must train ahead of trekking time. 
  • Trek via Phortse: The trek to Everest Base Camp consists of two routes. One route is via Tengboche to Everest Base Camp, which is the classic. Another is via Lukla to Phortse Thanga and finally into the trail of the Everest Base Camp. It is the second way to go to the Everest Base Camp, and it is a very time-consuming route along with a beautiful, lesser-traveled trail. You can explore the beautiful scenery, which will take you far away from the crowded route of the classic trail. The memorable landscape of the trek will surely make you visit the Tengboche Monastery on the way back. 
  • Break in Your Shoes beforehand: The next thing you should be prepared for is your new trekking shoes before hiking. Make sure to wear it for more than two weeks so that it will not pinch, rub, or stress your feet during the trek. We all know that new shoes cause blisters, chafed skin, and aching feet, which will cause some tension in the trek, so wearing them beforehand will minimize the problem. You can also wear it in your town and the best breaking-in happens off pavement.
  • Stay within the luggage limits. You have to stay within the luggage limits. You can only bring 10 kg of weight for the main pack on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. You can bring a carry-on of 5 kg but if you bring more weight, you have to pay an extra charge. It will also create difficulty while trekking and you have to remove everything to find one item. Being overweight can cause tiredness and fatigue to you as well as your partner, which will make you late.
  • Use a professional trekking company: You can hike in the Everest Base camp region by hiring a personal guide or porter and doing it on your own and via a professional trekking company. The best option is to do it via a trekking company. They will help you organize your things and make your trek memorable. This aids in flight delay navigation, emergency services, communication challenges, and so on. You will explore the culture and values of the local guide while trekking via a trekking company like ours, Mystic Adventure Holidays. You will get a variety of benefits by traveling with us. 
  • Read the terms of service: The terms of service provide you with general guidelines on how the trekking company handles emergencies during the trek. The trekking company will cover everything you need to know regarding the unfortunate things that could happen in the journey and how they overcome and deal with the problem. Our trekking company will assure you that we will do everything to make you safe no matter what happens and all of our treks have been successful until now. 
  • Prepare for flight delays: The flight from Lukla to Kathmandu or Kathmandu to Lukla has a high chance of delays. As we know, the climatic conditions of mountains are very uncertain, and they are vulnerable, so flight delays occur most of the time. So, lack of good visibility and weather changes are the reasons behind the changes we all know that Nepal is a developing country and sometimes there is a loss of communication at the airport, which causes flight delays. Only the lucky ones do not have to experience it and get a flight immediately. You have to have some energy bars, books, and magazines to pass the time in the case of flight delays. 
  • Bring Playing cards and books: During your trek, you can spend your free time in a hotel by reading books and playing cards. Make sure to have some with them, as the internet service is slow in the tea houses. If you want to stay away from technology, playing cards will help you.
  • Prepare for cold and rain. The Everest base camp trek is full of challenges and obstacles. You have to deal with adverse climatic conditions as well. The climatic conditions in the lower altitude are warm throughout the day. So, you have to wear T-shirts and shorts in the daytime and the temperature begins to fall at high altitudes and night. Make sure to bring a warm hat and thermals to stay warm. Bring a thermos to fill with warm water for chilly temperatures. The weather at the high altitude is changeable every time so bring a poncho. 
  • Know your headache: The Everest Base camp trekker suffers from headaches, which are considered the first signs of altitude sickness. Sometimes headaches are minor and you shouldn't worry about them, but you have to mention every headache to your travel guide. If you began experiencing adverse headaches, it might be the symptoms of altitude sickness. 
  • Make sure to stay hydrated and eat enough. You have to walk throughout the day so make sure to stay hydrated all day. You have to pay $1 for one one-liter water bottle and the price of water increases as you head upwards. Buying water bottles will produce litter and to save money, make sure to bring chlorine or iodine tablets. There is availability of flowing stream water and you can drink it by chlorinating it. There is the availability of tea houses and lodges at every resting point. So, you can order the meal of your choice in the lodge. We provide three meals a day on the trek and a hot drink with each meal. You can eat traditional Dal Bhat, which comes with dishes like rice, dal, a vegetable, papad (fried bread), and pickles. During the trek, make sure to avoid meat and follow the vegetarian option. Eating eggs and yak cheese will replace the protein in the meat on the trip.
  • Get enough sleep: As the trekking in the Everest base camp is quite long, you have to walk throughout the day. So, you have to have a good night's sleep; otherwise, your next day will be ruined. The teahouse and lodges are crowded and the thin walls of bedrooms easily enter the noise. So, if you have trouble sleeping in a noisy environment, then bring some foam earplugs for a good night’s sleep. Bring a sleeping bag and thermals for insulation and a -20 degree Celsius sleeping bag is highly recommended.
