Additional Info

Everest Base Camp Trek terrain & difficulty 

Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek with a fair share of challenging steep ascends and descends. Mind you, descents are as difficult as ascents, so don't take it lightly and be careful on the track. You will be walking 6 to 7 hours a day at a minimum, therefore you have to be in good health and fitness. 

The trail winds through dense forests and the region get remote with an increase in elevation. You have to walk in thin air before touching EBC, which can get challenging for some trekkers. Along with that, you always have to look for altitude sickness and make sure you do not get any symptoms. You can learn more about altitude sickness here.

To enjoy the trek to its fullest, you have to trek in spring and autumn. Spring (March to April) and autumn (October to November) is the best time of the year to go on the Everest Base Camp Trekking. These seasons have moderate climates and stable weather. 

The trail sees hundreds of flowers bloom in the spring. And autumn adds the warmth of festivity to the environment as the Nepalese celebrate their biggest festivals in this season.
