Hello guys! We are back again with a new blog that reveals the things that you must have known/thought and probably don’t know about Everest Base Camp Trek. If you are planning for Everest trekking this upcoming autumn season then this information will surely help. Let’s roll to the first point:

  1. You must have known that last year was not so good for Nepal. Earthquakes and economic blockades kept pushing tourists away from this beautiful country.

But did you know that Everest base camp trek was possible back then in 2015 and it was and is absolutely safe to join for this exciting once in the lifetime of opportunity to be at the base of the highest mountain on planet earth? The best time is to join now. Nepal was battered but not shattered.

  1. You must have known that the flight to Lukla is quite scary.


But did you know that it's an amazingly delightful mountain flight experience too? And regarding the riskiness, flying around mountains is definitely the risk, but flights are of course flown by professional pilots and it is more rewarding than risky. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to experience mountain flight as well as the most popular trek all at once.

  1. You must have known the name of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa as the first duos to step at Everest summit.

But did you know that these legendary duos are heroes and like godfathers to local people in the Everest region? They have contributed to the making of many infrastructures most of which are named after them. From the airport, you land to the suspension bridge you cross, from school you see to museum you visit. They are true legends of the Everest Himalayas.


  1. You must have known that Namche and Dingboche are the two most common acclimatization points in the standard EBC itinerary.

But do you know what to do during these so-called acclimatization days? At Namche, you have plenty of short day hiking options to Everest view hotel or take a walk around nearby villages like Thame for acclimatization. In the same way, you can go up to Nagarjun Hill at 5100m during your acclimatization day in Dingboche. From both spots, excellent views of Everest and other gigantic Himalayas are seen extraordinarily.

  1. You must have thought that you will see the best views of Everest from EBC.

But did you know that Everest is not clearly seen from Everest base camp? You need to get back to Gorakshep and hike for Kalapathher during the early morning or during the late afternoon to view excellent sunrise and sunset views of Everest respectively.

  1. You must have thought that Everest Base Camp Trek is only for fit ones possessing an excellent fitness physique.

But did you know that kids from 7 years old to elderly up to 70 years old have been there many times? This trek is for the fit guy, but not only for fit guys. It's for all. If plan your trip accordingly, it's possible to be there. For that, you need to have strong willpower, more acclimatization points, and of course, fitness is the key. (Everest Heli tour is another option but it's not trekking though.)

  1. You must have thought that there is no possible way to communicate during the trek.

But did you know that there are many cybercafes, bakeries that offer wifi internet and mobile network coverage is available at EBC? Tip: Get both sim cards (NTC and NCELL) at Kathmandu. Use them in a dual sim phone.

  1. You must have looked at many trekking companies that offer this trek.

But did you know that it is absolutely free to enquire us? We love to share updated factual information with all travel lovers. Contact us. We will make this happen!
