Budget Everest Base Camp Trek difficulties

Everest base camp trek goes up to Kala Patthar 5645 Meters. Most of the trekkers start their trek in Lukla 2860 Meters and some may feel various difficulties due to the elevations as well as mountain atmospheres. It happens to very few people so they might get Altitude mountain sickness anywhere around the Everest base camp trek route.

Trekkers need to trek 6-7 hours each day on the mountain terrains so some of you may find it difficult at the beginning but 2-3 days later it becomes normal. To minimize this risk of Altitude mountain sickness we have put 2 days for acclimatization in Namche and Lobuche. Acclimatization allows them to adjust to the local environment so they can be very fit for the trek. We suggest you drink enough water and fluid as well.


Budget Everest Base Camp Trek season

There are two best seasons for the Everest base camp trek. The first and the best is the Autumn season which is also known as the trekking season in Nepal. In this season trekkers from all around the world come to Nepal. Temperatures and weather for the trek are absolutely stunning all over Nepal. Treks like Everest base camp, Annapurna circuit, and Manaslu get a lot of tourists this season.

Spring is the second-best season after Autumn in Nepal. It is also the climbing season so a lot of the climbers climb Mt Everest and other higher peaks. Trekking to Everest base camp is very beautiful this time because the days are sunny and the temperatures are also quite good. You would see the forest green and full of rhododendron flowers. Winter and Summer seasons are not good to trek because the weather is not good and there is more chance of rainfalls and snowfalls.
