Is Everest base camp hard?

Everest Base Camp is the most popular trekking destination and often considered as one of the toughest trekking destinations. However, it is not so tough to trek to Everest Base Camp. The factors making it a tough trekking destination is because of its high altitude, no access to roads and only flight to Lukla Airport which is one of the dangerous airports in the world. However, if you love trekking and can walk up to 7 hours on an unfavorable terrain than you can easily trek to Everest Base Camp.

Everest Base Camp has the most strenuous trials which makes this trek difficult. To do this trek one must be physically fit and must be able to walk for about 6-7 hours in an unfamiliar terrain. Also there may be numbers of obstacle you may face while doing this trek like delay in Lukla Flight due to unfavorable weather condition, altitude sickness and others.  Not everyone is capable enough to do Everest Base Camp trek but every trekkers has once dreamed of it.

There are also several ways of making this trek easier. Here’s how,

Step one: Fly to Lukla via Chartered Helicopter.

The Lukla Airport is considered as one of the most dangerous airstrips in the world because of its short airstrips and unpredictable weather. And because of the frequent change in the weather the flight to Lukla often gets delayed for several days or cancelled. To avoid the risk of getting the flights cancelled and have safe flight to Lukla you can fly via chartered helicopter from Kathmandu. You can fly via charted helicopter even in case of bad weather and is safer because it can be landed anywhere.

Step two: Lukla to Gorakshep via Chartered Helicopter.

If you want to avoid trekking for several days then this can be the best option for you. The chartered helicopter can drop you to Gorakshep which is the final stop while trekking to Everest Base Camp. You can skip a lot of hours of strenuous trek and also can have the experience of trekking back to Lukla directly after visiting Everest Base Camp. This is the best idea to save several days with an experience of trekking to Everest Base Camp.

Step Three: Gorakshep to Lukla via Chartered Helicopter.

The several days trek can be more tiring and you may not have much energy after several days trek to EBC. Hence, after visiting Everest Base Camp you can directly fly back to Lukla via Chartered Helicopter. After reaching to Lukla you can directly fly to Kathmandu from Lukla aeroplane via flight. It also saves your budget.

 

Step Four:  Fly to Kathmandu directly from Gorakshep via Chartered Helicopter.

Since the Lukla flight gets delayed frequently you may have to wait for several days in Lukla in case of bad weather. To avoid the risk of getting the flights delayed and skip trekking back, you can directly fly to Kathmandu from Lukla. It will save a lot of your effort and energy.

 Step Five: One day tour to EBC via Chartered Helicopter.

If you eagerly want to see the Everest Base Camp but without trekking then, this is the perfect option for you. The one day tour takes you directly to the Everest Base Camp in a chartered helicopter. You will spend few minutes in Everest Base Camp and fly back to Kathmandu.  In this one day tour you cannot just reach the Everest Base Camp, but also get to explore the beauty of Khumbu or Everest region as well.

FLYING TO LUKLA – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Flying to Lukla.

The most adventures journey of the world has an adventurous gateway. Almost all of the treks in Everest Region begin with an exciting flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing-Hillary airport Lukla. The flight is short, scenic, exciting and adventurous. On the other hand this short flight takes your breath out, flying out from the TIA it directly lands on a small airstrip over an isolated mountain valley tucked in between the mountains of Khumbu region also known as world’s most dangerous airport in just 40 minutes approx.

Since, there is no road transportation; the Flight to Lukla is the sole vehicle approach to Everest Region. The market here can be possible only by Flight or several days of walking. Thus, Lukla Airport is a hub for all the local people and trekkers in the Everest Region.

Tenzing-Hillary Airport Lukla

Tenzing-Hillary Airport Lukla or Lukla Airport stands at an altitude of 2845m above the sea level. The Route to Lukla airport from Kathmandu is short but it is often it is interrupted by unpredictable weather conditions which causes delay and flight cancellation. The flight to Lukla offers you with most amazing view of the mountains and picturesque landscapes of Everest Region passing over interconnected mountain ranges of Nepal.

History of Tenzing-Hillary Airport Lukla

The Tenzing Hillary Airport was called Lukla Airport until 2008. The airport was meant to be built in the flat farmlands but the villagers refused to give their lands and thus, the airport was built at its current position in 1964 under the supervision of Edmund Hillary. Hillary bought the land from local Sherpa’s for US$2,650 and involved them in building the facilities. Because Hillary was unhappy with the runway’s soil resistance, and he made a solution was to buy local liquor for the Sherpa’s and asked them to perform a foot-stomping dance to flatten the land that served as the runway. The runway was not paved until 2001.  The airport was renamed as Tenzing-Hillary Airport in January 2008 in the honor of Sherpa Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary to mark their efforts in the construction of airport and celebrate their victory of being the first people to successfully climb Mt.Everest.

Is the flight to Lukla Safe?

Having had a reputation of being the most dangerous airport in this could be injustice to say the flight to Lukla is completely safe. The Lukla airport is said the world’s most dangerous airport because of its difficult topography and small airstrips. However, it is one of the busiest domestic airports of Nepal and flying there is pretty safe. The aviation officials and airlines of Nepal have become stricter on the acceptable flight conditions and regulations for aircraft making the journey to Lukla. The airlines and officials have been more concise regarding passenger safety and safely landing of the aircrafts.

During peak tourist seasons about 20 or 30 aircraft land in Lukla every day and almost all of the trekkers who visit the Everest Region annually fly into Lukla. Due to the difficulties of successfully landing at the airport, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal sets high standards, for which only experienced pilots, who completed at least 100 short-takeoff-and-landing (STOL) missions, have over one year of STOL experience in Nepal and completed ten missions into Lukla with a certified instructor pilot, are allowed to land at the airport.

TRAINING FOR EVEREST BASE CAMP 2019 & 2020

TRAINING FOR EVEREST BASE CAMP

Actual Adventure Pvt Ltd. has been organizing trekking for trekkers of all ages and levels of fitness to Everest Base Camp over several years. Since it is regarded as one of the most adventurous destination, almost all of the trekkers are curious about the difficulties of Everest Base Camp Trek and trek preparations.

Everest Base Camp Trek is regarded as one of the most challenging trek in the world and requires a high level of physical fitness. Although, Everest Base Camp Trek is tough it isn’t undoable. With proper dedication, training, itinerary and preparations, the trek can be accomplished by young and old people with normal physical fitness.

The Everest Base Camp Trek journey is about 130 kilometers. The trek can normally be completed within 11 days: 8 days up, 3 down. You’ll spend 2 days on the way up resting and acclimating to the elevation. The walk is about 5- 8 hours a day.  Since it is a long route and you will climb at an altitude of more than 4000 m and you will gain an elevation of about 300m each day you should walk slowly and steady. Slow and steady is the best way to safely enjoy the journey and minimize symptoms of altitude sickness.

Preparing for your trek

The Everest Base Camp trek isn’t tough if you start doing early trek preparations. It is an adventurous journey which requires a high level of physical fitness. Saying that it doesn’t mean you need to be an athletic or marathon runner. An early practice and preparation can make your trek easier and enjoyable.

We recommend you to consult to your doctor before planning to trek to Everest Base Camp or any physical challenge. Physical fitness is a factor to endure the challenges of the trek and enjoy the trial. However, it doesn’t guarantee the impact of altitude sickness. You can still get affected by the risk of altitude sickness in spite of having good physical fitness. Physical fitness on the other hand somewhat reduces the chances of altitude sickness. The following tips might help you out during your trek to Everest Base Camp.

Prior to the Trek

  • Buy your boots early, train with it, be ready to return it if it isn’t comfortable. Don’t buy a new boot and try it directly in the trek.
  • Wear your boots and daypack with a bit of weight in it prior to the trek.  
  • Hike for hours (push for duration, in addition to distance)
  • Practice elevation gain and loss (look for steep hills, use a stair machine)

Training:

Practice Hikes:

It is better to start hiking before one or two month of your Everest Base Camp Trek. You can start hiking in the local trials or hike through your town. The main motto of starting hiking prior to the trek is just to get your body used to long walks. Get your body used to at least 4-5 hours a day with minimal breaks.  This will help your body to manage the Base Camp trial. Calculate time and walking distance each day. Carry your day back and use your trekking boots during your hike.

Important Note: Make sure your trekking boots are comfortable to your feet. Buy your trekking boots early and get used to it. Wear it everywhere you go and pay attention to how your feet feel wearing them. Don’t buy boots that are too tight to your feet. If you feel uncomfortable walking with your boots, change them immediately. Also carry your backpacks along with you to get used to the weight if you don’t have porters.  

Cardio Training (Aerobic Exercise)
 Start Cardio training 1 or 2 months earlier to your trek. Cardio workouts like walking, jogging, swimming, and cycling help to train your body to work hard with less oxygen. This will help you keep your breath and focus at high elevation, and to enjoy the hike dramatically more. On the other hand it also reduces the chances of getting altitude sickness. Cardio training on the other hand has several benefits like, boosts your energy and your endurance, Helps you lose weight, Sheds body fat, and helps control blood pressure and many more.

Strength Training


Since trekking is a natural activity you don’t need to be highly dedicated on strength training. However, strength training can be a good option if you can’t go for hikes. On your Everest Base Camp Trek you’ll be trekking and gaining elevation for several hours each day, help your legs get ready by doing some strength training early.

Using a treadmill and stair machine can be an option if you don’t have access to good hiking trial. However, if you cannot afford to these machines another option for you can be a running track in the park or going around the neighborhood also work just as well.

  • Walk / jog for 45 minutes on the hill setting.
  • 10 minutes of stairs at 30 – 45 steps per minute.
  • 5 minute slower walking to catch your breathe.

Repeat a few times, or until you’re too fatigued to continue. Do this 2 times a week and increase the time jogging and on the stairs as you’re able. If you want extra strength training, adding in a few sets of lunges and squats can be a great way to build those leg muscles.

Tips to get the most out of your training

  1. Give yourself enough time to prepare
    You won’t get much benefit out of rushing your training in the few weeks before your trek. Start early. We go slow and steady up the mountain; your training should do the same. Give your body plenty of time to adjust.
  2. Watch your nutrition

You need to take care of your nutrition as well. Eat enough high calories food and proper diets. Try to avoid junk food as much as you can and also avoid eating meats. Don’t eat too much at one time otherwise you will feel sleepy during the trials and it will be difficult to walk with full stomach. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.

  1. Learn a few stretches to limber up before and after a day on the trail

Some dynamic stretches will warm you up in the morning and get you ready for the trail, and some static stretches will help loosen your muscles to heal as you’re resting at night. Learn a few stretches to limber up before and after a day on the trail to stay active during your trek..

  1. Taper off before your trek

If you are working out a lot over several days, let your body to rest few days before starting your trek. Don’t train too hard otherwise you may get negative results during the trek. Stay active, keep stretching, but give your body sufficient rest before you go to Nepal.  Arrive fresh and ready to hit the trail.
