Is the Short EBC Trek Difficult?

The Short Everest Base Camp Trek is categorized as ‘moderate’ in difficulty. It is less of a challenge for those who have previous high altitude trekking experience. For those who don’t have previous high altitude experience, this trip can be difficult because of High altitude. In terms of the actual trail, the path up to Gorekshep and Everest Base Camp is man-made. However, the trail to Gorekshep changes every year due to the glacier melting, so the trail can be a bit rocky. The trail from Gorakshep to Everest Base Camp can be a bit rocky as well. It is always advisable to follow your guide in this part and to ask for help if you get confused. Although this trek is not too difficult for experienced alpine hikers, you can certainly add an extra day to the itinerary to have a more relaxed pace.

What is the Best Time for the Short Everest Base Camp Trek?

The best time to take the Short Everest Base Camp Trek is after the monsoon season (September-November) and just after winter (March-May). The most common season for trekking in the Everest region is autumn. September is renowned for having colorful landscapes with the white Himalayas in the background. October and November offer the clearest views of the Himalayas. The second most popular season is spring. March is popular for having clear views and blooming alpine flowers. April is the time for climbing expeditions, so you’ll be able to see a colorful little town of tents at Everest Base Camp! All the expedition groups hunker down at the base camp for their training and acclimatization before they start the next leg of their summit push. If you come either in the spring and autumn, you will have awesome views of Everest Base Camp and Mount Everest from Kalapatthar.

Is the Short Everest Base Camp Trek for you?

Of course! The Short Everest Base Camp Trek is for anyone, especially you! That being said, it’s better if you have previous high altitude trekking experience. Or, if you are nearby some mountains, you should build up your stamina and fitness before you take the Short Everest Base Camp Trek. If you have the inner determination and some previous hiking experience, we will help you finish this trek successfully. For a successful trek, you need both inner power and solid stamina.

Fitness Level for this Trek

We recommend doing some hiking regularly starting about 10 weeks before your departure date. Walking about 3-5 km every day, especially up and downhill, builds your stamina and will help you on the trail to Everest Base Camp. If you don’t have any mountains near you, running on a treadmill, stair-climbing, swimming, etc., will build your stamina. Please consult your doctor before you go to the gym or do any rigorous exercise. All in all, you do not have to be an ultra-athletic climber or a sportsman.

Trip note

Food and Beverages

Food in the Everest region is great! There are well-trained cooks in each village throughout the trek. From the menu, you can choose your desired dish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A variety of both local and western dishes are available. Some common menu items include pizza, fried noodles, fried rice, some variation of potatoes, Swiss Roast, pasta, and of course Dal Bhat (Nepali typical dish consisting of rice, lentil soup, vegetable curry, and pickle). For beverages, each teahouse offers water, coffee, tea, cold drinks, and beer. Though, we don’t recommend drinking beer after Namche Bazaar, due to the effect it can have on your body in the high altitude. In Lukla, Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Lobuche, there are awesome cafes to have a pastry and a fresh cup of coffee. 

Accommodation

Accommodation on Short Everest Base Camp Trek is nice to compare to other trekking routes in Nepal. There are well-decorated Sherpa lodges up until Gorekshep. You will have a clean room with a blanket and pillow every night up to Gorekshep. The rooms are on a basic, twin-sharing basis. The views from the window each morning are breathtaking! It is awesome looking out of your bedroom window each night as you get closer and closer to the mountains. If you are traveling solo, you might have to share a room with the same gender in the high season. 

Safety for Short Everest Base Camp Trek

Safety is the key to a successful trek in the Himalaya. As the Everest Base Camp Trek is the most popular trail in Nepal, and perhaps even the world, the trail is very well-maintained. From winter until sometimes early April, it is possible to have ice and heavy snow on the trail. As a precaution, our team carries crampons and an ice axe for your safety. Please carry your personal medicine advised by your doctor, if you have any. The Short Everest Base Camp Trek is a safe trek in the Everest region. This trail is covered with the mobile network, and you will get WiFi (fees depend on what the guesthouse charges), so you do not have to worry about being disconnected or unreachable. 

Altitude Sickness

High altitude sickness is an unexpected critical situation for trekkers. It can quickly get worse if we don’t listen to our bodies right away. Altitude sickness is caused by a lack of oxygen in our bodies. There are three main kinds, which must be noticed in the first stage in order to minimize the problems. They can happen to anyone at any time in the Himalayas. It can cause huge troubles (in extreme cases, it cause death) if you don’t listen to your body. When symptoms of the second stage of appearing, you must descend as soon as possible at least 300-1000 meters. While you are experiencing altitude sickness, your body becomes very weak, so it’s better not to walk yourself. Our guides will do their best to safely guide you to a lower elevation. Here are three types of altitude sickness: AMS, HAPE, and HACE. Keep in mind, none of this is meant to scare you – the likelihood of you contracting one of these sicknesses is slim, but it’s better to be knowledgeable about the risks.

a) Acute Mountain Sickness:

Acute Mountain Sickness is the most common type of altitude sickness in the Himalaya. It can happen to anyone, whether you are comfortable in high altitude or it is your first time. This first symptom can happen at the altitude of 1500m-3000m. You may feel nauseous, dizzy, headache, and muscle aches. If you do experience these symptoms, don’t hesitate to tell your guide. Drinking 3+ liters of water (with electrolytes) and taking an extra day for acclimatization will help you recover.

b) High Altitude Pulmonary Edema:

Pulmonary Edema is caused by a deficiency of oxygen in our bodies due to high altitude. When this happens, our lungs are under immense pressure and start to fill with fluid. The symptoms of Pulmonary Edema are like pneumonia. It feels as if your body is being poisoned, slowly and painfully. If this happens, you must descend as quickly and carefully as possible. It is dangerous to walk and breathe while your lungs are full of fluid. You need to be carried by a horse, guide, porter or take a helicopter evacuation in this situation. Our medically trained and experienced guide will take care of you and help you avoid HAPE on your Short Everest Base Camp Trek.

c) High Altitude Cerebral Edema:

High Altitude Cerebral Edema happens when, due to a lack of oxygen in the air, fluid enters the brain. This gives a very bad pain in the head. It makes you lose coordination, have trouble walking, and contract a severe deep headache that cannot be cured with taking regular medicine. With the help of your guide, you must descend as soon as possible to lower elevation.

Flight to Lukla

All flights to Lukla are now operating from Ramechhap Airport in Manthali, along the banks of the Tama Koshi River.  Manthali is roughly a 4 hour drive from Kathmandu. After the trek, we fly to Manthali again and drive back to Kathmandu. The flight from Manthali to Lukla is very scenic. Seeing the Himalayas from your window will get you excited to get on the trail and start trekking. There are no reserved seats on this flight, so we recommend taking the left side for a better view of the Himalayas!

 Guide and Porters

Having a good guide can add a lot of meaning to your trip and can even be the deciding factor of whether you’ll have a successful trek or not. All guides and porters from Breeze Adventure are highly professional and dedicated to their work. They will lead you to Everest Base Camp safely and will always be with you during the trek. There will be 1 porter for every two people. Like our guides, the porters for the Short Everest Base Camp Trek are from the Everest region as well. They will join you in Lukla and continue the trip to Everest Base Camp. They can carry up to 20 kg of your luggage, so try to pack 20kg or around 20 kg for your Short Everest Base Camp Trek. 

Travel Insurance

We strongly recommend having travel insurance before going on a trek.  We do our best to take care of you, but something can happen that is out of our control.  In case of a medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance.  You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country. Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains.
