How to make EBC trek success

The EBC Trek is a stunning walking through the world-famous Sherpa village. This is not a challenging climb, You do not need any previous climbing experience or even any altitude experience to complete this Base Camp trek. However, you need to be physically fit and have excellent patience and fully enjoy the journey. You may feel that you are taking a risk and difficult to complete this trek but I would recommend you to spend least one hours daily in your home town for doing some shorts of extreme physical exercise prior to the starting date of your trekking. I personally recommend to walking on stair-master in Gym with a load of the 5-10kg backpack. How important is this for your trek…..Can’t recommend enough! This trek involves about 4-6hrs walking daily to be stress-free!

Remember you are on holiday, Enjoy yourself! This is the most important tips to remember that you are in your lifetime holiday. Open your mind, listen to the noise from silence, share your problems and be safe each-other. There is always a lot of spare time, you are walking anywhere about 4-6hrs a day. Therefore have plenty of time when you arrive in the tea house to rest, relax and have a beautiful laugh with your trekking fellows. It is important to have this time throughout your Everest journey as they help to keep you positive and relaxed instead of nervous and tense. Please keep in mind that you are trekking in Himalaya in the new destination, things may be done in a different manner as you may be used at home but it does not mean that things are done wrong there. It means that there is a cultural difference than your practice in your home.
