Training for Everest Base Camp

Base Camp 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 we would recommend you spend least one hour daily in your home town for doing some shorts of extreme physical exercise prior to the starting date of your trekking. we would recommen walking on the stair-master in Gym with a load of the 5-10kg backpack. How important is this for your trek…..I can’t recommend enough! This trek involves about 4-6 hrs walking daily!

Remember you are on holiday, Enjoy yourself! This is the most important tip to remember that you are in your lifetime holiday. Open your mind, listen to the noise from silence, share your problems with group and be safe each-other. There is always a lot of additional time, you are walking anywhere about 4-6 hrs a day. Therefore having plenty of time when you reach in the guest house to rest, relax and have a beautiful laugh with your trekking fellows. It is significant to have this time throughout your Everest base camp 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 region 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 are cultural difference from your practice in your home.

Hot shower facility is available in some guesthouse for a price but occasionally hot shower means a bucket of hot water which is enough to wash your body. Electricity and Wi-Fi are available in someplace for an additional cost.
