How Safe Is Everest Base Camp Trek?

Travel & Tourism
That’s a good question if you are planning a trek to the Everest base camp. You are going to trek to the high mountain and must be thinking it could not be safe then searching on the internet that “how safe to trek to the Everest base camp?”

Trekking to the Himalaya is not a pic of a cake to everyone. It needs some physical effort to trek to the Everest base camp. There are lots of up and down hills which make tired to the trekkers and other factors as well. But it is not a hard trek as much as you might be thinking.

About Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest base camp trek is a fairly popular trekking destination in Nepal and all over the world because of its name. There should be a big goal for the trekkers to reach the base camp of the world’s highest mountain. There are two base camps of Mt. Everest. One base camp is on the Tibetan side which is known as the north base camp and the south base camp is in Nepal. You can drive almost to the base camp on the Tibetan side but you need to trek a few days to reach the base camp on the Nepalese side.

Flying from Kathmandu on a small aircraft to Lukla the trek begins. There is a small airport in Lukla which is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world. Right after landing at Lukla airport, the journey starts towards Phakding where you will spend the first night. You will trek a week after Phakding to reach the base camp including two rest days for altitude practice. Local Sherpa villages such as Namche Bazaar, Dingboche, and others provide you with traditional and cultural feelings during the trek. Trekking through the Sagarmatha national park, you will enjoy the views of waterfalls, river valleys, wildlife, vegetation, glacier, an unreal view of high mountains, and many more attractions on the trek. So, enjoying the nature of this region can make your trip a lifetime adventure experience.

What Make Everest Base Camp Trek Difficult?

If you are an adventurous person, trekking to the Everest base camp should be fine and not difficult. There are certain things that you should about this trek. You will fly direct from Kathmandu (1,350 m) to Lukla (2,840 m) so an altitude ascent can make you difficult if you are not climatized. You need to have at least one extra day in Kathmandu before flying to Lukla to minimize the problem facing. Buy a good travel insurance policy that covers any emergency evacuation above 6,000 meters.

It is a cold region so, you need to have warm and quality trekking equipment for the trek. You better to know what kind of hiking equipment should bring. There might snow or rain sometimes, you better have a rain cover and enough spare clothes if you get wet. And also check weather and temperatures before the time of the visit. It is a crowded trekking trail with hundreds of trekkers during the high trekking season. You should not have enough space to sleep so, always book at least one day earlier the accommodation where you’re the next stop will be.

You will see lots of local porters with heavy loads, yak, and mules along the way, you need to careful with them. If you meet them in a narrow space, always stay on the safe side because if the loads push mistakenly, you won’t have an accident. Drinking normal tap water will harm your stomach. Try to buy bottled water or use purification medication in normal water. When you will be around 5,000 meters of places, the water should have lots of specks of dust. Buying bottled water is highly recommended in those places.

An important matter is getting a flight ticket to Lukla. Many travelers book their flight tickets a few months earlier in advance to get as much as the earliest flight. Usually, early morning flights will be easier to fly with less wind and clear visibility. The plane will cancel often due to the bad weather and it can be week-long bad weather sometimes. You should be ready to fly with a helicopter paying an extra cost in that case or be ready to change the destination.

There is a weight limit on the flight that you only can take 15 kg with one ticket including your hand luggage. You better pack only needed equipment to minimize weight limitation. You can minimize the load by not pack some daily usage things that you can buy in some places during the trek. You will spend around 3000 NPR per day in the trek if you don’t do party up in the mountain and also drinking alcohol is not good at high elevation. So, take enough cash (NPR) with you. The exchange rate in the mountain is not good. There are some ATMs but they might not work all the time. Hopefully, the current problem facing with coronavirus will stop soon and you can trek on your holiday.

If you are a luxury traveler and want to reach Everest base camp without struggle, you can take a helicopter tour to visit the base camp. It takes you directly to the base camp from Kathmandu within a couple of hours.

let's start the trek now.
