Many people have questions as to what level of physical fitness is required for trekking in Nepal and that is extremely reliant on what activity the visitor is engaging in Nepal With that said, for a standard easy trek to Extreme hard level of trekking. The daily activity (trek) would be 5-6 hours,(depend on the trekking trail) and elevation will generally not exceed 5,600 meters like Everest Base Camp, Throng la passes, Chola passes treks and other passes or Base Camp but some of them are less than 4000m. The trekking day is involving both long steep climbs, and descents with a variety of terrain underfoot from well-trodden paths, to rocks covered with ice or snow, depending on the season. Mostly a day would include a number of climbs or descents of 600 meters more or less, starting after the early morning breakfast, resting at a lunch place in the afternoon, then continuous trekking until arriving at the teahouse.
In preparation for the trekking in Nepal, it is important, to begin with, the basic training requirement at least 2 months before departing for trekking in Nepal. Two to three hours of aerobic exercise like running, walking, swimming, cycling & some gym work per week is the minimum and most will find it beneficial to add some basic strength training to their physical fitness routine required for the hard trekking and for normal and easy trek just have some physical fitness is enough. One of the best ways to prepare is to take practice hikes with a daypack roughly the same weight as what you will be taking during the trek. Your calf should be enough fit and prepare for trekking. Mostly during the trekking calf pain or tiredness is the main issue. Do this only after a baseline of fitness has been reached. Moving fast is not our goal, will provide a more enjoyable and safe adventure trekking in Nepal for all easy and hard level.
Trekking Seasons in Nepal:
There are main two seasons in which Nepal where the most amount of visitors visit. (September, October & November) being the most popular season which is also called the peak season in Nepal, and spring (March, April & May) coming in close behind which is also called the mini-season in Nepal. The summer months of June, July, and August are the monsoon season and most of the time raining as such the trails are mostly washed out sometimes, and roads can sometimes be impassible due to landslide activates. Nevertheless, you can trek to rain-shadow regions like Upper Dolpo and Upper Mustang during the monsoon seasons. Nepal is a suitable destination for all seasons.
Winter is very dry & extremely cold and all the high passes become inaccessible due to ice and snow conditions. The temperature doesn’t usually fluctuate during the day time temperature is around 20-25 degrees. However, you gain altitude the temperature decreases. The temperature can drop to around 0 to -25 degrees at night when staying at tented camps in Himalayan regions. Winter trek in higher altitudes is not advised due to the danger of avalanches and also altitude sickness. Although some may enjoy the sight of the snow-covered mountains as you reach your destination. However, the temperature does not change as much in lower mountain regions the nights are slightly colder than days’ time.
Autumn &Spring is the best timing for trekking in Nepal because the weather is generally warm and dry, and flowers are in bloom in the lower elevations of the country on the same time you can see the many festivals during that period.
A typical trekking day begins with the early morning breakfast around 7 am in the hotel. (Depend on the trekking region). It would advise you to pack your trekking gears in a duffle bag and essential supplies in your day pack after having breakfast; we begin the trek and head along the trail at around 8 am. The morning walk is more energetic to be longer as we begin with refreshed bodies and enthusiasm. A good morning’s walk, we make a stop for lunch at around 11-12 pm. The lunch involves group meals enjoying the vicinity around the stop & enjoys the organic & local food in the mountain. After resting for about an hour or two, we resume our trek to reach the teahouse or camp by 2-3 pm. The afternoon walk is relatively shorter and can involve games and side trips as organized by the trekking experienced guides. You also can enjoy breaks during the trek to relax, read, and stroll around the area, or doing yoga. You can explore with the local people and observe their lifestyle & culture. Dinner is served around 7-8 in the evening to round off the day.
Meals and Accommodations:
During the trekking period, the accommodation is commonly referred to as teahouses. These are family-run basic lodges that fill the role of the restaurant, Dining hall, and boarding house for tourists. Now a day’s electricity can be found in the rooms, which means one light bulb, and one or two outlets for charging electronics. The common areas are also lit by electricity. Alternatively, teahouses may also use solar, hydroelectric, or have electrical lines running into the village, so the commonality and availability of electricity may vary. Still few of the trekking route electricity services are not available. Use the local traditional kerosene light.
Most of the teahouses have private rooms, though if the trek is in a more remote or high altitude place there are limited teahouses so season time dormitories are the norm. Most of the room has 2 single beds with basic bedding, and the bathroom is shared. Some of the places we can get the private bathroom also with a mix of western and squat style toilets in the bathrooms.
Breakfast and dinner are taken at the same teahouses and these lodges have large family-style dining rooms centered on a stove or coal to provide heat basically in mountain areas. Most of the area’s menu will have Nepali-style western foods such as pancakes, pizza, burgers, fries, etc. Also on the menu is the traditional Nepali food Dal Bhat meal. This is a lentil soup with rice, vegetable, Pickle, or meat curry. Most menus will also offer a smattering of local cuisine.
Internal Flight Delays:
Nepal is an incredible and beautiful country mixed of the White Mountains, deep valleys, Landscape, rivers, and green rolling hills. With this incredible diversity of landscapes, road travel can be extremely time-consuming and flights within Nepal to reach popular trekking destinations is the easiest way. Not all the trekking destination has flight service so road transportation is the only option. Mountainous terrain also comes the possibility of in-climate weather. It mentions the incredibly high number of visitors during peak seasons makes internal flight delays a very real possibility. To manage this situation it may be helpful to have a few extras days on either end of your tour. If any cancellations or flight delays do occur (high chances of flight delays from around Kathmandu to Lukla, Everest region, Pokhara to Jomsom, Annapurna region), we also provide services to arrange chopper on the last stage to help you to be on your schedule on the premises of Civil Aviation Rules in Nepal which state that helicopters can fly if the visibility is 1500m. The cost ranges from USD400 to USD650 according to the number of passengers. The payment can be made either to the helicopter company or to us directly and can be made either by cash or using a credit card. It will be very helpful to purchase and review your insurance as some of the alternative measures for travel may be covered by the insurance companies. Flight insurance may cover changing your international flight if it is necessary.
Most expeditions, Adventurous trekking, and tours require that travel insurance and it is purchased prior to arriving in Nepal, but other normal treks and tours may not require. However, travel insurance is definitely an important consideration. There are a number of reasons to consider insurance. Firstly, it may be required, so check to see what is being asked for by the company. Second, Nepal is a landlocked country, and there are only a few direct flights. Travel in and out of the country can encounter some disruptions if purchasing insurance, make sure flight delays and cancellations also included. Always choose insurance that, though every safeguard is in place during your Holiday, there are always extenuating circumstances that may result in an accident during trekking & tours. Read carefully printout of insurance policies to ensure that the trekking or any other activity you are engaging in is covered or not, as some policies have stopped covering trekking in certain places. If you are going above 5000 m or high always mention the policies so it’s cover the chopper service in the last condition. It is very important that if you have the comfort of good insurance, so do the research and choose carefully which makes your trip relaxing and joyful.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS):
Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is usually seen in un-acclimatized people shortly after ascent to high altitudes. The condition occurs due to the thinning of air as the altitude increases. The condition, if not taken seriously and treated immediately, can be life-threatening and its symptoms can be seen generally above 3200 meters. The symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness are nausea, vomiting, tiredness, shortness of breath, and cerebral pain. The itineraries are designed to properly acclimatize you to the change in high altitude climate and sufficient precautionary measures too are taken to take utmost caution for our valuable guests. Our staff also equipped with cell phones and satellite phones (Option) in the occurrence of any emergency cases. We are greatly driven to keep the safety and security of our clients as our foremost concern.
Water is essential for life, and clean water is imperative while on holiday. When visiting less developed countries like Nepal it is a concern that all travelers should consider. There are few options when trekking or traveling in Nepal that will mitigate any chances of drinking contaminated water. The first consideration to take into account is that tap water should not be ingested. That even means when brushing your teeth in an urban area. Most will choose to buy bottled water and if doing so make sure the cap has sealed properly. Plastic bottle reuse is a big problem, and with that being said there are other options on the market to assist in making water drinkable. Mountain spring water is drinkable but if you use the purified tablet. The conservation area project also sells this tablet for most of the trekking area. A guide will assist you to find out it also.
Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) Kathmandu Nepal, our company representatives are stationed to welcome you to the country. We request you to carefully look for your and company name placard being held by our representatives following the events upon landing.

We request you to pay no attention to these people and follow the company representatives and follow their instructions.
How to Book Your Tour:

The Everest Base Camp trek is popular for several reasons:
- Location: Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world, is located in Nepal and the base camp trek offers a close-up view of the mountain and its surrounding peaks.
- Adventure: The trek offers a challenging adventure, with daily hikes and high-altitude conditions.
- Scenery: The trek takes you through stunning mountain scenery, including glaciers, valleys, and traditional Sherpa villages.
- Cultural experience: The trek passes through the Solu-Khumbu region, home to the Sherpa people, offering a unique cultural experience and insight into the way of life in the high Himalayas.
- Accessibility: The trek is relatively accessible, with a well-established trail and plenty of support services, making it suitable for trekkers of various fitness levels.
These factors make the Everest Base Camp trek one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world, attracting thousands of visitors each year.
Kalapatthar is a viewpoint located near the Everest Base Camp in the Solu-Khumbu region of Nepal. It stands at an altitude of 5,545 meters (18,192 feet) above sea level.
Everest Base Camp, on the other hand, is located at an altitude of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) above sea level. This is the starting point for climbers attempting to reach the summit of Mount Everest and also a popular destination for trekkers.
Reaching either Kalapatthar or the Everest Base Camp requires a multi-day trek through the high-altitude Himalayan terrain, and it is important to be physically fit and acclimatized to the altitude before attempting either destination.
The best season for the Everest Base Camp trek is from September to November and from March to May. During these months, the weather is stable and clear, offering the best views of the surrounding mountains and making it easier to complete the trek.
September to November is also the peak climbing season for Mount Everest, which means that you may have the opportunity to meet climbers and see the mountain at its most active.
In the winter months from December to February, the weather can be very cold and snowy, making the trek more challenging and the mountain views less clear.
June to August is the monsoon season, with heavy rain and poor visibility, making the trek more difficult and less enjoyable.
It is important to plan your trip carefully, take into account the conditions, and be prepared for the challenges of high-altitude trekking in the Himalayas.
During the Everest Base Camp trek, you will have the opportunity to see several of the world’s highest and most beautiful mountains, including:
- Mount Everest (8848m) – The tallest mountain in the world and the main attraction of the trek.
- Lhotse (8516m) – The fourth tallest mountain in the world, located just next to Mount Everest.
- Nuptse (7861m) – A mountain located to the west of Mount Everest and known for its impressive ridges and peaks.
- Ama Dablam (6856m) – A striking mountain located in the Khumbu region and known for its distinctive shape and beauty.
- Pumori (7161m) – A mountain located near Mount Everest and known for its dramatic pyramidal peak.
- Thamserku (6623m) – A mountain located in the Khumbu region and known for its impressive shape and rugged beauty.
In addition to these towering peaks, you will also see beautiful glaciers, valleys, and traditional Sherpa villages, making the Everest Base Camp trek one of the most scenic and rewarding trekking destinations in the world.
Some trekkers and climbers return from the Everest Base Camp trek by helicopter for several reasons:
- Altitude sickness: The high altitude of the Everest region can cause altitude sickness, which can be severe in some cases. Taking a helicopter back to lower elevations can help avoid further complications.
- Time constraints: Some trekkers and climbers may have limited time and choose to return by helicopter to save time.
- Physical exhaustion: The trek to the Everest Base Camp is demanding and some trekkers may find that they are physically exhausted and unable to complete the return journey on foot.
- Weather conditions: The weather in the Everest region can be unpredictable, and some trekkers may choose to return by helicopter if they encounter bad weather that makes the return journey on foot dangerous or difficult.
- Personal preference: Some trekkers may simply prefer to return by helicopter, as it provides a unique and exciting way to experience the region from the air.
Returning by helicopter is a convenient and efficient way to end a trek, but it is important to consider the cost, environmental impact, and safety aspects before making this choice.
The Everest Base Camp Trek is considered a challenging trek, as it involves several days of strenuous hiking at high altitude. The trek typically takes 9 to 16 days and covers a distance of approximately 70 km, with a maximum altitude of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) at Gorak Shep, the last stop before reaching the base camp.
Some of the challenges that trekkers may face on the Everest Base Camp Trek include:
- Altitude Sickness: The high altitude can cause altitude sickness, which can cause headaches, nausea, fatigue, and shortness of breath. To minimize the risk of altitude sickness, trekkers are advised to acclimate slowly and to seek medical attention if they experience symptoms.
- Physical Demand: The trek involves several hours of hiking each day, often on steep and rocky terrain. Trekkers should be in good physical condition and prepared for the physical demands of the trek.
- Weather: The weather in the Himalayas can be unpredictable, with frequent changes in temperature and sudden storms. Trekkers should be prepared for all types of weather and carry proper gear, including warm clothing and rain gear.
- Remote Location: The Everest Base Camp Trek takes place in a remote location, far from modern conveniences and medical facilities. Trekkers should be prepared for basic camping and self-sufficient travel, and should carry necessary first-aid supplies and equipment.
Despite these challenges, the Everest Base Camp Trek is considered a rewarding experience, offering incredible scenery, cultural immersion, and the opportunity to challenge oneself in a unique and beautiful environment. Trekkers who are prepared for the challenges and have a positive attitude can expect a truly unforgettable experience.
Yes, it is highly recommended that you have travel insurance for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be unpredictable, and it is important to be prepared for unexpected events such as medical emergencies, cancellations, or lost or stolen equipment. Travel insurance can help protect you against financial losses in these situations and provide peace of mind during your trip.
When selecting travel insurance, look for a policy that covers trekking and adventure activities, and make sure it covers the specific activities you will be doing on the Everest Base Camp Trek. It’s also important to ensure that the policy covers emergency medical and evacuation expenses, which can be very costly in remote areas like the Himalayas.
It’s a good idea to carry a copy of your travel insurance policy and contact information with you at all times during your trip. If you have any questions or concerns about your coverage, be sure to contact your insurance provider before your trip.
