What You Can Expect From Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days Package?

  • You may discover the striking landscapes of the Khumbu area, including the magnificent Sagarmatha National Park, on the classic EBC adventure.
  • You will travel through valleys of fir and deodar, walk beside historic moraines and gleaming glaciers, and see impressive Buddhist temples and stupas.
  • Several of the biggest Himalayan giants, including Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and Ama Dablam, are also likely to be on your path. They tower over the Khumbu Mountains' slopes.
  • This walk will provide an extremely uncommon chance to get a glimpse of the inhabitants' time-honored way of life, culture, and customs in Khumbu.
  • People of the Sherpa, Tamang, and Rai ethnic groups live in the area, and they will welcome you with open arms to learn more about their way of life and fervent religious beliefs.
  • Even better, you will get the opportunity to tour Tengboche Monastery, the area's oldest and biggest Buddhist temple.

Are you Suitable for our 14 days Everest Base Camp Trek?

  • If you are well enough to participate in the 14 days Everest Base Camp journey and are willing to put in the effort, it will be gratifying and maybe the finest experience of your life.
  • This journey is the perfect choice if you are looking for stunning scenery, want to learn about the local culture by visiting monasteries, meet local guides and teahouse owners, and want to admire Buddhist stupas and mani stones along the way.
  • This trip is appropriate for you if you have already completed the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and the Annapurna Circuit Trek and wish to try a more difficult trek.
  • Although completing the Everest Base Camp trip in 14 days is not an easy undertaking, most people who are accustomed to trekking while carrying some weight can achieve it and enjoy the challenge if they begin their preparations well before the event's start date.
  • This trip is appropriate for you to obtain a close view of Mount Everest if you don't mind walking for 5 to 6 hours every day for 14 days while carrying a daypack.

How to Get Prepared For 14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek? 

Considering that you will have to climb up and down on an unsteady route for 14 days while carrying a bag that weighs at least 6 kg and spends, on average, 5 to 6 hours a day on foot. It will be necessary for you to begin increasing your strength and endurance a few months early. Make a schedule for your workout that includes walking up and down hills while wearing a backpack that is packed with 6 to 12 kg at least once every week.

Your legs and muscles will be better prepared for the hike with more hill training. It is crucial because your lungs cannot provide your muscles with enough oxygen at higher altitudes where there is less oxygen. Start working out, start weightlifting, and walk with your hefty rucksack to be fit if you want to successfully reach Base Camp and avoid upsetting fellow trekkers. Even professional climbers prepare themselves for a task like this beforehand.

At the same time, keep in mind that preparing for the 14 days trek to Everest Base Camp includes a significant amount of mental preparation. It is a tough path with a high degree of difficulty that lasts many days, even if the rank of the adventure cannot be compared to climbing Everest. Be ready for everyday occurrences, constantly changing weather and the high likelihood of altitude sickness.

Useful Info

Everest Base Camp 14 Days Trek Best Time, Season, Months

The Everest Base Camp Trek has a history of successful treks in all seasons. The two seasons with the highest visitation rates are spring and autumn. Winter and summer, however, are also popular tourist seasons, just at certain times.

Spring

The optimum months for a 14-day trek to Everest Base Camp are in the spring. This season's months are March, April, and May. The favorable weather conditions during these months make high-altitude hikes fascinating. Under the clear sky, the pathways' vibrant rhododendrons and appealing Himalayan views are a plus. Seasonal changes generate fresh growth in the landscape, including flowering woodland trails and gushing river banks.

Autumn

Autumn is the best time to go on the 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek because of the beautiful skies, comfortable temperatures, and little likelihood of snowfall. September, October, and November make up the fall season. The temperature is cooler than in April because winter air is gradually moving into the Himalayas. The paths are quite congested with trekkers from all over the world because it is the post-monsoon season.

Food or Meal during 14 Days EBC (Everest Base Camp) Trek

Three meals will be provided each day on your 14-day Everest Base Camp Package Trek (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). You will need adequate carbohydrates and proteins if you plan to hike at a high altitude close to the tallest peak in the world. Both tea houses and lodges include dining options. You shouldn't anticipate discovering a wide selection of Western food up on the Everest Base Camp Trek because it is in a mountainous environment. On this excursion, though, you will undoubtedly eat real Nepali food.

Additionally, since meat meals are not fresh and clean, it would be better if you avoided eating them during the voyage. Because it is illegal to butcher animals in the Khumbu area, any meat that is accessible there must be transported via yak or porter from Kathmandu or Kharikhola. However, the vegetarian meals provided at the homestays are delectable and packed with nutrition. You get enough energy from them to finish a day's worth of hiking. You are given a new breakfast and lunch menu every day.

French fries, boiled eggs, toast, momo, pancakes, omelets, spaghetti, noodles, and more dishes are available for you to consume. Try the traditional Nepali fare as well, which includes lentils, rice, vegetable curry, pickles, and other side dishes. Similar to other beverages, these routes provide hot chocolate, hot lemon, coffee, tea, and cold drinks.

Accommodation Facilities on 14-day EBC Trekking Route

All of your accommodations on the EBC Trek route are likely to be teahouses. Teahouse lodging in Nepal is modest, clean, and pleasant specifically designed to accommodate visitors. The majority of rooms are basic. They have low-rise mattresses with foam mattress pads, wood-paneled or plastered walls, and, for the most part, only one window. Some teahouses feature in-room heaters, while others have a central burner that is lit in the evenings. Some hotels provide hot showers, while the majority only provide cold ones. Most places have electrical charging, nevertheless, it may be at a charge. 

14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty Level

The path may be quite simple for somebody who has experienced years of long hikes carrying a hefty rucksack. On the other side, those without access to hills or who aren't accustomed to everyday exercise like hiking will need to put in a lot of effort to be ready for this trip, which will undoubtedly be difficult. You should also be mindful of the effects of changing climates and altitude sickness. Everything is unpredictable since the hike leads you over the 5000-meter barrier. It will be difficult for newbies to climb and descend every day. You don't need prior mountaineering knowledge because the hike consists of physical walks without any technical aspects. But in order to finish the 14-day trek in the Himalayas, you must be enthusiastic and committed.

Requirement of Travel Insurance for 14 Days EBC Trek

Although Nepal is a reasonably safe destination to visit for both men and women, you can never be certain that your health or property will be safe. Having your belongings insured will alleviate any fears you may have about their security. Getting insured and forgetting about your worries may often lead to a pleasant trip.

Extreme weather changes, as well as a variety of risks like altitude sickness, accidents, and plane cancellations, are all part of the Everest Base Camp expedition. Stumbling, pulling a muscle, or getting altitude sickness may all be dangerous. Even for the most basic of illnesses, finding someone to cure your condition at such a high altitude may demand paying insane amounts of money. If you need to be rescued from a helicopter, your flight expenses may be raised or even treble.

Other forms of incidents, such as petty theft, luggage damage, and airline cancellations, are also a possibility. So, we highly recommend that you get EBC Trek travel insurance since there is so much stuff that may go wrong on a lousy day. Recommended Travel Insurance

Altitude Sickness and Remedies during 14 Days EBC Trek

Trekkers will begin their adventure at 1300 meters (Kathmandu) and travel to Lukla straight (2800 m). They will have to adapt their bodies about 3400 m after Lukla, which would take roughly two days. As a result, hikers are at significant risk of developing altitude sickness. Altitude sickness, often known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is an illness that occurs when people are not adequately acclimatized to a high altitude. To minimize altitude sickness on the 14 days of Everest Base Camp Trek, follow this advice from our expert trekking guides and trip planners.

  • Trekkers can get their bodies acclimated by hiking and ascending steadily. They may become exhausted as a result of too much rushed walking, and this might be a key cause of developing altitude sickness.
  • You should hike as high as possible for your acclimatization rest and then return to a lower elevation for nighttime sleep. Proper Acclimatization rest not only helps to prevent altitude sickness but also aids the body in recovering exhausted muscles and adjusting to the shifting oxygen levels.
  • During the hike, it is strongly encouraged that you do not consume alcohol or smoke. Alcohol, cigarettes, and tobacco use deplete the body's water reserves. It also slows down and makes you feel tired. It eventually leads to altitude sickness.
  • Drink lots of warm water to avoid altitude sickness in high areas. Every half-hour of walking, you should drink 500 ml of water.
  • During high-altitude trekking, many individuals lose their appetite and eat very little. It's quite risky. Increase your intake of liquid foods and avoid emptying your stomach. It's easier to avoid altitude sickness if you eat well.
  • It's possible that a psychological factor has contributed to your illness. As a result, be ready and optimistic. Instead of dwelling on your bad thoughts, take in the beautiful environment. Maintain a pleasant attitude by conversing with your fellow trekkers or guide.

14 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking Distance and Elevation

The full trip from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back, including acclimatization hikes in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche, as well as the hike up and down Kala Patthar, is 81 miles/130 kilometers,  don't be concerned about the distance; you will do it in 14 days. On average, the daily hike will be 12 kilometers and approximately 6 to 7 hours. Lukla, at 2800 meters, is the lowest place from which you may begin hiking, while Kala Patthar, at 5645 meters, is the highest point from where you can obtain a clear glimpse of Mount Everest's summit. You will be able to feel the impacts of the rise in your body as you ascend. As you hike toward Everest Base Camp, you will gain about 400 to 800 meters in elevation each day. Everest Base Camp Trek Map and Altitude Chart

14 Days EBC Trek Packing List, Gears, Equipment

The essential equipment consists of a sleeping bag, a pair of High Mountain walking boots, poles, a duffel bag, warm hiking apparel, warm socks, gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen, and other needs. Another crucial point to remember is that it's best to wear thin, tight, comfortable clothes when hiking in the High Mountains.

    GVNT Offered Excellent Service During Everest Base Camp Trek Journey

    From the planning and preparation stage through the actual Everest Base Camp Trek and back, GVNT offered excellent service. The business and our amazing guide Gopal took care of every little thing. The entire time, we received genuine white-glove service, and our guide took fantastic care of us by making sure our lodgings were suitable and we always had a plentiful supply of food. Due to our guide and porters' attention to detail and friendliness, we received multiple inquiries about Green Valley Nepal Treks throughout the course of the trek. I honestly can't say enough good things about this organization because I didn't have a single issue or complaint the entire time! I heartily endorse this tour company and its personnel!

FAQs
  • Yes! Trekking to Everest Base Camp is really worthwhile. Especially in October and November, the sights are breathtaking. Base camp is bustling with climbers during the expedition period of April to May. If you think you can accomplish this hike in the winter, there will be significantly fewer other hikers and climbers, and the vistas will be much clearer. It will, however, be more difficult and chilly!

  • Yes. You can hike to EBC on your own by following other hikers or groups. But we don’t recommend trekking alone. If you don't want to hire a guide and want to take any side roads that cross passes, consider hiring a local porter. It's for your own protection. Also, the safety of those who may be called upon to assist you if you become incapacitated.

  • The altitude is the major 'risk' of trekking to Everest Base Camp. You will spend three days at a height of 5,000 meters. Slowing down and taking the appropriate acclimatization days will significantly lessen the risk. Avalanches are extremely unusual, and there have been no reports of them on this route.

  • There are many possibilities! It will take 12 days to get from Lukla to Lukla if you use the standard and most common route. The number of days required to visit Gokyo Lake or the Three Passes varies between 14 and 16. It will take 18 to 20 days if you trek in from Jiri and fly out from Lukla.

  • If you're undertaking a solo walk, plan on spending at least USD 35 each day. The flight to and from Lukla will set you back between USD 380 and USD 400. We offer a 14-day package tour that costs $1195 for a single person and $1120 for a group of two to four. Certain items are included and excluded from the package cost, as well as different prices. If you are in a group of more than four persons, please contact us for group offers.

  • You will immediately notice the difference in air temperature when you arrive at Lukla. The temperature will have fallen when you reach Dingboche (above Namche Bazaar). The higher you get, the more you'll be able to feel chilly weather. Temperatures can drop below -20 degrees Celsius at night during the winter.

  • The optimum time to go to Everest Base Camp is based on the activities you want to undertake there. Trekking is best done in the spring (March-May) or fall (October-November), whereas a helicopter trip may be done at any time outside of the rainy season. Winter isn't out of the question, though; if you're prepared for the cold, you'll be rewarded with stunning mountain vistas.

  • To trek to Everest Base Camp, you don't need any technical knowledge or climbing abilities. Be advised that this is a hike, not a climb. There are no high passes to traverse, either. However, there is the issue of altitude to consider, and you must properly acclimate. This will be accomplished if you hike with a knowledgeable guide. If you're going solo, keep an eye on your health and take it gently.

  • Since 2010, the Everest Region has had 3G access. It does not, however, operate in all situations. You will not obtain service in various regions of Gokyo and the Thame Valley.

  • Yes! Courtesy to the Everest Link company, WIFI is available at Everest Base Camp and over 200 hotspots along the way.
