We have designed the 15 days Everest Base Camp trek considering experienced as well as a beginner trekker. We have two acclimatization days at Namche and in Dingboche. This will help you to cope with the thin air and changing atmosphere. Altitude sickness is one of the difficulties when trekking to the height of 5643 meters at Kala Patthar. It is because the amount of oxygen at a higher altitude is comparatively low which results in difficulty in breathing.
Unlike Annapurna Base Camp, you will not find tea houses and lodges for food and accommodation in the Everest Base Camp. You have to return back to Ghorekshep for proper food and overnight stay.
For an exciting 15 days trek, join Adventure Great Himalaya. We intend to make your 15 days trek to the Everest Base Camp less challenging and more comfortable. Get ready for a memorable 15 days Everest Base Camp trek with us.
