Extra Tips for Everest Base Camp Trek
Trekking Porter – Everest Base Camp Trek gets a lot easier with the use of a trekking porter. While trekking to the Everest Base Camp, you will find porters to carry your gears while on the trail. A standard porter load is 25-55 pounds.
Local Currency – During your trek to the base of the Everest, you need to have the local currency, i.e., the Nepalese Rupees. Hence, we suggest you exchange the local money in Kathmandu.
Weather – The weather of the Everest Base Camp is not as constant as the weather in other places, so this keeps on changing continuously. So, for this, Adventure Great Himalaya Treks always suggests you have an added night in the Kathmandu Valley as rarely, the flight might get delayed or canceled.
Electricity – Even though the country is famous as the second most prosperous country in the world for its water resources, it has not been able to convert that resource into usable energy. Hence, there are problems of electricity in the village areas. Even if there is electricity in hotels, you always need to carry an extra multiplug to charge your kit.
