Trekking to Everest panorama is obviously for all with fair fitness level. If you love outdoor adventure; do not have problem with trekking long hours for multiple days in high mountains; can survive with basic necessities and sometimes without them; and finally if you love the serenity of mountains and uniqueness of local culture and lifestyle, yes, this trip is definitely for you.
We fly to Lukla from Kathmandu for about half an hour on a small plane. Although the plane is small, the flight brings beautiful sights of mountains. Then we trek for multiple days up and down the trail towards the Everest amidst the marvellous mountains.
Fitness is the key requirement to trek to the Everest region as it involves walking up and down the mountains and goes pretty high in altitude. You definitely have to be in good physical fitness along with strong mental toughness.
Although you need a good level of physical fitness to be able to trek to Everest, you do not need to take any special training. However, a regular preparation for at least six months before the trek starts is highly advisable. You can go for regular jogging, short hiking trips – up and down the hill if possible, cardio workout and workout on improving overall fitness.
Apart from physical fitness, you also need to prepare yourself to survive with just bare essentials in the mountains.
Yes, the trekking will have certain designated days as rest and acclimatization days as we trek up towards the higher elevation. The breaks are designed in accordance with the elevation gain and further days and elevation to go.
As trekking in Nepal is all about traversing up and down the mountains, you will have to walk the trail that goes up and down all the way through. Even the trek that is graded as ‘easy trek’ might feel difficult for some trekkers because of the winding trails up and down the mountains.
But as the trail passes through the wonderfully scenic region and villages along the way, the feeling of difficulty vanishes in the ocean of joy that the mountains and surroundings bring to you.
An exhilarating adventure up in the mountains is for sure on this trek. Apart from that, you can enjoy incredible views of Himalayan vistas including the Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and many other mountains. A wonderful cultural and lifestyle experience of the Sherpa people living in the region is another inspiring attraction that you come along while trekking in the Everest.
As the trek goes to pretty high altitude, anyone, who treks there, is prone to the altitude sickness. However, this risk of altitude sickness can be lessened by drinking enough water; walking on a slow and gradual pace, enjoying the views, taking enough breaks along the walk and practising some breathing exercises.
Getting sick up in the mountains during the trek is certainly not a good thing to happen to anyone. But it happens sometimes and it is good to come prepared to face any situation while doing this adventure trip. If you, unfortunately, get sick up in the mountains, our guide and the team will take the best care of you and take the most appropriate step for your safety. Those steps might include from denying you the further journey up to rescue you by helicopter. But before taking these big and last steps ahead when there are no other alternatives left, your situation will be carefully observed and the best possible will be done to make you able to continue on the journey.
It is always advisable to come prepared for any situation because the high altitude is too unpredictable.
What kind of foods can we get in the mountains?
Although there may not be as many choices of foods in the mountains as in Kathmandu, you will get a food menu with some varieties of foods. However, the famous Nepali dish, Dal Bhat, fills your plate for most of the time and other times you can have food of your choice from the choices available in the menu.
When you are trekking in the mountain, there are three different options for drinking water. First, you can buy bottled water that is safe to drink although price gets more expensive as you trek higher. The second option is to ask the lodge you stay to fill your bottle with boiled water, which might cost you some money. And the third option is to buy water purifying tablets or rod and take it along with your on the trek. You can fill tap water along the trail and you can use the water purifying tablet or rod to turn it into safe drinking water that is the cheapest of all.
