Since humans first reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1953, the way to climb the highest mountain in the world has changed radically. Today, every year, hundreds of climbers launch into the business thanks to a refinement of the preparation, technology and equipment by the commercial expeditions that lead those who are willing to take risks and have a wide availability on the roof of the world. economic.

Where is Everest located?
Mount Everest – in Nepalese Sagarmatha and Tibetan Chomolungma – is located on the border between Nepal and Tibet, on the highest point of the Himalayas. Although reaching the highest peak in the world is a difficult and potentially deadly task – due, for example, to the extreme altitude, the presence of avalanches and ice falls – the mountain is rather close to the Equator, at about 28 degrees north latitude, just like Tampa, Florida.

In continuous growth
Earth science scholars estimate that Everest is between 50 and 60 million years old: a young mountain, by geological standards. The summit yes
is formed due to the thrust of the Indian tectonic plate against the Eurasian one. This force still acts today and makes Everest grow about six millimeters each year.

Hostile environment
At nearly nine kilometers of altitude, on the summit of Everest there is about a third of the atmospheric pressure existing at sea level, which significantly reduces the ability of mountaineers to breathe a sufficient amount of oxygen. For this reason, scientists have established that the human body is not able to remain above the six kilometers of altitude for a long time. As mountaineers climb the mountain and the amount of oxygen is reduced, their body is exposed to an increasingly high risk of incurring a series of problems, such as pulmonary edema, cerebral edema and embolism . At a similar height, the risk of freezing incredibly increases, as the heart works harder by beating faster and increasing the flow of oxygen to the tissues, which comes first to the vital organs, then to the peripheral areas of the body.

          Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

  • Mount Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light rucksack. In some days we might even need to walk for 7 to 8 hours. Walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness, have a positive attitude and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly is good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform us before booking the trek. We also recommend that you consult your doctor(s) before the trip.Note: Since we were visiting in the Himalayas/mountains no specific vaccines is required.
  • Meals
  • During our trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food as well the more common international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be served from the tea-house or from a lodge menu where we spend the night whereas lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu. You could bring some chocolates and bars as well for extra diet while trekking.
  • Travel Insurance
  • It is a condition upon joining any of Spiritual Excursion’s trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

     Acclimatization This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.

Day 03: Fly to Lukla (35 min) and trek to Phakding (2652m). 3-4 hrs

Ideally, we will arrive in Lukla between 7 – 9 am, so that you can have breakfast and start walking mostly down hill for a relaxed walk on your first day.  The total hike should take 3-5 hours, depending on if you will travel to Phakding or Monjo.  If you go to Phakding (2,650m/8,694ft) it will be about 3 hours walking and if you are going to Monjo (2,850m/9,350ft) it will take approximately 5 hours.  If we are going to Monjo, we will have lunch in Phakding and then continue onto Monjo, arriving in the afternoon.

Make sure you keep well hydrated; drinking 3 to 4 liters of water a day is essential all the way through the trek. 9km/ 5.6 miles to Phakding or Monjo will be 13km/ 8.8 miles

Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m). 6-7 hrs

For the first couple of hours you will get to cross some of the famous suspension bridges, while gradually moving up-hill towards the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park, the official entrance to the Everest Region.  You continue down hill on for a short time before it levels out to flat ground on mixed terrain. The trail then follows the river to the final high suspension bridge before you begin the long ‘Namche Hill’, which can take 2 hours, to reach the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar. The total for today’s trekking is usually 6 hours long with plenty of breaks and rest along the way. From Phakding to Namche is 11.3 km/ 7.02 miles

Day 05: Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar.

Today is one of our acclimatization trek days.  As you trek up behind Namche Bazaar, the trail is quite steep and you can feel the lack of oxygen while you ascend 460m/1,509ft to Shangbouche Airport, then cross the runway and head another 100m/ 328ft up to Shangbouche Hill at 3,900m/ 12,795ft.

After ascending out of Namche, the first 2 hours are relaxed walking, traversing the left hand side of the valley, high above the valley floor.  The trail then descends down toward the river for our lunch stop.  From here it will take 2 – 3 hours to hike up the long hill to the town of Tengbouche. This is a gradual but long ascent and the total time will be 5/6 hours of hiking today. 12km/ 7.5 miles

From Tengbouche, we will travel to Dingbouche, at 4,400m/ 14,436ft.  The trail starts down-hill and continues very gradually up and down hills before crossing the river and gradually head up hill towards Pangbouche for lunch (Pangbouche was one of the villages on the trail that suffered most from the recent earthquakes), which usually takes 2-3 hours. From there it is a gradual up-hill trek towards the Imja Valley looking towards Island Peak and an hour later arriving in Dingbouche. The total trekking time today will be 5 to 6 hours. 12km/ 7.5 miles

Day 08: Acclimatization day

Today, we spend another night in Dingbouche to further the acclimatization process. From here we will aim to reach the height of 4,900m/ 16,076ft, gaining 500m/1,640ft, in this acclimatization trek which should take approximately 3 hours.  We will enjoy the views and rest for about 30-45 min. at the high point before dropping back down for lunch and an afternoon of relaxing. 3km/ 1.86 miles and 500m/ 1,640ft of ascent and descent.

Day 09: Dingboche to Lobuche (4828m). 5-6 hrs

This stretch usually takes 2 hours and after lunch, from Dugla to Lobuche, will be an additional 3 hours with plenty of rest stops.

After a good night rest in Gorak Shep, those who feel ready and able, will wake up very early and hike up Kala Phattar to see the sun rise over Everest. This is a difficult 3 hour up-hill hike which is very hard work, but well worth it for the amazing views of Everest in the early morning.
