You can do the Everest base camp Trek during December & January also but you should face colder temperatures than in the best season.

Wi-Fi during EBC Trek - 14 Days 

Most of the trekkers want to know that either there is WI–Fi available on Everest Base Camp Trail or not.  The answer is Yes. Most of the tea house has Wi-FI at an additional cost but if you have a local sim card from Nepal you can use in Lukla, Phakding, Namche, and Tengboche. From Dingboche, you have to use the Everest link. You can buy a Giga bite (GB) with a Card Username and Password then use WI-FI in Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorekshep, and Pheriche.

Altitude Sickness

Everest trek has a high chance of getting Altitude sickness. The symptoms of altitude sickness will occur within 6 to 24 hours of achieving a high altitude. The sickness is fatal and can result in death if not treated in time. You need to stay alert to any of the symptoms that occur.

Symptoms of Altitude sickness

  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Tiredness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Upset stomach
  • Feeling unsteady
  • Shortness of breath
  • Increased heart rate
  • Difficulty sleeping

An effective measure to recover from early AMS

If you happen to notice any of the symptoms, follow the guideline mentioned below-

  • Do not climb any higher for the next 48 hours
  • Descend to a lower altitude if possible
  • Take complete rest until you feel well
  • Do not exercise
  • Do not smoke
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Take external oxygen supply if necessary
  • Take anti-sickness medicines

If you see no improvement in your health within 48 hours, you will have to be immediately deported to the city for medical support.

Preventive Measures

There is no way to train your body prior to trekking so as to adapt to the high altitude. Some ways in which you can prevent it are as follows:

  • Take plenty of rest
  • Ascend slowly and gradually as you reach higher
  • keep yourself hydrated
  • Eat high-calorie food
  • Do not smoke, drink or consume tranquilizing medicines

Insurance

During times of emergencies like acute altitude sickness or a natural calamity, you might have to be immediately deported in a helicopter. The cost of such deportation is covered by travel insurance that needs to be purchased before you start the trek. You should do insurance before starting the trek.

Our 2-week Everest Base Camp trek in November 2023 was an epic journey, and a huge part of that success came down to our incredible guide, Damu (Damodar Mainali). From the moment he met us at the airport, his warmth, professionalism, and knowledge were evident. Damu had a knack for making everyone in our group of six feel instantly comfortable and included. He effortlessly navigated the diverse personalities and backgrounds, fostering a true sense of camaraderie that carried us through the challenging trek. His thorough pre-trek orientation provided us with the confidence and knowledge we needed to tackle the challenges ahead. And even after reaching our goal at Base Camp, Damu was always just a step ahead, anticipating our needs and ensuring our safety and comfort. When I struggled with altitude sickness, Damu was there with practical advice and unwavering encouragement. His presence was a calming constant, making even the most challenging parts of the trek feel manageable. He went extra mile, not only by expertly recommending food choices, supplies, and comfortable tea stall stops along the trek, but also by ensuring everyone's well-being throughout the journey. His explanations of the local culture, history, and landscape were clear, concise, and captivating. No matter how obscure our questions, Damu had an answer, transforming every step of the journey into a fascinating learning experience. Damu wasn't just our guide, he was our friend. His passion for the Himalayas and genuine care for our well-being made the experience truly unforgettable. If you're considering an Everest Base Camp trek, I wholeheartedly recommend booking with Mission Summit Treks & Expedition. Through the passion for mountains, genuine care for the group, I’m pretty sure your journey is not just challenging, but truly enriching.

The EBC Trek may be a wonderful experience, but the whole experience also depends on the guides who accompany you. I was lucky enough to come across Kamal Bhai, Damodar Bhai, DalBahadur Bhai and Kalu Bhai as guides for our trek. Such a wonderful bunch of people who are ready and willing to go out of the line to help you with anything. So professional and yet friendly that I address them as 'Bhai' which means brother. The trip was a grand success and a really fun and emotional one thanks to all the support and organising by these wonderful brothers. I would definitely recommend and opt for Mission Summit Trek and Expedition and if it's any of these guys you're in for a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
