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

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
- Nausea and vomiting
- 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.
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
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.

Best guide ever!from AustraliaMay 4, 2023Damu, our guide had been well organised throughout our trek. The communication was excellent-very prompt to reply with all our enquiries. Damu showed the us the beauty of the mountains and it’s people. Damu took care of us from the beginning until we got back safely to Kathmandu and ensured we were safe to our trip back home. Our trek to EBC was the best adventure I’ve experienced by far! It was tough but well worth it. I highly recommend this trekking company and i will sure use them again for my future Nepal treks! :)Date of Experience: May, 2023
A wonderful trip with a wonderful bunch of people and now some memories for lifetimefrom IndiaMarch 30, 2023The 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.Date of Experience: March, 2023

Once-in-a-lifetime trip!from TaiwanFebruary 26, 2023It's a spectacular trip, and hard to describe the experience unless you were there. I'm fortunate to have Damu as my trekking guide, which I didn't know when I booked this trip online in advance. I'm very grateful that we eventually made it to the EBC(Everest Base Camp) after going through a strong sandstorm and drizzle snowing in late December. Damu is a well-trained local with rich trekking experiences in the Himalayas; he speaks English, communicates well, and is reliable. He will be the guy taking care of you in the Himalayas.Date of Experience: December, 2016
