Example: How Can your Everest base camp trek be Organized
Starting in Lukla the trek will follow the valley of Dudh Kosi river to Sherpas capital Namche Bazaar. Normally this takes two days, and you are likely to take a days rest in this lively village hub, to get used to the height.
The hike continues for two days to Dingboche at 4260 meters, here it is common with a days rest to get further acclimatized. From here it takes additional two days to reach the base camp. The trip will go via Gorakshep which is a "flat" field below Mt Pumori and Kala Patthar.

How will the altitude affect me?
The Everest Base Camp Trek involves going to very high altitude. During the course of your trip you will be spending at least one night above 4000 meters and/or trekking to 5000 metres or above. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatise successfully. Before coming on this holiday you should read the advice on trekking at high altitude. Unless you have previous experience of trekking above 4000 metres you should consult one of our trekking experts before embarking on this holiday. On this trip, we carry a portable altitude chamber (PAC-bag) and/or bottled oxygen for use in emergencies.
