Trekking is not the creepy frightening experience that people envision it to be. One of the most renowned trekking adventures is at Everest Base Camp in Khumbu, Nepal. It is eminent because it really has a ton of fun and ideally these efforts will help you with your future trips and make it only a bit more at ease.
Some profitable tips that we need to impart to any future trekkers to make things easier while trekking.
Bring money USD and Rupees. There are no ATMs in Lukla or Namche Bazaar. Exchange rates are extremely gloomy. So bring rupees with you at any rate $200 worth.
Purchase your gear in Kathmandu – It is important to go along with your gear such as trekking poles, caps, gloves, socks, down coats, sleeping bags and so forth for trekking. You can as well buy these gears at Kathmandu. There are great quality stores that sell great deals. All that you could need to climb Everest Base Camp is accessible. If you need it or forgot it, you can get at Nepal.
Bring chocolate, tea and any treats that you want– This is an imperative tip for you! Pringles and chocolate and tea are exceptionally costly on Everest; having your own little supply for treats is pleasant. Some of the time when there is rise in altitude, the main thing that feels great is chocolate or tea. It is a smart thought to have some with you and you can purchase it in Kathmandu.
Bring a water purifier or tang to add flavor to water – Tang or water purifier aid the enhancement of your water. You may get tired of drinking water and you need to stay hydrated at altitude. Flavored water helps you to drink more and is significantly more enjoyable than drinking ordinary water constantly. Simply fill your jar with water as you go anywhere and purify it yourself with water purifier and add tang.
Bring two sets of sunglasses. At high altitude, the possibility to have snow blindness is high. Don’t take the risk of not having anything to protect your eyes.
The best outlooks are in the morning – The clouds roll in rapidly and obscure the panoramas, so take your photographs early. You can see Everest from a few points on the Everest Base Camp trek. From Namche Bazaar and at Tengboche are two wonderful destinations. Take your photographs early and keep the memories forever.
Take as much time as necessary. It is not a race and no one is judging how fast you get up the hill. Adapt as fast as possible, drink a lot of water and in the event that you have to take an additional rest day. No one is going to ask you to what extent it took you to get to Everest Base Camp, they are simply going to be stunned that you did it. Your aide and porter wouldn’t agonize if you hire them for an additional day or two. They will be happy for the work. Treks are pliable on Everest if you book in Kathmandu or when you reach Lukla.
Give yourself a couple of days after the trek before you fly home. Flights may be postponed for few days close to the end of trek. Don’t get stuck in Lukla for days waiting with no way forward. Prepare ahead and give yourself few days after the trek.
