Everest Base Camp Trekking for Beginners

Trekking in Nepal is on the bucket list of many travelers and a visit to Everest Base Camp often tops the list.

The thrill of trekking through the wild and dramatic landscapes of the Khumbu, the thrill of meeting friendly Sherpas, and the reward of reaching the foot of the world's highest mountain—this is the kind of great adventure, and it's no wonder the Everest Base Camp Trek remains our most popular tour.

But you don't have to be an experienced mountaineer to tackle the Everest Base Camp Trek. Here are some examples of how we've made this incredible adventure easy to do, even for beginners

Benefit from experienced guides and porters on your

Everest trek Many treks in Nepal can be done without a guide, but by partnering with Mountain Magic Treks, you can reap the myriad benefits of traveling with an experienced guide and porter.

Your guide can show you many sights along and in the width of the Khumbu, acting as both trekking guide and interpreter of the natural and cultural history that makes this part of Nepal so unforgettable.

And thanks to the efforts of your hardworking porter or porter team, you can enjoy the trek without having to lug all your gear and gear with you. This is just one of the ways Mountain Magic Treks guarantees a beginner-friendly Everest Base Camp trek.

Walk at your own pace Every day on the Everest Base Camp Trekking

One thing beginners sometimes get wrong when trekking in the Himalayas is a matter of pace: all too often, new hikers want to go too fast and go too far. It's far better to travel at your own pace and go as fast as you're comfortable.

Our Everest Base Camp trekking route also allows for ample time for proper acclimatization as you ascend through the heights of Khumbu to reach Namche Bazaar, Tengboche and finally the base camp itself.

Finding a comfortable pace and paying attention to body awareness is one way to ensure that even beginners can successfully climb Everest.

Be sure to pack the essentials in your bag for the Everest Base Camp Trek

Before your trek begins, a Mountain Magic Treks representative will help you figure out what to pack and what is safe to leave at home.

There are a few essentials you need for any treks in the Himalayas:

layered clothing, sunglasses, hat,sunscreen, proper socks and outerwears. But you don't have to pack too much; We provide sleeping bags, down jackets, hiking poles and the necessary emergency equipment. For beginners, it's a great way of not getting stuck on the mountain with a backpack that can quickly become uncomfortably heavy.

Packing smart is important for Everest Base Camp Trek newcomers, and Mountain Magic Treks is ready to help you pack everything you need.

Find a good travel company to book your lifetime memorable adventure trip

When planning a trip with a company or with a group of guides or porters, it is important to choose a good, reliable trekking company for your trip. Your trekking experience also depends on the trekking company. Only Mountain Magic Treks can offer you the best trekking services. To find a reliable trekking company, you need to research their profile, international reputation, Google reviews, social media profiles, TripAdvisor, etc. Check out their team and find out how long they've been on similar trips. Then you decide which trekking company is reliable for you. A good and trusted travel company will have a good relation and connection with each other so that the team will help you in emergency cases during
the trekking and provide you with useful tips and advice that will help you achieve your dream of the trek to Everest Base Camp.

Everest Base Camp Gear Tips

In the event of an injury or illness, only medication can help. Don't expect a healthcare facility in such a high altitude region. Medication is the only way to avoid injury or in the event of an injury. Pack all possible medication and a first aid kit in your bag. If you travel with a trekking company, they carry all the necessary medicines, but you must bring your medicines and first aid with you. Ask the doctors for helpful tips on what gear to bring for the Everest Base Camp trek for beginners

Pack energy bars and chocolate rolls

As the altitude increases, the choice becomes limited and the prices of all kinds of light snacks increase. So if you have extra space or a weight limit, pack energy bars. There are many supermarkets in Kathmandu. There is also a wide range to buy in Lukla and Namche, however the price will be higher than in Kathmandu.

Bring worn out shoes

Only those who are out and about in the high mountains know how much worse blisters can be. If you bring brand new hiking shoes there is a higher risk of blisters so worn shoes are much better and bring plenty of bandages with medication.

Training for the Everest Base Camp Trek

Many people do not exercise before embarking on the Everest Base Camp Trek, but some aerobic exercise, walking, jogging and cycling are highly appreciated a few months before the start of the trek.

Running on the treadmill, hiking up the stairs instead of the elevator at the weekend, shopping on foot instead of driving all make you fit for the hike. Even swimming prepares you for this world-famous trek.

Prepare for a flight cancellation

In order to reach Lukla for small aircraft, mainly twin-engine and Dornier aircraft, the weather must be good enough. By booking the trip, you have already given your consent to put your life in the hands of the weather gods and the skills of the pilots. If the weather is not very good, the flight will be canceled, resulting in having to wait and the next day try to go to the next point by jeep on a very bumpy road and walk a few more days or to pay extra and take a shared helicopter or even relocate your trip to another destination, essentially Annapurna base camp. Be prepared for the above conditions. If the weather is bad after completing the trip, you can wait another day and try to fly away

Don't be afraid to book the trip for the off-season as well

Because many people only hike in high season, the trail and facilities are crowded, sometimes even people are waiting for the suspension bridges, long waits for meals, and waits at the checkpoint are commonplace. If you avoid the peak season, such problems can be easily solved. In addition, hiking in the off-season gives you the feeling of discovering a new path every day. On the way and in the lodges where you sleep you meet very few people. The facilities remain cleaner and the choice is also large.

Travel insurance is a good idea

Since Everest Base Camp is the most popular trek, rescue options are available if covered by your insurance policy. Since the helicopter flight is expensive, they need to be sure that someone will definitely pay for the helicopter. Either you pay or your agency pays or your insurance company pays for the helicopter until someone guarantees the payments the helicopters don't fly. The best way is to prevent diseases. Our motto is the success of your dream trip.
