This is something very important for EBC trek enthusiastic I am going to share in this article, which is How to plan Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary? If EBC trek is holding up on your bucket list for a long time this is finally a time to mark out as I am going to share very helpful tips here that makes you just fly to Nepal right away.
12 days in EBC trek
This is one of the popular itineraries as a lot of trekking agency prefer this itinerary for the EBC trek with 2 rest days in Namche and Dingboche. Ideally, this itinerary is suitable if you already have an experienced trekking in the high altitude before The main challenges here comes the altitude, if you are fresh up in hiking I would certainly not going to recommend EBC in 12 days. You need to alert at least 14 days to give you enough acclimatisation.
14 days EBC Trek Itinerary (Recommended)
If you planning at least 2 more days in the mountain giving enough acclimatisation for your body before reaching high altitude this is ideal for if you are fresh start up hiker. If you haven’t been in the high altitude before but willing to see Everest Base Camp I suggest to plan for 14 days with 4 days acclimatisation. Something to remember Everest Base Camp trek in one of the high rated altitude sicnness trek in Nepal. I have seen a lot of experience hiker were airlifted in Kathmandu due to the high altitude sickness.
