Talking about the journey, "the Everest base camp trek is more than reaching the lap of Mt. Everest. It is about the journey, the hurdles you overcome to reach this point, the lessons you learn, the intimate moments you had with locals, and above all, the way you push yourself regardless of all the odds."

Is this trip right for you?

To know whether the Everest base camp trek 14 days is the right package for you or not, ask yourself, can you walk 6 hours a day for 11 days during the trek? Are you fit enough? Can you endure the limited services and remoteness of the region? Can your body keep up with the altitude changes? Can you adjust in basic lodge and meals? Asking these questions yourself will give you a clear picture of the trek.

Difficulty & altitude sickness

Everest base camp trek 14 days' difficulty is moderate. Beginner trekkers can do this trek under proper guidance. The trek involves 5 to 6 hours of walking on a daily basis on rough terrain. The trail has many ascents and descents, therefore you have to be fit. Likewise, once you go above 4,000 meters, the services get minimal, and isolation of the region may begin to affect you.

As it is a high-altitude trek, there is a risk of altitude sickness. We have ample acclimatization days in our Everest base camp trek itinerary that ensures a safe journey. Even if you get altitude sickness during the trek, the guide will give you first aid. Some of the symptoms you should be careful of are headache, breathing problems, insomnia, loss of appetite, nausea, etc.


To prepare for the Everest base camp trek, you have to work on your physical fitness and endurance. Even though it is considered a beginner-friendly trek, the hurdles cannot get unseen. During the trek, you have to deal with basic services, high altitude, and the remoteness of the region along with rugged terrain.
