Who is Eligible for Everest Base Camp Trek?
Everest Base Camp has always been the legendary trail for those who seek adventurous thrills at high altitude. This is one of the most famous trekking choice in the world. Walking the rugged foothills just below the soaring Everest along with stunning views of other giant mountains is probably a lifetime experience for anyone. The landscapes and breathtaking high mountains will definitely leave a remarkable impression on your mind.
Many people think about its difficulty level before deciding to embark on this epic journey. Well, we understand your concern. Because, EBC is loacated at an altitude of 5364m and trekking to this altitude from Lukla which is loacated at 2860m is not everyone’s cup of tea. All those jagged and craggy trails are going to test your physical as well as mental determination. Trekking for 5-6 hours a day continuously for 13-14 days on such trail is definitely difficult but not impossible. You just need to have a good and fit physical health and of course, patience is required in any journey you begin.
Basically, if you are an outgoing person and do running, cycling, hiking or any other physical activites quite often then trek to Everest Base Camp will not really be hard on you. Besides, if you are physically an inactive person and if you have any disease or if you are suffering from anything then that might be an obstacle in your trek. Since, this trek requires an extra amount of energy, if you cannot deliver it, we suggest you to be ready and fit first. For that, you can start exercising, start running in the mornings, start sticking to a healthy diet or go cycling or anything that will help you to achieve this trek successfully.
