The trekking season for EBC runs from mid-September to May however October is traditionally the most popular time for this trek, when the views are good and the temperatures are not too extreme. But we also get many travelers enjoying the cold winter season (Dec/Jan) when views can be crystal clear. But one need to prepare themselves with right clothes for low temperatures though we provide you good quality of down jacket and sleeping bags to keep you cozy and warm.
We don’t specify detailed training programs, as it is difficult to recommend one general programme that applies to each individual. The training you should do to prepare for your Everest Base Camp trek depends on your current level of fitness and any medical conditions. We suggest that you exercise a minimum of 5 times per week for one hour each time doing activities such as hill walking, cycling, running and strength work.
If a fellow trekker in your group has to descend, then an assistant guide would go with them. We have lots of support staff on the trek, so the person descending would be well looked after and it wouldn’t impact on the rest of the group’s experience. Emergencies are dealt with by the guide, and depending on the severity, in a serious case evacuation would be by helicopter.
There are no nights at Everest Base Camp on this trek. Instead you will stay at Gorak Shep from where you walk to Base Camp. To sleep at Everest Base Camp requires special permits which are very expensive. So it is better to stay at Gorak Shep and walk into Base Camp for a day trip.

I did a 3 day hike and had a fantastic time! Nimesh took care of everything and was able to arrange last minute permits for my trip. All was organized perfectly and I had a very good guide that adapted to my walking speed, explained me about the plants and animals and answered all my questions about the Nepalese culture. I can definitely recommend TapoBhumi!
