everest base camp packing list - duffel bag

What to pack on the Everest base camp trek?

Everest base camp trek is a lodge-to-lodge trek. It is also known as a teahouse trek. It means that you will not be required to sleep in camping tents and most of the facilities like laundry, food, etc. are easily available throughout the trek. However, you need to carry some of the most essential items that you will personally require during the trek. As Everest base camp trek is considered quite challenging, we recommend packing only the necessary gears and required equipment. Make sure that you don’t over-pack, and at the same time don’t under-pack.

In order to enjoy the trip rather than worry about the weight of your load, you need to pack light only with the essentials. Read the complete Everest base camp trek packing list and pack smart and light for a more comfortable and a fulfilling trip to the base camp.

FAQs

The short Everest Base Camp trek is a moderate/demanding trek that does not require any technical expertise of mountaineering. It is basically a long hike up to the altitude of 5,364 meters / 17,599 feet. The trek is only grueling because of its duration of 12 days hike up and down the hill across diverse terrains (14 days including arrival and departure).

A short answer is yes! Many hikers who have trekked to Everest base camp in the past were smokers. But, for obvious reasons it is better that you quit smoking before gearing up for the trek. The oxygen levels at high altitudes begin decreasing which may cause difficulty in breathing. However, if it is hard for you to quit, then as long as you are in good overall health, it should be fine for you to do the trek.

Generally, ascending the mountainous trail higher than 2,700 meters (8,858 feet) will increase the possibilities of getting altitude sickness. Above this altitude, we always recommend our clients not to ascend more than 500 meters (1,640 feet) in a single day’s hike. Even if you try to proceed an extra 100 meters (328 feet), your chances of getting hit by altitude sickness will escalate. And, this instruction is applicable to people of all ages.

Well, the answer to this question would be yes and no! We recommend acclimatization days, especially when you are hiking at altitudes more than 8,000 feet. Although acclimatization days will increase the number of trip days, it is very crucial that you allow your body to adjust to the new environment, lest you fall prey to the low oxygen levels in the atmosphere. Acclimatization will help your body slowly adapt to lower oxygen levels thereby reducing chances of being hit by any of the mountain sicknesses. So, as a bottom line, we recommend you not to skip your acclimatization days at all.

You have options to complete your Everest base camp trek in a shorter time if you are willing to spend some more money. One option is to trek up to Everest base camp and then fly back on a helicopter, either up to Lukla or Kathmandu. Another option is to first fly to the base camp and then return to Lukla trekking. But, we do not recommend the latter option as you will be exposed to a very high altitude which has a high chance of making you sick. Besides these, you can cut down on your acclimatization days, which is another thing that we do not recommend at all.
