A Typical Trekking Day While we are in trekking our day starts with warm wake up tea/coffee. After refreshing ourselves, we pack our luggage and proceed for the breakfast. As day sets off, considering the altitude and acclimatization, we walk slowly towards our next destination. The group will be guided and accompanied by our trained government licensed holder guide. Throughout the day, we will take frequent rest breaks to take photographs, treasure the landscape, confront the culture and admire the fascinating mountains and sceneries. A 1 to 2 hour relaxing lunch break is usually taken except when crossing the passes. After the lunch break, we will at least spend 2 to 3 hours more on the trail before reaching the next lodge. Before the dinner, we might enjoy a short walk through the local village, photographing etc. After the dinner, you will be briefed for the next day program by our guide and sleep.

Trekking Group For the Everest Trekking, normally we will provide one Government license holder trekking guide and require Sherpa porters for luggage carrying (2 trekkers: 1 porters). We organize Everest Base Camp trekking for any group size. But generally it is better to have a maximum 20 people for successful trip. If we would like to make the group size more than 20 people together, Global Holidays Adventure can arrange the trip successfully.

Health and Experience Requirements Everest Trekking is a moderate trekking suited for all those passionate walkers who have ability to walk at least 5 to 6 hours in a day. Some days even we need to walk 7 to 8 hours. Walking in high altitude is really difficult so it is more physically demanding then walking in the lower altitude. However if Traveler have excellent health condition and fatness, self-confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish the trip successfully.


We recommended that regularly exercising and jogging for some we is better for trekking. No experience and any technical skill is required for this trip.

Travel Insurance While traveling in the Himalaya you may suffer for the various health problems, injuries and even the altitude sickness. Hence traveler have to prepare before upcoming destination is this mountain land. Make that the policy of the insurance company should cover the process of giving you the service of Helicopter rescue from the mountains in case of Altitude Sickness or other accidents during your trip.

Best Seasons Autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May) are the best season for the Everest Base camp Trekking. The weather is perfect in this season. The sunny day is outstanding for the clear mountain views. Winter (December to February) is also the good season but only the Issue is cold. Trekking in summer or monsoon (June to August) will be affected by rain. SO this is not the particular season for the trekking.

Altitude Sickness Travelling in Himalaya Altitude sickness is the main problem. Normally it occurs from altitude over 3000 meters. Due to the high altitude Everest base Camp trekking is also the risk trekking route for altitude sickness. We ensure minimal risk by building in rest days into our trekking itineraries. Most people will feel some effect of altitude, shortness of breath and possibly light headed, which is fairly common. Acute mountain sickness is very different and normally involves a severe headache, sickness and loss of awareness. The safety of our clients is taken very seriously at Global Holidays Adventure. We ask all our clients to submit a copy of his or her insurance prior to the departure, so that we can proceed with the evacuation when necessary.
