The things that you need to know for the Lukla- Everest Base Camp Trek

Altitude sickness

As you hike to the high altitude, the amount of oxygen that your body gets becomes less as the atmosphere at the high altitude is very thin. This means you will suffer from muscle fatigue, loss of appetite, and dizziness and if it gets extreme you will also have the hallucination.

And if you are trekking without a porter or a professional guide, the problems of this will get double as there is no one to give you physical as well as mental support.

Even if your altitude sickness goes extreme and you want to get help in the form of a helicopter to take you to the hospital in the middle of the treks, then the cost can range anywhere from USD 5000 to USD 10000. And isn't it simply breaking your bank?

So in this case, your insurance will cover any portions of it. But carry some medicine and if you discover symptoms of altitude sickness or feel uneasy walking then share everything with your guide so that they can help you on time and try to take good acclimatization and rest day at the altitude.

Sign/Symptoms

  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Severe Headache
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficult for breathing
  • Problems in sleeping

Preventative measures:

  • At least drink 4- 5 litres of water to keep your body hydrated.
  • Avoid alcohol – it easily makes you dehydrated, stay far from tobacco, and don't intake medications like Sleeping pills while trekking at high altitudes like Everest Base Camp.
  • Avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours when you saw the sign and symptoms of altitude sickness.
  • Follow the principle: climb high and sleep low, to stay far from altitude sickness if you climb around 1000 per day then make sure to come down and rest at the lower altitude.
  • Avoid meat and only consume the balanced diet food of local and traditional cuisine including Dal Bhat which is very rich in protein and increases your strength to walk the altitude.
  • Carry some chocolates and a bar to increase your strength and provide you with the extra energy to hike in altitude.
  • If you feel difficult, or uncomfortable, feel or identify the sign and symptoms of altitude sickness immediately share them with your friends or your professional guide and move you to the lower altitude as fast as possible.

Accidents

Accidents are part of life, everyone faces them as they can take place anytime and anywhere but the probability of these accidents increases when you are trekking in challenging regions such as Everest region (Everest Base Camp Trek).

Good trekking books and rap will help you to drip and enjoy the comfortable walk and make your trekking a pleasurable experience despite from this you might slip or pull your muscle and when you are hiking down from the mountains your muscle sprains go worse than that.

No doubt you might also be someone who gets thrilled and scared about trekking in the unpopular trail and remote area. Though it is not recommended, there might be a rock where you cut yourself open and losing the blood means losing energy while hiking at a high altitude.

Then, in this case, your travel insurance will come in very helpful in such accidents taking place while trekking to Everest Base Camp.

Illness

There is also some other illness except altitude sickness that you have to consider while trekking to the Everest Base Camp. if you are careless or if you are not careful with your drinking water or don't pay attention to your hygiene and problems like Diarrhea then it will spoil your trek also such sanitation problems will cause Dehydration in your body which might turn out to be fatal in the high altitudes. Then it this cause your travel insurance will help to care for such illness.

Flight cancellation

Flight can be cancelled for a variety of reasons. Very worse and bad conditions can lead way to the cancellation of the flight. Other problems also include some maintenance problems in the flight insert or problems in the runway and many others.

Besides these, there will generally be two different flights you will take. One of them will be your international flight while the other will be the domestic flight you take to Lukla Airport, the airport in the Everest Base Camp region.

If you face problems during the flight your flight cancellation insurance will help you to recover your losses so make sure that your insurance covers the international flight, domestic flight or both of them.

Lukla - Everest Base Camp Trekking Accommodation:

There are several resorts and hotels, lodges, tea houses and ca,p sites in the region that offers modern amenities.

Here I have a detailed explanation about the accommodation you will likely have during the trek:

Accommodation at Lukla

Most people prefer to hike straight to Phakding after having a flight to Lukla. But few choose to spend the rest of the day at Lukla because of its beautiful mountain views and plenty of good hotels. Although they are a little more expensive than the lodges you will get the best services with the good facilities than tea houses.

Accommodation at Phakding

After Lukla, Pkhading is the next stop you will spend overnight. It is the small villages which come passing the Dudh Koshi River valley north of Lukla and south of Monjo. Manly trekkers choose to spend their nights at Pkhading over Lukla because it offers affordable and accessible accommodation services with enough hotels. If you are a budget traveller, then this is the best stop with a more comfortable option.

Accommodation Manjo

Trekkers also tend to choose Manjo skipping Phakding for their accommodation. After crossing the villages including Gumela, Toyok, Bengkar, and Tawa from Phadking we reach our overnight stop. You will see very affordable and accessible accommodation services out here.

Accommodation at Namche Bazar.

Namche Bazaar is the famous stop of the Everest Base Camp trek. It is a popular stop as many trekkers are likely to spend 2-3 days enjoying the beauty and adjusting to the atmospheric pressure.

Namche has more to offer and is worth exploring, hike to the viewpoint above the village to see the first glimpse of the world's iconic peak Mt. Everest. Far from the beauty, this place has some luxury hotels and the best tea houses with great facilities and services. You will have a wide variety of tea houses from Luxury to basic.

Accommodation at Tengboche

Tengboche is the next popular stop during the Everest Base Camp Trek. This small village is famous for the Tengboche monastery. The place has barely 5 hotels you may have to spend your night at the basic teahouses with basic facilities. Even the few tea houses provide a room attached with bathrooms and hot showers, or you have to walk distance for the bathroom and hot shower.

Most of the trekkers prefer staying overnight at Tengboche so that they can attend morning prayers at the monastery.

Accommodation at Dingboche

Dingboche is a beautiful Sherpa village which offers a wide range of lodges and teahouses than Tengboche, this place also has a bakery and internet café facilities around. Most trekkers spend 2 days so that they can adapt to high-altitude atmospheric pressure.

Accommodation at Lobuche

Lobuche is the last stop in the tea house, their village offers limited tea houses and hotels. But the accommodation you get here is quite basic. During peak time, it can be even harder to find the basic tea houses so to avoid this you have to book the room in advance so that you don’t need to share your room with strangers.

Accommodation at Gorakshep

Gorakshep is your last stop during your ascend, it is always crowded. In terms of accommodation, it is average here. Lodges offer basic facilities. It's hard to get a room here so you might end up sleeping in the dining room or spending your night in the tent.

Tips to Follow and Remember:

  • Never trek alone, hire a local guide if you can’t find a companion.
  • Camping inside the Sagarmatha National park should be made only in designed areas.
