Factors tendering to foster ever-lasting memories during Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek

Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek is obvious to endow hikers with tremendous Everest Region mountain visuals. But no less than mountain vistas, there are abundant other endearing aspects on the EBC trekking route.

Starting with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the landscape and mountain scenery from the chopper’s window appear absolutely appealing. Eminent worldwide for having the most adventurous airport, even the Lukla airport landing is mindblowing in itself. The tiny, sloppy, and short runway with a capacity of 4 airstrip parking at the edge of Dudhkoshi River makes the landing quite exciting.

Thereafter, what makes your Rapid EBC trek redolent is your entry into the world’s highest National Park, Sagarmatha National Park. Protected by the Nepal Army forces, the park lets you occasionally take a glimpse of rare alpine birds and animals. In addition, the parks also host medicinal herbs and other floral species.

Merely the day in Namche Bazaar proffers hikers with the best Sherpa Cultural tours. Be it the visit to Namche Monastery, tasting the local Yak cheese, or meeting up with the legendary Sherpa your initial trekking days of EBC trek in Namche blooms your journey.

The backdrop view of Ama Dablam from Tengboche Monastery quenches your lust for exploring unique to some extent. Proceeding further, the Everest Climbers Memorial Park at Lobuche Pass and Everest Climate and Global Warming Investigation Center are way more pleasing for EBC hikers.

You also have the opportunity to examine formidable vistas of Mt. Everest and surrounding peaks during the hike of Kalapatthar which is the main highest goal of this trek.

  • The base camp of the world's highest mountain (roof of the world).
  • Take on/off in the smallest and most dangerous Lukla gateway to Everest Base Camp.

Big technical issues are not necessary for this trek. If you have a blood disease, lung, and heart problem please consult with your doctor and inform us before booking this trek.

Rapid Everest Base Camp Trek FAQ'S

Ans:

According to the categorized trekking, Shortest Everest Base Camp trekking is considered one of the moderate popular trekking in the world. Although this trek is moderate some of the success to complete whole trekking some of them will suffer to complete by the high altitude.

It is the most popular trekking in the world because of these hundreds of trekkers trekking every day during the high season of trekking. Trekking is an adventure sport. Based on the difficulty of the routes, it requires high motivation and previous experiences.

Some of the treks in Nepal are suitable only for highly experienced trekkers where some routes are suitable for novice trekkers as well. An average fit person with regular training can do most of the treks. Please consult with us if you are concerned about your fitness level.

Ans:

Altitude Sickness, Accommodation, Food, and Weather are some key factors affecting the trek. These are a brief idea of how they may affect you and how we have arranged to minimize these difficulties.

Ans:

Most trekking routes in Nepal are at high altitudes above 3500 meters which are part of the high altitude. Since it is Everest, we will be above 5000m in the Trekking. Trekking at high altitudes is a serious activity especially for those without having previous high altitude experiences.

Drinking lots of water and ascending slowly by catching your breath regularly helps a lot to fight altitude sickness, however, there is no bulletproof plan to prevent altitude sickness at all.

Ans:

During the trekking season, you would be staying at teahouses and hotels on the 3-star level in Kathmandu. Every accommodation is a twin-sharing arrangement. The single supplement, however, will only be offered upon your request and at an extra expense.

However, a single supplement will indeed be provided when hiking if it is offered and accessible at the lodges. Some lower elevation can be fine but the upper elevation might be difficult to give a single room. The accommodation in the city might be two single beds or 1 king-size big bed.

If the guest has a special performance for the room selection please feel free to inform us. We will try to provide you with a special appropriate room during your stay in Nepal. Numerous lodges provided blankets in the rooms but we suggest you bring your own sleeping bag.

During the whole trek, you will be accommodated in lodges no need for camping and a tent. Please do not anticipate luxurious accommodations while you are walking. You must share a hotel with other single travelers if you are traveling alone at a higher altitude (same-sex).

In case we are not able to provide you single supplement we will refund your single supplement charge. We hope you understand the situation of trekking places. Please do not expect high-standard luxury lodges, you are in a remote place. They offer basic rooms for accommodation.

Ans:

During your Rapid EBC trekking period, we will provide all the meals but only breakfast will be given in Kathmandu. Depends your international flight time we will provide you with a farewell or welcome dinner in a typical Nepali local restaurant with a cultural dance show.

During your trek breakfast and dinner will be taken in the lodges where you sleep overnight but lunch takes in the middle of the trekking period. Indian, Italian, Nepalese, and continental food is the choices in the trekking menu provided by the tea houses.

Like noodles, soups, handmade bread, rice items, curries, spaghetti, pizza, egg items, potatoes are available in the mountains. These meals are prepared after your order. Most of the places meats also available but we recommend you not to take them as they are not fresh.

Sometimes unhealthy food affects your body and trekking. Do not expect western meals as you take in the city and in your home. Mission Himalaya Treks And Expeditions PVT LTD gives you full freedom to select your preferred meals from the menu provided by the lodges.

The food and raw materials are locally prepared and taste different than the city. This Trek includes meals on the trek prepared by the lodges means we do not need to carry food for all the major trekking routes of Nepal.

Most lodge-based treks offer foods prepared in the lodges locally however it’s recommended to carry some energy bars and other quick bites as some camps might be longer than the usual waking hours

Best Experience

Birendra took care of us up the mountain to Everest Base Camp and he was a wonderful guide. He was always very considerate in taking us to our accommodations and getting us food and tea time drinks when needed. He also shared good stories and facts about the regions we traveled through and the mountains we saw like Thamserku, Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Pumori. The important thing he was considerate about our health and safety throughout the trek. I would definitely Recommend Birendra for future trek and tour in Nepal.

Climb to Kalapatthar early morning 3 am

Great Trekking Agency and planning for our trekking. The itinerary was really suitable for us because we have no chance of acclimatization and summit successfully. Our guide Suman Dhakal still was amazing and supported us a lot on the trail. We went in very early in the morning for Kalapatthar for climbing so the weather was not pretty good. But we made it very well. Finally, when we reach Kalapatthar we saw all the mountains for some minutes.
