FAQ'S

Q. Required experience:

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.

Q. Trek Difficulty:

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.

Q. Altitude Sickness:

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.

Q. Accommodation on the Trek:

You will be staying at 3-star category hotels in Kathmandu and teahouses during the Trekking period. All accommodations are on a twin-sharing basis. However, the single supplement will be provided at your request and will be an additional cost. But during the trekking period, a single supplement will be given if there and available in 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. In the whole trekking, you will be accommodating in lodges no need for camping and a tent. Please do not expect high-standard rooms during your trekking period. If you are a single traveler in the higher elevation you need to share the room with other single trekkers like you (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.

Q. Meals on the Trek?

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
