How long do you have to walk during the Everest base camp trek?
The total distance you will cover is around 130 km when you complete the round trip to Everest Base Camp. You need to cover all these distances within 12 days on the standard. But you have various options and you can customize your own itinerary if you feel like you will not be able to complete the trek within 12 days.
The 12-day trek includes three days of acclimatization so that you can adjust to the thin air and lack of oxygen at higher altitudes. The hike to Everest base camp is difficult without these acclimatization days as you need to cover a total of 65 km of distance and hike up to an altitude of 5,500 meters.
How difficult is the trek to the Everest Base Camp?
12 Days Everest Expedition up to Kalapathaar is a moderate trekking journey suitable for all age groups. If you don't have previous trekking experience, you don't need to worry, as you can easily hike to the foot of the world's highest peak Mount Everest without any issues. If you can walk about 2 to 4 hours a day and are used to doing long hiking then the trek is going to be easy for you.
Besides strength and athleticism, the most challenging thing during this trek is altitude sickness. Going unprepared would undoubtedly put a significant obstacle in the way of your goal of arriving at your destination and taking in the breathtaking scenery along the route. There is no cure for altitude sickness; the only option is to return home and try again a few days later.
You should be able to walk for 5 to 6 hours each day while carrying a rucksack weighing about 5 kg. As a result, to participate in the Everest base camp trip, you must be in good physical and mental health.
