Drinking water 

Water is an essential part of your trek. You need to drink plenty of water during your.  Most of the diseases during your trek are caused by drinking impure water. However it is not that the water in the mountain region is impure. It is natural and clean the people there consume it direct from the tap. But, since you are not used to you may get directly affected and consuming water direct from the tap might ruin your trek. Here are the tips for consuming water during Everest Base Camp Trek.

1. Mineral Water/ Bottled water.

Mineral water or Bottled water is available at most of the tea houses. The bottled water costs normally 1 Dollar per liter. If you find it in any tea houses it is better to carry an extra bottle because it may not be available anywhere during the trek. 

2. Boiled Water

Drinking boiled water is probably the best method while trekking in the mountains. It is highly effective treatment for killing the bacteria from the water. You can boil the water in the tea house and carry it along with you during the trek. The tea hoses charges normally one to two dollars to boil the water. 

3. Purified Water.

You can bring your own water purification tablets like Aquatabs®, Chlorine tablets, Bhromine Tablets along with you. It helps to save your budget as well.

4. Filtered Water.

You can also use filtered water as well during your Everest Base Camp Trek.  This can be an alternate where boiling is not preferred and also there is not any availability of other purified water. The filters like hand pump are effective in removing protozoa, bacteria and chemicals/toxins from the water but may not be effective removing the viruses.

No prior training and experience is required to do Everest Base Camp Trek. But, if you have trekking experience anywhere in the world then it can be an added point to your trek to Everest Base Camp. If you can walk up to 6-7 hours a day in an unfamiliar terrain then you can easily trek to Everest Base Camp. It is better if you start taking energy boosting diets and doing some physical exercise a month before the trek. All you need to have is strong willingness and ability to overcome the challenges.

Staying Healthy 

Staying healty and fit is very important when you are trekking to one of the most strenuous trekking destinations. You need to be very careful about your health and health related problems. Here are the following tips you can use to stay healthy during Everest Base Camp Trek.

• Eat proper and healthy diets.

• Avoid eating meat and meat products more often.

• Drink a lot of water.

• Don’t drink water direct from the resources or without purifying.

• Starting exercising a month prior to the trek.

• Take your regular medicines with you. 

Take Care of your Feet.

Taking care of your feet is a must when you are going on a trek. Not taking proper care of your feet can ruin your trek. To take care proper care of your feet the following tips might be helpful.

• Buy good quality comfortable shoes.

• Clip Your Toenails

• Apply Powders/Creams/Tapes

• Wear the Right Socks

• Wash your feet regularly.

• Soak your feet for at least 10- 20 minutes at the end of the day.

Getting a Good Night Rest

As it is said ‘Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy and wise’, getting a proper goodnight sleep is very important for everyone. During the trek since your body gets tired after walking all day long a proper sleep is a must. You need to sleep for at least 7-8 hours. A good night sleep helps your body to take rest and recollect the energies that you’ve lost during your trek. For a better sleep we recommend you to carry a sleeping bag with you. The sleeping bag will be provided by the company or you can carry your own if you have. Sleeping Bag is necessary especially when you are trekking to Everest Base Camp because since only basic accommodations are available the blankets might not be enough for you. 

Acclimatization & Sickness.

Acclimatization is very important when you are trekking to an altitude of more than 3500m.  Proper acclimatization helps to reduce the chances of Altitude Sickness. The itinerary is designed with proper acclimatization that will help your body to adopt the lower oxygen content in the air. Once you reached an altitude of 5000m the oxygen content in the air is less than 50% than that of the sea level. One of the main causes of altitude sickness is staying too long at high altitude without proper acclimatization. If in case you suffer from altitude sickness, the guides will notice the symptoms and then drop you to the lower altitude immediately. You have to inform to your guide if you notice any discomfort or symptoms of AMS. Major altitude sickness might need emergency helicopter rescue so make sure your travel insurance covers all the risk including helicopter rescue. 

Note: If you suffer from altitude sickness in the mountain and still want to continue the trek then you can directly call to the office or ask you guide to call to office and make arrangements. In such case you may have to stay at the mountains for some extra days so we suggest you to have at least three extra days than your trek schedule. We charge $70 for extra days in the mountains. Since, there are several groups trekking from the company it is possible for you to join another group during peak seasons. However, it might not be possible during off season and you may have to pay extra charge for the porters and guide.

Nepal Travel Tips

Choosing Nepal as your travel destination is one of the best decision that one has to take once in a life. As Nepal offers you so many wonderful travel destinations, fun, adventures and much more once in Nepal is not enough but you have to be well planned and informative about your activities in Nepal before you take off. Nepal is naturally and culturally diverse country and has its distinct identity to the world. Here are some of the travel tips which may help you before you plan your trip for Nepal. 

How to enter Nepal?

You can fly to Nepal from your nearest international airport or you can fly to India and get a direct bus to Kathmandu. Many countries now have a direct flight to Kathmandu. During peak tourist season the tickets gets expensive in this case you can book your ticket early or another cheap option is to fly to India and get a bus or flight.

Get a visa or be prepared for queues at the Airport

Nepalese visa can be obtain at Tribhuvan International Airport on arrival but don’t expect it that easy in peak tourist seasons. You will have to queue for a long time and complete certain procedures, pay fee and then you will get your visa. It is better if you get your visa from an embassy before coming to Nepal. And you might have to wait to collect your baggage for an hour minimum depending the time of your arrival.

Kathmandu’s Pollution “Sorry to share “

Kathmandu being a capital of Nepal is also one of the most populated cities in the world. Nepal is a beautiful country but you may find the capital city a bit different than the rest of Nepal. It’s not that Kathmandu is the worst city but also not as better as the areas you will visit. Because it is the capital of Nepal and major hub for the people all over Nepal you can see the chaos of people in the market areas and because a lot of construction works are going on you may find the city polluted. So, we advise you to wear a mask while roaming around the city.   

UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

 Once you visit in Nepal don’t forget to visit the UNESCO world heritage sites and do make your itinerary accordingly. The heritages sites are full of history, fine arts, cultures and crafts and you won’t regret visiting it.  There are numbers of world heritage sites in Nepal rich in art and cultures which are very important to be taken care of not only for Nepal but for the whole world. The major sites inside Kathmandu valley are Pashupatinath Temple, Soyambhunath Stupa (monkey temple), Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Changunarayan Temple and many more. Visiting the UNESCO world heritage site is a must if you are visiting Nepal. 

Don’t Drink Tap Water 

Nepalese are used to drinking water directly from the tap or any sources of water so they don’t get affected. But it is better if you avoid drinking water directly from the tap or any except boiled and bottled mineral water because you are not used to it and it may affect your health. After all ‘Prevention is better than Cure’. 

Foods in Nepal 

Along with so many adventures and exciting travel destinations, Nepal also offers you with so many varieties of delicious cuisines. Do try varieties of foods while travelling to Nepal and give your taste buds a different and a unique taste. You will also find numbers of restaurants serving international cuisines and have the pleasure of trying world famous dishes in Nepal. 

Electricity and Internet in Nepal 

The electricity problem has been improving in context of few years ago but still there might be load shedding. The hotels have inverter and generators so there might not be problem in city areas. To stay connected via internet you can buy the local Sim- card. The internet facilities have been improving in Nepal you can get wifi in almost all of the hotels and cafes but the speed might not be as per your expectations but works satisfactory. 

Safer to travel with an agency in Nepal 

It is not that riskier to travel alone as we see numbers of solo travelers along the streets but if you travel with an agency it is much more comfortable and safer for you. You will not need to worry about documentations, accommodations, transportation and many more. There is also very less chance of getting lost or theft. After all ‘Prevention is better than cure’.  

Contribute to the Locals.

As Nepal is a developing country the per capita income of the people here is very lower than other many countries. If you are travelling to the remote areas then we suggest you to stay in home stays. As it is the source of income for most of the people and your small contribution will help to boost up the local economy.
