            Best Seasons for Everest Base Camp Trek 5 Days

            The best time to visit Everest Base Camp is the seasons like spring and autumn, which implies the months of September, October, November, March, April, and May. During these months, the weather and climate remain clear and overall outlook remains more visible and accurate. Gazing sunlight also does not harm the body much, as it remains at a moderate level (sometimes higher). There will be less fear of having high colder as the temperature remains adjustable in those months. Flora blossoming and fauna dancing will also add more spur in these periods of time.

            Freedom of panorama

            Everyone has the right to take photograph and photo of the things and place that they admire. But there also resides some places like temples, monuments, gompas, etc. where cameras (and taking photographs) are not allowed because of the country’s personal norms and values. So that should be respected. Most importantly, it is must ask the respective guide, porters, or locales in order to know about these restrictions and unavailability.

            Clothes

            It is important to be known about the clothes that should be carried during the trek aka helicopter tour. As this journey hails to the highest mountain in the world and its base camp, of course, there will be cool weather. So it is recommended to have warm, waterproof, windproof, and extra pairs of clothes, in order to prevent body fragileness. Helicopter tour does not need much more clothes as in trek. So you can minimize your clothing sense to the trekking part only.

            Cash

            It is always a must to carry extra bucks which can be used anytime anywhere. Also, ATM service is available in city areas but is rare in Himalayan areas, so typical currency is to be carried. Shopping, bar bills, extra accommodation facilities, and more can be put under control with the help of it.

            Shopping and laundry

            Laundry service is available in city areas but not in the mountain. So, it can be a problem for some. Dark clothes and sweat absorbents should be taken with self to prevent it to some extent. Shopping can be done any places whether it is the city like Kathmandu and also in Himalayan places like Lukla and Namche Bazaar. Most importantly, laundry and shopping should be done as a personal expense and the company’s cost includes do not embrace that in the list.

            Altitude Sickness During 5 Days Trek To Everest Base Camp

            Altitude sickness is of three types: acute (mild) altitude or mountain sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), and High-altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE). All these are occurred because of the decrease in oxygen inhaling volume. Medicines like acetazolamide (Diamox and Diamox Sequels) and/or dexamethasone (AK-Dex and Ocu-Dex) are recommended to carry in order to reduce the impact of altitude sickness if occurs during the trek.

            Humble Attitude

            Humble attitude means learning about some gestures that can be used in order to have some impact during the trek and helicopter tour. Some words like ‘Namaste’, ‘hello’, ‘how are you – k cha halkhabar’, ‘’welcome - swagatam’, ‘thank you - dhanyabaad’, etc. are some humble gestures that can be learned and used.

            Acrophobia

            Some people may have a fear of height. So such situations should be mentioned previously during trip booking. Counseling and motivation will be provided in order to inspire you for conquering your fear.

              Best EBC 5 Days Trek Organization by the Best Company

              I went on a trip to the Everest Base Camp for five days with my sisters. These five days have been the best day of my life. I decided to do it as soon as I could, so I contacted Nepal Trek Adventures and booked the trek with them and boarded for Nepal. To receive us, a member of the NTA was there at the airport. He greeted us and took us to the hotel that was booked for us. We continued our journey from the next day. I don’t know how this 5 day passed. It was like a blink and boom – 5 days on EBC passed away. We were really happy and enjoyed our tour on the top-notch. I appreciate the work of the NTA and am very thankful to them for everything that they did to make my journey this way beautiful and memorable. I will surely suggest contacting NTA for trekking in Nepal Everest because it is the best company in this tourism field and you will not regret uniting with them.

              Adventurous 5 Days Trek to EBC

              From my childhood, I used to find the mountains beautiful and attractive even though I used to see mountains only in the pictures. I eagerly wanted to visit Mount Everest because it is the highest peak in the world. I got a chance to visit the EBC with the 5-day tour a couple of months ago and I still remember it clearly. The moment was something I can't forget about. I went to the Nepal Trek Adventure for this 5 days trek to EBC. Everything was completely planned by NTA according to our needs and requirements. The trek to EBC was memorable for me and I will never forget it till my last breath. The view of the mountains was breathtaking. We met with local people and acquired some understanding of their culture and traditions. The whole trip was amazing and memorable; we also took a lot of pictures with the local people and the team members as well. Thank you, NTA for everything. I highly recommend others to contact NTA for their journey in Nepal!
