The best time to visit Everest 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 the overall outlook remains more visible and accurate.

Gazing at sunlight also does not harm the body much, as it remains at a moderate level (sometimes higher). There will be less fear of being colder as the temperature remains adjustable in those months. Flora blossoming and fauna dancing will also add more spur in these periods of time.

With a regular flight to Lukla airport, the journey starts with a cup of coffee or breakfast in tea houses near Lukla airport. Everest base camp expedition day 1 will take you to Phakding villages within 4 to 5 hours of trek.

            Freedom of Panorama

            Everyone has the right to take photographs photos of the things and places that they admire. But there also reside 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 a must to ask the respective guide, porters, or locales in order to know about these restrictions and unavailability.

            Clothes for Everest Base Camp 5 Days Trek

            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. A helicopter tour does not need many many clothes as in a trek. So you can minimize your clothing sense to the trekking part only.

            Cash for Everest Base Camp 5 Days Trek

            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 the 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 in any place whether it is a city like Kathmandu or 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 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

            A 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 heights. 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.
