                  Frequently Asked Questions
                  • Q1. How hard is it to walk to Everest Base Camp?

                    The trekking to Everest base camp is moderate. Normally, it takes 12 days to complete the trek to Everest base camp with core trekking but you can also complete it in 8 days with a helicopter return flight if you have a limited time period. Apart from that, you must be physically fit, and also no trekking expertise is required.

                  • Yes, you can take a helicopter to Everest base camp but normally it lands at Kala Patthar from where you can enjoy the majestic view of Mount Everest and neighboring mountains.

                  • The air is too thin for most helicopters to generate enough lift to stay in the air. If the helicopter is equipped to reach that height, landing is still an incredibly delicate thing.

                  • Yes, even an inexperienced person can perform this trek but one must be physically fit and strong enough to carry the baggage while hiking around.
