Difficulties: The Everest Base Camp short (EBC) trek is a challenging but rewarding journey that takes trekkers through stunning landscapes, traditional Sherpa villages, and high-altitude areas. Although it is not as physically demanding as reaching the summit of Mount Everest, it still requires a good level of fitness and stamina due to the altitude and steep climb.

Without acclimatization, the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) increases, which can cause symptoms such as headache, nausea, and dizziness, in severe cases. Still, If you have a good experience of walking in the higher part of the mountains, then you can do this adventurous trek.

Great Experience - Everest Base Camp

20th October, 2018

We had a great time in Nepal and amazing experience!! All the prep and communications were with Dev who is extremely knowledgeable, polite and has lot of patience to answer questions (and I trust me I had a lot of them!). We trekked the Everest Base Camp with Mr. Ram as a guide (Dev’s partner). He was very experienced, knew everyone along the way, he could probably do the trek with his eyes closed and we felt safe and welcome in the places we stayed on this trek. When I got sick, both him and our porter (Sushan) took good care of me.
In addition, after the trek, we visited both Dev’s and Mr. Ram’s families, had homemade Nepalis traditional food – it was delicious! Both kept in touch after the trek till this day.
If you want a no hassle, enjoyable, safe, and hospitable experience you cannot go past Dev and his team!! They are the best; I would highly recommend exploring Nepal and trekking with them. They can find a trek suitable for your needs. Amazing! Thanks for everything, Guys!!

Himalayan adventure trek

5th October, 2018

I want to thank Ram of mountain eco tours for the extra care above and beyond that expected. Our backpacks for the everest base camp were delayed several days and we were 3 days into the trek before they arrived in kathmandu. Ram spent significant time coordinating their delivery to us while on the trek by utilizing porters to get our gear to us. In addition having a local guide with contacts enabled us to exit lukla by helicopter when many other travellers were stranded awaiting the cloud to clear. Some had been waiting several days and had missed their international flights but we were extracted the same day as our scheduled flight at minimal expense. Ram pays close attention to all trekkers and constantly monitors their health and well being. Both Ram and his porters are welcoming and they feel part of our extended trekking family. I have no hesitation in recomnending them to anyone who would like a safe, authentic Nepalese experience.

Nice people and great experience

13th October, 2019

Dev was our first contact, extremely polite and diligent. Once in Kathmandu, we met Ram who is Dev's business partner and was our guide during the trek, he is extremely knowledgeable of the circuit and was very helpful during all the trip in Nepal. Both of them kept in touch with us we appreciate the warm welcome and goodbye to Nepal.
Additionally, Babu (i think is spelled like that) was a great porter and very attentive too. So you can be sure by booking with them that you will have a great experience. Regarding the landscape, much more beautiful in person than in photographs. The culture, completely different to what we are used to, and the people, particularly in the mountain area, is really kind.

Everest base camp short trek Difficulties/food/ accommodation /duration and cost

Difficulties: The Everest Base Camp short (EBC) trek is a challenging but rewarding journey that takes trekkers through stunning landscapes, traditional Sherpa villages, and high-altitude areas. Although it is not as physically demanding as reaching the summit of Mount Everest, it still requires a good level of fitness and stamina due to the altitude and steep climb.

Reaching Everest Base Camp (EBC) without a day's acclimatization is very challenging. The trek starts from Lukla (2,860m) and goes up to EBC (5,364m), with significant elevation changes quickly. Without acclimatization, the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) increases, which can cause symptoms such as headache, nausea, and dizziness, in severe cases. Still, If you have a good experience of walking in the higher part of the mountains, then you can do this adventurous trek.

Food: 

Most meals are served in teahouses and lodges.

Dal Bhat: A traditional Nepali dish, Dal Bhat, consisting of lentil soup, rice, and vegetables, is commonly available and provides a nutritious, high-energy meal.

Western Dishes: Many teahouses offer a variety of Western dishes like pasta, pizza, pancakes, and sandwiches to cater to different tastes.

Soups and stews: Hot soups and stews are popular, providing warmth and hydration.

Tea and Coffee: Various types of tea (including ginger and lemon) and coffee are widely available.

Energy Snacks: Trekkers often bring energy bars, nuts and dried fruits for a quick energy boost between meals.

Local Snacks: Some local snacks like momo (dumplings) and Tibetan bread can be found.

Vegetarian options: Vegetarian meals are readily available and are often recommended to avoid potential problems with meat storage and hygiene at high altitudes.

Special Diets: While special dietary requirements (eg, gluten-free, vegetarian) can be difficult to accommodate, many teahouses try to accommodate them if notified in advance.

Water: Safe drinking water is essential. Trekkers usually use water purification tablets or buy bottled water, although reducing plastic waste is encouraged.

Hygiene: In general, food hygiene is good, but it is wise to stick to well-cooked food to avoid stomach problems.

Overall, though the food on the EBC trek is basic, it is enough to keep the trekkers well-nourished and energized for the journey.

During the trek, trekkers can expect different types of accommodation mainly in the form of teahouses and lodges. Here is a detailed look at the accommodation options available:

Accommodation

Luxury Teahouses: In some places, especially in larger villages like Namche Bazar, trekkers can find more luxurious teahouses. It offers private rooms with attached bathrooms, hot showers and extra comfortable beds. They also have better dining facilities and more varied menus.

Mid-Range Teahouses: These offer slightly better facilities than the basic teahouses. Rooms may have better insulation, and some may offer attached bathrooms. Common areas are generally more comfortable and well-heated.

Standard Lodges: These are similar to mid-range teahouses with private rooms and shared or attached bathrooms. Compared to basic teahouses they offer a bit more comfort and privacy.

Basic Teahouses: These are the most common types of accommodation on the EBC trek. They offer simple rooms with basic amenities like beds, blankets and pillows. Bathrooms are usually shared, and hot showers may be available for an additional fee.

Duration:  Starting from Lukla and passing through villages like Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorak Shep before reaching Everest base camp, this trek usually takes 10 to 14 days to complete. Hikers will encounter a variety of terrain, from rocky paths carved into mountain slopes to narrow trails, as well as elevation gains of over 1,000 meters (3,280 ft) on some days.

Cost: the total expenses for an EBC trek can depend on factors such as weather, level of comfort desired, and whether you choose to go on an independently guided tour or trek. On average, a guided trek with all-inclusive services can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 per person. It usually includes permits, accommodation, meals, guides, and porter services. Independent hikers can spend less but still have to budget for permits, lodging, food, and other necessities.

In summary, the Everest Base Camp short Trek offers a challenging but achievable adventure for those with a reasonable level of fitness. Costs may vary depending on preferences and services chosen, but trekkers can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas on this iconic trek.
