Everest base camp trek is one of the most desired and destined treks in Nepal that takes you through the dense forest full with colorful rhododendrons, passing through several villages inhabited by ethnic groups, crossing glacial streams and rivers via suspension bridges, witnessing the staggering views of mountain vistas and beautiful landscape. With the increase in altitude, you shall see the change in lifestyle of the people. Similalry, as you ascend higher and higher the facilities and the quality of the services that the teahouses offer you becomes limited to the most basics. For example, you might find a twin shared bed, with pillow, blanket, and mattress in the teahouse in the high altitude areas. You shall have shared bathroom, which is of western design in the lower altitude areas but is squat style in the high altitude areas.
Similarly, with the increase in the altitude, you shall find lesser varieties of meals in the menus. However, the dish that you can find in every menu is Dal Bhat. Dal Bhat comes with rice, lentils, varieties of green vegetables, meats, Papadh, locally made pickles, and Saladh. And no matter how much extra item in the dish you ask for, you shall not be charged extra penny for it. Also, with your stomach filled with Dal Bhat, you can walk throughout the day in any altitude, thus the Everest base camp height
might not be your problem.
You shall find great number of trekkers in the month of October. March to May and September to November are the most ideal months for this trek in Nepal. Since everybody is prone to altitude sickness in the high altitude areas due to less content of oxygen in the air, you have to trek slow, taking plenty of time for acclimatization and rest.
