If you’re planning on a trek to the Everest Base Camp or have signed up for a trek already, then you are welcome! Ian Taylor has climbed Mount Everest 17+ times, Mera Peak 6 times up to the summit, and has led to Everest Base Camp on a further 35 walks. We want the trek to Everest and Kala Patthar to be enjoyed by locals. We would therefore like to provide you with the right details prepared for the ride.
7 Effective ways to plan your Everest Base Trek
Upgrade the air conditioning
Second, full acclimatization must be incorporated into your path. At 3,500m/11,500 feet we firmly suggest 3 nights of Namche Bazaar. More time on this height provides you with a safer experience at a low level of oxygen. At this vital acclimatization point, this additional time will help you build more red blood cells, transport more oxygen, and travel safely to higher levels.
Not all make it into the Everest area, so before going higher, it’s Important to acclimatize down well. We have learned from years of experience that spending less time on air conditioning than we suggest and that you are at great risk of severe AMS (high altitude sickness). If you spend fewer days acclimatizing, the chances of success will decrease. You should be the number one issue for the best acclimatization.
You need to do very precise training
It is very important to have unique physical conditions. You don’t run a marathon, you walk up and down on the path to Everest, the big mountains. This all takes place on the back with weight (6kg/12lbs). There are days longer than others. See the Everest Base Camp Trek for daily distances.
Your stamina and strength of your legs are much more useful than health. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have to concentrate on stamina and cardio. Therefore you don’t run a marathon, you don’t have to run. It is no problem to mix your training, but it is not necessary to concentrate on running. A weighted backpack is required, and the weight you are carrying is increased. Also, 4 to 5 days a week you have to practice. We will walk and talk to you in preparation for your Everest Base Camp Trek.
- What kind of height would you cover every day?
Understanding the height gains on the trail allows you to consider the height gains you can make when you practice. This helps you to create a training schedule for you. Every day of your trip you must consider the rises. Dream a bit more about that. Therefore you would be able to build a training schedule for you if you have regular travel distances that increase every day on your Kilimanjaro climb, hiking hours a day.
You will be exposed to 30% to 50% less oxygen at altitude so that the muscles will be put under greater strain at sea levels. The best way to train for walking to Everest Base camp. You can do this best even though you are in the gym for any workout session, adding weight to your backpack. You should raise the monthly weight.
Build the Right Training Plan
This is just a follow-up to No. 3. 3-6 months before your climb, you have to develop your plans. You do need to think about how to gain strength and conditioning for your journey to the Everest Base Camp, as you have no access to mountains and hills. You need to consider the elevation rise, weight, and the regular distances to Everest Base Camp in order to build the right plan of training. Only then will you excel if you draw on the knowledge above on the right training schedule.
Make sure your clothes are right
Trekking boots and merino layers are very necessary with the right sleeping bag. Watch our PACKING video. You have to sleep as much as possible and spend a lot of time rest and sleep in your room. That is why you want to be as relaxed as possible. With its consistency down to 0 degrees Fahrenlichkeit (-17 c), sleepless nights and good quality rest will make a difference.
You have to have the right layers, jackets, gloves, vessels, backpacks, and little bits of interest. We have an itemized list of kits in our 45-page dossier when you register for one of our trips. We are also often ready to assist you to make the right decisions for the Everest Trek on clothing and supplies.
Trekking boats are required
Early buying the right walking boats is extremely necessary and even to break them in. There are currently many high-quality boots that suit the bill for this journey. You want to ensure, however, that you get the right foot boot!
The trekking boot La Sportiva Trango GTX for Everest Base Camp Treks is currently our favorite boat. They are lightweight, warm, but breathable, water-resistant and have plenty of support for the knees, and have an even register (which we prefer) sole. You are looking for all these considerations in a good trekking cruise. For a trek to the Everest Base Camp, in the Alps, in Morocco, on Inca, in Kilimanjaro, and beyond, these boats are a good choice.
Power the right food for your trek
We use the best available lodges during an Ian Taylor Trekking journey to Everest Base Camp. Better lodges also have the best food. There’s plenty of food in the area but we’d like to give you the best in the best lodges. See our VIDEO FOOD AND Lodging. It’s incredibly important to fuel your Everest Camp adventure. Don’t choose the cheap Everest Base Camp Treks as they end up in bad housing and therefore run a greater risk of food-related issues.
