Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest base camp Trek provides you great opportunity to have unique experience. If you have ever longed to set eyes on our highest summit then this exciting trek in the Everest region gives you the opportunity to fulfil a dream, while taking in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the Himalaya. Ever since the days of early climbing expeditions, the 8848m mountain has had a lure of its own, drawing climbers to scale it and trekkers to gaze on its icy faces. Naturally, the trail to the base camp of the mountain has become one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal, yet few people return from the trek unmoved by the experience of being right in among the highest peaks in the world.

I will be trekking independantly because I know I acclimatise slowly... but just an observation on your itinerary...it seems very rushed, especially since you will be flying into Lukla...only one night between 2000m - 3000m then only 2 nights at Namche before pressing on...what happens if any of your clients suffer AMS along the way? It seems there is little contingency available...are you able to wait for them? Decend if necessary as recommended.

Common feedback seems to be to spend at least an extra night in Namche and then have an extra day or 2 up your sleeve in case of AMS...comments???
