Everest Base Camp Trek Blog

Are you looking for an Everest Base Camp trek blog to help you plan out your adventure? You’ve come to the right place!

In March 2015, I set off on one of the coolest adventures ever have – I completed the Everest Base Camp Trek. No, I didn’t actually climb up Mount Everest. Sadly, I don’t have that kind of money or time, nor do I have the nerveย for that. But, I did stand in her glory, and it was incredible!

Before I did the Everest Base Camp trek, I did a lot of blog research to help me understand exactly what I was getting myself into. What would the weather be like? How hard was the trek? What kind of exercise and training should I do? How’s the food and accommodations? So much to consider! There are a lot of great blogs out there with different experiences, so it’s important to gather the right kind of information to decide when to go, and what to expect.

Now, I’m passing the torch on to you fine people! Below, you’ll find my day to day account of my Everest Base Camp Trek – full of photos, details about where we stayed, what the food was like…and the biggest hurdle we ran into…the weather. During our trek, our guide told us that each day during the busy season, there are 50-70 helicopter rescues. That’s a LOT! And that tells me people are going out there unprepared – so, do your research, do your training, and make it successfully to Everest Base Camp!

Our guide, Gyanu, with Apex the Asia Holidays, was a big part of why our trek was so incredible, so if you’re looking for a good local guide (and porters), I highly recommend Gyanu and his team! They’re local, affordable, knowledgeable, and all around good people.

    Wow!! Your blog has been so insightful and detailed. Your writing and experiences have made me feel as though I can begin to prepare myself (mentally) for my own trip this December to EBC. I was wondering if you could provide a packing list of what you took, particularly how you layered up during the day for the trekking part. Even from some of the pictures it seems you could wear t-shirts and long sleeve shirts at times, even with the inches of snow in the background. All information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      Danielle – that is such awesome feedback, thank you! And…you actually read my mind ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m at this moment working on finishing up a packing list that should be super helpful. During the day, it was beautiful…as long as the sun was out. But with short days, as soon as the sun is gone, it’s very cold out there. I hope to have my packing list finished by tomorrow so I’ll post a link once it’s ready!
