Everest Base Camp Trek Blog

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

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

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!
