The Naming of Mount Everest

In the Nepali language, Mount Everest is called ‘Sagarmatha’. Sagar means the sky, and matha means above. Nepali people believe that the peak of Mt. Everest is above the sky. "Chomolungma" is the name of Mt. Everest given by the local Sherpa people from the Everest region. Chomolungma means the mother goddess of the earth.

Besides the snowcapped Himalayas, the landscape of the Everest region is wonderful. The Khumbu ice fall, glaciers, and the rugged terrain are amazing. The Himalayas and the landscapes are so attractive and exciting. From Gorakshep, the last point of lodges, we can tour to Kalapathar for sunrise and sunset views and later to Everest Base Camp. Walking along the rugged terrain is really an adventure in Everest Base Camp.

 

First climbers on Mount Everest

In1953, Sir Edmund Hillari and Tenzyng Norgey made successful climbs on top of Mt. Everest. Since then, it has become very popular worldwide and is the most wanted mountain for trekkers and climbers. Hillari and Tenzyng used the route of the Everest Base Camp.

There are two main trekking routes, Jiri (drive from Kathmandu) and Lukla (fly from Kathmandu), to Everest Base Camp. From Lukla, the main trekking point, the trekkers hike upwards to Namche Bazaar, known as the Sherpa Capital. Those who prefer a long trek can take the Jiri route that passes through the Sherpa village, High Suspension Bridge, Zobkyo Caravan (family of Yak), Sagarmatha National Park, and Namche Bazzar.

 

 

Inhabitants

The Everest area is inhabited mainly by Sherpa indigenous peoples who are renounced higher mountain climbers. Both Jiri and Lulka routes present you the culture, tradition, and life style of Sherpa indigenous peoples in Nepal.

 How hard is to go to Everest base camp trek?

 

Definitely, the Everest base camp trek is a hard trek due to the higher elevation, though there are hundreds of breathtaking views. You can make it easy if you follow some rules and regulations before starting your trek towards Everest base camp. Most of the time, tourists suffer from high-altitude sickness and tiredness. High-altitude sickness begins at 3000 meters (9700 feet) and continues until you reach the Mount Everest base camp at 5364 meters (17433 feet). If tourists walk slowly and steadily with many breaks on the way to the trek, they can acclimatize easily and the trek will be easy. On the way to the trek, every 1 to 2 hours, there are tea houses where tourists can have enough liquids and rest to protect themselves from high altitude sickness and fatigue. because there are not many up and down hills. The trekking trail goes gradually up, and in only a few places there are stiffs. If possible, try to practice walking through steeps. Jogging and swimming are equally helpful. Any exercise that is convenient for you and helps you be fit is recommended.

Time to get to Everest base camp

 

From Kathmandu, it takes a minimum of 5 days to arrive at Everest base camp if you are very fit, otherwise it takes 7 days. The 5-day trip is one way to Everest base camp, and coming back takes 4 more days. For the comfortable walk, it takes 7 days to arrive at base camp and 5 more days to come down. If you are an older person, then you can make it longer too. We design the itinerary on the basis of your requirements; otherwise, you can follow our detailed itinerary down.

 

 

Accommodations during the trek to Everest Base Camp

 

In Kathmandu, we provide a 2-star equivalent hotel, like an international guest house with bed and breakfast. In trekking, we provide an attached toilet room in the low lands. As we arrive at a higher elevation, it is difficult to get an attached toilet room.

Himalayan Tahr are the small goat like animals found in higher elevation of Nepal close to the himalaya.

 

 

 

 

Trekking Foods and Drinks in the Everest Region

 

We can get all kinds of food while trekking, choose from a menu, and eat as much as we want. We do not recommend eating any kind of meat that has been carried by local porters from low land for 2-3 days. In the trekking region, they are not allowed to kill any animals. We recommend eating all kinds of vegetarian food and eggs. You can have meat when you arrive at Lukla or Kathmandu. You can get all kinds of drinks on the trekking route. We recommend drinking mineral water, boiled water, or purified water. A purifying tablet is provided by our guide. All kinds of cold drinks and beers are available in tea houses.

Safety of the guests and trekking staff

Safety is the most important factor in trekking for tourists and trekking staff. We are highly concerned about the safety of our guests as well as our trekking staff. If there is a small mistake with high-altitude sickness, landslides, crossing rivers, heavy rain, heavy snowfall, walking on slippery trails as well as walking along the gorge trail, people can lose their lives. If we face these problems in trekking, then we stop for a while or come to the safe places. We will proceed only after the situation has become clear. Our guides and porters are very careful about the safety of guests, and we take insurance I.D. or policy of all guests and the phone number of the closest relative before starting their trek. All our guides and porters are insured by the insurance company.
