Guides & Porters On Short Everest Base Camp Trek. 

One of the major aspects of trekking in the Short Everest Base Camp Trek is hiring guides and porters. As a traveler, you will require someone that is familiar to the Trek and can help you get through the trail smoothly. Guides can make your trek efficient as they will know the best routes. Porters can be helpful if you are going on longer expeditions such as summiting mountains. Such expeditions require longer days in which you have to carry more items. It’s best to have an extra bag which the porter will carry for you. You can hire a guide and a porter easily at any travel agencies.

Electricity/ Recharge & Internet on Short Everest Base Camp Trek. 

As you ascend higher, it is hard to even get some basic services at such places. It is recommended that you carry: a power bank according to your needs, a Ncell sim card and an Everest link wifi prepaid card and enough recharge cards to suffice your needs. It is better to use the Ncell sim when the network is available, and only to use Everest Link wifi at places there is no coverage for Ncell. Areas at high altitudes heavily rely on solar power thus you will find electricity at some lodges but you will be charged by the hour for each item you charge. At low levels, electricity will be available and will not be a problem.

Group Size & Crew Member on Short Everest Base Camp Trek.

The ideal group size for trekking in this Short Everest Base Camp Trek is considered to be around 5-6 people. It is highly recommended that you hire a guide. You can also leave out that option but it is for your own safety and benefit. It is up to you to hire a porter. Since this region is a popular trekking destination, there is no doubt you will meet fellow travelers walking the same trails. You can also travel alone but it is not recommended to do so. When you travel in a group, if you have any problems during the trek, there will be enough people to help you.

Medical Facility on Short Everest Base Camp Trek. 

You will find small pharmacies at villages around the trek. Some larger villages may also have hospitals that offer medical facilities up to an extent.

For serious medical conditions, rescue is available via helicopter. It is best to have your travel insurance checked as medical services and rescue operations are very expensive. It is advised to carry proper first aid kit and vital medications in your backpack to avoid possible medical circumstances.

Flight Cancellations & Delay (Internal) on Short  Everest Base camp Trek.

While traveling in the Short Everest Base camp Trek Lukla Airport is one and only entry point by air, there are high chances of flight cancellations and delays. The main cause for this inconvenience is the unpredictable weather. In many cases, your flight will get delayed, but at difficult times your flights will be canceled. Since there are limited flights departing to domestic destinations, you might have to wait a day or two to catch another flight. The best alternative to this could be to go by road via Jiri/Salleri.

Altitude Sickness On Short Everest Base camp Trek.

While traveling in the Short Everest Base Camp trek, it is definite that you will be ascending altitude day by day. The most common problem that occurs during these treks is altitude sickness. The higher you go, the harder it is to breathe. The most common symptoms of altitude sickness are shortness of breath, fatigue, insomnia, headache, nausea etc. You will have to walk slow and steady to reduce excessive pressure exertion on your body. If you catch altitude sickness there is no solution to this except to descend from that altitude. However, when immediate descent is not possible, medications like Diamox and other altitude pills can come in handy to get you going for a while. In severe cases, helicopter rescue is also an option to transfer the victim for further medical attention.  It is highly recommended to consult a doctor before you go to such treks to find out about any complications in your body.

Best Season to travel on Short Everest Base camp Trek. 

One of the key things you need to keep in mind before going on treks to the Short Everest Base Camp Trek is the season. There isn't necessarily the worst season to trek, however, there is a best one and autumn is considered as the ideal season. As the monsoon season ends around September, the weather clears up and you will get the best possible views. The trails will be dry and trekking will be a lot easier. The months, October and November are considered the best months to go on treks to the Everest region. But it does not imply that you cannot trek during other seasons. You can go on treks at any seasons but the difficulty and risk levels rise with the climate issues.

Insurance on Short Everest Base camp Trek.

Before going out on trekking at mountainous regions, you must check with your travel insurance providers if their policy covers mountainous areas.
