Diffculties and Safety

 

Everest Base Camp is not an easy trek. Most of the trekking days involves long rocky path that go uphill and downhill.  Average fitness is required not to be in the pain make sure you have enough walking experience to enjoy the trek. Most of the days include 4-7 hours walking. Altitude can be the problem too so  drinking lots of fluids and going slowly is important to avoid altitude sickness.

Your safety is of our major concern. Your Trekking guide has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns.  Since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. The Guide will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required.

Mountain World Treks provides a very friendly, safe professional and reliable service. Safety is their paramount importance and you will certainly feel well looked after. The team will do everything to make your stay the best experience they can. They have a wealth of local contacts and their standing in the Nepalese tourism network is second to none. In Nepal you need to be well known and well respected, Mountain World Treks ticks all the boxes. We spent three weeks with the team. We were on a Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo and then a jungle safari. We had a fantastic experience. When one of our friends became ill the team organised a helicopter rescue and took care of everything. They were fantastic and our entire experience was faultless. I have and definitely would recommend this organisation to any of my friends and family. I have full confidence in the experience you would have and you would certainly enjoy your holiday if you booked with Mountain World Treks. Sali and the team will take really good care of you., 5 STARs.[ Back ]
