EBC Trek considered a strenuous trek that requires a good level of fitness, a good training plan prior to your trip will make the trek that much more enjoyable. Depending on your individual fitness level, a few weeks to a few months of prior training should be enough to get you into shape for the Everest Base Camp Trek.

Starting from Lukla, you’ll be walking an average of 15 km a day for around 5 – 7 hours. Whilst some days will be far easier than others. Typically, the trek starts from 2,600m, Lukla Airport and reaching a high point of just beyond at Kala Patthar (5,500m). For acclimatization, the itinerary includes rest days which would give you enough time to acclimatize yourself with the altitude.
