Can a Trek to Everest Base Camp?
To Complete Everest base camp trekking first of all you have to be positive and need to do some work out as it is really important. Before you go to trek to EBC if you are not so fit you can make morning exercise, balance diet, and take care about fitness than you can do it easily.

The accommodations in the Everest region will be quite good because you can have warm dining hall to eat your food and to talk with your friends and the room will be wind proof plus perfect ply insulations, you can use indoor Restroom near your room.
The excess of Accommodation during high season (Sep- Dec 15) will not be enough some time because there are about 500 trekkers fly in to Lukla for Everest trekking so you should reserve your accommodation if you want to be sure that you will have room each night during the trek. You can tell your guide about reservation while you are in Everest region because they always have each settlement’s hotel number and they know the person too, so just one day earlier or two days earlier they accept reservation in Everest region so you need to tell to your Guide or Porter. As per the itinerary each settlement you can get tea house/lodges so it will be warm and safety during Everest trekking.
What short of path we follow from Lukla to Everest Base Camp?
Everest trekking region sounds very difficult but it is not true 100% as a guide of Everest region since 14 years I would say the path from Lukla will be wide and natural through many traditional Sherpa house and new lodges , tea house, Mani wall , Suspension bridges and Rivers. The path to walk each day will be about 4 to 5 hours from morning to evening you can walk slowly but it will be just gradual path Except Kalapather, Namche hill and Tangbuche hill. Otherwise it will be easy ascend along the river.

When you order your dinner in Everest Region at high season (Sep to Nov) you should give your order before 5 pm than give also them your time you will eat your dinner than they will serve you on time because there are fixed lodges and so many people in the lodge this is why they have this kind of system.
