➤ Avoid alcohol: Alcohol can dehydrate the body and exacerbate symptoms of AMS.

➤ Eat well: Maintain a balanced diet with carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats to sustain energy levels and prevent altitude sickness.

➤ Rest and acclimatize: Allow your body time to adjust to the altitude by taking it easy during the first few days of the trek.

Stay warm: Dress in layers to stay warm, as cold temperatures can aggravate symptoms of altitude sickness.

➤ Avoid smoking: Smoking reduces oxygen levels in the body, making AMS symptoms worse.

➤ Listen to your body: Pay attention to how you feel and communicate any symptoms of AMS to your guide promptly.

➤ Descend if necessary: If symptoms persist or worsen despite preventive measures, descend to a lower altitude immediately.

Following these guidelines can help ensure a safer and more enjoyable trekking experience in the Everest region, minimizing the risk of altitude sickness.

When my friend and I were in Nepal, Safe Holiday Adventure Pvt. Ltd. organized our 5-day trek to Namche Bazaar to see Everest. They gave us the best price compared to other agencies. Mr. Gauli, the Trek Consultant, replied quickly and explained everything clearly.

We had a guide named Surya Tamang with 16 years of experience. He was very kind and caring, and we felt safe with him. Our porter, Prem, was also very nice and helpful.

The weather was perfect, and from Namche Bazaar, we saw amazing views of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kwande, Thamserku, and many more mountains.

Thank you, Santosh, for managing our short Everest View Trek so well. Your team was great. We will always recommend your agency for the excellent service.

Thank you and keep up the good work.

I had such a best time than i expected !!! WOW….Beautiful Nepal

My first visit to Nepal was an incredible experience, especially considering I had never trekked before. Fortunately, I had the privilege of having Santu as my guide. Santu proved to be an exceptional trekking guide, with extensive experience in the tourist industry and excellent English language skills. Over an 8-day period, my girlfriend and I embarked on the short and easy Everest view trek, and choosing Santu as our guide was undoubtedly the best decision we made.

Santu’s friendly nature and warm hospitality made us feel incredibly welcome throughout the journey. He went above and beyond by introducing us to the local culture and offering recommendations on the best food to enjoy while trekking, as well as in Kathmandu and Pokhara. His expertise and knowledge truly enhanced our experience, and I can confidently say that when I return to Nepal in the future, Santu will be my only choice as a trekking guide.

This cost typically includes all necessary permits, accommodation, meals, and the services of a guide and porter.

It is important to note that prices can fluctuate, and it is recommended to do thorough research and compare prices from multiple sources before booking a trek.

What to pack for the Short and Easy Everest View Trek

Packing for the Short and Easy Everest View Trek requires careful consideration, as the weather and terrain can be unpredictable. It is recommended to pack warm and waterproof clothing, including a waterproof jacket and pants, warm layers, and gloves and a hat. Sturdy hiking boots, a backpack, and a good quality sleeping bag are also essential. Other items to consider include a headlamp, sunscreen, a refillable water bottle, and personal toiletries. It is important to pack light and bring only essential items, as porters can only carry a limited amount of weight.

The difficulty level of the Short and Easy Everest View Trek

The Short and Easy Everest View Trek is considered to be a moderate trek, with a few challenging sections. The trek involves walking for several hours each day, with an average of 4-6 hours of walking per day. There are some steep inclines and declines, and trekkers will need to navigate rocky terrain and narrow paths. The altitude can also pose a challenge, as the trek reaches a maximum altitude of around 3,870 meters at Tengboche Monastery. However, the trek is generally accessible to most people who are reasonably fit, and it is not necessary to have previous trekking experience. Proper preparation and a positive attitude are key to successfully completing the trek.

The history and significance of Tengboche Monaster

Tengboche Monastery is a prominent Buddhist monastery located in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The monastery was founded in 1916 and was destroyed twice due to natural disasters, but it was later rebuilt. Tengboche Monastery is considered the most significant monastery in the Everest region, and it plays a vital role in Sherpa culture and religion. It is the center for many religious festivals and ceremonies, and it offers stunning views of Mt. Everest and surrounding mountains. Many trekkers visit the monastery to witness the monks chanting and performing religious rituals.

ATM or money Exchange 

There is an ATM located in Namche Bazaar, which is the largest town in the region, and it accepts major credit and debit cards. However, it is not uncommon for the ATM to be out of service or to have limited cash available. It is recommended to carry some cash with you in case the ATM is not functioning correctly.

Money exchange services are also available in Namche Bazaar, where you can exchange major currencies such as US dollars and euros for Nepalese rupees. However, it’s important to note that the exchange rate may not be as favorable as in other parts of Nepal, and the exchange services may have limited hours of operation.

Overall, it’s advisable to carry some cash with you and use it sparingly, as ATMs and exchange services may not always be available or reliable on the Everest trekking route.

Are there facilities for Wi-Fi, charging batteries, hot showers, and communication?

The availability of Wi-Fi, charging batteries, hot showers, and communication facilities during the short and easy Everest view trek may vary depending on the specific itinerary and the trekking agency you choose. In the remote areas of the trek, the facilities may be limited, but in the main villages, such as Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, and Phakding, you may find charging facilities and Wi-Fi available at a cost. However, it’s not guaranteed that Wi-Fi service will work smoothly, and also the charging facilities may not be reliable.

As for hot showers, they will be available at some of the teahouses for an additional fee. Communication facilities such as phones and the internet may be limited and spotty in remote areas and it is not recommended to rely on them.
It’s always best to check with the trekking agency or to carry a portable charging device and a satellite phone for emergency communication.

Are guide and porter compulsory for the Everest view trek or solo is fine?

It is recommended to have a guide or a porter when doing the short and easy Everest view trek, especially if it is your first time in the region. A guide will not only ensure your safety but also help you navigate the trail, provide information about the culture, history, and environment of the region, and also help you to communicate with local people.

A porter can also be hired to help carry your gear and supplies. This will help to reduce your load and make the trek more comfortable.
However, it is not compulsory to have a guide or a porter during the short and easy Everest view trek, and some trekkers may choose to go solo. But it is important to note that the short and easy Everest view trek still involves trekking at high altitudes and in remote areas, so it is important to be well-prepared and have the necessary skills, experience, and equipment.
