Altitude Sickness in Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

Altitude is always a possibility. Anyone can get it, and it does depend on age, sex, or fitness level. You can visit your doctor before the trek, to fully know about your body.

If you do get altitude sickness, you must let your guide know. And you should never overdo anything. You have to rest a lot at these high altitudes.

Make sure you pack medicines for altitude sickness, as well.

Best Time for Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek

Autumn and Spring seasons are the best time for Everest base camp trek. Autumn (September to November) has the best weather and surroundings. The sky looks sharp, and the mountains seem clearer.

This time of year is ideal for trekking. The day gets warmer but not too hot. You can trek in ease, and the nights get colder.
