The Everest base camp hiking route is one of the most famous Himalayan destinations that meet the world’s highest mountain. It also includes Mount Everest (8848 m) and Sagarmatha National Park, a World Heritage site.

Climbers will mostly spend 4-8 weeks at Everest Base Camp acclimatizing to the Altitude. At that time, in the famously unstable Khumbu Icefall, the “Icefall Doctors” must mount ropes and ladders. Seracs, crevasses, and ice-moving blocks make the icefall one of the route’s most dangerous areas.
In this section, several climbers and Sherpas died. Usually, climbers must start their ascent long before sunrise to reduce the risk when the freezing temperatures block glue ice. There are extensive sections of the EBC trail. Many trekking people get blisters on their feet due to uncomfortable footwear. Make sure that you wear a comfortable one. You’re on a long walk to a remote part of Nepal.
