This trek is similar to the Everest Base Camp trek but with an extra day to reach Ama Dablam base camp, it is very unique. Unfortunately, very few trekkers have gone to Ama Dablam base camp because it’s new to them. Therefore, don’t miss the chance to trek to the most popular base camps in Nepal in one package.

Some of the best tips to enjoy your stay:

At the time of acclimatization day on Namche Bazar, it is recommended to have a hike or explore the Bazar. If you get lucky to stay in Namche Bazar on Saturday then you can go check out the market. Because every Saturday, there opens a big market place selling different kinds of stuff at a cheap price. You can taste many unique foods in there which is very tasty. Most of the peoples think that it is very expensive here but to be true its’s not different than Kathmandu price.

Similarly, you will have wifi facility during your trip but rather than using your phone, you can play cards with your teams also. Most of the tourists love playing cards because they find it very fun during the trek. Or you can play different games with the team also.

Also, make lots of videos to keep it a memory, and don’t forget to capture every moment during your trip. You will encounter lots of new things on this trip that you can’t find at other places. That is why you have to keep it your precious memory of your life.
