Similarly, we have found that lots of people are afraid to do the trek in this area. They think that this trek is very hard and there are lots of death rates in this area but it’s different nowadays. Because there were fewer details on the internet and the guides were not well trained as well as they were weak at speaking English in the past. Due to these reasons, there was no good communication between guides and tourists. Therefore, due to less guidance from guides, tourists use to get sick and they have to take the risks which result in death.
However, at this present time, you can find lots of useful information on the internet as well as tips. Similarly, new talented guides have already replaced the old ones with good communication skills, good guidance, and basic health treatment knowledge. Around 30,000 tourists visit Mount Everest Base Camp within a year and still increasing because it’s very safe nowadays. That is why EBC trek is still a popular trek in the world and one of the best bucket lists for all.

And all the foods will be made by professional chefs in this region. Therefore, we can say that the accommodations here are good according to the geographical structure and services.
Do I need a Nepali guide for the EBC trek?
Well, there are lots of solo trekkers who have completed this trek but it’s not recommended to do solo trekking in this region. If you are new to this trekking zone then don’t do it solo. You may ask why?
In the trekking seasons like Autumn seasons and Spring seasons, this area will be crowded with tourists. Due to the limited hotels/lodges at some of the places, you may not get a place to stay for the night. Now, remember how you will stay in this region without any accommodations? Now what? A guide can arrange an accommodation facility here. They are experienced and well-trained so they can help you with any difficulties. Similarly, you can get genuine information also as well as a guide that will make your trip fantastic, memorable.
If you take a guide with you then the first responsibility of the guide will be the accommodation facility for you. You will get a room if you take a guide with you. Similarly, they will handle all the food services for you.
Most of the tourists think that the guides are only for showing the way to the destination but it’s not only that. If you hire a guide then he will take all the responsibility for your health, foods, accommodations, rest, guidance and many more. Without a guide, no one can guarantee if you will reach the summit or not. That is why from our point of view, it’s best to hire a good guide with a good experience.

Everyone says that there is Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) or Altitude sickness problem: What should I know?
The major problem of this EBC trek is altitude sickness or also known as AMS. And most of the people are afraid to do Everest Camp trek due to this reason. However, there are many ways to find if you are suffering from altitude sickness or not. Likewise, you can also cure it with the right information and instruction from guides.
First of all, you may want to know what is AMS or altitude sickness? To be short, AMS and altitude sickness is similar and both mean the sickness that is caused by high altitude/low oxygen. When your body doesn’t get enough oxygen then it’s likely to occur fast. And in high altitude areas like EBC, there is a very high chance of getting AMS. Similarly, in past there were many cases where tourists used to get AMS very often.
But now in the present time, many things have changed including altitude sickness possibilities. Nowadays, there are very rare cases where people are suffering from AMS/altitude sickness. So why is it?
People are becoming very smart nowadays and most of them know about the AMS and it’s prevention also. Likewise, trekking agencies are also upgrading in Nepal and they are providing quality guides. Most of the guides know about the prevention measures of altitude sickness as well as curing it. That is why there is very little chance to get altitude sickness in Everest Base Camp also.
