Dahl bath food poisoning in Everest and fever. Violently sick. I think it has subsided. What do you eat that is safest currently eating garlic soup.
I have another question and hope you can be as much help as you were for my last post! We are doing EBC in mid February 2023 (not the ideal time I know) And I’d love to get any advice on what to pack, clothing wise what is best to wear eg ski pants, big jacket and thermals? And also if you bought food as well what you though was a good choice for energy and weight?
Thanks in advance! It’s coming up quickly and I feel underprepared haha!

We are considering hiking Poon Hill, though we want to tack on another week somewhere else, (not necessarily Nepal) after our trek. What are options? We were thinking of Tibet, though direct flights are (for now) are no longer operating. Would appreciate thoughts from the brains trust!
I’m heading to Nepal in December to do yala peak, whilst we’re there were looking to do Everest base camp! Just curious as to how other people have done this? With groups/tours, solo or your own sherpa? Also how long it’s took any of you? I know the timeline for most tours is 14 days but can you do it quicker or? Thanks in advance!
Also I forgot to add, I was also looking at maybe adding the gokyo lakes into the EBC trek! If it’s as nice as it looks/worth it?
I hope this message finds you well and you’re having a wonderful day!
Quick question for y’all – I have hiked the Annapurna Circuit a few years back in trail
shoes, I was curious to know your thoughts on trail shoes versus boots for hiking the EBC trek in early March?
The trail shoes I currently hike in are Hoka Soeedgoat 5’s.
Also…do you recommend Gators?
Thanks everyone for your wisdom
Hey everyone, I’m considering trying to do Everest base camp in late nov/Dec, but unfortunately don’t have a huge budget. I would prefer to use a local guide to help support them, and I also don’t have any trekking equipment with me so would need to rent or buy.
I have seen some package tours with all cost included so have a rough idea but if you use a local guide how much would you expect to pay? And also for the accommodation along the way?
Alternatively if need be, how hard is it to trek solo and how busy is it around this time with others on the route?
Also I am still a little confused about options to get from Kathmandu to lukla… some websites seem to suggest you can also drive between the two and some say flying or hiking is the only route.
Thanks for any help
Hello friends, can I ask how much is the airfare from Ramechhap to Lukla?
What is the percentage of trekkers who cannot complete ebc. Either through injury or sickness. Or just giving up and not wanting to go further.
What type of preparation is required for EBC trek. Is 2 years enough time for preparation? Is there any article that I can find to help me train for the EBC trek?
