If there is one thing that a trekker could ever wish for, that is to climb the highest mountain in the world, the Mt. Everest.
But just like any dream, it is definitely not an easy goal if you don´t work hard for it. It basically needs years of training, work out and constant immunization to the temperament of the place.
Indeed, Mt. Everest is a too good to be true hike, but that doesn´t mean you can`t do it. Today, let us talk about a few trekking tips you all should know when climbing Mt Everest base camp.
Get Enough Training
It is important that you are trained well before even starting to trek. Basically, the trek to the base camp is not just qa typical trek, it is more technical and you will experience changes in the your body as you make your way up and higher.
Hydration is the key, that should be your utmost priority. At higher levels of altitude, your body often dehydrates much faster and quicker than it will at sea level, that´s why you have to make sure that you are well hydrated the whole trek duration.
Slow and Steady
No need to rush, indeed. You need to remember that trekking is a marathon not a sprint. There´s definitely no need for you to go faster, a slow steady pace is more recommended. In fact, the goal is to reach the top, there´s defnitely no competition in climbing.
Stay Out of the Sun
The sun can be brutal sometimes at the everest. So to keep out of skin cancer and pesky wrinkles then make sure to stay out of the sun as often as possible.
