5 reasons why every TCSN trekker has achieved Everest Base Camp

everest base camp success

August 1, 2018

The Everest Base Camp Trek is no walk in the park. It’s a journey which has seen elite athletes fall short. The fittest fail.

Since we began in 2006, Trek Climb Ski Nepal has safely guided more than 600 people to their dream of standing at the famous Everest Base Camp.

So how have we helped so many everyday people with everyday fitness achieve their goal without fail?

Our 100% success and safety records are no accident.

Here are 5 reasons why Trek Climb Ski Nepal’s Everest Base Camp Trek can get you there.

1. Guidance before you go

Book with most travel companies and the first you’ll hear or see of them is at the Arrivals gate at Kathmandu Airport.

And while Everest Base Camp is an achievable goal for most people of average fitness, preparation is still an important element of success.

Three months is a reasonable time to get your body in shape for the trek, and we’ll provide you with a proven fitness program to help guide you in your efforts.

We’ll also send you a comprehensive guide to Nepal so you can familiarise yourself with the people and places before your real journey begins.


2. Walk with an Everest summiteer, or two, or three…

Nearly every expedition we run, and not just our Everest Base Camp Treks, is led by at least one guide who has stood on top of Mt Everest. In fact, it’s likely you’ll be in the safe hands of two, or even three guides with multiple summits of the world’s highest mountain.

You’ll have the opportunity to walk side-by-side with some of the most experienced mountaineers in Nepal and hear them recount stories of success. Our team in the photo above led our September 2017 Everest Base Camp Trek.

3. Lovely lodges

Rest for your weary body is crucial if you’re to back up day after day and ultimately reach Everest Base Camp.

After a hard day on the trail, crawling into a tent as the temperature plummets well below zero can be an uncomfortable way to spend the night.

There’s nothing quite like escaping the elements and relaxing in a local lodge or tea house.

Trek Climb Ski Nepal chooses the best available accommodation for our clients so you’ll feel more rested and ready to face the challenge ahead.


4. A rest day is the best way

You’ll find dozens, if not hundreds of trekking companies wanting to get you there and back as quickly as possible.

Trek Climb Ski Nepal adds an important rest day to the itinerary so you can better adapt to the challenges of trekking at altitude and replenish your energy.

This rest day happens at Dingboche where stunning views of Ama Dablam will keep you spellbound. Even with a rest day, you’ll find it hard to leave.

5. The meal deal

If you’re researching trekking companies you might find their price appealingly low. But look a little closer and you might also find meals are conspicuously absent from their inclusions.

Meals in the Everest region of Nepal are not cheap. If you had to buy your own meals from local lodges your total food bill would be close to AUD $900.

Remember, you’ll be burning huge amounts of energy each day of your trek. Nutritious meals are a must if your trek is to be successful.

Trek Climb Ski Nepal not only provides all meals on your trek, you’ll wonder just how our cook has managed to produce such delicious, nutritious delights in such challenging conditions.

Oh, and you’ll never go short thanks to our ‘all you can eat’ policy.

For many, an Everest Base Camp Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
