Everest Base Camp
It is not important whether or not George Mallory coined the immortal phrase: ‘Because it’s there’ when asked in 1923 why anyone would want to climb Mt. Everest. Since those days this name has caught on people’s imagination. In everybody’s mind there is a hidden urge to have a glimpse of this killer but still legendary mountain.

What about my health
• A health certificate is mandatory for all the travelers. It should clearly certify that the traveler is physically fit to carry out a high altitude trek to Everest Base Camp. • We do take medical precautions, however, due to high altitude traveler can suffer through headache, loss of appetite, nausea, breathlessness and loss of sleep. These ailments are temporary and disappear as soon as the person gets acclimated to the weather conditions. • 4-5 litres of water intake is a must to avoid altitude related sickness. A tablet of Diamox comes handy to help acclimatization. • In case of sever medical emergency, all the cost incurred by us on treatment are to be borne by the traveler immediately in cash. • To ensure safety at all points of time, it is highly advisable to follow the instructions of the group leader. • Hills and Trails does not offer any type of insurance against losses.
