Good to Know

The fitness advice you would get from trekkers and travel magazines/blogs, and also which I would give to you, is that you should be reasonably fit to go in the Everest Base Camp Trek. And by reasonably fit, it doesn’t mean to be like some ultra-athletic guy who takes part in the Olympics. Even if you don’t do regular exercises, if you can walk like 4 to 6 hours a day taking enough breaks in between, you are reasonably fit.

Just to be clear. You shouldn’t have knee or ankle problem. You shouldn’t suffer from some heart or lung diseases.

Otherwise, Everest trek is for you. It will take somewhere between 12 or 20 days. That’s enough days to gradually acclimatize with the high-altitude Himalayan environment and do pleasant walks in the Himalayas. Furthermore, there will always be porters and guides to help you. And you will come across passing-by Everest trekkers too.

The Preparations
There are preparations which you can do. Almost all trekkers do and it will be a lot better and a lot helpful if you do the preparations I am about to share with you about 2 months in advance before your trek begins.

1.    Go for a run or hike to hills where you have to do ascents and descents.
2.    Once a week, do a long walk.
3.    Swim and cycle.
4.    You can also go up and down the stairs of a tall building.
5.    Eat healthy food.
6.    If you do yoga, that helps too. Keep on doing. If you can, do more yoga related to breathing.

Keep in mind these preparations aren’t strictly compulsory. You can do well even when the preparations you do aren’t rigorous like that of some ultra-athletic person. Do these things in moderate place for two months or even less. And you are set to complete the Everest Base Camp Trek enjoyably.
