    Way back more than 400 years of history, the Sherpa normally are farmers and livestock herding like cows and yaks interwoven with strong Buddhism religion and fascinating cultures that you can witness walking around villages.

    In every Sherpa village, one can find a monastery, some are older by more than 500 years like the “monastery of Thame and Pangboche villages”, whereas the famous monastery of Thyangboche was much older and was destroyed by a huge fire in 1991 and has been built to its original shapes.

    Can we get Altitude Sickness during Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek?

    Altitude Sickness can affect anyone. At high altitudes, the decrease in atmospheric pressure makes breathing difficult due to less oxygen. Mainly, it happens above 3300m (10,000ft). Signs and symptoms are as follows:

    • Headache/Dizziness.
    • Nausea/vomiting.
    • tiredness/fatigue.
    • Sleepy but can’t sleep.
    • Loss of appetite.

    Prevention for this is to dress warmly as per weather conditions, drink plenty of water, eat well, and walk slowly. It is a good idea to climb higher than you sleep. Keep hydrated and make sure you avoid alcohol.

    Shower and Toilet facilities

    All guest houses offer hot showers, which can be a shower stall or a bucket of hot water. Please note that at high altitudes there may not be enough hot water for all the trekkers. Limit the use of hot water unless the water is solar-heated for ecological reasons. Every lodge has some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. If the water is frozen simply ask your guide to get a warm bowl of water.

    Toilets are mainly Asian-style squat toilets. The toilets are outside of your room. You are in the mountains: Cleanliness will vary. You should not throw toilet paper in the toilet. Instead, use a rubbish bin that is kept inside the toilet room.

      Most amazing trip!

      I hosted a trip with this company and brought along a group of 12 people, some family, friends and strangers. With that many people not knowing eachother I was very nervous about the trip but it went so smoothly. Transportation, accommodations, food etc was all setup for us and everything ran without a hitch! We were so lucky to have our guide Nirmal! He was so kind, helpful, funny and became a great friend! He made sure everyone was comfortable the entire time and was helpful when people got sick in higher elevation. Nirmal absolutely made the trip 100x better and miss him so much. All of our porters and assistant guides were lovely and we had a fantastic yoga instructor, Onil on our trip as well! Highly reccomend booking this trip! And make sure to ask for Nirmal as your guide!
