    • Fitness level required for Everest Base Camp Trek: Everest base camp trek is not only for professional walkers or athletes. Yes, Everest Base Camp trekking is rather challenging trek for novice trekkers but reasonable fitness and ability to walk through steep gradients both up and down for about average 4-6 hours a day (however, some days might need more walk, such as the day you reach Everest base camp) plus mental commitment qualifies you adequately to participate and complete Everest base camp trek successfully.  Slow and steady is the key to achieving and enjoying your Everest Base Camp Trekking. Prepare with cardiovascular training several times a week: cycling, swimming, hill climbing and lots of walking. Without training, you will find the Everest Base Camp Trekking less enjoyable – and we want you to enjoy the Everest Base Camp trekking and have the time of your life!
