To trek to Everest Base Camp you do not need to be a super athlete nor a mountaineer but a few weeks of training, prior to arriving in Nepal, will enhance your experience. It will not be more enjoyable spending the trip of a lifetime struggling to walk the trails every day when a little sensible preparation before you arrive would make the trails so much more rewarding.

During a trek you can expect 3 full meals a day as well as well as regular tea and coffee breaks on both tea-house style or camping treks where food is freshly prepared daily.
