I finished watching ‘Everest’ on my flight to Singapore and I felt tears in my eyes and watched all the magnificent locations in the true life that we saw while hiking to the Everest Base Camp last November. For six months we have been here, but it still feels so long, even for years at a time. I see Kathmandu on the tv from time to time as we drive across India at present. The Himalayan beauty alone is a fast ride. When I looked ahead, I saw some stuff from our journey to Everest Base Camp. Things we didn’t do, because nobody told us beforehand. We’ll teach you now, though. Call Delta Airlines Reservation.
1. Take the Everest Base Trek with Diamox!
I was just afraid of altitude before I started my EBC tour. Even if I’m a fan of the quote from Fisher, it’s an altitude, not a height. Abundantly. Abundantly. We learnt about it before we left and just a week and a half before we went to Nepal I was stuck with incredibly severe bronchitis.
I have to go to see a too horrible doctor. Not only did she recommend prednisone and antibiotics for me in the future, but she also provided me with Diamox, a treatment with effects of altitude. No, I didn’t want to, so I just thought I should hold them. She told me to take two pills a day if I needed them. However, our Jangbu guide asked us if we were to consider taking Diamox when we arrived in Lukla. I told him if I wanted ten pills, but he said you’re too late before you know you’re needing them.
Diamox should be used to suppress the condition of the altitude, not to relieve the symptoms. I was skeptical because I didn’t necessarily feel like doping my body painfully from my bronchitis medication. However, I’d feel guilty forever, if I didn’t take it and couldn’t make it to base camp. So I wanted to take them on 3,440m from Namche Bazar.
I can’t tell if it had been the Diamox or other conditions, but for one second, the altitude didn’t make us feel ill. Certainly, we had occasional headaches, and much of the time we had shortness of breath, but it cannot be prevented. We never felt ill or nauseous, though, when we saw others feeling bad. I may not have reached Everest Base Camp trek or finished my EBC trip if I would heed the recommendation of your Doctor to take them if possible.
If you go hiking at EBC, however, check your guide or your local pharmacy for the right thing! You can’t say what’s best with us, because we’re not doctors. Per 10 days, we finally took ten tablets, so one tablet a day, a half a day and a half a morning before bed. There are certainly many side effects, one of them is the choice of bones, you should note. It was my hand but I dragged my foot, wrists, ears, fingers and sides at last, told me that it was my doctor. I did. Nothing, but very annoying and frightening because you don’t know what’s happening…
2.Take ample tissues!
While on the way to Everest Base Camp, something can be sold, but at a price. We took a lot of tissues from home, but we ended up with them very soon because I had extremely bad stomach problems for nearly one week. One blows into it from the nose and it’s ripped already. Because I’m still running my nose as I walk, I really disliked it and didn’t have fabrics. It was unexpected, of course, but those that I purchased were pretty expensive.If you want to rent a doorman to accommodate your baggage, I strongly propose adding extra cloth. Wet wipes can also be handy!
3. There is wifi for sale everywhere!
We already wrote this on a different site, but in nearly every theater the wireless Internet service is open. Of course, it was at a premium, but in certain places it wasn’t as costly as we expected and it was pretty fast. If the guest house does not have wifi, you can purchase an Everest Link Carte to update your social media pages. Before we wrote an entire article on wireless access at the Everest Base Camp, I could not find much on the Internet and what the cost was.
4. Bakeries are the greatest enemy!
The major error we had was to go to a bakery and not eat new produce. After three days of walking and eating teak rice, we had all kinds of shops and bars in Namche Bazar. We were there. We heard fine stories of the local bakeries and looked for a piece of cake, but each one of us went through with a good piece of pie (I have to admit) (I must admit).
However, the day after I became sick, our guide asked us if we were in a bakery. As we decided, he looked at us and scared us, telling us that perhaps I was catching rice poisoning. The bakeries are famous for keeping food out of the refrigerator for those days, so you can finally eat food that tastes fine, but also contains many bacteria.
5. The EBC hike is fast!
He did not warn us, and I wondered why he told his customers about his answer but no one trust him. He was not alert. People see Western goods and think they eat them comfortably, but not less instantly. We recommend you go to bakeries, but ask if your food is fresh. If not, you can not take it, even if it sounds sacred. I finally hid behind rocks and bushes for almost a week on my hike. And you know, it’s all that…
