5 Best Side Trips of Everest Base Camp Trek!

Also, please note that for a trek like Everest Base Camp Trek, side trips are more than just cute good-to-have additions to the main trek. They are the excursions that will make sure that you are acclimatized well enough to fully enjoy the main trek. Basically, due to the altitude gain in the trek, there are two acclimatization breaks during a trek to Everest Base Camp: one at Namche and another at Pheriche/Dingboche. During these breaks you stay two nights at the same spot to give your body the chance to get used to the rarefied atomosphere. And the best way to increase your acclimatization is by going high during the day and coming back to sleep at a lower altitude. And the worst thing you can do is to stay at the same spot lazily throughout the day, or worse doze off. For one of the things that happens during acclimatization is that your blood thickens which increases the chance of internal blood clots especially if you are inactive.
