A heaven for the mountaineers! The trek to EBC from Lukla takes around 7-8 days including acclimatisation days and is one of it's own kind. I was taken aback by the beauty and thrill of the experience! Simply speechless!

One of best trek in the world but must prepared well in advance. We should not be negligence when trekking EBC and Cholapass. Altitude can kill. Proper acclimatization is very much essential.

I personally would not worry about emergency access on the EBC trek. You are never that far from people and phones or internet. But if you really want to be (almost) always able to make a phone call sat phones are the way to go. For Nepal your cheapest option is the Thuraya network (you can get a pay as you go SIM) and Thuraya phones (currently around 1000 US$ depending on where you buy)
Did i see Mount Everest from Plane? (5 Replies)
I was just wondering if i saw Mount Everest or not from the plane en route to Lhasa from Chengdu. I took a picture but can't work out whether or not it was everest as its not from the "normal" view. I know its quite a distance away though so was just wondering if it is possible to see it? Amazing views from the plane anway even if it wasnt Everest itself
