If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
