About the trip:
The Trek to Everest Basecamp is, for many women, the trip of a lifetime. Whether you get to Everest Basecamp depends on your conditioning (under your control) and your acclimatization (which is genetic and not under your control). Any basically healthy woman can acquire the physical fitness necessary to enjoy this trip, and being in good shape is essential. Previous high altitude experience is not necessary. Even more essential is a positive attitude, an open mind, and a sense of adventure. While challenging with both strenuous and invigorating hiking, this three-week trek is a wonderful journey to a part of the world dominated by high Himalayan peaks and a culture that is rapidly changing and yet still grounded in ancient tradition.
