There is the possible packing list for your Everest Advanced Base Camp trek. You need good quality trekking gear.
The Everest Advanced Base Camp trek is the world’s highest trekking route, from 5150m to 6500m. You must take the time to acclimatize properly before ascending to the higher camps, because the high altitude sickness is a serious environment-related illness that can strike anyone.
Furthermore, daytime temperatures on the glacier is still freezing even during the summer. Light snowfalls are not uncommon, and at times it may rain. These increase the difficulty and risk.
If your body condition doesn’t allow you to finish the ABC trek, or any bad weather and unsafe trail conditions break your plan, don’t be disappointed. The easier EBC trek is also a good choice.

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Sorry we do not have any group tour in Jan or Feb to Kailash as there will be heavy snow and the road will be blocked, and also the area would be closed, and no one do the business there, no hotel, no restaurants there. So from Nov to March we would not send any groups there.
If you would like to do this tour, you must plan it from April to Oct. and at present we have the group tour in next 6th May and 29th May, and we will have more available date in future. if you are interested in joining in this, please kindly let me know. Best regards.
