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.

Dear Ms. Pa***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.
There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
