Hi I'm very concerned re altitude sickness doing the Everest base camp trek as I already had mild symptoms in cusco, South America which is only 3000m+.
I'm looking at a tour which is 17 days from Kathmandu but really takes 9 days to get from there to ebc (via the usual flight to Lukla etc). The trip seems to have 2 "rest" days as part of this 9. The rest of the trip is obviously descent.
Is this going slow enough or as a novice who has never trekked at altitude should I be adding even more time?
Thanks for your help.
