Trip Overview

The classic  Everest trek will experience an unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural Diversity. The immense contrasts in altitudes, type of vegetation, and mix of lifestyles are the main attractions of this trek. One can enjoy beautiful mountain views, verdant terraces Himalayan streams, and waterfalls as the trail crosses through villages and landscapes covered by rhododendrons, magnolia, and giant forests. The mountains to be sighted during the trek are Gaurishanker, Number Himal, Kwangde, Twache, Nuptse, Lhotse, Amadablam, Thamsherku, and Everest.

The trek begins at Jiri (1905m). The trail heads eastward through the lovely forested hills of  Solu and over the 3530m Lamajura Pass. Monasteries and panoramic mountain views lie ahead. The portion of the trek from  Jiri to Lukla is often quiet, and therefore much better trekking country. We cross the Lamjura pass, and  Thaksindo before descending towards the raging river of the Dudh Kosi. We follow the “Dudh Koshi River” north through terraced hillsides and small villages to join the main  Everest trail below Lukla.

 

Trip Highlights:

Lamjura pass. Experience Sherpa culture, Explore the Sherpa museum in Namche Bazar and the Panoramic view from Syanbuche. Tyangboche Monastery and amazing mountain views from Kalapatar as well as glacier from Everest base camp.

Unpleasant weather conditions, congested traffic in the Airport, unmanaged runway, topographical difficulties, etc. are the significant reasons for flight delays/cancellations in mountain airports such as Lukla, Jomsom, Simikot, Talcha, Juphal, Tumlingtar, Phaplu. So, if you intend on trekking to Everest, Dolpo, Annapurna, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, etc; arranging an additional one or two days in your trip is highly more suitable. This will help in case of flight delay/cancellation and thus board on the pre-planned international flight.

Useful Information

Arrival:

You will be met at the airport by our representative; holding a play card with your name on it, in front of the arrival gate. After the greeting, you will be transferred to the Hotel, where rooms have been booked for you. In the evening, our trekking guide gives you a trip briefing about transportation, day-to-day lifestyle, difficulty, altitude sickness, accommodation, mountains, culture, food, etc.

Equipment List:

This is a guideline for the gear that is suggested during the trekking. You may consider bringing it with you when you are doing a teahouse or Camping (Tent) trek with us; Most of the gear can be purchased or hired in Kathmandu at reasonable prices.

The following basic equipment checks list help you with your packing.15 kg (33 lbs) is the maximum weight limit for the duffel bag plus your hand luggage for Domestic flights. If you have excess luggage, you have to pay extra money as per airline rules. Per client, 12 to 14 kg weight is limited on the trek.

Visa:

You can get your Nepal visa either at the Tribhuvan International airport in Kathmandu or any land border when you arrive in Nepal or leave home.

Temperatures & Clothing:

Spring and autumn are the main trekking season in Nepal. During the spring season (March-May) is usually warm (T-shirt, sandals, light pants or skirts) in the day in Kathmandu and in autumn it is a bit chilly (light fleece or windproof top) in the afternoon.

In the afternoon for a fleece, sweater, or light Jacket, and evening, cold enough that you can wear a light down Jacket, if you’re sitting outside in the much colder winter, you won’t leave the hotel without your down jacket. It’s not snowing in Kathmandu; leave your snow boots behind. Keens or lightweight sports shoes, sandals great for wandering around Kathmandu and for trekking in lower altitudes

Trekking is a mixed bag of temperatures. LAYERS are the key as hot can change quickly to freezing crossing the passes, and snowfalls are common. We often have some rain below 3000 meters in the spring and early autumn. It can rain hard in the summer. Have a wide range of layer-able trekking clothes for summer to winter temperatures. Keep a lightweight down jacket or windproof jacket with you at all times, available inexpensively in Kathmandu. A lightweight rain poncho for trekking is recommended in spring and summer, Be prepared; Check our GEAR LIST for all details on gear, shoes, clothing, electronics and medicine for the trek.

There are lots of real gear shops (North Face, Mountain Hardware, Marmot, Sherpa Gear) and of course many fake ones in Kathmandu, so if you don’t think you have the right gear starting the trip it will be easy to pick up stuff once in Kathmandu. We provide sleeping bags, duffel bags, and down Jackets, especially for the camping trek and peak climbing. If you are doing a tea house trek you can buy or hire (rent) trekking gear in Kathmandu at a reasonable price.

Dress conservatively in Kathmandu and on the trail as a rule. Shorts are okay if they aren’t too short; a mini-skirt isn’t recommended. Sleeveless t-shirts are fine, but perhaps avoid tank- tops on the trail. Super tight doesn’t go over so well with the village elders.

Important Documents:

Hotel / Accommodations:

We provide accommodation in a standard 3*star hotel in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Nepalgung, and Lumbini as well as Bhutan, Tibet, and India Tour as per itinerary and stay in the best available guesthouse in the mountains during the trek. You may have to share a bed with a companion during the mountainous trip. But if you need, a single supplement you have to pay extra yourself.

Food:

You will be served with bed and breakfast during your stay in Kathmandu. All other meals Lunch and Dinner will be paid for clients themselves but Himalayan High Path Adventure provides welcome dinner before the trek. We provide 3 meals (breakfast, Lunch, dinner) during the trek. 

When you are on the trip, you will get the menu and choose a food that you like to have but we suggest not to have oily foods or nonvegetarian (meat is not fresh) foods. Sometimes we prefer to eat local food such as Dal Bhat (Lentil soup and rice), noodles, Tibetan bread made of buckwheat, spaghetti, different types of soup fried potato, and many more.

Best time to travel:

The best time for trekking in Nepal is either in the spring season (March to May) or in autumn (September to November). It offers magnificent views in these two seasons. Trekking is also possible in other seasons despite having extremely cold weather, climate, and temperatures which may not suit, and we do not guarantee to see the panoramic views.

Points to consider:

The mountain flight and Kathmandu /Lukla / Kathmandu flight may be delayed depending on the weather conditions. It is very likely to delay the flights from one to two hours until the next day. In case you miss the scheduled flight due to the weather conditions, you will have to wait or you may pay US$ 600 for an emergency helicopter lift. So, it would be better if you keep a few days more in reserve to cope with such conditions. Depending on the time and situation concerning your safety and security, your Guide may change the itinerary in Mutual understanding.

Tips for staff:

A tip is expected, so we recommend at least $ 10 – $15 per client/per day tips for the staff end of the trekking. Please bring Nepali currency (NPR) with you on the trek for your expenses (see cost includes/excludes section) and for tips. It’s nice to buy the drinks for the staff and the group will celebrate the last day party in the night.
