Everest Base Camp, Kalapathar Trekking

Everest Base Camp - Kalapathar Trekking is famous trekking in Everest region which leads to the home of the legendary Sherpa people, on the foothill of the highest peak of the world, the Mt. Everest at 8848m. This trek follows the highly praised trekking route through the Dudh Koshi River to the Everest Base Camp. The excellent trek give the benefit to summit of Kalapathar peak (5545m) offering a spectacular panoramic view of Mount Everest, Nuptse, Pumori, Lhotse and others. During traveling through Khumbu Glacier, Gorak Shep, one is rewarded with some of the most dramatic landscapes. The trek can be treated as one of the adventurous trek in the Himalayas as it follows the route via Tengboche Monastery.

This unique trek gives more opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking view of Everest including several other similar peaks and to explore the Buddhists monasteries located at the world's highest elevation.

Day 01: Arrival and transfer to hotel in Kathmandu Upon arrival in Kathmandu.


Our airport representative will be waiting outside the airport terminal a few metres from the exit door. Please check your name at play card. He will bring you to hotel in kathmandu. The drive from the airport to the hotel is around 20 minutes

 

Day 2: Kathmandu (1360m)

In the morning we explore Kathmandu on an organised sightseeing tour. We visit Bodhnath Stupa, one of the biggest Buddhist shrines in the world, where we observe Buddhist monks in prayer in the monasteries surrounding the stupa. We also visit Pashupatinath, the most famous Hindu temple in the country, located on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Here we see Hindu holy men (sadhus) meditating, pilgrims bathing and occasionally funeral pyres burning on the ghats. The rest of our time in Kathmandu is free for further sightseeing and exploration. In the late afternoon you will be issued with your Trek Pack and departure information for the next morning.Meals included: 1 breakfast.

Day 03: Kathmandu to Lukla to Phakding

(Walking time: approx 3 hours) In the morning we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2827m). The flight itself is awe-inspiring as we fly parallel to the Himalayan giants bordering Nepaland Tibetan China. Flight time is about 40 minutes and we land at an airstrip built by Sir Edmund Hillary and the Sherpas in the mid-1960s. After landing we meet our porters who will carry our equipment during our trek. We also have time to explore the village before hitting the trail. The trek starts with a descent towards the Dudh Kosi River, where we join the main trail to Namche Bazaar. (Dudh means ’milk’ - the waters of the river are a strong milky white from glacial melt.) The walk is easy and after passing through the small villageof Ghat (2550m), we soon reach our lodge at Phakding.

Day 04: Phakding to Monjo to Namche Bazaar

(Walking time: approx 8 hours) It is a long day, but also essential that we ascend slowly on the route that eventually leads to Everest Base Camp. Sensible acclimatisation will ensure we are feeling good on our final days approaching the peak of Everest. We make a start from Phakding and cross the river to walk through tracts of blue pine and rhododendron forest that is very spectacular in the spring, when the flowers are in bloom. We cross the Dudh Kosi at Benkar and enjoy great views of the snow-capped peaks of Kusum Kanguru (6369m) and Thamserku (6623m). From here it is only a short walk to Monjo (2835m), where we arrive in time for lunch. Then the walking gets a little tougher and includes a steep ascent to Namche Bazaar. It is a short walk to the entrance of the national park, where our permits are checked before we descend quite steeply to again cross the Dudh Kosi to Jorsale (2805m). The trek continues upstream on generally flat terrain, crossing back to the right bank, to the confluence of the Bhote Kosi and Dudh Kosi rivers. After crossing a large and stable suspension bridge high above the river we climb steeply to the village of Namche Bazaar. A slow and steady pace is recommended on this section of the climb and we are encouraged to make the most of the fantastic photographic opportunities as the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Taweche come into view for the first time. You may notice you are travelling a little more slowly as the effects of altitude start to become apparent. Take your time on this path which is used by the local peoples as a ’foot highway’ on this important trading route. At Namche we stay in a lodge in the heart of the village and there is plenty of time to bargain in the shops for Tibetan artefacts or relax and marvel at the beautiful scenery.


Day 05: Acclimatisation day at Namche Bazaar (3446m)

We take a steep hike up to Songbuche and then to Everest Panaroma viewpoint (3900 m) from where we will be have great views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse,Island Peak Amadablamm Kangde ga, and Thamserku. We also visit Kunde hospital that was erected by Sir Edmund Hilary. Namche – Songbuche – Namche: 6 hrs trek


Day 06: Namche Bazaar to Khumjung (Walking time: approx 2 hours)

From Namche we walk up towards the park headquarters and then climb steeply above the main trail towards the small airstrip at Shyangboche. From here you can look down on the roofs of Namche way below and to the huge mountains across the valley. Our path then heads on flatter terrain to the Everest View Hotel, noted for its viewpoint, and given clear conditions we may enjoy an excellent panorama of towering Himalayan snow peaks. These include beautiful Ama Dablam and mighty Everest, prominently standing above all others at the head of the Dudh Kosi Valley. On a small ridge seen far below the summit of Everest we can spot the monastery at Thyangboche, a small speck against the gigantic mountain background. After some refreshment at the hotel we head down to the twin villages of Kunde and Khumjung, where we check into our lodge in time for lunch. In the afternoon it is worthwhile visiting the nearby small hospital run by Sir Edmund Hillary’s Himalayan Trust in Kunde and perhaps the Khumjung Monastery, where you may be fortunate enough to view a yeti skull!

Day 07: Khumjung to Thyangboche (Walking time: approx 6 hours)

From Khumjung we descend through the village and perhaps stop for a cup of coffee and cake at the local bakery before rejoining the main trail to Everest at Shanasa. Do look out for Danphe Pheasant and Himalayan Thar often seen on the high ground above the trail. We continue on to Trashinga and then descend steeply to cross the Dudh Kosi at Phunkitenga (3250m), where we take lunch. In the afternoon it is a long and steep climb through pine, fir, black juniper and rhododendron forest towards Thyangboche Monastery. We stay here for the night and experience great views of the peaks Kantega, Ama Dablam (perhaps the most beautiful peak in the region) and of course Mount Everest.


Day 08: Thyangboche to Dingboche (Trekking: approx 4 hours)

Today it is a very pleasant walk, ascending gradually high above the Imja Khola River and passing the tea houses at Orsho before crossing the river and old glacial moraines on our way to our lodge in the settlement of Dingboche. The scenery is spectacular and although Everest here disappears behind the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, the huge peaks that tower above the eastern end of the valley are ample compensation. We are now almost completely above the tree-line and, in clear conditions, can look out for spectacular sunsets here and on Ama Dablam.


Day 09: Dingboche( Rest Day and explore) (Acclimatization Day)

Before we ascend any higher we take another rest and acclimatization day and explore the beautiful Imja Khola Valley. Dingboche is located in a patchwork of small fields enclosed by stone walls protecting crops of barley and potatoes. An ascent of the hill behind our lodge hill will afford great views of the fifth highest mountain in the world, Makalu (8481m), which is not visible from the valley floor. Alternatively a walk up the valley towards Chukung is worthwhile. The views are fantastic in this valley; the towering south face of Lhotse to the north, Island Peak in the centre of the valley and the fluted ice-walls of unnamed peaks that line the southern end of the valley form a hauntingly beautiful sight. Unfortunately Everest is not visible from this village.

Day 10: Dingboche to Lobuche (Trekking: approx 6½ hours)

In the morning we ascend the small ridge behind the village above Pheriche Valley. From the chorten at the top, Taweche and Cholatse (6440m) make for a striking scene as they seem to lean forwards from across the valley in the west. To the north, Lobuje Peak (6119m) and the snowfields of Cho La dominate the skyline. The walking is now generally fairly flat on wide-open fields, but do take your time and ensure you are well hydrated. Late in the morning we cross the Khumbu Khola at Dughla (4620m) and take a light lunch at the foot of the huge terminal moraines of Khumbu Glacier, which flows off Everest. In the afternoon, there is a solid and quite steep climb on a rocky trail to the top of the moraines. On the crest of the ridge, we pass a line of memorial cairns, built in memory of Sherpas and other climbers who have died on the various Everest expeditions over the last 50 years. From here the view is spectacular - Pumori (7145m) and, across the border in Tibet, Changtse (7550m), are seen at the head of the valley whilst Everest remains hidden behind the towering walls of Nuptse andLhotse.


Day 11: Lobuche to Gorak Shep (Walking time: approx 3 hours)

After a leisurely breakfast we follow the broad valley running parallel to Khumbu Glacier. The trail ascends only gradually to the moraines of Changri Nup Glacier, but from here we make a series of small ascents and descents over a rocky trail lined with cairns that leads eventually to Gorak Shep (5160m). After lunch we set off uphill to Kala Patar (5630m) to experience the sensational sunset views from this amazing vantage point. It will probably take a good hour and a half to reach the summit from Gorak Shep, although lower viewpoints may provide views almost as good. In front of us are Pumori, Nuptse, Changtse, Ama Dablam, Taweche, Kantega and Everest - the highest mountain in the world. As we will be descending in fading light, please bring along a head torch for this excursion.


Day 12: Gorak Shep to Lobuche (Walking time: approx 7 hours)

We have wake up early for the trek along the glacier to Everest Base Camp, which takes around 3 hours. If we are trekking in the popular climbing period of March to May, we will almost certainly encounter yaks and porters supplying food and equipment to expeditions here. From Base Camp we do not get views of Everest, but we will be able to see the notorious Everest ice fall that flows from the Western Cwm, which is regarded as technically the hardest and most dangerous section of the mountain. We return to Gorak Shep for an early lunch before re-tracing our steps to Lobuche. Be prepared for a long and tiring day. The trek to Base Camp is optional so if you are feeling tired you can rest at Gorak Shep instead. Please note that depending on how everyone is feeling, it may be possible to descend to the lower altitudes of Pheriche rather than spending the night at Lobuje.


Day 13: Lobuche to Thyangboche (Walking time: approx 6 hours)

It is amazing how quickly we retrace the trail that was a challenge to ascend en route to Everest Base Camp. We should be well acclimatised and we head quickly back downhill to Dughla and then taking a different route following the wide alpine valley to Pheriche for a long tea break. There is a trekkers’ aid post here, supported by the Himalayan Rescue Association which although not manned year round is well worth a visit if open. From Pheriche we ascend a short steep trail to the top of a small ridge for great views of Imja Valley, Ama Dablam and Kantega, before taking lunch at Orsho. In the afternoon we again descend to Shomare and later pass through Lower Pangboche to reach the suspension bridge over the Imja Khola River and re-trace our steps to Debuche and on to Thyangboche.

Day 14: Thyangboche - Namche Bazaar - Monjo

(Walking time: approx 8 hours) From Thyangboche we descend steeply to the suspension bridge at Phunkitenga and after a welcome break and perhaps a cup of tea we cross the Dudh Kosi and ascend to Trashinga. From here the trail contours high above the valley through Shanasa before returning to Namche Bazaar, where we take lunch and enjoy a final opportunity to visit the shops in the bazaar. In the afternoon we descend steeply down to the large suspension bridge over the Dudh Kosi and follow the trail through Jorsale and back to Monjo, where we spend the night.


Day 15: Monjo - Lukla (Walking time: approx 5 hours)

There is no rush today as we retrace our steps back to Lukla. We take lunch in Phakding and, although the final ascent up to Lukla is a surprise for most trekkers, reach the airport in the early afternoon. Lukla is famous for its end of trek celebrations, although we should not overdo it, as the plane ride back to Kathmanduis not best enjoyed with a hangover!


Day 16: Fly out from Lukla to Kathmandu

We rise early in the morning to be ready for the arrival of our aircraft for the flight back toKathmandu. We are met at the airport and transferred to our hotel. at the afternoon self visiting

Day 17: Lukla to Kathmandu by air (1360m)

We rise early in the morning to be ready for the arrival of our aircraft for the flight back to Kathmandu. On arrival in Kathmandu we are met and transferred back to our starting hotel.

Treks Grades

Our Treks have been graded Easy, Moderate and Strenuous depending on their difficulty. (More difficult treks are possible, but we would tend to categorise them as expeditions). We have listed a definition for each category.

We strongly advise against being too ambitious first time out – most trekkers return to Nepal again and again you can gradually increase your trek grade each time.

Easy:

 These trips can be enjoyed by anyone who leads a reasonably active life. The walking part of the trip is fairly easy, usually between 5 and 6 hours a day.
Note: Even on a easy grade trek there will be tough uphill sections on some days.

Moderate:

You will be walking 5-7 hours a day and will encounter some steep uphill and down hill sections. Some days may be at altitude. You should be fit before considering taking moderate grade trek.

Strenuous:

A combination of moderate of strenuous walks, with some very steep uphill and down hill sections, often at altitude. You will generally be walking 6-8 hours a day. You should be fit and should prepare physically before taking a strenuous trek.

Please not that the grading system is not a straight forward measure of how for you are walking.
Rather it is an overall indication ho how tough it will be and it takes into account the number of hours trekking, altitude gain/ loss and trail conditions (rough track, steep uphill etc.) and usual temperatures. So even though a trek is grade easy it does not mean you will never feel tired. Similarly inexperienced trekkers need not necessarily avoid treks graded Strenuous.

Finness

On any trek, there are some steeps ascents and descents so you require a reasonable level of fitness. The more physically fit you are, the more easily your body will adapt to hiking in the Himalayas. All treks demand a good day’s walking and it goes without saying that you should be pretty certain that you will enjoy a walking holidays before you consider trekking in Nepal. However you don’t have to be young or super-ft and age in itself is no barrier. There is physical exertion, but it is sustainable. Most people in good health who have prepared physically will have no problem in enjoying themselves. Before making your choice, things to consider are the duration of your trip. Its grading, style of accommodation and maximum and average altitude.


Altitude and Acclimatization

It is common in the Himalayas to trek above 4,500 and sometimes 5,500m. There is no need to worry unduly about altitude, but above 3,000 air becomes thinner and your performance may be affected. No one understands why some people are affected and others not.
Being young strong and fit is no guarantee of success. The only way to acclimatize is to ascend slowly. Our routes have been carefully designed based a year of experience managing possible altitude related difficulties. On this trek we do not ascend above 5,600.

Be aware that altitude sickness can be fatal, so if your leader advises you to stay at a certain altitude or descend, please do as instructed. He has the experience and is there to ensure your safety. If you do need to descend you will be accompanied by one of our team and a porter and will be well looked after. The descent may be just a short – term measure and does not necessarily mean you will be unable to complete your ascent. There is no shame in being affected or not reaching the highest point on a trek.

In addition we carry a Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC) on all of your trekking trips in Nepal. If you are suffering form altitude sickness and conditions do not allow for an immediate descent your leader will arrange for you to use the PAC. The PAC works by increasing the pressure inside the chamber, using a foot pump. At high altitude, this increased pressure delivers a therapeutically significant amount of extra oxygen which simulates a descent.

    If you wear contact lenses, dust can be a big problem. If you are on a long trip you should also take the prescription for your glasses.

Insurance

Our tour prices do not include insurance however it is a condition of joining our tours that travelers are fully insured for any medical expenses they might incur while traveling. At the start of your tour the Tour Leader will ask to see your insurance document and will note down the policy number and emergency contact number.
We recommended a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers repatriation and evacuation in case of a medical emergency, cancellation and curtailment as well as baggage and valuables, If your tour involves certain adventurous activates (I.e. trekking, white water rafting or scuba diving etc) You will need to make sure your policy specifically covers these activates. You may also need specific cover for expensive camera equipment.

Many credit card companies offer “complementary travel insurance” however the majority of such policies offer virtually no cover and will not be accepted as adequate travel insurance. If you are planning on using credit card insurance you must bring along proof that the policy covers medical emergencies. Failure to be able to provide such proof to the Tour Leader will result in you being compelled to purchase a new approved policy before you can join the tour.


Vaccinations

It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain any vaccinations, Precautionary or preventative Medicines for the countries you are visiting – or any which may be required by your home country upon your return. To find out which, if any, Vaccinations are mandatory or recommended for your destination Contact your local doctor, Immunization Centre or Medical Centre for up-to-date information.

If you need to arrange vaccinations or a supply of preventative medicine (e.g. Malaria tablets), you should Contact your doctor at least two Months before you depart. Some Inoculations require more than one Visit and can take several weeks to Administer.


Carry your Certificate

You should be issued with an International Certificate of Vaccination for each vaccination. Always carry these with you on your travels; they could provide essential information for doctors in the event that you fall ill whilst traveling.


 

Malaria


Malaria is common in many parts of Africa, Asia and South America. Protection is in the form of tablets, taken either daily or weekly, or both. The course of tablets should normally begin 1-2 weeks before you depart, Continue throughout your travels and for 4 weeks after your return. Although you can obtain tablets from most pharmacies without prescription,
you must check that they are Appropriate for the area you are Visiting. There are many different Strains of malaria and a large number of them are drug-resistant. It may be Necessary for you to take a Combination of tablets for the region you are visiting.
No malaria tablets guarantee complete protection. The most Effective protection against malaria is to avoid being bitten. Mosquitoes Mostly bite at dusk and dawn so one of the best ways to minimize the Chance of being bitten is to wear long Trousers, long sleeves and socks at these times. You should take a good insect repellent and apply it liberally. Repellents with a high concentration of DEET (at least 35%) are generally considered the most effective.

Diarrhoea

Sampling the local food and drink is often one of the highlights of traveling. In most cases the food is Freshly prepared for you and is completely safe to eat, however it will probably contain ingredients that you are not familiar with or may be Prepared in a different way. This change in diet is one of the most common causes of travelers diarrhea. You can reduce the likelihood of suffering diarrhea if you treat food and drink with caution – at least in the early stages of your travels. In almost every country it is possible to buy bottled water. This is usually very cheap and a lot more convenient than trying to purify or filter tap water. Beware of ice in drinks and make sure you wash your hands frequenty.
In general we do not recommend the use of anti-diarrhea pills as in most Cases they do not cure the problem, they merely put it on hold. However, there are of course situations where ‘Blocking up’ may be desirable, for Instance if you are embarking on a long bus ride. Diarrhoea which lasts for longer than 48-72 hours, shows signs of blood or Mucus or which is concurrent with other symptoms, such as a headache or high temperature, should always be taken seriously. Seek medical advice
(your Tour Leader can assist you with this).


 

Dehydration

In deserts, in the tropics and at high Altitude, your body can lose a lot of water. Dehydration also occurs when you are suffering from diarrhoea. The best way to avoid dehydration is to drink plenty of fluids. In most countries you can obtain “rehydration salts” or “electrolyte Solution”. Although these do not taste great, they restore the salts lost by your body. You can also make your own rehydration mixture by adding 4 tablespoons of sugar and ½ teaspoon of salt to one liter of clean water.
 

Emergency & Rescue

Trekkers should be aware that there is very little in the way of rescue organization for handling trekker's emergencies in Nepal. If you are trekking with a reputable trekking agency then their staff will be trained to handle most contingencies. if you are traveling independently then you will have to rely on your own initiative to handle any problems. This is why trekking alone is foolhardy in the extreme.

At all times try to be aware of the location of possible sources of help, medical clinics, police or army posts etc. Try to find out where there are working telephones or radios as you pass along the trails.

At all times try to be aware of the location of possible sources of help, medical clinics, police or army posts etc. Try to find out where there are working telephones or radios as you pass along the trails. All trekkers should make sure that they are covered by a suitable travel insurance policy. This, at least, must cover the cost of a helicopter rescue, which is the only practical way of evacuating a seriously ill or injured patient from most of the trekking areas. It is essential to leave details of this policy with a responsible agency in Kathmandu. Either your trekking agency or your embassies are the obvious choices. Registering your details and intended plans with your embassy in Kathmandu is an extremely sensible step to take.

In the event that you do have a problem, and that problem cannot be solved with the resources at hand, then communications facilities must be located. Telephones or radios can be hard to find and may be a day or more away from the incident site. If it is possible to send a reliable person for help make sure that a note is sent detailing the location of the patient, the problem being experienced, specifying what help is needed. List what actions you are going to take in the interim. Fortunately, these days, helicopters are readily available, at a price, from Kathmandu and Pokhara. If a message can be sent then it is likely that a rescue can be mounted reasonably quickly.
