At Lukla we will be meet our porters and will head north from the airstrip to Chablung (2700m). Here we will cross the Tharo Kosi river on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge we can see the peak of Kusum Kangru (6367m), which is the most difficult of the so-called “trekking peaks”. Beyond the Tharo Kosi the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat (2590m), we will cross a ridge marked with painted mani stones and climb to Phakding where we will stay overnight. All meals included.

From Phakding we follow the valley of the Dudh Kosi River, staying on the west bank of the river. We climb steeply over a rocky ridge towards Benkar (2710m). From here the trail continues alongside the river. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. In both the early autumn and late spring, the flowers on this portion of the trek make it a beautiful walk. We cross the Kyashar Khola River and climb out of the valley to Monjo (2840m).

Vital information

******* Climate and Seasonality *******

Nepal is subject to monsoon which determines the choice of trekking areas depending on the season: Spring Seasons [March to May] is ideal to watch the explosion of vegetation, including rhododendrons, and from around the Annapurna sanctuary trek to Everest base camp trek, Generally clear skies in the morning, marked cloudiness in the late afternoon. The more we advance towards the month of May (monsoon), the more clouds rise early.

[Mid September to November] This is the main trekking season in Nepal. Day temperatures in Kathmandu are approx. above 20degC. Skies are usually clear and days on trek are sunny and mild with clear mountain views. Nights will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as to -5degC at the higher altitudes.

Summer Season Starts from June to September. Dolpo trekking and Mustang trekking of Nepal, and Tibet tour can be done in the monsoon.

Winter, from Mid December to late February, the cold is dry, the clear sky, the sunshine ... Many benefits without the tourist season. For example, short trek like chisopani and nagrkot trek,ghorepani poonhill trekking,Ghandruk Village trek would ideal for Winter Treks.

******* Travel Insurance *******

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses.

For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.

Wonderful Everest view trek

As for my recommendation and experience, I would like to share this information with you. First, I will say that my guide and porter were wonderful, kind and caring. They were very attentive and eager to show me a good time in their country. Your guide and porter were wonderful and did their best. I enjoyed listening to them talk to each other and tried to pick up few words from their conversation.
I would like to travel with you again and would like to recommend your company to anyone interested to travel Nepal.

Thank you,
Rosemary Jeffrey

FAQS

Everest view trek is a moderate Adventure Trek. But, a reasonable level of fitness is required .If you are relatively fit and don’t have time for longer trek. This short Everest view trek in Khumbu would be ideal options. There are few steep ascent and descents walking. So, this trek isn’t suitable for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles. Anyone with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor. We suggest you to do some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before embark on your journey.

We use standard rooms at quality hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the Everest View trek routes, mountain lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bon fire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be always outside the room.

That very much depends on how much use you intend to get out of it. Reasonable quality gear is available in Kathmandu for a fraction of the price of the real deal. We will help out you to find good standards gears in Kathmandu.
