The Everest Base Camp Trek via three challenging passes is one ultimate experience. The route of the trail here is more challenging and longer compared to other base camp treks. This is because the trail will take a traveller through three difficult high passes that are not even mentioned on the standard Everest trail. The name of the three passes is the Renjo La Pass, the Kongma La Pass and the Cho La pass. Each of these passes share an altitude that ranges around 5000 m. Travellers will also get to ascend other three walking passes, which are – Kala Pattar, Gokyo Ri and the Chukkung Ri. These passes are to be found tucked under the imposing Lhotse-Nuptse wall. It is from here that travellers can get to view amazing new vistas of the Mt. Everest and should be considered particularly by experienced trekkers and those who are keen photographer.

The Challenging Trek to Everest Base Camp via Three Passes(Renjo La pass/ Chola pass/ Kongma la pass)

The journey will begin from Kathmandu to Lukla by flight. From there, travellers will have to go through Namche Bazaar before they are able to break the Everest Base Camp trail and head off towards the west towards Thame and Nangpa Valley, which are close to Tibetan border. The toughest journey will be via the first of the three passes. This is the Renjo La pass. However, there are rewarding views awaiting travellers at the end of the journey through the pass and they are the stunning views of mountains belonging to both the East and the West. This will be followed by a leisurely descent to the Gokyo Lakes, before travelers climb to the famous Gokyo Ri viewpoint. Your journey will continue over the Ngozumpa Glacier until you reach the next high pass. This is the Cho La pass and will involve walking up the steep scree. Your journey will be frequented by icy weather and by small glacier, before zigzagging down to the other side.

The journey will soon get connected to the main Everest trail, which will continue up the Base Camp and Kala Patthar. Next travellers will have to descend down to the Lobuche village, before they can head over to the Kongma La pass in the East to the Chukung. The trail takes the traveller to the next destination, which is the Chukung Ri – the third peak of the journey. The peak is situated above a village and allows travellers to enjoy spectacular views of the Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. Travellers will be completing the journey with a return trip to Lukla. This means they will have to undertake a journey down the main Everest trail, which will take the traveller through many Sherpa villages and its beautiful monastery. You can visit the many monasteries and have a look around to understand their rich culture and tradition. The hospitability of the people will make the trip feel very pleasant.

The two most pleasant seasons for trekking in Nepal are spring and autumn. The spring season is considered to be March to May. During the spring months flowers are in bloom in the forests so it can be quite beautiful though it can also be bit cloudy, especially in the afternoon.  Autumn season is considered September through November. In autumn season you will get the best mountain views, with clear skies usually all day long. The fall season is slightly cooler with average temperatures. December is also generally the driest month of the year. Trekking in Nepal is possible at any time of the year. It is worth remembering that we will get 75 percent of annual rainfall from the mid June through the August. This period is considered as the monsoon season. Winter in Nepal is considered December through February. These months are the coldest in temperatures depending on where you are. At higher altitudes in the Himalayas temperatures will drop below freezing and it can be extremely cold at night. 

A typical day of trekking

The trekking day begins early at around 6.30AM in the morning with a cup of wake up tea. Before breakfast, pack your duffel bag which is carried by porters by keeping some essential things in your daypack. After breakfast, we are usually starting the good morning walk. After 3-4 hrs walking, we stop for lunch. Allowing about 1 - 2 hours for lunch break then we continue the walk to the destination where we stay overnight. We reach the teahouse/ camp by afternoon, as the afternoon walk is generally shorter than the morning. Check in the room and having afternoon tea, side trips or other activities are generally organized. You can spend the afternoon as you wish then meet for the dinner around 7PM and sleep.

Geography of Nepal

Nepal covers the land area of 147,181 sqkm, stretching 800km from east to west and 90 to 230km from north to south. Nepal is land-locked between China (including the Chinese autonomous region of Tibet) and India. Nepal has three geographic regions; the mountainous Himalayan belt (including 8 of the 14 highest mountain peaks in the world), the hill region and the plains region. Nepal contains the greatest altitude variation on earth, from the lowland Terai, at almost sea-level to Mount Everest at 8848 metres. Nepal is divided into five development regions and seventy-five districts. Where as high Himalayas occupy 16% of the total land area of Nepal with elevation ranging from 4,000m to above 8,848m. This region accommodates the eight of the highest peaks in the world; Mt. Everest (8848m), Kanchanjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Mt. Makalu (8463m), Manaslu (8163m) and Annapurna I (8091m).

Currency in Nepal

Nepali Rupee notes come in Rupees 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000 denominations. Coins come in Rs. 1, 2 and 5 denominations. Foreign currencies must be exchanged only through banks or authorized money exchangers. Banks are usually open from 09.30 am to 3.00 pm Sundays through Thursdays and from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm on Fridays. Saturdays are closed.


Credit Cards


All major cards are accepted for tourist services. There is usually a 4% mark-up on top of the price.

Climate change

Nepal is one of the most vulnerable countries in South Asia to climate change, yet it has limited capacity to address impacts of climate change or to take advantage of the opportunities. It has a highly variable climate and fragile ecosystems. The Himalayan glaciers are retreating faster than any other major body of ice. With climate change, climate variability, a driver of poverty in a country where 60% of the population is reliant on agriculture, will only increase. The monsoon rains are already more intense, but of shorter duration, and are arriving later, which has a devastating impact on the rice fields. The Greater Himalaya region is the water tower of Asia. Nepal sits at a strategic point, in the headwaters of the Ganges basin. 500 million people live in this basin, which is one of the most flood prone in the world. Currently Nepals Himalayan Rivers supply 70% of the dry season water in the Ganges and 30% of the peak flood waters. Nepals potential for hydropower is 100 times its existing energy use. Current development of rivers are sub-optimal, focusing solely on hydro rather than also storing water in the summer to use for irrigation during the rest of the year and reduce flooding.

Clothing in Nepal

From April to the end of September, it is warm in Kathmandu. In Nepal clothing for travelling purpose should be comfortable and light weight. You can also wear longer shorts provided that it is weather-friendly. In the months of October to the end of March, days are usually warm and evenings are cool. Put on your summer clothes during the day time but in the evening and night it is advisable to carry a light jacket. Winter season starts from December to February. One must be equipped with sufficient winter wears like down jackets, sweaters, trousers etc to stay protected from the cold. In accordance to Nepali weather you can have your clothes well-packed in your luggage or you can also purchase clothes of your choice and needs from the clothing stores in Kathmandu.

Health issues/Altitude sickness

Those in good health should have no difficulty traveling to Nepal. But people with health conditions including asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, epilepsy and cardiac problems should seek a doctor’s approval before planning a trip to Nepal.
Trekking and Climbing in Nepal involves high altitude and can be strenuous.Simple headache, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders can happen before the acclimatization. Altitude sickness, if not treated when symptoms first appear, can lead to death. Often known as AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness, it can ruin a Treks and Climbings and should be treated very seriously. The Himalayan Mountains begin where other mountain ranges end.  As altitude increases, specially above 3,000 metres, the air becomes thinner, creating certain difficulties for the human body. Youth, strength and fitness make no difference here. The only prevention is to give ones body time to adjust to high altitude. Those who go too high too fast are liable to be victims of Acute Mountain Sickness.  To minimize its threat, we recommend following these advice:

 

  1. Drink adequate fluids.  At 4,300 metres for example, the body requires 3 to 4 litres of liquid a day.  At low altitudes try to drink at least 1 litre a day.
  2. Accept the fact that you cannot go very high if your time is short.
  3. Learn to recognize the symptoms of AMS: headache, nausea, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, fluid retention and/or swelling of the body.  The cure is to climb no higher until the symptoms have disappeared.
  4. Do not expect everyone in your group to acclimatize at the same rate.  If you experience such discomforts, tell the accompanying travel High Solu facilitators immediately.
  5. For the sake of safety, if the trek leader deems it necessary to ask a participant who is suffering from AMS to descend, he will have the authority to do so even though it may go against the will of that participant.

People and Religions of Nepal

Nepalese people are mainly divided into two distinct groups, the Indo-Aryans and the Mangoloids. Since 2008AD, Nepal has been declared a secular country. The Hindu Temples and Buddhist Shrines are scattered all over the Kingdom. Nepal is the birthplace of Lord Buddha, Herald of Peace, The Light of Asia. Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims and Christians live together in harmony. And other nature worshippers, too, exist here. Ethnic diversity and custom of Nepal make Nepal the most fascinating tourist destination in the world. Official statistics indicates that Nepali population of around 35 millions includes more than 90 ethnic groups speaking 100 different languages and dialects.

History of Nepal

Nepal has witnessed many rulers and dynasties play contributing roles in moulding Nepal to present day’s Modern Nepal. Kirantis ruled Nepal from 9th century B.C. to 1st century A.D. Later Lichchhavis took over Kiranti from 3rd to 13th century and then were followed by Thakuri belonging to Malla dynasty. Then Shah Dynasty held the reign. Prithvi Narayan Shah is solely responsible for today’s modern day Nepal for he is the one who united different kingdoms into one single nation in 1769. In 1846, the Kot massacre led by Junga Bahadur Rana backseated the power of monarchy and made Rana regime more powerful. In 1950 Tribhuvan with the support from India restored monarchy. A coalition government comprising the Nepali congress party and the Ranas was thereafter installed with the promise of free elections in 1952. In 1960, Mahendra, son of Tribhuvan tactically established Panchayat system, meaning ‘five councils system’, by engineering a coup, declaring a new constitution, imprisoning all the leaders of the then government and enforcing a ban on all political activities. People’s movement of 1990 opened up a new chapter for a decade of democracy in Nepal which led to multiparty democracy with constitutional monarchy. Democracy came with heavy price leading to incompetent political leaders, political conflicts, Maoist insurgency,corruptions and downfall in national economy. Royal family massacre in 2001 left whole world in complete shock. Gynendra was crowned Nepal’s king after his brother, Birendra’s assassination. With the advent of 2006 all major political parties committed to reform their past mistakes and Maoist rebels came together with the support from Nepali people and jointly went on several days strikes to restore democracy. Finally,Gynendra handed over the political power to Nepali people and democracy was once again restored in Nepal.Then maoists has been the biggest political party of Nepal 2008 election. Nepal recently(September 2015) declared the new constitution for the country.
