Trip Overview

The Everest trek facilitates crossing three high passes which are not on the standard Everest trail, Renjo La (5,388m/17,513ft), Cho La (5,380m/17,650ft) and Kongma La (5,535m/18,159), and also offering the opportunity to explore the Everest region at its best. The high passes trek tends to be more challenging and longer than the average Everest base camp trek.

It crosses through high-altitude alpine forests, providing rare encounters of Himalayan flora and fauna. The hospitality offered by the inhabitants of the region, Sherpa, is commendable.

Catching a glimpse of few of the Eight-thousanders located in the region, namely; Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Maklau, Nuptse, Pumori, and Amadablam, can be overwhelming.

21 days of continuous trekking up the mountain can be very challenging and exhausting. One can have spare days en route to ensure plenty of time to acclimatize, moreover, the assistance provided by the guides and Sherpa will make your trip more comfortable. They are trained in treating minor sicknesses on the trek.

The trek does not require any climbing experience, therefore, one with minimal trekking experience can choose this trek.

Useful information before joining this trip

Trekking Group
For this Everest 3 Passes trek, in our trekking group there will be one trek leader, one assistant trek leader and one Sherpa porter for each group of two trekkers. Generally in our group the minimum number of tourist will be two and the maximum group size is ten. For single traveler, we organize the trip with single supplement.

Meals and Accommodation
In Kathmandu we use deluxe hotel to ensure a comfortable stay and relaxed environment before and after your adventure. All breakfasts are included at the hotel in Kathmandu. Rooms throughout the trip are in twin share. A single supplement room is available at an additional cost.

While on the trek, full board of meal (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and tea & coffee) will be provided. This is a lodged based trek so we use foods from the lodges on our entire trekking time. The lodges we overnight provide good quality food in sufficient quantities.

Whilst trekking on the Everest, the accommodation is in guesthouses/ Mt. Lodge which are basic structures, generally with shared facilities but very comfortable. In some guesthouses, showers are available; where there are no showers; there are private facilities in which you can sponge bath.

Acclimatization
We are experts at operating adventure trips at high-altitude destinations. Every trip we run has a realistic acclimatization program. Our treks are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness, and our leaders are trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.

Our Trek Leaders and Staffs
Your Trek Leader’s role is to ensure all aspects of the trip run smoothly. They will share their local knowledge, advice on how to fill your free time and co-ordinate the day to day running of the tour – although occasionally he may need your understanding if things do not go according to plan. If you have any problems on the tour, please let your Trek Leader know so that steps can be taken to put it right.

We are a well stabilized adventure company and we employed professional trek leader (who are based on English speaking and few are multi-lingual's) and required crew member (they have basic knowledge of communication). We also provide the training to our staff increasing their work efficiency. And our guides are intimately familiar with all local castes and customs along the trails and will share with you many cultural insights that are not covered in any guide book. You will have good chance to learn Nepali phrases, cultural things and more on your Trekking. Nepal Vision trained its guide/trekking staff on following course.

Acclimatization
Our itinerary specially tailored considering with a high degree of minimization of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Normally, altitude sickness stars from 3,600 meters/11808 feet and there is no problem below this standard. During your trip this is a best solution go slowly with body acclimatization. Consider in the higher altitude there is less oxygen in the air. Suppose, crossing high passes more than 5,000 meters/ 16,400 feet, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Your body needs many days to acclimatization during the travel in high Himalaya.

Check out "Altitude illness" by Dr Jim Duff

Diamox (Acetazolamide) 
Diamox (Acetazolamide) allows you to breathe faster so that you metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. Since it takes a while for Diamox to have an effect, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before you go to altitude and continue for at least five days at higher altitude. The recommendation of the Himalayan Rescue Association Medical Clinic is 125 mg. twice a day (morning and night). (The standard dose was 250 mg., but their research showed no difference for most people with the lower dose, although some individuals may need 250 mg.) Possible side effects include tingling of the lips and finger tips, blurring of vision, and alteration of taste. These side effects may be reduced with the 125 mg. dose. Side effects subside when the drug is stopped. Contact your physician for a prescription. Since Diamox is a sulfonamide drug, people who are allergic to sulfa drugs should not take Diamox. Diamox has also been known to cause severe allergic reactions to people with no previous history of Diamox or sulfa allergies. Frank Hubbell of SOLO recommends a trial course of the drug before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat.

Travel Insurance
To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in this challenging adventure. You should be careful about your travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, cancellation of trip, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended.

If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof you can pay for it. Nepal Vision Treks have an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you/your insurance once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism or you may have a difficult time settling a claim.

Vaccination:
Vaccination is most important while travelling as to prevent you from the possible diseases. For traveling to Nepal; we recommend you to take a vaccination of Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A etc. However it is not really a must to have but it is recommended. You should check up with your doctor prior to the departure to your trip. Your doctor will have access to the most up to date information on the required vaccinations for the country you will be visiting.

Physical and Mental Requirements
Trekkers who are making their plan to travel in the Himalaya, most require three basic components of preparation - aerobic, strength, and mental. Aerobic conditioning is important primarily because you will trekking in thin air, up to 50% less than at sea level. With good aerobic conditioning you will be able to minimizing the potential effects of Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS). Hiking for at least two hours per day with some weight on your back is the best way to prepare yourself for trekking. Running, cycling (outdoor or stationary), Nordic track, hill climbing, or any exercise that gets your heart rate into the aerobic range for sustained periods of time.

Every day you will walk in the Himalaya around 4 to 7 hrs and reaches at highest place to 5550m/18204 feet. So, health is a most essential part for your adventure travel. Nepal Vision treks most require your medical fitness certificate prior to your booking. Before the trip booking with us we suggest you to consult with your Medical Doctor and in his/her references go for your trip booking process.

Trekking in the Himalayas is a relatively safe activity and mishaps or problems are usually minor. However, unpleasant things can occur on a long trek. You might have a bout of mild illness, not sleep as well as usual, find the trek pace too fast or slow any number of things might be annoying or stressful during some part of your trek. Before you leave for Nepal, think about the journey as more than just a quest to reach a destination. Try to imagine your trip as an opportunity to experience whatever happens as an essential part of the journey. It doesn’t matter so much whether you actually reach your ultimate goals of your trek or not but You should be prepared to find joy and fulfillment in all the moments of your trip, including the less pleasant ones that you hadn’t expected. Preparing to keep a very positive frame of mind throughout your trip, along with good physical conditioning, will insure that you are ready to experience all the wonders of Nepal.

Health and Fitness for trekker
We strongly recommend our clients for consulting the doctor before planning your holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local GP about which vaccinations to have before you arrive in Nepal. Your doctor will advise current inoculation requirements. If a doctor has recommended against travel or indicated travel may be inconvenient then inform us of the details. On all trekking and exploratory trips technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination.

Porter Care:
We are very sincere using porters for our treks. Our porters are fully equipped, insured from the company. On trek; the maximum weight allowance for porter carrying is 15kgs/33 pounds. We are closely working with international porter’s progress in Nepal and strongly care of porter’s rights solely against any exploitation during trip.

Recommended books & Reading:
Prior to the departing to Nepal or at its mountain, it is always good to have reading some travel reference books to know much about the country, its peoples and customs which help you a lot to prepare yourself for traveling smoothly. The books are- Lonely Planet of Nepal, Nepal Travel Guide book, Trekking in the Everest Region Etc.

Ethical and environmental considerations
The Nepal Vision Treks is committed to adopting a responsible attitude to the areas we visit. We are guests of the communities visited and with some thought and care we can ensure that everyone benefits from the experience. We have developed a Responsible Tourism policy which aims to ensure that the Nepal Vision treks and its clients act in a way that is socially, environmentally and culturally sound.

On this trip: Our policy of staying in locally owned accommodation, having local group members and using transport owned and operated by local people wherever possible. Our small groups (maximum of 10 people) have a minimal impact on the Himalayas' fragile environment as we explore predominantly on foot. All trek guides are responsible for ensuring that the guests understand the nature of the environment that they are in and minimize the impact that they may have.

Charity: We work in partnership with rural village communities. We work with some of the world’s poorest communities where three out of four children die before the age of five. We also support local people to develop a balance between their needs and the wildlife with which they share the natural habitat and ecosystems.

Clothing and Equipment

Correct Clothing & Equipments are essential for a safe and enjoyable trek. Experienced trekkers will often take only a selection of these items based on what has worked in the past. Please find the equipment list below for your personal use during your travel with us.

FOOTWEAR
» RUNNING SHOES » : 1 pair for casual Comfortable support shoes wear on lighter walking days.
» LIGHT HIKING BOOTS » : 1 pair of sturdy hiking boots in which you should wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock comfortably, either wool or synthetic. Sole should be flexible but still provide enough support for your feet. Boots should be very water repellent.
» HIKING GAITERS (Optional) » : 1 pair keeps rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn.
» WOOL SOCKS » : 3 pair heavyweight wool socks to be worn over the liner socks. When layering socks, check fit over feet and inside boots. Remember to keep one fresh, dry pair of socks available at all times. Socks with padded shins are especially nice with boots.
» LINER SOCKS » : 3 pair of smooth thin wool, nylon or Capilene to be worn next to the skin. This reduces the incidence of blisters and hot-spots and makes the outer sock last longer before needing to be changed. They should fit well with your heavyweight socks.

CLOTHING
» LIGHTWEIGHT LONG UNDERWEAR » : 2 pair, tops & bottoms, Capilene, other synthetic or wool. No Cotton. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-T-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility.
» LIGHT TREKKING PANTS » : Lightweight nylon pants designed to be used while trekking. They are extremely air permeable, dry quickly and provide sun protection. Zip-off lower leg sections are convenient for switching to shorts.
» T-SHIRTS » : Lightweight crew style t-shirt that wicks away moisture. Shirt can be made of any synthetic material.
» BANDANA » : Bring bandanas for face masks and other tasks.
» SYNTHETIC/SOFT SHELL JACKET » : A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover.
» INSULTED DOWN-JACKET » : Medium to heavy weight with hood.
» HARD SHELL JACKET WITH HOOD » : We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, underarm zips, and no insulation. This outer layer protects against wind and rain.
» HARD SHALL PANTS » : Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.

HANDWEAR
» FLEECE/SOFT SHELL GLOVES » : 1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands warmer when wet than lighter polypropylene or Capilene.
» SHELL GLOVES WITH INSULATION » : 1 pair. Insulation does not need to be removable. A good quality ski glove is sufficient.

HEADWEAR
» HEADLAMP & SPARE BATTRIES » : A good quality climber’s headlamp. For use at night, bring extra batteries!
» SUN HAT » : The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well. A Buff is recommended to reduce the amount of dust inhaled while trekking and reduces the chance of infection.
» NECK GAITER OR BUFF » : Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.
» GLACIER GLASSES » : 100% UV, IR, high quality optical lenses designed for mountain use, must have side covers, leashes, and a nose guard is particularly helpful. No more than 8% light transmission. If you wear contact lenses we recommend packing a spare pair of glasses—it is a good idea to have these with “photo-gray” or equivalent light-sensitive material so they can double as emergency sunglasses. If you wear glasses we recommend prescription glacier glasses (gray or amber). Talk to your eye care professional to find out where prescription glacier glasses are available. Regular sunglasses are not dark enough and do not provide any side protection from the sun.
