Useful Info

Best Season for Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise

The Clockwise Everest High Passes Trek is best done in the spring (March to May) and fall (mid-September to November). These times of year are ideal for trekking and taking in unhindered mountain views since the weather is dry and clear. While the evenings are cold, the days are warm. However, because it is high season, the trails get busy and crowded. In the spring, rhododendron blossoms are especially abundant on the hillsides. Everest Base Camp has been transformed into a tent city packed with climbers and Sherpa guides because it is also climbing season. In the fall, trekking to Everest High Passes clockwise is quite popular. The end of the rainy monsoon season, which clears the sky of pollutants and dust, may allow you to experience views in crystal clarity during this time of year.

Food or Meals available on Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise

You may choose from a wide variety of foods on the tea house menus prepared and served by the locals while clockwise trekking in the Everest High Passes.

  • Breakfast options include cereal, pancakes, and porridge with milk, muesli, Tibetan Breads, Chapati with Cheese, oatmeal, and a selection of hot beverages. French toast with jam, honey, and peanut butter is also offered.
  • Lunch will feature a selection of sandwiches, pizza, spring rolls, burgers, pizza, thukpa (noodle soup), dal bhat, momos (dumplings), Tibetan bread and chapatti, macaroni, spaghetti, sherpa stew, a number of soups, steaks, potatoes, yak steak, and desserts.

Accommodations available on Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise

On the mountain, lodging is provided in tea houses. The rooms often include just two or three single beds, as well as soft, warm blankets, cushions, comfortable mattresses, as well as nearby restrooms (though not always), and stunning views. However, throughout the walk, a solitary private room will be provided at no additional cost to female trekkers traveling alone. We will make sure you get the greatest accommodations available with breathtaking mountain and landscape views during the entire journey of Everest High Passes Clockwise Trekking.

Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise Difficulty Level

If you have never hiked before, especially in the Himalayas, the clockwise Everest High Passes trip may be challenging for you because you will be taking on a lot of risks and traveling on risky routes. On this trip, you must trek for at least 5 to 6 hours each day. There are multiple ups and downs on the difficult, steep terrain. For this journey, you must be in great physical and mental condition. Any trekking excursion to Nepal comes with a substantial risk of altitude sickness. Because the routes pass through areas with elevations of more than 4000 meters, trekkers are more likely to encounter altitude sickness. The Everest Clockwise High Passes trails will take you through challenging, impassable, mountainous, and harsh terrain. You must get beyond these challenges if you want to develop your abdominal muscles. The hikers will encounter a range of challenges along the trip, including steep cliffs, rocky terrain, meadows, deep valleys, and rough roads. Most hikers won't be able to complete these lengthy hikes. Going such a far distance for someone who has never hiked in these conditions may be too much.

Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise Travel Insurance

It is strongly advised that before starting Everest High Passes Trekking Clockwise, you must purchase travel insurance that includes medical evacuation and travel protection. Medical evacuation insurance is essential while traveling at high altitudes in a remote area of the world where there are no other accessible modes of transportation in case of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) or other causes at high elevations. In order to protect your travel investment from unforeseeable occurrences that could happen before, during, or after your trip, travel insurance is also strongly advised. It's a good idea to fully investigate the insurance and its coverages before making a decision. When traveling, carry your insurance documentation with you and give a copy to your family. You must verify that your insurance offers appropriate protection and that it protects the actions involved.

Altitude Sickness and Remedies on Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise

Altitude sickness is one of the concerns associated with hiking in the Everest Region, the highest trekking destination on earth. The air gets thinner as you ascend, making breathing challenging. Acute Mountain Sickness, or AMS, might occur if you try to move swiftly to reach your destination in less time. In moderate situations, Diamox and a restful night's sleep may be adequate. Aside from drinking enough water, keeping your body hydrated can help you stay nausea-free. To prevent the situation from getting worse, the necessary actions must be taken. You might need to shorten yourself and get medical attention if the symptoms get worse. Acclimatization is necessary before attempting a high-altitude trip like the Everest High Passes Clockwise Trek. Your body will be able to adjust to the thin air if you rest at a lower elevation before climbing to a higher elevation.

Here's a general packing list of everything you should remember to carry on your Everest Clockwise High Passes Trekking:

    Wonderful Experience During The Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise

    With Green Valley Nepal Trek I got a wonderful experience during the Everest high passes trek clockwise. Our guide and the company's owner, Arjun, were both incredibly kind and friendly. Before and after the hike, they made sure we had a comfortable stay in Kathmandu, and they promptly complied with our request to move our hotel reservation to a site closer to Thamel. Throughout the entire Everest high passes trek clockwise, our guide kept an eye on us to ensure that we were well and to brief us on the preparations for the following day. We asked him to return to Lukla as quickly as possible, but he skipped two rest days from our schedule without exhausting us physically.

FAQs
  • No prior trekking experience is necessary, however, you should be in reasonable physical shape, love walking, and be able to acclimatize to high-altitude circumstances. We firmly advise you to start preparing for the trip at least three months before the departure date by engaging in regular exercise, whether it be walking, running, or going to the gym. You will find hiking to be a more delightful experience if you are more physically fit. Our entire schedule was created with consideration for every detail and included enough time for acclimatization.

  • On the trails, bottled water is widely and cheaply accessible, however, certain trek areas do not allow plastic bottles. Therefore, we advise you to take a water bottle that you may fill with boiling or filtered water. Additionally, we urge you to use water purification pills or drops, which you may either bring from your home country or purchase in Kathmandu.

  • Yes, there are Wi-Fi hotspots on the path. But please be aware that the network may be unpredictable because of the steep terrain. The signal frequently disappears or has low power.

  • Yes, you can eat vegetarian cuisine with no issues as most lodges provide vegetarian dishes. To prevent food poisoning, we constantly advise our clients to consume vegetarian meals. Eating large, meat-based meals at a high altitude is not very healthy.

  • If someone gets sick on the route, your trekking guide will consider the situation and determine whether the sick individual should continue the trip or descend to a lower level and wait for the remainder of the group. If the person's condition is critical, he or she will be transferred to Kathmandu for specialist medical care via air ambulance. The sick individual will be looked after by an assistant, while the rest of the party will continue on their journey according to the schedule.

  • We advise you to limit the weight of your trek luggage to no more than 15 kilograms. A maximum of 30 kilograms can be carried by each porter. We assign 1 porter to transport 2 duffel bags for clients. Please be aware that for the flight to Lukla, you are only permitted 15 kg of luggage, including your handbag. You will be charged extra for overage luggage.

  • To account for erratic weather, we advise you to add an extra 2 to 3 days to your hike. Flights from Lukla to Kathmandu and vice versa are canceled during bad weather. When this occurs, the flight is immediately changed to the next day. If you need to make sure you are on time for the journey or your flight back home but are on a very strict schedule, you can hire a helicopter. You will be responsible for paying for the helicopter charges.

  • The Everest High Passes Treks are generally more difficult than the standard Everest Base Camp Treks. But when you travel with Green Valley Nepal Treks, you will be in the company of experts who can advise and help you with a variety of things, allowing you to take pleasure in your trip.

  • To make purchases on the route, you must have local cash. While there may some lodges in the Everest Region's Lukla and Namche that accept credit cards, we strongly advise bringing enough local currency with you to purchase any necessary products en route. You can exchange your money at any of the money exchange offices in Kathmandu, or you can receive local currency at the ATMs nearby by using your credit or debit card.

  • The teahouses throughout Everest High Passes Trek Clockwise have western-style restrooms. The rooms in upscale lodges and teahouses at lower elevations have hot showers and adjoining bathrooms. You might have to share a bathroom with other travelers if the facilities are more rudimentary at higher elevations. Please be aware that in extremely cold weather, the water in the toilet basin may freeze, forcing you to use an Asian-style restroom outside. Rolls of toilet paper should always be in your possession. While trekking, it's crucial to have a sufficient supply of toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
