All Himalayan areas lead to tough walks due to much climb uphill and downhill, but it is not difficult, depending on the itinerary set by Hiker Himalaya. Where walking hours are average of 5 to 6 hours the most, except for few days that is walking to Everest base camp. Might be hard due to altitude gain, but the walk is pleasant, the other day climbs to Kalapathar Hilltop in the morning leads to a steep climb of two hours or more. But once you take short rest to catch your breath it will be all right and worth the views from the top of Kalapathar.
Hiker Himalaya will provide an expert guide who knows the area very well, as well as strong porters to carry client’s heavier baggage. The guide will be with you through the trek from Lukla to Lukla or from the beginning to the end in Kathmandu.
Not in all places, only at places that we have designated as per the itinerary days, but from Pangboche village onwards. The lodge and guest-house are of simple tourist standard but warm rooms with large dining hall, where toilets and baths will be common due to harsh cold terrain and rough landscapes. Although Luxury Lodge does not exist from Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep which is the last settlement before Everest base camp. All these places provide nice cozy rooms, serving excellent foods as per the choice from a long list of menus.
Depending upon the seriousness of symptoms due to high altitude or AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). In this case, the client needs to be brought down to a safe altitude, where the victims will recover and then continue as far he/she can cope. But in a critical situation, an emergency evacuation is required taking a helicopter service, which is the quickest way to reach the hospital back in Kathmandu. Where all extra expenses should bear by the client and can be reimbursed from their travel / medical insurance.
The most preferable time is in spring from March to May, and the autumn season starts from September till November. Springtime is lovely with longer sun-light hours as well for clear views and walks. Cold in the late afternoon, nights, and morning, can expect snow-fall sometimes above 3, 000 m high. Autumn is another best time for the trek, most days are clear and fine for views and treks. But the days are shorter due sun-light hours can be very cold in the morning and night time, with chances of snow-fall sometimes.
