Unforeseen Skies: Embracing Delays in Kathmandu and Lukla


Since, the weather in the Everest region is unpredictable and is likely to change every few hours, the Lukla flight often gets delayed or even cancelled. 

Lukla Airport is situated on a wonderful valley surrounded by high mountains. Landing and taking off from Lukla is considered to be difficult and technical. Therefore, Lukla is considered as the most dangerous airstrips in the world.

 

Unlocking Your Journey: Affordable and Hassle-Free Alternatives for Flight Delays or Cancellations

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the primary mode of transport to and from the airstrip at Lukla.

This service is fairly dependable. However, if flight to and from Lukla are cancelled in case of bad weather conditions in Everest region, we can help you charter a helicopter upon your request to ensure you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connections.

The cost of helicopter  Charter from Kathmandu to Lukla is to be paid by the passengers themselves and can be reimbursed from their travel insurance later.

The helicopter charges USD 2,500 to USD 3,000 per helicopter. The helicopter can carry up to 4 to 6 passengers at a time and the cost can be shared among the passengers.

The company can help by providing necessary documents required to claim the amount from insurance company. 

Secure Your Sky-High Adventure: Smooth Payment Options for Helicopter Bookings

The payment for helicopter must be paid at time of service by participant. US dollars cash or credit cards (Visa Cards, Master Cards, and American Express) are accepted for helicopter transport. Any card payment requires a 4% bank fee, which goes directly to the bank.

Optimal Flying Conditions for Helicopters and Twin Otter/Dornier Planes: Soar to New Heights

The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500m or greater, while the twin otter and Dornier planes can fly if the visibility is 5000m or greater, as per Nepal’s Civil Aviation rules.

If the weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500m helicopters cannot be operated. In such case we will reschedule your flight for next day depending on the availability. If this situation keeps on getting repeated for many days then we will provide you with the alternative trek options.

 

As you stand at the Everest Base Camp, gazing upon the world's highest peak, you'll not only feel the thrill of accomplishment but also the warmth of knowing that your journey has made a difference.

Water is an essential part of your trek. You need to drink plenty of water during your.  Most of the diseases during your trek are caused by drinking impure water. However it is not that the water in the mountain region is impure. It is natural and clean the people there consume it direct from the tap. But, since you are not used to you may get directly affected and consuming water direct from the tap might ruin your trek. Here are the tips for consuming water during Everest Base Camp Trek.

1. Mineral Water/ Bottled water.
Mineral water or Bottled water is available at most of the tea houses. The bottled water costs normally 1 Dollar per liter. If you find it in any tea houses it is better to carry an extra bottle because it may not be available anywhere during the trek.

2. Boiled Water
Drinking boiled water is probably the best method while trekking in the mountains. It is highly effective treatment for killing the bacteria from the water. You can boil the water in the tea house and carry it along with you during the trek. The tea hoses charges normally one to two dollars to boil the water.

3. Purified Water.
You can bring your own water purification tablets like Aquatabs®, Chlorine tablets, Bhromine Tablets along with you. It helps to save your budget as well.

4. Filtered Water.
You can also use filtered water as well during your Everest Base Camp Trek.  This can be an alternate where boiling is not preferred and also there is not any availability of other purified water. The filters like hand pump are effective in removing protozoa, bacteria and chemicals/toxins from the water but may not be effective removing the viruses.

Training and Fitness for Trekking.
No prior training and experience is required to do Everest Base Camp Trek. But, if you have trekking experience anywhere in the world then it can be an added point to your trek to Everest Base Camp. If you can walk up to 6-7 hours a day in an unfamiliar terrain then you can easily trek to Everest Base Camp. It is better if you start taking energy boosting diets and doing some physical exercise a month before the trek. All you need to have is strong willingness and ability to overcome the challenges.

Staying Healthy
Staying healthy and fit is very important when you are trekking to one of the most strenuous trekking destinations. You need to be very careful about your health and health related problems. Here are the following tips you can use to stay healthy during Everest Base Camp Trek.

·         Eat proper and healthy diets.

·         Avoid eating meat and meat products more often.

·         Drink a lot of water.

·         Don’t drink water direct from the resources or without purifying.

·         Starting exercising a month prior to the trek.

·         Take your regular medicines with you.

Take Care of your Feet.
Taking care of your feet is a must when you are going on a trek. Not taking proper care of your feet can ruin your trek. To take care proper care of your feet the following tips might be helpful.

·         Buy good quality comfortable shoes.

·         Clip Your Toenails

·         Apply Powders/Creams/Tapes

·         Wear the Right Socks

·         Wash your feet regularly.

·         Soak your feet for at least 10- 20 minutes at the end of the day.

Getting a Good Night Rest
As it is said ‘Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy and wise’, getting a proper goodnight sleep is very important for everyone. During the trek since your body gets tired after walking all day long a proper sleep is a must. You need to sleep for at least 7-8 hours. A good night sleep helps your body to take rest and recollect the energies that you’ve lost during your trek. For a better sleep we recommend you to carry a sleeping bag with you. The sleeping bag will be provided by the company or you can carry your own if you have. Sleeping Bag is necessary especially when you are trekking to Everest Base Camp because since only basic accommodations are available the blankets might not be enough for you.

Acclimatization & Sickness.
Acclimatization is very important when you are trekking to an altitude of more than 3500m.  Proper acclimatization helps to reduce the chances of Altitude Sickness. The itinerary is designed with proper acclimatization that will help your body to adopt the lower oxygen content in the air. Once you reached an altitude of 5000m the oxygen content in the air is less than 50% than that of the sea level. One of the main causes of altitude sickness is staying too long at high altitude without proper acclimatization. If in case you suffer from altitude sickness, the guides will notice the symptoms and then drop you to the lower altitude immediately. You have to inform to your guide if you notice any discomfort or symptoms of AMS. Major altitude sickness might need emergency helicopter rescue so make sure your travel insurance covers all the risk including helicopter rescue.

Note: If you suffer from altitude sickness in the mountain and still want to continue the trek then you can directly call to the office or ask you guide to call to office and make arrangements. In such case you may have to stay at the mountains for some extra days so we suggest you to have at least three extra days than your trek schedule. We charge $70 for extra days in the mountains. Since, there are several groups trekking from the company it is possible for you to join another group during peak seasons. However, it might not be possible during off season and you may have to pay extra charge for the porters and guide.

To know about the symptoms of Altitude sickness the following content might be helpful.

Symptoms of High Altitude sickness
The symptoms of altitude sickness depend upon various factors. These are the primary symptoms of Altitude sickness that can be cured immediately with certain precautions.

·         lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting

·         pins and needles

·         shortness of breath upon exertion

·         feeling sleepy

·         general malaise

·         swelling of the hands, feet, and face

If the primary symptoms are left untreated it may result to a serious altitude sickness which may need emergency rescue. The following are the major symptoms of AMS.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
No prior training and experience is required to do Everest Base Camp Trek. But, if you have trekking experience anywhere in the world then it can be an added point to your trek to Everest Base Camp. If you can walk up to 6-7 hours a day in an unfamiliar terrain then you can easily trek to Everest Base Camp. It is better if you start taking energy boosting diets and doing some physical exercise a month before the trek. All you need to have is strong willingness and ability to overcome the challenges.

Travel Insurance and Evacuation in emergency
Travel insurance is compulsory for all our clients traveling with our company. The Nepalese Insurance company doesn’t have travel insurance for foreign people so we recommend you to bring the legal documents with you while coming to Nepal. Your travel insurance must cover the loss due to theft, injury, delay; inconveniences or any other and the company should not have any liabilities for your personal loss. Make sure your travel insurance also compensate emergencies helicopter evacuation in case of emergencies.

Solo Travelers.
The numbers of Solo travelers are increasing rapidly in recent few years in Nepal. Nepal, being a beautiful and peace loving country is also one of the safest countries for solo travelers. However, the cost for solo traveler might be expensive since single supplement is very difficult to find and are expensive as well in the mountain regions.

Is Solo Travelers Safe in Nepal?
Nepal is one of the safest countries to travel in the world. We see numbers of solo travelers around the streets of the city and trekking areas. Tourism related crimes in Nepal are very less and we Nepalese treat our guests as gods. Even though, it is safe but still you need to be careful while walking to the cities alone during the mid night and we recommend you to hire a guide while trekking.Can you trek in Nepal without a guide?
Nepal requires the use of guides and porters such as in some of the regions such as Inner Dolpo, Kanchenjunga and Upper Mustang due to the areas being restricted. However, places such as the Annapurna Conservation Area and Everest Base Camp do not require guides. But we highly recommend to at least having a guide with you. Since, hiring a guide is very cheap in Nepal and it is not safe to travel alone in the mountain region you need to hire a guide for your personal safety.

Required Permits for Trekking
The permit required for Everest Base Camp Trek like Sagarmatha National Park Permit, and TIMS card will be managed by the company itself. For this you will need to submit your passport sized photo (2 copies) and a photocopy of your passport in the office.

Culture and Custom of Sherpa people
It is highly recommended to our travelers to respect the local culture and custom of Sherpa people. The prayer rocks, walls and flags are meant to be kept to the right at all times. It is a custom to follow what the local people believe.  Also, ask before taking any photographs, many people do not want their photos taken. 

Internet and Communication during Everest Base Camp Trek.


For some trekking can be a short break from social medias and internet whereas for some internet and communication is a means to stay connected with near and dear ones during trekking. While travelling in the remotest areas you may not have facilities of telephone and internet. However, in recent days the Internet and Communication facilities during your trek to Everest Base Camp is improving rapidly. The region now has 3G and 4G coverage as well.

Satellite phone 
If you want to have the best networks throughout your trek to Everest Base Camp you can use satellite phone throughout the trial. You can rent the sat phones or bring your own.

Wi-Fi
Most of the tea houses and lodges now provide Wi-Fi service. You can get free Wi-Fi in Everest View hotel and some of the lodges. But most of the lodges take extra charge for Wi-Fi. They charge you normally $5 for unlimited Wi-Fi coverage. However, the speed of the internet may not be faster like that of the cities.

Mobile data 
Mobile Data can be the cheaper way to get in touch with your family and friends in the Everest Region. You can buy a local sim card from a private company in Nepal and activate your data. The cost od data pack varies per MB. A telecommunication company in Nepal, NCELL has launched 3G connectivity since 2010.  So you can have a better internet experience in the Everest Region through mobile data as well.

Is Female Solo Travelers safe in Nepal?


Nepal is generally considered safe for women travelers. Nepal might have a conservative society but the people are open to every kind of cultures which helps to stay true. There haven't been many serious crimes against tourists since few years. Yet, travelers are requested to have considerable care while travelling.

Incredible Everest base camp experience They had me at namaste! Very well organised trekking tour! Warm welcome at the airport from Company owner Kedar and his bro Sujan and my guide Lakpa to start with, Lakpa was simply the best guide of the himalaya’s, I couldn’t have achieved Everest base camp trek  without Lakpa! I can’t thank him enough for everything he did for me, Highly recommended and I can’t wait to go back to Nepal to see more mountains!
