It is an exhilarating adventure that lets you summit many pristine snowy peaks which is not only limited to checking itineraries and increasing your physique. The mountain climbing equipment list is determined by the length of the climb the remoteness of the location and the weather. Some of the essential climbing equipment is like this:

  • Harness
  • Tape slings
  • Helmet

ACCOMMODATION LODGE & 2 DAYS CAMPING BASE CAMP AND HIGH CAMP

Nepal is the Himalayan land and the facilities are not available easily. Most of the trekking route of Nepal is located in the Himalayan part of Nepal. For accommodation, we have to stay in the Tea-house or lodges. Tea-house is also called the Bhatti in Nepali. In every tea-house, you will get a room with two small beds with a bedsheet, blanket, and mattress. While doing peak climbing, you do not expect highly luxurious lodges as lodging options are limited and have the availability of basic level service. In Himalayan peak climbing, you must have to share a washroom with other people.

The entire tea house has a large dining room where they will provide you and your group in the local lodge available each day. The accommodation is very basic with limited options while you are trekking in Nepal. While doing peak climbing or trekking in Nepal, you must book the hotel in the advance in the Himalayan land. It is just because the trails are the busiest and you must book the room in advance. In this peak climbing, you will spend two days camping. We will stay in the high camp and base campsite in the camping.

ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS

Altitude sickness is the basic sickness while trekking at a high altitude. It is hard to say whether you have altitude sickness or not. This is just because everyone’s body reacts to the altitude differently. The possibility of altitude sickness while traveling at the height of 2500m from the sea level. So it is necessary to know you have to walk at least 300 to 400 meters in a day. This is very important that you are aware of the altitude acclimatization required by the human body in mountain conditions. It not only attracts physically unhealthy people but also healthy suffer from altitude sickness.

Altitude sickness is the major issue that travelers have to overcome during the high-altitude journey in high Himalayan land.

And we must drink lots of boiled water, garlic soup and ginger tea which is the best remedy to prevent this sickness. Some of the symptoms of altitude sickness are headache, vomiting, loss of appetite, dizziness, difficulty to breathing, and tiredness. If you feel any symptoms from this you inform your guide or porter who will help you.

WEATHER FORECAST & FLIGHT TO LUKLA

While trekking in the Himalayan part of Nepal we will never know when climate and weather will change suddenly. The weather generally remains pleasant and offers ideal conditions for climbing. If you choose the best season for this peak climbing then it offers excellent weather and mesmerizing mountain views. On this route, while climbing there will be sunlight in the daytime but in the nighttime, it may get windy and foggy.

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Rabin Gurung

It was a trip we will always remember and be proud of. You need not worry about anything since Dhan (Sameer Gurung) and their group will arrange everything (i.e. Hotel, Food, transportation, a plane ticket to Lukla, etc.). The trekking was long and arduous yet our guide was very accommodating and conscious of us. He knows the place very well and will gladly tell you stories about it along the way. The whole trek was truly breathtaking. You won’t regret this trip! (Note: Try to reach viewing deck areas before sunrise and watch as the sun makes everything look spectacular!☺)

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Dhansingh Gurung

Dhansingh guided me on compressed Annapurna Circuit trek late last year and the experience far exceeded my expectations. Having someone who knew the route, language, local culture, weather conditions and wildlife intimately enabled me to relax and get the most from my trip. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt extremely well looked after and safe from the moment I arrived in Nepal right up until I left. I couldn’t recommend more highly, very professional service.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Dhansingh

We had a wonderful time on our trek. We did the 8 day ABC trek. The route is beautiful with lots of stunning vistas. Our guide Dhansingh was knowledgable and friendly and really looked after us. I would be happy to recommend this tour to anyone thinking of tackling ABC.

Everest Gokyo & Renjola Pass with Dhansigh

I first met Dhansingh in May of 2016 when we completed the Renjo La pass. I’ve now returned this summer of ’17 to explore with Dhansingh some areas of Annapurna. Dhansingh’s competency is the first rate, and he a very pleasant person with whom to spend time. I highly recommend Everest Trekking Routes.
