trip introduction

Jiri via Everest base camp trek is an adventure trekking route out of the tourists’ trail. On this trek, you discover the genuine Everest region and getting more popular than Kathmandu valley and the Annapurna Region. Everest region is a magnet for mountaineers and trekkers because of the mountains’ landscapes.  rhododendrons bloom in the spring, and majestic Himalayan peaks include breathtaking views of glaciers and the many peaks such as Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Cho-Oyu, Everest, Nuptse, and Makalu.

Best Time to Visit

AUTUMN
During October and November, the sky is normally a deep blue, the sun often bright, and the view of the mountains mostly crystalline, the temperature during the day is rather pleasant. It is an excellent time for tourism and trekking, although temperatures can be cold, especially at night in the Everest region.

WINTER
Heavy snowfall sometimes makes several high-altitude passes impassable. Trekking is still possible, but at altitudes below 4000m because of the cold. The weather is very clear and the visibility of the mountains is excellent.

SPRING
From March to May, the days are sunny and the temperatures increasingly mild. The view of the mountains gets worse and worse as the monsoon approaches, but it is also the flowering period of the rhododendrons, absolutely magnificent, especially in the Annapurna region.

SUMMER
In June and July, the humid air masses of the Bay of Bengal collide with the Himalayan range. As they rise, they cool and condense to fall in the form of rain: it is the monsoon. Its effects are very uneven across the country. It gradually loses its intensity as it moves from the southeast to the northwest. Some regions are therefore less affected by the monsoon: the north of the Annapurna area (Manang, Naar, Phu), Dolpo, and Mustang. where else, the paths are sometimes slippery and often infested with leeches …

Accomodation & meal

ACCOMMODATION

In a standard category hotel (base: double room) in Kathmandu and Pokhara, during the rest of the trip in a tent (3-person tents for 2 people) or in a lodge depending on the trip. The lodges in Nepal are very comfortable random. In general, conditions are quite good around the Annapurnas and the Everest region. On the other hand, in Mustang, in the Manaslu,  Tsum valley, and in the region of Kangchanjung or Makalu, they can be very rudimentary to the point of being a dormitory sometimes even a kitchen. lodges can look like a refuge or sometimes a bed and breakfast from home. Most of the time it is a family house with double, triple, or dormitory rooms. Toilets and showers are always separate. It is essential to check that the water is not heated with wood, as this contributes to deforestation. Most of the time, the water is heated with solar energy

MEAL

In the cities, many restaurants allow us to discover the typical local cuisine. Meat is scarce in the high mountain, the Nepalese are generally vegetarians. The basic ingredients are rice, pasta, lentils, potatoes, vegetables. Snacks are included during the trek (cereal bars, dried fruits, etc.).

For camping trek accommodation: during the trek, breakfasts and evening meals are prepared by the kitchen team. They are taken under the mess tent. Depending on the profile of the stages (length of the day’s walk and/or presence of water), midday snacks will be served hot or cold in the form of picnics.

For tea house trek accommodation: meals are prepared by the cooks of the lodge and are taken in the dining room. Here is a typical one-day menu:

  • breakfast: eggs, toast or chapati, or Tibetan bread or pancakes, or pancakes, butter/jam, tea or coffee
  • lunch: the main course, tea or coffee.
  • dinner: soup, main course, fruit (fresh or canned), tea or coffee

NB: Hindus and Buddhists are most often vegetarians. We, therefore, eat very little meat or fish. The dishes are pasta, rice, potatoes, lentils, etc.

DRINKS: during the trek, tea is served with meals (two cups of tea per meal). Additional cups of tea and other beverages, including mineral water, are the responsibility of the participants. You can fill your gourds with water in the lodges, but it is essential to treat them with purifying tablets. Avoid buying plastic bottles.
