About
We have two days in Kathmandu to experience one of Asia's most ticking cities before hopping a flight to Lukla, the starting point of our trek. We follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar and then trek into the Gokyo Valley. The trail ascends gradually and we enjoy a series of short trekking days, to ensure proper acclimatisation, walking beside the moraines of the Ngozumpa glacier and turquoise lakes to reach our lodge in Gokyo.

Requires a good level of fitness and experience of mountain climbing can beneficial. These tend to be longer treks and climb with some more difficult days, some of which may involve walking at increased altitudes and more difficult terrain. There may occasionally be a longer day when negotiating the more challenging sections such as a mountain pass or viewing peak. Altitude may range up to 5000 meters.
At 6.30 am your Sherpa knocks on your door with a cup of good morning tea. Then it's time to have breakfast, tight up your bag pack and head off for today's trekking hiking for the next three to four hours then stop for an hour at pleasant spot along the way for a well-prepared hot lunch. Afterward, walk another three hours or so, before you stop for the over night. The evening can be spent reading or chatting with your fellow climbing and trekking crew about the trip of the day. Pack of games can be an asset to these nights; your trekking & climbing crew love teaching various Nepali card games and learning new Western games. Eventually, it's time to bed for a well deserved night
Whilst in the mountain, accommodation options are limited so please do not expect the Ritz! Nepal Nomad use simple family run lodges, with a large sociable central dining area and a cozy chimney burning fire. Accommodations are on a twin share basis and we recommend you use your own sleeping bag. Lodges and tent in Island Peak climbing tend to have shared bathroom facilities and you may not always have access to a shower. Despite the lack of facilities, these lodges certainly have a rustic charm, most are blessed with spectacular views and being family run operations, they offer a great insight into the daily life of the Mountain people.
It is Nepal Nomad's booking terms & conditions of joining this type of tours with us that you must be fully insured with medical, emergency rescue evacuations including trip cancellation insurance which should cover over 3000m to 6000m.
Itinerary designed to ensure there is plenty of times for adequate occurs as a result of acclimatization and cases of mountain sickness are rare. The common Symptoms are headaches, nausea, irregular breathing, insomnia and the swelling of fingers and glands. Treatment is to descend to a lower altitude as quickly as possible which normally results in rapid improvement and recovery.
Three meals on full board basis will be provided (Nepali, Sherpa, and Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Chinese and Indian cousins). Each day dinner and breakfast will be taken in the same lodge you spend over night but Lunch will be taken on your way to next village.
Equipment List:
The following gives you a general idea of the trekking equipment and clothing needed for this trek. This is a porter-supported trek. Two clients share one porter. We will supply you a trek duffel bag where you keep your heavy items and this bag is carried by the porter. You will need to bring your own daypack to be carried by you. In the daypack, you can put money, important documents, water bottle/bladder, camera, toiletries, sunscreen, notebook, etc. The weight limit for Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flights is 15 kg or 33 pounds. This is combining both the duffel bag and the daypack. If you exceed this limit, you will have to pay an additional fee. When this happens, sometimes the airline sends your bag in later flights and this can be very problematic for many reasons. So, we recommend you to pack as carefully as you can and not exceed the weight limit. You can leave your non-trekking stuff at the locker facility in the Kathmandu hotel.

4-season sleeping bag (You can rent for $35 pp if you need it but has to be returned after the trek)

Excellent repeat experience
Dec 2018 • Family
This is my second trip with Nepal nomad and Sarba. I had done the EBC route alone 5 years back and did it again this time with my two teens.
As always, Sarba ( the owner) is extremely conscientious . He was worried about our kids and how they would handle the cold. We received clear and relevant tips on what to do and what not to. Right from the time we booked to the time we returned home, he was always available by all means of communication, took care of things in advance for us and generally looked after our comfort as best as he could given the weather.
Since we had booked a private tour, he customized it for us how we wanted it and was very flexible with the itinerary.
He is extremely customer friendly, really caring and it’s a pleasure to do a trip with him.
His rates are half of the western operators.

All my future Nepal trips would be with Nepal nomad.
Would really recommend this company to anyone thinking of going there.
