Essential Information

Accessing this Everest Mini Trek

A flight to Lukla or a trek in from Salleri, we have multiple options to access this Everest Mini Trek. The accessibility of the scenic hub – headquarters of the Solukhumbu Region depends upon the quality of the roads. However, they can be accessed by flights too. Adding an extra four days to the trip, this would act as a prelude to the major climb ahead.

 

Best time to go to Everest Mini Trek

Although Everest Mini Trek is done all year round, March to May and September to November are considered the best seasons for the expedition due to the warm climate and favorable weather.

However, in the past, every expedition and every season has provided a unique experience. Winters can be promising as we see the areas covered by a thin layer of snow and there are much fewer expeditions sharing the trail.

 

Altitude Acclimatization

Trailing up then the height of 2500 m can increase the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Altitude Acclimatization is the key to avoid acute mountain sickness. Make a slow climb to help your body acclimatize. Drink plenty of liquid-like garlic soup that helps the body with the process. There are drugs like acetazolamide (also called Diamox) that help the body maintain the amount of oxygen. However, our trips itineraries are designed, keeping in mind the time for acclimatization for a human body.

 

Trip Safety

Your safety is always our priority. Our trips are well planned to take every precaution in mind. The team will be well equipped with cell phones, emergency satellite phones, extensive medical kits, and other necessary apparatus. You will always be in connection with our Kathmandu office. Our team makes sure you are safe throughout the trip. Pre-trip administration such as compulsory medical questionnaires and travel insurance is all done keeping your safety in mind.

 

 Fitness Level

Everest Mini Trek requires a reasonable level of fitness maintained. One must be used for some exercise. However, your gears and sleeping bags will be carried by porters and animals. So your daily pack will be light, and just the altitude trail can seem a significant issue. We walk daily, and with days, you must feel fit and healthy and push your limits. We expect our fellow participants to get used to exercise and train hard before the Everest Mini Trek. However, we design our treks equal to every gender or age. We believe that trekking is not a race and a collective trail. So there is equal participation of all the trekkers.

 

Travel Insurance

Before commencing any of the Peregrine Treks, we make sure our participants have enough insurance covering any misfortunes that may occur during the trip. You are welcome to source your insurance and provide of this proof 15 days before the trip.

 

Purchasing and Local Producers

We try to use local products as much as possible to avoid transportation from around the world. This way, we conserve our eco-system and also support the local economy at the same time.

Note:

It is recommended that you buy yourself some extra days. Arrive in Kathmandu a day before the departure date. You can use the extra day for purchasing equipment, gears and also have some rest before the grand trail. Buying you some spare time after the trek will cover-up in case the flight from Lukla to Kathmandu gets delayed or canceled due to unfavorable weather. So the extra days will help you not to miss your International flight.

During our trip, there may be various political, climatic, and multiple other factors are beyond our control and have a chance of altering our itineraries although the alteration may not happen significantly, if any adjustment necessary, the leader will decide the best alternative taking into consideration the group’s interests. If any change is made, we make sure that it has the least effects in our itineraries and plans. However, we cannot be responsible for the result of delays in such cases.

 

Flight Delays in Kathmandu and Lukla

Lukla Airport is situated in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. Therefore, a flight taking off and landings are considered difficult sometimes. Plus, the weather is very unpredictable and can be changing every few hours resulting in flight delays and cancellations.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the main transportations from the airstrip at Lukla. Their service is very much reliable. However, if any delays or cancellations occur due to the weather conditions, we will help you incorporate a helicopter which can carry 4-6 persons at a time. This can cost an extra of US $500 to $3000 per person depending upon the number of passengers. The participant must pay the cost at the time of service. Later, it can be submitted for reimbursement through a travel insurance company. US dollars cash or credit cards (Master Cards, Visa Cards, and American Express) are accepted for the helicopter service. All payments require 4% bank fee, which goes directly to the bank.

The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500 or greater. Twin Otter and Dornier fly if the visibility is 5000 or greater as per Nepal Civil Aviation rules. If the weather is extreme and visibility is under 1500, the helicopters are not operated. In such cases, we will schedule the flights to the nearest date available. If the weather gets worst day by day, we will be providing you with alternative trek options.
