Nepalese, Tibetan, the more common continental and Indian cuisines are common choices in the menu.

PHYSICAL CONDITION REQUIREMENT
Discovery Mountain Trek can offer advice and recommendations about health requirements but it is the individual responsibility of each trekker to acquire any necessary documents and medical care. The information on the technical sheet provided is indicative, it is your responsibility to check with the authorities concerned for the exact requirements for your chosen destination at the time of travel. If you do not obtain any necessary medical consultations or travel documents and are not allowed to enter a country, or suffer personal injury or death as a result, we have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. It is your responsibility to comply with the regulations and procedures of police, customs and health at all times throughout your trip.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to trek to the Everest Base Camp Trek is in spring (February to May) and autumn (September to November). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s  are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain only employs local Staff, who have knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region.

PORTER CARE
We are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. International Porters Progress Group.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS
The Everest Region is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do.  Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain, therefore, enforces a number of do’s and don’ts. Please talk to your trek leader to avoid environmental impacts.

 TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain’s  trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

ACCLIMATIZATION
This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.

Details

  Pumori is technically challenging mountain offering sections of wild exposure demanding climbers to have previous mountaineering experience and with excellent physical form. The ascent to the Pumori is rewarded with stunning photographic views of the snow-capped mountains, including Lhotse and Everest. The first successful summit of Mount Pumori was made in 1962 by Gerhard Lenser, a member of a Swiss-German expedition. And we set 3 camp above the base camp.

 Camp 1:  Approximately 3 hours of walking from base camp takes us to Camp 1 or Advanced Base Camp at 5700 m. From Camp 1, there is a 500m walk. With slopes of 40 to 65 degrees, The mountain has a lot of rock and climbing mixed with transverse, steep and exposed veins. There are also ice walls that can sometimes require fixed ropes.

 Camp 2: Camp 2 is located at 6200m on a narrow ridge. So there is no fear of avalanches. From Camp 2, there is an ice climb with 35-65 degrees for about 400 meters with ice walls and crevices. Take note of the avalanche danger of big sear dangling from the 6500m shoulder.

 Camp 3:  and summit: Camp 3 is at 6850m. Generally, it is windy around the camp. Also visible from the campsite is the Tibetan plateau. For the summit push, prepare the rope that may be needed to cross many crevices and ice walls. Of the two ranges – that of Nepal is easier than the Tibetan side. Summit of the mountain on its summit at 7145m

DAY 10 - 23 : BASE CAMP TO SUMMIT (7161M)

At least three camps must be placed after the base camp in order to reach the summit. The base camp is just above Gorekshep at an altitude of 5300m. After leaving base, the first camp will be set up at an altitude of 5,650 m, at the phase of Mt. Pumori. The second camp will be at the ridge after the phase, an altitude of 6,000m.

DAY 27 :NAMCHE – LUKLA (2840M) 7/8H TREK

The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk cautiously as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain.
