Try New Things

  • Accommodation will take place in a 4-star hotel in Kathmandu and teahouses while on the trail. All of the rooms are on a twin-sharing basis while a single supplement will be served on request and charged additionally. Similarly, the rooms will include attached bathrooms, however, please take into consideration that some teahouses will only have shared washing and toilet facilities and that single rooms aren’t readily available as we trek higher.

 

  • During our trek, we can enjoy the staple Nepali diet of daal-bhat-tarkari as well the common international cuisine like Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc. Breakfast and dinner will be served from the teahouse or lodge menu we’d spend the night at whereas lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners for guests.

 

  • This trek is suitable for walkers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day, taking place in cross steep, hilly terrain and cross Chola pass. There have been some changes in the icy landscape of the Cho La making the pass more difficult and challenging compared to previous years. Therefore, previous trekking experience, physical fitness and a positive attitude are essential. It is highly beneficial if we exercise and jog regularly to enhance our strength, stamina and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, blood diseases, and allergies should inform Pinnacle Expedition before booking the trek. We also recommend that you consult your doctor(s) before the trip.
