Everest Paronoma Trek

Duration: 16 Days
  • Destination: Nepal

This four week trek in Nepal is the grand tour of the world renowned Solukhumbu (Mt. Everest) region of Nepal. During this trek, you will pass through some of the most beautiful areas of the Khumbu, including the Thame Valley, Gokyo Valley and Khumbu Valley – home of Mt. Everest. The route of the Solukhumbu Trek is pristine and somewhat isolated, giving you the unique opportunity to enjoy the serenity and natural wonder of Nepal in a way few trekkers can. From lively Sherpa villages to silent sacred monasteries, the Solukhumbu Trek allows you to experience the true diversity of the Solukhumbu Region.
Crossing two mountain passes, climbing two large peaks, and reaching Mt. Everest Base Camp, the Solukhumbu trek is physically demanding yet undoubtedly rewarding. The passes, Renjo Pass (17,515 ft) and Cho La Pass (17,782 ft) give trekkers the rare opportunity to visit both the Gokyo and Everest areas of the Khumbu region in a single trek. The peaks, Gokyo Ri (17,520 ft) and Kala Pattar (18,448 ft) offer some of the most stunning views of the Himalayas available on all of planet earth. Views of peaks such as Cho-Oyu, Lhotse and Mt. Everest are unsurpassed in beauty from the summits of Gokyo-Ri and Kala Pattar.
With the combined guiding knowledge of Dawa Sherpa, Pasang Sherpa and a well trained staff, your visit to the Nepal is assured to be well organized, safe, and hassle-free! High altitude pack animals, yaks, will be used to transport equipment, easing your burden of having to carry a cumbersome backpack. We will be staying in the best tea houses and lodges in the region, and enjoying warm hearty meals served by our hosts three times daily.
The Solukhumbu Trek begins from Phaplu, a short flight away from Katmandu. From the densely populated middle hills to the sparse high altitude wilderness, this trek is one heck of a lot of fun! The Solukhumbu Trek is the ultimate Himalayan trekking experience with an added lower-altitude trekking bonus – at these lower altitudes, we will see a more diverse collection of flora and fauna, as well as a large number of farms dotted along the hillsides. The portion of the trek from Phaplu to Chuplung (where the route from Lukla connects) is a less traveled route, and we will often have the trail all to ourselves! This option is also beneficial to our stamina- which we will need for the rest of the trek!
Join us for this journey through the Sherpa villages, the high mountain valleys, snow covered passes and magical views of the world’s highest mountains in the high Himalayan region of North Eastern Nepal! Space is limited- sign-up while you still can!

Itinerary

Day 1: Fly out to Lukhla early in the morning. Trek to Phakding

Day 2: Trek to Namche Bazar

Day 3: Rest / acclimatisation day in and around Namche. If You have enough time you can visit Twin villages namely Khumjung and Khunde. which help to add more interest to your trip. Possibly overnight in Khumjung, a very different experience from the 'flesh pots' of Namche, and shortens Day 4 to very manageable proportions

Day 4: Trek to Dole

Day 5: Trek to Macchermo

Day 6: Rest / acclimatisation day around Macchermo: there’s a pleasant stroll on the ridge above the village, and from the prayer flags on the ridge you get a good view of Everest

Day 7: Trek to Gokyo. Stroll further up the valley if you have time / inclination

Day 8: Ascend Gokyo Ri

Day 9 to 11: Cross the Cho La to Lobuche and Gorak Shep

(or trek back down the east side of the valley to Phortse if Cho La is impassable or you fancy level-ish trekking rather than another ascent. In which case Day 10 would take you to Pangboche or Shomare, Day 11 to Dughla or Dingpoche, Day 12 to Lobuche, Day 13 to Gorak Shep, and you’d be two days behind for the rest of the itinerary)

Day 12: Either trek to Everest base Camp, or ascend Kala Pattar: Stay at Gorak Shep overnight if you intend to do both, then on Day 13 do the other one, and then descend to Lobuche – if you’re doing both it’s probably better to do Base Camp on day 12, Kala Pattar on 13 as it’s a shorter trip, and leaves ample time to get down to Lobuche

Day 13 or 15: Trek via Pheriche to Pangboche

Day 14 or 16: Trek towards Namche (either to Namche or to Kyanjuma, 1 hour short of Namche, or to Kyanjuma then 30 minutes up to Khumjung)

Day 15 or 17: Trek via Namche to Monjo, Ghat, or Phakding (depending on how well you are going !)

Day 16 or 18: Trek to Lukla..............

Useful Info

Everest is mostly resided by Sherpas. They follow Buddhists and Tibetan Buddhists culture. We will get to witness ancient Tibetan Buddhist shrines, chortens, centuries-old monasteries, prayer walls, and kaanis. We will interact with locals and also experience their unique lifestyle, tradition, and culture.

Accommodations

We will be staying in 2 or 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the Everest Paronoma Trek, we will stay in a teahouse or in camp. Teahouse is basically a combination of hotel and lodge. The room will be small with little furniture, bed & blanket. All the accommodations are on a twin-sharing basis. On special request, single rooms can be arranged in the cities. However, single rooms might not be available all the time due to the limited service on higher elevations. Please understand that the services in the teahouse will be very basic and also all the teahouse does not come with attached washrooms.

Meals & Drinking Water

In Everest Paronoma Trek, we will enjoy authentic Nepalese food with few other cuisines like Tibetan, Indian. Meals will be served as per the menu of the teahouse. If we will stay in the camp then, we all the meals will be cooked by the porters. Beside that you can find bars, bread, cookies, butter tea, extra on the trail but, remember as the elevation get higher, the cost also gets high. In Kathmandu, you will only get breakfast. There will also be welcome and farewell dinner for you.

Drinking water can be easily found everywhere. You can get hot water from the teahouse and fill in your bottle everytime it gets empty. So, do carry a reusable water bottle with yourself. We request you to not buy mineral water bottle on the way as it will help in preserving the region. Moreover, you can also carry water purifier tablets or SteriPen with yourself to purify the water.

Everest Paronoma Trek Difficulty & Physical Fitness

Everest Paronoma Trek is a moderate trek. The trails are difficult and challenging in terms of technical climbing and also includes 5-7 hours of walk each day. Therefore you need to be passionate and in good health. Trekking to the higher altitude always demands average physical fitness, positive attitude, and a strong determination. If you have any previous hiking or trekking experience it would be great.

Other than that, if you have any kind of health related issues then do consult with your doctors before booking the trip. In case of any medical history, we highly recommend you to inform us so that any future event can be tackled without having any issue.
