Jiri to EBC and Kalapatthar Trek Difficulty
Jiri to EBC and Kalapatthar Trek is a trek to the Everest region via the route that passes by the Jiri. This route is considered the most purest and authentic trekking route in the region. Most probably, the pioneer of the Everest Expedition might have taken the same route.
The trek does not involve any technical climbing nor does it require any previous experience of climbing, meaning it is achievable for all. That being said, the Jiri variation is significantly longer than the classic Everest Base Camp Trek. Making it slightly more challenging. Expect to trek 15km per day over the course of 5/6 hours. This is a number that can be achieved with a little bit of prior training and practice hikes.
Everest Base Camp is the most popular classic trekking destinations in the Everest region. EBC with Kalapatthar make a perfect combination. However, travelling across the world’s tallest mountain is a not easy task. The unstable weather, snowy slopes, high altitude, and cold are some of the major factors of Everest Region trekking. With a physically fit body and firm determination, anybody can do this. But remember that, preparation is a must to do activity before this trek.

Best Season for Jiri to EBC and Kalapatthar Trek
Famous writer Mark Twain once said, “Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” Climate affects significantly on any Trekking and Hiking. Here, we are going to discuss about the trekking and hiking time in Nepal. Just have a look.
Hiking in Nepal can be done throughout the year. Autumn and spring are the best seasons to go on trekking in Nepal. Every season has something distinct.
Autumn season lasts for September to November in Nepal. This season is the loveliest season in Nepal. The temperature is warm even at the Mountains. The days will be clear which affords the best mountain views.
Spring Season lasts for March to May. During Spring Season Nepal experiences moderate climate. The hills will be veiled with the blossoms of Rhododendron, orchid etc.
Winter season (December to January) is little colder at the Himalayas. The precipitation will be at the form of snowfall. The days are still warmer with plenty of sunshine. The rainfall is occasional. If you like to travel in peaceful trails and extreme cold weather is not a problem for you, you can choose winter season. Hoverer, this season is considered an off-season for trekking and Hiking in Nepal.
Summer Season (June to August) in Nepal is also an off-season for trekking. Nepal experiences summer rainfall. During this season, the trails will be muddy and slippery, frequent rainfall, flood and landslides will ruin your journey irritably. However, the rain shadow region like Manang, Mustang and Dolpo offer you the best trekking moment even in this season.

Preparation for Jiri to EBC and Kalapatthar Trek
Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” If you believe you can accomplish everything by “cramming” at the eleventh hour, by all means, don’t lift a finger now. But you may think twice about beginning to build your ark once it has already started raining. Hiking and Happiness go hand in hand or foot in boot. For the same you need to prepare a lot as the above statements say. Trekking and Hiking require a good level of physical fitness. Not only good physique helps you out, but also a mental strength is vital. If you have undertaken some smaller hikes earlier, trekking will be much easier for you. You need to be familiar with trekking and climbing gears. Besides that you need to be aware of basic climbing and mountaineering skills depending upon the difficulty level. Cardio, yoga, jogging, running, swimming, etc. helps you to build up your physics. Stress Endurance Practice helps you to build up your mental capacity. Similarly, have plenty of hygienic foods including protein, carbohydrates and minerals. Here are some tips for preparing for any trekking/Climbing or Hiking in Nepal:

  •  Go for a run or hike to hills where you have to do ascents and descents.
  •  Once a week, do a long walk.
  •  Swim and cycle.
  •  You can also go up and down the stairs of a tall building.
  •  Eat healthy food.
  •  Keep on doing yoga. If you can, do more yoga related to breathing.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude Sickness is also known as Acute Mountain Sickness. It is a medical condition when our body could not adjust to the environment due to the low level of oxygen in the air. At high altitude, the level of the oxygen in the air is thin due to which our body can not adjust easily to the environment. Normally, it is more common above 2500 meter above the sea level.
Common Symptoms: Headache, Nausea, Dizziness, Vomiting, Fatigue, Loss of Appetite, Trouble Sleeping etc.

Types of Altitude Sickness:

  •  Acute Mountain Sickness: It is very common at high altitude and can cause vomiting, dizziness, nausea etc. overall, it is the mildest form of altitude sickness.
  •  High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): It is a very dangerous and life threatening conditions because fluid is built up in the lungs.
  •  High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): It is the most severe stage of Altitude Sickness because fluid is built up in the brain. It is life threatening one. The victim will be unable to walk, breathe and ultimately in Coma.

Treatment:
If you realize any other symptoms associated with Altitude Sickness other than Headache, just change your elevation. If the symptoms are severe, you need immediate medical attention. You need to consult with a physician. The best treatment of Altitude Sickness is to climb down as low as possible. If you are at a very high altitude, just climb below 4000m. If you have High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), you might need a steroid called dexamethasone. If you have High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), you will need supplemental oxygen and other medications.

Prevention:
The best way to prevent Altitude Sickness is to have a lot of Acclimatization. That simply means climb high and sleep low. Here are some of the basic guidelines for preventing Altitude Sickness.

  •  Do not climb hurriedly. Keep your pace steady.
  •  Do have a lot of acclimatization.
  •  Do not drink alcohol or do not smoke.
  •  Drink plenty of fresh water.
  •  Eat plenty of hygienic foods.
  •  Use Diamox Pills 24 hrs prior to the climb.

Trekking Gears for Jiri to EBC and Kalapatthar Trek
For the safe, secure, and successful trekking experience, we need some gears and instruments. We also may require some technical trekking instruments depending upon the difficulty grade. Here we are going to discuss briefly about trekking gears and instruments for Nepal.

Accommodations and Meals
We provide luxury accommodations in all the major cities of Nepal and all courses of meals including Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner throughout the trip. There will be varieties of western and Asian dishes or mixture of both in all the major cities of Nepal. Chinese, Indian, Thai, Continental dishes are common almost everywhere in the town. Annapurna and Everest Region is much developed than any other trekking destinations in Nepal. Therefore, you don’t have problem of finding a good teahouse which provides you the best course of meals. Most tea houses cook delicious dishes. Most tea-houses offers pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, dhal bhat, bread, soups, fresh vegetables and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. Finding a teahouse at the remote region is difficult during the peak season. In such cases, we offer you a camping. At such moment, we will provide you limited choices of dishes.

Is Nepal Safe for Trekking?
No doubt, Nepal is safe. In fact, it is safer than any other countries of the world. Nepal is a country full of diversities. Nepali people are hospitable, kind, and cultured. Nepali people are also religious and spiritual by nature. Therefore, they understand the language of love and kindness better than other. For them, service to human is service to the God.
