Nirekha Peak Climbing is another important mountain adventure located in the Everest Region of Nepal. This trek also includes all the important attributes of the Khumbu District of the Everest Region. This peak climbing takes you to the Base Camp of Nirekha Peak after crossing the Cho La Pass at 5368 m. It has not been long since Nirekha Peak (6,159 m) was opened for climbing. Therefore, it is less crowded and provides a truly unique mountain climbing experience for the climbers.  

Nirekha Peak Climbing is a newly discovered Himalayan Peak in Nepal. This peak has been listed in category-A among the trekking peaks of Nepal by the Nepal Mountaineering Association. Therefore, this peak is suitable for experienced climbers. One needs to have technical skills in mountain climbing for scaling the summit of this peak. The major part of the climb is in ice and snow. It also demands excellent physical condition. Without proper acclimatization, it is very difficult to undertake it. This peak climbing is quite technical. 

Nirekha Peak has two of the most popular routes. The first route starts from the Kanchung Base Camp whereas another route begins from Lake Base Camp. Most trekkers and climbers prefer to undertake this journey via the first route because it is shorter and easier. The glacier to the Cho La Pass on this route is easy with only a few harmless crevasses. 

From the summit of Nirekha Peak, the magnificent views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Tawache, Cholatse, Pumori, Changri and the other Himalayas can be marveled at. This climbing package also takes us to the Gokyo Ri alongside the Ngozumpa Glacier, which is the longest glacier in Nepal and we can even visit the beautiful Gokyo Lakes which are the world’s highest freshwater lakes. We also reach the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar which are two of the most popular sites in the Everest region. Kalapatthar is considered the best vantage point for the close views of Everest and the nearby Himalayas.

The Nirekha Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition begins from Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to the entire Everest region. After that, we will trek towards Phakding and Namche Bazaar respectively. We will spend an acclimatization day at Namche. Then, we will trek from Tengboche to Dingboche to Lobuche continuously. Similarly, we will continue to Gorakshep, and visit the Everest Base Camp. After that, we will visit Kalapatthar and trek toward Dzongla. On the eleventh day, we shall visit the Nirekha Peak Base Camp via Cho La Pass. We will have rest and mountain climbing practices there. We will climb the Nirekha Peak on the Next day and return back to the Base Camp. Then, we will visit Gokyo Lake from the Base Camp. Finally, we will trek to Machhermo from Gokyo.

Nirekha Peak Climbing Difficulty
Climbing the summit of Nirekha is challenging and difficult. But the climbers with a keen desire to the summit and good physical condition can easily undertake this. The peak needs a good level of peak climbing experience and preparations. Nirekha Peak climbing demands a high level of climbing experience at Gokyo Ri. Not only this, it has immense devotion to face the challenging and technical sections. The climb to the top of the summit is a technical job that needs the usage of ice screws, fixes ropes and ladders. Besides, trekking to the Gokyo Ri, Trek summit need crampons, ice axes, and other climbing equipment. Nirekha Peak has two routes to climb as one from Kanchung Base Camp and another from Lake base camp. The ascent from the Kanchung side is to be preferred on this itinerary since it is easier and shorter. The glacier to the Cho La Col on the Kanchung side is easy with only a few most harmless crevasses. The altitude itself is also a challenge. Its altitude can easily suffer you with high altitude sickness. Weather at such a great heights is unpredictable. The weather can change any time. So, for the successful climb, you need to be very much familiar with the Nirekha Peak Difficulty.

Nirekha Peak Climbing Season
Peak Climbing in Nepal is a seasonal activity. Autumn and Spring are the best seasons for climbing most of the mountains in Nepal. Autumn Season (September, October & November) and Spring Season (March, April & May) is the perfect time for Nirekha Peak Climbing. During these months, the days will be sunny and warm in the Himalayas. The skies will be clear and the atmosphere of the Himalayas will be alluring. Thus, we can have great views of the mountains. Nevertheless, some adventure-seeking clients who do not like hustle and bustle during the journey also can choose December, January, and February months for this trip. Monsoon season (June, July, and August) will be pretty difficult time for climbing in the Himalayas because of monsoon. During monsoon the trails will be slippery, muddy and there will be landslides too.

Nirekha Peak Climbing Preparation
The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. Preparation is a key to success of any activity. Good preparations are must for the successful peak climbing. You need to consider several things before going for peak climbing. For the successful Nirekha Peak Climbing, your physique plays a vital role. So, you must prepare yourself before the climb.

Otherwise, you can join gym and have aerobic training, cardio, stress endurance training, hiking trainings etc. You can also practice jogging, cycling, hiking, on a regular basis. Your previous experiences on mountaineering are also important. So, you must practice hiking to some smaller peaks. Similarly, you should be careful about your diet.

Moreover, you must be mentally ready to cope up with the adverse situations in the mountain. The weather is unstable at high altitude and you should also spend couple of days in a camp.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness.
Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema.
Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.
