Trek Overview

Khumbu valley trekking is the homeland of much traditional Sherpa culture including the world highest mountain Mount Everest. Every field is surrounded by a meter high stone wall providing vistas on all sides. Every single roof is green with a concept of establishing a green valley except for the roof of the Gompa, school, and hospital.

Khumbu valley in 1975 mount Everest and the below it was designated as Sagarmatha National Park in recognition of the region’s unique and globally significant cultural and natural attributes. The Park protects high mountain ecosystems plants and wildlife from the valley bottom at 8500 ft to the icy summits of most of the highest mountains in the world at over 28000 ft. The Sagarmatha National Park is considered by too many because the study of historical and contemporary landscape changes most of it negative in the high Himalayas. It was assumed that the major change from forest to grassland was done by the ancestors of the Sherpa’s during their 400 years of settlement population growth and pasture expansions.

The green valleys of Khumbu the summer monsoon last from June to September during this quiet but productive season people carry out their chores of herding and farming. Farming isn’t easy on these mountains but all including businessmen own plots of land on which they grow potatoes buckwheat or barley to feed their families. Most fields for cultivating food crops are at relatively lower elevations of about 3300 m near the main Sherpa village during the cool winter herds of yaks are grazed on nearby hillsides when the summer comes the yaks are taken up to the high valley where the rains have to change the dry mountainsides to rich green pastures.

Khumbu valley trekking can observe the main festival of Dumje celebrate in each village at the beginning of the monsoon in late June or early July Dumje began as a way to unite the newly settled village after the Sherpa’s arrived in Khumbu. Each year eight households in a village have a turn which comes about every sixteen years to sponsor the festival through this huge financial obligation may cause less affluent families to borrow substantial sums of money from lenders as most families see Dumje sponsorship as worthy community involvement. The  Khumbu valley Everest base camp trekking people want to try once in a lifetime, organized by Himalayan Smile Treks. Khumbu valley trekking is the top of the world, Everest is the most exhilarating and adventurous trail in the world.

Trek FAQs

You don't need to carry all your stuff which is not required for trekking. You can be left at your hotel or Himalayan Smile Treks office in Kathmandu. Nearly all hotels have a luggage deposit but we do not store clients valuables in our office. Also the hotel you will provide locker their you can store your valuables things. After you come back from trekking, we handover your luggage and other stuff to you.

We assign one of our officers to look after you, who constantly stay in touch with you during your stay in Nepal. We give you his mobile number. Or you may directly contact to our office number also.

In fact you don't need to be a mountaineer with rippling muscles to enjoy trekking. If you are reasonably fit, have a spirit of mountain journey and like walking, you are always qualified for any trekking in Nepal. You do not need any previous experience. However we suggest you some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before you embark on journey.

If you're doing camping trek we offer standard meals as well as a vegetarian meal option. Just let us know if you want vegetarian meals when you book your trek. But we can't fulfill every trekkers requirement(i.e., dietary requirements or special meals ). Also tea house trekking you will get vegetarian meal. Please tell about your trekking guide about details of your food allergy.

If your solo trekkers we will provide you on single room in tea house. In peak season (October, November, December , March, April) you have to share room with a member of the same sex but it is rarely.

You will be served freshly cooked food during trekking. In all tea houses/ lodges along trekking trail Western, Continental and Nepali dishes are available. Three meals a day will be provided you in full board (Gold) package.

Up to a maximum of 5-6 hours a day with lunch breaks along the trail. The maximum altitude is depends upon which trek you are going. In Nepal normally the maximum altitude of most of the trekking falls between 3500m to 5000m.

To some trekkers when they go over 3000 m they may feel some affect of altitude sickness like shortness of breath and possibly a light headed which is fairly common. Sometime they may also get diarrhea as well as sprains and muscle aches. In such case our guide who is experienced in first aid treatment and high altitude sickness will advise you about any health requirements and also treat you. Altitude sickness is dangerous but it can be avoidable. If your follow a few simple rules you will not suffer from altitude sickness. Rules are trek slowly with your guide, drink at least two liters of water per day (not including beer or soft drinks), If you feel shortness of breath, a slight headache or dizziness, tell your guide and rest immediately. Lie down, drink water. If you are still feeling unwell you may consider going down a few hundred meters. Do not pretend you are okay, and do not go down alone. For further information of altitude sickness

You must disclose at the time of booking any medical condition that could affect your ability to do the Himalaya trekking. The Himalayan Smile Treks advise to do trek who has with heart conditions, knee problems, severe asthma or pregnant should not participate in the trek. The Himalayan Smile Treks could not be responsible in Himalaya trekking due to the lack of the medical facilities any problems due to your special dietary requirements or medical condition

There is no government restriction on the age limit for the Nepal trekking. If the trekkers children under the age of 8 years old and adults over 70 years old. The Himalayan Smile Treks recommend to hire an extra porter(our package price including one porter for two people).

In our trek packages one porter is including for two people. The one porter can carry 20-25 kg your luggage( per person 12 KG). If you're interested to hire extra porter we will recommend to hire in Lukla for Everest base camp trek. The porter cost approximately USD 15. If you want to hire a porter then please let us know at the time you make your trek booking. After Lukla it is very difficult to get porter. if your hire porter above the Lukla or Namche bazaar the porter cost USD 20 to 30 but they cannot always be reliable.

As general rule, it is hot enough during the days to wear an open-neck shirt with shorts and you will not be cold. During the evening, it gets cold so, long trousers and a warm jersey is essential.

Please consult your local doctor and follow his advice. However, if you are taking any particular medicines, it would be best to bring them with you.

There are trekking shops at Thamel, in Kathmandu, where you can easily rent or buy items like sleeping bags, down jackets, walking sticks, rucksacks, duffel bags and other equipments on reasonable price.

We will recommend you to rent or buy sleeping bags as low as -30 °C. This temperature is suitable for Everest base camp trekking(above 4000m). We will suggest to buy /rent sleeping bags and so you can try it out. Also you can rent /buy sleeping bag in Kathmandu trekking store.

If you are flying from a remote mountain airstrip like Lukla, Jomsom, Simikot, Taplejung and Dolpo, you should keep at least two spare days before your departure for home.

Trekking areas like Everest, Annapurna and Langtang, all most tea houses/ mountain lodges have telephone facilities. From there you can make international calls to your home and friends staying any part of the world.

Nepal is absolutely safe country to travel. Our staffs do take every precaution to ensure the comfort and safety of the trekkers. Before 2006 when Maoist movement was going on, there was a kind of fear in few trekking destinations. But today they have also come to peaceful political stream. So there is no more any fear and need to give donation for any party.

We offer you an experienced trekking guide. He is in charge of your overall trekking. This is the person you should go to with all problems, concerns and questions. He is well trained in all aspects of trekking, high altitude medicine, first aid and emergency procedure. He is selected in terms of his professionalism.

Normally one porter carries 20 to 25 kg of stuff. Normally we provide one porter for every two trekkers

Our group size is minimum 2 and maximum 12 however we will start trek from One people. We can organize trek according to customer requested date.

In Everest region trekking we offer you accommodation in tea house (mountain lodge). A Tea House is the combination of guest house, restaurant, and social hang out. The rooms are spare with twin beds and very little additional furniture. Around 5000 m trekking you don't need crampons but if you're going cross the high pass like Larkya la pass(5,235 m), Throng la Pass(5216 m) and Cho La Pass( 5,420 m) it is recommended. We will provide clean sleeping bag during the trekking.

Most of the Tea Houses have running water facility. Many of them also available hot water for shower. The hot shower is bucket shower(not running hot shower) except Namche bazaar. Most bathrooms are shared and toilets can be either squat type of the western version.
