Expedition to Island Peak with Everest Base Camp Trek


Your trekking starts after your arrival at Lukla (2,840 m) via the flight from Kathmandu. You shall meet your guide and porter(s) here and start your trek off to Phakding. Trekking from Phakding takes you to Namche Bazar—one of the largest Sherpa settlements in this region. You can expand your knowledge of the Sherpa history by visiting the nearby Sherpa museum. You can also spend the acclimatization day by exploring the nearby villages, monasteries, and valleys. Via Tengboche (3,860 m), Pheriche (4,280 m), Lobuche (5,020 m), Gorakshep (5,170 m), you shall reach all the way to the Everest Base Camp. The Mt. Everest looks so close that you would wonder if you could touch it with your hand outstretched. From there, you shall return back Gorakshep to stay overnight. Next day, early in the morning you shall ascend to Kalapatthar to view the most staggering view of sunrise. When the fresh rays of sun hit the mountains, you shall be arrested for a while. Returning back to Gorakshep, you shall trek towards Dingboche, which is at 6-7 hours walking distance. Via Chukkung, you shall trek to the Island Peak base camp. Next day, you shall ascend to the top of the Island Peak. You shall again enjoy the panoramic view of mountains and landscape from the top. Then, you shall descend down to the base camp. Via Pangboche/Tengboche, you shall retrace your steps back to Namche Bazar. Via Manju, Phakding, you shall arrive at Lukla. Your guide and porter(s) shall part away from here, and you might enjoy having some celebration with them for the successful completion of trek and climbing. Catching a flight, you shall return back to Kathmandu.

Travle insurance


Travel Insurance is mandatory for all customers who looking to travel in Nepal with the Mountain Hiking & Trekking .The Travel Insurance must cover both the evacuation and medical cost
 There are many insurance companies that offer travel insurance services over the internet. You can choose from a wide variety of insurance companies as per your convenience. Especially when it comes to trekking in Nepal, there is always a narrow chance of minor health issues, injuries and most importantly – altitude sickness.
 
It is essential that you prefer an insurance rule that covers the cost of the helicopter rescue from the mountains in case of main accidents and delicate mountain sickness (AMS). through such great cases of an emergency evacuation, a helicopter service is the only way out of the mountains. This includes a rescue team for both – ground evacuation and rescue. Which is why we need your travel insurances to cover the cost of helicopter services and evacuation from the Himalayas

It is forever recovered to be safe than apologetic.

Before you plan your trip with Mountain Hiking & Trekking do make sure that your travel insurance covers all the costs mentioned above from a reliable company.
