Trip FAQ

Trip FAQ

The Kala Patthar hike is about a 3-4 hour return trip so not very long. Most tours will do the hike early in the morning of the first day of descending back down to Lukla.

No, the Kala Patthar hike does not require any extra amenities, meals or accommodation so it comes at no extra cost.

By the time you reach the Kala Patthar hike you should already be very well acclimatized due to the structure of the base camp trek. Although Kala Patthar is the highest point on most trips, you do not spend much time at that high altitude as you descend shortly after reaching the peak

Yes. The weather is changeable in the Himalaya so you should expect to experience all four seasons in one day. Make sure you have plenty of warm layers which you can shed or add as required. Even in winter, it can be as warm as 19C during the day. The higher the altitude the higher the temperature difference is at night. It can get very cold at night, around -10C in October/November, and around -20C from December to February.

For our Kala Pattar trek, travellers should be comfortable with occasional rough terrain, but expect long steep climbs. So, some days could include ascents and descents of 500 metres or more. Remember: speed isn’t important, stamina, confidence and continuity are.

Yes! And don’t forget quality socks. Happy feet equal a happy trekker, so seek out an outdoor and gear store that will help you get well-fitted, suitable, durable and comfortable shoes that’ll last in the long run.

There are limited medical facilities on the route, but our guides carry a full medical kit and are trained extensively on how to use it. We also carry portable altitude chambers, which are useful if someone is suffering from AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) but cannot be evacuated due to bad weather. Emergencies are dealt with by the guide. The safety of our travellers and crew is our number one priority. If a fellow trekker in your group needs to descend, then an assistant guide would go with them. We have lots of support staff on the trek, so the person descending would be well looked after, and won’t impact on the rest of the group’s experience. In a serious case, evacuation would be by helicopter.
