Everest View Trek with Wildlife Safari In Nutshell

Everest View Trek with Jungle  Safari in Chitwan is an exciting and fun-filled holiday trip that takes you and your family from the highlands of the Everest region to the lowlands of Chitwan. This trip offers a close look at the mesmerizing beauty of Mt. Everest and then immerses ourselves in the exotic jungles of Chitwan.

Everest View Trek and Wildlife Jungle Safari is designed for those who wish to experience multi- adventure activities in a single package trip. In our decade-long experience, we worked with clients who love to explore new places and intend to try new activities. To cater to the interests of visitors with short time and much desires we have designed a 13-day itinerary trip like this. During the trips, you will enjoy a short trek and a Wildlife jungle safari with stunning Mountain views.

Starting from Lukla, we take the easy hike to Namche, where we experience the snowy beauty and the spectacular views of Everest towering above. After seeing Everest up close, and experience the Himalayan culture in the surrounding villages, we head back to Kathmandu and then, from there, travel to Chitwan. In Chitwan, basking in the warmth of the sun, one can explore the dense forest either on an elephant safari or in dugout canoes. We’ll see wild animals and experience the unique lifestyle of the Tharu people, who still live in traditional villages. This trip enables you to see the variety of nature and culture, which is Nepal at its best.

        Useful Info

        Meals

        All meals — breakfast, lunch, and dinner — will be provided during the trek, and breakfast will only be provided in Kathmandu. We host welcome and farewell dinners for our guests. During the trek, we have breakfast and dinner at tea-houses or lodges where we spend nights while there will be lunch at tea-houses on the way. You have the option to choose from Nepali, continental, Tibetan, and Indian cuisines. As we take care of our guests, we ensure that you are getting healthy food. We prioritize locally produced organic food and also provide you with seasonable fruits.

        Note: If you are a vegetarian, let us know in advance so that we could make proper arrangements for food as per your wish during the trek

        Accommodation

        You will be accommodated in a three-star standard hotel in Kathmandu and a guesthouse/teahouse during the trek. All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. A single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional. Adventure Club Trek will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also, note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower altitudes but, it might be complicated to find them at higher altitudes.

        Drinking-Water

        Adventure Club provides all the meals on the trek but doesn't provide water. The best option is to treat the local water either with chlorine/iodine tablets or use a steripen. The tea houses will give you good quality free water and, you can also get along the trail but, you will need to treat it. If you are using the tablets make sure they dissolve completely (about 30 mins). On most treks, you can buy mineral water along the trail. A liter of mineral water at lower elevation tea houses costs around USD 1 but at higher elevations can cost up to $4 so the cost can add up.

        Acclimatization And High-Altitude Sickness

        The acclimatization planned during the trip helps trekkers adapt to the environment with less oxygen. Our body needs time to adjust to the higher altitudes. Rushing to the higher elevation without acclimatization may result in acute mountain sickness (AMS) which could be fatal. The trekkers may suffer from AMS above 2,400m/7,875ft as the amount of oxygen becomes less and less with the increase in elevation.

        We can categorize AMS into three categories with its symptoms. The trekker suffering from normal AMS feels giddy, gets headaches, Nausea, and is out of breath, and is suggested not to worry as it disappears after the body gets used to less amount of oxygen. Likewise, trekkers suffering from mild AMS show symptoms of dizziness, muscular pain, insomnia, headache, vomit, loss of appetite, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Mild AMS can be treated with anti-headache medicines.

        A person suffering from serious AMS shows heightened symptoms including shortness of breath even while taking rest. The trekker with serious symptoms can barely walk and fluids may start building up in the lungs. The trekker having serious AMS has to be taken to the lower altitude immediately.

        Advanced cases of AMS

        If AMS is not treated in time, it can be life-threatening and lead to edema, a condition in which fluid is accumulated in the tissues of the body. Following are the two serious altitude sicknesses caused at high altitudes.

        High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE)

        In HACE, the brain gets swollen which can lead to coma and even death. Its symptoms are paralysis on one side of the body, bladder dysfunction, fatigue, bowel dysfunction, loss of coordination, and confusion. Descend to a lower altitude as soon as possible to prevent the worsening of the condition.

        High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)

        Fluid is accumulated in the lungs which also increases the capillary pressure. Its symptoms include severe shortness of breath at rest, dry cough that later leads to producing pink frothy sputum, and fatigue. Important Note: Severe cases of AMS are pretty rare. All our guides at the Adventure Club Trek, are aware of the symptoms of AMS and can handle it with care. We prioritize acclimatization, talk about the use of Diamox beforehand and counsel all our trekkers on the risk and preventive factors before and during the trip. Your safety is our main concern.

        First-Aid Kit

        Our guides and porters are equipped with a basic first-aid kit during regular treks. For expeditions that take on the isolated and off-the-beaten trekking paths, a comprehensive first-aid kit is compulsory, the same goes for climbing expeditions as well.

        • A bandage in case of sprains.
        • Plasters/ Band-aids and antiseptic ointments for simple cuts
        • Iodine or water filter (optional) instead of buying bottled mineral water

        • Gel hand cleaner/sanitizer.

        Note: We can add medical supplies as per the special needs of the trekkers to the first-aid kit given above.

        Equipment And Packing List

        Best Time to Travel

        Autumn (Sept -Nov) and Spring (March-May) are the best seasons for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. Trekking in Summer or Monsoon (June to Aug) will be affected by rain but a summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.

        Visa And Entry Procedures

        Everyone needs a visa to enter Nepal except Indian nationals. Citizens of the SAARC nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan do not require a visa for 30 days. Fortunately, getting a Nepal visa is an easy process. Tourist visas are issued on arrival at the international airport and official overland entry points. However, travelers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Cameroon, Ghana, Somalia, Swaziland, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Liberia are not issued visas on arrival. After you arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will find electronic kiosks that will assist your visa processing. Taking the completed form and paying the visa fee, you need to stay in the long immigration queue for your visa on arrival.

        Visitors can now apply for online visa within15 days of their arrival date in Nepal. For this, you will need your Nepal hotel address and a digital passport-sized photo that needs to be uploaded to the online application. After submitting the form online, you need to print out the confirmation page which has to be furnished at the immigration section in Kathmandu airport along with your passport and the required visa fee. You can apply for your online Nepal visa here.

        Tourists can also apply for a Nepali visa at the local Nepali Embassy or Consulate located in their respective countries. Or, they can even mail their visa application to the visa office near their location, but well ahead of time to allow sufficient processing time. Nepal visa information for all categories of travelers and their correspondence cost can be very handy, so for more information and contact details of the Nepali Embassies and Consulate around the world, you may CLICK HERE.

        Whichever way you enter Nepal, you will be given a 15/30/90 day visa as per your requirement. The general Nepal tourist visa fee on arrival for multiple entries is:

        15 days – US$30, 30 days – US$50, and 90days – US$125

        Tourist visas can be extended for a maximum of 150 days in a year and these extensions are granted only at the department of immigration offices at Pokhara and Kathmandu. For more information on Nepal visa, visit our visa information page.

        Our Trekking Guides/Leaders 

        Here at Adventure Club, our staff is like family. We only use locals to support their communities and we train our staff rigorously to be the best they can be – for you! 

        •  Full first aid training
        • Guide Training (trekking)
        • English and other common languages (as requested) 
        • Village and land Conservation 
        • Mountaineering (for specialty expedition or climbing treks)

        All our guides are carefully trained for leadership as good leadership is vital for your trek to be enjoyable, safe, and successful. Most of our guides grew up in Sherpa country or other mountainous parts of Nepal. Their pride in their region shows itself in the way they lead treks and interface with you. 

        Porters Care

        Courtesy and respect are fundamental for an enjoyable and worthwhile experience on any team. Our porters are an essential, integral part of each trekking team, and as such, they are well-treated and well-paid. After your trek, we believe you will find that they have fully earned your gratitude and respect. We do expect all trekkers to keep the weight of their baggage under 22kgs/40lbs. Adventure Club Trek maintains a full commitment to the rights of our porters, providing them with appropriate clothing, gear, and lodging. In case of serious accident or sickness, they receive the same care as anyone else employed on the trekking team, even including evacuation by helicopter at our expense if appropriate. We fully support the IPPG (International Porter Protection Group), which strives to maintain and improve our porter's working conditions.

        Travel Insurance

        To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof you can pay for it. Adventure Club Trek has an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism or you may have a difficult time settling a claim.

        Electricity, WIFI, and  Battery  Recharge

        During your trek on the Everest region, electricity is available to recharge your phones, laptop, iPads from micro-hydro power, and solar panels on a paying basis. As for Wi-Fi, there are no hotspots along the trekking trail after Namche. The only two places offering free Wi-Fi are Starbucks coffee in Lukla and Everest Bakery in Namche. At other places upwards, you need to pay for using internet services, which increases gradually with the altitude.

        Communication On Trek 

        On Everest  View Point Trek in Nepal, the internet service will be available at lodges with some extra service charge. You can also contact your family and friends from the guesthouses, but as we reach high altitudes, the communication will be through the phone for safety purposes. We communicate with all our valuable clients through the team leader at least once a day to make sure you are fine and enjoying the trip. The Adventure Club Trek office in Kathmandu will constantly touch for help you may need during the trek. Depending on the network you use, there could be a poor signal to network before the high altitude. Upon your request, we can provide you with a separate local sim card for a better network. Many places have WIFI service available at an extra cost.

        Group Size and Team Composition 

        We always try to form a small group of like-minded people to give them a wonderful and perceptive travel experience. It provides opportunities to interact and share in a fun-filled environment when out in the wilderness. Generally, our travel group comprises a maximum of 16 members. We need at least two participants to run our fixed departure dates. For private trips, the number of group members does not apply. We always strive to form a team ensuring that the members are comfortable with one another.

        Tipping 

        Tipping is not mandatory in Nepal as most services include a service charge. However, if you want to express your gratitude, you are free to offer a tip to drivers, and hotel staff among others. People usually welcome such generosity. When it comes to tipping your porters or trekking leaders, use your discretion as per the quality of the services. Tip money does not form a part of our employees’ wages. However, you can use tipping as a way of showing appreciation for excellent service at the end of the trip.
