Overview

Nirekha Peak climbing is a pronounced summit that lies in the border of the Himalayan range in the Khumbu region. Nirekha peak moderately situated in the range of Lobuche peak and to the east of Cho-La Col quite distance high the Cho- La Pass. The peak is recently opened by the Nepal Mountaineering Association and categorized in the list of grade “A” among the trekking peaks. The peak summit needs some technical skills in mount climbing. Only the experienced climber should attempt to conquer this peak. Nirekkha peak offers two routes. One route leads from Kanchung Base Campe and others from the Lake Base Camp. The Khanchung route is short and easier. Our itinerary is based on the Khanchung trail. We trace via Glacier to the Cho La Col which is quite normal, easy and has few gorges.
 
The scale of our trail is mostly ice and snow. The trail despite having small altitude differences requires good acclimatization. The summit appeals to one of the best views of the Himalayan region. The top of the peak grants outstanding opportunity to view several top mountains like Mt. Everest (8848 meters), Mt. Nuptse (7,861 meters), Mt. Lhotse(8,516 meters / 27,940 ft), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 meters/ 26,864 ft.) above sea level., and much other adjoining Himalayan ranges. Nirekha Peak at the elevation of 6159 meters lies in the Mahalangur region in the deep of the Himalayas. It is close to the Tibetan border and concealed among the famous gigantic mountains like Everest, Cholatse, and Cho Oyu.
 
 The western climbers were recently permitted to climb this peak. The design of this peak is straightforward. We require equipment like ice-ax, fixed rope section, and crampons. This peak is favorable to the trekkers or climbers who have a good physical condition with some experience of climbing peaks. The ideal period for Nirekha peak climb is Autumn and Spring.

Good to Know

1) Physical Fitness
Nirekha  is little technical peak, so before climbing your guide will train you about some climbing technique as well as introduce with climbing gear.One should be physically fit  before to do the any trekking and mountaineering. It is long hike so without any training the first two/three days will tough for you. So some basic physical fitness like  squat, Mountain climbers ( which can be done in home),running,biking , stair climbing,and swiming will help lot to do trekking  in the mountains, so it is highly recommanded  2/3 months prior to your departure for the trekking or mountaineering.

(2)Foods and Drinks
While in the mountain,  it is highly recommanded you to drink plenty of fluids like water,soups, teas  as well as foods. We will provide the sufficient and hygiene food as per your choice in whole trek.However some private snacks as chocolates bars, cookies are also highly recommanded which you can take from kathmandu or you can buy on the way in lodges or in shops.

(3)Drinking water
One should drink at least 3-4 litres of water every day in order to get  hydrated the body which helps lot to be away from altitude sickness.You can buy the bottled water all the way  cost from Rs 80 ( Which is equivalent to 80 cents )to Rs 400 (which is equivalent to 4 USD), but the bottled waters are not highly recommanded because as we are environmentally sensitive and also expensive. Whole area except in Gorakshep where drinking waters facility is poor, in that place you have to buy the bottled water in compulsorily. We highly recommend you to carry the reusable water bottle and  buy boiled water in lodges/teahouse which also makes your sleeping bag very warm while going to bed, to use sterpin or take chlorine or iodine tablets  to purify the drinking water.While in Climbing we will have our own kitchen crew, so we will have properly treated water to fill up the bottle.

(4)Best time to Travel
Spring ( Mar-May)and Autumn ( Sep- Nov) are  known as best months to trek in Nepal becuase of the stable clear dry skies which permits to enjoy the spectacular mountain views but mostly lodges, hotels and trails are busy and crowded. Spring season is pleasant and suitable with warm tempreture for trekking and climbing the big mountains as well, so Everest  basecamp will be full of tents and looks like small tented city. Untill end of october, the tempreture will be mild cold. Weather will be stable with clear blue sky, dry and at the same time one of the popular religious festivals  named Manirimdu festival will be held in Tyangboche Monastery.
Winter and summer are also good if you would prefer less crowdy, and ready to face the some challanges like snow, cold, and rain.Even in winter weather will always be clear but the these three months are coldest month of the year and sometimes snow falls. In Summer, It is very good to do trekking, tempreture will be warm, those who are keen to botanist, summer is the best but the due to unstable weather the views of mountains are very rare.
Both the Spring and Autumn season are good for peak climbing, in spring little crowd than Autumn.


5) Altitude Sickness
For the Nirekha  climbing we do proper  acclimatization  in Gokyo Ri, that will be proper acclimatization  for NIrekha climbing.Trekking in Everest region is one of the highest trekking in world.In high altitude , the mass of oxygen will be less, so everyone feels difficult to breath as well as mild headache, dizziness etc.This is one of the biggest challanges in mountain.In the altitude, there are many rules to make our body adaptable to the  altitude. Acclimatization is one of the important factor  to adjust our body get used to the altitude. All our itineries are designed with proper acclimatization  day in every 1000 mtr climbing.The most important rules that we have to follow in altitude is walk slowly, keep drinking plenty of  fluids as water , soups etc to make our body hydrated, and keep our body warm. Our staffs and guide will always do their best  as they can, eventhough incase of any sickness,injury one should avoid their rest trip and should come down.

(6)Travel Insurance
It is compulsory to buy the proper travel insurance policy with genuine insurance company, it should cover the emergency helicopter evacuation as well as medical treatment incase of severe injury or sickness and Policy  should include coverage at the altitudes up to 6500 Mtr.
(7)Bag pack and duffel bag
Our duffel bag should be maximum 15kg including hand bag. Only the neccesary things should be packed and the stuffs which are not neccesary on trek will be stored in hotel in Kathmandu.One porter will carry max 30 Kg,among two clients one porter will be provided.All the climbing gears except climbing boot  will be provided by Khumbu Alpine Travel.

Above that, there is good facility of wifi with purchasing data card of Everst link.If you buy the biggest data pack in Namche which is in 50 GB cost of Rs 3000 ( equivalent to 30 USD)it works whole area of Everest region perfectly except Thame valley so You can enjoy with  social media or connects with your family, friends or loved one.

(9)Flight to Lukla
Lukla Tenzing hillary airport  is only one airport to get to the Everest region, The mountain weather is always unpredictable and flights always depend on weather, Mostly time of spring and autumn will be good and there will be regular flights . If the weather became bad flight will be delay and our pre planned trip can be extend. So we always should keep 2/3 days extra incase of irregular flight.Another option is to take helicopter, for that less visibility  than aeroplane will be work. But helicopter cost is doubled than regular aeroplane cost which is not included in our trip cost and should be bear by oneself.
These days due to the high air traffic congestion in Kathmandu airport, domestic flights to/from Lukla is operated from Manthali airport which is 135 KM away from Kathmandu, we have to start early from kathmandu by road to catch the flight from Manthali.


(10)Sanitation
In mostly places toilet are  common and need to use the same toilet  using by everyone else. Mostly place there may not be available of hand washing water, so highly recommend to take hand sanitizer by yourself and most importantly toilet papers or wet tissue paper should always  be in your day bag.

For Trekking and Climbing you will be provided different guide.

(13) Budgeting
 Budegeting depends upon many factors specially in Kathmandu where there are too many choices.Hotels in Kathmandu include in trip cost on basis of BB plan. So average expenses per day in Kathmandu will be Rs 2000 for lunch and Dinner, if you prefer some other activities as  drinks, to do massage, or to go in bar/pub Rs 5000 ( equivalent to USD 50 ) is enough. On the trek, all the meals and hot drinks will be provided by company, Extra expeses as Hot shower, battery charging, wifi, boiled water for bottle, extra snacks  bars, Soft drinks and hard drinks should borne by  oneself,In average Rs 2000(eqivalent to 20 USD) is enough on the trek.
