The End of Free Rooms in Everest. Good or Bad?

However, in November 2018 the people of Everest realized that they needn’t put up with this corrupt practice. If they simply came together and started charging room prices just like everywhere else in the world, this practice would just stop. It was as simple as that. And it isn’t exactly expensive either. For Lobuche and Gorakshep the room prices are set at NPR 700 (~USD 6.3) and for lodges below that the price is set at NPR 500 (~USD 4.5). This charge is collected by the Lodge Management Committee and not the lodges to ensure that it isn’t possible for trekking companies to play the lodges against each other anymore.

5 Best Side Trips of Everest Base Camp Trek!

Also, please note that for a trek like Everest Base Camp Trek, side trips are more than just cute good-to-have additions to the main trek. They are the excursions that will make sure that you are acclimatized well enough to fully enjoy the main trek. Basically, due to the altitude gain in the trek, there are two acclimatization breaks during a trek to Everest Base Camp: one at Namche and another at Pheriche/Dingboche. During these breaks you stay two nights at the same spot to give your body the chance to get used to the rarefied atomosphere. And the best way to increase your acclimatization is by going high during the day and coming back to sleep at a lower altitude. And the worst thing you can do is to stay at the same spot lazily throughout the day, or worse doze off. For one of the things that happens during acclimatization is that your blood thickens which increases the chance of internal blood clots especially if you are inactive.

Spare boy to Everest Summiteer- Story of a Nepali Guide

Pasang Salaka Sherpa, popularly known as Instructor Pasang among the Himalayan climbing fraternity, has a hearty boisterous laugh. Disarming and contagious, the laugh is the hallmark of the people of the high Himalayas. It is not the measured and polite laugh of a Kathmanduite or the shy and meek laugh of the lowlands. It is the laughter that shows openness, confidence and love of life that is so characteristic of the people of the mountains. It is part of the allure that keeps bringing adventurers back to Nepal, for in the 15 days in the Himalayas, they get to make believe that life isn’t complicated or stressful at all but rather as simple as the laughter they hear along the trails.
