Can you provide me more information about the tea houses along the Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking route?
Based on location, the tea houses vary on their quality and style on this trek. Each of them have communal room downstairs with one or two bed bedrooms above them. You have to share toilet facilities. Some have hot shower facilities but some will have a stand pipe. Tea houses use a burning stove in main communal area. The other rooms are unheated. Tea houses do not have money exchange facilities. We recommend you to exchange cash in Kathmandu.
At the lower altitudes there is electricity to charge your electronics. As we go higher tea houses become more basic. Cooler temperature drain battery life, ensure your batteries last a little longer by putting it inside pocket of your coat during the day or under your pillow at night.

Do a guides or porters carry oxygen tanks on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking route?
No, as there is enough time to acclimatize while trekking there is no need for them. If someone feels the affects of altitude then there are facilities along the trek at various points. It’s easy to get if required.

How many guides and porters will be there in our group?
A group will have a group leader or a guide who will lead you on the trek. Porters will be there to carry your baggage packs as well as all camping gear. One porter will carry two trekkers’ baggages. The number of supporting staff will depend upon your group size.

How many liters of water  do I have to carry at one time on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking route?
At most, 3-4 liters is sufficient. You will be able to refill bottles at lunch time. When you are at high altitude you have to drink more water to alleviate symptoms of altitude.

Is it necessary to carry Trekking poles?
Yes, trekking poles make you easy to walk over rough or steep terrain. Trekking poles makes your body and leg to move more safely. Furthermore, it will help relieve the stress on your legs. So, we suggest you to use them.

Is bottled water available everywhere on the Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking route?
Tea houses and other small shops on the way have stores which sell bottled water and other supplies you may deisre. There are no any plastic recycling facilities in Nepal, we encourage you to bring chlorine tablets  or a filter and use previously boiled water in the tea houses.

Do I need to bring iodine tablets for purifying the water?
You have to bring iodine tablets with you. Chlorine tablets are widely available. The most effective and commonly used version of chlorine is chlorine dioxide, which is tasteless and odorless. Tablets can be bought cheaply and usually 1 tablet is sufficient to purify 1 liter of water. Neutralizing tablets can also be bought to get rid of the smell and taste of chlorine or iodine. This will need to be done for water obtained using hand pumps or in streams during the trek.

What are the effects of going so high?
Altitude produces physical changes in the body. The higher you go, more pronounced those changes. If you gain a lot of elevation quickly then you experience dizziness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration, you are probably suffering from altitude sickness. In rare cases this may worsen, so the group leader keeps a close watch on all trekkers. The group leader is trained to recognize Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If a trekker show any signs of AMS they will be evacuated to a lower, safe altitude immediately. To minimize effects of altitude you ascend slowly which allows for safe acclimatization.

What if I get ill while on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking?
It depends on the nature of your illness. If you suddenly feel dizzy or weak, you have to sit or lie down. If you still feel sick, keep a warm and rest until you can get medical help. You will be carried down or evacuated if you do not start to feel better. Although we provide a first aid kit, we advise travelers to take a personal first aid kit too.
In serious cases, you may need helicopter rescue. Our guide will suggest you to use it if your condition is very serious. Therefore, helicopter rescue insurance is necessary for every trekker before you come to trek with Trekking Planner.

Would you recommend taking a Down Jacket?
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. WEven 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.

Is alcohol permitted on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking route?
Alcohol is consumed in Nepal. You can buy it in tea houses in the trek. Local alcohol is also available. However we suggest not to drink alcohol at high altitude.

Before You Go

Activity Level rating of Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking Route
Someone who is easily able to hike 5-6 hours per day carrying a light weight backpack will be fit enough to do this trek. There are stone steps up and down which are uneven. Due to some long descents your legs may feel shaky so we recommend the use of walking poles. The maximum altitude of the trek is 5545m, so you need to be careful about your health and altitude related risks. To properly acclimatize one needs to walk slowly and drink lots of water.

Safe drinking water on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking Route
Generally, you can find bottled water at lower altitude but it gets harder to find it at higher elevations. Furthermore, it gets more expensive. In those higher altitudes we recommend you drink previously boiled water which can be purchased at tea houses for a small fee. You can also bring chlorine tablets or a backcountry rated water filter to purify your water if you wish. Due to the lack of regulation and difficulty of disposing of plastic bottles it is highly encouraged to use boiled water. This is very helpful to protect our environment.

Recharging Batteries of Electronic Items on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking Route
Hydro electricity or solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like cameras, batteries, iPods, phones etc. Tea houses or lodges may charge small fee per hour for charging facilities. We recommend buying adaptors before the trip since plugs are limited. In Nepal 220-240 volt power is used and sockets fit round and flat plugs.

Extra Advice for Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking Route
In your trekking you might come across some cute, sweet children that you may want to distribute balloons, chocolates, money and pens. Many trekkers have felt the same. But it is best not to do so because it encourages them to beg. While trekking, keep your valuables safe. Do not leave valuables behind. Ensure that you lock your door when you leave your room and do not hang anything outside at night.

Garbage Disposal
Use a dustbins and do not throw anything into the fire. Carry garbage until dustbin facilities are available. Do not litter on the trail. Please be conscious of conserving the environment.

Spending Money per Day
This mainly depends on your spending habits. Normally you should allocate US $9-12 per meal in Kathmandu and Pokhara. While trekking, US $10-15 a day is good enough to buy drinks and chocolates.

All guest houses offer hot showers, which can be a shower stall or a bucket of hot water. Please note that at high altitude there may not be enough hot water for all the trekkers. Limit the use of hot water unless the water is solar heated for ecological reasons. Every lodge has some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. If the water is frozen simply ask your guide to get warm bowl of water.
Toilets are mainly Asian style squat toilets. Toilets are outside of your room. You are in the mountains: Cleanliness will vary. You should not throw toilet paper in the toilet. Instead use rubbish bin that is kept inside the toilet room.

Tea Houses
On this trekking route local people have built tea house lodges. The are quite charming and include food and beverage facilities. A simple room usually has two single beds. While staying in the tea houses you will have the opportunity to interact with the charming local people and experience their hospitality. Don’t be shy, say Namaste!

Altitude Sickness
Altitude Sickness can affect anyone. At high altitude the decrease in atmospheric pressure makes breathing difficult due to less oxygen. Mainly, it happens above 3300m (10,000ft). Signs and symptoms are as follows:

  • Headache/Dizziness

  • tiredness/fatigue
  • Sleepy but can’t sleep
