Hello everyone,

My name is Eli and I am using the Forum's constant and as usual in recent years decided to add a small donation to the vast information and accumulates.

October 03-22.10.2014 made a trip to Nepal on a route known as «EBC and three tracks and then went to Kathmandu for several days before returning to Earth. The original plan was to start from JIRI but for reasons described later met with father NUNTALA and town name continued past the «EBC. I went 20 days total that moved approximately 245 km with about 18 km and 18 km ups cumulative declines when the heights range from 1450 lowest point to the highest point between 5630. All other nights in ishnano/vacation rentals/houses/hotels without tents. In total, we tried to stick to the original plan, but a sudden Blizzard a day and a half of us to go to one of the stripes and the rest though the program went into effect.

«EBC, can reach the three stripes in the following ways:
1 flight from Kathmandu to LUKLA) (about 25 minutes) and from there walk to «EBC.
2) drive from Kathmandu by bus/Jeep-SALLERI town (15-13) to LUKLA and walk 50 km – about 3.5 km increases/decreases.
3) drive from Kathmandu by bus/Jeep SHIVALAYA town (10-12 hours) and walking distance to LUKLA-90 km with about 6.5 km increases/decreases.
4) drive from Kathmandu by bus/Jeep into town JIRI (10 some eight hours) and walk 100 km to LUKLA-about 7 km increases/decreases.
Map of the area here :

Various information sources occasionally used:
1) book A Guide to Everest's First Edition 2014
1) story in the Hebrew way from LUKLA to EVEREST BASE CAMP including at GOKYO.
2) summations in Hebrew on Everest in the way storiessite.
3) slammed the three stripes in Hebrew HIKE Forum
4) private blog in English at tours in Nepal
5) different holidays in Nepal
* Should note that public transport often bhagim inactive.

Paper maps, GPS and highlights:
1) new paper map 2014 at 1:50000 containing the track from JIRI to «EBC features three tracks: tenzing-hillary everest trek to base camp: jiri-ne520 's map
2) collection of digital topographic maps of each different resolution Nepal topographic maps.
3) digital topographic maps for GARMIN

4) paper maps store that holds the updated maps in the physical store itself in THAMEL and you can order them over the Internet: PILIGRIMS ONLINE SHOP

Weather and terrain conditions:
Best seasons: October-mid-December, from March to mid-May.
Most days in October after sunrise to take as an hour or two to get through the mountains and the warm air when the sky often clean up. Towards 11:00-12:00 clouds begin to climb and valleys gradually cover the sky so often before 13:00 no longer has full sun and lasts until sunset. When snow and cold so it's special for 20 degrees a day and 10 degrees at night in the mountains around 4000 meters on average, whereas when snow and cold this is approximately 10 degrees during the day and 5 degrees at night. At the height of the cold night I measured with thermometer about 3 degrees and 10-rooms outside around 5000 feet elevation.
Before Blizzard which lasted a day and a half on a 13-14.10.2014 and they went down as snow accumulated 2 feet high points, according to reports, there was no snow at all on the path to CHUKUNG which is 4900 and CHUKUNG Lakes near 5100 height. The snow was only on the high mountains. After the storm, snow cover at different depths ranging from six inches to several inches depending on how many people passed by and attracted to the decline of the town lies at an altitude of 4400 LUNDEN some five days later.

Food water, showers, toilets, electricity, absorption, and accommodation:
Drinking water:
In Kathmandu, the only water to drink bottled water or juices.
The track has many water sources, and almost every home/village has a hose coming out of a peanut, but not recommend to drink directly without any filter tool allows us to a minimum because of contamination problems. For all I know this is no chemical impurities and therefore can use ordinary ceramic filters or chlorine tablets, iodine.
If you don't want to purify water or buy bottled water can be bought, then boiled at a lodge/restaurant/hotel for a fee (sometimes free).
* I used 2 liter bag which plugged in SAWYER's MINI filter port and drank all the time through the filter directly. When he woke up fearing water more contaminated than usual (twice a large towns) so in addition to the added chlorine tablets before the filter tool allows us.

You can bathe in rivers, but most exposed and full of people and very cold water because most rivers flow following thawing snow.
Accommodation there are mainly two types of cold water bucket showers, or hot baths of pipe, faucet with cold water, hot showers.
In most cases the bathrooms built in the House but will be closed and will cost money. There are also several outside showers.

In most places on the trail can get food and such Western drinks Coke/Pepsi, local beer, chocolate, TWIX, MARS, various cookies and hot dishes in style.
In most restaurants the food is based on rice, flour, lentils, noodles, potatoes, cereals, jams, honey and combining them with vegetable dishes (except local Greens, onions and garlic have a lot more), featured fruit (the only ones available are apples bananas), yak milk, mushrooms, chocolate, eggs, chicken, yak cheese, hard
Yak meat in some places and roast chicken.
These elements appear in many places names of local and western dishes.
Should note that in most places there are no fridges in most books and forums recommend avoid eating vegetables/fruits with rind and flesh.
* Culinary curiosity and personal cooks to try new things, I've tried all types of foods offered and gastronomic problems encountered.

Everywhere there is a bathroom in the style of bulls (with most ceramic) with a bucket of water bucket to papers in places there is also a Western-style toilet with toilet bucket for individual papers and has a debt with.
Most of the accommodation services will be little while large places are inside.
In most places on the track won't be toilet paper in the bathroom.

Leisure Web
A large number of lodges, large hotels primarily fee WIFI in major towns but the Internet slow down when the weather is unstable.
In LUKLA NAMACHE and there are also hotels, restaurants, shops and bakeries with free WIFI with a reasonable speed Internet rooms with computers (also exists in several other large towns).
In LUKLA NAMACHE and there are also a number of Western mountains.

In most places until NAMACHE reception. Above DENGBOCHE NAMACHE partial reception until and only in GORAKSHEP.
* There are some individual areas between the valleys where reception and you can identify them by the Sherpa porters, locals who know the places and call away.

Tension in Nepal: Nepal 230V 50 Hz C, D, M
Most outlets are 2-3 route circles a little larger than the standrti in back Israel so most standard Chargers with 2 pins fit (although not always such a good socket plug sitting).
Don't always have electricity available everywhere and at any time and should expect power outages of several hours/days in stormy weather and several hours in normal weather everywhere on the path (even in places large and expensive) because a very developed infrastructure of electricity.

Most of the Nepali people and things at the level of one kind or another in English at a level sufficient to maintain a basic conversation for clarification regarding the future walk or eat. The MENU of the restaurants are written in English and when to order food, dwelling services or restaurants, you will be asked to write the number needed.
Most signs in towns as well as in English (though still with many spelling errors).

Small towns have mostly (homes that add little and accommodations make the large restaurant room) when large and small medium-sized and large towns are also more quality hotels.
In most cases, small bedrooms built of wood with a single bed, two beds, three beds or a large number of extra beds in a large room dormitori style.
To NAMACHE rooms has a bed, pillow and linens are basic (you can ask for blankets if necessary). Over NAMACHE rooms also have a warm blanket.
Generally, there are no closets in simple/medium rooms.

Most restaurants/stores in Kathmandu are open from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in THAMEL.
Most restaurants/stores on track open at first light when the emerging owner. Some tethered to restaurants to order breakfast as early as tonight to prepare in advance.
All restaurants in the morning light a fire and boil water all morning.
All the dining rooms/restaurants of the stoves we light them have towards darkness (with yak jerky shit) or particularly cold days to lodge guests and homeowners can bask and tourists can dry the shoes.

Altitude sickness and prevention:
In General, altitude sickness is caused due to rise faster over 2500 m height without giving the body enough time to adjust to hypoxia and to produce enough red blood cells in size. The best way to cope with altitude sickness is to identify signs of disease development and descend to an altitude that feel good to your body will adapt. In case you want to use medication, medication can be taken before or during the initial development of altitude sickness to help in the growth process, but be aware that many pharmaceuticals go under the f can be unwanted side effects. In extreme emergencies you can use portable oxygen tanks or rescue helicopter evacuated (although you cannot rely on it because availability/weather etc).

A number of articles on the subject:
1) altitude sickness at Wikipedia
2) a detailed explanation about the disease and coping GOTRAVEL website
3) additional explanations in English: 10 rules for good growth

To avoid altitude sickness: (from my experience and the experience of others that talked)
1) be checked before traveling to Nepal and to ensure that there are no special sensitivity. If you need to take a lot longer than normal to process of adjustment.
2) to build a program that walk that doesn't cost more than 300 to 500 metres between one location to another.
3) to rise during the day as much as possible and stay in height as long as possible before going down.
4) do aklimizatia days/3500 and 4500 heights in meters. The amount of the climate-adaptation days depends on the initial level from start to go, but great if you reach a height of 4500 in less than 8 days then you should do at least 2 days of altitude acclimatization.
5) drink plenty of fluids. As a rule for every 1000 pounds should drink 1 liter of fluid that is 5000 meters tall need at least about 5 liters per day.
6) Eating/drinking lots, ginger in the form of soups, dishes.
7) eating and regular way throughout the day.
8) sleep enough hours at night (around 8-9).
9) Note the preliminary signs of altitude sickness as soon as possible: headache, loss of appetite, fatigue, inability to sleep, nausea and vomiting.

Difficulty level:
The route runs mostly on the ground not that doesn't require technical skill although there are several boulders fields, many different tile steps and transitions high but relatively wide. When there is rain, snow, take
Into account that everything becomes smooth and dangerous plan to walk accordingly. In recent years, more snow than usual or snowstorm suddenly need to take into account extreme cold and much slower in deep snow, ice and consider carrying crampons (of ikrospiks) and have basic skills in walking on snow. That's why every day nearly 1 km increases/decreases are needed for basic fitness is great even if you are planning to take because of difficulty walking Porter at high altitudes with thin oxygen.

Wildlife on the runway:
Although the entrance to SAGARMATHA (Mt. Everest) a sign that shows that there are many different wild animals in the reserve, after clarification with the guards and locals that can only see Himalayan yak, goat and, very rare cases Snow Leopard.
I went to see wild goats and yaks cities only in one place above and I got NAMACHE take pictures of Snow Leopard (according to local fire) the day after the snow storm.
* Some claim that can be seen in very rare cases, bears and Red Pandas in the Woods but locals claim the other.

Special notes:
* It is very important to make appropriate travel insurance to ensure that where detection and rescue clause and is not restricted to a certain height.
* It is recommended to do the vaccinations required about a month and a half before the flight by personal recommendations of Rupa at.
* Recommended high sensitivity inspection Sciences before flight reservation (free of charge).
* It is advisable to book a domestic flight and locla in busy periods especially for mid-October to late November assuming and don't want to spend days waiting.
* Many flights to/from locla cancelled because of weather problems and other delays and therefore better to leave enough days.
* When booking a flight back to Kathmandu locla recommended at least three days before the international flight because of delays/cancellations.
* It is advisable to take from the Earth: water purification filter chemical or chlorine tablets, iodine, km 2-degrees hot around COMFORT at least, balls that help high growth, digestive problems, waterproof warm bottle like NALGENE to boiled water guesthouses and walking in snow or GATERS.
* Basic crampons should you buy/rent in NAMACHE depending on the weather and snow.
* If you want to buy quality, not k., so you can rent in NAMACHE.
* In most small villages only accept and rupee exchange money in Kathmandu/נמאצ'ה.
* Snow brings sunshine also below from all angles and therefore full coverage out there, nothing would have put sunscreen against the Sun when going over 5 minutes on the snow.
* One of the main problems in walking on snow thawing that euphoria created beneath it because heat and water flow stones and Earth and you can see them. Even if people have moved there before us was another compromise and break and enter. It is important to note that each step, especially around rocks, streams and convey the full weight without minimal inspection.
* Big snow krachi mornings, by noon it becomes hard and wet, smooth and quick afternoon when Sun and icy and hard.
* We strongly recommend that you take a lipstick (or two) who are also against sunlight and begin to use the lips already beginning to never reach the status of cracked lips due to wind, cold, Sun.
* To explore in «EBC is necessary to get 2, the TIMS MONJO town. when required 2 passport photos. The PERMIT should get it SAGARMATHA park entrance after MONJO.
You don't want to miss, because the spending stops below there are several army checkpoints and are not going to move forward and have to go back and get the certificates as required.
* A country is also at least 2 rolls of toilet paper for the track that the quality of the local toilet paper is very bad.
* To clear the way for porters and should definitely give convoys of donkeys and yaks pass when going from the inner side of the trail (on the cliff). You can stay close to convoys of donkeys/mules but advised not to approach the yaks that they can certainly hurt with the rays without notice.
* In the light of what I've seen and read about public transportation in Nepal, do not recommend public buses when you see that the bus is packed and people sitting on the roofs of fear associated with safety problems. In such cases it is better not to save and buy a jeep to the desired destination.

Distribution as I did:

I arrived in Kathmandu to mombi flight around noon of 2.10 and after I finished my bag all the administrative procedures at the airport, drove a taxi to THAMEL (approximately 20 minute drive) to a branch of pliaist ordered their tickets.
The original plan was to meet up with AVI (riding a motorcycle from India) in Kathmandu and travel together by bus to JIRI, but contact with my father was interrupted and didn't know if he can reach final at all or on time. Because of the limited amount of days, Israel two weeks before the flight, trying to determine whether buses the next day (3.10) from Kathmandu to JIRI from several different agencies (pliaist, sioush red/yellow) and no one could say for certain, and some even claimed that the bus might not be included because part of the road was destroyed in heavy rains.
In practice, it turns out, there is a Festival lasts about 4 days on 03-06.10, and therefore were not available until the bus 07.10. The only option I have left is flying directly to 03.10 locla on early morning flights and opening had to be delivered as quickly as possible until 5 pm before closing the agencies. There was no contact with father (he had no active mobile number) and got a decision to make a reservation for a flight. Later I bought a map of the area and a few other little things that were missing and jumped several times a pliaist to connect to WIFI and see messages.
In the evening my father nevertheless managed to reach Kathmandu and send a message when it came to 133. After we met, my father announced that he wants to continue driving to the trailhead in motorcycle (rather than get on a plane) and already it was too late to cancel my flight (it was possible to do this morning, but at a cost of approximately $ 50) so we sat on the map and we arranged to meet for three days in the town of NUNTALA in the town centre when I go two and a half in the opposite direction (towards JIRI) and dad gets in a day and a half of town and SALLERI there within a day to NUNTALA. To my father took two days to reach SALLERI when most of the road mess with many lines and many other ptawth not recommended at all (by father) to go.

Day 1:03.10.2014
Track: LUKLA to near PUIYAN
Distance: 13.5 km
Starting height: 2800/2850 and Sophie m.

Time: approximately 6 hours.
Accommodation: small lodge named SONAM approximately 3 km from PUIYAN stunning views to 15. There are no other options.
Conditions: internal services, without bathroom, 4 double rooms with room in between, dormitori a small restaurant.

Early in the morning we went together with my father on his motorcycle to the airport in Kathmandu and already at the beginning, which was supposed to be short and simple, to become experientially especially strict safety rules in Nepal and dorsal ride I want and how I want "on the roads, if you can call them that in light of their relatively low even in the capital. Drive approximately 5 km in the city lasted about 25 minutes and thus learned quickly that horn could definitely replace driving lights and other laws. Internal airport adjacent to the airport, but international seems more neglected and yet the safety, aircraft maintenance and the rest all that was related to flight seemed pretty serious and probably because regulatory quality. My dad and I waited for flight delay to locla forward The planes look pretty small on the outside but are starting to understand the concerns of the people flying them until you walk in and see that even a gentle breeze can move it away. It is not clear why, but even small planes have the stewardess that candy and earplugs. Luckily the weather was ideal and aside from one jump due to air channel, which lasted approximately 20 minutes flight was perfect including the landing landing pad (one of the shortest ever) of about 150-200 meters in a positive angle on top so the gravity stops the plane (and if not then the wall next to the parking). I picked up the bag and quickly after a short walk around the town, the army of the details of the planned route and a fast network, around 10 am I. I started down the road to the right houses the airport toward SURKE and already the first started feeling slight pressure in the back of the head because the landing at 2900 m without acclimatization before. The decline has not been easy at all because knees to walk on the stones and lasted approximately 3.5 km with about 600 m downhill to the junction with the main trail that goes from JIRI. From there I went towards NUNTALA and after about 1 km. arrived in the small town where one SURKE old bridges where the donkey convoys, apparently unable to move and therefore had to go through. The rest of the way was a 500 metre steep for about 2 miles then much smaller declines for UPS, 3 km to the small town of Puiyan on Ridge. From there I continued for about 4 km until 4 pm and then I decided to look for a place to sleep. I found a little family that sits in one of the most beautiful places in the area with two valleys and about 15 different peaks (in the caption). I was the only guest and so I had all the second floor and preferential treatment from mistress. After lunch of Dhal soup any Bat, stuffed, went to bed when the pressure ease your head almost stopped.

Day 2:04.10.2014
Track: near to NUNTALA PUIYAN
Distance: 14.5 km
Initial height/2800 and 2200 meters final.
Height difference from previous accommodation: 600 meters.
Incremental changes height: 1700 m and 1100 m decreases.
Highest point/2750 and 1500 meters: low.
Time: approx. 7 hours.

I woke up early in the morning without a headache for ease of yesterday and after a simple breakfast of Tibetan bread with honey, the day began with stunning views over valleys and moderate of 350 feet over approximately 3.5 km towards the small town of BUPSA when passing through several suspension bridges and more small town named KHARTE. BUPSA GOMPA monastery in there prominently visible but not particularly interesting. Further heightening the approximately 300 feet over about 3 km past the Township continues to the next named KHARIKOLA. On the trail began to appear more and more severe and convoys for the first time and also saw porters driving huge weights on their backs with no forehead support as usual but with a long stick on his shoulder and both sides large metal baskets wrapped with networking. In KHARIKOLA there is a beautiful monastery that overlooks the village from above. He later begins a steep decrease of approximately 450 meters over 2.8 km to the drab little town JUBING when childbirth because of its low (around 1650 meters) has a green terraces of tumors that spread all over the mountain to the River about 1 km down the road that runs at an altitude of approximately 1500 meters. The people in the region live in contrast to all other RAI also Buddhists and Hindus and dealing mostly in crops and agriculture. However probably due to season, weren't too many fruits/vegetables for sale except for apples and bananas. From there begins a relatively steep for approximately 700 meters to 4 km to the town of NUNTALA where we agreed to meet. I arrived relatively early and town after a hot shower and laundry, sitting with 2 people in the hotel (Slovak) in the dining room. They said they started the path from JIRI and rainy days later kidnapped, the weather changed for the better and so is the atmosphere. Apparently the Slovak girl required to pay approximately 2000 rupees on entering other reserve is in JIRI which go about an hour and a half, and in contrast, the German missed. Later in the evening after seeing my father hasn't arrived, sat on the map and decided to do a circular day trip and go towards to the bar.

After a typical breakfast of porridge with Apple, I started walking toward the bar where TAKSINDU LA is the town of TAKSINDU colour when the trail lasts approximately 4 miles with a relatively steep increase of about 800 metres. In the village there are restaurants and lodging and additional 100 m climb as far from broadband superb for the Valley. Below there are significant to me about 1.5 miles of forest with about 200 m to town and RINGMU for splits into two directions: JIRI and SALLERI should come from my father. I sat in the restaurant at the top of the town with a relatively long period of time and when I saw my father hasn't arrived, picked up his things and began to go back at the same path when he was planning to go to a CHEESE FACTORY that appears in the new map was. The split would be pretty close to town and although I found it, the trail was narrow, and began to climb steeply through Bush apparently didn't go where many people lately. After half an hour of tberbrot, I decided to give up the idea and went back to the main trail. In retrospect it became clear after a few days from traveling since the plant does exist, but not particularly popular and therefore for pretty neglected. This afternoon I returned to town, and this time NUNTALA I chose the hotel because it was close to the town centre and remote information where we agreed to meet. The chance to meet was pretty low, because my father wasn't an active telephone line and WIFI in the village and was therefore particularly glad an hour later when I heard shouting with a familiar voice across the "Eli" and I knew that my dad came in. After organizing a Hookah, father said that the road to sucked and SALLERI took him two days to get there and the bike just fell apart at the end so that it was necessary to repair it so he left for a local company money to fix it until he returns from the trip and continued on his way.

After crossing the bridge begins a steep 600-foot length of approximately 2.5 miles to the big town in the area called NAMCHE. While the increase met travel very experienced English and interesting turns came to Mt.

Most of the day walking along the River at relatively moderate when we passed the small town MILLINGO and then after crossing the river and a short ascent reached the bottom of a relatively large town called PANGBOCHE and because we were going to stay, we continued on our way without having to go upstairs and stopped at the end of the town of elevenses. During the dinner, talked with French promenade named Florence walking alone and after that she plans to go the same route as us, we offered her to join us. The same day she planned to go to AMADABLAM and observation we planned to visit the town of PHERICHE and so we arranged to meet at the lodge named SNOW (appears in the book) and then each DINGBOCHE town went away. We continued to make progress when we passed through small towns, CHEJUNGM and ORSHO SHOMARE where my dad decided to go directly to the end of the day because I didn't feel good when I continued to walk towards PHERICHE. This town hosts special lectures every day (for free) at the local hospital by experts about the problems and ways of handling them, and you can consult them individually, too.

Early met with Florence and started to walk towards CHUKHUNG when moderate relative to length of about 5 km with 400 meters and follow the IMJA KHOLA River name. We arrived very early target at about 8:30 we left the heavy lifting and unnecessary and after breakfast we went toward the CHUKHUNG Lakes. After nine days of walking trails are wide and clear, I had a desire to go a little less space and more tole and therefore led the company to the left of the usual route for the crater. The hike was harder than normal, but certainly rewarding views, glaciers and small agmonim discovered. At one point we saw that if we continue in this way, so we can get to a destination that is the largest lake at a height of 5000 meters and therefore cut back to normal and then we reached the destination. The largest lake is white/grey was pretty normal and pretty even when gray actually hand over the find small Blue Lake.
The place was a team geologists to explore big lake in terms of the impact of global warming. They claimed that in recent years the Lake has grown on average about 70 meters in a year and fear that at some point it could flood the Valley again as it did decades ago. They complained that the Lake freezes more than usual in the mornings and it hits them in their measurements and therefore takes longer than you expect (I wonder how the big Blizzard that started the next day affected them because we haven't seen them). After rest and lunch we started walking for the usual back (a 5.5 km to the town) and at some point missed the only bridge where the river is relatively narrow (about two feet thick). Map in about 1.5 km walking trail parallel to the stream and decided instead to find the bridge, continue along the River to across stones or another bridge. The stream looks completely innocent turned out to be especially stubborn and despite the lower deep (t m) led water quickly enough and subsequently kicked out of the way most of the stones that could be used for safe passage. Eventually, after about 2 km walk along and after not finding a reasonable and saw no longer provide back to the bridge, and we have to cross the river. Find the safest spot in which small stones and in control and although I passed safely and Florence stayed with shoes (got wet of course) for fear of stones and strong flow and my father decided to download. Luckily it was a short distance to town and frozen legs of three after the freezing very hot oven expected of the dining room, so that after the transition really ran the hotel in approximately 40 minutes. While sitting in the dining room, I saw a few people go out and shoot something and curiosity for me to see one of the most beautiful sunrises I've seen in the mountains.
I called my father and Florence and all people including locals haven't stopped to admire and photograph the peculiar phenomenon occurred later, probably was related to the storm that the next day.

Early in the day, unlike other days, were pretty dark clouds high in the sky and in the morning anymore, but for 9 a.m. are dispersed (I think it was a sign of things to come). Florence and father decided to rest and I wanted to go up to CHUKHUNG RI day trip and so I took my time and went to look for her. So it turned out for the first time how the map was not accurate. The route map appears as a mile west of town when he started acting a bit East and hence wasted half an hour of walking in the wrong direction until I realized that there is a chance that begins where because of the topography of the mountains. About 500 meters and then returned without knowing exactly where the route passes, I get way more directly as a result of one of the local porters. It turned out that it wasn't the main trail, and although the steep ascent the scenery started to unfold away was worth the effort. The steep lasted for about 2 km with about 600 meters and the length I saw more and more clouds enter the valleys and climb up. At some point connected to the right path and reached an altitude of approximately 5300 clouds began to turn gray and white to medium wind began to blow. I checked the pressure and barometric pressures when he dropped significantly from this morning, I realized the welcome air is going to change very soon, and decided not to climb the last 200 meters up to the observation deck and down as quickly as possible. About half the decline began to drop snowflakes and when I got to the hotel that started strong and of fifteen-minute Earth encased in snow. Everyone sat in the heated room and other travelers in the morning and still haven't come back. Hours after dark, one leading to practice climbing with guide back in exhaustion and told how stuck after begin snow and then went back to slow rate. During the evening we sat playing cards with Malaysian and TOM THOMAS and exchanged experiences on walking so far each one funny story.

We got up in the morning for a special appearance in relation to the first week of the trip, when the entire Earth was covered in snow and restaurant kitchen amounts collected on roofs. While waiting for breakfast, my father decided I, Thomas to do kind of snowman to amuse ourselves and others, and of course they all quickly joined the celebration. Then we tried to find out the weather, but there was no cell connection, and thus lines decided not KONGMA LA bar and did not wait for the weather to calm down, because we didn't know how many days will the storm and what are the conditions on. The targnano and started to walk towards the Central Valley back to DINGBOCHE town when the hike was about 4.5 miles in 400 meters under snow drop easy. In town we stopped for breakfast, and although there wasn't, people said they were going to storm strength until then supposed to end by tomorrow morning. We decided that if the weather is going to be better tomorrow then you should proceed to the «EBC and simply see what would be the situation where instead of waiting and so despite the relatively heavy fog and snow, we started moving toward the town of DUKLA in significant increase of approximately 4.5 km with about 300 meters. The small town is after the crossing of the river. Everything seems frozen in there but we saw several large service advances toward LOBUCHE and proceeded to go after them. Her first name, but a steep 3 km with about 350 meters towards LOBUCHE when precipitation continues to decline each time. We arrived around 2 pm and target despite the warnings of the guide book, we found the place quite easily. In retrospect, it appears that many organized groups and especially from NAMACHE forms to be avoided through the Valley after the storm began and decided to wait a few days to see what happens. After settlement, we bask in the dining room and watch snow Rabbi now began to overcome.

After a night of heavy medium snow this morning started in sky blue and clean when we started, everything was covered in snow. Because we went around 7:30 a.m. late relative, porters and visitors already there by first walking trail is pretty clear so we could follow them very carefully because of the ice. The increase to 4.5 km GORAKSHEP lasted about 300 feet and although planning was to leave unnecessary items and go to EVEREST BASE CAMP, we saw air very welcome and we are confident that it will remain so for the next day and therefore we have decided to eventually replace days of observation and KALAPATTHAR. Although the rise was quite a short 1.5 km with about 450 feet, but because of the height (5600 m) and the snow proved to be an easy task even in prison in the 50 last meters after every few steps needed to breathe fresh air. The view from the observation was found particularly in all directions because of the blue sky today. See the peak of Everest, the type and location of the second and third camp as one of the guides explained. After meeting for about an hour in, we started to go to town after the clouds started to slowly rise from the Valley and see a very ruined. I saw Tom the way is difficult and advised him to try the next day because of poor visibility. Surprisingly services opened just after 6 pm in the evening and there were strange style services chemical toilets in the outside source. Night repeated the rite shoe drying around the fireplace and the sunset was beautiful than usual because of the altitude.

Breakfast and checking that in October there is almost no tents and «EBC forms because of weather problems and strong winds and therefore decided to go just me and Florence to the viewpoint of the «EBC and the tents themselves when my father wanted to go all the way and so we arranged to meet at the end of the day in the town of DZONGLA and separated. We walked for about 1.5 km in accumulated ice and that sufficient and then us and Greece went back to the hotel to collect the remaining items and continue on their way. We went pretty fast to LOBUCHE in the same way the previous day and after about 1 km before crossing the River, the trail turned southwest and started to climb at some point and headed west toward Lake THOLATSE CHO emerged as a very special because of its shape and location. Throughout the walk dad through marks left the snow and found out he had seen only one of them. After about 4 km DZONGLA and we took the time that was left in the Sun to wash clothes and take a shower. After two hours, my father came and surprised us by not showing in the tents at «EBC (turns out in retrospect that he did not come until the end) and forgot one stops the map I gave him and gets in a lot although practice was waaaay easy map.

After two days of Sun, knowing that you can cross the bar (which is considered the most difficult of the three) named CHO LA without special problems with the snow that fell during the storm and thus the early morning and began the steep climb to about 3.5 km with about 600 m towards the bar. The high growth in the past few days did hers and felt a special difficulty to get the foot bar and already prior to 10:00 a.m. we were upstairs and the deep especially bajorans two valleys away. We climbed a bit to get comfortable vantage point and we sat down to eat and rest. After about an hour, we continued our way towards the other side then turned the extreme decline wasn't easy at all because of the angle and the snow accumulated and therefore got better in terms of time and made the descent while most comfortable and safety possible without crampons (after the ice melted, but still no snow too soft). The decline continued in total 4.5 miles with 750 m, but the first 500 meters in length fell about 250 meters very steep angle and so it took quite some time. At the end of a long descent begins that glacier had to cross safely and you better follow the trail especially when everything is covered in snow because of cracks and holes. The crossing of the glacier was approximately 2.5 km along when then started rising about 100 metres to the town located near the GOKYO Lake III (according to local numbering) named DUDH POKHARI. We found a place at the big lake and organizing, we sat down with all the heated room to dry your shoes and to plan the next days. Instead there was a group of 4 (USA, Israel, Austria, and the Channel Islands) with whom we exchanged experiences in a card game. It turned out that Florence, Yair and the end of Channel Islands planned after treks to climb the PEAK and thus the ISLE changed details so they can meet and work together (which did happen after two weeks).

At breakfast we decided to go today to the gokyo Lakes of stay cost if so time to therefore GOKIO RI went early. Already from the beginning was a visible difference between the f major trails in the snow/ice accumulated on the trail. It turns out that very few people went to the lakes in these snowy days so the walk was difficult and multiple times when we lost the trail and tried to create one of our own, we had to fight through the snow is relatively deep (approximately 30-50 cm) was still on the ground. The Lake (IV by the local numbering) we came pretty quickly after a 2.5 km walk moderate 100 yards and he's been pretty standard and therefore moved to quickly view and continued to walk in the deep snow towards the Lake. The walk lasted for approximately 3.5 km away with about 200 yards long walking on it as of this morning we didn't see other hikers on the trail. When we approached the Lake, seen from the promenade sits next to the Lake and what a surprise it was to find out that we are familiar with the country and occasionally in different groups. I knew going into this meat date track a little different than mine, but the chance of meeting like this in the middle of nowhere was zero. We exchanged experiences and we arranged to meet tomorrow morning on the road band (because meat said it would take her longer to rise and were in different hotels) and broke up when we went to the Lake and was heading back to town. The Lake turned out to be especially transparent blue water and large rocks scattered everywhere. While I sat by the Lake and ate lunch, started to get heavy clouds from the Valley and therefore we have decided to give up the lake view and walk Friday (receives altogether anyway and no clear path) the increase to GOKYO RI. We started back toward the town and saw a group of four Israelis headed toward the fourth Lake (recommended to return and continue previous experience with clouds). During the walk, I saw and took several tracks that looked like tracks Snow Leopard and after I showed them to local guides at they said it is very similar and other animals in an environment that can leave a trail like this when the owner started to tell that she saw several days ago after a big storm Snow Leopard strolling in front of the hotel. About 15 minutes before arrival started snowing easy and when we got to the hotel it has been strengthened and became. That evening we check the forecast and owners after the Internet came back he could see that this was something relatively short, but more snow was expected more serious also. Although we wanted to stay an extra day in town and next to GOKYO RI, but figured the days left and I figured better to risk bad weather two days because we won't be able to get PASS plug RENJO bar and we've determined that if the snow stops within hours so go next if bar last all night so I can get down through the Valley and the company remain because they had plenty of time.

The snow started at noon the previous day stopped after 2 hours and so after consulting with local guides, we decided to go to LA and RENJO bar away to the other side. Initially in the first 2 km ascent was pretty moderate with about 200 m and then during the mile the rise continued with approximately 450 feet rapidly and this is particularly noticeable for the band approach and relatively deep snow. Half an hour before the band met Vicky and then continued to go up together to bar when my father was delayed. Surprisingly few people, who came from, and when we arrived we were bar between individuals there. After half an hour of rest, start to get large groups with porters and yaks. It was a pretty interesting to see how the yaks are faced with walking on snow. At the same time had also tried to lift one baby carriers of Porter and must say that it's not easy to carry that in General and especially in the terrain they have snow passes. After resting in stunning views, view ancient glaciers and agmonim in different colors, my dad came and we started moving bar in steep decline. The steep decline continued for approximately 1.5 km with about 350 meters and then for about 5.5 km and was pretty comfortable walking in Wadi at the snowy and was both open and so we knew that we are starting down a snow-covered areas. In one corner we have seen English delegation decided to stay the night before her band and sleep in tents. We arrived in town and LUNGDHEN at the entrance saw small family-run hotel and decided to stay with him overnight for diversity. The small hotel had 3 double rooms, a small kitchen and a living room and dining room that a brother and sister whose parents left for Kathmandu. In the evening after dinner, we joined a friend of brother turned out to be a monk who fled Tibet and cannot return there because the Chinese regime in place.

After long days of walking, we decided to do a short day so we started relatively late.

After crossing the river and walking about 3 km we arrived at a town called HUNGMO which led to a small and mysterious Monastery named KYAROGUMBA that decided to visit after check in. Unfortunately, the monastery was closed so we went away back to the original path and continued along the River to THAMETANG town where we stopped for lunch, too. In Florence talked about one of the biggest monasteries in the area above the town of THAME and joint decision began to rise towards the mountains towards the monastery and after 1.5 km with an increase of approximately 200 meters reached huge compound with houses, a school and a convent with a stunning view to the entire Valley. After turning the convent, monastery visits and conversations with local monks, we found a restaurant rented rooms and decided to stay until tomorrow. Evening meal time we saw an interesting phenomenon when cows came to the door of the restaurant and waited for them if one by one in the order. Then wintered with the landlady's daughter who knew little English and learned to play the familiar Yaniv, but unfortunately never learned how to manipulate the right oven so pretty we all suffered smoke coming in till-hazikaron-.

At breakfast we saw the amazing Sunrise behind the mountains, then sat on the map and decided to split up and meet at NAMACHE at the end of the day that the company wanted to go directly to the shortest way and I wanted to do a long walk. I was going to get for me a goat seen on the map in the direction of KHUNDE and down the other side to NAMACHE. In the first 7 km moved for the time when most centers the foot was on her way to the River with beautiful paintings on the walls, bridges problematic places and several small towns named SAMDE, THESO way and stopped to name SAMSHING elevenses. While alone checked the map and I thought I found the exact location of the goats, but I started to get rather unclear over the flags and approximately 300 m it found something that looks like a very old goats. I went along on the cliff for about 1.5 miles until we found a connection to another for it to Wadi steep way. According to the vegetation was clearly not much (if any) go on the f and the breathtaking view from there was to the Valley and along with perfect weather today has become one of the special track. All searches take longer than I thought and so when eventually reached SYANGBOCHE decided not to go to the bar but KHUNDE down directly to NAMACHE. Shortly after noon, I arrived at the hotel where we agreed to meet and the company plan to go eat. It turns out that they took their time and arrived just an hour before and after the Organization decided to go eat. After lunch everyone scattered engagements and tonight we went to the local bar for a beer and celebrate the end of the runway when Florence was planning to return to the mountains to join the delegation to one of low peaks and father and had planned to continue Alliance with me another day to locla and SALLERI to collect his father's bike.

It was clear that the day was going to be long and hard and so relatively early in the morning after the dinner broke up from Florence and we were off. The hike up to CHEPLUNG was more or less the same way as described in the sixth day of the trip, only to reverse and the only difference was after the descent from NAMACHE bridge crosses the river where we decided to go to the river and as we went from first to top. What really jumped out to such a huge quantity of large groups who went before us towards the mountains so we missed the peak load for us in a few days. On the way we met also 2 father's friendship and their accumulated knowledge and experience. When we got to CHEPLUNG, we found her to be easily moved and locla there quickly. We arrived around 4 pm and locla after we found the domestic agencies spread on main street, I made my flight the next day and Sarit cancels her flight a few days later before you can continue. We found a nice little hotel in the center of town and then my father went to stock up on fresh fruits, vegetables in the market to continue to track SALLERI. The day ended with dinner at the hotel during card games and rest.

Days 21-23:23 — 25.10.2014 — on the way to Kathmandu and ending the trip.
Early in the morning we got up and went after a short org to eat breakfast. Then I broke up with my dad and Vicky and walked towards the small airfield and was quite interesting to see the small planes take off and land at an airport where four places only. There were a total of 2 types of aircraft with a single engine to about 8 people with 2 motors for about 14 people. After a long wait in line, and I nshklano and I got the number to the airline that flew (electronic calendar and therefore it is important to note the name and number of a group that the Organizer calls people by it). It turned out that there was a delay of about an hour from Kathmandu and then got on the plane and I saw how he took great skill with a maximum utilization of the airport route until the final meters. Last flight and after 25 minutes we were in Kathmandu. After the specie, took a taxi to THAMEL and went to a small hotel at the East end who recommended me for the price was reasonable (about $ 15 for two nights) with large room and shower with hot water. Fortunately it turned out that fell to a three-day Festival, where locals had all the streets with flowers and many different Street and selling sweet and special in different colors with minimal costs. After lunch, I went to a place called GARDEN OF DREAMS (cost of rupees 200) with live garden with many flowers, trees, plants from different countries and multiple seating/rest features upscale restaurants. The day ended after exploring the bustling THAMEL Yes different colors and participation by many festivities with locals who discussed singing and dancing in the street.
The next morning I went to DURBAR SQUARE at the southern end of the city and instead tell of various temples and makeshift market. Then went west through crossing the River towards the monkey temple called SWAYAMBHU famous with no type (365 steps) to the top when on the road meet the monkeys used to tourists and feel absolutely at home. The entrance to the upper part of this involves payment of rupees 200 and up has a number of temples and monasteries and several different extensions with STUMPA when some amount of monkeys far surpasses the amount of visitors. After visiting the area returned to THAMEL in another way to visit other places in town when I moved way too near the Royal Palace of Nepal's Government. In the evening I did another round in the THAMEL that rusty again in different colored lights and flowers everywhere to the back. On the morning of the last day, I decided to visit less known neighborhoods and therefore took the bag, I broke away and started walking East toward the airport through the ordinary neighborhoods that don't arrive. Needless to say, here see Kathmandu and not just true what appears in the area and unfortunately it is still a third world country. After a walk in the city reached PASHUPATITINATH Temple which is close to the airport with international a number of holy places for Hindus and also a place near the river which are burning the bodies of the dead according to the Hindu religion. Entering the place cost about 1000 rupees and also took place in a local directory (for a fee) to hear more about the local history and culture to get answers...

[Quote = oded; 582395] why bring toilet paper? Use the left hand bottle.

The idea was that if you have already decided to use toilet paper and water, so you should get arms from Israel that what is sold there (at least what I encountered) very inferior.

What a fun Tawil.

I WAD like this area and died.

I add a little story about TIMS and PERMIT.

I didn't buy any of the f in Kathmandu that told me that you can buy them on the track, MONJO and TIMS in PERMIT shortly after.

Just before I ran into a guy who investigate MONJO who wanted to sell TIMS. From the beginning he seemed weird or accuracy we What me hatrid that TIMS was printed on A4 paper. As I recall from previous visit in Nepal, so that kind of tells the small TIMS printed with linen. In addition he wanted 2500 rupees. I told him that TIMS should be 20 or roughly 2,000 rupees, he said Trinidad rose from yesterday ....:-)

After some debate, I am willing to pay but the 2100 wasn't guy ready to go. So I just turned around and continued walking. On the way as I don't like, but that Moses did. Was not very pleasant, that later were able to stop me. Also in the third, however, and a lot of corruption that is not the way to behave. I just really felt that slaves owners.

When I arrived at the entrance to the Park and got the PERMIT, I asked the guy at the register where I buy TIMS. He told me and I basically don't need him.

He believed that when I agiaha to test position should display the PERMIT and a passport. In this way moved all tests without any problem.

I don't suggest this is the right way, but, in my case it worked.

In response to skip past her kongama I could tell little about the transition. It is not easy at all, and gave him Fairbanks. Snow conditions were created, which was dangerous!

In 2009 when I did the track, the weather was more welcoming, and I walked my gast House in Chile to La Paz. The trail was not so clear, and dhanna me from guesthouse to showing me the right path.

In a way passed over two mountain climbers from chsikas I met in one of the villages on the way. My walk was slow with a very nice view, for which he gained height, several beautiful lakes, and the afternoon reached the final boarding pass. A steep zigzag that hama'apil at Summit.

Upstairs, about 5400 m above sea level, I felt headache began to overcome. I drank some water and crossed the Summit, only to discover that the decline of apas are very dangerous and steep.

This is basically about the abyss almost vertically from a few meters, followed by endless free and steep sharp boulders terminated (boulders).

The temptation to surf for asses to death crossed my mind but ruled that prison will. According to Lonely Planet's instruction, TREKKING IN THE NEPAL HIMALAYA, taken right on the cliff's edge to the place that seems like a good place to drop it. Actually, trail was not far away and was leading me lightly. But I missed it and I started browsing the ass (butt in Yiddish to difficult). Once stood and tried to descend the zigzag using a cane, and after a few steps, I was slipping and falling and flowing with the ass Department, trying again to zig zag repeatedly slipped. And so on. I ended up with torn pants, and a tiny tear in the backpack.

In short I got to bolderim and there I see that trail comes from the bolderim side also. I felt stupid and started to go inside the bolderim the way highlighted. All Boulder that licence directly from moving and then jumping quickly between three boulders in order not to fall and next move ... l Total interest from the top until the bolderim field took an hour. Here is a very steep decline but on normal. I stopped on the way to food (chapati with something seems) took sickness pill that the headache lasts.

In short, I came downstairs to the main Valley (where is lovoch) at 4:00 in the afternoon. Most of the width of the Valley by the glacier, and combo for climbing the mound on one side of the glacier, passing across the hatlolit glacier falls on the other side, straight to oboch.

I started to climb the mound, and I started walking, snow also falling. Sounds dramatic, but that's what happened. After 10 minutes I got the show went something like 100 feet. I turned around and I looked back and I haven't anything. Worse, the snow began to cover the path.

For those who don't know, walked into an iceberg no Bill can end up falling into one of the holes created where because of freezing and melting of ice. Which can result in death if the hole deep enough, or if the injury.

So I turned back and went down to the base of the Valley, where it started to climb.

To go back to La Paz was pretty stupid, so I went down the Valley, the general direction in which the glacier should end which should be called tocla thukla settlement point.

I went without a path, crossing water factions, snow all the time. The bolderim rocks disappeared underneath white and soft, and I'm going, and going and occasionally yelling hey or help and no and no season. BMX flashed through my mind I will end my life and language even Everest don't show. Another thought-build an igloo of stones and sleep all night.

Another thought, climbing onto the tee. So I started walking while ascending the hillock as soma in Aruba because I have no idea what's up and see right inside anything because of the snow.

Well, after a half-hour, the clearing, and I found myself on the mound of iceberg, and saw that the two mounds on both sides of the glacier are zooming toward it and somewhere below meet at a point next to Tibetan prayer flags hanging.

Shows that the big easy drip My jacket and white scarf of snowflakes and I started off to hatlolit, here are some portecim going on a trail of footprints shoes.

Snow has allowed me to get a little way without regard to rocks that snow flooded the ground soft velvety texture. Shouted Hallow Porter went towards oboch, and he didn't understand at all what you joy on my face.

Arrived towards darkness into the tocla scarf, shook the snow and went to shbchnisa guesthouse, has wet coats hangers and inside the fire burning and people sitting around.

«EBC, Renjo La – Gokyo, March-April 2015
At the end of March, I went with my family and old hiking partner, Abdul, for three pairs passim Everest. Ultimately, it was not possible to do the first two crossings (La kogama and La) due to snow load and risk of landslides and therefore became route «EBC + gokyo and beyond Marengo-La. To date two weeks before the Tour season on Everest, has proven itself in terms of the relative thinness of catwalk, but paid the price for snow amounts until the most hysterical trip looks like skiing. Two weeks after we got back, shook the ground and heavy disaster Nepal fell to the State. In some places we were people in rock and snow collapse and terrible destruction sown throughout the eastern half of the country. Therefore not published until now our story and now I want to keep it as concise and informative. People think it would take years to be able to go back and explore Nepal mountain routes. I disagree emphatically because local life depends entirely on foreign tourism and therefore they are to restore the long before turn to rebuilding towns and villages. I already in September the trekking tourism to Nepal resumes and find insurance companies that would be willing to take the risk for more expensive premium.

Trekking equipment
Low temperatures at altitudes of Everest Trek requiring visitors ensuring balance regarding thermal clothing. Most young people acquire in Chinese fake clothing Nepal sold everywhere. The equipment usually will do and respond to temperatures of minus a small likelihood without wind, but in extreme conditions, that may develop in the mountains, the equipment will not help you put in space travel and it will freeze to death or likely to suffer from frostbite. This is exactly what happened in October 2014 to dozens of travelers crossing the La torveng in Annapurna. Severe storm the area, with 100 mph winds quickly, lowers the temperature to minus 25 degrees and almost never leaves a chance for those who circulate outside the shelter. 27 hikers were killed including 3 Israelis and hundreds suffered wounds in varying degrees. I'm not saying that professional clothing would have saved those people who froze to death (some killed in avalanches collapse), but absolutely professional equipment gives chances for survival are much higher for coping with extreme conditions develop.

What to take
17th «EBC Trek, especially for 3 passim required 3 layers of clothing. That doesn't mean all the time required all layers, but they should be available. When we talk about 3 layers going to layer (Base layer) that clothing came in contact with the skin and tackles. Second layer (Insulating Layer) that provides extra thermal insulation and a third layer (Shell Layer) that protects from wind, rain and snow. Alpine routes usually takes two layers + fog coat or Cape. Almost no State (who in June-September) temperatures in the Alpine route, worth walking with 3 thermal layers. Not the case in the Everest, which, over 5000 m, almost always required 3 thermal layers. I don't want to review here the various options for thermal clothing because we have this equipment Forum and because participation in the market is really infinite. What I show here is just the equipment I used (Eran was slightly different equipment), with short notes for each item and specify its weight.

Note: professional equipment is expensive equipment, but those who purchase professional equipment during operations (Sales) can obtain considerable discounts.

I used equipment

Backpack: Granite Gear- Virga2  (Regular size, weight 540 g)-pod to lighter weights but has very low impervious to moisture.

Shoes: Crestbound Factor- Gore-Tex -leather shoes and warm. Excellent moisture resistance. Without lock (as Merl models).

Canes: Black Diamond's Carbon Distance Z -super light folding to minitora but without shock absorber and adjust the height.

A bag that is: Sea to summit SP II (464 g weight) taken that said need it Shep gork Not opened even once. The blankets were always

Liner: Sea to summit Reactor Thermolite (Weight 248 c) was useful at some times sheets or blankets were dirty but couldn't get along without him, too.

Sunglasses: Cebe Base Camp a great screening radiation conditions on snowy surfaces. Some heavy load on the nose bridge and used.

Torch head: Petzl Tikka (weighs 85 g) did the trick as Lapsang got ... to top of putter but Kala seems more popular Black Diamond lanterns in this trek.

Clothing layer (Base layer)

T-shirt: Top Long Sleeve Crewe Icebreaker (weight 260 g). Feel great on the body and warms. Doesn't smell even after few days ever without rinsing. Drying fast enough.

Upper tights: SmartWool NTS Mid 250 Crew (weight 250 g). There are not enough superlatives to describe how comfortable to sleep in tights. Caressing your body, warming and looks Smasher.

Bottom tights: SmartWool NTS 250 Mid -f

From: Sherpa Khumbu (weight 375 g). The namch Bazaar in the store brand. Great pants. Looks good, nice and warm. The arc temperature- 15 to+ 15 without another layer.

Layer clothing construction (Insulating Layer)

Thermal shirt: Marmot Thermo Hoody - (weight 453 g) technological marvel the best item that I got to wear warm and perfect, dries in seconds and never stinks.

Thermal pants: Western Mountaineering Flight Pants (weight 360 g). Serious keel. I took extreme conditions. Practice wearing mostly outside guesthouses 5000 m.

Third layer clothing (Shell Layer)

Jacket: Patagonia Ultralight Down Jacket - (weight 270 g) make a nice and easy, not warmed as expected.

Extra clothing

Socks: SmartWool PhD Outdoor Medium Crew X 2. Excellent warm well.

Socks: SmartWool Mountaineering Extra Heavy Crew X 1- very thick and greenhouses that just served to stay in hostels.

Gloves minutes: Lowe Alpine Power Stretch - was good for 90% off only really required heights more serious gloves

Thick gloves: Black Diamond Enforcer  - (Weight 248 g) gloves weren't too expensive.

Extreme gloves: Marmot 8000 meter Mitt   (Weight 360 g) a terrible mistake Kiel. $ 200. ones in Kathmandu for fear not justified

Ski mask: Mountain Hardwear Butter Balaclava . Served me a hat to cover your head and ears almost always rolled for a hat.


Total weight clothing and backpack: 4.5 kg and together with amenities, g.p.s. sequencer and various toppings I reached weight of 6 kg (with more pounds more equipment!).

Day 1-from Lukla to Monjo
Quite a long day (17.2 km) and not particularly interesting. Amounts of porters who carry equipment for Everest base camp. They get paid per kilo and thus carry the weights that can sink for the 100 kg chose to stay at 2800 m altitude Monjo instead of the standard stop order to Phakding village short term to make Bazaar and sleep much taller on the way. Unfortunately, still not installed on Internet Monjo could get updates from home. Most of the evening we spent in conversation with a young man who climbs Everest for the seventh time! He gave us a good height growth tips (drinking lots water. nonalcoholic above 4000 meters and cover thoroughly neck and ears). We have learned that it pays to climb Everest as a lender because for two and a half months is getting $ 4500-tremendous amount in local terms, allowing him to live out the rest of the year and cancelled still preserve a high standard of living.

Day 2-from Namche Bazaar to Monjo
Short day (6.7 km) of it. Not excited especially altitude difference of 700 m and suffered from exhaustion because of the height. The highlight of the short segment pair bridges hanging one over the other in height. Found in village with all amenities you could imagine. It is also a regular rest day for acclimatization.

Day 3-circular route via Khumjung
An easy day of acclimatization and fitness (8 km) from ring track are and passes through the village of komgong. The eastern part of the route.

Day 4-from Namche Bazaar to Pangboche
The fun started. Quite a long day (15 km). Just leave and get a panoramic effort on what is to come. Most easy walks a moderate rise. Through beautiful Tengboche monastery and continued to have a lot of options Pangboche accommodation at all levels.

Day 5- Pangboche to Ama Dablam BC and back.
Acclimatization walk day without equipment (9.4 km) The first axis and we climbed to camp would Emma dblam-one of the most impressive peaks. This walk is different from the arid desert landscape and with the increasingly tall receives. Nice day without seeing a few people.

Day 6- Pangboche to Dingboche
Short of an hour and a half day walk (6.2 miles). The plan was to climb on top of dingbota and cross the 5,000 meters high, but a Blizzard that had on our program and remained in the village.

Day 7-from Dingboche to Lobuche
Long but not difficult (8.7 km) Entering the big leagues first and begin to feel the altitude. To the village of easy walking Dughla the landscape spread like a postcard. The dogela starts her first time lurching left us short of breath. The rest of the walk to the light obota with wonderful views. The village itself is fairly primitive.

Day 8-from Lobuche To Gorak Shep and visiting «EBC
The half-height 5000 m snow snowy becomes more and more rarefied air. The village-like primitive gork Shep and obota (without equipment) to the camp of Everest would is quite challenging. Almost all the way back pass broken travelers trying to catch my breath. Many even turn around and give up. Read a smearing abyis Kemp views but have no clue what these people are talking about. This is definitely one of the highlights of the trip and the scenery is amazing!!

Day 9-from Gorak Shep to Dzonglha after climbing Lily Kala Pattar peak
The weather disrupted us the negative type of Calais, putter We started climbing at 4 am with flashlights in the cold of minus 15 and when we got to the top started snowing and we haven't seen anything. The increase is very steep at the top, and it was quite difficult to follow the central axis (there are lots of phantom trails on the way to the top). We went back to gork Shep for breakfast and continued from there to the village of 11.5 km from Dzonglha go to cholla bar crossing. The road to the village was full of snow and really digging into the snow. We reached an abandoned village and the announcement beyond Chula still closed and very dangerous to try to cross it first. Abdul did not hesitate and ordered a special helicopter expense that takes us beyond La Paz and Lands us in gokyo. This saved us 3 days were required to reach gokyo Valley Road.

Day 10- Dzonglha helicopter and climbing to Gokyo on Gokyo Ri
The chopper stabilized at 9 am and landed us in 10 minutes at Fitz Roy in gokyo. The weather was perfect and we went to gokyo peak climbing. All the way to the top was receives and sunk deep in the snow, which made the exhausting climb. When we got to the top of the clouds are again starting to snow. Consecutive days of snow on the high peaks were dose of misfortune. Reluctantly left the Summit without seeing anything and glided through the snow to the bottom of the mountain. The time differentials were impressive. We have two and went in 20 minutes.

Day 11-visit Lake of Gokyo
This is a route that few give him time and he is one of the most impressive. The gokyo Lakes, the Lake has a total of 6 vi is 5200 m and 8 km from gokyo. We went only to the view of the Lake in 5000 m and 6 km from gokyo. All the way was completely receives. The scenery in the end piece is exceptional. A combination of great ice River with 8,000 + dimensions that wraps a point towards gokyo. That's certainly a point that must not be missed!

Day 12 – from Gokyo to Longden through Renjo La
A great day. Cold weather and perfect climbed to רנג'ו la passage height (5340 m). The entire timeline was covered in snow and everyone got himself a private road to the pass. It was dangerous and difficult but been around quite a few people being who applies for help in time of need. The way from vengden village to apas was clearer and less. Just did this 12 km in six hours.

Day 13- Longden back to Namche Bazaar
Quite a long day (18.5 miles) almost entirely moderate along the river. Sections of the route were shofim but no significant obstacle.
Nice to be back in namch after a sojourn in altitudes above 5000 m. Also returning in the sense of accomplishment and receive food and accommodation conditions in Arabic.

Day 14-from Namche Bazaar to Lukla airport and runway end
The way we did in the first two days, we're easily in one day. Thousands of tourists flowed us towards נמצ'ה, we demonstrated the meaning of peak load and justification for hundreds of guesthouses that were quite deserted during our visit. Exactly two weeks after we got back to the land of the trembling Earth and wiped out most hiking trails where we walked. Our heart is with the people of Nepal

Look under images and description of snow was inseparable from the trip over a certain height as me and eventually it caused ordinary grey valleys to look much more interesting and sharp.
Making correct decisions are not got two stripes in snow that all talks with local guides, most people lose their way, as in exactly these terms when there is poor visibility and plenty of snow.

Tilapia, thanks a lot.

Hope the question will be irrelevant soon – that is, anpalim will open the routes for hikers, and restore livelihoods for residents-the above requires hiring a guide?

By the way, amazing picture quality. I didn't think you can reach such quality on a mobile device.

The track does not have a manual but most take at least one that is cheap, even to give a livelihood to locals and especially so for the excess weight carried led.
I had all the track on g.p.s. sequencer and always felt very safe walking in the snow. Most would security porterim and follow guides that they think I know the way.
Excellent maps of the track (the post of) Grameen and other devices can be downloaded free online. Amazingly accurate map detail to highlight some of the bridges on the way to namch.
Smartphone photo quality surprised me. It's true that there's not much options photo, Flash, zoom and the sky becomes excessive blue, but other than that I really want.
It is the first trip I do without a camera.

Sony akspria z3. Waterproof and work with gloves.
As for the glove box. It was after 10% discount for cash. I bought something I didn't get to use it never.
On the trip I used these gloves only once at gokyo RI peak climbing and so it was.
If someone wants to buy them from me are for sale at 50% off

I'm pretty new here, and so far only when watching/reading

And while questions on topics that interests me (there is a lot of information to process before the questions),

But here I can contribute something.

Nepalese Tourism Ministry earlier this month issued a message in which they review the areas that you can explore. When they disqualified shbaicro, currently only trip in langetang and mnsallo, and the other can be organised.

The announcement by the Ministry of tourism

Given the message, explained that until the fall season are enough to fix the problems affected treks relatively easily (if they bother to stand behind their statement).

In addition to the Mustang and dolfo pramit went down to 100 dollars (500 had until recently). As regards the consequences of the recent earthquakes are no problem to travel there.

Day 12 – from Gokyo to Longden through Renjo La

A great day. Cold weather and perfect climbed to רנג'ו la passage height (5340 m). The entire timeline was covered in snow and everyone got himself a private road to the pass. It was dangerous and difficult but been around quite a few people being who applies for help in time of need.

We went down this road in 2011, she receives only half nonetheless warned against crevasses and the guidance was to go as far as possible follow guides/other travelers. I wonder why in a stay where the decision was actually everyone opens himself personal timeline? Also, I'm not sure that there are other people around helps those who fall into the abyss?
