I first used Unique Path Trekking services when I did Annapurna Sanctuary in April 2011. It was a very well planned and well managed exercise.
The professionalism based on true experience, ability to make right decisions quickly (especially when under stress), and getting prompt responses to your questions are the key factors which allow me to recommend Unique Path Trekking to anyone who considers doing trekking in Nepal.

Everest Gokyo Ri Trek - 14 Days

Trip Overview

This trek features the unbelievable scenery of the remote Gokyo Valley and its festival of beautiful turquoise lakes, moonscape-like glaciers, and stunning mountain vistas that include Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu - four of the eight highest peaks on earth! The 360-degree view from Gokyo Ridge is the best in the Khumbu!

The beginning of this trek is the same as hiking to Everest Base Camp. On the way, we'll stay two nights in the village of Namche Bazaar to acclimatize. Namche is considered the trading center for the Khumbu region, and people walk from as far away as Tibet every Saturday to sell their wares here. This is also the hub onto which each trail converges, so yaks and people compete for space in this amphitheater style city.

After visiting Namche, we’ll head up the valley leaving the usual Everest trail and following the rivers run off from the Ngozumpa glacier. After two days we will stop again in the village of Machhermo for another rest day and the chance to hike up Machhermo RI. Our Next stop will be the Gokyo Valley.

Your arrival into this high mountain valley called Gokyo is welcomed by a string of cobalt blue lakes that continue for the 3-hour hike to Gokyo Village, which sits at the foot of Gokyo Ri (18,300 ft) a huge black mound of rock and dirt. The next morning, you're invited to take the 3-hour hike to the summit of this black, rocky mound to witness the 360-degree Himalayan view offered only from this vantage point. The Himalayas stand like giants guarding the border into Tibet. From Gokyo Ri you'll see much more than Mount Everest -- there are magnificent views of many of the other 8000-meter peaks from here as well.

Trip Grading

X

Gokyo Ri Renjola Pass trek is suitable for any walker looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. It does not require you to be super fit or have any previous trekking/mountaineering experience. If you are healthy and can walk 5 to 6 hours daily, you can do this trekking. However, daily jugging or walking exercise is useful before you depart. Our program always include rest days and build up gradually, in order to acclimatize to the altitude. On trek, you can go at your own pace, with plenty of stops for resting.

Altitude Sickness

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is common at high altitudes sickness. In general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally in altitudes of over 3000 m. The symptoms of altitude sickness are due to lower air pressure at high altitudes, which results in lower oxygen levels as you breathe the air in. The air is under less pressure and this makes it harder for your body to get the oxygen out of the air and into the circulation. It's this extra strain on the body that causes altitude sickness.

Symptoms tend to be worse at night and include headache, dizziness, and lethargy, loss of appetite, nausea, breathlessness and irritability. Difficulty sleeping is another common symptom.
The major symptoms of altitude sickness

Initial symptoms

1. Periods of sleeplessness
2. Runny nose.
3. Extra tiredness
4. Occasional loss of appetite.
5. Feeling laziness
6. Wish to vomiting
7. Periodic breathing.

Above are normal symptoms which may occur into your body that you should not be worried. Every trekker will experience some or all of these, no matter how slowly they ascend.

Advance symptoms

1. Headache and vomiting
2. Dizziness.
3. Racing heartbeat
4. Exhaustion
5. Nausea
6. Diarrhoea
7. Loss of apatite
8. Weakness
9. Hard to breath
10. Extra tired
11. Dry Raspy cough
12. Sleeplessness

When above symptoms will occur into your body, these symptoms usually resolve by spending one or two extra nights at the same altitude or using medicine. Even you are resting at the same altitude or using medicine, if symptoms are becoming worse, then it is necessary to descend.

Serious Symptoms

1. Worsening headache and vomiting
2. Swelling of hands and face
3. Reduced urine output
4. Walking with a staggering gait
5. Confusion
6. Increased tiredness
7. Breathing irregularity
8. Visual hallucinations (seeing things that are not real)
9. Changes in the ability to think
10. Changes in normal behavior

If above serious symptoms will occur into your body, these extremely dangerous symptoms are called High Altitude Cerebral Edema (or HACE). They can lead to unconsciousness and death within 12 hours.

Increasing shortness of breath, cough and tiredness may also be signs of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema or HAPE. HAPE can also be rapidly fatal if ignored.

To prevent acute mountain sickness:

  • If possible, don't fly or drive to high altitude. Start below 3,000 metres (10,000 feet) and walk up.
  • If you do fly or drive, do not overexert yourself or move higher for the first 24 hours.
  • If you go above 3,000 metres (10,000 feet), only increase your altitude by 350 to 500 metres (1,000 feet) per day,
  • Climb high and sleep low! You can climb more than 300 to 500 metres in a day as long as you come back down and sleep at a lower altitude.
  • If you begin to show symptoms of moderate altitude sickness, don't go higher until symptoms decrease.
  • Drink plenty of water, tea or juice etc (at least three to 4 liters per day). Urine output should be copious and clear to pale yellow.
  • Eat high-carbohydrate foods (rice, pasta, cereal) for more energy.
  • Take it easy and don't overexert yourself when you first get up to altitude. But, light activity during the day is better than sleeping because respiration decreases during sleep, exacerbating the symptoms.
  • Avoid alcohol as it may increase the risk of dehydration, and don't smoke.
  • Don't push yourself when climbing up to passes, rather take plenty of breaks.
  • Avoid taking sleeping pills.
  • Avoid active movements and try to relax in the first one or two days upon arrival at the high altitude areas.
  • Bring adequate medicine.
  • If nothing else works, return to the areas with the lower elevation.
  • Allow sufficient time for acclimatization (After 3000 meters).
  • Don’t make rapid Ascent. Don’t go too far too fast.
  • Do not trek/travel alone, take guide/porter.
  • Follow the advice from your guide, hotel, local, guide book.
  • Descent if mild symptoms rapidly getting worse.
  • Never leave or descent sick person along.
  • Avoid getting cold.
  • Take an easy and comfortable trekking route even if its longer

Medicine:

Following is a list of items you should consider including in your medical kit - consult your pharmacist for brands available in your country.

  • Aspirin or paracetamol - for pain or fever
  • Antihistamine - for allergies, eg hay fever; to ease the itch from insect bites or stings; and to prevent motion sickness.
  • Antibiotics consider including these if you're traveling well off the beaten track' see your doctor, as they must be prescribed, and carry the prescription with you.
  • Loperamides or Diphenoxylate 'blockers' for diarrhea' Prochlorperazine or metaclopramide for nausea and vomiting.
  • Rehydration mixture to prevent dehydration, eg due to severe diarrhea; particularly important when traveling with children.
  • Insect repellent, sunscreen, lip balm and eye drops.
  • Calamine lotion, sting relief spray or aloe vera-to ease irritation from sunburn and insect bites or stings.
  • Antifungal cream or powder - for fungal skin infections and thrush.
  • Antiseptic, such as povidone-iodine for cuts and grazes.
  • Bandages, band-aids or plasters and other would dressings.
  • Scissors, tweezers and a thermometer (note that mercury thermometers are prohibited by airlines)
  • Cold and Flu tablets, throat lozenges and nasal decongestant.
  • Multivitamines - consider for long trips, when dietary vitamin intake may be inadequate.

Note :We have guides trained at the High Altitude Medical Training Center. Our staff is very experienced in dealing with the effects of higher altitudes. As they are natives of Nepal, they easily acclimatize and therefore can care for their clients. They are equipped with necessary medical supplies and will assist you with basic first aid treatment. We design our tours to ensure clients are ready for high altitude, and arrange alternative itineraries for those at risk
