Tent Peak Climbing difficulty & Altitude Sickness

Climbing Tent Peak is considered easy under proper guidance and support of professional Sherpa guides. The route to the summit is not difficult in terms of technical climbing, however surviving in a high altitude and bare minimum facility can be challenging. Therefore, you have to be in sound health and strong physical fitness. You do not need prior climbing experience to go on Tent Peak Climbing.

As the journey will take you above 5,000 meters from the sea level, you have to be careful with high altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is a high elevation illness that can affect the journey if it happens to you. Therefore, a well-planned Tent Peak Climbing itinerary is needed for successful climbing. The best thing to do to stay away from altitude sickness is to add ample rest days in the itinerary as well as keep yourself hydrated.

 

Best time to go on Tent Peak Climbing

Tent Peak Climbing is usually done in either spring or autumn. March to April and September to November fall under these two seasons. As the weather mostly remains stable with a mild climate, many climbers prefer this time of the year best for climbing in the Himalayas. Likewise, during spring, you can see many wild-flowers all over the trail, and in autumn, you will get to be part of different festivals.

 

Accommodation & Meals

Lodges are available in the village, whereas tents are used to spend the night during the climbing period. You will get a very basic service in the lodge. Rooms are small and twin-shared. Likewise, the washroom is mostly common. While climbing, you spend the night in tents. All the tents are carried by the crew members. We offer high-quality single sleeping tents to each member of the groups along with shared dining and toilet tents.

The package includes three meals a day- breakfast, lunch & dinner. All the meals will be served as per the menu of the lodge. You can expect to get home sort of food. Tibetan, Nepal, Indian, and Continental dishes are available on the menu. You will have a range of items to choose from. As the elevation will increase, the menu will get limited.

 

Communication & Electricity

You have to use a satellite phone to get connected with your family and other team members in the city or base camp during Tent Peak Climbing. Due to remote area and high altitude, the chances of getting cellular network and the wifi connection is almost impossible. There are few villages in the lower altitude where you can use the internet by paying a few bucks but again not very reliable.

Likewise, locals here are more dependent on solar electricity than hydropower. Charging your electric appliances can be possible at some lodges, however you might have to pay a few extra bucks for that. Therefore, make sure to carry extra pairs of batteries with you.

 

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is mandatory while Tent Peak Climbing. You have to take out travel insurance in your own country as foreigners are not allowed to get one in Nepal. Your insurance must cover air evacuation, medical bills, hospital bills, flight cancellation, and loss or theft of property. In case of emergency, travel insurance will be a very reliable for you to save your life. 

 

Guide & Porter

We provide you a government licensed and professional Sherpa climber who will take you to the summit of Tent Peak. Our guides are well-trained and certified to tackle difficult situations. They have numerous years of experience in the Himalayas and have mapped almost all the trails. Similarly, you will be accompanied by porters who will carry the baggage. Carrying loads are the main source of income for porters, therefore do not feel bad for them. We will make sure to pay them fairly for their hard work. 

 

Environmental Contribution

Trips to high altitudes can be extremely adventurous, but also can harm the fragile environment if not planned properly. Therefore, we take it a step further while planning our trips by making sure to add enough sustainable measures so that not a slightest part of nature gets harmed due to our presence. Likewise, our small organization helps to pay education expenses of the children from mountain families.
