Useful information

Activity Level rating of Pike Hill Trekking
A trekker or walker who is able to hike normally 5-6 hours per day carrying a light weight backpack will be fit enough to do this trekking. There are stone steps up and downs which are uneven and 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 the altitude related risks. To properly acclimatize one needs to walk slowly and drink more water.

Safe drinking water on Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trekking
Generally, you can find bottled water at lower altitude places but it gets harder to find it in higher elevation places and it gets more expensive. In those higher altitudes we recommend you drink previously boiled water which tea houses sell for a small fee. You can also bring chlorine tablets to purify your water if you wish. Due to lack of regulation on the discard of plastic bottles it is probably better to use boiled water, very helpful for the protection of our environment.

Recharging Batteries of Electronic Items on Pike Hill Trekking
Hydro electricity or solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like camera, batteries, iPod, phone 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 Pike Hill Trekking
In your trekking you might come across some beautiful and sweet children and you may want to distribute balloons, chocolates, money and pens as many trekkers have felt same. But it is best not to do so because it encourages them to beg. In the 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 in the way where dustbin facilities are not available and conserve the environment.

Spending Money per Day
It mainly depends upon spending habits, normally you should allocate US$ 9-12 per meal in Kathmandu and Pokhara. On trekking, US$ 10-15 a day is good enough to buy drinks and chocolates.

Travel Insurance for Pike Hill Trekking
You should be sufficiently protected and need to have travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, lost items, liabilities, injuries and medical treatment. Ensure the insurance covers all the activities in the Himalayas. Trekking Planner can offer the appropriate medical response based on your policy and insurance.

Washing and Toilet facilities for Pike Hill Trekking
All the guest houses offer hot showers, which can be in the bathroom or can be 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 or firewood for the ecological reason. Every lodge has some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. If the water froze then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water.
Toilets are mainly Asian squat style. Toilets are outside your room and it varies in how clean they are. You should not through toilet paper in the toilet hole rather you should use rubbish bin that is kept inside the toilet.

Tea Houses
On this trekking route local people have built tea house lodges with food and beverage facilities. A simple room usually has two narrow beds. While staying in the tea houses you will have the opportunity to interact with the charming local people and experience their hospitality.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is a change in a body due to high altitude, 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
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • tiredness/fatigue
  • Sleepy but can’t sleep

Prevention for this is to dress warmly as per weather conditions, drink and eat plenty, walk slowly and climb high sleep low. Keeping hydrated, but make sure you avoid alcohol.

FAQ's

Can you provide me more information about the tea houses on Pike Hill Trekking?
According to the location the tea houses vary on their quality and style on this trek. Basically they have communal room downstairs with one or two bed bedroom above them. You have to use share toilet and some have hot shower facilities but some will have stand pipe. Tea houses use a type of burning stove in main communal area and other room is unheated. Tea houses do not have money exchange facilities. We recommend you to exchange cash in Kathmandu.
At the lower altitudes there are electricity facilities whereas as we go higher tea houses become more basic. As cooler temperature drain battery life, ensure your batteries last a little longer by putting it inside pocket of your coat or under your pillow.

Do a guides or porter carry oxygen tanks on Pike Hill Trekking?
No, as there is enough time to acclimatize while trekking it felt there is no need for them. If someone feels the affects of altitude then there are facilities along the trek at various points and it’s easy to get.

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 and all the camping gear. One porter will carry two trekker’s baggage’s. A number of supporting staff will depend upon your group size.

At one time how many liter of water I have to carry in Pike Hill Trekking?
Mostly 3-4 liters is sufficient. You will be able to refill bottles at lunch time. When you are in high altitude you have to drink more water to get rid of altitude diseases.

Is it necessary to carry Trekking poles?
Yes, Trekking Poles make you easy to walk in the rough ways. Trekking poles makes your body and leg to move more safely. So, we suggest you to use it.

Is bottled water available everywhere in Pike Hill Trekking?
Mainly tea houses on the way have stores which sell bottled water and other supplies that may be needed for you on the trek. There are no any plastic recyclable facilities in Nepal, we encourage you to bring chlorine tablets and use filter water in the tea houses.

Should I have to bring iodine tablets for purifying the water?
You have to bring iodine tablet 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 streams in the trek.

What are the effects of going so high?
Altitude produces physical changes in the body. Higher you go, more pronounced those changes. If after gaining a lot of elevation in a hurry, you experience dizziness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration, you are probably suffering from altitude sickness. In rare cases this may worsen, so a close watch is kept on all trekkers by the Group Leader who is trained to recognize Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If trekkers 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 safe acclimatization.

What if I get ill while on Pike Hill 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 quiet until you can get medical help. You will carry down if no progress we advise travelers to take a personal kit too.
In serious cases, you need helicopter rescue. Our guide will suggest you to use it if its very serious. So, helicopter rescue insurance is necessary for every trekker before you come to trek in this trek.

Would you recommend taking a Down Jacket?
The weather is changeable in the Himalaya so you can expect to experience four seasons in one day. Make sure you have plenty of warm layers which you can shed or add as required. While even in winter it can be as warm as 19C during the day, the higher the altitude, the colder the temperature and when high up the temperature drops significantly at night to around -10C in October/November, and to around -20C from December to February.

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