Accommodations

We will be staying at 2/3 star hotel in Kathmandu, and in tea-houses during the trek. All rooms are on twin-shared basis. Single bedroom will be arranged on request and will cost additional. Utmost Adventure will arrange rooms with attached washrooms in Tibet; however, guesthouse at some places only has shared washing and toilet facilities. Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and in Tibet regions during the driving tour but while we are climbing there will be staying at tented camp.

Meals

In Kathmandu, breakfast will be available (On demand, we can arrange only breakfast during the driving tour and trekkers can order lunch and dinner individually from the tea-house menu). There will also be welcome and farewell dinners taking place for guests. While on tour, we have breakfast and dinner in the hotel / guesthouse where we spend the night and lunch on our way to next destination. All meals will be provided during climbing prepared by our cook at the camp. Authentic Nepalese, Tibetan and continental meals are common choices in the menu in Nepal and while travelling in Tibet and during climbing there will be limited choice.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Shishapangma Expedition is a very strenuous expedition. Climbers who can trek up to 7/8 hours a day on an uphill / downhill trail and vertical climbing in high altitude trail will find this expedition extremely fulfilling. It is best that we prepare ourselves for the Everest North Ridge Expedition by climbing, jogging and exercising regularly at least a few months prior to the start of the expedition. Climbing the Mt. Everest could be done by those who have experience in climbing/trekking in a high altitude environment. Past climbing, hiking experience would be an asset because technical skill (use of zoomer in rope, ice axe, crampon, etc) is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Utmost Adventure before booking the trek.

Best Time to Travel

The best time for expedition to Mt. Everest North Ridge is during spring (April to May). The temperature is moderate and guarantees amazing views throughout the trip. Although this expedition can be undertaken during autumn (September to October).
