Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness height min

It is the major problem and the difficult situation in the mountainous region. The atmospheric pressure and the oxygen is lower than the sea level in the higher altitude location.With the thinner level of oxygen and the high altitude, it will take time to adjust to the surrounding environment at such high altitude. During the altitude sickness, you may get symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, headache, loss of appetite, insomnia and other. High altitude can be moderate for some trekkers but it can be serious for others.  you find some symptoms of altitude sickness while making the adventure hike, you should immediately return back to a lower altitude region. Do not ignore these types of symptoms which may result in serious problems or the death of the traveler while trekking to the high altitude.

It is not recommended to drink alcohol at such a high altitude. Though there is some medicine available to prevent altitude sickness, you are suggested to take rest and take precautions rather than medicine.

 

Weather and Temperature

Change in the temperature drastically is based on the weather , altitude , climate and seasons. The average temperature at the Annapurna Base Camp region is about 15 to 20-degree centigrade on a sunny day during the autumn and spring whereas, in the summer, the temperature ranges from 20-25 degrees centigrade.The temperature is normal and moderate during the day time or under the sun time.  In winter, it is the most dangerous and the challenging season in the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. In this season, there is the possibility of heavy snowfall and the temperature can be below 0 and can be decreased to minus 17 degrees centigrade at the night time. Autumn is the picking season to trek Annapurna Base Camp because of the good and calm weather condition in the mountain at this time of the year. After Autumn season, the spring season is also best season to trek in Annapurna region because the days are very beautiful and charming, we can experience the green and beautiful Himalayan flora and fauna, walk through the green terraced field, with the gorgeous and the heart touching views of the snow painted mountain peaks.The best part of the trekking in Annapurna Base Camp is you can trek here in monsoon too as there will be less chance of rainfall in this region. This whole region is rain shaded, so the monsoon does not affect too much while trekking in the Annapurna region.So,before trekking you should take all the essential and seasonal clothes for the drastic change in weather and temperature.

 

Lack of Training

The most reliable, legendary and classical trek is the Annapurna base camp as the route of this trek is not so difficult. However for the new mountain hikers it will be a challenging trek. Therefore, best preparation is needed for the adventure hiking if you are trekking the mountain region for the first time. First of all the trekkers should take 6 weeks of training before making a trip to the Annapurna region to make the body healthy as well as physically and mentally fit and fine.At the higher altitude walk or the walk-in uphill, even a short period of the walk will make you feel tired. Descending towards the lower region is comparatively easier than ascending uphill to the higher altitude as in the high altitude there is very less amount of the oxygen up in the mountains.If you are perfectly trained, you can trek any kind of trekking trial easily. To maintain your fitness, you have to perform difficult works, even simple exercises such as stretching, jogging, swimming, skipping can be helpful for you.

 

Budget

The country of Nepal is one of the most inexpensive trekking destinations in the world. However, the price of the goods and things you use will get more expensive as you reach at a higher altitude than at the lower altitude. The cost of the food and accommodation get tripled or more than it is in normal rate this due to the lack of good transportation and communication facilities in the mountain region.

 

Guide and porter difficult

Most trekkers do trekking with a guide but not a porter and there are some trekkers who trek to Annapurna base camp on their own without any guide or porter. Annapurna base camp is absolutely doable without a guide or a porter. However hiring a guid means you are always on a safer side.The trek doesn’t involve any technical sections but there are some steep and rugged sections. Also, walking up and down the stone stairs is not so easy. So, hiring a porter is also useful.But if you think that you have good physical conditions, you can carry your backpack on your own.

Flag Of Nepal

Introduction 

In the past, hundreds of kingdoms existed with unique flags and designs. Sadly, as time changed, many countries have risen and fallen. However, among them, Nepal is a nation that has been never conquered or colonized. Also, the flag of Nepal is a unique flag in the world. Nepali Flag, the national flag in Nepal is the only flag in the world that is nonquadrilateral in shape.

 

Color/Shape/Design

The design of the Nepali flag dates back centuries. The color used the flag-crimson and blue. 

In the upper part of the flag lies a white moon with eight rays along with a crescent below it. Also, the lower part has a stylized white sun with 12 rays. Previously, there were facial features representing both sun and moon though currently removed.

The color crimson on the flag represents the bravery of the Nepalese. The color crimson, white and blue has a huge meaning. The color crimson represents closeness, blue represents distance and white represents neutrality.

Also, the crimson color is also lucky in Hinduism.

 

Meaning of Nepalese Flag

The meaning of the sun and moon is as long as the sun and moon exist, Nepal will continue to exist.

Also, according to Hinduism, Sun is one of the five gods in the Hindu religion and is often used in rituals. The 12 signs of the month of Nepal and Hinduism are based on the sun. It is also the symbol of the soul.

Likewise, the moon symbolizes the heart and is also the head of the asteroids.

 

History of Nepali Flag

The Nepali flag was not the original flag of Nepal. It is also believed that the design of the flag took inspiration from the Malla dynasty in the past.  

Instead, many also believe that this flag was based on two different pennants of the ruling  Rana Family and their rival branch. Both the pennant was made during the last centuries.  However, the flag was only accepted as a constitutional flag on 1962.

The upper portion of the moon represented the Royal Family and The lower parts symbolized the Rana Family. 

 

Why Nepali Flag is unique?

The Nepali flag is in nonquadrilateral shape. But there are also many countries in the world that do not follow the rectangular shape. According to many, these flags are found in many countries in mountainous regions, land-locked or not well-known nations. For example- Switzerland still has a square flag. Other examples can also include the Ethiopian national flag.

People also believe that many places in India also use such non-rectangular flags. Though, they may have been lost in Indian Independence.

Therefore, Nepali Flag is a living Fossil that showcases the lost design of the flags on the Indian Subcontinent.

 

Entry of the Nepali Flag into the world

The first entry of the Nepali Flag was found by M. Lupant in a book published by Perceval Laundon in 1928 (Nepal, vol. 1, pp. 233-236, Constable, London).

 

Proposals for Flag change

Since the end of the monarchy, there have been many proposals for flag changes.

There was a debate that believed that since the fun and moon in the flag do not advocate monarchy, the flag should be changed.

In the past, there were proposals from the parties UCPN Maoist, Rashtriya Janamorcha and Dalit Janjati Party filed the petition to change the national flag. However, the Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and Nepali Majdoor Kisan Party thwarted it.

The trek is continued to Tengboche following the route of Imja Khola to Dingboche. Before the final trek to Everest base camp, climb the Khumbu Glacier and stay at Lobuche, refilling the full energy and excitement for the final touch of the trek.

The gateway to the Everest base camp from the northeast of Nepal has the biggest potential to attract the trekker on this route. The alternate trekking trial is a lengthy but highly famous path that is known for, followed by Tenzing Sherpa and Edmund Hillary. 

 

We created the schedule with the goal of incorporating a variety of fascinating cultural sites into the excursion.

Each day has the potential to surprise you with fresh and unique experiences, where you will be able to see monks performing daily prayers.

 

Jiri to Everest base camp trek

The best road trip skipping the Lukla flight is Jiri to Everest base camp. Very few trekking take this route to reach the Everest base camp, so the path is very natural and undisturbed where you can get full access to enjoy the off-beaten trail to the base camp. You will cross the numerous valleys and the vegetation. 

 

The lengthier, off-the-beaten-path approach to Everest Base Camp through Jiri includes less-crowded lodges, stunning scenery rarely seen by visitors, and close encounters with the great, hospitable villagers.

 

Everest base camp helicopter tour

Gokyo and Renjo La pass trek

The Gokyo and Renjo La routes are ideal for individuals who desire to trek the Everest region’s unspoiled paths. Fewer than ten percent of trekkers in the Summit region choose to go into the Gokyo Valley, a high alpine location with unique views of the world’s tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. The day-long hike through the Renjo La is thrilling and difficult.

 

Because it does not go all the way to Everest base camp, Gokyo Valley and Renjo la pass trekking is the shorter option. This trip is one of the better alternatives to Everest Base Camp in the Everest region; the trail is lush with natural beauty and offers a stunning view of Mount Everest.

 

Three passes and Everest base camp trek

The finest trekking alternative to the Everest Base Camp Trek is to combine three high passes with the Everest Base Camp Trek.
