Places to visit in Kathmandu Blog by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   18 January 2020  
Kathmandu - A city of temples, capital of Kingdom of Nepal, a city for the gateway for Mount everest trek and the city of warm hearted people.
 
After coming back from Everest base camp trek, we stayed here for few more days to explore Kathmandu and our stay was onnce again at Thamel. So late me start with THAMEL.
 
Thamel - The most happening place of the city and a traveler's hub. Its an area with dancing energies, basically the best place to stay if you are heading for any trek in Nepal. 
 
The web streets covrered with 1000s of shops and sells everything you'll need for treks in mountains and in night Thamel really awaken. The cheerful bars, casino, open restaurants, roof tops, live bands, I feel Thamel can be included in best travel night spots in the world.
 
If you want a sophisticated evening or a wild night of dancing and shots, Thamel has it all. It is the biggest and best entertainment place in Kathmandu.
 
And I would like to thanks once again to the wonderful staff of Holy lodge hotel, where we stayed.

Kala Pathar trek to Pangboche blog - Mount Everest base camp - Day 9

Posted Date :   03 January 2020  
It was our day at Gorakhshep and near to Mount Everest Peak. At Everest base camp one actually see Mount Everest peak. To see it one need to trek to Kala Pathar. Kala pathar is basical a Hill and which take you to the height of roughly 5.5 km. That means you gain around 350 meters in a single trek.
 
So let me start this blog. It is our Day 10 and we are going to hike Kala pathar today. 
We woke very early morning this day, that is. 3 am. There was a time when we both Gaurav and I thought, let's leave this but then it was our last day and our only chance to click Mount Everest peak so closely and so we Pushed ourselves once again.
 
It was damn cold outside when we started our trek. The point was to see Sunrise at this point. Around 4 am few group of people started trekking it and along with we also joined. 
 
The trek is the most difficult part of this trip and It was the 5th time when I thought, now is the time when my lungs would explode :D ...
 
It took almost 3 hrs to trek to Kalapathar. The temperature was like in -5 or -10 degree... I spilled some water from my bottle which was instantly freezed up. We took few pictures and tried our best to make video which was indeed one the most difficult task we both took to do.
But we saw a wonderful view of Mount everest Peak... I can't forget for my rest of life...

Lobuche to Gorakhshep to EVEREST BASE CAMP blog- Day 8

Posted Date :   25 December 2019  
I forgotton to mention that at Lobuche you even have to pay for Tap water. Rs. 50/- per litre and Mineral water cost here at Gorakhshep... cost around NPR 400/- per litre.
So, what we done here is purchased empty bottles and purchased 6 litres of water at luboche which to be used in Gorakhshep - Our next destination.
 
Another thing I would like to share with you all about our daily routine. We used to woke up 6am and get fresh by 7 am. By 7.30 am we take our breakfast and normally leave the lodge. And we used to take our dinner by 7.30pm and sleep by 9pm.
 
Up-to Dingboche it was all ok with us but at Lobuche it became difficult, predominantly because we did not ate well here. Temperature was darastically low and I got Cold here. My nose started bleeding river streams :D 
 
So let me start with Lobuche morning. It is our Day 8th and we are going to Gorakhshep and then to EVEREST BASE CAMP. Yes it's the D Day, the destination, for which everything was planned. Distance from Lobuche to Gorakhshep is just 5 km (approx) and still it can take 3-4 hrs basically because of alarming Oxygen level in the air. 
 
It was bright Sunny day when we left Lobuche lodge around 7.30 am but trek was full of Ice. The little streams were frozen up as we saw in morning.

Dingboche to Lobuche Blog - Mount Everest Base camp trek - Day 7

Posted Date :   19 December 2019  
It was once again a very beautiful sunny day  and all the group of people whom we left at Tengbuche finally met at this part of trek once again. Dingboche is place as I told in my previous blog where trekkers usually take a day halt to acclimitize themselves for the final accend for Mount Everest base camp. But since we already did this halt at Pangboche where we did Amadablam base camp trek so we were not in need of it anymore.
 
It is our Day 7 and we are now going to Lobuche which is at the height of 5050 meters from the sea leave and the trek can take 5-5.30 hrs time and the distance we covered for this trek was roughly 8 km.

We left Pangboche quite late and frankly we were the last ones to leave the hotel as our Porter Gombu told us that this going to be the easiest trek of the whole trip and he was right!
 
So today is our Day 6 and we are going to DINGBOCHE. It is at the height of 4350 meters from the sea level and it going to take roughly 3 to 3 and half hrs time. 
 
We saw less trekkers in this part as most of the people trek to Dingboche from Tenboche.

Namche Bazaar to Pangboche blog - Mount Everest base camp trek Day 4

Posted Date :   04 December 2019  
Namche bazaar morning was the happy morning for me... specially because Gaurav was feeling well, which made me energized.
everything was beautiful there, ice caped peak, green mountains, flowers, farms but with lots of people... and I felt it is ok, All were cheerful for the new day trek.
 
So this was our day 4 and we were trekking from Namche bazaar to TengbucheTengbuche is at 3800 meter (approx) from the sea level, that means we are going to gain roughly 400 meters today. And the trek may take roughly 5-5.30 hrs. 
 
We did not had our breakfast at Namche bazaar but packed a burger which we ate on the way. 
 
Most of the trek is like straight... Let me correct myself, it is not a trek at all.. It is a well maintained path which is made by Pasang lama sherpa (an old man now) and his family who are dedicated to make this path. It is not supported by government so it would be great if you donate something there. On the way you can once again see the peak of Mount Everest and many other mountain peaks. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Namche Bazaar - Mount Everest base camp trek - Day 3 by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   30 November 2019  

I was quite fresh in the morning at Namche bazaar. It was again a bright sunny day, took a good rest as I slept earlier but Gaurav was not well. What happened basically when we were coming from Phakding to Namche bazaar, he was quite fast and drained all his energies, so much so that he even did not took his dinner previous night. So I thought leaving him at hotel and giving him time to rest, he will be alright and I left him to see Everest view point.

I must admit the stairs took my breath away when I passing Namche bazaar. There are 100s of stairs which first one need to climb to get on the right path for everest view point.

It was our day 3 and basically not progessing anywhere as it was our acclimitization day. Why to acclimitize yourself. In my experience, where-ever one go to the altitude of 3000 meters above sea level, it is always good to have plenty of rest, stay at such place atleast for a day and then move ahead to more heights. It makes body to adjust itself, to adapt for the oxygen in air. (Effective oxygen in air at Namche is roughly 13.7% only)

Phakding to Namche Bazaar Blog - Mount Everest base camp trek - Day 2

Posted Date :   26 November 2019  
Gaurav was so fresh in morning at Phakding and according to him, the trek actually started. I was not that much fresh, the fact is I sleep late in night and I feel waking up in morning should get illegal someday :P (jokes apart, I am trying my best to wake up in mornings).
 
But to reach on time, we need to wake up as early as possible. And frankly, morning at such places have their own charm. Deep blue sky, snow-covered peaks, mystical landscape, breathing in fresh air relax you somehow. Phakding is beautiful. We started our trek around 8 am after taking a small breakfast.
 
So today is our day 2 and we are going from Phakding to Namche bazaar. Namche Bazaar is at the height of 3400 meters which means this trek we going to gain 800 meters.
 
As soon one start its trek from phakding, you going to face yet another Suspension bridge and from their I started counting how many suspension bridges will come for Everest base camp trek. It's the second one and frankly I was quite excited for it. There was no fear now. 
 
The trek is good and one can notice many tea houses. Many are under-construction as well. All tea-house / lodges at phakding have fix price - Nepali Rs. 500/- however, dinner and breakfast is compulsory. If you do not want that then the price is Rs. 1500/- per room.
