Are you looking forward to the Everest Base Camp Trek through a fairly new unexplored trail, without much to worry about the flight issues to Lukla? If yes, then our special Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trek package might just be the one you are looking for. Everest region trekking generally starts with a short flight of Kathmandu to Lukla but this package is a bit distinct where you will take a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Salleri, the district headquarter of Solukhumbu.

The long yet stunning drive offers the spectacular views of lush green forests, rivers, gorges, terraced fields and many other beautiful panoramas. The trek actually begins from Salleri as we pass through small streams, hilly gorges, beautiful pine and alpine forest, traditional villages and simply incredible backdrop. The close-up view of Numbur Himal as seen during the trail is something that you can only relish whilst trekking through this route. One of the best aspects of taking this route to Everest Base Camp is; it keeps you physically fit and provides ample of time to get well acclimatized before heading to Everest Base Camp.

The marvelous surrounding views and less trafficked trail ultimatey links with the usual trail. The trek goes on as we cross the suspension bridges and reach Sagarmatha National Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Various rare floras and faunas such as blue pines, firs, rhododendron, Himalayan monal, blood pheasant and musk deer can be seen in the national park. Sherpa cultural attraction is one of the finest attractions linked with the sublime Everest region. Namche Bazaar, Khumjung and Tengboche are some of the glaring attractions of the Sherpa villages owing to their hospitality, ancient Buddhist monasteries, mani walls and chhortens.

Through the trail with glacial moraine, your journey reaches to the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar that offer the majestic experience in the Everest region of Nepal. Relishing jaw dropping scenery of sun rising from the casement of Himalayas is definitely an iconic moment of travel tale. Spring and Autumn are the most suitable seasons for this trek. Marvel Adventure conducts this Salleri to Everest Base Camp Trek with a professionally designed itinerary, licensed trekking guides, permits and all other neccessary arrangements.

4. Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. It commonly occurs above 3000 meters. It presents as a collection of nonspecific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". However, most people can ascend to 3000 meters without difficulty.

Primary Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:

  • Lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Swelling of hands, feet, and face
  • Insomnia
  • Shortness of breath upon exertion
  • Nosebleed
  • Persistent rapid pulse
  • Drowsiness
  • General malaise

Prevention:

Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing, hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills are respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and should be avoided. Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS. Thus, Marvel Adventure strictly suggests avoiding alcohol consumption in the first 24–48 hours at a higher altitude.

Guides and porters from Marvel Adventure are very much familiar with this problem due to their experience. All of them are trained with basic medical trainings and hence they definitely can help you.
