Lukla Flight Notice

As per Civil Aviation Association of Nepal (CAAN) decision, flights to and from Lukla airport will be operated from MANTHALI airport, Ramechhap. The Civil aviation association of Nepal (CAAN) has acquainted that there is rapid accession of traffic blockage at Kathmandu Airport and the Lukla sector is believed to be the busiest domestic flights sectors of Nepal. Flight to Lukla is one of the most occupied flights during the trekking season in Nepal and to avoid the traffic congestion and minimize the workload of TIA, they’ve drawn a conclusion i.e. all the flights to and from Lukla are rerouted from Kathmandu Airport to Manthali Airport, Ramechhap again.

The Chief of Tribhuwan International Airport, Raj Kumar Chhetri has informed that all the airlines have prepared for their morning flights to Lukla via Ramechhap. So, if you’ve already booked a trek to Everest region with us within the period above mentioned, make sure that you are prepared for a flight to Lukla via Ramechhap (Manthali airport) instead of Kathmandu. So, we would like to request all our admired guests who have confirmed trips in Everest region to have this information updated: We’ve to drive to Manthali Airport from Kathmandu at 2 am (approx.) to catch the flight from Manthali to Lukla. The 137 km drive will take around 4-5 hours.

Another reliable and a bit expensive option is going for a helicopter upgrade and flying to Lukla straight from Kathmandu. The Kathmandu helipad area will not be affected and you can have Helicopter flight to Lukla from 6.30 am onwards. The upgrade could cost you a top up of USD 350-500 per person depending on the payload and availability of the flights.

About Pachermo and Kyajo Ri Expedition

This expedition includes two rarely climbed peaks in the Rolwaling and Khumbu regions of Nepal. Pachermo, 6187 m, is a relatively straight forward trekking peak which is an excellent preparation for the tougher objective - Kyajo Ri, 6186 m.
 
Pachermo Peak:
The approach trek follows the remote and beautiful Rolwaling Valley (east to west) to the Tasi Labsta pass, 5755 m, which is due north of Pachermo Peak. 
 
The Tasi Labsta pass is part of the ridge that rises between the Rolwaling Valley and the Thame Valley (of the Khumbu).  A one-day drive to Dolakha takes us to the trail head.  Trekkers are seldom seen in the rugged wilderness of the Rolwaling Valley. The valley is at first steep sided and covered in thick forests but climbs into high summer pastures where the valley widens out to incredible mountain scenery. 
 
A long, grueling hike over rocky moraine and crevassed snow leads to where the glacier flattens out astride the Tasi Labsta Pass, a wild and impressive place where we are surrounded by superb vista of two mountain ranges in one of the most inaccessible parts of the Himalaya.  Many peaks have never been climbed or even named. From here there is also a magnificent view of the summit of Pachermo, and the route of ascent; a clearly defined northern ridge leads up to the snowy peak.
 
The base camp is on a rocky terrace just below the glacier at around 5700m. Pachermo is a straight forward climb on steep snow with several sections of scrambling on rock and ice.  Weather, snow and glacier conditions play a large part in how difficult the route will be. Sometimes it can be tricky traversing the crevasses on the ice step below the summit. If necessary we will use fixed ropes. From the summit of Pachermo there is a magnificent view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. We descend into the Thame Valley towards our next and tougher objective, Kyajo Ri.
 
Kyajo Ri:  This semi technical peak has until now has received little attention from the climbing world despite being so close to Namche Bazaar in the popular Everest region. Though its height puts it in the trekking peak category, Kyajo Ri is a full-blown expedition peak with plenty of technical interest.The south-west ridge of Kyajo Ri is significantly harder, both physically and technically, than Lobuche East-East or Island Peak.  
 
Kyajo Ri is the highest summit on the southern part of a ridge which runs from north of Namche Bazaar all the way to Cho Oyu on the Nepal-Tibet border. This ridge divides the Thame valley to the west and the Gokyo valley to the east. Kyajo Ri  is the highest peak in the vicinity and so there is a sensational panoramic view from the top; we can see Everest and all the other 8000-meter peaks of the Khumbu.
 
Base Camp, 4400m, is in a secluded hanging valley at, a couple of days walk from Thame, where Tenzing Norgay grew up. The Kyajo Ri climb utilizes two camps.There are some very highly exposed and steep pitches between Camp II, 5700m, and the summit. It is a beautiful mountain, with a sharp defined summit unlike Lobuche East, or Island Peak, which have long undefined summits that can be confusing to confirm on summit day.
 
The best season for Pachermo and Kyajo Ri Climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December  the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around. The duration of the Pachermo and Kyajor Ri Trip can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions will arrange every detail of your Pachermo and Kyajo Ri Expedition; lodge accommodation, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment.

Useful Info

Why Climb Pachermo and Kyajo Ri with Annapurna Foothills Treks?

Annapurna Foothills Treks has been running climbing expeditions for over 10 years. Annapurna Foothills Treks reaches for the highest ethical business practices. Our team of mountaineering guides is dynamic, professional, and qualified as instructors.


Why Climb with a Sherpa?

Annapurna Foothills Treks is here to save you the unnecessary expense of going with an expatriate company and an expatriate guide. Our qualified and experienced guides are well able to guide your expedition safely and can provide an accurate cultural perspective as well. Additionally, when you book with Annapurna Foothills Treks, you are supporting the Sherpa community who are dependent on the trekking/climbing industry for their livelihood.

Our climbing guides are dedicated mountaineers and license-holders who always put your safety first. They use harness and ropes below the every peak whether for crevasse danger or steep slopes. Our Sherpa guides are there to fix the rope as well as teach climbers how to fix the rope or set up a belay for glacier travel.

While some people spend unnecessarily to go with a foreign company, others risk their lives to save money by going without a guide. We encourage you to play it safe, and climb with our experienced guides. Our packages are reasonably priced and afford the safety of an experienced guide who will allow you the independence you desire.

To be safe, you dont need shops worth of Karabiners, ice-screws, snow stakes and rock racks- You need a Sherpa guide as a partner, some rope, a few bits of protection, good weather and overriding urge to die of old age.

The routes we suggest are almost always the most straightforward. Under good conditions, none of the routes are challenging for skillful technical alpinist. Safety-conscious amateurs have potential to provide satisfaction and experience without much risk.
 

Sherpa Support Staff:

Even our support staff are well experienced, so you can look forward to a well organized trip. The relationship we have developed among us over the years makes for a wonderful exchange of ideas, laughter and assistance. Your personal packs will be carried by the porters, saving you time and energy to fully enjoy the surrounding environment.

Each staff member at Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions is insured for their appropriate roles. (Some companies are cutting corners here.)
 

Logistics:

You can fully enjoy the world of mountains unfettered by the rigors of food preparation, lodging and logistics. Annapurna Foothills Treks provides a wide variety of quality meals to keep climbers healthy and strong. Most of the food is flown in from the Kathmandu.

 

Environmental Responsibility:

Annapurna Foothills Treks practices and teaches the Leave-No-Trace principles. Moreover, we are committed to protecting the land and culture of the indigenous people. The mountains are our home and we are unwilling to sacrifice their preservation for human objectives. Annapurna Foothills Treks believe that given the proper information most people will do all they can to help protect and maintain the environment.

 

Altitude Advice:

It is really difficult to head straight up to high altitude for the first time even if you follow the recommended 400m-a-day-rule. Walking, let alone climbing, uphill at 5000m is harder than you think. The trek in is a means of acclimatization and getting fit. Our itinerary is planned to allow rational acclimatization and avoid altitude sickness. We should also plan for few extra days as bad weather may affect the designed schedule. This doesnt guarantee the successful ascent but often avoids the disappointment of a cloudy summit day.

 

Safety

When travelling in remote mountain regions, uncertainties such as weather, health problems and natural disasters require a certain amount of flexibility. While our goal is to follow the itinerary, that is not our first priority; your safety is always our first priority. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions request your cooperation to accept the decisions and advice of our trusted and experienced guides if they deem it necessary to change or cancel any part of the itinerary due to safety concerns.

 

Travel Insurance:

To must be adequately protected in terms of insurance. You will need special travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. We recommend a complete travel insurance policy that covers cancellation, lost baggage, theft, injury, liability, medical treatment, death and expenses. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal including trekking and climbing.

If a client requires medical treatment, all hospital expenses, including doctors fees and repatriation costs, are the clients responsibility.

If you are injured and unable to walk in a remote area, a helicopter rescue will be arranged. Annapurna foothills Treks has an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. We will pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Before leaving on the expedition, we will make sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism otherwise you may have a difficult time settling the large claim.

 

Flight Delay/Cancellation :

Domestic flights to mountain regions can be delayed or cancelled due to bad weather. Be aware that you may have long waits in the airports. From our side, if a flight is cancelled we make sure you get on the next earliest possible flight 

If flight cancellations at the start of your trek delay your trek to the point of disturbing your onward travel schedule, you will be free to choose an alternative trip; there are many excellent options in the Annapurna, Langtang and other regions. If you do not wish to take an alternative trek, and wait in Kathmandu for the flight to Lukla, your original trek may be shortened due to the days lost in waiting. In such case, the client will be responsible to bear all additional expenses including food and accommodation.

If the client wishes to make an alternative arrangement such as a helicopter flight, Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions will assist in making the booking, but will not cover the cost of the alternative arrangement. The refunded money of the unused flight ticket would be credited to the concerned client, however.

There will be no refund for the days of the trek that are missed. You will not be entitled to any refund for services in the package (ie hotel, transport, flight) that you did not use due to the cancellation.

It is advisable to allow one or two extra days at the end of your trip to allow for flight delay/cancellation.
