However, a single private room will be provided during the trek without any extra cost for solo female travelers.

    During the trek, we will ensure and accommodate you to the best available tea houses with great views of the mountain and sceneries.

    Best Time 

    Choose the best month for your remarkable trekking experience of a lifetime! Nepal has five seasons like many other countries; spring, Summer, Monsoon, Autumn, and Winter. Among all these seasons there are mainly two distinct trekking seasons for Island Peak Climb or any region treks in Nepal which are autumn and spring.

    Spring (Pre-monsoon) – Spring includes Feb, March, April, and May, the weather in this month is largely stable and dry with a moderate climate. This time of the year is fairly perfect for trekking in the Everest region offers a crystal clear view of the mountains and sceneries every day, the Temperature can reach up to 15- 20 degrees Celsius in the daytime and the temperature at the nighttime can drop down to - 8/12 degrees Celsius. The spring welcomes thousands of flora and vegetation that make the trek more beautiful and enjoyable in Nepal.

    Autumn (Post monsoon)- Autumn is another great season for trekking on Island Pe, Autumn includes months of September, October, November, and December. During the autumn, the temperatures should be rated as between 14-20 degrees in the daytime, and nighttime can decrease to -5/10 degrees Celsius, it’s great for trekking.

    Travel Insurance

    For safety reasons, Travel insurance is mandatory for trekkers in participating in any trek and tour programs on the mountains. Getting travel insurance, especially while traveling in the mountain areas, is like security on which you can rely and enjoy your trip without any worries. We highly recommend getting good compressive travel insurance that covers things like emergency helicopter rescue, medical evacuation expenses. It will be an assisted protection tour to cover personal injury, injury, repatriation expenses, and any kind of illness will be covered. Having good travel insurance will not only guarantee you peace of mind while you travel with us but also provide you with complete coverage for anything that may go wrong.

    Drinking-Water 

    Everest region has many shops or even on tea house you will easily be found the regular bottle of mineral water to buy, also we have plenty of water sources along the way, refilling the water from the random taps or water source is potable but it will be fine to drink with a Lifestraw or using the water purification pills. Remember, water is one of the most important factors while trekking at such a high altitude and it might be replaced as oxygen – at least 2-4 L water per day is recommended.

    Safety and Satisfactions

    SAFETY IS OUR TOP PRIORITY- NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF OUR CLIENTS AND EMPLOYEES.

    On this trek, you will be accompanied by one of the experienced and friendly trekking guides/ Sherpa who originally come from the mountain (same region) of Nepal, the guide will be carrying all the essentials equipment with a first aid kit for safety reasons; we would like you to take some of your own personal mediation on this trek. However, in emergency cases, if our clients have any trouble with mountain sickness or any unforeseen circumstances then we will always be standing by to send a rescue helicopter to bring our clients back to lower places or Kathmandu.

    Note: During the trek, make sure you are always in the safe zone of the place wherever you are while trekking on the mountain because you may encounter a number of mules, yaks are carrying the suppliers for hotels, Yaks Donkey and Jokpa use for the major transportations in the Himalayas region, as we always need to be aware with them, and stay at the safe place especially at the narrow section of the trail.

    Reviews

    • Mansour - December 10, 2017

      Mera Peak

      After tremendous search on the internet to select a good operator with a reasonable price to ascent Mera Peak, Alpine Ramble Treks was the choice.

      Even though I was unable to make it to the summit due to the snow condition, fresh/unconsolidated snow up to the chest. All people I met did not make it above 6200m. I choose a very bad time to do this ascent which was in Sep 2019. We did not see the sun for more than 6 hours in 10 days, this tells you how bad the weather was. Many people stranded in Lukla for more than 6 days (no flights due to the weather condition)

      Alpine Ramble did an excellent job in meeting my last minute demands for this trek. The owner of the company was kind enough to meet me at the beginning and dropped me off the airport after. The guide and the porter (Tilak and Suman) were more than firends, actually brothers. I really enjoyed this adventure even though I did not make it to the summit. Alpine Ramble was amazing in booking the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and the other way around. I'm amazed that there was no major delay. I was afraid that I would lose days waiting for a flight to take me to Lukla but I give a credit to Alpine Ramble in their excellent effort booking with the right airline at the right time.

      I would definitly choose Alpine Ramble for my next visit to Nepal (maybe Island Peak this time) and I would recommend it to anyone.

      The only drawback I noticed in my trip is the hotel booked for me. I think there are better options at same level.
