Likewise, disposable travel toilet bags to use in the higher camps, while at Base Camp, there are toilet tents that have special tiny drums where human waste goes. It can take away from the mountain and empty safely. Hike about 380 feet up to the Nirekha for better acclimatization but it is not a must.

10 DayNirekha High camp climb (5,300m/17,389 feet), 5 hours.

Right after the base camp, the trail leads with steep ascends for a few hours to the high camp. We may need to make use of fixed ropes and crampons as the trail to the high camp is often sleeper and snowy. Hurrying at high alpine altitude is not a good idea, so moving one step at a time, we set up our campsite on a high camp. Our climbing Sherpa crew will create the final preparations for the main summit climb attempt of Nirekha Peak, the following day.

11 DayNirekha summit climb (6,169m/20,240 feet) and return to basecamp, 9 hours.

As you go higher the trail goes more stepper, thinner and sleeper. Depending on the weather environment, we can expect about 1,640 feet of technically difficult climbing before we stand firm on the snow-crested summit. In cold and dry weather, the trail could be blue ice which makes your climbing more challenging. The pointed Nirekha summit is tiny with amazing views of the entire Khumbu Region. After successful ascend, return to base camp where we will spend the night.

12 DayReserve day for weather contingency.

There is no such guarantee that we can get quite a favorable weather while on climbing. So this day is used as a contingency in case we are unable to get to the summit on an earlier day. If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable, we wisely have to postpone the program. Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.

13 DayDescend downhill to Machermo (4,410m/14,469 feet), 6 hours

After successfully achieving the summit of Nirekha Peak, we will take it easy and start our return journey from the base camp by remaking our steps on the same trail that passes through Dragnag and towards the beautiful Gokyo valley. We continue on our journey back to Machhermo for an overnight stay.

14 DayDescend downhill to Monjo village (2,835m/9,302 feet), 7 hours.
