Going to peak climbing destinations with trekking agencies such as Outfitter Nepal is the best way to make your journey hassle-free. Hiring a climbing guide helps a lot. Otherwise, the authorization is not issued. Outfitter Nepal provides trained and qualified guides for your convenience, safety, and successful attempt. These peaks are pretty doable according to Himalayan standards. However, falling snow and ice during climbing may invite challenges, particularly in winter. Thus, joining a good trekking agency will go a long way.
It is also important to note that our Himalayan environment is becoming more polluted at an unprecedented rate, and we can see changes in biodiversity and ecosystem balance. While we can enjoy the trek and climb, we also must avoid disturbance in the natural environment.
It takes a dedicated sharing of responsibility to manage our ecology in a way that still enables our beloved trekkers and climbers to satisfy their requirements for aesthetics, culture, and adventure. Join us on our fixed departure or solo Peak climbing trips: Lobuche Peak, Island Peak, and Mera Peak, in the Mt Everest region. Pisang Peak, Chulu west Peak, Chulu East, Tent Peak and Mardi Himal in Annapurna region.
Here are some ways to accomplish your peak climbing in the best environmentally friendly way possible.
Peak Climbing Organizers
Make sure to book from a reputed trekking company that can demonstrate its familiarity with the region you desire to visit and its adherence to an environmental code of practice.
To lessen the impact on well-traveled paths, use other, less-used trails along the main track or request guidance.
Limit your party to about ten if tenting; larger groups place more strain on tent sites.
Clothing and Equipment
- If you're worried about standing out, you should wear dark or earthy colors and use backpacks and tents that blend in with the scenery.
- Carry a portable stove and cooking fuel to reduce your reliance on timber.
- Carry some garbage bags to help you save fuel.
- Carry your materials, such as metal sticks, for installing the tent, so you depend less on cutting trees.
- Carry earphones so that you do not disturb other travelers.
To save weight, space, and litter, repack food from aluminum foil, cans, and bottles into bin packaging. Do not carry items that cannot be repacked.
If you decide to stop at the lodge for a meal; keep in mind that meals are generally prepared between 9: 00 am, and 11:00 am; if you arrive outside those hours, they might need more firewood to make some meals for you. Try to have dinner at the same time as everyone else.
If you are on a camping journey, make sure to carry stoves. A stove is a must-have item on secluded trails. Similarly, they are fast, efficient, and sustainable. Likewise, they are comparatively safer in a dry or damp environment. The use of stoves also helps you save trees.
- Making a fire should be your last option for cooking on the trail.
- Make sure to make the fire in damp or dry places, on inorganic soil, snow, rock, or gravel, limiting the fire's chances of spreading.
- Rock ringing is a try-and-tested method that does not work, so keep the stones/rocks where they are.
- Built-in existing fireplace in high-use areas; douse with water when finished.
- If you must build on a previously unused site, douse with water, scatter ash and "naturalize" the area when finished.
- Collect firewood some distance from camp and several locations so as not to deplete any area.
- Do not cut trees, you can find some dead ones on the ground or buy them from a local farmer there.
If you require soap, use a biodegradable variety to prevent tainting water and vegetation.
- Urinate on rocks instead of on vegetation to keep away salt-craving wildlife.
- Kick some snow over your pee if it is in the snow to hide the yellowing snow.
- Defecate at least 30 meters away from dwellings, water, campgrounds, pathways, and high waterlines along rivers and lakes to reduce health concerns for other people.
- If you have diarrhea and the distance from the trail is limited by the terrain, such as steep slopes, make sure to excrete in a region with higher sun exposure and less possibility of being walked on or stepped on by travelers. This will help to decompose your feces quickly.
- Make sure to have a jug with you to clean yourself with water. Use toilet paper when necessary, but burn it right after use.
- To make a makeshift toilet, groups should dig at least 20cm below ground. Before leaving the site, bury the pit with soil and other foliage.
- Snow is a known preservative. Thus, if you have to defecate on the trail, make sure to do it in individual smaller holes, which you can cover with snow or mud right after use.
- Wherever there are toilets, make sure to use them.
- Rinse and pack non-combustible items.
- Burn wastes made up of paper, cartoons, or anything combustible.
- Juices should be consumed entirely or diluted in wastewater to prevent the spread of disease-causing insects and other species that can be increased by emptying juice cans.
- Disperse wastewater and the meat viscera widely on the same part of the ground. Pouring liquid cooking water in one location contaminates it with foul odors and draws animals, birds, and other creatures that could be dangerous.
- If any designated "refuse pits" is available, utilize them for any metal, glass, or plastic waste you can't manage.
- Until you reach a settlement where disposal is possible, keep the packaging from chewing gum, sweets, biscuits, medicines, and film in your pocket. If you are inside a private dwelling, always get permission before disposing of your waste on fire.
- Improper garbage disposal increases the vertebrates' population, which becomes sickly in high densities.
An aluminum soft drink or beer can last about 495 years; steel items for 95 years; ordinary plastics for 220 years; glass can last 1 million years. So don't be a litterer; pick up other people's litter too!
- Set up your camps in specified or designated regions to reduce environmental impact in the region.
- In remoter, less frequented areas, select a previously unused campsite to avoid creating sites that will be repeatedly used.
- Camp below the high water line by rivers and lakes, so seasonal washes will clean the site.
- Do not overload your campsite with too many people.
- Flat sites without vegetation and good drainage are preferable.
- Do not rearrange a farmer's field! Leave undisturbed large field stones, fence stones, fence posts, scarecrows, soil, vegetation, and crops.
- Do not try to disturb the vegetation in the region, and make as little interference as possible.
- Make sure to Payback the ecosystem for its services. Be sure to clean the region and ‘naturalize’ it.
