02 -May -2019




As 2019 climbing season in Everest nears to an end, climbers this time of the year encountered over crowding on Mt. Everest. The death toll for the 2019 climbing season in Everest counts to 11, according to government tallies. It has been noted as one of the worst seasons on record. Many made it to the summit but few perished trying to accomplish their dream to conquer Everest. The main reason of death which occurred at the Hilary step " The death zone" was due to traffic jam of climbers. In the death zone, climbers' brains and lungs are starved for oxygen, their risk of heart attack and stroke is increased, and their judgment quickly becomes impaired,and they can experience heart attacks, strokes, or severe altitude sickness.In the recent Everest Spring 2019 climb, the queues to reach Everest's summit have been so long that climbers in the Death Zone died of exhaustion waiting in line for their turn to climb.

 Expedition organizers say the number of Everest hopefuls from the Nepal side has increased in recent years after China set a limit on climbers from the Tibetan side.

Overcrowding is not only the factor for numerous deaths on Mount Everest

Effect of unusual spring weather in Nepal: The spring weather is also indicator that agriculture harvest would be good. Agriculture harvest play critical role in growth’s prospective. At this time the country is under the spell of early monsoon rain; very much unlike dry, sunny and windy spring weather in the past. In the mountain there is fresh snow and rest of the region has rain almost daily for couple of hours. Though day time is hot but there are short and heavy rain pour at some point during the day.  Obviously, the effect of climate change has changed the weather pattern: Autumn season is pushed beyond December and winter season has encroached spring weather pattern.

               Two Amazing Village to visit before it is to late


                                           Upper Mustang and Nar Phu Village

Lo Manthang in Upper Mustang and Nar Phu villages in the north east corner of Manang are two villages that has special features that enthusiastic travelers love to visit in their life time. Both villages were very much secluded until the end of last century. These areas still remained controlled for foreign visitors. To enter Mustang the permit cost US$500 for 10 days and US$75  for Nar Phu. And you got to be in a group of minimum 2 persons. 

Unlike earlier days now the access is much easier due to road that has reached almost closed to these destinations. The road to Lo Manthang is actually not a road. It is virtually carved out of the flat land of the plateau in the north. Every year in the beginning of summer local people make motorable path by shuffling stones and big boulders of the river bed through the narrow gully in the lower section. 

The road from Pokhara to Beni that is stretched through Kaligandaki valley is in operating condition throughout the year except in monsoon season the flood may disrupt part of the road. The road goes all the way to Muktinath and beyond Kagbeni towards Lo Manthang. There is no road to Nar and Phu valley but the main road through Marsyangdi river valley has reached Manang. These are fair weather road. In winter it is not feasible and in summer (during monsoon rain) there is no guarantee if the road remains in operating condition. 

In upper Mustang the jeep and truck can still ply through rough condition. It is indeed an adventure to take ride in one of the jeeps or trucks that ply the roads. The road has opened the regions for easy access to basic need and trade. In due time as the road becomes better its effect will be seen in the transformation of the unique culture these two villages has so far maintained. Now the trek logistics, schedule and duration can be modified to suit trekker’s requirement to visit the fascinating land. Visit this charming land and villages now so you can say later that I did the trek then when it was different and interesting. These are the sentiment expressed by old time trekkers who had done Annapurna Circuit trek when there were no road and easy access.Y
