Which route should be taken for Everest high pass trek

Before starting Everest high pass trek, everybody have one questions in their mind: Which route should be taken for Everest high pass trek?

There are two different routes to Everest high pass trek: clockwise and anticlockwise. The clockwise route go via Namche, Thamo, Thame, Lumde, Renjo la pass, Gokyo lake, Gokyo Ri, Dragnag, Cho La passk, Dzong La, Thukla, Lobuche, Everest Base Camp, Kalapathar, Kongma La pass, Chukkung, Dingboche, Thyangboche, Namche and Lukla.

For the anticlockwise route, the trail follows Lukla, Namche, Thyangboche, Dingboche, Chukkung, Chukkung Ri, Kongma La pass, Lobuche, Everest Base Camp, Kalapathar, Thukla, Dzong La, Cho La pass, Drangnag, Gokyo Lake, Gokyo Ri,Renjo La pass, Lumde,Thame, Thamo, Namche and Lukla.

On the clockwise route cross you will come upon Renjo La pass in three days from Namche, which may be too soon for some to acclimatize to. Whereas if you go anticlockwise there is time to acclimatize since you will have the chance to climb peaks.

The other benefit of anticlockwise route is that you can still carry on with your trek to completion even if you fail to cross the pass. In contrast in respect to clockwise route, you will compulsorily have to cross the pass if you are to continue the trek.

Despite the differences, both clockwise and anticlockwise routes need equal amount of time and budget.

Nepal’s main dish for lunch and dinner is Dal Bhat, which is a combination of rice, lentil and curry. For snacks, Momo, Chowmein, Roti Tarkari, Samosa, Aloo Paratha are almost conventional.

The tourist area of Thamel is chock a block with restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines. But to find a restaurant in Thamel offering cheapest bill of fare is not easy due to high rental cost.

But then there are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity of Thamel that are willing to charge cheaper rates. But paying cheap would often mean compromising on quality of food and environment. Street food is also gaining coin in many tourist areas such as Thamel, Kathmandu Durbar Square and Pokhara but the food served are less hygienic.

Ethnic restaurants such as those run by ethnic communities (Thakali, Sherpa, Newar, Tamang) can also be a good choice for cheap filling. Another option would be stick to bakery items like Sandwich, Doughnuts, and Croissants etc. Over the years the number of bakery outlets in tourist areas have increased making it easier for tourists to get quick and cheap food.
