The expedition nears its ultimate showdown once you reach the Paldor Base Camp. You will gear up for the summit of Paldor Peak, which stands tall at an elevation of 5896 meters (19343 ft).

Once you defeat all the obstacles and reach the top of Paldor Peak, you will be amazed by the breathtaking scenery around you. The summit offers stunning views of Ganesh Himal I (7422m), Ganesh Himal II (7118m), Ganesh Himal III (7043m), Langtang Lirung (7227m), Manaslu Peak (8516m) as well as the Tibetan mountain including Shishapangma (8013m) and other surrounding snow-capped peaks.

With our guidance and cooperation, you can clinch this adventure and tick it off your bucket list without any trouble. We have a team of specialist climbers, who have the experience of achieving the hardest of climbs with minimal or no risks.

At the end of this climbing expedition, you will have a handful of memories to store on your memory shelf for a long time.

Short History of Paldor Peak

Mountaineers Ian Howell and John Cleare first summitted the Paldor Peak in 1974. It has become one of the best trekking peaks in the Ganesh Himal region. People can challenge the Northeast, Southeast, West, and Southwest Ridges to climb this mountain.

Is This Paldor Peak Climbing Right For You?

  • Since you have to spend most of the days at higher altitudes, the weather can be unpredictable. It can also affect your adventure and may likely put it to a halt. You need to make sure that you thoroughly consider the time of the year you wish to be part of this climbing adventure. The trail conditions and picturesque views around the landscapes vary between seasons.
  • For more than a week or so, you will have to walk for 3 to 7 hours, excluding the Paldor Peak climb itself. Therefore, make sure that you are up to the challenges you may have to face during the trip. If you have been following some kind of climbing and hiking exercises prior to the journey, it would be extensively helpful.
  • Our properly planned itinerary will award you even more sightseeing of the youngest mountains in the world, allowing ample time apart for adaptation and acclimatization.
  • The tea houses where you will be staying during the trekking period are very simple with only basic facilities. Access to electricity to charge your electronic devices will cost you some extra bucks. On the other hand, Wi-Fi service will be available at a few locations, but connections will not be to the par. However, you can manage all the advanced facilities when you stay in the 3-star hotel at Kathmandu.
  • The most important part of the expedition includes the scaling of Paldor Peak. The climb is not as challenging as Paldor Peak Climbing, Island Peak Climbing, and Mera Peak Climbing. Therefore, having a prior climbing experience is not that necessary before you take on this adventure. However, if you have previous experience, it will assist you in completing this expedition successfully.
  • The expedition includes several days of accommodation over 3000 meters, where there is the risk of getting harmed by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). You may notice shortness of breath accompanied by a mild headache. Your guide will make sure you walk slowly and steadily to let your body adapt to the thinning air.
  • You don’t have to worry about worst-case scenarios. Our Sherpa guides are well-trained in first-aid and will provide emergency medication to assist you in difficulty. During extreme cases, we will rescue you employing a rescue helicopter. If you doubt your physical ability, you need to ask for medical advice from the doctors before booking this campaign.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the best time to take on the Paldor Peak Climbing Expedition?

The best time to carry out this Paldor Peak Climbing Expedition is between April and May in Spring and September, October, and November in the Autumn. The Northeast and Southeast ridges are the best routes for you to climb this stunning mountain.

Who will be my guide?

At Nepal Social Treks, we offer you some of the experienced local guides. Our expert guides have been to the relevant trekking and climbing areas several times. All the guides are docile, experienced, and authorized by the Government of Nepal.

Our guides are expert mountaineers with a vast knowledge of the Himalayas. They have more than 5 years of expertise in ascending Mount Everest at least 3 times. Besides, they are well-trained and assessed by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) or the International Federation of Mountain Guides Association (IFMGA), with many years of mountaineering and climbing experience in the world’s highest mountains.

What is Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)? How can it be treated?

Acute mountain sickness is a critical health effect of high altitude prompted by your body’s reaction to a shortage of oxygen. The volume of oxygen available at sea level is twice that contained at 5000m above sea level. Your body requires enough time to regulate your breathing to a higher altitude. You normally encounter the effect of the high altitude above 2800 meters.

To prevent AMS, you need to acclimate your body when trekking to higher altitudes. Moreover, you should intake enough fluids and immediately rest when you feel tired and dizzy while walking.

What are the symptoms of AMS?

The primary symptoms of AMS include headache, nausea, loss of appetite, cough, and fatigue. If you feel any of these symptoms, take rest and halt your adventure for that day. If your health is getting more serious even while resting, return to a lower altitude. You should take proper rest until you feel okay. You can always abandon your expedition if you are feeling unwell. Let your guides know if you are having issues during the expedition and act on their advice.

Am I likely to get altitude sickness on this expedition?

As the elevation on this expedition exceeds 5500m, the possibilities of getting altitude sickness are generally high. You will have less oxygen as you summit the top of Paldor Peak. However, our itinerary allows you to get a proper time to acclimatize. Our guides have years of experience handling this kind of situation as they are trained well in using first-aid kits.

Plus, our guides will carry emergency oxygen with a regulator and mask while climbing to receive immediate help when you need it. In case your situation worsens, we will carry out the emergency rescue evacuation as per the company’s rule.

What kinds of climbing equipment should I carry for this expedition?

For a better experience, you can pack a pair of climbing boots, thermal wear, down jacket, windproof jacket, down pants, waterproof pants, sun cap, balaclava, gloves, sleeping bag, climbing helmet, poles, and a first-aid kit. You can also add extras like a walking stick, pocket knife, and raincoat for extra safety.

What about drinking water during the adventure?

We are cautious about your health, so we provide safe water for drinking throughout the expedition. You can purchase bottled water from the hotels and lodges where we stay. Moreover, it would be best if you can manage the water purifiers with you. Besides, you can buy some tablets that help in water purification.

What are the accommodation facilities during the expedition?

During your stay in Kathmandu, we will offer you accommodation in a 3-star hotel as part of our B/B plan. Similarly, when you are trekking, you will have accommodations in tea houses (mountain lodge) as part of our plan (accommodation, breakfast, lunch, and dinner). We would like to notify you that tea houses are more like hotels. They offer the facilities of hot showers, western food, and private rooms (twin sharing).

What are the banking facilities en route?

Nepal has some of the modern banking facilities. It accepts almost all foreign currencies and credit cards, such as American Express, Visa, and Mastercard. Most of the towns that you pass through during your trekking provide ATM facilities too.

How do I get a Nepal Visa to carry out this expedition?

The Immigration Office at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, facilitates Tourist Visa on Arrival. You need to pay USD 30 visa fee for two weeks, USD 50 for a month, and USD 125 for 3 months. Besides, the Tourist Visa Extension requires a minimum of 15 days (USD 45) and USD 3 for each extra day.

International ID photograph duplicate (need to be clear with shading sweep) and legitimacy of at least 6 months
2 International ID-sized photographs
