The steep and snowy trails, high altitude, unstable and unpredictable weather, duration of the trek determine the difficulty grade of this trek.
The most important thing about this trek is crossing the three major high passes that includes Cho La, Renjo La and Kongma La. Therefore, summiting these three major peaks includes high level of potential difficulties. Crossing glaciers, crevasses, icefalls, ice headwalls and ridges are very common in this trek. If you have longed for such a strenuous and challenging but doable climbing expedition with relatively large varieties of traits, this package is the best option for you. Your previous trekking and hiking play a vital role. It is better to take a mountaineering course along with cardio and stress endurance trainings. We suggest you not to take this adventure if you are physically and mentally weak.

Three Peak Climbing Season
Peak Climbing in Nepal is a seasonal activity. Autumn and Spring are the best seasons for climbing most of the mountains in Nepal. Autumn Season (September, October & November) and Spring Season (March, April & May) are the perfect seasons for Climbing Island Lobuche and Nirekha Peak. During these months, the days will be sunny and warm in the Himalayas. The skies will be clear and the atmosphere of the Himalayas will be alluring. Thus, we can have great views of the mountains. Nevertheless, some adventure-seeking clients who don’t like hustle and bustle during the journey also can choose Winter Season (December, January, and February) months for this trip. Monsoon season (June, July, and August) will be pretty difficult time for climbing in the Himalayas because of monsoon. During monsoon the trails will be slippery, muddy and there will be landslides too.

Three Peak Climbing Preparations
The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. Preparation is a key to success of any activity. Good preparations are must for the successful peak climbing. You need to consider several things before going for peak climbing. For the successful Island, Lobuche and Nirekha Peak, your physique plays a vital role. So, you must prepare yourself before the climb. You would better join a mountaineering course for 4-6 months. Otherwise, you can join gym and have aerobic training, cardio, stress endurance training, hiking trainings etc. You can also practice jogging, cycling, swimming, hiking etc.
On a regular basis. Your previous experiences on mountaineering are also important. So, you must practice hiking to some smaller peaks. Similarly, you should be careful about your diet. You must include plenty of protein, carbohydrates, and minerals in your diet. A balanced diet is very important for physical fitness. Moreover, you must be mentally ready to cope up with the adverse situations in the mountain. The weather is unstable at high altitude and you should also spend couple of days in a camp. Hygiene matters a lot for the success of the climb. In addition to all these, you must also go through Island, Lobuche and Nirekha Gears checklist and have enough collection of them.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness. Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema.
Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.

Is Nepal Safe?
No doubt, Nepal is safe for trekking, hiking and mountaineering. The trekking trails are improvised and maintained as well. In many technical sections, ropes have been fixed.
The stains of the devastating earthquake have also been healing up and the decade long armed insurgency has also come to an end along with the implementation of the new constitution.
Tourist Help Desk and Tourism Information Centre have been established at the prominent tourist destinations. Moreover, you will receive a respectable welcome everywhere you go. The Nepali people are simple and kind to you and pay a wonderful hostage to you.
Don’t worry; Nepal is a safe country to visit.
