Kalinchowk Ski tour package is designed for those wants something exciting other than regular trek or trail walking. Kalinchowk not only offers stunning views of Himalayas it also covers the traditional route of Everest base camp via Jiri. Kalinchowk lies at a height of 3800m & the popular Kalinchowk Bhagwati is a part of Gaurishankar Conservation Area from where two rivers Sun Kosi and Tama Kosi originate.

At the top of the hill you can visit the shrine of Kalinchowk Bhagwati (a Hindu Goddess) which is surrounded by metal tridents and bells and the snowy spires of Gaurishankar and other Himalayan peaks rearing majestically in the background. Kuri Village is the place where we stay which lies at a height of 3200m. On winter, you will likely see the village covered with snow & that is a good news for snow adventurers. You can hit the slopes of Kalinchowk & have fun sliding down.

Our itinerary is designed to focus solely on the Skiing hence we will be directly driving up to Kalinchowk. However, if you are interested in hiking as well you can inform us 7 days prior to the trip and adjustments can be made to suit your preferences so that you can have the best experience.

The Trekking Day

The day usually begins between 6.30 am and 7.30 am, with breakfast. During breakfast, the crew members make up the loads for the porters. You often start hiking by 7:30 am, though we wait for the sun to warm the air at higher altitudes.

The pace for the day is set at a lower speed. Instead, you will have time to become aware of everything around you and to enjoy it. Our guides are excellent timekeepers but cannot make you rush over the mountains!

The afternoon walk follows a similar pattern to the morning; it is often shorter, and your lodge is usually reached between 4 pm and 5 pm. There is plenty of time to relax or explore the surrounding area until the evening meal is served at about 6.30 pm. After dinner, there is time to chat, read or enjoy a game of cards with our crew. Most members are asleep by 9 pm.

We provide a highly experienced team of IFMGA/UIAGM guides, assistant guides if required, cook and kitchen staff, rope fixing team, high-altitude workers, and liaison officers. Our team is committed to ensuring your safety and satisfaction during your adventure.
