Best time visit for the climb is April and May. Overland journey in Tibet is best from early May to middle of October. The snow condition in the high passes in the Himalayan in winter, and rain in the monsoon (July to August) are deterent factors for the overland journey in Tibet. We suggest you to avoid travel in the first week of May due to long holiday (May-day).
Nepali climbing Sherpa is basically a high altitude staffs to accompany and assist members in their climbing. He is not a tour guide nor a mountain guide by definition. He is a professional high altitude assistant who has been in the mountain several times and does the job for his livelihood. He should be considered as assistant to help member to show the trail and help prepare camps and other logistics arrangement. His English is adequate to the extent of normal communication but not very proficient in English or other foreign language as such. He does what he is instructed to do in normal circumstances. It is best to establish rapport with him and the base camp staffs in the very beginning of the expedition. They value friendship as one of the most important element in their life.
