Equipment

While trekking you will only have to carry a day bag with water, snacks, spare clothes and your camera. Your main bag will be moved by a porter. We ask you to limit your luggage to one bag of up to 15kg per person. It is possible to store excess luggage at your hotel in Kathmandu. We will supply you with a detailed equipment list as part of your pre-departure information pack. You will need normal walking and travelling gear as well as a sleeping bag and warm clothes. Trekking equipment is available to hire in Kathmandu.

Your Guide & Porters

Quality guides make the difference between a great trip and an unforgettable experience. Our Nepali guides are fully qualified and trained. All have many years experience of guiding trekkers in Nepal, and speak fluent English. They bring a wealth of knowledge to your journey, opening your eyes to the legends, culture, food, flora and fauna of the Himalayas. Additionally they are first aid trained and fully trained and experienced in dealing with cases of Altitude Sickness. Your luggage will be transported by porters (1 porter between 2 people). We have a robust porter protection policy to ensure porter welfare standards are adhered to.

Bad weather/ coming down early

Extra hotel nights needed for any reason outside of the guides control will be an extra cost , this can happen due to altitude sickness or very bad weather etc.

don't worry as its very reasonable averaging around $35 - $50 per night in Kathmandu
