Detail Itinerary

1. Is there any chance of a flight delay either in Kathmandu and Lukla?

The primary mode of transport between Kathmandu and Lukla is the twin otter. This aircraft is fairly dependable. Sometimes adverse weather conditions like heavy rain, strong wind, or thick fog may lead to flight delay and even cancellations.

Since the topography of Nepal is difficult, it’s better not to take off in those adverse weather conditions. Autumn is the most preferred trekking season in Nepal. During this time of the year, the weather is dry, clear and stable. So, this time of the year there is very a rare chance of flight delay and cancellations. You should book your international flights with a couple days of leeway just in case you have to stay on the mountain for an extra day or two.

2. What kind of hotel and accommodation can I find during the trek?

During the tre, you’ll be accommodated at the best luxury tea houses which provide the finest services. Along the trail, most of the tea houses provide single and double rooms. The rooms are well furnished and include beds, pillows, and blankets. As you gain altitude, tea houses become quite basic. You may have to share the common toilet and bathroom.

3. How about the transportation for the trek?

Depending on the nature of travel destinations, transportation varies from domestic flights to the bus, jeep, van and even mules and yaks. During the tour, only that mode of transportations is provided which helps to enhance your local experience. Also, your comfortability and safety is our major concern while traveling with us.

4. What about electricity and battery charges during the trek?

Almost all tea houses in the Everest region have electricity or solar power available. Normally we use the voltage 220-240 volts to power the appliances. You're recommended to bring two points power plug. In Everest region charging your electronic devices might cost US $ 2-3 per hour. It may cost one or two dollars more during peak season while tea houses are full.

5. How much can a porter carry?

Our one porter can carry up to 25kg while in the Everest region. Your other personal items will be stored safely at our hotel. All you need to carry is a daypack with the most necessary stuff for that day’s trek.

If you’re a vegetarian, no problem! We’re able to cater to your needs. Most tea houses also served tea and coffee. Please keep in mind that you should avoid alcohol while trekking at high altitudes.

8. What is the difference between tea house and camping treks?

Teahouse treks are the most popular mode of trekking in Nepal. In tea house trekking, you normally stay at the local lodges, eating food and sleeping in comfortable beds at the same place.

Most of the tea houses serve Nepalese, continental, and western meals, and provide solid accommodations with an attached bathroom and hot/cold showers. One of the major benefits of this trek is you can hike at your own pace. Also, you’ll get a chance to meet and experience the lifestyle of the local people.

Camping treks are the classic style of trekking, especially in the remote regions of Nepal. This type is fully supported by team members with supplies of all necessary logistics.

During this trek, our cook will make delicious, fresh, hygienic meals every day. It is the best way to take the experience of being in nature by spending your nights in a tent under the stars.

9. How will I spend my days during the trek?

Days on the trail are designed in a way that allows you to fully enjoy your walk. Normally, the day begins early in the morning, around 6:30 am with a hot, fresh breakfast. After breakfast, you’ll pack your daypack and head towards the trail. After 3-4 hours of hiking, we’ll stop for lunch around midday. Normally, after taking the lunch break, you’ll have shorter afternoon trek and soon reach the final destination of the day. The rest of the day is free for exploring the place and relaxing. Dinner is normally served around 7:00 pm.

10. How long do I spend each day on the trail?

Be ready and make sure you pack your comfortable hiking boots. It is estimated you’ll be walking six to seven hours each day.

11. What is altitude sickness and how can I prevent?

Altitude sickness is caused by insufficient oxygen in the blood. This causes dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath. Normally, it occurs for many people at the height starting at 8,000 feet (2,500 meters) above the sea level.

Everyone is susceptible to experiencing altitude sickness. It doesn’t matter your age, gender or weight. It can affect the fittest and healthiest traveler, so take extra precautions.

You must know your own limitations and consult your physician beforehand.

To prevent from altitude sickness you can follow these simple tips:
● Drink lots of water and stay hydrated. You should be drinking at least 6-8 glasses of water per day.
● Participate in mild activities your first few days of the trek. Walk slowly and take it easy. Don’t overdo it, and listen to your body.
● Avoid alcoholic beverages and meat.
● Before you go you must consult your physician. Your physician may advise you and prescribe you an altitude sickness tablet.

12. What about Travel Insurance?

While trekking in Nepal it is compulsory to obtain travel insurance. In the Everest region, most of the trekkers face the problem of high altitude sickness and diarrhea. In severe cases, it’ll require immediate evacuation to proper medical facilities. Make sure that your insurance also covers emergency medical treatment and emergency evacuations.

It is strongly recommended to include cancellation, loss of baggage, and other expenses that might arise as a result of the loss, damage, injury, delay, or inconvenience occurring to the client.

13. How can I respect local cultures?

You need to respect the local culture, as traveling is not a right it is a privilege. If you travel, you need to respect the country/village you're visiting. This will make others happy and you'll also have a more enjoyable time. Research the area before to understand if any actions are offensive, and observe others to further understand how you should act.

Also, when you fit in with the local culture, then you'll be treated much nicer. Along with these positives, you'll also actually enjoy feeling a part of the area you're visiting. It especially helps to learn some of the language before your trek. Thus, participating and respecting local culture should be a part of your traveling.

14. What kind of sleeping bag and down jacket do I need to bring?

It can always get chilly due to the altitude. During the autumn season, the temperature can drop below zero at night.

The precise temperature rating of sleeping bag will depend on the time of the year you're trekking at. But to be on the safe side, you need to bring down sleeping bag rated to -15 degree Celsius. This will handle everything the mountain can throw at you winter.

15. Do they have the heater in the lodge during the trek?

Most of the tea houses of Everest region has a communal area or a dining room where everyone gathers to eat. Usually, this room will have a stove/fire to provide you some warmth.

16. What about drinking water and do I need to bring purification tablet?

Bottled water can be purchased throughout the trail. However, we discourage trekkers from purchasing the bottles as it increases the amount of waste. Instead, we strongly recommend bringing a refillable water bottle, as boiled water will be provided with every meal.
