Single rooms are not available at guesthouses and lodges except during the off-season. Most are equipped with electricity and a large lounge for the noon meal or dinner in the evening. The shower and toilet are often outside. The hot showers are generally paid. According to the regions, the lodges have separate comforts. Certain lodges are very well equipped with hot water, a bathroom, and electricity, but this is not the case for all of them.

According to the region, the comfort of the local accommodation is variable. In the east of Nepal, the inhabitants have large houses of 2 or 3 floors, but without rooms, so you will be hosted in the large main room. In the north and west of Nepal, the houses are smaller but with rooms. In the houses in the village, there is no bathroom; the shower and toilet (WC) are on the outside. In the absence of a bathroom, the family will offer you hot water in a basin for your toilet.

For trekking, hiking, and expeditions requiring accommodation under a tent, we provide a tent for two people with a foam mattress for your comfort.

Individual rooms exist only in the hotels in the city, subject to availability. It is not possible to book a single room in a guesthouse, lodge, or directly with the inhabitant.

Nepal is a developing country, and the quality of the roads may be random and precarious. The roadways are heavily damaged during the monsoon rains, causing landslides or falls of stone, which entail frequent traffic congestion. The Kathmandu valley is particularly affected by the increase in road traffic. The code of the road being nonexistent and the busy traffic condition, it is strongly recommended not to self-drive.

The terrestrial movements are carried out by private transport, tourist buses, local transport, jeeps, buses, minibusses, or airplanes. The details are listed under “Cost Includes & Excludes.”

For some domestic transport, we use the airway, with the companies Yeti Airlines, Tara Airlines, Buddha Air, and Simrik Air. Generally, they work with small aircraft from 15 to 18 places.

Flights in the mountains are subject to weather conditions. It may sometimes happen that your flight gets canceled due to bad weather. In this case, the company will reschedule your flight for the next day. If there is no availability, in this case, you will be offered a route by helicopter if you want it. The difference in the cost of travel will be requested on the spot.

For your information, the European Commission has included all Nepalese companies on the black list of companies banned from flying within the European Union. To this day, no Nepalese company is not flying in Europe.

Note: Lukla Flights during high season are departing and returning to Ramechhap instead of Kathmandu due to ongoing upgrades at Kathmandu Airport. Its about a 4 hour drive to Ramechhap.

All our guides (mountains, high- altitude, and city) are accredited professionals by the Nepalese government and have completed training at the Nepal Academy of Tourism & Hotel Management (NATHM). Your guide is responsible for your safety and the safety of the group and its team.

Our porters are used to trekking at medium and high altitudes and come mainly from the east and the north of Nepal. The profession of the bearer is seasonal work, and then they return home to care for their farm and work in the fields. The young students are also becoming more interested in this profession in order to be able to finance their studies. Your porters are actively involved in the success of your trip; please do not hesitate to contact them; they will be delighted to share these small moments of sharing. Sometimes the lodges or guesthouses do not have enough room for everyone. In this case, your porters will stay in a neighboring house. During the Trek Under Tent, they will be staying with the inhabitants or under a large tent of cuisine altogether.

Porters deliver your luggage during the trek, and you only carry what you need for the day (bring a small backpack of 30 to 40 liters).

For porter baggage, bring a sports bag or hiking backpack of 60 to 70 liters; avoid the suitcase with wheels, especially.

The Kathmandu Valley offers rich crafts and variety. In Patan, Bhaktapur, and particularly in Bungamati, you can find objects carved in wood. In Patan and Kathmandu, there are mills for prayers, jewelry, and precious stones, especially in the district of Durbar Marg, opposite the Royal Palace. In Bhaktapur, behind the Palace, or in Kathmandu near Durbar Square, Boudhanath, you can find several shops selling religious paintings (Thankas), tissues, and shawls. Thamel, the tourist district, offers many clothing shops, musical instruments, shawls, scarves, carpets, and khukuris (Nepalese traditional curved knives).

In Nepal, most of the circuits of trekking occur in altitude. The circuits having at least one night or more in more than 3 500 m of altitude are qualified of trekking in High Mountain. This altitude can generate the symptom of acute mountain sickness. The treatment to always apply is to descent (go back) as quickly as possible to a lower altitude.

Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a syndrome of suffering, linked to a rise too fast in high altitude, at the absence of acclimation and to a personal sensitivity more or less important. Its symptoms are headache, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, general fatigue, tiredness, dizziness, balance disorder, dyspnoea and of the loss of appetite.

It is therefore a frequent disease affecting people in good health but exposed to an extreme environment of high altitude. Its incidence is variable, but increases very rapidly with altitude; it would be 15% to 2 000 meters of altitude and 60% to 4 000 meters.

This evil usually appears in the 4 to 12 hours following the arrival in altitude: it is regressing with the acclimation and disappears immediately to the descent.

Excellent

Considering the altitude, good preparation of all participants. Great weather in the mornings, bright skies and a few flakes… .some afternoon! Excellent mountain accommodation * and varied food. The goal: to have reached the frozen lakes of Gokyo at 4790m “coiled” in their altitude scenery. An extra at 4860m, ​​the 27km long Gokyo glacier! And for our two super trekkers, the Gokyo Ri at 5360m, was a real moment of exaltation with a breathtaking view of the more than 8000 snow-covered areas! Very pleasant staff, supportive, smiling and always available for walkers; We extend our gratitude to them. A special congratulations to our “Dupont and Dupond” who brightened up the trek… in red and black. “Relatively” arduous trek for the 65/70 age group – long walks but little hassles..,
