Your journey begins weeks and months before you arrive in Kathmandu. Plan and prepare well. Once you've booked with me, I'll be sending you training advice and ideal preparation schedules, but I've created a great little ebook report for your download on the right side of this page.
This trek caters for all levels of fitness. Suffice to say, the fitter you are, the more off-the trail places you'll have the energy to visit. We'd label the main trek route moderate demand, so more than moderate fitness is best. This includes cardio vascular and strength training, particularly in knees, quads and lower back areas. You'll see more about this on our blog.
Over 47 trips, 350 individuals from youth at 12 years of age all the way through 110Kg people and those up to 80 years have successfully ascended the Himalayas with us to the two highest trekking peaks in the world. And yet, some - either mentally or physically don't adapt well to altitude and have been unable to get past a certain altitude. Nevertheless, everyone gets to the Himalayas, and there's a million things to do, places to see other than those two trekking peaks. We monitor acclimatisation with blood oxygen meters and have back up facility to make sure, everyone is perfectly safe.
There is a gear list provided on the right side of this page. You'll see many different lists but the important thing is to note that most of the really expensive trekking gear is available in Kathmandu - very cheap and good quality. Boots and underwear are essential to be pre worn so that they are well comfortable before you begin 14 days away from boot makers or chaffing experts....
