Altitude is a dangerous friend if treated with disrespect. We've never had a problem because we err toward the safer acclimatisation rules. This takes some planning but we want to enjoy the environment not fight with it. For those at risk we even recommend the DIAMOX pills as a prophylactic
Although we can handle up to 14 people, we prefer 1 or 2 people. This increases trip flexibility and opportunity. Group dynamics are great up in the Himalayas because we all have a common goal. However, there can be significant differences in physical capacity and therefore pace.
Time of Year
We have a team on the ground in Nepal for your trek 365 days a year. We can, if you prefer to do the trek sans Chris, arrange everything for you at no cost. Our guide, DAWA comes highly recommended and we're happy to link you to our other clients who've managed great adventures with Dawa as their guide.
Bring your kids. One parent one child, minimum age is 8 years old. Not recommended for both parents to do the trek with children, but one parent one child is a lifetime memory.
Your costs for the trip will be from arrival at Kathmandu airport to return to Kathmandu airport including internal flights, food, accomodation and warm trekking gear. You will pay for your morning and afternoon snacks, extras, alcohol, tips, toilet paper, soap and delicious massages when you get back after the trek.
Nepal has a wild life jungle with the usual safari walks and elephant rides that's quite magnificent. There are also adrenalin opportunities such as hang gliding, white water rafting and ice climbing schools. You name it we'll help you find it and get to it. (your cost)
Insurance and Flights
You'll need standard travel insurance as there are no use of ropes for adventure or climbing. This insurance must cover evacuation in case of illness and adjustment to international flight schedule should weather cause your return from the mountain to be delayed at all. We always allow 2 days buffer for this but insurance is always wise.
