FAQ

What type of vehicles are used for transfers ? Are they air-conditioned ?

We only use Petrol-fueled new models of cars and coaches for all surface transfers, in our endeavour to minimize the negative impacts on the environment .

If passengers have booked sightseeing tours in your city, are they provided with vouchers/pick-up information ?
As we have only organised tours for our clients, they do not need vouchers for their sightseeing.
How are the passengers assisted in their transfer ?
Our executive meets them in the lobby of the hotel in which they are staying by prior appointment. In case personal contact fails, our representative leaves a message in the key-hotel mentioning the details of their departure, such as, departure details of their onward flight, where to meet, whom to meet and when to meet.

On arrival at the airport, are passengers escorted to the check-in counter and assisted with check-in ?
At the airport, our representative assists them in baggage handling and check-in formalities for the final departure. Finally, he/she bids them good bye.

How fit do I have to be to trek ?
If you enjoy a day's walking and can walk up and down hills, you will be fine. If you participate in any sport, you will be fine. The trek has an easy grading although everyone will be out of breath at times. We would suggest some program of exercise starting one to two months prior to your arrival in Nepal. Step classes/stair master best prepare one for the hills.
How long do we trek per day ?
Up to a maximum of 5-6 hours a day with lunch breaks along the trail.

What kind of food will be served while on trek ?
A general idea will be :

Breakfast : Cereal/Muesli/Porridge/Eggs/Tomatoes/Toast/Jam/Honey/Tea/Coffee.
Lunch :
Salad/Spring Rolls/Pizza/Quiche/Local cuisines.
Dinner :
Soup/Curry/Pasta/Dumplings/Vegetables/Cake/Fruit Fritters/Local cuisines.
Will I need to be inoculated ?
Consult your local doctor who will have an updated list. However, most important are Gamma Globulin (for Hepatitis) and Tetanus. Do not go over the top otherwise you will end up cholera, rabies, malaria tablets and many others. In these cases, it is always worth talking to two doctors and then using you own judgement.

What happens in the event of an emergency ?
On trek, a helicopter will be summoned which will take a maximum of 6 hours to reach you. You will then be flown with your guide to Kathmandu where you will be met by our office staff and taken to the International Hospital. If necessary, an onward International medical flight will be arranged. Anywhere else on the trip, you will be taken by road to Kathmandu where the same process will occur. Ensure that your insurance policy covers you for such unlike eventualities.

How hot / cold does it get ?
As general rule, it is hot enough during the days, so wear an open-neck shirt with shorts and you will not be cold. During the evening, it gets cold so, long trousers and a pullover and / or jackets are required.

Should I bring my own medicine?

Please consult your local doctor and follow his advise. However, if you are taking any particular medicines, it would be best to bring these with you. A personal medical kit is highly recommended though.

Do I have to be Insured?
Yes, it is essential that you are fully insured. Proof of insurance may be requested after your arrival in Kathmandu. We recommend that helicopter evacuation is also included. Insurance is not readily available in Nepal.
