Travel insurance & rescue
when traveling to the remote destination like Nepal Himalaya makes your insurance up to date. Make sure that your insurance policy covers cancellation, injury, death, loss of baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. The insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. If a client becomes ill, all hospital expenses, doctors’ fees, and repatriation costs are the client’s responsibility.
We have an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuation we pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. And the reimbursement responsibility from your insurance company is gone up to you. Be sure your policy specifically covers helicopter evacuation. Also, check that your insurance policy does not exclude mountaineering or alpinism if you are doing some climbing Trekking peak.you may have a difficult time settling a claim.
There are two good options for having proper drinking water during the trek. You can bring water purification tablets or fill your bottle for a nominal fee from the recognized and regulated “pure water” stations along the trek. As a last alternative, you can also purchase bottled water at the lodges but this is not recommended due to environment sanitation issue here in Nepal.
It is very important that you have to drink at least 3 liters of pure water daily during the trek.
The Everest Region and all the Himalayan range is stunningly beautiful but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do. Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it.

What is the weather like in Nepal?
The width of Nepal is only about 200 km on an average, but within this short distance, the altitude of the land rises from 60 m up to 8,848 m. Hence the weather depends upon the altitude of the place in Nepal. However, in general, Nepal has four climatic seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
Spring starts from March to May. The temperature of this season fluctuates between 20C to 30C (68F to 86F). Summer starts from June last to August. These are also the monsoon months with occasional evening thunderstorms and hot temperature. Autumn starts from late September and ends by November. During this period, the climate is generally dry and mild with temperature fluctuating between 20C to 30C (68F to 86F). Winter starts from December until February. The mornings and evenings are very cold while the afternoon is pretty sunny. The temperature during these months rises from 5C to 20C (59F to 68F). At higher altitudes, it is cold during the winter months.
How much money for my personal expenses?
It’s difficult to give an exact amount of money that you should bring. Costs will vary according to how much you want to spend for shopping and where and what meal items in Kathmandu (lunch& dinner) you want to enjoy. Only Nepali rupees are accepted on the trek. But, we recommend separating some amount of money for it.
For the trek, we’ll have one energetic and hospitable porter for two people. The weight limit for the trek is 10-13 kgs per person. Before the trek, we will store all our excess baggage in Kathmandu at the hotel or alternatively at our office and only take what we require on the trek.
A general rule of thumb for tipping is 10 percent from total amount you paid on your tour but permit and domestic flight cost is out of it.for both (guide and porter) if you are fully satisfied with their service. So we suggest you allocate minimum US$ 50 for Tipping. This is just a guideline and you may tip whatever/how much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trek a memorable one.
