Altitude sickness:

The more you ascend to the higher altitude, the more oxygen will be less. Normally, no traveler will be suffered from altitude sickness below 4ooo m. high. But this is not the case always. Those who lack good stamina, physical fitness, those who drink a lot and smoke will likely to suffer altitude sickness.
Mild and common symptoms include headaches (also a symptom of dehydration), low appetite, and restless sleep. More moderate symptoms include vomiting, fatigue, and diarrhea. Many compare altitude sickness to the sensations of having a hangover. Severe symptoms include blue lips and fingernails, severe difficulty breathing, poor coordination, fatigue, and drowsiness. To avoid altitude sickness, we recommend you to descend down to the lower altitude, hydrate sufficiently and maintain nutrition. In case you have these above mentioned symptoms, inform our guide since he will be far more experienced than you.

Travel insurance:

It is required to have travel insurance that covers your rescue in case you have suffered any kind of sickness in high altitude including altitude sickness. We hope everything will be fine during the trekking days but sometimes unforeseen circumstances may occur. Many standards policies cover you for trekking to high altitudes, such as on the Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit Trek, but it is very important to check this before you go. Here is a list of insurance companies that we have collected information on (however it is your responsibility to confirm that the information on our website is correct):
We recommend companies such as Insure and Go, Virgin Money, and The Post office, as they currently cover the altitudes of all our treks.
For more information please see our information section.

Tea house trekking:

Tea house trekking takes you to the mountain where you stay every overnight at a guest house. Food and accommodations are provided according to your choice at the guest house.

Carrying my stuff when trekking:

We will employ our porters to carry up to 12kgs of weight for each trekker. This is included in the price of each trek. We provide 1 porter for 2 trekkers in accordance with the guidelines set out by the International Porter Protection Group. If you would like more weight to be carried, please let us know. In general, 12kg is more than sufficient. If you have unnecessary stuff that is not required during the trekking days in the mountain, you can leave it at the hotel till you come back. They will store it safely.
Normally each porter will carry 2 people's rucksacks and he will simply tie them together using rope (this does not harm any of the rucksacks). If you are trekking with a friend or loved one, and there is space in one rucksack for both your possessions, then please feel free to share the same rucksack but please ensure that it weighs less than 24kg.
It is helpful if you do not put things that you may need during the day in your large rucksack as you will not be walking with your porter at all times.

Can I drink the tap water:

We don’t recommend you to drink tap water in the mountains since it is not safe. To help prevent contamination of the environment, we discourage tourists from drinking from plastic bottles especially when in the mountains. Non-plastic bottle options include:

1) Drinking boiled water from teahouses.
2) Drinking ginger and lemon tea to reduce the need for water consumption.
3) Purifying tap/river water using a chloride pump, iodine, or chlorine tablets. The taste of the tablets is not appetizing, so it is recommendable to use a dissolvable vitamin tablet to add flavor.

How old does a trekker have to be to go trekking:

  • All trekkers under 18 must be accompanied by a friend/family member who is over 18 years of age.
  • Moderate to strenuous treks: minimum age is 14
  • Easy treks: minimum age is 12-11
