4. Guides and porters

A porter is allowed to carry 15 kg. Please arrange your load accordingly. Please remember that the 15 kg includes the porter’s personal equipment as well.
5. Tea house treks
The treks run in Nepal are mostly Tea House trek, which means
the trekker overnights in a local tea house with breakfast and dinner. Lunch is en route in a tea house. Camping is out of date except some remote areas where there are no tea houses and it is very expensive.
6. Day on trek
The porter will carry the main luggage and you will carry a day pack which will contain things you need on the way, as you will not be able to reach your main luggage while you are walking. The guide will be with you.
7. Basic travel plan
On strenuous treks like Everest trek starts with an air trip to Lukla. The flights are weather prone and subject to cancellations. You should have at least 4 to 5 days in hand between flight Lukla/Kathmandu and your international departure. Please also ensure your visa is valid till date of your final departure.
You must have an insurance bought in your home country which must include emergency helicopter rescue.
Basic equipment like sleeping bag etc. can be hired in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Your official agent will give you a detailed list at the time of booking. Trekking boots are to be brought from your own. Please ensure that the boots are well broken so that you have no problem walking.
10. Entrance fee
An entrance fee is levied in Annapurna and Everest areas plus places on hike. Your agent will advise you on this at the time of booking.
11. Daily expenses
It is advisable to pay the trekking agency a flat price including meals and overnight stay during the trek. As prices of hotels and meals change from area to area the cost will change accordingly. Other
personal expenses like tea, snacks, tips etc. are payable in Nepalese currency only. Hence please have sufficient funds in local currency.
