Our day on trek begins soon after dawn (and sometimes before) with early morning
tea or coffee followed by a bowl of water for washing. After packing kit bags breakfast
will be ready. The morning walk usually takes 3 to 4 hours and you are free to walk
at your own pace, exploring villages and admiring the scenery before stopping for
lunch. After lunch we walk for around 3 hours to arrive in camp by 3 or 4 pm. Now
there is time to relax. The three course evening meal is served in the mess tent
at around 7pm followed by hot chocolate, tea and coffee. Generally we are in our
sleeping bags by 9pm, looking forward to tomorrow's new adventure.
Group sizes are kept small, to reduce the impact on the environment and to enable
us to provide a more personal service. The maximum Group size on most of our treks/tours
is 12 and the minimum size is 2.
Food & Health:
We have set very high hygiene standards on our treks both in preparing meals and
when camping as this becomes an important aspect when travelling through remote places.
We have initiated training courses for our local staff covering cleanliness, hygiene
and conservation. On camping treks our cooks provide plentiful amounts of varied
and tasty food using fresh ingredients whenever possible. Meals are usually a mix
of local and European. We welcome vegetarians and make every effort to provide as
much variety as possible.
Extending Your Stay:
It is possible to extend your stay, for a few days or for longer periods. We offer
generous discounts when you combine two or more of our treks.
Tailoring of Itinerary:
If the dates do not fit or you want to personalize the itinerary we can tailor the
holiday to suit your precise requirements. If there are at least two people we would
be delighted to prepare a personalized itinerary. All we need is an outline of your
plans the rest will be upon us.
Physical preparation is the single-best way to get more enjoyment out of your trek.
The better shape you're in, the easier the trek will be. However, even people in
the best physical condition sometimes get ill on the trail, and anyone can get altitude
We provide a kit bag (for your goods to be carried by porter) and at
teahouses you will have foam mattresses. If you are on camping trek, company
provides the mattresses, tents etc. You may bring your own down jacket and
sleeping bag or you may purchase (one quarter of price in KTM) or hire for
around US$ 1 per item daily. Do not come without “well walked in boots”-poor
