A trekking permit is not required to visit general trekking areas such as Annapurna,
Langtang and Everest but conservation fee is levied. A trekking permit is required
to visit Nepal’s interior areas such
as Kanchanjunga, Upper Dolpo, Lower Dolpo, Simikot-Yari, Humla, Upper Mustang, Manaslu
etc. These government controlled trekking areas are technically very difficult and
challenging and the permit fee differs as per the areas and daily basis. A group
of minimum 2 people is required to apply for the permit to visit these remote areas.
Altitude & Acclimatization:
Proper acclimatization is very important and our routes are planned specifically
to allow a gradual gain in altitude with many of our treks having extra days to allow
for acclimatization. By slowly gaining height we reap the benefits of a gradual gain
in fitness and acclimatization. We offer advice about acclimatization and with the
sensible approach we take on all of our treks, anyone who is fit and healthy should
have few problems. On our climbing trips in Nepal and trekking trips in Tibet we
carry a portable altitude chamber as an extra safety precaution.
