Trekking Permit


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.
