Here's a few answers to most common Questions asked by the customers.

Who can climb a 6000m trekking peak and who can obtain a climbing permit?

There is only one restriction for obtaining permits for 6000m peaks, the government of Nepal does not allow climbing permits to be issued to a climber who is below the age of 16. Beyond that restriction any climber with appropriate fitness and skills can attempt a 6000 meter in the Himalaya. However, our policies for accepting clients on these peaks require that the client has as list experience of hiking and some knowledge of rock & Ice climbing.

Why should I visit Nepal for a 6000 M peak climbing?

For those seeking the experience of climbing a 6000m peak, Nepal should be at the top of your list of countries to visit. With the rich variety of flora and fauna, the everlasting smiles of the rural Nepalese, the hospitality of the village communities, the fantastic climatic and geographical conditions, the cultural, traditions and linguistic diversity and the rich cultural spirit which represents a unique blend of Buddhism Hinduism and some others Nepal is the adventure capital of the world. With 1500 trekking peaks above 6000 m and 8 of the 14 above 8000m peaks in the world, it is fair to say that your mountaineering ambitions can be taken to a new level here in Nepal.

What type of food can I expect in High Camps?

At the high camp, we utilize freeze-dried packaged foods. They offer a variety of high-quality flavors and are easy to prepare at altitude. Your personal climbing Sherpa will melt sufficient ice for hot water, tee, coffee, and a variety of juices. At high camp and camp one, it may be possible to fresh food from base camp.

What type of accommodation should I expect during the trip?

In Kathmandu, we provide you with your requested category of hotel accommodation and will send you to a quiet part of Thamel. During the climbing and trekking, we provide tea house accommodation and camping at base camp and above camps.

How to acclimatize for 6000 M climb?

There are several options for acclimation during your 6000m Peak climbing. If you have time we always advise you to attempt some base camp, or viewpoint before starting to climb trekking peak. Most of the 6,000-meter climbing will have an acclimatization period where you will reach base camp and the higher camps.

What are the details on food and meals during the trip?

On popular trekking trails, we utilize lodges/guesthouses (teahouses) the meals will be provided by these lodges. Menu meals are often available including soups, noodles, rice, and some other dishes. On certain 6,000-meter trekking routes, lodges and guest houses may be limited, or not available. In these instances, accommodations will be via tents and the meals will be provided by our staff. In these instances, meals will be prepared on the route with canister stoves or natural fires. While in base camp our peak climbing cooks will prepare meals. Above base camp, the meals will be provided by our climbing Sherpa.

How much tips should I give to the guide, porter and driver?

While tipping is not mandatory it is a nice way of showing your appreciation to the people who have helped you enrich your holiday experience. It all depends on how far you are pleased and satisfied with their services. There is no fixed amount, but many of our clients offer 8-10 percent of the total tour price as tips.

All your departure is guaranteed to run?

YES, all our trips are guaranteed to run. We never cancel the trip due to not having enough participants; we can arrange the trip for one person as well as a private trip at very minimal additional cost. Please inquire about this during the time of booking.

Will there be a place to store items/clothing not required for the trek?

The hotel in Kathmandu does provide free storage services. So you can leave all your items that are not required for the trekking at your hotel.

Do you use yaks/porters on the trek or do we carry all of our own gear?

Whilst on the trek, our porter will take care of your luggage. All you need to carry is your small day bag for your personal belongings like camera, water bottle, sun cream, etc.

If I am sick can I continue the trek next day after a day rest?

It totally depends on the level of your sickness. Once you are sick at a higher altitude you need to rest at a lower altitude and it at least needs 3 days to a week for the recovery. If you are in private or solo trips you can discuss and decide with a guide depending on your health status. If you were in-group then this option would be limited so please make sure you discuss with a guide and catch up the group later on.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellation notice is required, a minimum of 20 days prior to trip departure. If the reason is valid the Trip shall then be termed as canceled and the cancellation charge of 30% of the trip amount would be deducted from the advance paid.

What is the drinking water facility in the mountain?

Bottled water is easily available at the lodges and teahouses, which you can buy at the cost of USD 1 at lower elevations to USD 3 to higher elevation per liter. If you are planning to drink normal water all the way during the trek, purifying water with any sort of purification tablets or drops is a must. You can bring your own purifier or can purchase it in Kathmandu.

I am a Vegetarian, is that a Problem?

No problem at all because mostly, the lodges serve the vegetarian meals. We always recommend our clients to eat vegetarian meals to avoid food poisoning, eating heavy meals and non- vegetarian meals at the high altitude is not really safe for the stomach.

Where we go along toilet during the trial?

In most cases, you can use the toilet provided by the tea houses/lodges on the trail but normally in case of emergency, you just do toilet along the trail wherever you find privacy.

What are the toilet facilities in the tea house /guesthouse?

Most of the tea houses do have western-style flushing toilets however in higher elevation you could find the squat toilets made of either a ceramic basin on the ground or few planks precariously positioned over a hole in the ground which is always outside of the room.

Do I need any extra document?

Please bring a copy of your travel insurance, a copy of your passport, and 3 photos (passport size) with you for your trip to Nepal. You would need photos for permits.
