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 6000m 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.

Will some body come to pick me up at the airport open my arrival?

Yes, our airport representative will be there to greet you at the airport. S/he will be displaying Mount Adventure Holidays signboard outside the airport terminal. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel in our tourist vehicle.

Can I obtain the visa for Nepal upon on arrival at the airport?

YES, you can obtain the visa easily upon your arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu (Tourist Visa with Multiple Entries for 15 days can be obtained by paying USD 30 or equivalent foreign currency. Similarly, Tourist Visa with Multiple Entries for 30 days and 90 days can be obtained by paying USD 50 and 125 respectively. Please bring 2 copies of passport size photos.)

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.

What sort of accommodation can I expect in Kathmandu in Trekking?

We use standard rooms at three-star hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes, tea houses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you Ace the Himalaya sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping equipment. The lodges in trekking routes usually provide single and double rooms, or occasionally a dormitory-style. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen, which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in teahouses provides essential and basic facilities and is always outside the room.

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.

Is there a possibility of getting separate rooms for the trip? If so how much extra will this cost?

During the trek, we will try our best but normally the lodges have twin sharing and dormitory styled rooms instead of a single room. The lodges will provide a private room for one person when the room is free and additional cost is not required. In Kathmandu, USD 50 Per Room per Night would be added as a single supplement fee. The single supplements are always guaranteed in Kathmandu but not in the mountain especially during the peak time.

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 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 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 trekking, we provide tea house accommodation and camping at base camp and above camps.

The weather forecast says rain/clouds/snow in Lukla on our Flight Day. Are we in for a rough flight?

When you are up in the mountains in Nepal, we would suggest you to be ready for anything. Weather forecasts for Lukla are never correct and different sources will give you different information. If it is a really bad day in terms of weather, the airlines will themselves cancel the flight and you might have to wait till the weather clears. Yes, flying in high altitude is never easy, even on a clear sunny day, the plane might face turbulence because of the wind blowing from the mountains. But overall the flight to Lukla is very exciting and it’s an experience that you will never forget.

All your departure is guaranteed to run on this trip?

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.

Do I need to tip my guide and porters? How much would that be?

This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 20 to USD 1000 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you spend a minimum of 10% of your total trip cost for tipping the entire local staff, the ratio of tipping guide and porter will be given to you at the pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu before starting the trek.

Can I add extra days to my trekking trip?

A holiday should never be about making it to the final point quickly. Along your trek, we can add days at your request with additional costs to cover guides, porters, accommodation, and food Please consult with your guide and he will update our office in Kathmandu and we can make the arrangements accordingly. If you are on a private or solo trip it would be possible as your itinerary is very flexible whereas if you were in-group then this option would be limited so please make sure you discuss with your group and guide and your guide will update us accordingly.

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.

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.

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 on a 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 the guide and catch up the group later on.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellation notice is required, a minimum of 30 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.

How much additional money do I need per day?

It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu and during the trek you can allocate USD 10 to USD 15 for lunch and a dinner. USD 10 to USD 15 per person a day will be enough to buy bottles of water, chocolates, pay for the hot shower, and a few drinks during the trekking.

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.
