If you would like to travel independently, or with your friends, families & colleagues you are invited to choose any of the trips at your convenient timeframe for any number of people (minimum 1 & maximum 100 at a time). Cost for private trip is fixed on the basis of group size, trek area, duration and trek style, and is negotiable. We also arrange TREKS FOR SINGLE WOMAN.

For private trips, no minimum and maximum apply. There is absolutely nothing to worry about making it solo trip. We assign local guide, porters etc who you can trust your life with.

Q6. How long do we walk each day?

All our trekking programs are classified into THREE different categories according to the level of difficulty. Soft Adventure treks are only about a week to 10 days in duration. They generally don't go above 4000 meter and each day, you can expect to be walking for around 4 – 5 hours. While moderate to fairly challenging treks are longer treks that go right into high mountain country. Physically quite tiring, these involve approx 6-8 hours trekking along rocky ridges of high Himalayan peaks. Strenuous treks are longer treks that go far beyond the normal haunts of trekkers and tourists. Physically challenging, these may involve 7-9 hours trekking and likely to include unfavorable weather conditions and strenuous activities. It’s definitely not for beginners.

Q7. What is GAP trek?

This is an abbreviation of Guide Accommodation and Porters (GAP). This option of the trek is for those who want basic support from us. This is the most economic way to do trekking in Nepal. We provide an English speaking local Sherpa guide, book and pay for the accommodation in local lodges during trek and arrange required porters and trekkers pay for meals directly to the local lodge owner. This option works only in certain routes in Everest, Langtang and Annapurna regions where trekking routes are served by local tea house or lodges. You pay for your own meals. We take care of all expenses of our staff.

Q8. What is Tea house trek?

TH trek means tea house trek. Some of the popular trekking routes are served by lodges making it possible for you to stay at local Tea house (mountain hut) during your trek. Tea house treks are less expensive then Camping trek and are largely suitable for small group. Usually during busy seasons if private rooms in smaller villages are fully occupied you might have to sleep in dormitory. Price includes accommodation in lodges, guide, porters and all meals.

Q9. What about security during trekking?

Client’s safety is our paramount concern. All our guides and other support crew are carefully chosen for your trips. Our guides hold licenses issued by the Nepal Government. They are very honest and reliable. You will be sleeping in local tea house. You have to take sensible precautions yourself at all times. Never leave your baggage unattended and keep your lodge room locked when you go out.

Q10. What type of food is served during a trek?

During the trekking in Nepal, we provide standard breakfast; lunch and three course dinner, tea or coffee will also be included with each meal. Your guide will help with menu selection and ensure that you get the best value meals possible. Although the food is usually plentiful and delicious, you should be aware that the menu is not normally extensive. Most teahouses offer a variety of rice and noodle dishes, as well as soup and seasonal vegetables. A variety of cereals, bread and egg dishes are generally available for breakfast. There will also be plenty of snacks available such as biscuits, chocolate and soft drinks and in some areas you will find fresh fruit in season. You can buy packaged water (bottled mineral water) from local lodge and shop en route or you can also ask your guide to fill your water bottle with boiled water and treat with water purification pills.

Q11. How to get safe drinking water on the trek?

During the period of your trekking in Nepal, you will be able to buy safe hot drinks in the tea house. We recommend you to bring water purification pills. On the trail, water from the streams is safe if away from settlements.

Q12.What is the overnight accommodation like?

In cities like Kathmandu, Pokhara accommodation will be in hotels of your preference. We have a very clean charming hotel that ranges from luxury deluxe to budget hotels. While on a trek accommodation will depend on the trek style. Whilst we endeavor to stay in the best possible accommodation along the way, you should be aware that most tea houses, particularly in the smaller villages, are quite basic. The bedrooms are usually very small, the shared bathroom facilities are often outside and meals are served in a communal dining hall. Although simple, the tea houses do provide shelter and warmth and are normally run by friendly local families. Usually during busy seasons if private rooms in smaller villages are fully occupied you might have to sleep in dormitory.

Q13. How fit I need to be to trek in the Himalayas?

 You should be moderately fit, used to some regular exercise and enjoy walking in the high altitude conditions.

Q14. Do you provide any equipment while trekking?

Yes we do provide you down sleeping bags, down jackets & trekking poles during your trekking period.

Q15 Tipping included and if not, how much should I budget?

Tips are appreciated by your support team after the trip. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Some trekkers give 5 to 10% of the total tour cost as tips.

Q16. What happens in case of emergency?

In the case of a serious sickness or a casualty, which we believe will not happen; you shall be rescued by a helicopter. Since you are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred in evacuation please make sure that it is covered by your insurance before assigning for it or be prepared to pay on your own after getting back in Kathmandu. Ask your guide to arrange a runner to the nearest communication point and inform office about requirement of a helicopter. While asking for the helicopter, please send name of the sick person and give exact location from where helicopter can airlift you. Do not leave the place although you are getting better once you have ordered Helicopter.

Q17. How Should I dress during a trek?

The clothing you bring will need to allow for both the warmth of the days and the chill of the nights. While trekking during the day at lower altitudes, lightweight trekking trousers and T-shirts are recommended. It's always a good idea to carry a waterproof jacket and some warmer clothing with you though as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm. Good shoes are of great importance. They must be sturdy and comfortable. For higher altitude treks where you may have to tread snow for long hours, good boots are available for rent in Kathmandu. In view of local customs, try not to wear too skimpy or revealing clothes. Your reception by locals can vary greatly on the way you dress.

Q18. What is the best time for trekking?

The best time to trek is from October to May. The first two months of the dry season – October and November, when it is still comfortably warm – are ideal for trekking in Nepal.

December, January and February are still good months for trekking, but it can be bitterly cold at high altitudes.

Q19. Is it possible to change the lodge if it is not in order?

Yes, you can definitely change the lodge if you feel it is not in order by talking over with your guide, (provided there are other lodges with good rooms in the vicinity).

Q20. Do you reserve rooms at the lodges before or during the trek?

We accommodate trekking groups in local lodges available on the trail. As it is not possible to book the rooms days in advance, possibly, we communicate them an advance by phone or we send an assistance guider few hours ahead of the group each day to book the rooms.

Q21. Is it possible to alternate or change the day trips?

It is possible to change the day trip as per your request by consulting your guide.

Q22. Can we change the itinerary?

Depending on the prevailing situation, you can modify it to some extent after consulting with your guide.  However, the date of trek completion should always coincide with the original itinerary. You should keep in mind that this is an adventure trip into the remotest region, where many unforeseen events may contribute to the need for a change in itinerary. In such cases, we or your guide will suggest the best alternative similar to your original itinerary.

Q23. How do I book a trek with you?

After choosing the trip you wish to join, the first step is to fill up the form available here http://www.advnepaltrekking.com/book.php. 15% of deposit has to be made in order to confirm the reservation.
