Information

Additional Options:

We plan with one porter per 2 clients. If you require additional support, you can book an additional porter for the trip to lighten your load. A porter carries your bag pack for you and no more (20kg max. They don't often speak any English. They carry two backpacks that they will strap together. But you are strictly prohibited not taking advantage of the porter. They are usually very proud people and will attempt to carry things that are just too heavy. Which is not good. You can leave your unnecessary stuffs in Kathmandu your hotel or our office that you will not need on the trek.

Have a take a small personal daypack with you. Your daypack should contain everything you need during the day but keep it as light as possible. Examples: water, some warm clothing, your camera, sunscreen, etc. Note that the luggage you hand to the porters might not be available to you during the day as they sometimes set their own pace.

+Hotel upgrade in Ktm: [65 USD for 4* hotel, 95 USD for 5* hotel per night]

If you feel like a little luxury before and after your trek, you can upgrade your hotel in Kathmandu to the 4*/ 5* category.
