BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE ON TREK
You need to make sure that the weight of your personal equipment packed into your trekking duffel bag to a maximum of 33 pounds.
A TYPICAL DAY
While on trek, our walking hours are governed by the sun. Depending on the day ahead, breakfast is taken not long after the sun has risen (and sometimes well before). The morning's hike is around 3 to 4 hours, before stopping for lunch. We walk for a further 2 to 4 hours, and attempt to reach our camping place by mid to late afternoon. After setting up camp or checking into our lodge, there is usually time to rest or to explore, prior to the evening meal, at around 7 p.m. As the nights are typically cold, most people opt to brush their teeth and hop into their warm sleeping bags.
For the majority of our trekking trips our overseas agents supply roomy two-man tents with protective groundsheets. An eating tent, cook's tent, latrine tent, stools, plates, cutlery etc. are all provided.
You will need to obtain a visa for the trips we are offering. Please see each individual trip itinerary or call us for further details.
We accept credit cards, personal and cashiers checks and wire transfers for your deposit and final balance payments.
