    • Do I need special travel insurance for trekking in Nepal?

      Yes. Our company only covers insurance for our team members. We recommend you buy a travel insurance in your country. Make sure your travel insurance covers adventure activities over a certain altitude (4000 m) and covers emergency medical as well as helicopter rescue and evacuation.

      Most importantly, if you are trekking in the mountainous region of Nepal, then you should plan ahead about possible challenges, especially altitude sickness, ill related health issues, accidents, flight delays etc. In such cases, the only possible way out of the mountains is helicopter rescue. So, we recommend you to have a travel insurance policy that covers the helicopter evacuation cost and medical services in hospitals while trekking in Nepal.

    • Do I need any extra documents?

      All you need is a copy of your travel insurance, a copy of your passport and 2 passport size photos while travelling in Nepal. You are required to bring photos for trek permits.

      For more details please read “terms and conditions”.

    • Can I use credit cards in the places I visit during the trip?

      Most places on the trekking route don't accept credit cards. So we highly recommend you to convert currencies into Nepalese Rupees or withdraw money from ATMs in Kathmandu before going to trek. Also, note that money exchangers do not accept credit cards in Nepal. Besides, few shops in Kathmandu accept credit cards for your purchases.

    Preparation and Fitness Level

    • What should be my preparation and fitness level for this climbing expedition?

      You don’t need any special kind of technical skill or prior climbing experience for Yala Peak Expedition. Having prior experience and knowledge of using climbing equipment certainly helps, however this peak is suitable for all beginner climbers as well as an experienced one. Yala Peak is not a technical peak, and our climbing guide provides basic pre ice climbing training in Base Camp on using climbing gears like ice pick, ropes, harness and crampons. If you are a fit, healthy person and have good stamina required for a long day climbing, then you can trek and summit Yala Peak. During this trip, you hike to higher altitude which is more strenuous than lower altitude due to lower oxygen level, decreased air pressure and density in these regions. So, we suggest you do regular physical exercise, running or jogging activities to enhance your fitness level and keep yourself in good health condition. To enjoy your trip to the fullest, you can start doing an hour of aerobic exercises 3 to 4 times per week for 2-3 months, before the trek commences. This will surely enhance your stamina and endurance required for the trek. With sheer determination, courage and mental strength, you can accomplish this climbing expedition successfully. Note: For aspiring trekkers with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease, we highly encourage you to inform us or consult a doctor before the trip.

    • Do I need any prior climbing experience ?

      This expedition involves trekking as well as climbing with all the expedition equipment. Though previous climbing experience certainly helps yet no prior experience is required for this peak climbing. However, anyone with knee, ankle, heart or lungs pre medical history needs to seek medical consent before considering this climbing trip. Moreover, our climbing Sherpa guide will organize a basic climbing training session on required climbing skills and use of climbing equipment during the trip.

    • Can I rent climbing equipment from your company?

      YES, you can rent the climbing equipment at the additional cost of USD 200 per person. You will require the following equipment for Island Peak expedition.

      • 1 Pair plastic shell mountaineering boots with high altitude liners
      • 1 Pair of crampons (steel, no aluminum).
      • 1 Alpine climbing harness.
      • 1 Mountaineering axe with leash (sized properly for your height)
      • 1 Ascender (right or left handed as appropriate)
      • 1 Belay device (Black Diamond ATC or ATC Guide are good options)
      • 2 D-Shaped locking carabiners
      • 2 Non-locking carabiners
      • 1 Pair expedition style gaiters (ensure fit over your boots)
      • Neck gaiter
      • Ski goggles (optional)
      • Climbing helmet (optional)

    Accomodation and Communication

    • What kind of Hotel can I expect in Kathmandu?

      We use three star hotel accommodations in Kathmandu. You will be accommodated in a standard room on a twin sharing basis that includes breakfast during your stay. Furthermore, if you need to stay extra nights in the hotel, we can arrange it as you wish.

    • What sort of accommodation conveniences are available during this climbing trip?

      During the trek, we use tea houses/lodges for our meals and overnight stay. Usually, tea houses are managed by local families. The accommodation can be very basic, and functional. The rooms are clean, single/double rooms or a dormitory that include mattress, quilt or blanket for your convenient stay. Having your own sleeping bag is a good alternative to sleep comfortably as well as for hygienic reasons.

    • What type of toilet/bathroom facilities are available in the teahouses/guesthouses?

      You can find western style flushing toilets as well as adjacent squat toilets in the teahouses/guesthouses. Mostly, the bathrooms are not attached to the individual rooms and are shared.

    • Where do we go toilet along the trail?

      You can use the toilet facilities provided by guest houses along the trail. Otherwise, if you arrive in places without guesthouses or public toilet in those regions during the trek, then you need to find some privacy and experience outdoor toilet adventure.

    • Are hot showers/wash facilities available during this climbing trip?

      Well, it depends on where you stay. Most tea houses in the lower mountain region provide hot showers at considerable cost. At higher elevation, the water gets frozen most of the time. So, you can get bucket showers at a price USD 2-5 for each bucket.

    • Are there any laundry services available on this trip?

      Some tea houses provide laundry services in the Langtang region. However, we recommend you pack enough clothes for this trip and wash them after returning back to Kathmandu.

    • Can I charge my electronic gadgets during the trek?

      Yes. There are tea houses and lodges that provide charging facility for electronic gadgets upon paying extra fee.

      Note: The power plugs and sockets used in Nepal are type C, D and M. The standard voltage and frequency of electricity in Nepal is 230 V and 50 Hz respectively. This means if your electronic appliances state ‘INPUT: 100-240 V, 50/60 Hz’, you can used to recharge in every country all over the world. Otherwise, make sure you bring universal travel adapter that is compatible for all kinds of devices in the trek.

    • Are there any means of communication and internet access during this climbing trip?

      Yes, there are telephones services and 3- G coverage available in most places. Also, our trekking guide has a cell phone from which you can make an International call. So, we suggest you buy a local sim card, Ncell, in Kathmandu and use it for communication and using the internet en route.

    Foods and Drinking Water

    • What kind of food can I expect during this climbing trip?

      We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner on this trip. Most importantly, it is mandatory for all trekkers to take breakfast and dinner at the tea house where you stay overnight. In addition, lunch will be served at tea houses enroute where you can order food as per your choice. Likewise, our professional camp cook prepares you all standard meals during your stay in tented camp before summiting Yala Peak. Usually, they provide you typical Nepali food: dal (lentils), bhat (rice) and tarkari (vegetable curry). These foods are highly nutritious and give you sufficient energy for the trek. Besides, other typical meals include delicious vegetarian foods such as pasta, noodles, french fries, boiled eggs, pancakes, omelets, toast, momo, garlic soup and many more dishes. In addition, you can have tea, coffee, hot lemon, hot chocolate and cold drinks too. Also, you can find meat dishes, but we suggest you choose vegetable dishes for health reasons.

    • Is the food in the mountain region prepared to international standard in terms of safety?

      Yes. The food provided at tea houses during the trek are very safe and hygienic. We recommend you to eat local food, vegetarian meal and avoid meat for your health reasons. Please follow the suggestions of our trekking guide when ordering food in the tea houses.

    • Is it safe to drink water in the mountainous region?

      For health concerns, it is unsafe to drink all types of natural sources of water in the mountainous region. So we suggest you drink bottled mineral water, boiled water, and use purification tablets or iodine for tap water. Another possible option is using SteriPEN for water purification. You can purchase bottled water and boiled water on the tea houses along the trail. As you sweat a lot when hiking to higher elevation you must drink plenty (3.5-4.5 liters) of fluid each day. (Here fluid refers to drinking water, hot drinks and soups). So make sure you are hydrated well to avoid altitude sickness and muscle cramps in the trek.

    • Is there any problem regarding foods for vegetarians during this climbing trip?

      This is not a problem at all because mostly the mountain tea houses serve vegetarian meals. In addition, all the meals we serve during the trek include vegetarian dishes. Moreover, we highly suggest our trekkers to avoid meat dishes trek as they take a long time to digest. Also, the meat in mountain regions are not hygienic and may cause you food poisoning or health problems.

    Transportation

    Season, Weather and Temperatures

    • What is the best time to do Yala Peak Expedition?

      The following months are the best time to do Yala Peak Expedition: February, March, April, May, June, October, November, and December.

    • What is the weather and temperature like in the Langtang region?

      One of the most unpredictable elements of the Mountains is the weather. If you’re not properly prepared for the twists, turns and volatility of the conditions that can occur in this breathtaking region, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant situation. Here are some weather basics to help ensure that you come to the Himalayas as well equipped and prepared to face anything.

      Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime hours in the Langtang region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. During the day, the thermometer could reach temps as high as 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), only to dip down as low as -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F) in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the month and season.

      Spring – March / April / May / June

      Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Langtang region, although because of this, it can become somewhat crowded. One can meet many other Everest climbers during this season and base camp is full of tents. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen and the many different species of flower are visible in the lower altitude.

      During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum of 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

      July / August Through Mid-September is Monsoon Season

      This season is not really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes, below 3500 meters. In areas above 4000 meters, it rains sometimes and although it is also sometimes dry, very few people travel during this season. There are positive sides of trekking during the monsoon months as the excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it’s also the best season to avoid the crowds.

      During Monsoon, the average temperature is 22 degrees C (71.6 Degrees F), with a maximum of 30 degrees C (86 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -5 degrees C (23 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

      Autumn – End of September / October / November

      Similar to springtime, autumn in the Langtang region is also a crowded season, but it’s one of the best times to trek. While it lacks the beauty of flowers, the clear blue sky can be seen, affording incredible views from just about every angle.

      The average temperature during the fall is 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

      Winter- December/ January/ February

      Winter starts from mid December till mid February. People still like to trek in this month due to fewer crowds. View is still good but foggy so having extra days is highly recommended during this period.

      The average temperature during the winter is 10 degrees C (50 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

      The above temperature is based on outside of the guesthouse temperature. No need worry about the cold temperature as we provide the sleeping bag plus the extra blanket to make sure our clients are warm enough during the time of need.

    • What is the temperature rating of the sleeping bag that you lend to trekkers?

      The temperature rating of the sleeping bags that we provide to trekkers are about -10 degree Celsius (14 degree Fahrenheit). Also, our guides can provide you liners or extra blankets if needed.

    Health and Safety

    • What safety measures are in place? What safety equipment do your guides carry with them on trek to deal with sickness/accidents?

      Our trekking guides are highly experienced, professional and well trained for higher altitude first aid training and related problems. They can measure your oxygen level in blood using oximeters and provide first aid if needed. Our guide carries medicine and a first aid kit during the trek. Besides, our guides carry a cell phone and keep on updating about the trek in our head office Kathmandu every day. If you deal with sickness or accidents, our guide will accompany you throughout the trek and ensure your safety and wellness. In case of emergency, our guide will manage helicopter rescue for your medical treatment in Kathmandu. However, the cost of helicopter charter is solely borne by trekkers.

      Make sure that your insurance policy covered medical expenses and emergency helicopter rescue in high altitude regions above 4,000 m; otherwise the cost is expensive in the mountain region. Only if you have purchased a valid travel insurance policy that covers helicopter charter and medical evacuation, then you can claim for reimbursement with your travel insurance company. In that case, we can help you with providing money receipts for your claim.

    • What immunizations will I need?

      Vaccinations are not mandatory for this trip. Still, we recommend you are vaccinated against diphtheria TB, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, *malaria, typhoid, polio and tetanus for your safety. We suggest a dental check up prior to the trek and be aware of your blood group type. Likewise, if you have any pre-existing medical conditions we recommend you to inform us while booking the trip.

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

      Well, it depends on your sickness level. If you get sick at a higher altitude, you need to descend at lower altitude and take rest (3-7 days) for recovery. You can discuss with your guide about your health condition and take necessary measures. Your health matters, so you can take a rest until recovery and catch up with the next group.

    Trip Departure and Extension

    • I would like to extend my holiday, any recommendations?

      Yes. There are so many options and choices available to extend your holiday before or after the trek. Please visit our website for more information about treks and tours in Nepal, India, Bhutan and Tibet.

    • Can I add extra days to my climbing trip?

      Certainly, you can add extra days during the trek. You need to pay an extra cost that includes additional cost to cover food, accommodation, guides and porters. This option is more convenient and feasible for a private trip. On the other hand, if you are in a group trek, this option is often limited and should be arranged properly. So we highly encourage you to ask us in advance or talk with your guide or trekking group member so that we do our best to manage it accordingly.
