FAQs

You need no technical skill or experience to accomplish this trek, however a general check up on heart and lungs is a good idea. Most days on this trek are do-able for anyone with the ability to walk 6-8 hours a day with a light rucksack. Some days are more intense than the others. A good exercise regime for a few weeks prior to the trek will serve you well. Be prepared for basic and cold conditions. Budget for drinking water or carry water purifying tablets. Trekking alone may be cheaper but it can get challenging and a group provides motivation as well as security. Altitude sickness is fairly common when trekking altitudes and the good ratio of leaders and porters serves the group well when someone falls sick. Our groups sizes range from 2 to 12 persons.
 
Please note that most hotel check in timings are post 2 p.m. and checkout timing is 10 a.m.
Should you want to secure your room upon arrival earlier than this, we recommend that you take an extra night or check on early check-in or late check-out charges with us.
