Frequently Asked Questions
What about Altitude Sickness?
Having concerns about AMS is very natural and it is unfortunately unpredictable. Even the experienced could struggle to get over 5,000m if they get ill. We have however designed our itinerary to help us best acclimatise. This combined with walking slowly, drinking lots and eating well all give you the best possible chance.
How fit do I really need to be and what skills do I require?
The fitter you are the more you will enjoy it, and the more chance you'll have of getting to the top. Being able to complete 2-3 days of big hill walks in the UK is a good gauge that you're ready. You can join us for a 2 day International Trekking Training weekend (Guiding Only) to help build this fitness.
What Technical Kit do I require?
There is no technical kit required for this trip. All you need is a good sleeping bag but this can also be hired in Nepal.
What about the Food and Accommodation?
The food in Nepal is fab. Expect a lot of rice, noodles and vegetables, but you can often get pasta, chips and spring rolls too. If you have specific allergies or dietary requirements it may be worth researching what's on offer before committing. Eating well throughout is key to success on such an expedition. Our accommodation whilst on the trek will be teahouses.
