Is this trek for you?
Climbing in Nepal are relatively
technical with following well-paved
paths and local village trails throughout. The maximum altitude reached on the
trip is less than 6189 meters. By Himalayan standards this is fairly modest
elevation and the altitude issues experienced on higher elevation trek should
not be of concern to us on this trek. However, it should be noted that trekking
at altitudes above 3000 meters requires greater demands on the body than
walking at lower elevations, and is itself challenging even for fit hikers. Our
itinerary is well staged and provides for a very gradual approach to the higher
elevations encountered in the Khumbu section of your holiday. Camping is not
required on this trip and we stay each night in well-appointed lodges with
basic facilities. The trekking element of this trip is not long or sustained,
however you will need to ensure you are physically prepared for the trek and
you should be comfortable with walking for 5 to 7 hours each day. This trekking
holiday should be well within the capabilities of all active hikers and

running hot water and use shared washing rooms and toilets), they are
