Need to Know
All accommodation is Twin-Share & based in a Hotel, Lodge or Tea House. Single rooms are available upon request & payment of additional fees. Please inquire for more information.
Throughout the trip we request that our hotels prepare rooms in time for our arrival, especially if we’re arriving prior to normal check-in time. However this isn’t always possible which means we won’t be able to check-in immediately on arrival at some hotels. Instead, we can store our luggage and explore our new destination.
Please see detailed itinerary for more information on day-to-day meal inclusions. 3 meals a day are included during trekking days.
Mode of Transport
Required Level of Fitness
Get ready for a heart-pumping adventure with plenty of challenges and some extreme conditions. You’ll be required to be moderately fit for this trip as difficult activities are included. You will be walking at altitudes of up to approximately 5545 metres above sea level and it will be demanding trekking.
This trip includes one or more overnight stays over 3500 metres/11500ft, where there is a genuine risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If left untreated AMS can be life-threatening. We would expect the majority of a group to notice the effects of being at high altitude, and while most will only feel discomfort, it is not uncommon for a small number of people to need extra care which will be provided by our leaders and local staff. All our trips that spend time at High Altitude follow our standard altitude safety measures.
While we endeavor to assist all Adventurer’s in achieving their goals, there may be times when your Adventure Leader makes the decision to either delay or stop your ascent based on your medical conditions & AMS symptoms.
Please note that while we operate successful trips in this region throughout the year, some changes may occur in our itineraries due to inclement weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transport routes. This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for modifications to the route.
Flight delays to Lukla do occur as weather can sometimes be unpredictable.
