1. Will somebody come to pick me up at the airport upon my arrival?
One of the representatives from Himalayan Sanctuary Adventure will be waiting outside the airport terminal displaying your name.

2. What sort of accommodation can I expect in Kathmandu and trekking?
We use standard rooms at 3* category hotels in Kathmandu and you will be accommodated at the best Normal teahouses/lodges along the trekking routes which provide the finest facilities in the mountains. The lodges in trekking routes usually provide single and double rooms. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. Up until Dingboche, you will have an attached toilet and bathroom. But in two locations Lobuche and Gorakshep, you will have to use a common toilet and bathroom. (depend on the Season)

3. Is it possible to swap my accommodation from a mountain guesthouse to a hotel in Kathmandu?
Substituting the accommodation or swapping from the mountain guest house to Kathmandu is NOT possible. We only provide two nights’ accommodation in Kathmandu included in the package. In case of flight cancellation or early arrival to Kathmandu due to any sickness in the mountain or any of your reason or due to bad weather and you are unable to continue the trek, you will need an extra night accommodation/s in Kathmandu. We can make these arrangements for a supplemental charge.

4. Is it possible to reserve a trip now and pay a deposit later or do I HAVE to pay a deposit at booking/reservation?
Yes! The trip will be confirmed only when we receive the completed final booking form and a 30% deposit payment. You can pay the balance of the money when you arrive in Kathmandu.

5. Is there a possibility of getting separate rooms for the Kathmandu portion of the trip? If so how much extra will this cost?
Yes! We can surely book separate rooms in Kathmandu for your portion of the trip. During the trek, we will try our best but normally the lodges have twin-sharing and dormitory-styled rooms instead of a single room.

6. Is this a guaranteed departure even if I am alone starting on the requested trip?

YES, all our trips are guaranteed to run. We never cancel the trip due to not having enough participants, we can arrange the trip for one person as well.

7. When I pay the remainder of the money on arrival in Kathmandu, how do you take that money? US cash or credit card?
You can clear the remainder of the money upon your arrival in Kathmandu or even before you arrive in Kathmandu. You can use USD, Euro, Pound, Canadian Dollar, Swiss franc in cash, Master, or Visa cards for the payment options. There will be a 4% bank levy when paying by credit card.

8. What sort of food can I expect in trekking?
Most teahouses (lodges) in Everest Base Camp trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal Bhat (rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season), and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – eat some every day. In many larger villages, you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you’ll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to the destination

9. Is the food in the mountain prepared to international standards in terms of safety?
YES, the food is very safe during the trekking but we recommend you to eat vegetarian and local food. Please follow the suggestion of our guide on the trek.

10. Is water provided and is there still water available at higher altitudes? Is it filtered/boiled?
Bottled water is easily available at the lodges and tea houses. You can buy bottled water at the cost of USD 2 at lower elevations and up to USD 4 at higher elevation per littler. You can also drink the normal tap or spring water if you bring the purifying aid with you.

11. What is the alternative option if my flight to and from Lukla is canceled or delayed?
Twin Otter and Dornier is the primary mode of transport to and from the airstrip at Lukla. This service is fairly dependable. Sometimes, flights (to and from Lukla) may be canceled due to mountain weather conditions or technical issues. In such a case, Ace the Himalaya can help you charter a helicopter to ensure you are on schedule for your trek or international flight. The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500m, while the twin otter and Dornier can fly if the visibility is 5000m, as per Nepal’s Civil Aviation rules. If the weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500m helicopters are also not operated for the flights. In such cases, we will reschedule your flight for the next day providing you with alternative trek options.

12. How much should I pay for the Heli charter?

The cost of the helicopter is payable directly to our Kathmandu office if this service is utilized. US cash or credit cards (Visa Cards, Master Cards, American Express only) are accepted. You will be given a receipt upon payment so that you may claim the amount from your travel insurance. The extra charges incurred are approximately USD 2,500 to USD 3,000 per helicopter (minimum USD 500 to maximum USD 3,000 per person) would apply to you for the helicopter charter. Usually, the helicopter takes only 3 to 5 passengers at a time. Therefore whatever the cost of a helicopter is, the price is divided among the group members. Any card payment requires a 4% bank fee while doing the transaction, which is taken by the bank itself. (Himalayan Sanctuary Adventure doesn’t own any of those 4% amounts).

13. What is the best season for this trekking?

Our trekking season extends from mid-September to May. From early September the monsoonal rains decrease. By the end of September through to December, the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, and cold nights. February, March, April, May, October, November, and December is the best time to do Everest base camp deluxe trek

14. What sort of weather conditions and temperature temperatures will be in Trekking?
Every trekking trip up the mighty Mt. Everest presents its own amazing, unforgettable moments that forever live on in the hearts and minds of those brave enough to make the climb. One of the most unpredictable elements of the Everest region 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.
Spring – March / April / May / June Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Everest 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 flowers are visible in the lower altitude. During springtime, the average temperature is 17 degrees C with a maximum of 25 degrees C during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.
July / August through Mid-September is Monsoon Season This season is not 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 positives to trekking during the monsoon months, however. 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. The maximum temperature during the monsoon season averages 25 degrees C during sunny days with a minimum of -15 degrees C in the morning and night at areas above 4000 meters. The average temperature tends to hover around a comfortable 18 degrees C.
Autumn – End of September / October / November Similar to springtime, autumn in the Everest 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 15 degrees C with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C during sunny days and a minimum of -10 degrees C in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude. Regardless of the time of year, trekkers should always plan accordingly and bring clothing for both cooler and warmer temps. Layering is always recommended, as are pants that can double as shorts.
15. Can I obtain a visa for Nepal upon arrival at the airport?
YES, you can obtain a visa easily upon your arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu. A tourist Visa with Multiple Entries for 30 days can be obtained by paying US $ 40 or equivalent foreign currency. Similarly, a Tourist Visa with Multiple entries for 90 days can be obtained by paying US $ 100. Please bring 2 copies of passport-size photos.
16. What if I am very sick in the mountain?
Our guides are 24 hours available for services during the trek. They are trained to use the first aid kit and have the knowledge to use an Oxy meter. They are very much aware that the higher the altitude the oxygen level gets lesser so to get updated on the oxygen level of our client and to know whether they are fit enough or need extra precautions to continue. Guides carry local sim cards for both Nepal Telecom and Ncell to update the whereabouts and the situation of every client. During the time of emergency, our guides are alert and keep updated with the head office in Kathmandu that is available 24 /7 to arrange from horse to mules or helicopters in the most needed cases especially when the client is seriously sick in the mountain and needed to be hospitalized.
17. What immunizations will I need?
No vaccinations are compulsory in the Himalayas, but we do recommend you are covered for diphtheria & TB, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, *malaria, typhoid, polio, and tetanus. We also recommend you know your blood group in case of an emergency.
18. What is your cancellation policy?
A cancellation notice is required a minimum of 20 days before trip departure. If the reason is valid the Trip shall then be termed as canceled and the cancellation charge of 30% of the trip amount would be deducted from the advance paid. If you do not cancel your trip before 20 days due to whatsoever reasons, you must be aware that the trip you’ve already bought is completely non-refundable as per our terms and conditions. If you cancel the trip and need to submit a claim to your insurance company, we can help with the supporting documentation such as a receipt for monies paid. If your trip is cut short due to weather/illness/personal reasons, there is no refund for accommodations unused.
19. Where do we go to the toilet along the trail?

Wherever possible we utilize the toilet facilities provided by the tea houses/lodges on the trail. However, in case of emergency trekkers are recommended to find a private, scenic spot!

20. What are the Toilet facilities in the tea house/guesthouse?

Most of the tea houses do have western-style flushing toilets however tea houses at higher elevations you could find the squat toilets made of either a ceramic basin on the ground or a few planks precariously positioned over a hole in the ground which is always outside.

21. Is there a possibility of getting separate rooms for the trip? If so how much extra will this cost?

Normally the lodges have twin-sharing and dormitory-styled rooms. The lodges will provide a private room for one person when available. In Kathmandu, USD 45 Per Room per Night would be added as a single supplement fee. The single supplements are always guaranteed in Kathmandu but not in the mountains especially during the peak time.
