To prepare for a strenuous trek you should begin training at least three to four months before your departure. As a guideline, an hour of aerobic exercise three to four times per week would be considered a minimum requirement. The best preparation is bushwalking involving relatively steep ascents and descents.

Do I need any prior climbing experience

Peak climbing involves trekking with all the expedition equipment. Though previous climbing experience certainly helps yet no prior experience is required for mera Peak climbing. However, anyone with knee, ankle, heart or lungs pre medical history needs to seek medical consent before considering mera Peak. .

What sort of accommodation can I expect in Kathmandu and in trekking ?
We use standard rooms at two or three star category hotels in Kathmandu including breakfast. Along the trekking routes, Teahouses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. it is better to always have your own sleeping equipment. The lodges in trekking routes usually provide single and double rooms, or occasionally a dormitory. 

Is it possible to swap my accommodation from mountain guesthouse to hotels in Kathmandu ?
Substituting the accommodation or swapping from mountain guest house to Kathmandu is Not possible. We only provide four 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 own personal 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

What are the Toilet facilities in the tea house/guesthouse ?
In higher elevation you could find the squat toilets made of either a ceramic basin on the ground or few planks precariously positioned over a hole in the ground which is always outside of the room.

Where do we go to toilet along the trail?
At most cases you can use the toilet provided by the tea houses/lodges on the trail but normally in case of emergency, you just do toilet along the trail wherever you find privacy.

Do I need to bring toilet paper for the trek ?
All the guest houses sell the toilet paper so you can buy it there itself. Hand sanitizer and a towel must be brought on your own.

What sort of food can I expect in trekking and camping ?
Most teahouses (lodges) in 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 your destination.

What opportunities will I have for shower along the trek ?
At higher elevation  warm water in the bucket will be provided for shower which will cost you extra about USD 3 – 4 per shower. The higher you go the hot shower would be expensive.

Can I use credit cards in the places I visit in trekking ?
During the trekking period, cash transaction is highly recommended. Please change the currency in local Nepali Rupees before you go to the mountains. 

How much additional money do I need per day ?
It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu, you can allocate USD 10 to USD 15 for a lunch and a dinner. Roughly USD 25 to USD 40 per person a day will be enough to buy breakfast, lunch, dinner, bottles of water, chocolates, pay for the hot shower and a few drinks during the trekking. Please note, higher you go the things would be expensive especially at higher altitude; all the goods are supplied either by helicopter, horse, mules or porters therefore the things are expensive

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 end of September to December, the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights. February, March, April, May, June, September, October, November and December are the best time for Peak Climbing.

What is the weather & temperature like in trekking?
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 flower are visible in the lower altitude.

During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum of 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

July / August Through Mid-September is Monsoon Season
This season is not really 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 positive sides of trekking during the monsoon months as 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.

During Monsoon, the average temperature is 22 degrees C (71.6 Degrees F), with a maximum of 30 degrees C (86 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -5 degrees C (23 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

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 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

Winter- December/ January/ February
Winter start from mid December till mid February. People still like to trek in this month due to fewer crowds. View is still good but foggy so having extra days is highly recommended during this period.

The average temperature during the winter is 10 degrees C (50 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

What if I am very sick in the mountain ?
Our guides are 24 hours available for the services during the trek. They are trained to use first aid kit and have knowledge to use Oxymeter. Guides carry local sim cards both Nepal Telecom and Ncell in order to update whereabouts and situation of our every client. During the time of emergency our guides are alert and keeps updated to head office in Kathmandu that is available 24/7 to arranging from horse to mules or helicopters in the must needed cases especially when client is seriously sick in the mountain and needed to be hospitalized.

Can I charge my digital camera or other equipment’s on my trip ?
These facilities will be available in most of the places in your guesthouses reception by paying some service charges. Remember to bring TWO and THREE pin travel adapters! You can also buy the adapters in the super markets or electronic shops in the Kathmandu. Our guide can help you with it. 

Will there be a place to store items/clothing not required for while I am in mountain ?
The hotel in Kathmandu does provide the free storage services. So you can leave all your items that are not required for the trekking at your hotel.

Do you use yaks/porters on the trek or do we carry all of our own gear ?
Whilst on the trek, our porter will take care of your luggage. All you need to carry is your small day bag for your personal belongings like camera, water bottle, sun cream etc.

Do I need to tip my guide and porters ? How much would that be ?
This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 50 to USD 500 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you to spend minimum 10% of your total trip cost for tipping entire local staffs,

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 so you can buy bottled water at the cost of USD $ 2 at lower elevations upto USD $4 to higher elevation per littler. You can also drink the normal tap or spring water if you bring the purifying aid with you.
