4 Should we purchase travel insurance?
We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance before you travel to any foreign country. Travel insurance can help minimize the risks of international travel: accidents, illness, missed flights, canceled tours, lost baggage, theft, and medical evacuation.

There is no cancellation fee if the trip is cancelled prior to two weeks before the start of the trip.

If cancellation occurs within 24 hours of the start of the trip, 100% will be charged.
6 How are treks arranged in Nepal?
In Nepal, organized trekking exists in almost all areas, from the very well-traveled, to the off-the-beaten path areas. Trekkers can trek independently, from local teahouse to teahouse, or on more organized camping trips with a range of support.
7 How easy or difficult are treks?
Treks can be arranged at any level of difficulty, from easy meandering to expert-level mountain climbing. Most trekkers, however, choose a middle path, hiking alongside the accessable paths that locals also use. Trekkers should be in physically fit, but easier treks can be arranged for those who prefer to take a relaxed, easy pace. Organized treks involve local porters, who carry all the gear for the trekking party.
