  15. What is the weather and temperature like in trekking?

    One of the most unpredictable elements of the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri 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. Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime hours in the Himalayan region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. During the day, the thermometer could reach temps as high as 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), only to dip down as low as -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F) in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the month and season.

    Spring – March / April / May / June
    Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri 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 springtime, 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, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri 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. The above temperature is based on outside of the guesthouse temperature. No need to worry about the cold temperature as we provide the sleeping bag plus the extra blanket to make sure our clients are warm enough during the time of need.

     

  16. What is the best session for this trekking?

    Our trekking season extends from mid- September to May. From early September the monsoonal rains decrease. By end of September through to December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights. February, March, April, May, June, October, November, December are the best time to do trek in Nepal. From July to mid-September is raining season in Nepal.

  17. What is your cancellation policy?

    Cancellation notice is required, minimum of 20 days prior to trip departure. If the reason is valid the Trip shall then be termed as cancelled and the cancellation charge of 30% of the trip amount would be deducted from the advance paid.

    If you do not cancel your trip prior to 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 of advance monies paid. If your trip is cut short due to weather/illness/personal reasons, there is no refund for accommodations unused.

     

  18. Is it possible to reserve a trip now pay deposit later or do I have to pay deposit at booking reservation?

    The trip will be confirmed only when we receive the completed final booking form and 20% deposit payment. You can pay the rest of the balance when you arrive in Kathmandu by USD Cash, Credit cards (Master, Visa and American Express) any card payment requires 4% bank fee while doing the transaction, which is taken by bank itself. 

  19. Do we book own international flights to and from Nepal?

    Yes, you need to book your own International flights. We are a local agent and it would cost you significantly higher to book through us.

  20. In case of cancelled flight due to weather condition, how do we reach Lukla from Kathmandu and vice versa?

    In case of emergency cancellation of flights due to bad weather condition at MOuntain or in Kathmandu we recommend our clients to wait for some time for the weather to clear out. In case the weather fails to clear out and the flights are not likely to take place then in such cases we recommend to go for a helicopter charter. This facility can be provided if our clients are agreeing to pay the extra charges applicable for the heli ride. The helicopter takes 4 to 6 passengers at a time and the cost can be shared amongst the passengers. The cost must be paid by the participant, which can later be submitted for reimbursement through travel insurance company. We can help you with the necessary documents for a claim.

  21. What is the alternative option if my flight to and from Lukla is delayed or cancelled?

    Twin Otter and Dornier is the primary mode of transport to and from the airstrip at Lukla, Jomsom & Dolpo This service is fairly dependable. Sometimes, flights (to and from Lukla) may be cancelled due to mountain weather conditions or technical issues. In such case, Nepal Travels Expedition can help you to 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 weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500m no helicopters are also operated for the flights. In such case we will reschedule your flight for next day we will give you alternative trek options.

     

  22. What mode of transportation do you use?

    Depending on the nature of the travel, the transportation to and from the destination varies from domestic flights to vehicule transportation to even horse rides on mules and yaks and porter. We provide you only those options, which enhance your local experience while allowing you to travel comfortably and efficiently. We use private tourist vehicles for sightseeing, city tours and pickups. Depending on the group size we use cars, minibus, big bushes, vans or alternatively 4WD SUVs, more traveling along the narrow and bumpy roads of Nepal. All the vehicles are usually air-conditioned unless we are traveling in cooler areas.

  23. How much additional money do I need per day for the trek?

    It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu, you can allocate USD 10 to USD 20 for a lunch and a dinner. USD 15 to USD 20 per person a day will be enough to buy 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  things are more expensive.

  24. What are the opportunity will I have for the shower along the trek?

    At the lower altitude  in trekking route, the guesthouses provide the facilities of hot shower.
