Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.
Nepal is a landlocked country which lies in Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Nepal has monsoonal climate having four main seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.
Below is a general guide to conditions at different seasons:
January to March (winter): In this season temperature will decrease at often 0°C (32°F) at night, with extreme cold at high elevations. It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
October to December (autumn): These months are cool and clear which is due to the end of monsoon, there is little dust in the air so this is the best season to visit the hilly and mountainous regions.

Everest Helicopter Tour was an amazing lifetime experience. This was a surprise gift for my wife on our 25th anniversary. The view from the window was heavenly. I had personally known sujan during my trek to ABC with Actual Adventures and we were very good friends since then. Kedar also arranged us a candle light dinner for us. My wife was very happy with my gift and I want to thank Kedar for a wonderful management. I highly recommend Kedar and his company.
Since I’m not a professional trekker and trekking is not my cup of tea but exploring the mountains has always been my biggest dream. Everest Base camp Helicopter Tour made one of my biggest dreams come true and I’m very thankful to Actual Adventures group. It was the most adventurous tour of my life and I’m in love with the mountains. The scenic flight to Lukla was also an exciting part of the journey. All the services of the company were great and I’m very satisfied with my tour.
I was in search of a wonderful tour since long but had no idea about where to go and what to do for. I asked my friend and one of my friend suggested Nepal and Everest Base Camp helicopter tour for a wonderful trip. I searched on the web and found out Actual Adventure. I mailed Kedar and his response was very quick and nice. He had managed everything for me on my arrival and the guide was great. It was an enthralling experience and I highly recommend this company to everyone.
I thoroughly enjoyed the flight to Lukla and helicopter ride to the Everest Base Camp and the views was magnificent. The Everest seems more beautiful and amazing than my imagination. The region was extremely beautiful and blessed by nature. Namche Bazaar looked magnificent from above and it was a nostalgic moment. Thankful to the entire team of Actual Adventure.
Thank you for all smooth organisation and everything, we highly appreciate and highly recommended this company for such trip and any kind of trip around Nepal, Tibet Bhutan and India
