Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. 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.

In Nepal, “Namaste” or “Namaskar” is said to an older or high-status person with palms together, figure up. It is used to greet a person in place of goodbye or hello. There is no limitation how many times you say “Namaste” but, it is better if you say once per person, per day. If You want to say “Thank You” then you can say “Dhanyabaad /'ðɅnjɅbɑ:d/ (Dhan-ya-baad)”
I warmly recommend Actual Adventure. The agency is well organized and professional. Sujan was really friendly and sincere. I went on the Annapurna base camp treck with my guide Lakpa Sherpa. He was also friendly, helpful and polite.
It was a beautiful experience.
Thank you :)
I'd been in contact with Kedar Neupane of Actual Adventure for a couple of years prior to our visit and this contact had come via another facebook friend, Andrea, whom I'd met while travelling in SE Asia. Although we didn't meet face to face until arrival, it was as if we were already old friends and Kedar met us at the airport and hooked us up with a great guide, Bhola Karki and the kindest of porters - Meck - for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. All details were professionally managed and all questions promptly answered, and any criticism we had was about the standard of accommodation in some of the tea houses, which were often primitive and fundamentally basic but outside the remit of Actual Adventure, of course. We couldn't fault this company and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for your trip in Nepal. We'll use them again for a foray into Tibet next year.
