Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

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 Climate information

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.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

(5/5)

Our original plan was to complete the Everest Base Camp Trek, and after reviewing many trekking companies, my wife and I opted for Actual Adventure; we were not disappointed. Arrangements were made with company director Kedar Neptune, including our specific requirements. These were met in full, and in most cases exceeded. 

On arrival we had a meet and greet with Kedar and our trekking guide Bashu. During this meeting the finer details of the trek were finalised. Bashu very clearly discussed the day to day activities of the trek, and was very particular in ensuring that we both had the correct equipment.

Over the next two days we attempted to fly to the trail head at Lukla. Unfortunately, and due to unseasonal weather, our flights kept being cancelled. Our guide took control of this situation and suggested that we change to the Annuapurna Base Camp (ABC) Trek. We quickly agreed and Bashu and Kedar ensured that the transition between treks was seamless.

On the ABC trek there was myself, my wife, Bashu the guide and our porter Raj Kumar. We can't speak highly enough of the service both these guys provided. Bashu was observed to be highly experienced and knowledgeable, and set a pace that was very manageable. He arranged our accommodation, we don't know how he did it, but we never had a shared dorm, and we even camped at ABC, which is one of the highlights of the trip.

This was a fantastic trek made possible by the professionalism of Kedar, Bashu, Raj Kumar and all concerned at Actual Adventure. We arrived in Kathmandu as clients trekking guide and porter, and we departed as friends and walking companions.

We are planning a return visit in 2018 to make another attempt at Everest Base Camp, and we will absolutely be using the Actual Adventure.
