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.

I found Actual Adventure on Tripadvisor when I was looking for a company to organise an Everest Base Camp trek for my boyfriend and I. This company had plenty of fantastic reviews, so I decided to contact them.
Kedar was great at responding in a prompt manner. He can cater to all budgets and organised a hotel, flights to Lukla and a guide/porter quickly and efficiently while I was still in Australia.
Our guide Mingma was amazing and truly made our trek memorable! He was very knowledgeable about the terrain and culture, and we enjoyed leaning about different ethnic groups and towns every day.
It was the small things like holding my hand when we were going down very steep sections, or giving us advice on altitude sickness when we felt unwell, that made us feel safe and extremely comfortable in his presence. On the last night he even invited us into his family home and cooked us a delicious meal. It was a sad to say goodbye after a wonderful two weeks in the mountains!
Our accommodation in Kathmandu (Hotel Peak Point) was suitable for a few nights before and after the trek. We had a private room on the top floor which caters for travelers on a tighter budget.
When we went to thank Kedar and his brother Susan after returning from Lukla, they invited us to play indoor soccer with them (which was boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed!). This shows how friendly they were!
I would highly recommend this company to all of my friends. Everything went really smoothly and they were instrumental in ensuring that we had an excellent time in Nepal!
Thanks Kedar, we'll be back to conquer Annapurna Base Camp one day!
