Additional Information

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.

Client Reviews

25th May, 2022

  Everest Base Camp has been on my bucket list my entire life and I finally did it 10th November 2016. I researched companies on TripAdvisor and settled on Actual Adventures as Kedar was always prompt with replies and eager to answer my many many questions. Originally planned to go with my son but when his plans changed I decided to take a leap of faith and go alone - I had some reservations about being a woman travelling alone but it turned out I had nothing to worry about. Kedar met me... See more at the airport and transferred to the Yak and Yeti Hotel - a very nice start to such a big adventure. I was introduced to Binod on the morning of our departure and as I'd made the mistake of looking up Lukla landings on Youtube, was quite nervous about that leg. Binod put my mind at rest and I think he would have happily held my hand if that had been necessary. The flight to Lukla was like a Disney ride once you get over the nerves of such a tiny plane. We picked up our porter Dilip upon landing and we were off .... the higher in altitude we traveled the more remote and basic the tea houses and you need to be prepared to rough it .... no hot water, but then it's too cold to shower anyway and the food can sometimes be basic compared to what we westerners are used to ... but it's not about that - it's about the experience of a lifetime - and that, it certainly was ! The scenery is breathtaking in every direction and every day gets better. The sense of accomplishment upon ascending Kala Pattar and the most magnificent, close up views of Mt Everest will remain with me as a highlight - also the hardest part of the trek - at 5500 meters the air's pretty thin !! Binod was extremely helpful, cheerful and a complete professional. He was able to answer any question and I felt able to rely upon him for everything and anything, from advising me to use my water bottle as a hot water bottle inside my sleeping bag at night, to showing me which were the safest rocks to step on when crossing frozen rivers. I can highly recommend Actual Adventures and if you're thinking about doing Everest - stop thinking and just DO IT !!   Lishat Melbourne, Australia See less...
