Experience Required: This Trek is suitable for keen walkers who are able to walk for 6 – 7 hours in a day, with a light rucksack. Some of the days are quite long, and the walking feels more strenuous at altitude. Generally the trail is a good track, but occasionally it will be uneven and rocky.

You may keep things you will not use on trek at our hotel in Kathmandu.
What will the temperature be like?
Basically the atmospheric temperature fluctuates between -10 to 25 degrees throughout the day.
When we are trekking, temperature would be on the high. For trekking, our concerns are focused on sun and wind exposure. Do to protect yourselves, you can wear long trekking pants or convertibles, in case it gets to warm and a dry-fit long sleeve top and have the rain shell or outer waterproof layer accessible.
You’ll need your fleece or maybe the down jackets for those who are more afraid of cold when we reach the lodgings or at night to keep warm.
How much money should we bring?
You will need to carry Nepali Rupee if you decide you want to more shower than 3 times, or have additional hot water on trek. At the trekking lodges, you may wish to buy specialty menu items as well, or pick up souvenirs on trek. Shopping can be done on your last day in Thamel area.
What about Acute Mountaineering Sickness (AMS)?
AMS occurs to different people differently at different altitude due to our tolerance level.
Signs of AMS includes: Dizziness, Nausea, Loss of Appetite, Fatigue or weakness, Shortness of breath, Drowsiness, Fluctuation.
Peripheral Edema (Swelling of extremities)
Fluctuation in body temperature
Prevention of AMS:
Adequate REST prior to the trip.
Adequate HYDRATION during the trek or activity. (It is alright to keep going to the look, it is good for you)
Adequate SALT AND SUGAR in your bloodstream. (Basically EAT)
Adequate WARMTH. (Keep yourself warm and try to not lose as much heat as possible to maintain bodily functions)
PROPER BREATHING. (Breathe deep into the diaphragm, breathe slow and steady. Breathe through your nose. Do not pant.)
PROPER EXERTION. (Go at a constant, manageable pace, do not chase after the person in front, try not to keep stopping and starting)
All in all, sound out when you do not feel well. We are only human.
