Safety

Safety

Safety is of the utmost importance to us. That is why this is an area in which we simply do not compromise when it comes to keeping the cost of our trekkings low. Our guides have been selected on the basis of their technical competence, proven safety performance, impeccable judgment, friendly attitude and ability to provide useful and expert instructions. They are also very professional and well trained in first aid and personal protection equipment. First aid kits are available on all treks. In addition, the routes are ideally designed to give you enough time to acclimatize.

While the intention is to stick to the described route, a certain degree of flexibility is built in. In some cases it may be necessary to change the route here and there. The mountains are full of surprises, and the weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable. The guides continuously carry out risk assessments throughout the expedition. It is therefore best to plan a number of extra days in Nepal for possible unforeseen circumstances. Read all about altitude sickness here.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Best Season
If you have read our blog post about the best time for trekking in Nepal, you will know that every season in Nepal is suitable for trekking. However, in certain times of the year the one area of Nepal is more favorable than the other. Most people who go trekking in the Everest region and Gokyo Valley do so from March till the beginning of June and from September till the end of December. The Annapurna Region is best enjoyed in March to May and from October all the way to December. Just like Everest, you can trek in Annapurna all year round. The same seasons are most popular when talking the Manaslu Circuit and the Langtang Valley. The Upper Mustang is your choice during the Monsoon season when the rest of the country gets more rainfall. The Upper Dolpo is perfect most of the year, especially from March all the way to November.

Porters
Bookatrekking.com strives to only work with providers who treat porters in a fair manner. Without porters, there is no trekking in Nepal. They are the heart and soul of your adventure and they every day carry part of your gear. Bookatrekking.com always tries to find a balance between an affordable trekking adventure and the fair treatment of porters.

Tipping
Porters are partly dependent on tipping. The cheaper your trekking, the more likely it is that the salary for porters is low. In any case, this must be compensated with tipping. It is an unwritten law in the Himalayas. On your way you will notice that the amount of tipping is a hot topic. At the end of the trek there is an opportunity to give tips. The rxule of thumb is to count 10 to 15% of the total amount of the trek. This can be divided into 60-40. The 60% of the amount goes to the guide and 40% is for the porter(s).

Currency and Payment Methods
We recommend you to bring US dollars or euros to pay for your visa, further travel and other costs. It is easiest to travel in Nepal with US dollars. Nepal has reasonable banking facilities with branches of a number of international local commercial banks. Credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted. ATMs can be found everywhere in Kathmandu and Pokhara. There are ATMs in larger cities during the hikes. However, it is a good idea to bring enough money from Kathmandu or Pokhara as in Nepal you never know if the ATMs will work.

Visa Nepal
Upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu you can get a tourist visa. USD 25 for 15 days from the date of issue, USD 40 for 30 days and USD 100 for 90 days tourist visa. You need two passport photos. You can apply for an online visa here.

Vaccinations
No immunizations are required vsiting Nepal, but it’s always worth checking which vaccinations are recommended and check you are up-to-date with all your boosters.

Although you can get vaccinations in Kathmandu, it’s generally better (and often cheaper) to get them before your trip. Either way, it’s always worth consulting with your local doctor or nurse for up-to-date travel and inoculation advice at least 6 weeks before your planned departure date.

The main recommended vaccinations for Nepal are Hepatitis A, Typhoid, and Meningitis. Boosters are also recommended for Tetanus, Polio, Mumps, and Measles.Depending on your travel plans, you may also consider inoculations against Japanese Encephalitis, Hepatitis B, and Rabies. This is especially important if you have young children, plan to stay for an extended period of time, working in health care, or visiting rural areas and the lowlands of the Terai Region.
