it is mandatory to have travel insurance for the trekking and climbing and please submit us photocopy before departure to mountain. The insurance should cover comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue and treatment cost).

You are expect to trek about 5-7 hours covering distance of 10-15 kilometer daily depending on trial conditions and state of the weather. You’ll be traveling through wilderness, remote countryside and high elevations. Trekking with a guide is not only safer but also for more enjoyable experience. Our guides and porters are expert in Himalayan treks and have more than one decades of experience in average.
It is recommended that you prepare for trek with suitable training such as climbing hills/stairs, jogging, exercise and gym to improve your stamina few months prior to trek. The trek will be more enjoyable if you are fit.

There are plenty of excellent restaurants to serve food and drinks in Kathmandu such as Rum doodles, Fire & ice, La Dolce Vita, Ktoo Steak House, Everest Steak, New Orleans, Gaia etc. Breakfast is provided at your hotel every morning.

Ramdung Expedition employs and train Nepalese guide and local staff. Our guides have done following trainings.

- Wilderness First Aid - KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Educational Project)
- Trekking Guide Training - Nepal Government's Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation department of Hotel Management & Tourism Training Centre of Nepal.
- Eco Trekking Workshop & Adventure Meet - TAAN (Trekking Agents Association Of Nepal)
- English Language - KEEP
- Conservation & Biodiversity - KEEP
- Rock & Ice Climbing & Mountaineering (optional) - Nepal Mountaineering Association
Our trekking guides posses good speaking English language skills. This is not our mother language and so sometimes we suggest traveler to pick up and use a few of local greetings and get firsthand experience of the local culture. Our guides and porters know the route direction like the back of their hand, they practice the local culture themselves and they are passionate about their country and job.

For safety concern there will be one climbing Sherpa/guide and one assistance guide to each 4 clients. This will ensure no disturb in itinerary, if in case one get sick. The trip still runs as plan as in itinerary. Our minimum group requirement is 2 and maximum goes up to 12 to ensure good team and to communicate and facilitate in every manner.

Spring starts from March until May where temperature fluctuated between 20°c to 30°c. From June to August is summer season which is also time of monsoon with occasional thunderstorms and hot temperatures. From late September to end November is autumn and is best for trekking activities. Winter is from late November to February.
The trek will have a wide range of temperatures depending on the elevation and time of the particular day. In the mountains between 1000m-3500m, the night generally will be cool around 5°C and during the day temperatures every so often rise to 20°c. At the higher altitudes, temperatures range from 15° to -15°c.

Tips is not mandatory but generally after hard work something extra is expected. We recommend a tip for guide and porter as at least $70 (more will be appreciated).

Our itinerary is planned carefully to cope with AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Most of the time you’ll be trekking or going over 3000m and acclimatization is very important. You may be likely to experience some of the minor symptoms and discomfort of altitude sickness (headaches, mild nauseas, loss of appetite) until your body adjusts to the elevation.  This can take from a few hours to a couple of days depending on the individual. Do not exert yourself and drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids. It is very important to drink at least 4-5 liters of liquids daily to avoid any altitude sickness; this is probably the best remedy for AMS.

We advise specially the guests with known heart or lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before traveling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS.

Do not forget - the common effects of altitude such as:
- You may feel breathlessness on exertion.
- Some headache which is treatable by aspirin.
- May be some difficulty sleeping and a little loss of appetite.
- You might also wake up suddenly at night trying to catch your breath. Do not panic! Your metabolism has simply slowed down.
- You may also experience an exaggerated thumping headache, which will not go away, breathless even at rest, extreme nausea. The lack of oxygen in the system will first affect either the brain (HACE - Height Altitude Cerebral Edema) causing loss of physical and mental coordination OR the lungs (HAPE - Height Altitude Pulmonary Edema), coughing up persistent sputum or both.
- Do not drink any alcohol on the outward trek. It seriously impairs the ability to acclimatize, and confuses the symptoms of AMS.

Do drink copious quantities of water-even 5 liters a day is recommended by some medical sources. Dehydration through perspiration and increased breathing rate seriously inhibits acclimatization, and is the most common cause of altitude related problems.

Do not drink any alcohol if you are above 3000m It seriously impairs the ability to acclimatize, and confuses the symptoms of AMS.

Read Altitude Sickness notes by Dr. Jim Duff on :

The following are what we recommend to bring as clothing and equipment needed for the trekking and climbing.  Most of the gear can be rented or purchased in Kathmandu at cheaper price; we can assist you with necessary arrangement. Except for your day pack, your luggage will be carried by porters. You’ll have strong and hospitable porter for two people. The weight limit for trek is 25kg per person. One porter can carry 20-25kg weight.  Before the trek, you can store all your excess baggage in Kathmandu at hotel or at our office and take only which is required for the trek. It is also recommended to carry your own medical items too.
