Can I trek during Monsoon season?

Sure! Annapurna Circuit and Upper Mustang are excellent choices since much of the treks are in the Himalayan rain shadow.

Do I need insurance for trekking in Nepal?

Absolutely. While trekking in Nepal is pretty safe, accidents do happen. As a result, it's your responsibility to ensure adequate insurance coverage is in place. Check with your provider to make sure it covers trekking activities up to the max. altitude of the trek, search and rescue as well as emergency evacuation.

Can I get Internet access while on trek?

Some lodges in popular trekking areas provide slow and unreliable WIFI for a fee (ocassionally it's free) but don't count on it. Larger towns and villages may have EDGE (Manang) and sometimes even 3G (Muktinath, Jomsom, Namche Bazaar).

How about tipping?

If you are happy with our service, you are encouraged to tip the staff. Normally, it's 1 day's pay for each week of the trek, i.e. around 15%.
