All the travelers need to be in a good physical healthly condition in order to participate in the travel tours and trekking experience. If in the opinion of our group leader, any traveler is unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or the rest of the group, we reserve the right to exclude them from all or part of a trip without refund. We therefore ask that you read the itinerary in the trip details thoroughly and then realistically self-assess your physical ability to complete the trip as described. Please consult with your doctor if you have any doubts.
There are no specific health requirements for our trips. However, you should consult with your doctor for up-to-date information and prescriptions before your departure. We recommend that you carry a first aid kit as well as any personal medical requirements. For travelers over 70 years, a completed and signed Self Assessment Form is required.
We are very aware of the health issues raised by Bird flu and Swine flu and these have been taken into consideration for all aspects of the trip you are about to take. We also reserve the right to make changes to any itinerary in the very unlikely occurrence that an area should suddenly be deemed to be unsafe because of an outbreak of bird flu, swine flu or other disease.
For the trekking expedition trips the general rule is that you will need to be very fit and the more preparation you have done for it, the more you will enjoy it. You will be walking at altitudes of up to approximately 5545 meters above sea level and it will be physically demanding. You will be walking with your day pack, with the possibility of extreme variations in temperature. We recommend that you undertake regular aerobic exercise in the months before you travel, particularly if you are not in the habit of regular exercise. Doing mountain trekking is same as climbing long stair cases with a pack, try putting a few bricks in your pack for real training . Walking, jogging, swimming or riding a bike all good ways to increase your aerobic fitness, which will allow you to enjoy the trek to its fullest.
Nepal is one of the most tourist friendly countries in the world. In fact, many consider Nepal to be the Mecca of trekking & tours.
