Health Requirements
You are preparing for a trek in the higher altitudes of remote Himalayan region. Hence during this treks, the physically, emotionally & mentally demanding mountain trek & you may face Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), if you trek/hike quickly/ascended too fast as well as other health related problems. In this regard, Experience Treks strongly recommends for those travelers with pre-existing medical conditions like heart, lungs and blood pressure/diseases make know to us before booking this trip.

Experience Requirements
The remote mountain trekking requires 4 – 6 hours walking in per day a basis and at times it even exceeds to 7 – 8 hours depending on your walking pace, age groups, weather condition & seasons. Despite this fact, we do not suggest you for mandatory hiking or technical climbing experiences. Yet, it will be better if you have a regular jogging habit of few weeks before booking this trip
Travel Insurance
Experience Nepal Treks & Expedition does not sell or arranges any kind of insurance plan/packages for foreigners except local staff/s. Yet, it will be mandatory to join our trips that you should be insured for comprehensive expenses that may arise from the trip for your own safety. Your Insurance plan must be covering medical/travel issues as well as unforeseen accidents that may occur to the trips. In such a case, you may to take the facility like an air ambulance, helicopter rescue, Clinical attention and so on.

Trekking in higher altitudes may even cost the life of travelers! The more you go higher elevation/height, the lesser will be availability of Oxygen pressure in the air. Therefore, your body requires a few days too many days to adopt the newer situation/climate in an environment with less oxygen. The higher you climb the more will be the possibility of undergoing through Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) problems. Hence, Experience Nepal Treks & Expedition`s itineraries are extremely concern on this problem/issue. With our expert team, you can easily cops with altitude sickness problems. The AMS will attract you after 3,000 m. The Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA), non-profitable medical institution recommends to all trekkers/hikers to ascend slowly after 3,000 m (either ascends 300 m each day or every 600 m spend an extra night, the same altitude). The rule is slowly ascents to go higher elevation to be safe!

Porter Care
We are tremendously concern over the rights of the porters who facilitate traveler`s adventure dreams in the Himalayas. Without porters hard working, your dream to go to mountains will not be certain/guaranteed. It is our serious concern that the porters should be well paid, make sure their warm clothing, well equipped and treated equally even in the harsh situation in the remote Himalayas. In case of emergency situations, we give equal to rescue facilities as other team members get in the adverse situation in the higher altitude including rescue services by Helicopter. Besides this, we too are concern about International Porter Protection Group (IPPG) which works in the field of trekking porter/s by protecting the rights of porter, basic language training to express their problems, make sure for enough warm clothing & other equipment, compulsory Insurance facility. In doing so, we recommend all our trekkers in the Himalayas just to keep their luggage under 30 kg so that it can be handled by porters smoothly in the higher mountains. If possible, try to make about 25 Kg. over 4,000 m & high passes.

Environmental Concerns
Being human beings, it is our responsibility to protect natural & cultural order, to conserve environment and to love nature. Himalayan region is ecologically very much fragile and hence we try to practice “to leave just footprints and take photos” so that future generation will to have chances to experience the beauty of Himalayan region. Respecting natural balance and being sensible towards local environment yields into protecting local cultures as well. Hence, our trip operations tremendously focus on environmental issues in the Himalayas and thereby eco-tourism.
Best Seasons
The best seasons of travelling/trekking in the Himalayas are autumn season (September-November) and spring season (March-May). Apart from these two seasons, there is a possibility of trekking in the Himalayas even in the winter and summer seasons which is called off-seasons. In the winter season, cold, snowing & flight delay or cancellation slightly affects the trips & high passes could be closed. But, travelling/trekking in the summer season comes with tremendous rewards for a passionate botanist despite of rainy days, flooding, landslides, flight delay or cancellation like winter season. It will be great in the least rain fall regions & high passes, where are lots of wild orchid blooming.
