What do we mean by trekking?
Trekking is an enjoyable and accessible adventure.  In an area like the Annapurna Region this activity will blow your mind.  It generally involves days on foot and multi-day walks through parks and wilderness areas.  The Annapurna region mainly consists of teahouse treks.  The terrain can often be steep, and we will likely encounter cold weather and possibly snow at higher altitudes above 3 700m.

Is trekking an activity for me?
If you love spending time in the outdoors and going to magnificent places offering spectacular views, then trekking is most certainly for you.  It fills the gap between luxury travel and tented tours at a price that makes sense to most people.

Do I need prior trekking experience before setting out here?
No previous trekking experience is needed but it will certainly help.  Anyone with decent fitness and good stamina should be able to cope with the trekking days and higher elevations.  Hiking experience anywhere in the world is recommended for maximum enjoyment, but certainly not needed.

What permits are required for my trek?
This will depend on your specific trek but all regions have some form of permit system.  Some trekking areas require a special permit for the trekking activity and other areas may only require permits to enter conservation areas or national parks.  Often it is a combination of both.  Nearly all trekking areas require a Trekking Information Management System TIMS card.  As part of your package we obtain all permits on your behalf.

What is the average walking time per day?
On average you will walk about 5 to 8 hours daily.  Distances vary and will depend on trail conditions, weather conditions and the fitness of the group.

What is meant by teahouse trekking?
Teahouse trekking refers to the type of accommodation that is so unique to these mountain treks.  Lodging and meals are mostly at teahouses operated by local people and on a full-board basis.

Where do we get our drinking water from?
Bottled water is available in many places on the more established trekking routes but this will be for your own account. Most villages have a clean and reliable water source and we will utilise locally purified water mostly.  The teahouses can supply you with boiled water at a small fee.  You are encouraged to carry your own purification tablets or drops for your own peace of mind.

How much can a porter carry?
This will often depend on the trekking route and maximum altitude gain.  On average for trekking in the Annapurna Region every porter carries between 15 and 30kg.  A camping porter carries up to 40kg.  For our packages we normally assign one porter for every two travellers.  What this means to you is that on the trek you will be allowed 15kg luggage. This is strictly enforced to ensure the wellbeing of our porter crew. 

Should I tip my guides and porters?
Yes please do!  This is not mandatory but widely accepted as for anywhere else in the world.  Tipping is customary and always appreciated in Nepal and on our treks.
