What will I eat in the mountains?
For breakfast you have the option of porridge, fruit, omelettes, pancakes, toast with fried eggs, or tsampa (Tibetan porridge). For lunch and dinner you have the option of dahl batt (a tasty staple that consists of rice, a lentil soup, pickled vegetables, and curried potatoes), curried potatoes, pasta, spring rolls, lasagne, momo dumplings, or stir fry. It is not recommended to eat meat in the mountains.
Weight limits for internal flights?
If you are flying internally in Nepal (Everest Trek and Annapurna Circuit) there is a 12kg weight limit per person and this is the total weight of both the hand luggage and the checked in luggage.
Do I need adventure travel insurance?
It is important that you have adequate travel insurance that covers helicopter airlifts whilst trekking. The need for a helicopter is unlikely, but the mountains are remote and not accessible by car. It is essential that you get insurance for the altitude of your trek as some companies only cover treks to only 2000m or 4000m.
