The following general information applies to people travelling with The Gurkha Adventures Company and will assist you when preparing for your trip to the Himalayas. Altitude has a significant effect and makes physical demands on the body. All trips involve being at altitude to varying degrees. An appropriate level of fitness, together with good health will assist the body to acclimatise in the majority of cases.
We want you to enjoy your visit to Nepal and recognise that advice may be required regarding fitness. All our adventure holidays and expeditions are staffed using guides, cooks and porters from the local area who are skilled in their particular field. In this way we not only guarantee you get the very best support, but also ensure you’re able to experience the Nepalese or Tibetan culture. In addition, it helps to sustain the local economy, giving back something in return for the chance to spend time in such a special place.
Guide books are a useful way to prepare yourself for your trip. For confirmation and an up to date price list see Dates and Prices.
