Keeping in Touch - communication while on the road
If you need to be contacted while travelling we recommend that you set up an email address that can be accessed on the road. Email has quickly become the preferred way for travellers to stay in touch and email cafes are common place in most the cities. If someone wishes to contact you in an emergency while you are on one of our trips we recommend that they contact Gurkha Adventures, or refer to our emergency contact. We don't recommend that family and friends try to contact you through hotels, as they are subject to change and the reception staff may not speak English.
