Health & Fitness Requirement

Your health and physical fitness are very important while booking any trip. All of our packages possess a certain level of fitness that you should have to join the trip. To be part of our adventurous Trekking, Climbing, Hiking, or Mountaineering, you have to be in good shape and sound health. Please go through our package information to know more about the trail and required experience. To make sure you are ready for the trip, we offer pre-departure fitness instruction that will help you to prepare for the journey.

The instruction we provide involves all the guides needed to increase your stamina, muscle power, and confidence for the trip. As the instructions are catered as per the chosen trip, you will get the best advice from our professionals. If you suffer from severe muscular, chest, heart or bronchial disorders, or if you are a severe asthmatic you are strongly advised to let us know before, so that we can see if the trip suits you or not.

Most of the trips we offer will take you to the remoteness of the Himalayas, where you will not find any modern infrastructures like WiFi, network, hospital, pharmacy, luxury hotels, fine dinings, etc. No one can predict anything in the Himalayan region and in the worst case, you might have to get air evacuated. Evacuation, where necessary, can be prolonged, complex, and expensive.

All the expenses incurred in medical bills and evacuation will be the client's responsibility. Therefore, we require mandatory medical insurance that will cover airlift and hospital expenses. We reserve the right to refuse any person the right to participate in a trip on medical or fitness grounds. If in doubt, we may be able to design a custom adventure not detrimental to your health.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is mandatory to have to join an adventurous trip in the Himalayas. It is for your safety. The travel insurance must cover things like illness, medical emergencies, accidents, death, trip cancellation, and loss of personal baggage & items. All costs for Emergency Evacuation must be paid in cash in Nepal unless an insurance company has agreed to pay all the cost on your behalf. Make sure that your travel insurance covers activities in the Himalayas if you are participating in them.

*Note: Foreigners are not allowed to purchase an insurance policy in Nepal. So make sure to purchase good travel insurance in your country, and it is your responsibility to check whether your insurance policy is adequate or not.
