The list of inclusions is usually on the page for each trek; however in general:
We provide an ‘airport to airport’ service – so from the moment you arrive in Kathmandu we are organising everything for you in terms of accommodation, trekking and transport.
The Kathmandu hotel provided will be a standard hotel for trekking guests, such as the Hotel Shakti or Blue Horizon. Typically these hotels will have en-suite rooms of a reasonable standard, but no air conditioning. They are central and convenient with pleasant small gardens and good service. All hotel costs and trip costs assume you are sharing a a room with one other person.
You may upgrade your hotel to an upmarket hotel such as the Hotel Shanker. This is an old royal palace a short walk from Thamel with lovely rooms, a beautiful swimming pool and luxurious gardens. To make the most of your stay an upgrade to the Shanker will cost just US$60 per person per night if sharing a room.
Stay at the Hotel Shanker before your trek with Climb High
As with all trekking trips, some items aren’t included in our costs. These are:
Travel and Medical insurance (please note this must cover helicopter evacuation in case of emergency)
Personal Trekking equipment – ie waterproofs, rucksack, sleeping bag, clothing, headtorch, hat, gloves etc – please refer to the kit lists.
Alcoholic or soft drinks, bottled mineral water, whether whilst trekking or at any meals
Meals in Kathmandu (unless your hotel rate includes breakfast)
Any other extra expenses due to any political disturbances or natural calamities.
Expenses related to any extended stay outside of our control – for example extra accommodation costs in the event of delayed flights to/from Lukla.
Expenses related to changing your travel details – i.e. supplementary air fare charges if we change your departure date on your behalf
Single person supplement for hotel rooms, teahouse/lodge room or single tent – please apply for a price for your trip.
Tips for porters and guides – it is traditional at the end of trips in Nepal to club together and give a tip to the staff. Normally this is given to the trip leader or senior climbing Sherpa who will divide the total according to seniority of staff. Please allow around $100-150 depending on the length of your trip; however this amount is at your discretion.
