Itineraries for our advertised trips are unable to be varied however we can, and frequently do, arrange private trips, packages and dates for individuals and groups upon request.

What does Trek Climb Ski Nepal consider responsible travel?
We take our responsibilities as a tour operator in Nepal very seriously and we take great pride in the care and well-being of all our Nepalese workers. Trek Climb Ski Nepal always pays above average wages to our Nepalese guides and porters and we ensure all our staff are properly equipped (clothing and equipment wise) on every expedition they undertake. On all our expeditions, the standard outfit for our guides and porters includes sturdy hiking boots and socks, winter jackets and pants, gloves, hats, sunglasses and t-shirts. Trek Climb Ski Nepal invests heavily in the health, education and training of all our Nepalese workers.

We pay substantial garbage deposits for all our Nepal based activities and ensure we return all our hard waste in accordance with the requirements of the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC). We strictly adhere to minimal impact camping guidelines and always adhere to the  Leave No Trace  principles.

Are their any age limits and do you allow children on your trips?
Nepal is a challenging environment for very young children but from around 8 years onwards we can provide for children within most of our trekking itineraries. All persons participating on our Nepal adventures (irrespective of age) are required to undergo a medical health check prior to departure.

Are immunisations required for Nepal and if so what ones must I get?
Yes, a range of immunisations are essential prior to travel to Nepal. We recommend you visit your local doctor to discuss and arrange for these. Some very helpful information is available at The Travel Doctor in relation to travel to Nepal. Please allow a couple of months prior to departure to ensure the necessary course of immunisations can be administered.

Do I need a tourist visa for Nepal?
Yes, a tourist visa is required for Nepal. We can provide you with all the necessary forms and information to obtain your visa for Nepal. For current information about the visa process for Nepal (for Australian residents), we also recommend you visit the Nepal Consulate online.

How fit do I need to be for a trekking, climbing or skiing adventure in Nepal?
We require a medical certificate from all our guests to ensure you are in good health. When it comes to fitness, the fitter you are the more you’ll enjoy your trip. We can recommend a fitness program to help prepare you for your adventure. Generally, a moderate level of fitness will be acceptable for most trekking adventures with a higher level of fitness essential for trips involving climbing and skiing.

Do you cater for single travellers?
Yes definitely. Many of our guests are singles and enjoy the company of like-minded travellers on our group adventures. Our advertised trip prices assume all accommodation is provided on a twin-share (same gender) basis. A single supplement accommodation option is also available.

How much experience do I need to join one of your trips?
Your safety will always be our number one priority and as such, some of our climbing trips will require you to have a degree of experience. Our trips vary in difficulty from easy to challenging level trekking, to introductory level mountaineering through to more advanced climbs which will naturally require more experience on your part. If your trip involves skiing or snowboarding then you must be an advanced level skier or snowboarder to join that trip. We will always be able to recommend a trip compatible with your experience so please contact us to discuss the options.

What clothing and equipment do I need?
As part of the booking process, we will provide you with a comprehensive clothing and equipment list relevant to your trip. We supply sleeping mats, down jackets and down sleeping bags for all our trips and all the necessary technical equipment for all our climbing adventures.

Where do we stay in Kathmandu?
