Kathmandu – Lukla Flights: Because Lukla airport is sensitive to changing weather conditions and the chance of a delay or cancellation of the flight is always there due to unforeseen circumstances.

Fitness: The trek will be in a very wonderful part of the Everest region. Expect to trek about 5-7 hours daily or about 10-14 kms per day. It is recommended that you prepare for the trek by suitable training such as climbing hills or stairs, jogging, and spending some time in the gym to improve your stamina for a few months prior to the trek. If you are quite fit and do sufficient training prior to arriving in Nepal the trek will be enjoyable, and it is suitable for fit people into their 60’s with a good level of fitness. If you have health issues please consult your doctor about the advisability of going on the trek. The highest altitude we reach is 5545 meters at Kala Patthar which offers a breathtaking view of many of the World’s greatest peaks. It is magnificent! Any trekking equipment such as walking poles, water bottles, and rucksack is very easily available in Kathmandu near our hotel.
Altitude sickness: Altitude sickness is indiscriminatory side effect of high altitudes which can effect both the extremely fit or unfit. Effects of altitude on the human body begin to appear at 1500 meters above sea level. It is possible that travellers at this altitude (and higher) may experience symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) also known as altitude sickness. It is very important that all travellers are aware of, and able to recognize, signs and symptoms of altitude on their body. In some instances trekkers will require medi-vac by helicopter or other means. Be sure your insurance policy specifically covers helicopter evacuation. Also check that your insurance policy does not exclude mountaineering or alpinism or you may have a difficult time settling a claim.
