1. Why are there no prices in Website ?
Himalayan Leaders wants to provide an honest price. Because there are so many parameters that will influence our price: some guests prefer 3* hotels while others prefer 5*. Some like to fly, some like to take the local bus. Showing all these different prices would take up more space then the actual trip…
A detailed list will be mailed on request.
2. Trip flexibility and local input from our guests ?
With Himalayan Leaders you have full control over your trip. It is no race to get from A to B but a beautiful experience. If you are tired, we adapt the pace. If you like the views, we stay longer ! As long as everything fits in your time schedule and you don’t miss your flight home !
3. Minimum group size ?
Well, that is the beauty about our philosophy : groups start from 1 guest ! Yes, one ! For every 6 guests we provide a guide, because we strongly believe in chemistry between the guide and our guests.
4. Do I need to be a top athlete for a trekking in Nepal ?
If you want to climb Cho Oyu or Ama Dablam with us, an excellent condition is a must. For our trekkings, the better your condition, the more you can enjoy it. We have made a gradation from A (easy) over B (moderate) to C (strenuous) and
Different aspects determine this grade :
Length of the trip,max. altitude, path conditions (rocky, snow, ice, …), your personal experience with trekking, climate, temperature, weather conditions, your physical condition?…
5. Preparations ? HELP !
We always ask our guests to answer a few questions so we can
provide a spotless service.
So you go to climb Mera Peak ? Can I hire crampons in Kathmandu or do I have to buy them myself ? What type of sleeping bag do I need ? Our mountaineering guides will provide their extensive knowledge to all your questions.
Physical condition :
According to your fitness level, we can prepare different training programs to get you in shape.
