Additional Info

Accommodations

We will be staying at Apsara Boutique Hotel, a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu; and teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis and Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 100. Bharal Adventure will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations.

Meals

All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu. There will also be welcome or farewell dinners for guests. While on trek, we have breakfast and dinner in the tea-houses/lodges we spend the night and lunch on our way to the next destination. Nepalese, Tibetan, the more common continental and Indian cuisines are common choices in the menu.

Leader(s) & Staff Arrangements

All the staffs in the trek would be well skilled, experienced, courteous and helpful and the crew members with the ability of operating our days on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best experienced and most professional leaders. All of Bharal Adventure's leaders are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Bharal Adventure only employs local staffs who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region(s). The trek and expedition leaders have undergone the following trainings:

  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • Trekking Guide Training
  • Eco Trekking Workshop and Adventure Meet
  • English, French and Chinese Language
  • Conservation and Biodiversity
  • Rock climbing, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

Porter Care

None of the trek is successful without a porter who always keeps supportive in the entire journey. Porter’s always have been a backbone for the trekking. It is their tireless efforts carrying supplies, equipment and baggage that make journeying to these remote areas possible. Therefore, we are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters - at our expense - to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. (International Porters Progress Group

Environmental Concerns

The Everest Region is no doubt an amazing wonder in Nepal. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do. Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Bharal Adventure employs a 'zero impact' policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Bharal Adventure, therefore, enforces a number of do's and don'ts. Please talk to your trek leader to avoid environmental impacts.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition upon joining any of Bharal Adventure's trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur  due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don't arrange or sell insurance.

Acclimatization

This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Experts agree that gaining elevation without proper consideration of AMS could be fatal. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. Therefore, our body needs time to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude thus resulting in a successful trip.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

The Long Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek. Travelers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day on an uphill and downhill trail will find this trek fulfilling. It is best that we prepare ourselves for the Everest trek by jogging and exercising regularly at least a month prior to the start of the trek. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp should be relatively easier for those who have experience walking/trekking in a high altitude environment. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is also important that we consult our doctor. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Bharal Adventure before booking the trek.

Best Time to Travel

The best time to trek to the Long Everest Base Camp is Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

The Annapurna Circuit with the best!

I first used Bharal Adventures three years ago when Arjun was my guide for my Everest Base camp trek. Arjun was very genuine, friendly and knowledgeable about the area and I felt very relaxed and in good hands. I adored the holiday and the beauty of the Himalayas so decided to return to Nepal again. This time to trek in the Annapurna region. I of course chose Bharal Adventures to be our tour guide company again. This again has been a fantastic experience.


The weather was unusually heavily snowy at times and meant that we had to turn around and change our plans slightly, which Arjun coped with very well. He was very flexible and accommodating and always tried his best to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our
trip to the fullest. I would recommend this company and this guide to anyone. He loves his country, its mountains and his job and it shows. A thoroughly great holiday, thank you Arjun and Bharal Adventures!

Amazing Annapurna – Incredible Nepal

Nothing prepares you for the Himalayas. Waking up every day to 5-mile high mountains is one of the most humbling and incredible experiences of my life. As a frequent traveller, this was my first time to Nepal, so I wanted to be sure my experience was going to match my expectations. On arrival, Arjun from Bharal was there to greet my partner and I with a smile - which he kept all week. Even when we were snowed in along the pass; walking slowly up the mountains and laying in a little too long - Arjun always made sure our needs were prioritized.

If you want a tour which is:

- Personal - Informative

- At your own pace

- Going to *the best places in Nepal

- One you will remember forever

I thoroughly recommend Arjun and Bharal. I came to Nepal as a tourist, to meet a guide and a porter. I left with 2 friends, incredible photos, lifelong memories and a promise we will return one day, with my daughter to tackle the incredible Manasalu!

Thank you Arjun! :)

Amazing trek in Kanchenjunga region!

Last November I traveled to Nepal to visit the remote area of Kanchenjunga. I'm from Spain and did the Kanchenjunga circuit (North and South base camps) with my Indian friend. After many mails sent to several trekking companies based in Kathmandu we only received overpriced offers, until we finally met Arjun, the manager of Bharal Adventures, and our expectations changed immediately. He provided us with reliable information, answered all our mails quickly and carefully and made an itinerary to suit us at a very reasonable cost, exactly what we were looking for since a long time. Once in Kathmandu, his partner Bijay came to the hotel to introduce himself and give me some instructions before the trek and all the assistance I needed. The day before the departure, Arjun and Bijay invited us to have dinner at their home to offer us a warm welcome, they were really friendly. As per the trek itself, our guide had good experience in the Kanchenjunga region and managed all the situations in a solvent way. Besides, we were very lucky with the weather and could enjoy the trek with its stunning views. It was really a fantastic experience. Once the trek finished, Bijay and Arjun came to my hotel to be sure we received a good service during the trek and say goodbye. I can only recommend this trekking company to all the people traveling to Nepal. You will not be disappointed.

Unforgettable once in a lifetime experience To EBC led by Arjun & 3 amazing porters

Our journey started in 3 different cities in Malaysia, 6 travellers in all - Myself and my good friend Ray started out from Johor Bahru, Suk(the only female in our group) & Ricgen's journey started from Mallaca, the 4 of us met with See and Su in their home town of Kuala Lumpur, (KL) Malaysia. 

6 of us met in KL and departed from KL international airport for Kathmandu Nepal. where Arjun Dhakal met us at the airport and we transferred to our hotel and finalised all details for the EBC trek.
The next day we flew out to Lukla and this is where the real adventure began.
The actual trip is a story for another time all I will say is that this adventure was absolutely amazing in fact so amazing that I'm contemplating doing ABC with Arjun next year sometime.
Arjun and his team were very professional, his personable character allows for a very relaxed but very organised approach to everything during our trip.
The EBC adventure was one of the most amazing adventures I have ever experienced I would add that this trip rates equal to The Kokoda trek I completed in Papua Nuigini.
I want to express my gratitude to Arjun Dhakal and his team at Bharal adventures you were amazing and I would recommend this team to anyone interested in doing EBC


Kind Regards
& friends for life

The incredible Kanchenjunga circuit with Bharal Adventure !

We were two persons intending to trek in the remote and restricted Kanchenjunga region. I am an Indian and was with a Spanish friend. After not getting positive responses from various organizations or getting quoted very high prices, we landed on Bharal Adventure. And it was a great experience right from the beginning. The extremely polite Arjun answered all of our queries patiently, tailored the itinerary according to our requirements and finally helped us with a knowledgeable guide for this 22 day trek. And when everything was done at a reasonable cost, we couldn't ask for more. The superb weather and views during the trek added to everything and the overall experience was fantastic. Highly recommended for all your adventures in Nepal !

Everest Base Camp Hike 26/11 – 6/12

Going to the Everest Base Camp was once an impossible dream to achieve. 
With Bharal Edventure, the impossible dream comes to a reality. Mr Suraj, our guides, Ganesh and friends who made it possible for me to reach the EBC. I would not be able to go through the tough journey with extreme environments without their help and encouragement. 

Thank you very much for the hospitality given by Bharal Adventure especially Mr Suraj and Mr Arjun. Thank you so much for making this once impossible dream become possible. This is truly the most valuable experience I ever have.

Everest Base Camp Trek Dec- 24 – Jan 05 2019

Da jeg rejste alene, var det vigtigt for mig, at få afklaret alle spørgsmål. Arjun var meget behlælpelig og tålmodig med at besvare alle mine spørgsmål inden trekket. Selve turen var en super oplevelse. Deepak var vores guide. Han er en meget sympatisk, sjov og hjælpsom ung mand, der hele turen havde god føling med, hvordan det gik undervejs. Vi havde mange gode snakke om hvordan livet er i Nepal, for tidligere generationer op til i dag.
Det var en fantastisk oplevelse.
Tak for det :-)

Atemberaubend und immer wieder schn

Everest view Trek mit schnen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich crate immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Hhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein fr thus ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer fr sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman act ich auf einen wunderschnen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen box, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, in view of that dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefhlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem suit ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank fr die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.

Solo travelers welcome!

I went to Nepal on a 9-day trek in the Langtang region a couple years ago. I was traveling on my own so I really appreciated to be with a trustworthy and friendly guide Sujan. I would definitely recommend his agency and would like to go back myself!
