    A wonderful country with great people and stunning natural beauty. We had a very nice group of people as well which, of course, adds to the enjoyment. I highly recommend this trek but also highly discourage anyone from using Intrepid Travel. We were a little different in that we were leaving the group after Day 11 to climb a peak and then hike back ourselves with our porter. Intrepid told us we would simply lose the days in the tea houses but retain all other things paid for. I don't mind paying a premium for services but I expect a certain level of customer service as a result. Intrepid uses sub-par tea houses that, I suspect, are free to them. The tea house makes income from requiring you to eat meals there, charge for internet, charging of electronics, showers, etc. It’s a constant barrage of sales pitches that we quickly grew weary of. I understand they’re trying to make money but it's totally over-priced at the places Intrepid picked. For example, 400 rupees ($4 US) for a liter of water when the store outside sells it for 100 rupees ($1US). When we left the group, we found nicer teahouses ($4-5US per night) that offered free amenities-we were more comfortable and spent less while also having the freedom to eat wherever we wanted. My main gripe, however, is that Intrepid did not cover what they had committed and would not give us our flight info, hotel info, porter, etc despite numerous phone calls, emails, etc. They simply didn’t respond or told to call someone who told us to call someone else who told. . . . .you get the idea. We had to take a helicopter out of Lukla and they told us they’d reimburse us for 90% of the cost which didn’t happen. We spent half a day at the Intrepid office in Kathmandu as we couldn’t get any response and after several hours of heated debate they reimbursed us for about 80% of the return plane flight not the helicopter flight. I regret spending part of my vacation in such a negative manner and the time and stress of trying to get a response from Intrepid throughout the trip. One could hire a personal guide and a porter for much less than Intrepid charged us.

    AN incredible trip. Best to get active/be in shape beforehand to fully enjoy it. The guides are incredible and the sights are nothing I had ever seen before. I will remember this trip forever.

    Excellent trip and fantastic knowledgable and helpful guides. It was a bit too cold in December but the track wasn\'t too touristed or dirty so it was a trade off.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • December 1, 2016

      What do I need to know about this trip with regards to the accommodation?

      Accommodation on this tour will be made at local lodges - better known as teahouses - simple but comfortable places to saty in. Toilets and washing facilities are shared and rudimentary, and the food is plain and filling.

      In a teahouse, passengers are provided with small twin share rooms with twin beds, mattresses and pillows. At times, in high seasons, and in places where there are limited number of teahouses, passengers have to make do with dormitories. In some places, teahouses do not have access to electricity, depending on solar powered lighting instead.

      In more remote regions, teahouses do not have running water and toilets can mean just a hole in the ground. Hot shower facilities are available in some teahouses for a price, but in most of the places, a hot shower means a bucket of hot water, barely enough to wash your body.

    • November 1, 2016

      Are there any supplemental fees for solo travellers?

      There is no mandatory single supplement on this trip, however you can request one be added, should you prefer to have your own room.

    • November 1, 2016

      Is it necessary to bring a sleeping bag and mat?

      You can choose to bring your own sleeping bag or rent one in Nepal.

      TourRadar is fantastic as several major companies are on one web site. Plus I can streamline my selection to a day, month and destination, This is now my quick go to for an overview of possible trips. Rebate as always welcomed as I need to save a much as I can for my next trip. Also love that conversations I've had with the agents are recorded and I can see the transcripts. Very well done. Yes I would definetely recommend TourRadar.
