Frequently Asked Questions

    • Do you use yaks/porters on the trek or do we carry all of our own gear?

      Whilst on the trek, our porter will take care of your luggage. All you need to carry is your small day bag for your personal belongings like camera, water bottle, sun cream etc.

    • Can I add extra days to my trekking trip?

      Holiday should never be about making it to the final point quickly. Along your trek, we can add days at your request with additional costs to cover guides, porters, accommodation and food.

    • How much additional money do I need per day?

      It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu and Pokhara, you can allocate USD 10 to USD 15 for a lunch and a dinner. USD 15 to USD 25 per person a day will be enough to buy meals, bottles of water, chocolates, pay for the hot shower and a few drinks during the trekking.

    • Can I use credit cards in the places I visit in trekking?

      In Kathmandu and Pokhara, yes – to some extent. Once you are out of the cities, all you need is cash. Please change the currency in local Nepali Rupees before you go to the mountains.

    • Is there any communication while we are on trekking?

      There are telephones in some villages along the trekking routes from which you can make international calls. All our guides are equipped with the local mobile phone. You may wish to pass the number of our guide to your family for the callback or you can make a call from the guide’s mobile and pay him directly for the international call too.

    • Can I charge my digital camera or other equipments on my trip?

      These facilities will be available in most of the places in your hotel reception by paying some service charges. Remember to bring TWO and THREE pin travel adapters!

    • What is the weather & temperature like in trekking?

      Every trekking trip up to the mighty Annapurna presents its own amazing, unforgettable moments that live forever in the hearts and minds of those brave enough to make the climb. One of the most unpredictable elements of the Annapurna region is the weather. If you’re not properly prepared for the twists, turns and volatility of the conditions that occur in this breathtaking region, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant situation. Here are some weather basics to help you ensure that you come to the Himalayas, well equipped and with preparation to face anything.

      Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime in the Annapurna region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. Above 3500 meters, during the day, the thermometer could reach as high as 25 degrees C, only to dip down as low as -15 degrees C in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the months and seasons.

      Spring – March / April / May / June
      Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Annapurna, although it can become somewhat crowded. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen, as well as different species of flowers in the lower altitude.

      During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C with a maximum of 25 degrees C and a minimum of -5 degrees C in the morning and for areas above 4000 meters at night.

      July / August to Mid-September is Monsoon Season
      This season is not really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes, below 3500 meters. In areas above 4000 meters, it rains sometimes and although it is also sometimes dry, very few people travel during this season. The excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it is also the best season to avoid the crowds. The maximum temperature during the monsoon season averages 30 degrees C during sunny days with a minimum -5 degrees C in the morning and at areas above 4000 meters at night. The average temperature tends to hover around a comfortable 22 degrees C.

      Autumn – End of September / October / November
      Similar to springtime, autumn is also crowded in the Annapurna region, but it’s one of the best times to trek. While it lacks the beauty of flowers, the clear blue sky can be seen, including the incredible views from the trail.

      Winter – December/January/February
      Cold and less crowded season. The average temperature during the fall is 15 degrees C with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

      Regardless of time of year, trekkers should always plan accordingly and bring clothing for both cooler and warmer temps. Layering is always recommended, as are pants that can double as shorts. For a full list of clothing and materials to bring to account for various temperatures and weather changes that can occur in the Annapurna region, trekkers should work closely with their travel provider. This will ensure that the adventure will be enjoyable no matter what the weather is, and there is every possible scenario to be taken into account.

    • What sort of food can I expect in trekking?

      Most teahouses (lodges) in Annapurna Base Camp trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat (rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – eat some every day. In many larger villages you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you’ll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to destination.

      Please note that foods are not included in the price. Depending on your spending habit you will need about USD 150 to USD 250 per person for the food. You can easily purchase the food from the lodges/guesthouse on the way.

    • What sort of accommodation can I expect in Kathmandu, pokhara and in trekking?

      We use standard rooms at two or three-star hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes, teahouses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you Ace the Himalaya sleeping bag and down jacket, if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping equipment. The lodges in trekking routes usually provide single and double rooms or occasionally a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and are always outside the room.

    • Will somebody come to pick me up at the airport upon my arrival?

      Yes, our airport representative will be there to greet you at the airport. S/he will be displaying an Ace the Himalaya sign board outside the airport terminal. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel by our tourist vehicle.
