    This was my second trek thru Ace, and just as with the 1st (EBC in 11/2016), everything lived up to &/or exceeded expectations! Our guides (Santosh & Rupesh) were exceptional and easily integrated themselves as part of our "team."

FAQs

    • 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 only.

    • 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.

    • Is Ace the Himalaya's staff insured?

      Our company insures all our trekking staff members, including guides, cooks, Sherpas and porters. Please browse though Company Information pages to view insurance details.

    • What opportunities will I have for shower along the trek?

      In major places, we arrange guesthouse with hot shower. And in rest of the places, water in bucket will be provided for shower.

    • Do I need to tip my guide and porters? How much would that be?

      This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 20 to USD 1000 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you to spend minimum 10% of your total trip cost for tipping entire local staffs, the ratio of tipping guide and porter will be given to you at the pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu before starting the trek.
