Frequently Asked Questions

    • What immunizations will I need?

      No vaccinations are compulsory fro travelling in Bhutan, but we do recommend you are covered for diphtheria TB, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, *malaria, typhoid, polio and tetanus.

      We also recommend:

      · A dental check-up prior to travelling.
      · That you know your blood group in case of emergency.

      If you have any pre-existing medical conditions which might affect you on tour, you make these known to your tour leader and Ace the Himalaya at the time of your booking.

    • Do you guys have a PAC Portable Altitude Chamber?

      Yes, we do have PAC but we don’t use it for Everest Base camp trek since you only have to stay a night above 5,000 meters. We will surely provide one if required.

    • What is the temperature rating of the sleeping bag that you lend to trekkers?

      The temperature rating of the sleeping bags we provide are about -10 deg C, we can provide liner or extra blanket if the sleeping bag is not warm enough for you.

    • Will there be a place to store items/clothing not required for the trek?

      The hotel in Kathmandu does provide the free storage services. So you can leave all your items that are not required for the trekking at your hotel.

    • 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.

    • Where do we toilet along the trail? Is it similar to Kilimanjaro and just wherever we can find privacy?

      At most cases, you can use the toilet provided by the tea houses/lodges on the trail but normally in case of emergency, you just do toilet along the trail wherever you find privacy.

    • 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 (Namche Bazaar, Lukla), we arrange guesthouse with hot shower. And in rest of the places, hot water in the bucket will be provided for the shower; it would cost you extra about USD 3-4 per 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.
