Questions & Answers

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

    • August 31, 2016

      Would you be able to give me an idea of what price we are looking at for twin share, flying from perth WA with all internal flights and allowing money for meals that are not supplied; also any other fees that are not included, please. What is the best time to go, weather wise? Do you have to be really fit to do this trip ? Is there another option if you do not want to trek for the couple of days ?

      Thank you for your interest in TouRadar and in this amazing trip with World Expeditions.

      Unfortunately we at TourRadar do not handle any flights and so we would not be able to help you with this.

      With regards to the trekking please read this the following:

      Introductory adventures are designed with the first time trekker in mind. They are challenging enough to make it a real adventure holiday, however the daily physical exercise is limited to around six hours and altitudes generally less than 4100m. Introductory adventures are not necessarily easy. There will be some long steep ascents and some rough ground to cover. Remember trekking rarely involves flat terrain. *Two to three months prior to departure you should spend thirty minutes to one hour exercising, three or four times per week eg. Hard walking, jogging or cycling. To prepare for a walking holiday we recommend you take every opportunity to walk up and down stairs and/or hills, for leg strengthening and aerobic fitness. Please remember the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your holiday.

      Would you be able to give me an idea of what price we are looking at for the airfare from Perth WA (with all internal flights included)?

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.
