Who should attend?

Is prior trekking experience a must?

We often have first-time trekkers join our groups, so even without experience, you’ll find yourself among like-minded individuals. Your fitness level should comfortably support full-day walking. While previous hiking or trekking experience is beneficial, it’s not mandatory.

Are solo female travelers secure during Himalayan treks?

We prioritize the safety of all our trekking participants, irrespective of gender. Nepal, overall, is a safe and hospitable destination for foreign visitors. We maintain enduring relationships with the lodges we use, ensuring they are safe and trustworthy. Additionally, our guides consistently keep track of all guests’ whereabouts during treks. Traveling in small groups enhances our ability to maintain regular communication for added safety.

Are there specific age restrictions for trekking in the Himalayas?

There’s no strict age limit on our expeditions – it’s more about good health and enthusiasm! We’ve welcomed families with children as young as 7 years old on the Everest Base Camp Trek, while our older trekkers have been in their late 70s. For families, we recommend arranging a private trek and allowing a few extra days. Feel free to inquire about tailored arrangements.
