Useful Information

Hotels

We stay in comfortable hotels throughout the tour.

Transfer Time

The transfer time for the main tour between Kathmandu Airport and the hotel is approximately 25 minutes, depending on traffic.

Included Programme

A sightseeing programme is included in your touring package. On the free days there will be time for optional excursions along the way, and your Tour Leader and your local guide will provide this information.

More to Explore

There will be several optional activities available to you during the course of your holiday, full details of which will be given out at the Information Meeting by your Tour Leader. Your Tour Leader will arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.

Flight over Mount Everest - $204

Gratuities

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides, porters and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £70 (or the equivalent amount in local currency). Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate% toadd on.

Temperature

Average daily maximum: 
Kathmandu 20°C Nov
Chitwan 19°C Nov
Pokhara 15°C Nov

Dress Code

During the day when sightseeing, we recommend casual, lightweight cotton clothing. During spring and autumn the night temperatures in the mountains often dip below freezing, making warm gear essential. You will find that smart casual wear is acceptable, even in the best hotels during the evening. We would recommend a lightweight raincoat and an umbrella or hat for protection against rain or sun. Comfortable shoes are a “must” for sightseeing. From time to time, your guide will advise you about observing local customs. On certain occasions it will be necessary to wear clothing covering one’s shoulders and knees.

NB

A reasonable level of fitness/mobility is required as we include plenty of sightseeing/travelling, sometimes with early starts. There is a significant amount of walking on this holiday particularly due to the layout of the towns and activities featured.
