There are some ATMs in a bigger town on treks. when you go remote area idea to carry enough cash. some trekking area has bank and ATM, they might not be reliable.

How early should I book my trip?

We recommend you book your trip in few month advance. Even you arrive and want to organize your trip we accommodate LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS. However, for Trekking like the Everest region, we need to reserve the flight so we highly recommend earliest is best for us.

 What are your payment terms?

You need to pay 30% of the total price as advance deposit to confirm reservation before arriving in Nepal and the remaining balance of the payment shall be paid when you arrive in Kathmandu.

What essential documents/items do I need to bring with me?

You must bring a valid passport (must be valid for up to 6 months, keep an extra photocopy just in case), a copy of your travel insurance, cash, flight tickets, emergency contact numbers of insurance and family members and any medications.

How much extra spending money should I bring?

This depends on the destination you will travel or trek. There is something you spend your money on throughout the trek other than the alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks, Hot shower on the trek, Tipping, and shop round on the trek. On the other hand, Kathmandu is a shopper’s paradise. Frequently purchased items include hand-woven Tibetan carpets, hand knit woolen goods, hats, outdoor clothing and equipment, cashmere clothing, shawls, pashminas, Buddhist memorabilia, carved masks, puppets, wood carvings, and jewelry, etc. we suggest you bring $200-$350 US dollar. You can only buy Nepalese Rupees in Nepal. There are ATMs in Kathmandu where you can withdraw Nepalese Rupees Credit cards can be used to purchase expensive items but there will be an additional charge for this service.

 Is Nepal Eco Adventure guides/porters insured?                        

Yes our company trekking staff including guides, porters, cooks, Sherpas all of them are insured. we have bought insurance for all our staff from Neco Insurance. Their insurance cover up to $5000 USD.

 How much should I tip to my guide and porter?

Tips do not form any part of the wages of guides, porters and other trekking crews. but they are expected by the porters, guide, Sherpa and cook. it is a nice way of saying thank-you to someone who will play a large part in your trekking experience and who will prove invaluable to you on this trip. Our porters  and guides will be paid more than working for other big tour and trek companies. we suggest to tip 10-20% of total trip cost. This amount must be given in Nepalese rupee. The porters live in small hill villages several days walking from the nearest bank or money changer. I will suggest you to be generous about tipping job they have done for you.
