This holiday involves going to high altitude. During the course of your trip you will be above 4000 metres for 1-2 days.

Before coming on this holiday you should get some basic advice on Tours at high altitude.
From mid June to August, we can expect to encounter temperatures as high as 40°C at Katmandu and 25°C in The Mountain Region. Weather is generally good throughout the summer season,with clear skies and little rain or snow. However, weather in mountainous areas is difficult to predict, and short-lived storms can occur at any time.
