Frequently Asked Questions

You don’t need to panic about your transition from air port to your hotel. The airport representative of Broad Adventure will be waiting your arrival with a play card on their hand containing your name. He will safely carry you up to your hotel.

In Kathmandu valley, three/four star hotels are used including breakfast. Even in Pokhara the provision is same with hotels rated two/three stars. During the trekking teahouse/lodges provide you basic but very clean and hospitable facilities with a mattress or blanket included. We can even provide you our sleeping bags but you need to return them back. But its far better to carry your own sleeping bags which you can use under any circumstances. Generally the rooms are single but we can even give you a double one as per the necessity.

Through out the major trekking routes in Nepal , most of the teahouses serve you varieties of food most of which being vegetarian. Some of the foods available here are noodles, tuna bakes, pasta, potatoes, eggs, dal bhat (typical Nepalese food), bread, soup, fresh vegetables. Apart from these foods you they will also provide you desserts like pan cakes, apple pies, etc. Garlic is considered key ingredients in most of the food because it helps you to acclimatize in these surroundings. Also you can enjoy drinks like hot chocolate, lemon and various types of soft drinks. Meat is also available in various parts of the trekking routes.

Broad Adventure is much concerned about the safe and comfortable means of transport for their valuable clients. The form of transport we use hugely depends upon the geographical structure and the size of person it has to accommodate. For the purpose of city tours, sightseeing and pickups we use private tourist buses. Vehicles can vary from small cars, vans to larger buses depending upon the size of the group. As the roads in Nepal are much narrower and steeper, small sized vehicles are generally used which provide greater flexibility and ease. Air conditioned buses are used for hotter regions.

Trekking is directly correlated with Climatic and seasonal conditions.
The ideal time to trek in Nepal is between October to mid-December and mid-February to mid-June. Trekking during monsoon period (June to August) is not so meaningful.
Weather in the mountainous region is dynamic and cannot be predicted accurately. Nights are generally cooler than days. Its chilling cold in winter (January and February) but the weather is warm and beautiful if the sun is shining. There will be some snow fall in December, January and February. Temperature range in these regions varies quite considerably from 20 deg C to -15 deg C.

You can get this facility in your hotel reception upon paying some additional service charges. But you have to carry all other equipment like chargers, adaptors, etc.

Along the trekking routes there are facilities of telephone in different villages from where you can make the telephone calls.
Credit card facility is available only in some major cities. So in other remaining places almost every transaction is made in cash

It all depends upon your spending habits. Generally in Kathmandu and Pokhara u can allocate $8-10 for every lunch/dinner. And $8-10 is adequate to buy other things such as drinks, chocolate, cigarette, etc.

It’s not compulsive. And also something which cannot be spoken freely about. But tipping the guides and porters has been observed ranging from $10-$1000. It clearly speaks about the gratitude shown by the trekkers for their guides and porter for their invaluable work.

With due concern for the future of staffs, insurance has been done in various categories.
Please check the following list:
  • A valid passport that should be valid for at least six months after returning from the tour and its photocopy.
  • Travel insurance with its photocopy
  • Cash and travelers cheque, keep numbers and proof of purchase separate
  • Flight tickets
  • Contact no for emergency for T/C’s, banks, insurance and family. 

During the trekking holiday it's better not to hurry to make the trip to a final point. Depending upon various conditions and circumstances we can add some additional days at your request with additional costs to cover guides, porters, accommodation and food.
