Nevertheless we want to warn our trekkers that the level of difficulty of a trek is very subjective. Weather conditions, your physical condition, possible health problems during the trek and other factors can have an important influence on the way you experience a trek.
|Short light daily stages along generally good passable trails. Maximum difference in altitude is less than 300m. Night temperature remains above freezing point.|
|Daily stages of 5 to 6 hours along good passable trails. Differences in altitude of up to 800m below 4000m. Night temperature can drop below freezing point.|
|Daily stages of 4 to 7 hours a day. The trails are usually well passable but some high altitude passes above 4000m can be steep. Possible snow on the high altitude passes can put your endurance to the test. A good condition is recommended.|

The helicopter, however, does not fly before the bill has been paid. As this bill usually mounts up and as the customers usually are in a awkward position to pay the bill,C'More Travels, is willing to advance this sum. However, our clients need to pay the bill before they leave Nepal. We recommend in any way to take out a supplementary assistance insurance policy.
