We also arrange TREKS FOR SINGLE WOMAN. If none of our fixed group departure dates work for you and you do not have anyone to accompany you, you can still be able to make your preferred trip with us. There is absolutely nothing to worry about making it solo trip. We assign local guide, porters etc who you can trust your life with.

Normally for a group, we provide 1 main guide, 1 assistance guide along with 1 porter for every 2 trekkers. Moreover, for every additional 2 trekkers, 1 more assistance and a porter will be provided.

  • Trek Guides and staff.

For trekking, we provide local experienced trek guide who can communicate well with the guests and explain well about the trails, customs and traditions of the local community living in the area. The role of the trek leader is to ensure that the trip runs smoothly. He will share their local knowledge, co-ordinate the day to day running of the tour. If you have any problems on the tour, please let your Trek Leader know so that steps can be taken to put it right.

We are a well stabilized adventure company and we employed professional trek leader (who are based on English speaking and few are multi-lingual's) and required crew member (they have basic knowledge of communication).

And our guides are intimately familiar with all local castes and customs along the trails and will share with you many cultural insights that are not covered in any guide book.

  • Altitude Mountain sickness

AMS is the abbreviation for Acute Mountain sickness also termed as the High Altitude Sickness. AMS is one of the challenges that the trekkers/ climbers might face during their climb in the mountains. As you reach higher in the altitude the oxygen level gradually decreases. If a person tries to climb too quickly then there is a higher chance of getting AMS. The major symptoms of AMS is headache, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tiredness, difficulty in sleeping. However, AMS can be avoided by using some precautionary measures such as drinking plenty of water, eating enough food and walking in the steady pace. Our experienced guides who have been working in the Himalayas will help and instruct you for further measures.

Classic Outdoor will provide a well-qualified and experienced guide who has a good knowledge about AMS as they can recognize the early symptoms and advise medications for instant relief. We have designed our trips in such a way that the clients get full acclimatization and proper rest. You will also be provided with a Gamow bag upon request at an additional charge which is considered a major gear to reduce the effect of AMS. In the worst case scenario, we shall arrange a rescue and evacuation using a helicopter whose cost should be covered by your travel insurance.

  • Acclimatization

We are experts at operating at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our treks are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on hiring basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness, and our leaders are trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.

  • Physical Fitness

We strongly recommend our clients for consulting the doctor before planning your holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local GP about which vaccinations to have before you arrive in Nepal. Your doctor will advise current inoculation requirements. If a doctor has recommended against travel or indicated travel may be inconvenient then inform us of the details. On all trekking and exploratory trips technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination. We strictly maintain hygiene foods on the trek. We carry extensive medical kits and, if the need should ever arise, we are able to evacuate seriously ill group members by helicopter. We run regular first aid courses for our all trekking guides and Sherpa helpers.

Poonhill Trek- A great memory

Rating:


I came across Classic Outdoors online while I was surfing various websites for offers regarding the Ghorepani and poonhill trek. I was pleased with their instant answers to my infinite questions asked out of my insecurity and curiousness. The guide was very professional and helped me throughout the journey. He seemed to be trying to make be happy and satisfied. On the way, I met several other people trekking. I had a blast and I am glad that I chose the best company who assigned the perfect guide.

Astonishing Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Rating:


It was my first time in Nepal and also my first time trekking and I really had a great time. Earlier I was not sure if I could walk for longer hours and it was safe for me as I was travelling alone. After having an amazing time I would highly recommend Classic Outdoors for making the trekking experience great and enjoyable. I was very impressed as the guide treated me more as friend than as client. 
The views along the trek are both beautiful and breathtaking. Kathmandu is nice and busy, also dusty as I was told that the roads were on expansion process. Whilst Kathmandu was a bit dusty Pokhara was cleaner and much more beautiful. I really enjoyed my stay at Pokhara roaming around the streets. Had nice walks in both places as I got such positive vibes.
Many thanks to my guide Ganesh who was the best. He was friendly, very knowledgeable, goes out of his way to make everything settled and cares for you all along the trek. Not forgetting sujan my porter.
Overall, I would like to thank you all for your excellent service. I will definitely be back!

Amazing experience, company you can trust

Rating:


Classic Outdoors is an amazing company. I went on their Annapurna Panorama trek with two others friends. During the trek we were treated extremely well and our guide always made sure we were comfortable. I highly recommend Mahendra, our guide. He went above and beyond when after the trip was over I got food sickness and he came to the hospital to help take care of me. As I stated, at this point the trip was over and yet he still came to help me. I should also note that we never got sick on trip. You won't regret booking your holiday with Classic Outdoors.
