Group Size During Trek
Trekking in Nepal is regarded as rewarding experience for the nature lovers. In our featured website products, we generally run the trip with the minimum of 2 persons in a group. The given program is just a suggested itinerary which can be customized as per the client’s preference.  However, if you would like to travel independently, or with your friends, families for any number of people we would be happy to arrange a personalized trip only for you in your suitable period of time.
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). We also provide the training to our staff increasing their work efficiency. 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.

Trip safety
Once, you confirm your trip, it is our responsibility to make your trip wonderful without creating any difficulties. Hence, we have prepared our itinerary in such a way that it will properly acclimatize you. Also, we request you in advance to have regular exercises and make habits to walk in a daily basis. Similarly, during trek, you will be fully guided by our professional trekking guides and supporting team. They are properly trained in regards to safety and first aid. Even, we have every set up in case of emergency such as high altitude medicine and Gammow Bag (High altitude Chamber bag). Please note High altitude Chamber Bag is used to provide heat in your body and it is available on certain cost. Moreover, to let you familiar with altitude, you are suggested to walk slow and steady and ensure for proper acclimatization.

Climate and weather condition during trek
Weather in the mountains is extremely unpredictable. The nights are generally cooler and the days are warm. Winter (January and February) will be bit colder but the days can be quite beautiful and warm if the sun is out. There will be bit of snow during the month of January, February and December. It is also important to make sure that you can stay warm and dry in just about any conditions. Expect the unexpected!

Permits and Fees
In Nepal, you most require permits and fees to enter a certain areas such as World heritage sites, National Park, restricted areas along climbing as well. All the trip prices are including the cost of relevant permits and entrance fees. In case of any such conditions we will inform you if required any additional permit fees before you make a booking with us.

Travel Insurance
While travelling to Nepal, you are requested to have a travel insurance that should cover any comprehensive expenses possible to acquire due to medical issues or accidents. Especially, your travel insurance must protect air ambulance, treatment charges, rescue and evacuation, product cancellation and refundable charges, flight delay and cancellations. We suggest you to bring you travel insurance certificate or send us scan copy and required to issue from your home land and we do not arrange or sell insurance. 

Travelling in the Himalayas is full of adventurous; hence it is wise to choose a proper insurance policy. While choosing your insurance policy, make sure that it will protect all such unforeseen expenses. Your insurer should be well familiar with our itinerary that you have booked and must have agreed to cover all activities being undertaken during trip. Meantime, it is not compulsory that our all the assigned trip are facilities with Heli-rescue. You will not require heli rescue insurance for Tibet Tour as it is not possible to provide such facility. 

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.

Awesome!!!!!!!!!! Loved it!!!!!

I found Classic Outdoors to be very honest and excellent people and very well informed. I did Ghandruk Circuit trek with them as I did not have more days to spare. The best part of my trip was a visit to Ghandruk a gurung village. I had a wonderful time there. I kind of like the small houses with the stone paved pathways and not to forget the beautiful views of the Himalayas. I enjoyed each and every moment spent there. If you are looking forward to visit Nepal, don't look further just go with them. Thanks Sadhana for guiding us so well and thank you Classic Outdoors.

Awesome trek

My husband and I had been planning a trek to Annapurna Region and I got in connection with Classic Outdoors. I really appreciate that kritee was very responsive thankful for her timely assistance. We got in touch with Classic Outdoors via an online chat and later through the emails. It took almost 7 months for us to book the trip. From the day we landed in Kathmandu, we had our guide a very cheerful person Dipak who was waiting to pick us up from the Airport and made sure we felt at ease in the place and our journey began. We had a fabulous trip to Ghandruk. Personally, I adored the stunning views of the Himalayas witnessed during the trek. The villages along the stone paved streets was an awesome sight to remember. The great warmth and not to forget the meal “dal” bat will be remembered.

I strongly suggest everyone planning to visit Nepal to engage with them, as their network is very good and they maintain very good standards as hosts.

An Amazing & Unforgettable Trip!

A chance to experience the energizing fresh mountain air and sunrise at the Ghorepani Poonhill, with the stunning panoramic views of snowcapped mountains after 2 days trekking is one of the unforgettable trip I had. 

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is one of the picturesque trek in Nepal. It is an easy trek for professionals but a challenging one for beginners. The walk that normally takes 5-6 hours a day had somewhat took 7-8 hours for me and my cousin, well it worth’s taking it slow. Just being in that moment is a dream come true for us. I got to experience my first snow with the scenic beauty.Had experienced the hospitality of Nepali people and even tried their traditional costume. The joy that I felt when I first see the snowcapped mountains on the first day of the trek is indescribable, adding the warm feeling from everyone seeing their genuine smile and greetings.

A big thanks to Classic Outdoors for such an amazing experience in Himalaya. They are blessed with warm people and we are happy that we met them. The memories and bonding we had on this trekking adventure will always be cherished. Himalayas is vast, but getting a glimpse of its beauty with its beautiful people even for a short while was an experience I won’t forget. Hopefully next year we will see you all again.
