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).

It is also important to make sure that you can stay warm and dry in just about any conditions. Expect the unexpected!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Langtang a beautiful destination

Rating:


I had a great experience and fun with Classic Outdoors for our trek to Langtang Valley in April 2014. Besides, I had a wonderful time with Giri.  I made my first hike with Giri to Kyianjin Ri together which is an overall best experience.

Langtang to Kyanjin Ri

Rating:


It was a marvelous experience to be in Langtang. Frankly saying I was slightly confused about the destination I chose. Langtang was destroyed by the earthquake in 2015 but I was sure that I wanted to go to Langtang at any cost. We walked across a village completely flatten by the earthquake. Climbed up the peak of Kyanjin Ri. Our guide was experience and accommodative. He and the porter arranged all our trekking needs ensuring our safety and enjoyment. Trek cost was reasonable. Thank you so much Classic Outdoors for the most amazing trip.

Best Trekking agency

I got in connection with Classic Outdoors via an online chat. At the moment I was not sure which trek to choose from. But was for sure that I would be visiting to Nepal. I have heard a lot about Nepal through my friends at the University. Kritee then gave me various options for trekking. I decided to take a while and go through the programs. Later I decides that I would go for the Langtang Valley Trek. The information that I got and arrangements they made where perfect and super helpful. They know allot about the region, and the good thing is that they know it from own experience. I am happy that I chose them as everything from the logistic to transport was great. Would definitely recommend them and go again there myself.
