Good to know

Dos

  • Please refer to your guide if you are planning on trying something new throughout the trek.
  • Make certain you are well set for the upcoming day; Demand the guide about the things you might need next day as you can pack it in your pouch while rest is carried by the porter for expediency
  • Make sure you provide at the donation boxes at monasteries around the trekking zone as they do not have ticket charges for the guests around this trek.
  • If you feel uncomfortable and irregular makes sure you report your guide while climbing higher altitude as your well-being is the most principal factor while ascending higher altitude.

Don’ts

  • Make sure you admire the local culture and beliefs although it is uncomfortable for you to believe it and do not criticize their beliefs and values
  • Without preceding authorization of the local people in the trek, do not take pictures of the local people.
  • Do not sense clumsiness when folks gaze at you; they are just concerned in tourists and have no ill intents.
  • Do not expect profligate services round the trekking zone; basic services can only be provided given the geographical complications.
  • Make sure you do not destroy the floras and faunas during the trek; be answerable about the environment around you.
  • Make sure you do not be generous by providing money to people; such an act will only enhance children and beggars because it may increase them to beg more from visitors around the trek.
