Good to know

Dos

  • Smile and reply to the locals by saying the phrase “Namaste” or “Tashidelek”
  • Maintaining a distance from people either in front of you as well as behindhand of you is essential while making certain you walk in groups.
  • While you may want to try somewhat new on the trek make sure you refer the guide before preparation or trying somewhat newfangled.
  • Prepare yourself organized for the next day by inquiring the guide about the belongings you might need as you can bring things in your pouch while the rest of the belongings is carried by the porter for your easiness.
  • Donating in the donation boxes at monasteries will aid them out as they do not charge any pay as they do not have tickets for the guests.
  • While you may feel uneasy and uncomfortable while climbing upwards, please notify your guide so that the guide can assemble appropriate preparation for your suitability.

Don't

  • Make certain you respect the local culture and beliefs although it is uneasy for you to believe it and do not disapprove their beliefs and values
  • Without prior approval of the local people in the trek, do not take images of the local persons.
  • Do not sense clumsiness when folks gaze at you; they are just concerned in tourists and have no ill intents.
  • Spendthrift facilities are hard to find out throughout the trek while basic facilities can only be provided seeking the difficulty of the geographical regions you are located at
  • Make sure you do not damage the floras and faunas during the hike; be responsible about the environment around you.
  • Make certain that you do not be lavishly by providing money to people; such an act will only lift children and beggars from begging money from more visitors around the trek.

You can talk to us about this trip at any time. Kindly let us know when you will be available at the earliest convenience.
