Good to Know

1) Physical Fitness
Tent peak is less than 6000 Mtr so it   is less technical peak, so before climbing your guide will train you about some climbing technique as well as introduce with climbing gear.One should be physically fit  before to do the any trekking and mountaineering. It is long hike so without any training the first two/three days will tough for you. So some basic physical fitness like  squat, Mountain climbers ( which can be done in home),running,biking , stair climbing,and swiming will help lot to do trekking  in the mountains, so it is highly recommanded  2/3 months prior to your departure for the trekking or mountaineering.

(2)Foods and Drinks
While in the mountain,  it is highly recommanded you to drink plenty of fluids like water,soups, teas  as well as foods. We will provide the sufficient and hygiene food as per your choice in whole trek.However some private snacks as chocolates bars, cookies are also highly recommanded which you can take from kathmandu or you can buy on the way in lodges or in shops.

(3)Drinking water
One should drink at least 3-4 litres of water every day in order to get  hydrated the body which helps lot to be away from altitude sickness.YWe highly recommend you to carry the reusable water bottle and  buy boiled water in lodges/teahouse which also makes your sleeping bag very warm while going to bed, to use sterpin or take chlorine or iodine tablets  to purify the drinking water.While in Climbing we will have our own kitchen crew, so we will have properly treated water to fill up the bottle.

(4)Best time to Travel
Spring ( Mar-May)and Autumn ( Sep- Nov) are  known as best months to trek in Nepal becuase of the stable clear dry skies which permits to enjoy the spectacular mountain views but mostly lodges, hotels and trails are busy and crowded. Spring season is pleasant and suitable with warm tempreture for trekking and climbing the big mountains as well, so Everest  basecamp will be full of tents and looks like small tented city. Untill end of october, the tempreture will be mild cold. Weather will be stable with clear blue sky, dry.
Winter and summer are also good if you would prefer less crowdy, and ready to face the some challanges like snow, cold, and rain.Even in winter weather will always be clear but the these three months are coldest month of the year and sometimes snow falls. In Summer, It is very good to do trekking, tempreture will be warm, those who are keen to botanist, summer is the best but the due to unstable weather the views of mountains are very rare.
Both the Spring and Autumn season are good for peak climbing, in spring little crowd than Autumn.


5) Altitude Sickness
For the tent Peak  climbing we do proper  acclimatization Annapurna Basecamp  that will be proper acclimatization  for climbing Tent peak .In high altitude , the mass of oxygen will be less, so everyone feels difficult to breath as well as mild headache, dizziness etc.This is one of the biggest challanges in mountain.In the altitude, there are many rules to make our body adaptable to the  altitude. Acclimatization is one of the important factor  to adjust our body get used to the altitude. All our itineries are designed with proper acclimatization  day in every 1000 mtr climbing.The most important rules that we have to follow in altitude is walk slowly, keep drinking plenty of  fluids as water , soups etc to make our body hydrated, and keep our body warm. Our staffs and guide will always do their best  as they can, eventhough incase of any sickness,injury one should avoid their rest trip and should come down.

(6)Travel Insurance
It is compulsory to buy the proper travel insurance policy with genuine insurance company, it should cover the emergency helicopter evacuation as well as medical treatment incase of severe injury or sickness and Policy  should include coverage at the altitudes up to 6500 Mtr.

(9)Flight/ Road to Pokhara
Pokhara is entry gateway to trekking to  Annapurna basecamp region.There is regular fligt to Pokhara from Kathmandu daily which is much more comfortable and easy . It takes only 35 minutes to get to Pokhara.In other way there is  highway connected between kathmandu and pokhara, it is pleasant but takes min 6-7 hours to get to pokhara from kathmandu.


(10)Sanitation
In mostly places toilet are  common and need to use the same toilet  using by everyone else. Mostly place there may not be available of hand washing water, so highly recommend to take hand sanitizer by yourself and most importantly toilet papers or wet tissue paper should always  be in your day bag. For the night in climbing period, there will be toilet tent.
