Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.

Nepal Climate information

Nepal is a landlocked country which lies in Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Nepal has monsoonal climate having four main seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.

Below is a general guide to conditions at different seasons:
January to March (winter): In this season temperature will decrease at often 0°C (32°F) at night, with extreme cold at high elevations. It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
October to December (autumn): These months are cool and clear which is due to the end of monsoon, there is little dust in the air so this is the best season to visit the hilly and mountainous regions.

Annapurna Circuit trekking- October 2010


Kedar was very attentive to my needs and even drove many hours to bring me new shoes when my boots gave me terrible blisters.  He also supplied me with a trekking pole for my trip and helped me pick out the gear I needed for the trek.  The guide was also very good and knew the trail well.  He was also flexible and let me go at my own pace.  Sometimes we pushed ahead and sometimes we rested when I got sick.  I had a great experience and would recommend Actual Adventures.Vaughn Alexander blackman

Annapurna Circuit trek-10 days


Binod Nepal was my guide for the Annapurna Circuit trek, which lasted 12 days. He was excellent in every way – I don’t think I would have had such an enjoyable trek without him. He knows the best local places to stay, to eat and to see. He is encouraging and accommodating and just plain fun to travel with. I would recommend Binod to any one of my friends and would prefer to have him as my guide for my next trek. Thank you Kedar and all team from Actual Adventure for this memorial and enjoyable trip.´
