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.

Jomsom Muktinath Trek ( March 23 to April 09, 2012)


One realizes right in the beginning that the chief manager of ACTUAL ADVENTURES, Kedar, feels really pleased pleasing his guests from all over the world. His large circle of friends and partners will allow you to get almost everywhere from everywhere within Nepal- and maybe also outside the country. During our stay in Nepal which lasted about two weeks we had to face several minor problems we probably could not have solved without Kedar´s and his guide´s assistance. No matter what sort of broblems might occur, Kedar Nerupane and his hilarious staff, by the way representing a mixture of versatile people of any age class, is never helpless. ACTUAL Adventures will enable you to spend an adventurous albeit safe round trip in Nepal. Our journey made us acquainted with the very heart of authentic Nepalese life, culture and hospitality from a very objective point-of-view, so that we can thereby say that we know Nepal by heart. If you have any questions concerning my feedback, please feel inclined to get in touch with me via E-Mail: .
