FAQ

What is the primary packaging for our journey?

Travelers must be aware of what they are traveling with them. Several items should be included in your package list. Trekking facilities, clothing, drugs, a visa, the appropriate documents, debit cards, and so on must be packed.

Will we require any permits to visit the Annapurna Region?

Yeah, the answer. The ACAP and our good Old Management Information Card from Trekker require the Area of Annapurna Conservation Permit (TIMS card). For a specific walker, this cost $20 apiece. The Nepal Council for Tourism (NTB) in Kathmandu allows hikers both to do this. With you, you are going to require your passport and passport photos.

Is it necessary to get insurance while walking in the Annapurna Region?

Although insurance is not required, it is the safest method to Trek in the Himalayas. If your Annapurna trip is less than five days, you can avoid the insurance; however, insurance is suggested if your Trek is longer than five days.

Is travel possible during the rainy season?

When it comes to travel during the rainy season, we do not recommend it to our tourists. If you go during these months, you will undoubtedly face a range of challenges. It’s not going to be a pleasant day. There’ll be slick roads to contend with, as well as a bevy of additional difficulties.

The Trek to Tea House is what kind of journey it is?

Teahouse hikes imply that you spend your hiking in a modest native lodge or a mountain home each night.

The lodging is simple, with only 5-10 rooms and a communal area. The majority of Nepalese treks are teahouse treks with accommodation maintained by locals.
