Weather

The Himalayas is a wild place and the weather can rapidly change. At lower elevations, the temperatures can vary from around 27°c to -7°c . At higher elevations, the temperature can drop below -23°c . The wind is the most chilling factor and can be quite variable. Therefore, it’s important to be prepared for all possible weather conditions.

Insurance

 Travelling in wild or isolated areas carries inherent risks which can lead to injury or possibly death. Some of the trails can have steep sided drops, loose gravel and areas of slippery rock. For this expedition you will be required to obtain sufficient and appropriate insurance. Read more…
