The package price covers almost everything, including:

  • Travel to and from the airport in Nepal
  • Travel expenses whilst in Nepal (for example, the bus between Kathmandu and Pokhara)
  • 17 nights accommodation
  • All meals during the 11 day trek
  • All breakfasts for the entire trip
  • Experienced trekking guide (who will be with us the whole 17 days)
  • Yoga and meditation sessions + 1:1 guidance with Jasmine during designated times

The extra costs you will need to consider are:

  • Flights. I recommend flying with Thai Airways or China Southern if you’re flying from Australia – once our group comes together I will be in touch so we can coordinate our flights
  • Meals outside of the trek (Nepal is cheap so $10 AUD will have us eating like Queens at each meal)
  • Massage/spa treatments in Pokhara after trek (very affordable compared to home!)
  • Fully comprehensive travel insurance. I recommended purchasing it when you book your flights to cover any unexpected cancellations that may occur.  Many credit card companies offer free travel insurance – yours might too so worth checking!
  • Visa on arrival (US $40 for 30 days). There’s no need to apply beforehand
  • Tips for our guide and porters  (read this article on tipping and why it is important)
  • Money for souvenirs
  • Trekking equipment such as hiking boots, sleeping bag, thermals and a down jacket. It’s possible to hire sleeping bags and jackets for about US $1 a day when you’re in Nepal!
