There are plenty of water stations on each stop on the route. You can easily fill up the bottle from the open taps. We recommend that you bring water purifier tablets with you or at least get it from Kathmandu before you depart for trekking. You can also buy mineral waters but we usually recommend tap water which is pure and it helps us not promoting plastic bottled water.
We mostly use the comfortable and efficient vehicle so that you may not get a problem during the ride. We used private or tourist vehicle for the sightseeing in the Kathmandu. Depending on the nature or group sized also we used cars, minibus, vans or jeep for the travelling along the narrow and bumpy roads of Nepal. Mostly we used AC vehicles for your comfort.For domestic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla to Kathmandu we use Tara air, Yeti air, and Goma air which are the popular domestic airlines in Nepal.
March to June and September to November are the best months to climb Mera Peak.
Weather in the mountains is difficult to predict. It usually snows heavy during the months of January, February and December.
Usually, we have to walk about 7-9 hours a day. But it shouldn't be taken as certain thing. Because number of hours of walk really depend on clients' speed. So it's really relative.

In some villages, you can make local and international calls from telephone provided by the guesthouse owner after paying the price directly to them. in higher altitude regions, we usually have satellite phones with our Sherpas or guides.

During trek please use comfortable and flexible dress. While trekking during the day at lower altitudes, lightweight trekking trousers and T-shirts are recommended. It's always a good idea to carry a waterproof jacket and some warmer clothing with you though as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm. Good shoes are of great importance. They must be comfortable.

For mountaineering, you will require special clothes that can be bought or hired from us.
