    In some villages, it is possible to charge the devices, but it costs extra to charge the camera and other electronic equipment. It usually costs between $3-$6 per hour. So it's expensive. The best idea is to bring a power bank

    Yes, for the first few days, it's possible to have telephonic communication. In some villages, you can make local and international calls from telephone provided by the guesthouse owner after paying the price directly to them.

  • 17. Can I add extra days to my trekking trip ?
    If you need extra day to complete the trekking, you'll need to inform the guide in advance and the guide will let the company know. Adding a day to trekking can result in many changes in other arrangements such as transportation, guides' schedule, flight details, hotel bookings and all, so we really don't recommend this to our clients unless there's an emergency cases. But it's true that those changes could be made but it will cost extra. The best way to do it is to inform the agent company about it.
