    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 higher altitude treks where you may have to tread snow for long hours, good boots are available for rent in Kathmandu. For mountaineering, you will require special clothes that can be bought or hired from us.
  • 24. Is it possible to change the lodge if it is not in order ?

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions which might affect you on tour, you make these known to your tour leader and Swotah travelers at the time of your booking.
  • 27. What about the security during trekking ?
    We make sure to take security measures during climbing to make your expedition successful. We hire experienced and authorized Guides/Sherpas to safeguard your life in the mountains. We strongly recommend that you follow the guide’s instruction with utmost care.
