FAQs

1. Is altitude sickness a risk while visiting Nepal?

“Nepal is in the Himalayan mountains, right? So, that means I may suffer from altitude sickness? Yes or No. Kathmandu, Pokhara and most of the other historic cities are situated at an elevation of between 800 and 1,400 meters.

This means that there is no chance of altitude sickness if you stick to these areas. Head to the hiking trails of the Himalayas though, and as soon as you get above about 3,000m, then altitude sickness is a possibility, and the higher and faster you get higher, the higher the risk becomes.

Yes, it's safe to visit with a guide. They are aware of the risks and measure the safety while visiting the park.

All meals on full board basis will be provided during trek and Chitwan trip. Freshly cooked food is served all the time (western, continental and Nepalese, Chinese, Indian and Tibetan meals are available in all places). Three meals a day will be provided.
