Of Course ! The guide, both Trekking and Tour, working with Pink Mountain is a Nepali who is fluent in spoken English. Guides who are can converse in French, Spanish, Japanese, German or Italian are also available if necessary. Our guides are dwellers of mountainous regions of Nepal, living above 3000 meters.
Besides some resticted areas, and the region with special rules by government, such as Tibet, Mustang, Manaslu, Dolpo and Kanchenjunga, trips we run can accommodate any number of people, even just one. A group of Fifteen people, however is found to constitute the optimum size for a highly successful trip, hence we try to stick to that number. Group bookings of more than Fifteen people can also be arranged easily.
These come under the services we provide. It is however advisable to arrange international flights from your home, but we can provide assistance with this as well.
Travel Insurance is specially for your travel trip to the world. It's easier to arrange your insurance before you leave your home country. We can also arrange it for you here. Make sure that your insurance covers your medical as well as evacuation costs.
Nepal is not a dangerous country and in most cases, is safer than your home. The people are hospitable and religious tolerance is very high. During the trips, it is our personal responsibility for your well-being which we take seriously.
A wilderness trek takes trails off the beaten path and explores areas with no teahouses or lodges. These treks are often highly rewarding, but at the same time demands excellent logistics as camping and cooking which cannot be outsourced. It is highly recommended that you take guides, Sherpas, porters, trained cook et cetera on these treks. You can visit our wilderness trek page for more information.
Most of our trekking expeditions are to the foot of the mountains. We also manage expedition climbs of different peaks and can even take you on a journey to summit Everest, both from the Nepalese and the Tibetan side. Newbies can start with peak climbing, and gradually scale the higher ones. We can also arrange for climbing particular peaks, if you have any on your mind. Visit our peak climbing page for more information.
We provide sleeping bags, down jackets, tents, mattresses, trekking poles and kitchen equipment, which are all of the highest quality. However you need to bring your personal equipment, trekking shoes and climbing gears based on the trekking destination and the time of the year. You can email us for a specific list.
Nepal is a country with a huge geographical variance. So the weather and temperature conditions vary from one part to the other. The months ideal for trekking are from September to December and February to May. January is still good for tours, safari and low altitudes trek below 4000m.
Trekking in Nepal would be a great place to start. We arrange treks as per your preference, ranging from easy to difficult. It is our job to find a trek that best suits your goals and imagination along with your skill levels. Our guides will brief you on the skills you need to acquire, if required. The guides are professional and can train you during your expedition, so special courses are not much required.
We are an Eco-friendly trekking company. Since most of the packages are in natural settings, environmental degradation directly hampers the beauty of the route. We cannot compromise the environment for the sake of business profits. Along with the Kathmandu Educational Environment Project (KEEP) and the Dhaulagiri Association France we have been involved in a number of clean-up campaigns and awareness programs. News and reports suggest an environmental degradation in areas where treks and expeditions are undertaken, we however keep our best in preserving the beauty. Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footsteps.
It’s a team work with which our company works, so guides, cooks, Sherpas and porters are valued and fully equipped. We are the partner of Himalayan Explores Connections (Porters assistance project) and are provisioned with a good supply of clothes from this project. Insurance of each team member is fully taken care of.
