Why Cho La Adventures?
With so many companies at home and abroad and a plethora of websites it is difficult to chose a quality operator. As with most things in life you tend to get what you pay for. In Nepal it is no different. Few companies either overseas or in Nepal can match our experience, quality of operation and innovation. Our prices are fair and value for money. Please contact us via email, Skype, Viber or an old fashioned phone call and you will discover we are what we say we are. We know Nepal.
Which Trip Is For Me?
Most of our trekkers follow the classic trekking routes with Everest Base Camp, Everest High Passes, Annapurna Dhaulagiri, Mardi Himal and the Annapurna & Wildlife being the recent best sellers. Your choice will be based on how long you can travel for, whether you would like an easy or challenging trip or perhaps if you’ve trekked before or want to get away from the busy main trails and are looking at our Explorer series of trips. The Our Trips pages outline all the options but we are here to advise you if you need help.
How Fit Should I Be?
All our treks are designed so you have plenty of time to trek comfortably during the day. A good level of fitness is required and the fitter you are the more you will enjoy your trek. You should begin a sensible exercise program a few months prior to arrival in Nepal.
The Additional Costs?
So that budgeting is easy once you have reached Nepal our trips are very much all inclusive. Airport arrival and departure transfers, hotels, a full trekking service with all meals on trek, sleeping bag, high altitude jacket and kit bag for use on trek are all included. All you have to take care of is international flights, travel insurance, visas, personal expenditure and tipping which is not included. Our trips are flexible and on most trips you can upgrade hotels, upgrade from coach travel to flights. Refer to each trip page where these costs and options are covered in the ‘Customise Your Trip’ page at the end of the trip Itinerary.
Best Time to Travel
Autumn – Mid September to November
Following the monsoon, the skies are generally very clear, the days warm and the evenings cool. This makes it an ideal time to trek in the Nepal Himalaya.
Winter – December to February
Generally you enjoy clear skies with crisp days, but cold nights are a bit colder especially in mountains. A great time to travel though for the pristine weather and great mountain views.
Spring – March to late May
This season presents a spectacular floral display with the blossoming of the giant rhododendrons. The weather is crisp with clear skies.
Summer – June to mid September
Nepal experiences monsoon rains from late May through to early September and this affects the views and the scenery. In Kathmandu and Pokhara the weather is hot and humid, not ideal to trek in the Everest region as flights to Lukla and back can be delayed or cancelled.
