After we receive your deposit, we'll send you a detailed document with a clothing and equipment list, invoice, insurance information,  a Medical form and other information needed to prepare for your trip. Final trip details and rendezvous instructions are sent about three weeks before departure.


Are trip delays a possibility?

Yes, we are going into an area where conditions can change rapidly. We do our best to keep to the itinerary schedule.


What physical conditioning do I need for the tour?

As you will be walking for up to 6-7 hours per day we suggest that you train by  walking and hiking regularly, 1- 5 hours a week.


Do I need any vaccinations?

We recommend you consult your doctor.


Is there a dress code for the region?

Not really, hiking clothing works well in that area.


Does the altitude present issues for visitors?

Not normally, the climb to the maximum altitude of 12,000 feet is very gradual and takes place over a number of days.
