PHYSICAL CONDITION REQUIREMENT
Discovery Mountain Trek can offer advice and recommendations about health requirements but it is the individual responsibility of each trekker to acquire any necessary documents and medical care. The information on the technical sheet provided is indicative, it is your responsibility to check with the authorities concerned for the exact requirements for your chosen destination at the time of travel. If you do not obtain any necessary medical consultations or travel documents and are not allowed to enter a country, or suffer personal injury or death as a result, we have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. It is your responsibility to comply with the regulations and procedures of police, customs and health at all times throughout your trip.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
The best time to trek to the Everest Base Camp Trek is in spring (February to May) and autumn (September to November). The temperature is moderate in these seasons and guarantees amazing views through the trip. Although this trek can be undertaken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

GUIDE & STAFF ARRANGEMENT
The most significant thing that makes this trek enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced and helpful Guide and crew member who have the ability of guiding our trek on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional Guide. All of Discovery Mountain Trekking Guide’s  are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Discovery Mountain only employs local Staff, who have knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region.

PORTER CARE
We are firmly committed to porter rights. We make sure that all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. Porters who become sick are treated with the same care and attention as other team members and we have previously used helicopters – at our expense – to rescue porters from dangerous situations. We support the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), making our resources available to them to help improve the working conditions of the porters. International Porters Progress Group.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS
The Everest Region is stunningly beautiful, but equally fragile. Future generations have just as much of a right to appreciate it as much as we do.  Therefore, we believe that the tourism industry has an obligation to protect and preserve it. Discovery Mountain employs a ‘zero impact’ policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. Discovery Mountain, therefore, enforces a number of do’s and don’ts. Please talk to your trek leader to avoid environmental impacts.

 TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is a condition upon joining any of Discovery Mountain’s  trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.

ACCLIMATIZATION
This trek’s itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.

     Annapurna Sunrise Trek is an ever popular trekking program in Nepal. Poon Hill at 3,200 meters is a famous place for one of the best sunrise views in Nepal. The vantage point of Poon Hill offers spectacular panoramic views of the Annapurna mountain range. You will hike up to Poon Hill before the break of dawn to watch the sun come up from behind the mountains, offering colorful views of sunrise and charismatic shades of golden color scattered over the Annapurna range. This is probably the best viewpoint of sunrise in the entire range.

   A trek to Poon Hill starts with a short hiking trail from Nayapul near Pokhara, taking you to the village of Ghorepani and back. This trek provides you an opportunity to capture exceptional views of mountain that are over 8,000 meters in height. Some prominent mountains visible from Poon Hill are Mt. Annapurna (8,093 m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) and other peaks such as Mt. Annapurna South, Mt. Nilgiri, Mt. Fishtail, Mt. Lamjung apart from green hills and valleys below. The views are glorious, the route is enchanting – all of which you will cherish from memories of Nepal.

   Considered an easy trek in the Annapurna region, it is the most relevant trekking program from Discovery Mountain for those who wish to see the grandeur of the majestic Annapurna Massif and beyond. The almost surreal views in the morning will make you think and wonder about the beauty of Nature at this far-flung location on the planet. Ironically enough, it is a reality that one can only witness nature’s exotic beauty in truly remote places!

   In this trek you will also be introduced to the general nature Nepal’s trekking trails. You will see hamlets and villages scattered throughout the hills; you will see how people live in harmony despite the geographical isolation. You will also live in the hospitality of the Gurung people, who are known for their bravery and are renowned as the Gurkha!

  This is an exciting trek suitable for beginners and experts alike. This region can be visited throughout the year, but we recommend you to avoid the monsoon season (July-August) as the mountains can be hidden in the rain-clouds. For views that are above excellence, try booking this program in late autumn to mid winter.
