Ans: Since the last few decades of time where most of the rural villages do have proper communication whether by cell- phone (mobile) or STD / ISTD, our guides will be in touch with the head office through their cell phone.

Sometimes Cell-Phone and Sat Phone do work and don'ts as Nepal is a hilly and mountainous country with a deep gorge and valley, whereas cell phone works on high hills, and might not when in a deep gorge hidden by hills and mountains.

The chances of a working cell phone are most positive you can try using a local popular SiM card.

Great Experience Trekking Near Kathmandu!

9th August, 2017

Me and my friend Rob had a wonderful day trekking and visiting some locations near Kathmandu. We left in the early hours of the morning to catch the sun rising at Nagarkot Hill, which was a beautiful sight to behold. We then hiked the surrounding valley and eventually Dev, our great guide, took us to the Namobuddha Monastery for a look around. Dev was helpful, knowledgeable, humourous, and made sure our experience went without any issues. Highly recommended, hoping to reconnect on my new trip :)

Rooms are nice and warm in most places, as the walk reaches a higher altitude above 4,000 m the accommodation can be limited sometimes in high season, where single rooms will be hard to get, all rooms are neat and clean with attached or common bathrooms with hot/cold showers. Large cozy dining rooms with soft music in a healthy environment and local warm hospitality rooming facing views of mountains and beautiful scenery of landscapes decorated with local traditional ways.

Ans: Since the last few decades of time where most of the rural villages do have proper communication whether by cell- phone (mobile) or STD / ISTD, our guides will be in touch with the head office through their cell phone.

Sometimes Cell-Phone and Sat Phone do work and don'ts as Nepal is a hilly and mountainous country with a deep gorge and valley, whereas cell phone works on high hills, and might not when in a deep gorge hidden by hills and mountains.

The chances of a working cell phone are most positive you can try using a local popular SiM card.

Great Experience Trekking Near Kathmandu!

9th August, 2017

Me and my friend Rob had a wonderful day trekking and visiting some locations near Kathmandu. We left in the early hours of the morning to catch the sun rising at Nagarkot Hill, which was a beautiful sight to behold. We then hiked the surrounding valley and eventually Dev, our great guide, took us to the Namobuddha Monastery for a look around. Dev was helpful, knowledgeable, humourous, and made sure our experience went without any issues. Highly recommended, hoping to reconnect on my new trip :)
