    TRAVEL INSURANCE

    Travel insurance is an important safeguard for any visitor trekking in the mountains of Nepal. While Alpine Ramble Treks does not sell travel insurance packages, we would be happy to recommend some of our favorite providers. When you purchase a travel insurance policy, be sure that it covers the following contingencies: emergency helicopter evacuation, medical treatment and evacuation, repatriation, trekking, and climbing. You may need to purchase a higher tier of travel insurance in order to have these activities covered at a high altitude. For climbing, we recommend securing insurance to cover your trekking/climbing activities up to 6,000 -7000 meters. Fortunately, travel insurance policies are easy to purchase online, and you can compare coverage between packages quickly and easily. Trekking under the protection of travel insurance will guarantee your peace of mind and protect you in the unlikely event that you need to file a claim.

    Fitness and Experiences

    For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming, and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.

    Food

    Trekking at altitude requires a lot of energy. We recommend you bring your own healthy snack foods to snack on along the trek.
    Accommodation
    In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels, and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp, your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis.

    Weather Forecast

    During the climb, your guide will have access to current weather conditions.
