We will assign one trek leader, one assistant leader for the group of four pax and porters (one porter between two members) to carry members luggage.

  • Travel Insurance

    Trekkers need to have traveling insurance which covers the comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and medical treatment costs). Insurance companies in Nepal do not provide traveling insurance for the foreigners and the trekkers need to get the traveling insurance from one of the international insurance companies. Sunrise Adventure Trek will have accident insurance for the trekking staff.

Unlike other trekking companies, Sunrise Adventure Trek allows trekkers to choose the food from the menu at the hotel/lodges in the trek. When the group is too big for the hotels/ lodges to provide individual dishes, a set menu will be arranged in most places. We use the lodges/hotels which serve hygienic, nutritious and good food for the trekkers for them to get enough energy for the hiking.

    Any trekker can get altitude sickness while trekking in the high altitude despite strong physical fitness. What is important is giving enough time for the proper acclimatization for the trekking.

Hiking slowly especially in the high altitude help prevent AMS ( Acute Mountain Sickness ).
