Vital information

Visa:

The most convenient (and less expensive) is to have a visa on arrival at Kathmandu airport. To do this, please bring a photo Passport size and Cash small bills.

  • 25 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 15-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 40 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a 30-day visa (multiple entries)
  • 100 US dollars (or euro equivalent) for a visa from 31 to 90 days (multiple entries).

The visa is free for children under 10 years. For stays of less than 3 days, free visas no longer exist (take a visa "15 days").When you take your visa on arrival, check that the "sticker" is properly affixed: without it, your visa is not valid

Travel Insurance:

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.

You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.

Best of Nepal Tour- A wonderful trip of our life

We recently completed a ten day tour in and around Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Dhulikhel, Chitwan National Park, Lumbini and Pokhara. There is no question that this was one of the best and most interesting holidays we've ever taken. As an experience, the breadth and diversity was astonishing. We began in Kathmandu and stayed in Dwarikas (truly a great experience in itself - the building is like no other, dinner is fantastic and the outdoor barbeques by the pool are second to none). It took only really a couple of days to visit the various squares and temples and gain an appreciation of the fabulous architecture and wood carving, but then we were really there to see Everest. On the third day we stayed at Club Himalaya in Nagarkot, which is a fairly decent hotel, but in a wonderful situation. The view that night afforded us the first undisturbed view of Everest (albeit a distant view). But the following morning was utterly amazing. From our hotel room and then from the viewing platform we saw the sun rise over the Himalayas. Without going into detail it is simply the best thing I've ever seen....
From then on, anything we did was a bonus (No1 job was done), but I was very surprised that I was to enjoy Tiger Tops in Chitwan enormously. It seemed a little expensive, but there were so many activities throughout the day, it really is good value: from elephant trekking, lectures, hiking, safari, river rides and we were allowed to spend some time with their baby elephant which was really very special. We next went to Lumbini, the birth place of Buddha. We left early for Tiger Mountain at Pokhara the next day and again really enjoyed it. It has incredibly pretty countryside and many outdoor activities including rafting and probably the most interesting golf course in the world (buy plenty of balls). We wanted to spend more time here, but had to get back to Kathmandu for our Everest flight (fully recommend this).
Pasang personally took care of us from start to finish and ensured at every point we were looked after, happy and had everything we needed. He constructed a very well balanced tour and was able to quickly make changes when we changed our minds about things. We were a little nervous to start with as we'd decided to go for all the luxury options that our needs would be met, but we were most impressed by Pasang's trustworthiness and attention to detail. We thought it was well worth aiming for the higher end hotels as they aren't ridiculously expensive by international standards, but well worth it for their added benefits of good food, service, views and activities. In short, we had an unforgettable experience and Pasang and his team did a great job, made everything happen and exceeded our expectations on every count.
