If you require extra Yak to carry your luggage, you have to inform us at least 2 days in advance. The price depends on the flow of tourists. The more demand, the higher cost.

3. 1 Yak handler will be provided for every 3 yaks.

4. Depending on weather condition and group size, we may provide fixed wing aircraft in between Nepalgunj and Simikot but in between Simikot and Hilsa there is no alternative other than Helicopter.

5. We must land at Simikot for going through the immigration formalities of Nepal government while going and coming back, both times.

6. During the Parikrama (circumambulation) we prefer to provide the accommodation in Guesthouse. But the number of Guesthouses is limited. If the guesthouses are fully occupied, we provide camping accommodation. There is alternative way other than sleeping in the Tent.

7. On your request, we can arrange Horse for riding on Prikrama (circumambulation), but you should book confirm this at least 2 days in advance. The price of Horse depends on the time and the flow of tourists in the region. The higher demand, the bigger price. You cant ride the Horse for the entire journey because the trail on second day is quite rough and Horse needs break as well.

9. The weather condition in the mountain (Simikot and Hilsa area) plays the vital role on this journey. So, due to the weather fact the trip might be delayed to depart by one or two days in the beginning.

Due to weather condition sometimes you may not be able to make your flight at your scheduled time. So we recommend you to keep one day additional while returning and please make sure your ticket is flexible to change your date.
