Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is a cover for the risks you might face in your trip, while trekking in Nepal. Typically, it covers death, personal accident, medical expenses, repatriation, loss/ delay of checked baggage, passport loss and third party liability as per the agency chosen by you. You do not want anything to ruin your hard earned holiday or your crucial business meeting. But there is a possibility of some unexpected occurrence no matter how perfect the planning is. Unfortunate events such as baggage loss, passport loss, a medical emergency or an accident can affect you. Having Travel Insurance protects you from all such perils. It ensures that in the unknown foreign land you are not left stranded in any kind of an emergency. We strongly recommend travel insurance for everyone who is intended to hike in Nepal.

Climate and Weather
Nepal's climate varies with its topography as it is divided into 3 regions on the basis of physical division i.e. Terai, Hilly and Mountain (Himalayan) region. There are four climatic seasons in Nepal: 

December-February (winter) 
March-May (spring), 
September-November (autumn) and
June-August (summer),
The monsoon is approximately from the end of June to the middle of September. About 80 per cent of the rain falls during that period, so the remainder of the year is dry. In winter, average maximum and minimum temperatures in the Terai range from a brisk 7ºC (45ºF) to a mild 23ºC (74ºF). Summer and late spring temperatures range from 28ºC (83ºF) in the hill regions to more than 40ºC (104ºF) in the Terai. The Terai region, which lies in the tropical southern part of the country, for instance, has a hot, humid climate.  The central Hilly region experience a minimum temperature often falls below freezing point and a chilly 12ºC (54ºF) maximum. The northern mountain region, around an altitude above 3,353 meters has an alpine climate with a considerably lower temperature and thin air in winter as can be expected. Much colder temperatures prevail at higher elevations. The Kathmandu Valley, at an altitude of 1310m (4297ft), has a mild climate, ranging from 19-27ºC (67-81ºF) in summer, and 2-20ºC (36-68ºF) in winter.

Best Season
We specially prefer spring (March to mid May) and autumn (mid Sept to Dec) seasons for the Everest Base Camp Trekking as they are known as the best season in Nepal. The weather is sunny and warm, with outstanding natural views but the nights are cold and can fall to freezing in higher altitude. Trekking in winter (Dec, Jan, and Feb) season is also good for this Everest Base Camp trek but the subject is only cold and might be disturbance because cold may obstruct the trekking route as of snowfall. The trekking routes become busy route during spring and autumn as they are called best season. But during monsoon and winter the routes are not busy and you could more enjoy the natural beauty of Nepal.

Porter Care
Porter plays an important role whilst trekking in Hilly and Himalayan Region. So we provide vigorous porter from our best professional trekking team for the smooth run of your trek. We behave with them like our team. The Sherpa people of Nepal have established a reputation as mountaineering porters, and are considered indispensable for the highest Himalayan expeditions. Every day, Sherpa porters in the middle hills carry excruciating loads on their spines, for trekkers and mountaineers. Hundreds of thousands more heave the basket as part of their daily household chores, fetching water, firewood and fodder. Carrying goods on the back with the help of a tumpline (namlo) is their daily routine. While the loads carried by the Sherpa porter are the heaviest anywhere in the world, the feat is doubly impressive when one considers his diminutive size and body weight. Himalayan back-loading is also distinctive because it is a continuous, unremitting activity, unlike, for example, the stevedore´s momentary toil. So it's very unfortunate that they have endured a history of exploitation and abuse at the hands of the industry. In an effort to combat this, we are firmly committed to porter rights. We ensure all our porters are well treated, well paid and we provide the level of shelter, clothing and footwear that these harsh environments demand. We provide same medical attention to all the Sherpa porters like team members if any injury occurs. And for the porter's sake we urge all trekkers to keep their luggage bag weight under 15kgs/33 pounds in restricted trekking area and 24kgs/ pounds in other trekking area. We support and appreciate the work of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG), Working for the safety of the mountain porter. 
We provide all the necessary facilities to the porter with the following:
A good working wage 
All food for porters while on trek
Accommodation while on trek
Work related clothing and equipment 
Income protection insurance
We also provide emergency helicopter evacuation if required

Environmental Concerns
The main concern of Himalayan Club is to conduct better than the best trip for you adopting various steps to preserve the environment of that place where we visit. We employ a Responsible Tourism policy on the natural environment and the traditional communities that live there. We enforce a number of do's and don'ts, and our experienced staffs can advise you on how to minimize your impact and with some thought and care we can ensure that everyone benefits from the experience.

On this trip: Nepal owns beauty of nature as it is naturally rich in vegetation and wildlife. Whilst trekking with Himalayan Club's trekking leaders and staff you may encounter different conservation area and national parks inhabitant by birds and wild animals. We will use the policy of staying in locally owned accommodation, having local group members and using transport owned and operated by local people wherever possible is continued in Nepal. You will be guided by your trekking guide about the environment concerns while trekking.

Our small help is helping to improve the working conditions of the people or rural areas in big.
