Accomodation

 

Rooms will be booked at Ti-se guest house in Kathmandu.  During the trek, Accommodation will be in teahouses either in a single room or shared rooms according to the availability. Generally, the rooms have to be shared during peak tourist seasons because they are mostly fully booked. And during the climbing section, we accommodated a very good tent.

 

Meal

Meals during the Island peak  climbing trip, we can enjoy with Nepalese local, Tibetan, Indian and the more common continental cuisines. All meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner will be available during the trekking and climbing sections.

 

Best Season

The best time to trek and peak climbing is Autumn (Sept. to Dec.) and Spring (March to May). The treks and climb during Winter and Summer (monsoon) aren’t impossible but just quite challenging. For the best experience, the early and late Spring and Autumn would be preferable due to less tourist traffic.

During the early Spring, the vegetations look fresh with early flowers starting to bloom in several kinds of plants. The villages are full of activity in preparation of family farms for planting the crops. The days are generally sunny due to which they offer good scenery.

The early Autumn is fresh green after a period of warm rainy days from summer monsoon. The month-long Nepali festivals of Dashain and Tihar can also coincide and the harvest time also starts in many of the villages.

The early Winter (late Autumn) is also a very good time if one prefers lower elevations in the Himalayas.
