Whether your interest is adventurous or cultural, Nepal will satisfy all its visitors with a wide range of exciting experiences. Anything from the ever popular bungy jump over a Himalayan canyon, to a trek with a yak caravan in search of the mythical yeti can be experienced in this majestic land.

Check your airline ticket in details. Many routes to Nepal require the change of aircraft or even a change of airline. Also, in our experience, the greatest risk of lost baggage is if you are traveling on a combination of two airlines. In this case, thoroughly cross-examine at check-in as to the pros and cons of tagging it all the way to Kathmandu vs. claiming it the airport at which you change carriers.
Departure from Kathmandu by Air:
Most airlines require that your flight out is RECONFIRMED 72 hrs. prior to departure. If requested Trek Nepal will do this for you. Back to the airport by taxi check-in the usual 2 hours before departure.
