Accommodation Both in the cities and outlying areas, we have long- standing relationships with the owners and managements of Nepal's network of hotels and inns, and can arrange excellent accommodation at advantageous tariffs, from simple accommodation in remote villages to the five star hotels of Kathmandu and Pokhara. Environmental Concerns Camping is the preferred way to enjoy one of the most beautiful and fragile spots on earth, because it allows you to be close to nature. Your sensitivity for your surrounding will influence others and your team will help with these simple guidelines. • Do not leave anything except your footprints on the trail, and do not take away anything except photos. • Use bio-degradable or burnable disposables. • Do not leave waste burning on a site. Bag and remove plastic and tins for disposal later. • Ensure that toilets are dug at least 50 meters from the camp, and cover with earth on departure.
