SAFETY

Please read the Walk for Nepal Kit List

Although the route has no technical ground and little objective danger, please be aware that slips and accidents still happen and in some locations can have serious consequences. We’ll hope for Himalayan sun and blue skies, but even in May, the weather can change rapidly in the mountains- be prepared and take note of any instructions from the walk leaders.

  • On the morning of the event the walk leader will give a full safety briefing to all walkers.
  • There will be varying levels of ability and fitness, so the walk will be guided by qualified ML (mountain leaders) who will supervise groups of around 6 – 8 walkers at a similar level to make sure nobody is left behind or gets lost.
  • You will be given copies of emergency phone numbers and procedures in the small chance of separation, but please remember that mobile phone signal is often very poor. Please follow any instructions and keep your leader within sight.
