    Can I buy any equipment in Kathmandu before the start of the trip?

    Yes. There are dozens of trekking shops in the Thamel area of Kathmandu. Depending on how good your bartering skills are, you can usually pick up items for about one third of the price that you'll pay in the UK...and its more fun to bargain! However, please note we cannot guarantee the quaility of anything you may purchase so buyer beware. David Richardson - Sales

    What weather should I expect in Tibet?

    As nearly all of Tibet lies above 3,500m it has a harsh climate. At the times of year when we visit Tibet (March to October) the weather is generally dry and clear, with brilliant blue skies and daytime temperatures of 10ºC to 25ºC in Lhasa. The days should be pleasantly warm (provided there is sunshine) for most of the trip, although on the trips in October will be much cooler. On the road journeys the tops of the high passes can be cold and windy and it is advisable to keep a warm jacket with you on the bus. As soon as the sun goes down the temperature falls rapidly. The nights will be cooler and will be very cold in Rongbuk in September and October with temperatures well below freezing. Some of the hotels we use can be cold at nights in September and October. There can be wind and dust storms in the afternoons especially at Rongbuk. From June to September it is monsoon season in Nepal and it will be hot and humid in Nepal and you may well get rain.

    Considering the political situation, should I travel to Tibet?

    The Dalai Lama has stated that he believes westerners should visit Tibet so that Tibet and the Tibetans do not become isolated, and our belief is that the Tibetans themselves, in general, regard the presence of westerners in Tibet as a positive factor. Our agent in Tibet is Tibetan and as far as possible, we only use Tibetan guides and drivers or Chinese guides sympathetic to Tibetan culture. Wherever possible we use facilities that are Tibetan owned and run. Sometimes this is not possible and travelling in Tibet you must understand this. Brendan Phelan - Customer Operations
