Tipping

Tipping is your choice, however we suggest ~5% of the trip cost, taken in rupees and near the end of the trek, providing everything has gone well, pool the money yourselves, then divide equally or roughly equally between the staff and hand over on the last morning together. The staff are paid above average wages, however these don't go far in the capital, and so tips money is the bonus that allows them to send their kids to (relatively cheap) private schools or travel home for the holidays.

Inspiration

One day I might write a detailed itinerary, until then, here are a few memorable photos.
