Kathmandu has a wealth of accommodation options.  On our standard expedition departure we stay at a good, western standard, mid-range hotel but if you feel you would like to upgrade to luxury style, we can assist with booking alternative hotels.

Pre-acclimatisation Trips

Just a few hours drive from Kathmandu is the beautiful Himalayan region of Langtang National Park.  We offer two week long pre-acclimatisation trips to either the Langtang or Gosain Kunda lakes area.  An ideal opportunity to pre-acclimatise prior to your Himalayan expedition. Contact our office for more detail.

Visit Chitwan National Park

Chitwan National Park is one of the major draw cards in Nepal outside of the Himalayas themselves. This is a World Heritage listed wildlife reserve that protects over 932 square kilometres of wilderness that is home to a raft of different wildlife.  While there you will have the opportunity to see one horned rhinoceroses, monkeys and deer, and if you are really lucky you might even see a Royal Bengal Tiger.  Since you are in Nepal, why not stay a little longer and experience this gem. For more information check out our Chitwan  page.

Perched 1,000 feet above the Pokhara Valley with a spectacular Himalayan backdrop, Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge provides a perfect haven, the essence of tranquillity. This side trip is ideal for guests pre- and post-expedition, or for those wishing to take day walks exploring local communities, bird-watching, gentle exercise, or just to relax in a typical Nepalese rural setting. For more information check out our Pokhara page.

Full Activity Programme for Non-Climbing Family or Friends

Your family or friends may wish to join you on your Expedition but may not like the idea of actually climbing a mountain. We can arrange for them to accompany you on the trek to Base Camp and even spend some time with you there.  Once you start climbing they will head back down valley with a guide.  After their trek we can easily arrange a number of activities for them. Talk to your liaison if this is a possibility and we will discuss the options with you.

Privately Guided Expedition

We are also able to offer Privately Guided Expeditions where you have the services of a top AC western guide as well as your own Sherpa support team to work exclusively with you on the expedition to ensure your needs are best met. AC have been fortunate to work with many privately guided groups over the years with exceptional results.

Gokyo & Everest Base Camp Extensions

  • Gokyo Extension

 Trek over the challenging Cho La Pass to visit the Gokyo Lakes region. This is a highly recommended extension for fit and experienced trekkers.

An early start sees the group going over the 5,380m pass by late mid-morning (fantastic views back to Ama Dablam and of Cholatse) and then descending off the steeper side of the pass into boulder fields and trails with a more remote feeling to them. By the end of a superb day’s Himalayan trekking we reach the small village of Dragnag. The next day we cross the Ngozumpa Glacier and after a couple of hours reach Gokyo for a well-earned rest. There are options to climb Gokyo Ri (5,357m) later on or trek further up valley to view some of the stunning Gokyo lakes (of which there are five).

We then begin the trek out from the Gokyo region with a beautiful day of trekking to Machermo, before re-joining the main trail at Namche Bazaar. The trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla is a long day before the early morning flight back out to Kathmandu on the last day. Departure flights from Kathmandu need to be scheduled for the following day. Costs for the Gokyo Extension are US$450 per person. For more information contact our office or click on the Trip Notes above.

  • Everest Base Camp Extension


A visit to the Khumbu valley is not complete without visiting Everest Base Camp itself.  This three-day add-on also includes climbing Kala Patar for un-paralelled views of Everest at sunrise or sunset.  Costs for the Everest Base Camp Add On are US$400 per person. Contact our office for more information.

On Mountain Extras

  • Additional Sherpa Support


If you feel you want additional Sherpa support to carry equipment for you then please contact the office to discuss pricing for this option.  We can arrange for a personal Sherpa to carry for you throughout the expedition or for occasional carries where necessary. We are not in a position to arrange the employment of additional Sherpas once on the mountain, so if you think you may be interested please contact our office well in advance of the trip start date.

  • Personal Communications & Personal Tent on Mountain


You may also like to talk to us about other options such as personal communication systems (own BGAN satellite phone and laptop at Base Camp), or the provision of a personal tent on the mountain.

  • Film your Expedition


Have a camera man join your expedition and document the entire thing! Choose from a variety of options for different budgets. You could have a full colour book and short film, or a full documentary for television. Your trip is the trip of a lifetime; why not keep it to show your friends and family

For more information on additional services, please contact our office.
