WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
You will fly into Kathmandu before making your way to the expedition meeting point in Pokhara. We will provide you with easy-to-follow instructions of where to meet the field staff and the rest of your expedition group prior to your departure.
We recommend that you arrive into Nepal prior to your project start date and allow yourself enought time to make your way to Pokhara which is a 6-8 hour journey from Kathmandu.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
Throughout your project you will camp at a series of white sand beaches next to the water’s edge along the river’s course. The Nepalese team will provide you with tents, mattresses and sleeping bags – needless to say, camping will be a thoroughly enjoyable experience as you spend your evenings getting to know your fellow travellers and local guides.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
You will be provided with all meals for the duration of your project, and lots of refreshments in-between to keep your energy levels up! (Day One: lunch and dinner; Day Two: breakfast, lunch and dinner; Day Three: breakfast and lunch).
Meals will be provided in a buffet style incorporating both Western and Nepali dishes. You will receive a hearty full cooked breakfast with eggs, toast, and sometimes pancakes or porridge. Lunch is normally a combination of bread, cheese, fish and salads, and dinner tends to be pasta, potatoes, curries, vegetables or local Nepalese daal bhat. Snacks will also be available when you arrive at camp each day and may include popcorn, papadums, prawn crackers and soup. You will be surprised by the high quality of the food, cooked using simple facilities, and will enjoy it immensely as you look out onto beautiful surroundings.
