This trip does not go to high altitude, so acclimatising will be relatively easy.
Please ensure you speak to your leader if you have issue swimming prior to the rafting activity

I found intrepid to be well organised. The experience Nepal trip packed in a lot of activities while still not making the trip seem rushed. Our guide Satya gas fantastic, he was knowledgeable about every subject from wildlife and plants to architecture and culture. I will definitely be booking with Intrepid again.
