The layout of the dossiers is now updated and we think that information will be easier to find with images, coloured headings and a new format.
To take a look at our new Naar to Upper Mustang Trek Dossier.
What have we removed?
We have removed some information from the trip dossiers which is not trip specific. This information has been added to the country specific pre trip information documents which you receive once you have booked with us.
What have we added?
1. Trail descriptions
We want you to choose the most appropriate trek for your ability and interest and a lot of this will be based on the trail. The more information you have about the kind of trail you will be trekking, the more easily you can decide whether the trek is suitable for you.
For example, trekking to K2 Base Camp is Glacial Moraine - generally rocky under foot but with some icy patches. Significant up and down. Whereas trekking to Everest Base camp has more Gently undulating clear trails through forests villages or gorges.
We have created a classification system for the trails made up of 8 trail description categories and a visual way of representing it. To find out what the classification below really means, read our blog post “Picking the right trail for you” or look at one of our new trip dossiers.

2. Distance, ascent and descent information
Last August we published the blog “what does your next adventure look like?” in which we shared our quest for more data. Some of that data is in and we have begun to add it to our dossiers. As we collate more of this data we will be able to add it to all our dossiers. Below is an example of the new easy to read format in which we are presenting the data.
The maps Roland created last summer for our treks and linked to the website, are now also linked to in the trip dossiers.
4. Altitude Profile
We are including an altitude profile in all our new trek dossiers. These will give you an idea of our gradual acclimatisation profile as well as how many passes you will encounter along the way.
