I'm down for this one. Should be a good trip.
ive read on jet air the lugauge allowance is 30 kgs, any one know anything different ?
hows everyones traing going
Hi, there is actually a baggage allowance calculator on the Jet website, and for Economy it says London to Delhi is 23Kg, HOWEVER Delhi to Kathmandu is only 20Kg. Bottom of this page: http://www.jetairways.com/EN/GB/Baggage/FreeBaggageAllowances.aspx
If I've understood it correctly. And over 23Kg is £40 extra charge (but it looks like we have to get it down to 20Kg for the flight to/from Kathmandu anyway (where a $5US per Kg over 20Kg charge applies).
So I'll be wearing all my clothes on the flights.
Hi its Valerie here, your leader. There are 8 on the trip at the moment. Re luggage - I just called Jet and the allowance is 30kg. You check your luggage in at Heathrow all the way so you get the 30kg. If you want to double check call them and quote your flight and ask. I have 30kg to take out anyhow and you do not pick luggage up in Delhi - it goes straight through.
Any queries re equipment post here or mail me
I am in the UK now till 13 Oct and after that will be in Ktm
Valerie knows best, but my personal experience has been that there can be slow queues at Kathmandu to get the visa locally, and after a long flight it's nice to turn up with that sorted already, but on the other hand it's likely to be cheaper at Kathmandu.
I always get my visa on arrival. Often there are long queues but sometimes you hit lucky. Get off the plane quick and head straight for the Q picking up a form on the way and fill it in whilst in the Q - you need 1 photo. We have to wait for all clients before we go to the hotel and some will get visas on arrival anyhow so you either wait inside or out.
Re boots - you really need double boots for the cold so maybe best to hire plastics in Ktm. If there is lots of snow and its cold you will need the double boots. Toe warmers good idea as well. I am off to Ktm 13 Oct so will see you all at the airport.
omg , anyone else struggling to get all their kit in the kit bag, bit small !!!!!! helmet boots axe etc ,
any how see you all soon
Yep, not only space, but the 10Kg limit on the kit bag whilst on trek is a struggle too, just the basics account for most of the weight. Going to be doing a trial pack this weekend - I'm weighing every item as I go to get an accurate total weight - my back bedroom is an explosion of trekking kit and clothes.
Hi, I checked with Exodus, and whilst on trek (limit for the flight back from Jomsom) the TOTAL weight limit is 15Kg, that's 10Kg for the kit bag and 5Kg for the rucksack. I didn't believe it at first which is why I checked with Exodus (Gosia Knas, quote below). This excludes the climbing stuff of course.
"10kg checked in luggage and 5kg hand luggage are for internal flight, all together is 15kg and this is the luggage allowance for your trek as well."
