Trekking in Nepal

The word trekking literally means walking along the rural, isolated areas and often rugged terrain giving trekkers an up-close view of incredible natural scenery, soaring mountains, river basins, deep forests, wildlife etc. In Nepal trekking is a cultural activity in connection with the human, social and natural experience. The absolute joy of walking at the highest mountains and hills in Nepal is unimaginable. The country is considered the best trekking trails in the world offering many popular trekking routes from high elevation to simple ones within the Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys. The country\'s scenic Himalayan landscapes, fascinating cultures, pretty villages, revering temples and monasteries, subtropical lowlands, vast meadows, or forests, fast flowing rivers, deep canyons and alpine regions attract every trekker for a lifetime experience.

Types of treks
We offer two types of treks-Lodge/tea house and Full board camping in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and India. Both treks are led by our professional guides and other crew licensed by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of Nepal.

Tea House / Lodge Trek
In Nepal tea house accommodation or lodge trek is very popular in the most popular regions that include Annapurna, Everest and Langtang- Helambu where enterprising villagers provide good accommodation with attached bath with hot showers, western, continental and Nepalese meals, Private rooms (twin sharing) are also easily available. Our English speaking local trekking guides arrange overnight halts with dinner and breakfast in tea houses and lunch in local restaurants en-route and the main baggage of the traveler is carried by porters, yaks or donkeys.

Staying in locally owned lodges, travelers are able to interact with the local community. It gives them an opportunity to experience about the Nepalese culture and their rural lifestyle.

The tents we provide are branded & the sleeping pads mattresses are comfortable. A bathroom and a dining tent are provided with camping tables and stools. Western and Nepalese style of food is freshly prepared and served by our expert cook assisted by kitchen helpers.

Trekking Season
Trekking in Nepal is possible at any season round the year, depending on the area of interest to visit. The most popular seasons for trekking are autumn and spring.

Autumn: (Sep- November)

These are really the best months - offering excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views.
Winter: (Dec-Feb) This season is noted for occasional snowfall only at higher elevations and higher passes on the trekking route. We therefore recommend trekking at lower elevations, generally below 3000 meters especially around Kathmandu valley, Pokhara & Gorkha.
Spring: (Mar-May) During the spring days and nights are milder but still colder in the mountain regions. Different varieties of wild flowers decorate the natural beauties of hillside. Specially, varieties of rhododendrons make the hillside a haunting paradise and above 4000meter the mountain views are excellent. Trekkers get a great opportunity to see the traditional way of farming in hills in this season.
Summer: (Jun-Aug) This is the monsoon season. During these months Nepal experiences its most heavy rainfall. Trekking at this time is tough in hillsides due to flood and possible landslides. But, trekking is possible in the Upper Mustang and Dolpo areas. This season is blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. Insect repellent is a nice addition to your list to bring.

Acute Mountain Sickness

Also known as Altitude Sickness, this can become a serious problem. Results through failure of the body to adopt to high altitude. It can affect anyone regardless of age or fitness. It usually occurs when you pass 1800m above sea level. In general, you should not ascend more than 300m a day after you reach the height of 3000 to 4000m until you have acclimatized. Poor acclimatization results in headache, nausea, sleeplessness, and irregular breathing and swelling of fingers and glands. The only way to fight altitude sickness is to descend as far as possible. A descent of 1000m normally brings about rapid recovery. We have planned our routes carefully to ensure proper acclimatization. Cases of mountain sickness are rare on our trips. However, we stress that anyone who develops a headache at high altitude to consider it an early symptom of mountain sickness and inform the trek leader immediately. People may have headache for other reasons. But the possibility of mountain sickness cannot be ignored.

Trek grading

All our trekking trips are rated from easy to challenging as per the elevation and terrain sever it
Easy: Usually 3 to 4 hrs walk each day with little elevation below 2500m and occasional steep path
Moderate: Relatively low altitude treks below 3000m, 4 to 6 hrs walk each day.
Mildly Strenuous: Full-day treks (4 to 6 hours), mountainous terrain, Gradual ascents and descents on most treks. Altitudes no greater than about 3500m
Strenuous: Full-day treks, mountainous terrain, steep ups and downs, ascents at average altitudes of 4000m and above.
Challenging: Full-day hikes in mountainous terrain, steep ups and downs. Most treks take place at altitudes well above 5000m, sometimes as high as 5500m.
