Trekking in Nepal

Why people come to the Himalayas ?
Because Himalayas are the only ultimate destinations to adventure seekers, and Nepal is blessed with an incredible diversity of natural beauty and a consequent opulence of cultural varieties, trekking & mountaineering is the special rewarding holidays. Only big cities are not the representative of Nepal. So if you have the time and energy to trek, don't miss the opportunity to leave these big cities and see the spectacular beauty and the unique culture of this country. Fortunately such a tiny nation like Nepal, it is a home for more than 77 different ethnic groups and each of them holds their own unique cultures. There are still many areas untouched by motor able roads, and trekking is the only way to truly visit the kingdom. The abodes of snows, the spectacular landscapes and the tribal of country welcomes you by every steps. Therefore trekking will take you through a country that has captured the imagination of mountaineers and explorers for more than 100 years. You will meet people in remote whose lifestyle has not changed for generations. Trekking does not mean mountain climbing and its always refers to walking on trail, and this great diversities gives you a goal to enjoy of your Himalayan holiday. Likewise naturally other countries hold their own culture and diversity. So please choose one of the given trekking itineraries, which suits to you. We have designed the itineraries for any level of ages as degree.

Tent life
Sleeping arrangements consist of double-walled tents with strong waterproof under sheets. We provide two mattresses, hard and foam to soften bumpy ground and insulate you. Also we can provide sleeping bags, but it is better to bring one with you that, and which fits well and more clean. A pair of cotton liners is a good investment, as they get dirty and can be washed, rather than the sleeping bag itself, which cannot, at least on. Duffel bag should be big enough to be fit in every thing e.g. Sleeping bag and extra clothing's. Daypacks should be big enough strong & lightweight to fits in Camera, water bottle, Gore-Tex, flashlight, toiletries etc. See our note under 'Equipment checklist'. Small bags are very useful for to pack into separately the your things and deployed in the tent and day time. This is a fine place to put flashlights, glasses, a watch and other small items that may be needed and which may get lost at night.

A day on trek:
Trekking involves two periods of walking each day. However, some day you can walk only in the morning and settle down during the heat of the afternoon to wash, read or explore the local villages and ecology, this approach slows the pace of travel and the scope of what can be done in a limited time, but it also makes the trek a great deal and more agreeable. We have, however, based the trekking itineraries on the notion of a full day of activity. Most rise early, at dawn. The reason for doing this is that the country looks its best when the light is slanting low. The modest difficulties of getting organized in the semi-light, and breakfasting before the sun hits the campsite. The kitchen staff is will rise much earlier, and then you will be woken with a hot cup of black tea and bowl of warm water for washing at some stage before breakfast, however you must pack your belongings before come to breakfast table, because porters will be waiting for your bags as you emerge. “You will get you bags only in evening” porters will leave camp before you finish your breakfast, and you may pass (and re-pass) them several times during the day. It is considered poor etiquette to ask to open your bags between campsites, as this involves considerable inconvenience. You will be set out after your breakfast, proceed by the sirdar or one of his assistant Sherpa (a route men) the kitchen staffs also will be loaded off too. Their job is to find a temporary site for your lunch stop and cook food. You will typically walk for 3-4 hours in the morning, stopping at between 11am - Noon for lunch. You will be greeted by a cup of lemon or orange cordials flavored water. A simple lunch follows about half an hour later. It is often possible to wash yourself in a stream at lunchtime, after lunch the walk begins once more. The afternoon trek is usually shorter than morning and most would expect to be in camp by 4 O'clock, but slow walkers and hard trails may delay this. Tea and biscuits will await you, however, dinner is generally served around 6.30-7pm.

How fit I should be for trekking?
Almost all of the treks in Nepal have some degree of 'climbing'. Demands physical and however, with some pre-trek preparation, participants should have no problems coping with the trek of their choice. Some trekkers experience problems with their knees, (which is know as trekkers knee) after a period of downhill trekking. If you have a history of knee problems be sure to bring a knee guard to support or strap with you just in case. Remember too that speed is not a part of trekking - taking your time and enjoying the views is important. It is stamina and confidence, which is important, factors to the enjoyment of your trek. We recommended that you base your trekking choice on the following criteria's.

Basic sightseeing and trekking:
Mainly low altitude walking with some short ascents and descents. No specific pre-trek preparation is required for these trips but you should aim to have a reasonable level of general fitness. Practice carrying your day pack and break in those you newly brought trekking boots.

Introductory Trekking:
You will be walking or involved in activity up to 6-7 hours per day at altitudes not exceeding 2500 meters and with some steep ascents and descents. For two or three months prior to your trek you should take every opportunity to do some bush walking, walking up and down stairs (instead of using the lift), cycling, swimming and just plain walking.

Moderate Trekking:
You will be walking 4-6 hours per day at altitudes not exceeding 4,500 meters with steep ascents and descents. Preparation will be much the same as for the introductory trek but should include more steep ascents and descents if possible. Using the stairs instead of the lift is a good way to prepare for these treks as is cycling and swimming.

Challenging trekking:
These treks will involve some high altitude activity and the occasional pass crossing and altitudes not exceeding above 5500 meters. Be aware of the physical and mental needs of this type of trek. You will need to be fit and prepared as for the moderate trek apply here too. Level of fitness is unrelated to altitude sickness and you cannot be sure that you will not suffer some mild symptoms. Slow and steady is the key to enjoyment.

Mountaineering and Trekking Peaks:
For those in search of a challenging, you must have had extensive outdoor experience and in selecting this type of expedition, know that you are fit and have maintained the fitness over a period of time. It is necessary to have basic technique experience and gaining experience with rope work (rock climbing gym) could be an advantage. These could involve altitudes up to height Mt. Everest. We can provide pre-trek training for the mountaineering component. Not for the beginner!!
