Trekking in Nepal is a different kind of outdoor feat than other forms of adventure like mountain climb; It is completely a new experience for lifetime and a wonderful way to relax from the stresses of everyday life. Trekking is the multi-days joyful walking trip enjoying the scenery of rural regions, rugged hils and valleys, from one place to the next place. Trekking is not the climbing and mountaineering that need climbing equipment.
Season: From mid September to May. Main seasons are Mid Sept to November and March to May.
We offer two styles of Trekking depending on your accessibility, camping trek and tea house trek.
Camping trek: Traveling in the mountain regions at your own pace and uses tented accommodations at the end of the day. You will have cooks to prepare meals, guide and porters to carry load but we expect you to carry small personal bag packs.
On all of our camping treks, we observe the need to tread as lightly as possible. All waste paper is burnt. All other non-biodegradable garbage will be brought back. All water is purified; vegetables are treated with a water iodine base.
Meal: During our camping treks, our cook staff prepare simple but hygienic, nutritious and delicious meal. Each breakfast, lunch and dinner contains at least four varieties with the choice of hot drinks.
Drinking water: In camping trek our cook staff will provide properly boiled and purified water for drinking. In Kathmandu, we suggest you to stay with mineral water or purify with water purifying tablets.
PERSONAL HYGIENE: A limited amount of warm water will be served each morning for washing (on camping treks). Teahouses usually have showers in lodges. We suggest not polluting streams or river waters.
EQUIPMENT: We provide sleeping tent, warm sleeping bags and mattresses for camping trek and other necessary equipment. For a Teahouse trek, the traveler must have their own comfortable equipment such as warm and comfortable walking boots, warm down jackets, sleeping bags, rain jackets and few pairs of nice socks, comfortable clothing, sunglass, gloves and body lotions etc. We send you a complete list of equipment and other accessories, which you need to bring. Most of the equipment can be rented or bought in Kathmandu but we prefer you to bring from home as local made are not perfect
HEALTH PRECAUTIONS: Check with your doctor and make sure that you have sound health. The most common health problem is diarrhea. We minimize the risks by consuming meals in camp (except on the teahouse treks). Our staff will attempt to ensure basic safety measures as medical services are severely limited or non-existent in these remote areas. However, a well-equipped first-aid kit will be carried and the trip leaders or guides are trained in first aid.
