It is a dream come true trekking in the Himalayan regions of Nepal. One of the world’s famous trekking trails of Everest and Annapurna must be a to-do list of every adventure enthusiasts. The remote mountain villages, meeting local people and experiencing the Tibetan-Buddhist culture will indeed leave you astounded. During the trekking in Nepal, the jaw-dropping natural beauty will leave you amazed; witnessing the raw Himalayan beauty, hearing the roar of raging mountain rivers, and with a new day bringing new spectacular views around you. Though it might be physically tiring, you will not want to stop as your mind will tune to the awesome sights of the surrounding peaks towering overhead.
The towering Himalayas are the obvious attracting during your trekking tour to Nepal; but you will be equally amazed by the fantastic views of terrace fields, stands of pine and rhododendron forests, birch, and juniper to the treeless alpine zone at the foot of the Himalayas. While trekking through this serene place you will pass through sparsely populated villages in a regular interval. You will be amazed by the way local people welcome you with the wide smile on their faces. These are the rural parts of Nepal, people make their living through agriculture and their livestock. They have nothing to offer rather than their humble hospitality, respect, and a very warm smile.
The best time for trekking to Nepal is from October to May. However, the first two months of autumn – October and November is ideally the best period to go trekking in Nepal. These autumn months follow after the monsoon. Monsoons wipe off the pollution in the air giving way to a spectacular view of Himalayan peaks and landscapes. Then the months of March and April are the second best time to do the treks. These are the spring season in Nepal and Himalayas view will supplement by superb wildflowers.
During your trek, you will be accompanied by local Sirdar (Sherpa guide). These Sherpa guides are born and brought up in the Himalayan regions of Nepal. Although they have only a very basic schooling experience and a confident broken English; they will charm you with their gifted sense of humour. You will also have a porter/porter’s (the number of porters will depend upon your group size). Ideally, there will be 1 porter for 2 person trekking. They will carry all the stuff that you will be requiring during your treks (Please note, we request you to carry your essential documents such as passports, medicines, camera, mobile in your rucksack) as the porters will be ahead of you and you will catch them only at the end of the day.
Trekking in Nepal is one of the famous adventure activity; hence, we recommend travellers to have travel insurance from their home country that covers medical and emergency repatriation, including Helicopter evacuation and in the eventuality of serious illness, accident or clients stranded in remote areas due to unexpected bad weather.
Although trekking is not very hard, we suggest you consult your doctor before you embark on it. You should be aware of AMS (Altitude Mountain Sickness). If you rapidly gain height you may have AMS problem. However, our itinerary made in such a way that you have a proper acclimatization before you head toward the higher altitude. In anyways, if the symptoms such as shortness of breath, headache appears; you will have to consult immediately with our guide who will bring you down to lower altitudes to neutralize the threat.
