Trek in Nepal
Trek in Nepal is interacting to the local people, culture, religion, and lifestyle as well as walking through forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oak, and hemlock, visiting one or two villages each day.
Nepal is the ultimate for the trekking enthusiast – offering a myriad of possibilities from the short and easy to the demanding challenges of the snowy peaks. Easy, moderate or rigorous – there is something for every palate. Nepal has aptly been called “ A Trekker's Paradise” as her terrain – mountains, hills and the Tarai – offers some of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world.
The immense contrasts in altitudes and climates found here support an equally spectacular mix of lifestyles, vegetation and wildlife. Trekking in Nepal is as much a cultural experience as a Himalayan adventure. In the shadows and foothills of the icy pinnacles of the Himalaya, one passes picturesque charming villages inhabited, by diverse ethnic groups. Treks vary from expeditions, high altitude treks to simple easy paced walks.
Put simply, a trek is an extended walking holiday, suitable for anyone with a spirit of adventure. Most days begin with a stunning Himalayan sunrise, when the crew serves you a piping hot cup of tea and provides you with a warm bowl of washing water. After a heartily cooked breakfast , you generally walk for two to four hours. You need only to set a leisurely pace, allowing plenty of time to absorb the beauty of the surrounding countryside, its peoples and the magnificent mountain backdrop. You are encouraged to take your time, stop for photographs and explore local villages. There is never any pressure to keep up. Remember, your treks is fully portered, so you only need to carry a day pack with a water bottle, camera, pullover and anything you think you may need during the day. On our higher altitude treks, rest and exploration days are built in to ensure proper acclimatization.
Additional guides, or Sherpa, accompany you on your trek. They pitch and break camp for you, give directions as they walk with you during the day, and generally ensure you have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. You travel with the security of having professional back-up on hand. Yaks, ponies or porters from the local region shoulder the main load, so you do not have to do the hard work. You appreciate their help when all you have to carry is your day pack with water, camera and any essentials you might need during the day.Your cooks, whether in lodges or on camping treks, are amazing with strict attention to hygienic foods. All food is prepared on kerosene.

Easy/Easy plusThese are the easiest of our Himalayan treks, but still involve walking up and down hills, though on well-defines trails and with trekking days that rarely exceed 5 to 6 hours, or more than 10 kilometers per day. Altitudes will not exceed more than 3,000 meters. All easy programmes involve a maximum of one week’s camping.
Moderate/Moderate plusTrekking may involve walking up to 7 hours, occasionally more on moderate plus’, traveling between 8 to 9 kilometers, over hilly terrain, on well-defined trails. Altitude will exceed 3,000m and sometimes reach over 5,000m. These trips involve camping/lodge stays of up to two weeks.
Physical preparation is essential as you will
be walking up to 8 hours per day, sometimes on
small tracks. Altitudes will often exceed 4,000
meters, with some days spent trekking above 5,000
meters. These trips involve camping for up to
three weeks and sometimes longer.
These are challenging treks which include basic
mountaineering above the snow line, using ice
axe, crampons and ropes, under supervision and
instruction from the trek leader. These trips
require a high level of psychological and physical
stamina. Prior trekking experience is certainly
an advantage, though not essential.
