Weather

Weather in the mountains is difficult to predict.  Winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) is also good for trekking, only issue is cold. The weather is sunny and warm offering outstanding views but the nights are cold and can fall to freezing in higher elevations. Trekking in summer/monsoon (June, July) will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. The trekking routes are crowded during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed.

Experience Required

Anyone who is fit and healthy and have a habit of walking for couple of hours daily can choose for trekking But for mountain climbing one has to have an experience of climbing before

Packing  List

It is recommended that you carry a light 35-50L rucksack with your personal belongings that you may need handy such as camera, hat, glasses, gloves, sun creams, first-aid kit, toothpaste/brush, soap/ towel, and other personal items.

To keep yourself hydrated at high altitude, always remember to carry water container with at least 1 litre of water in your backpack.  Around base camp you will need your down jacket.

Trekking Guides

All our trekking guides have received a 45-day training from the Hotel Management and Tourism Centre in Nepal. The guides have also received high altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project).

We use standard rooms at star hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes, you stay in teahouses and lodges that generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. The lodges in trekking routes usually provide single and double rooms, or occasionally a dormitory. The toilets in tea houses provide essential and basic facilities and are always outside the room.

In summit base camps, the accommodation will be a tented camp.

Meals

Meals are provided at Guesthouses and lodges on the way and in a star hotel in Kathmandu. We make it sure that the food we provide is hygienic and at the same time suits your palate. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge where you will stay and lunch will be on the way. Foods cooked in lodges and guesthouses on the way are pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat (rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization. In many larger villages you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps.
