Trekking in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal will take you through a country that has captured the imagination of mountaineers and explorers for over 100 years. You will meet people in remote mountain towns whose lifestyle has not changed in generations. Most people trust foreigners. Nepal is one of the few countries that has never been ruled by a foreign power. Many of the values associated with a hiking trip at home are not of equal importance during a trek in Nepal. Isolation is traditionally a crucial element of any desert experience, but in Nepal, it is impossible to get away from people completely, except for short periods of time or at extremely high elevations.

Environmental concerns should include the effects of conservation measures on the rural population and the economic effects of tourism on indigenous populations. Even traditional national park management needs to be adapted because there are significant population centers within the Sagarmatha (Mount Everest) and Langtang National Parks. Everest Trekking is most popular trekking destination in Nepal.

Nepal Camping Trek:

This classic style of trekking is carried out especially in remote areas of Nepal that supply all camping equipment along with food and employ chargers to carry their gear and sherpas to set up tents where they will sleep and a well-trained cook will prepare hot meals at your service. You carry your small backpack with a water bottle, a camera, and your day clothes. As a guide, I take care of everything, I use the appropriate number of porters to carry all the equipment, trekking equipment, and lead the entire crew.

On a typical Camping Trek day, he starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea in his tent, along with a bowl of hot water for his morning wash. Breakfast will be served at the table with porridge, toast, eggs, pancakes, and tea/coffee. During breakfast, the staff will pack the tents, so pack your bags before breakfast. After breakfast at 7 o’clock, everyone should be ready to start walking. The reason for this early is to take advantage of the cool morning when walking is easier; also, the morning air is very clear, allowing a better view of the mountains than at other times of the day.

Nepal Tea House Style/lodge Trekking:

This type of trekking is popular in certain regions of Nepal where accommodation is available. Particularly in the Everest region. Annapurna Region and Langtang Region. In these areas, you can walk with minimal equipment and trust the accommodation. The basic idea of trekking is the same; These are the services I provide on the teahouse walks:

Here the porters carry the client’s gears and I will accompany you as a guide during the day. We sleep in the accommodations available on the trails and eat hot meals according to the menu of the accommodation and I take care of all the arrangements. Every day, the walk starts between 7 and 8 in the morning. Before that, we provided hot water for showering and hot drinks tea/coffee/hot chocolate with breakfast. Lunch between 11 and 12 in the morning and end of the day.

Obviously, this hike will also provide equal opportunities to enjoy views of nature and culture. Camping Trek has a richer service than Tea-House Trek because Camping Trekkers pay more for all crew members.

Although trekking in Nepal can be organized throughout the year, October to May are considered the best months for trekking. The monsoon-coinciding summer months of the year starting in mid-June and drain in mid-September, making trips humid and warm. Mountain views may not be at their best, as rain clouds and mist over the mountains occasionally obscure the enchanting views. These times are blessed for the botanical enthusiast, as the highest valleys and meadows flourish with flowers and lush vegetation. During the monsoon, it does not mean that it will rain every day. Also, some of the busiest trails won’t be crowded and some people like it that way. It can actually be enjoyed at the top of the Annapurna Circuit around Marfa, Jomsom, and Muktinath, as the monsoon does not enter this trans-Himalayan area.

Note: – It is recommended to bring insect repellent during the trek during the summer months.

Autumn, which is the best season for trekking, faces the excellent weather and the tempting views of the mountains. January and February are characterized by cold weather with occasional snowfall at the highest elevations. Again, great views are common. These months are popular and ideal for trekking for those who are well equipped or who remain at lower elevations below 3,000 meters.

The end of February brings spring in Nepal and offers exciting trekking for those who are interested in flowers, birds, and natural grandeur. The different varieties of wildflowers, especially the rhododendrons, make the mountainside above the 8,000-foot haunting paradise this season.

April and May are the expedition season and the best time to climb the high peaks. It’s a little warm at the lower elevations, but the occasional haze causes a beautiful view of the mountains. At higher elevations of over 4,000 meters, the mountain views are excellent and the temperature is quite moderate even at night.

Often known as acute mountain sickness (AMS) it is a particularly important medical consideration during trekking in Nepal. Altitude sickness means the effect of altitude on those who ascend too quickly to elevations above 3,000 m.

The initial symptoms of AMS are as follows:

Nausea vomiting

Loss of appetite


Persistent headache

Dizziness, light-headedness, confusion,

Disorientation, drunk gait.

Weakness, fatigue, lassitude, heavy legs.

Mild swelling of hands and face

Irregular breathing and respiratory irregularities.

Reduced urine output.

These symptoms must be taken very seriously. In the event that any of the above symptoms appear, any further promotion should be reconsidered, otherwise, a more serious problem may occur which can even cause death sometimes within a few hours. The only cure for altitude sickness is to descend to lower elevations immediately and have no other cure or substitute. Acclimatization that amounts to no more than 300 to 500 meters per day above 3000 meters and the proper amount of rest are the best methods to prevent AMS. The literature and brochure published by the “Himalayan Rescue Association” consist of detailed information on AMS. The Central Immigration Office and all trekking agencies in Kathmandu distribute this brochure at no cost. Since these documents also provide information on the list of medical supplies.
