FAQ's

A trekker has to walk a minimum of 5 to 8 hours daily.

As a Himalayan trekking adventure, you will trek through mountainous landscape. Walking up and down the hill during the trek is quite common characteristic of trekking in Nepal.

Yes, definitely. Elevation change is an important part of the trek. As there is a lot of walking up and down the hill, there is an elevation change every day. However, the range of change differs from day to day. It is mostly an uphill trek up to the destination and downhill on the way back. However, the trail winds up and down the mountains throughout the trek regardless of the elevation difference for the day.

Nepal offers trekking adventures throughout the year. However, the autumn and springs seasons are the best seasons to go trekking in Nepal. The months of September-November and March to May offer the best weather and atmosphere for trekking. Althgouh high altitude trekking is quite difficult and impossible in winter season, low altitude trekking can be done throughout the year.

Although age is not a bar to go on a trekking adventure in Nepal, you certainly need to consider a few factors before going on a trek. The basic requirement for trekking in Nepal is good fitness level regardless of your age. Since the activity involves a lot of walking up and down the mountains, you need to be fit enough to indulge in the activity for multiple days.

We highly recommend taking a guide with you when you go on the trekking adventure. Even if the trail is well-trodden and has many trekkers trekking, you need to have a guide for many reasons. First of all, a guide is not only the person to show you the trail. A trekking guide has a huge responsibilty of completing the adventure ensuring the safety of trekkers in the strange mountains. Moreover, the guide will also make your trip more than an adventure. It becomes a lifetime experience. 

The mountains now have basic teahouse and lodge accommodations for trekkers. You can spend overnight in the warmth of guesthouses called teahouses during the trek unlike tented camps in the past.

The most common food during the trek is Dal Bhat. However, you can choose other food items from the menu. The food items differ from region to region. 

You need to prepare your stuff wisely for the trek. The backpack you get ready for the trek should have all essentials and avoid any unnecessary stuff in there. Check this equipment list for a better understanding of what to pack for the trek. 

As a high altitude trekking adventure, the trek always has a risk of getting altitude sickness. While it is not predictable who, where, and how they will get it, we all need to be well-aware and prepared for the unwanted. As we gain altitude during the trek, we should be more careful on our pace of walk, food, water, rest, and recovery. Being careful and taking it easy in the mountains can reduce the chance of getting altitude sickness.

Yes, permits are necessary for the trek. Since, you are going on our package, we take care of everything. You do not need to worry about arranging the permit for yourself.

When you are on our trek package, we provide porters to carry your backpack in the mountains. A porter carries the backpacks of two trekkers.You suggest you to keep your backpack around 10 kg. 

Yes, you will need some cash in the mountain. Although your major meals are included in our package, you may need money for drinks, shower, souvenir shopping, wifi, device charging, and tips to guide and porters at the end of the trip. 

We will brief you on how much to take on the first day of the trip when we meet in Kathmandu.

No, there is no acclimatization break during the trek. Although it is a Himalayan trekking trip, it does not require you to take any extra days for acclimatization. You can adjust in the climate as you trek to the higher elevation.

We focus on small group adventures to ensure that every one is well-taken care of and they enjoy the trek. We keep our group to the maximum limit of 16 people.

In that unfortunate case, we will make sure that you are well taken care of. If you cannot continue your journey further towards the destination and want to rest or return back, we will arrange a porter to be with you and take care of you while rest of the group members continue the trek.
