What is trekking?
Trekking is an adventurous and exploring work. This activities pursuit involves lengthy, multi-day walks and climbs on village and park trails.

Is trekking for me?
We offer the trekking for everyone who is physically and mentally fit, patient, and love the outdoors.

Why is a guide necessarily?
Having guide is not a legal requirement but we cannot send you without any guide having licensed and experienced. You’ll be travelling through wilderness, remote countryside, and high elevations - from an aspect of pure safety, it is highly dangerous to go it alone. Additionally, very few locals in Himalayan villages speak English. Should you get lost (and, with many paths crossing through many, many villages, this is more a likelihood than a possibility), it would be difficult to communicate directions or obtain food and shelter.

What type of insurance should I have? Where can I obtain a policy?
For your own responsibility Travel insurance is mandatory and obtaining for the days you are trekking. Some standard policies only cover up to 4000 meters for evacuation so please confirm with your insurance company if you purchase it from another company. If you get to Nepal and don't have insurance already we can help you purchase it for a reasonable price before you start the trek.

What's the best time of year to book a trek in Nepal?
The best times for trekking the Himalayas are February to May, and then September to December. You can view the sublime beauty of Nepal with glamorous sense.

Are any permits required for trekking?
Its depends on the nature of the trek. Some trekking areas require a special permit for trekking, while as others require only permits to enter conservation or national parks. Most require a Trekking Information Management System (TIMS) card. We handle all permits for you, so you have one less thing to worry about!

How long do treks last?
Most of our Himalayan treks range from one to four weeks.

How long do we spend walking each day?
Trekkers generally walk four to six hours a day. That's between five and fifteen kilometres depending on trail conditions and the state of the weather.


Can you please provide me more information about the tea houses on this trek?
the location and the situation determined the nature of the tea house. Basically they have communal room downstairs with one or two bedroom above them. You have to share their toilet while using but nowadays in low levels attached toilet is found and some of them have hot shower facilities too. But some will have stand pipes. Tea houses use a type of burning stove in main communal area and other room are unheated. Tea houses do not have money exchange facilities. Trekking Planner recommend you to exchange cash in Kathmandu.
At the lower altitudes there are electricity facilities. As cooler temperature drain battery life, ensure your batteries last a little longer by putting it inside pocket of your coat or under your pillow.

Do a guides or porters carry oxygen tanks on the trek?
Exactly it is not necessary buy if essential they can carry. If someone feels the affects of altitude then there are facilities along the trek at various points and it’s easy to get.

How many guides and porters will be there in our group?
A group will have a group leader or a guide who will lead you on the trek. Porters will be there to carry your baggage packs and all the camping gear. One porter will carry two trekkers baggage. A number of supporting staff will depend upon your size of group.
At one time how many litter of water I have to carry in the trek?

Mostly 3-4 litters will be sufficient. You will be able to refill bottles at lunch time. When you are in high altitude you have to drink more water to get rid of altitude diseases.

Is it necessary to carry Trekking poles?
Yes, Trekking Poles make you easy to walk in the rough ways. Trekking poles makes your body and leg to move more safely. So, we suggest you to use it.


What sort of footwear is recommended?
Cosy , sturdy trekking shoes or boots are a must. Ideally your footwear will have Gore-Tex or similar lining, along with thick soles. This will ensure that your feet stay warm and dry, and that you are comfortable walking on rocky paths. Wool socks are recommended instead of cotton, and these too should be thick and warm.

What do I need to know about sun protection?
It may seem counter-intuitive, but your skin is in more danger of sun damage on the mountains than while at the beach! The sun's intensity increases dramatically as we rise in altitude, and fresh snow reflects exponentially more UV rays than does the sand. You will need to protect your skin with clothing and sun block. A sun block specifically for mountain conditions is recommended. If you wear prescription eyeglasses its recommend that you get your prescription fitted to sunglasses.

Is bottled water available everywhere in the trek?
Mainly tea houses on the way have stores which sell bottled water and other supplies that may be needed for you on the trek. There are no any plastic recycleable facilities in Nepal, we encourage you to bring chlorine tablets and use filter water in the teahouses.

Should I have to bring iodine tablets for purifying the water?
You have to bring iodine tablet with you. Chlorine tablets are widely available. The most effective and commonly used version of chlorine is chlorine dioxide, which is tasteless and odourless.

What are the effects of going so high?
Altitude produces physically changes in the body. Higher you go, more pronounced those changes. If after gaining a lot of elevation in a hurry, you experience dizziness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration, you are probably suffering from altitude sickness.

What ill may be appeared if i get in the trek?
It depends on the nature of your illness. If you suddenly feel dizzy or weak, you have to sit or lie down. If you still feel sick, keep a warm and quiet until you can get medical help. You will carry down if no progress we advise travellers to take a personal kit too.
In serious cases, you need helicopter rescue. Our guide will suggest you to use it if its very serious. So, helicopter rescue insurance is necessary for every trekker before you come to trek in this trek.

Would you recommend taking a Down Jacket?
The weather is very flexible in Nepal. It changes according to the time. The weather is changeable in the Himalaya so you can expect to experience four seasons in one day. Make sure you have plenty of warm layers which you can shed or add as required. While even in winter it can be as warm as 19C during the day, the higher the altitude, the colder the temperature and when high up the temperature drops significantly at night to around -10C in October/November, and to around -20C from December to February.


Should I tip my guide? How about my porter?
It is not compulsory; tipping is customary and always appreciated in Nepal and on our treks. Your guides and porters will tremendously appreciate a small gratuity at the end of your trek, as these little extras go a long way towards helping their families. Tipping is a great way to show your appreciation for the team's hard work and devoted attention to your happiness.

How much money should I bring along?
Our treks are all-inclusive. We cover accommodation, food, park fees, permits, and many other costs, as a means of making your adventure as stress-free and convenient as possible.

Is alcohol permitted on trek?
Alcohol is consumed in Nepal. You can buy it in tea houses in the trek. Local alcohol is also available. However we suggest you not to drink alcohol at high altitude. It depends on you.


Can I get a refund if I don't finish the trek?
It’s sometimes the case that trekkers finish ahead of schedule or they end up stopping the trek early for health or personal reasons. If this is the case please understand that we cannot offer any refunds for unused days on the trek. Please understand that our costs are the same as we have an obligation to pay our guides and porters for the time they have committed.
