In Nepal, the wedding ceremony has a significant value in one’s life. We take it seriously. The wedding ceremony is usually a huge celebration with loud local musical instruments like Panchai Baja. As the marriage is supposed to last for a lifetime, it is a big deal here in Nepal. The marriage ceremony in Nepal emphasizes on mutual commitment towards each other.
Marriages take place during certain time of the year such as mid-January to mid-March, mid-April, to mid-June and mid-November to mid-December. Deciding a good time for the marriage is usually up to the astrologers of trust. The ceremony is held under a canopy referred as Mandap in the open, usually in front of a house. Or like that of modern days, in a party palace. The venue is decorated with lots of flowers and twinkling lights.
After arrival of both the parties at the venue, bride and bridegroom perform the Puja guided by the priest. Both of them will be dressed according to Nepalese traditional dresses with lots of jewelries. The priest solemnizes the marriage in accordance with the VEDAS, the holy scriptures of the Hindu religion from thousands of year ago. They take blessings from relatives, friends, and family members. The bride and bridegroom are escorted in and out of the venue in a decorated car or in horses in cases of villages. The traditional wedding in Nepal is exciting as well as overwhelming since there is a lot going on at the same time. It requires a lot of planning and bookings before the event. CoreTreks offers an optimized package for low cost Traditional Hindu Wedding in Nepal, so that you can enjoy the moment while we take care of everything else.

Symptoms of Altitude Sickness may start once you reach 1500-2000 meters and upwards. If you gain altitude rapidly without letting your body adapt to the thin oxygen at higher altitudes, you are most likely to suffer from Altitude Sickness.

The itinerary includes acclimatization days to avoid Altitude Sickness. The sickness is common at high altitudes. Please note that sickness is a topic to be taken very seriously. Here are some few extra preventions:
- Avoid climbing rapidly, give your body some time to adjust
- Drink more water, not less than 5 liters a day
- Eat more, eat often, and eat healthily
