Trekking in Nepal

Your Team During Trekking

We organize private trek only, hence you will be accompanied by an English speaking Sherpa guide. However, please note these Sherpa guides are born and brought up in the remote mountain region of Nepal. Most of them are not even formally educated; hence they will be able to communicate in basic English only, however you will greatly appreciate their sense of humor.

You will then have porters as per the requirement. You are required to carry a rucksack with personal belongings such as a camera, your passport and the things that you require. The rest of the things will be carried by the porters. The porters will walk at a fast pace and you will meet them at trek endpoints, each day, be sure that you have all the required items in your rucksack.

The Sherpa guide will be with you all along. Our Sherpa guides are very experienced, hence request you to follow all the instructions given by him for a safer trek.

Equipment Required

No special equipment will be required for trekking in Nepal. You will be trekking through well-established trails. However, we recommend you to bring good down jacket to keep you warm, hiking boot with perfect ankle support, fleece jacket and quality sleeping bags, water bottle. Sleeping bags can also be hired from Kathmandu though will not be very clean.

Physical Fitness

Trekking in the mountain region of Nepal will involve walking over uneven terrain. This can prove physically tiring, especially as the altitude increases. The best thing to do is start with basic exercises, walking up and down. If you have a busy time, then, you should train yourself with exercise machines.

Trekking puts much effort into the quadriceps muscle in front of the thigh hence do start with walking and jogging at least a month prior to your trek. Take stairs whenever possible instead of lifts/elevators.

Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS)

AMS is one of the problems for the trekkers who gain the maximum altitude in a day. Our tour itineraries are designed very professionally to prevent AMS during your treks. However, if you have the symptoms of altitude sickness such as a headache, loss of appetite, nausea, and fatigue then your immediate inform your Sherpa guide. He will help you in which case you will have to walk down to lose the height immediately and seek help from the local health post.

Travel Insurance

Please note, travel insurance is not included in the tour/trek packages. Hence it is worth taking insurance from your country before traveling, to cover against injury, theft or loss. Before buying a new policy, please check whether you have been already covered: some all-risks home insurance policies may cover your possession and medical schemes include cover when abroad.

Tourists should make sure that their insurance policies also cover soft adventure activities during their stay in Nepal such as rafting, trekking etc.; If you are planning some adventurous activities like bungee jumping, rafting and trekking the insurance policy must also include “dangerous activities”.

Choose the policy that covers medical and emergency repatriation, including Helicopter evacuation and in the eventuality of serious illness, accident or if clients are stranded in remote areas due to unexpected bad weather conditions.


Accommodation during treks will be very basic. We request clients not to have high expectation. As you move to the higher altitude, you may even have to share the dormitories and toilets. The accommodation in these regions cannot be booked in advance; hence our guide will try their level best to accommodate you in the best available lodge in the area.


All the meals during the trek will be included in your package. However, please note that in the mountain region, there will only be less variety of food available. You will be offered a fixed meal planned by your Sherpa guide.

National Park, Permit Fees

All these fees are already included in your tour cost. We will require your scanned copies of passport in advance (before your arrival to Kathmandu) so that we can start processing the permit in advance. After you arrive in Kathmandu we will collect your 2 photographs and by the same evening or the next morning we will hand over your required permits.

However, if you are trekking in the restricted areas such as The Upper Mustang, Dolpa, the trek permits for these regions will be advised separately and will not be included in your trek cost. The amount should be paid after you arrive in Nepal. However, there is the video charge of USD 100 per video camera in all national parks which must be paid directly.


The Sherpa guide and porter, who will be along with you, do expect few tips, though it will never be demanded. These people are from a very poor background; hence tips are also their source of income.

In case of emergencies, our Sherpa guide will do anything to help you.
