Trekking Facts

Your Team

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 bought 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.


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.

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.

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.

In case of emergencies, our Sherpa guide will do anything to help you. However, you should have the travel insurance from your home country that covers medical and emergency repatriation, including Helicopter evacuation, in the eventuality of serious illness or accident or if clients are stranded in remote areas due to unexpected bad weather conditions.


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.

Any additional consumption over the regular menu will incur extra cost and will have to be paid by you. Lunch will always be light, consisting of vegetarian items only. Non- veg dinner will be provided twice a week. We recommend carrying a bottled mineral water for drinking.


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 the very poor background; hence tips are also their source of income.

It is totally up to you to reward Sherpa guide/Porters after the service is over, the amount may depend on how satisfied you are from the overall service provided by them.


You will not require any experience for the trekking. However, you should be physically fit to walk in an uneven terrain for at least 5-6 hours a day.

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 in 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.
