FAQS

How are the treks conducted?

The average trekking groups consists of 4 – 6 people not including the support staff. We have a min of 2 Sherpa guides along with a trek leader/guide who takes care of the daily logistics of the trek. Each client is provided with a trek “Duffel bag” which is then carried by the porters.  There is usually a luggage limit of 10 kg on the trek, the bulk of which comprises of necessary items like sleeping bag,  warm clothing for the evening  etc. Your day pack is all you carry and all personal effects such as camera, binoculars, sun cream and toiletries are carried by yourself.

 

When is the best time to come trekking in Nepal?

There are mainly 2 trekking seasons in Nepal. The autumn season begins after the monsoon from end September to end November. This is also the highly recommended time to travel to Nepal because of the mountain views and air clarity being right after the monsoon season, an ideal time for photography. However, it tends to get over crowded on the trails and the tea houses are generally fully booked so need prior reservation to secure confirmation. Spring season starts from mid February to end of April, it’s much warmer this time and alpine flora like the Rhododendrons start to appear. The downside is the hazy views of the mountains due to warmer weather.

 

Do I have to be in good shape?

The beauty of the tours we offer is such that everyone can participate, regardless of physical ability or athletic experience. Of course on bigger treks like Everest base camp and Annapurna trek one need to be reasonably fit as these treks entail long walking days with a few days at altitudes above 4000 mts. It is also important to be mentally prepared for what you’ll encounter even if you have done some trekking in your own country, you will find trekking in Nepal a different experience.

 

Am I safe travelling  in Nepal?
