Trekking in Nepal

A trek in Nepal may be a rustic camping trip or else rely on the local guest house accommodation available in the hills. In some areas, either because of government regulation or lack of facilities, only camping treks are possible. In other areas, your choice will depend on how confident you are walking in remote regions, and on how much comfort you desire. There is no 'best' way to trek, and whichever style you choose will provide you with cultural insight, a good physical workout and spectacular mountain views.

We know trekkers are concerned about being environmentally sensitive on their journeys, and culturally respectful to the local people. You also want a trek that is right for your own travel style and budget. Choosing the right trek for you means knowing your own sensitivities, preferences and budget. Would you enjoy "becoming Nepali" and jumping onto a local bus to reach the trail head, or do you prefer a private car? Will you enjoy befriending the family who runs the lodge, or will the local children who crowd curiously around your camera equipment irritate you or make you nervous? Would you rather stay in a guest house with an indoor bathroom, or are you willing to forgo such accommodations in exchange for a more remote, rugged or primitive trek? With your own needs in mind, your choice of a trek will depend on your personality, the amount of time you have available, and the amount of money you wish to spend. Let us know your preferences and we will put together a trek that suits your needs.


Types of Trekking


Trekking Seasons

Trekking is possible at any time of the year depending on where you are going. The most popular seasons are Autumn and Spring.


Altitude sickness

Our itineraries are designed so that our clients ascend at a sensible and safe rate. The effects of altitude are felt by everyone, even the Sherpas, but most people find that gentle acclimatization allows them to reach higher altitudes without any problems. However, it is recommended that you check with your doctor, who may prescribe you Diamoxx or another altitude medicine "just in case." Thorough information about the potential effects of altitude are available on the Everest Base Camp Medical Clinic website


Trekking Permit

Trekking Permits are required only for treks into restricted and conservation areas. Permits are free for Annapurna, Langtang and Everest regions. Further information is available on the Government of Nepal's Department of Immigration.
