trekking for me?
Yes, trekking is for everyone. If you are
reasonably fit and enjoy walking you will find a
trek in the holiday plan to suit you. Normally
the shorter treks tend to be easier whilst the
longer ones often require a better standard of
fitness. Just check out the trek grade and
choose one that suites your fitness and
interest. It is also worth remembering if we are
tailoring your tour, you can choose the pace and
direction to suit you and your experience.
How long the trek will be?
Generally, the duration of trek depends on your
time, interest and location. Your trek can last
anywhere from 2-3 days to an entire month or
longer if you wish. We can accommodate day
hikes, cultural visits to local villages, and
relaxing rest days on your trek. The decision is
up to you.
How difficult are the treks?
The difficulty of our treks depends on where you
want to trek and how long you want to go. The
shorter Treks tend to be easier while the longer
ones require some physical fitness. Be prepared
for some steep trails leading to amazing views.
The pace at which you hike is up to you. We have
friendly and dependable porters to assist you
with your personal gear.
What are the teahouses like?
They are the combination of guesthouse,
restaurant, and social hang out. We encourage
all trekkers along the Everest, Langtang, and
Annapurna treks to try our tea house treks. Our
many years of experience along these routes have
helped us find the friendliest, cleanest, and
most enjoyable teahouses with the best views.
Most teahouses have running water. Many have hot
water available for bathing. But we discourage
our groups from using water heated by wood fires
due to lack of firewood in most villages.
Deforestation is a big environmental concern in
Nepal They are also a great way help support
Will we have private rooms and bathrooms?
Private rooms are available in most teahouses
except for those at very high altitudes. Most
bathrooms are shared. On our camping treks we
also provide bathroom facilities for our groups.
Where do we eat our meals?
If you are on a teahouse trek you will eat
breakfast and dinner at your teahouse. We will
stop for lunch at one of the various trail side
restaurants. And snacks are always easy to find.
If you are on a camping trek we will prepare all
meals and snacks.
What type of food is served?
Most tea house serves the traditional Nepali
meal Dal Bhat (rice and curried lentils). All
teahouses we stay at have a variety of different
foods on the menu including noodles, rice,
potatoes, vegetables and soup. Some have Nepali
versions of western food such as pizza and
French fries the choice is yours. Sodas and beer
are available at most of the teahouses and of
course Nepali milk tea is served every where.
How hygienic the food is?
It’s our prime concern, which is why we do our
best to choose teahouses and restaurants with
clean and sanitary kitchens. On our camping
treks, we provide a cook to prepare safe and
tasty meals with our own set of cookery as well
as hygienic cleaning facilities.
Where do we get water during the trip?
All teahouses have boiled water for trekkers.
Your guide will provide you boiled or iodize
water of your need. We discourage the purchase
of bottled water while on the trail. The plastic
bottles are difficult to dispose and have become
an environmental problem.
What type of shoes or boots should I wear?
The proper footwear depends on the trek. Shorter
treks can be done in comfortable running shoes
while longer ones require sturdy but lightweight
hiking boots. In Kathmandu, you can find some
outdoor gear shops selling or renting these
items. If you want to avoid looking one another
shops to find boots of your size, we encourage
you to bring these items along with you after
all – proper fit is a must.
What will the weather be like?
We pay close attention on weather reports before
any of our tours departure. Of course, we send
you details after finalizing – the route.
How will the altitude effect me?
Altitude sickness can be a worry for many people
coming from sea level. Which is why our
Itinerary is specially designed to give our
customers extra days to acclimatize to the
higher altitudes. Our guides are trained to spot
any signs of altitude sickness and are attentive
What happens if there is an emergency?
Our guides are trained to deal with most of the
basic ailments that occur during a trek, however
if there is a serious emergency, then outside
help is required. If this is the case we
initially cover the cost of an evacuation until
your insurance company can deliver the payment
To avoid losing payment of this regard you
should have your own insurance before coming to
How much money should I bring for the trek?
The amount of money you bring on a trek depends
on you. Cold sodas during the day and an
occasional beer after a long day of hiking can
be awfully nice. These along with any souvenirs
and film are personal expenses. We have a safe
in our office where plane tickets and money can
What sort of guides do you have?
We have some of the most dependable and most of
all our guides are friendly and always willing
to share their knowledge on the Nepali culture,
who have spent years exploring the mountains and
countryside of Nepal. All guides speak good
English and have a deep knowledge of the various
trekking routes. Our guides are attentive to
react at any situation, and most all our guides
are friendly and always willing to share blend
Do your guides also speak other language as well
Of course, there are some guides and it is
possible to arrange on special request.
What clothes should I bring?
Choosing the right clothing is very important.
You want to have enough clothes to stay warm or
cool yet not over pack. Usually you will have
warm days and cold nights. A warm jacket either
fleece or down can be nice for the evening. Long
under wear and wool socks are good for warmth
too. We encourage people to bring a light pair
of pants and shorts for hiking. Sunscreen and
glasses are a must. Rain and hail can appear on
a trek so we suggest a Gore-Tex jacket. Most
gear can be purchased in Kathmandu or Pokhara at
one of the many outdoor gear shops.
