Trekking IN NEPAL

Since early times, Nepal has the reputation of being a remote and magical mountain Kingdom. Although no longer so remote. Nepal's natural beauty continues to attract travelers from all over the world, who come to experience the Nepal's uniqueness as trekking destination.
  
The prime attraction is the Himalayan ranges. An ancient Sanskrit proverb states "A hundred divine epochs would not be sufficient to describe all the Himalayas!" Of the 14 peaks in the world above 8000 meters, 8 are in Nepal and beneath the backdrop of these majestic peaks lie Nepal's hill countries, where most of the major trekking routes are located. There is the cultural scenery that represents the many ethnic groups in these trekking routes . Also there is the fact that the natural beauty is still untouched by modern civilization. Although the Himalayas are still isolated from the few roads that Nepal has, trekking in Nepal has further more increased its popularity.

During the busy months of September to November and February to April, the popular trek routes in Nepal, particularly the Annapurna sanctuary, Annapurna circuit and the Everest base camp areas, attract the majority of the trekkers. Access to these area are well possible . There are fine tea houses offering good eating and sleeping support to the backpackers. We as experienced trekking agents in kathmandu we have gone further and explored new terrain such as the foothills of Jungle, Ganesh and Lamjung Himal. These entire untouched areas offer equally rewarding trekking with few other trekkers and delightful villages and people in a spectacular environment.

For those seeking greater challenges, the recently opened Kanchenjunga in east Nepal the Manaslu and Dhaulagiri himals in central and Dolpo in the far west may be of interest. Similarly Sherpa supported" peak climbing" such as Mera Peak (6461),using a rarely approached route and Island Peak (6189)) lying below the flanks of the massive south wall of Lhotse, are among the favorites.

In the section below you will find detailed information as the different areas where we operate our treks, peak climbing and expeditions. The treks, as described are only suggested itineraries and may be considerably modified to suit your personal requirements.

Every trekking day starts with a wake up the kitchen boys from tent to tent by leaving a big pot of hot water for wash ups. Morning tea/ coffee as per client's wish will be served. After while, breakfast will be served. At the same time, the Sherpas start dismounting the tents and porters start packing up.

The trek usually starts every day after the breakfast a around 8 a.m. Mostly the Sirdar will be leading the group. In case of the big group, Sherpa accompany the scattered group members supporting even from the back side of the caravan. Every client is free to walk at his/her own speed. Speed is not a problem even a delay of 2/3 hours to the camping site is usual for some slow walkers. But Sherpas are always with them for necessary support. There is no hurry in the trek. Leisurely walk is the feature of trekking in Nepal – looking around the country side and taking photographs, etc.

By the time it is mid-day, a mini restaurant pops in the middle the wilderness ready to serve hot lunch by the cooking team who usually arrives before the rest of the group. The break for the lunch last for 1and half to 2 hrs.

The moment group starts arriving at the camping site usually fixed in the outskirts of the villages, the cooking team start preparing tea/coffee. By the time, tea coffee is served with snacks like biscuits and cookies, the Sherpas with the help of the porters start mounting the tents etc. Under the guidance of the cook the kitchen team starts cooking dinner, the major meal of the day which will be served at about 7-8 p.m. After dinner there will be plenty of time for chatting, drinking, singing, dancing and above all for discussing the next days journey with Sirdar with some feedback from the clients. As trekking is undoubtedly a team work, day to day discussion help ensure full co-ordination between the guests and crew so as to make the trek most enjoyable and memorable one.


ORGANIZING YOUR TREK

We basically arrange two types of treks

Tea-House Treks

Camping Treks

Tea-House Treks: The most popular way of experiencing classic treks of Nepal is by using local inns for accommodation. Decent hotel accommodation for trekkers is most readily available in the Annapurna, Langtang and Everest Region. In these areas you can operate with a bare minimum of equipment and rely on lodges for food and shelter. Though bedding is available in the lodges as a cotton-filled quilt that may not sufficiently incubate you. So it is always better to carry your own sleeping bags

Camping Treks: The classic style of trekking in Nepal is to camp in tents and employ porters to carry your gears and Sherpas to set up camp, cook and serve meals. You carry a backpack with only a water bottle, camera and jacket. In the camping treks there are numerous hidden expenses that drive up the rice depending on the destination, mode of transportation and size of the group. Because of the food is carried by the porters, a variety of meals is possible. On camping trek you sleep in a tent so our itinerary should not rely on village settlements. And so we can comfortably trek to remote regions and to high altitudes.
