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
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

A SAMPLE OF EACH DAY DURING TREK
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.
At above 2-3 p.m. afternoon walk starts and is usually shorter then the morning one lasting for about 2hrs. 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.
