The immense contrasts in altitudes and climates found here support an equally spectacular of lifestyles, vegetation and wildlife. Trekking in the mountains of Nepal is more a cultural experience than a wilderness expedition. You will be passing through picturesque villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups. You will see Cheetri farmers working in their fields and Tamang herders grazing their animals on the steep slopes.

It becomes necessary to know which trek matches most with your physical capabilities in order to enjoy your trekking in Nepal. Thus, we have categorized all our treks in the following ranks.

Grade (Easy) ^ 
Easy trekking by Himalayan Standard is generally up to 2000m. There are plenty of ups and downs on well-maintained trails. This type of trip is best suited for those who leave a reasonably active life. The trek takes about 3 to 7 days, walking about 4 to 5 hours a day. 

Grade (Moderate) ^^ 
It involves longer treks (Five to ten days) on maintained trails. This type of trek includes perhaps day excursions to higher elevations. It is desirable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these trek, generally we attain the altitude between 900m to 3000m. This trek is also moderate trek. 

Grade (Moderate to Strenuous) ^^^
It is a reasonably demanding trek at an altitude up to 4000m with side trips to higher elevations. This is classified as ill - defined trails, away from habitation.

Grade (Strenuous) ^^^^ 
These treks must be fully supported. The altitude attained between 3500 to 5000m. & this trek also involves several night stays above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit & enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas. 

Grade (Very Strenuous) ^^^^^ 
This trek is best described as very strenuous trek. This trek is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack as the treks sometime will be in very remote areas reaching crossing. During trek, you have to cross snow - covered passes in very remote areas or climb up to 6500m. There it is normally desirable to have some previous experience of handling axes & crampons. It is essential to accept medical certificates prior to start the trek.

Trekking in Nepal can be undertaken throughout the year. There are four seasons in Nepal. Each season has its distinct attraction to offer. The seasons are classified as follows:

AUTUMN (Sept - Nov): This Autumn season is considered the best time for trekking in Nepal, which offers excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views. Moderate temperatures, clear sky with outstanding views, making it a great time to do any of our trek. Occasional short storms may dump snow at high altitudes.

WINTER (Dec - Feb): This season is noted for occasional snowfall at higher elevations in Himalayas. Though it gets colder in night, often it offers the clear day / blue sky and relatively less trekkers on the trail. However, we need to be selective in choosing the winter trekking as climbing and crossing high passes trip won’t be an ideal option. Trek like Everest base camp, Annapurna Panorama, Annapurna Dhaulagiri, Annapurna Sanctuary, Instant Everest treks etc can be done even in winter.

Spring (March - May): Different varieties of wild flowers, specially the rhododendrons make the hillside a haunting paradise during this spring season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevation the mountain views are excellent and temperature is quite moderate.

Summer (Jun-Aug):  summer time from June till mid September makes travel wet and warm. These times are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. Trekking in the rain-shadow (places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains) areas north of the Himalaya like Upper Mustang and Dolpo could be an ideal trek selection.

Altitude sickness often known as acute mountain sickness (A.M.S.) in general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally in altitudes of over 3000 m. We ensure minimal risk by building in rest days into our trekking itineraries. Most people will feel some affect of altitude, shortness of breath and possibly a light headed, which is fairly common. Acute mountain sickness is very different and normally involves a severe headache, sickness and loss of awareness. In almost every potential case there are enough warning signs to take appropriate action.
Our expert and trained guides will advise you about any health requirements and also altitude sickness while you are trekking, so you should not worry about it, we do however recommend you get advice from you travel doctor or health advisor before you leave. The following information gives you an idea about high altitude sickness and how to minimize the affects
There are three stages of altitude sickness and symptoms.
1. Normal AMS Symptoms - Should expect but not worry. 
Following are the normal altitude symptoms that you should expect but not be worried about. Every trekker will experience some or all of these, no matter how slowly they ascend.

  • Periods of sleeplessness.
  • Need more sleep than normal (often 10 hours or more)
  • Occasional loss of appetite.
  • Vivid, wild dreams especially at around 2500-3800 meters in altitude.
  • Periodic breathing.
  • The need to rest/catch your breath frequently while trekking, especially
  • Above 3500 meters.
  • Runny nose.
  • Increasing urination while moving to/at higher altitudes (a good sign) 
  • Dizziness.

2. Mild AMS Symptoms - NEVER GO HIGHER 
Many trekkers in the high valleys of the Himalaya get mild AMS, admit or acknowledge that you are having symptoms. You need have only one of the following symptoms to be getting altitude sickness.

  • Mild headache.
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness.
  • Weakness.
  • Sleeplessness.
  • Dry Raspy cough.
  • Fatigue/Tired.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Runny nose.
  • Hard to breath.

What to do if a mild symptom doesn't go way?

  • If you find mild symptoms developing while walking, stop and relax (with your head out of sun) and drink some fluids. Drink frequently.
  • If mild symptoms developing while walking, stop have rest, drink some fluids and take 125-250mg Diamox. Diamox generally takes one to four hours to begin alleviating symptoms. Drink more water and consider staying close by. 
  • If symptoms develop in the evening, take 125-250mg Diamox and drink plenty of fluids again.
  • If symptoms partially go away but are still annoying it is safe to take another 250mg Diamox 6-8 hours later.
  • If mild symptoms continue getting worse try descending for a few hours which may be more beneficial than staying at the same altitude. Going higher will definitely make it worse. You're here to enjoy trekking not to feel sick.

3. Serious AMS Symptoms - IMMEDIATE DESCENT

  • Persistent, severe headache.
  • Persistent vomiting.
  • Ataxia (loss of co-ordination, an inability to walk in a straight line, making the sufferer look drunk)
  • Losing consciousness (inability to stay awake or understand instructions) 
  • Mental confusion or hallucinations.
  • Liquid sounds in the lungs.
  • Very persistent, sometimes watery, cough.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Rapid breathing or feeling breathless at rest.
  • Coughing clear fluid, pink phlegm or blood (a very bad sign).
  • Severe lethargy/fatigue.
  • Marked blueness of face and lips.
  • High resting heartbeat (over 130 beats per minute)
  • Mild symptoms rapidly getting worse.

Dangerous cases of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) 

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) 
This is a build-up of fluid around the brain. It In most cases the first five symptoms on the mild and severe lists previously. Coma from HACE can lead to unconsciousness are death within 12 hours from the onset of symptoms, but normally takes 1-2 days to develop. At the first sign of ataxia begin treatment with medication, oxygen and descent. Usually 4 to 8mg of dexamethasone is given as a first does, then 4mg every six hours, Diamox every 12 hours and 2-4 liters /minute oxygen. Descent is necessary but a PAC (portable altitude chamber) bag will often be used first if available.

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) 
This is an accumulation of fluid in the lungs and is very serious. It is responsible for all the other mild and serious symptoms and it is often accompanied by a mild fever. By far the treatment is oxygen at 4 liters a minute but using PAC (portable altitude chamber) bag treatment is a good substitute. If there is no PAC bag or oxygen then descent will be life saving. HAPE can lead to unconsciousness are death very quick.

Prevention of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

  • Allow sufficient time for acclimatization (After 3000 meters).
  • Don't make rapid Ascent. Don't go too far too fast.
  • No Alcohol, Sleeping pills and Smoking.
  • Drink more fluid 3-4 Liters a day, clean water-boiled or treated / tea / coffee / soup / juice etc.
  • Climb high and sleep low.
  • Do not trek/travel alone, take guide/porter.
  • Follow the advice from your guide, hotel, local, guide book.
  • Descent if mild symptoms rapidly getting worse.
  • Never leave or descent sick person along.
  • Avoid getting cold.
  • Take an easy and comfortable trekking route even if its longer.

First Aid Kit 
This is the basic list to cover the more common ailments that affect trekkers. Climbing groups, expeditions and trekkers going to isolated areas will need a more comprehensive kit.

  • Bandage for sprains
  • Plasters/Band-aids
  • Iodine or water filter (optional)
  • Moleskin/Second skin - for blisters
  • Antiseptic ointment for cuts
  • Anti-bacterial throat lozenges (with antiseptic)
  • Aspirin/Paracetamol - general painkiller
  • Oral rehydration salts
  • Broad-spectrum antibiotic (norfloxacin or ciprofloxin)
  • Anti-diarrhea medication (antibiotic)
  • Diarrhea stopper (Imodium - optional)
  • Antibiotic for Guardia or similar microbe or bacteria
  • Diamox 250/500mg (for altitude sickness)
  • Sterile Syringe set (anti-AIDS precaution)
  • Gel hand cleaner.

The following is a suggested list of clothing, equipment and personal effects you may consider bringing with you when you are doing an organised trek with us. Much of the gear can be purchased (or hired) in Kathmandu at reasonable prices (although not necessarily of long lasting quality) thereby saving on your baggage weight on the way over. At the end of your trip, you may consider donating items no longer required to your porter or guide - leaves room for taking home those souveniers!! 

Remember that what you bring someone (and it may be you) has to carry; so pack discriminately and CHECK THE WEIGHT - the porter usually carries two kit-bags, your tent and his own gear!! You will generally need warmer gear for those treks in the Everest Region than the Annapurna Region. Quantities are suggested only and will depend on duration of your visit. Be aware that here are baggage restrictions of 15 kilos on internal flights, should you need to use them.

Tip: You can lighten your load by choosing the alternatives such as thermals against heavy over- clothes depending on the time of year and how high you will be trekking.

Your enjoyment of your time in Nepal will depend a great deal on how healthy you are when you arrive and how healthy you stay during your visit. Your trek leader is experienced in dealing with ailments which you are likely to encounter during your trek. If at any time you feel unwell, let your trek leader know. Inform the trek leader of any medication you are taking and ask his advice before taking any other medication. Some medication may have a different reaction when used at higher altitudes.

Personal hygiene is very important. Wash your hands using soap before any meals. We provide a bowl of warm washing water and soap at each meal stop. 

Toilet facilities:
throughout Nepal are usually very basic and toilet paper and soap are not often provided - except in hotels and some restaurants. We erect a 'pit' toilet tent at the lunch stop and the campsite. We also supply you with rolls of toilet paper. 

It is advisable to carry with you a container of "wet-ones" for cleaning hands during the day. The Nepali people generally do not use toilet paper, they use water to wash themselves. Consequently, the left hand is not used for eating or passing things to each other.Worth remembering!! 

Stomach upsets:
It is common for many first time visitors to experience some stomach and associated upset for a short time due to the change in diet. This normally only lasts a few days. You should, however take some precautions to minimise your encounter with these problems. Trying the local food is part of the experience of travel but take care with what you eat and drink and from where you buy your meals -ask your guide. 

Water:
Be very careful about the water you drink. Even some bottled soft drinks can be suspect. Do not drink or clean your teeth with untreated water from the taps or from the rivers and streams. The water may look clean and refreshing, but many a bug is lurking there to catch the unwary traveler. This goes for ice too - make sure the ice is made from treated water. The water can be treated in a number of ways to make it fit for drinking. Boiling the water vigorously for about five minutes is usually enough but remembers that at high altitude water boils at a lower temperature and all of the bugs may not be killed. The use of iodine to purify the water is recommended both as an effective and environmentally sound method of treatment. The tablet form is the most effective but you may need something to give a nicer flavor to the water afterwards. The use of bottled water is being discouraged because of the problem with the discarded plastic bottles. We provide you with boiled water for drinking and teeth cleaning. If you are not sure - ask your trek leader. 

Food: 
As for the food - they say that if you can't cook it, boil it or peel it don't eat it. Salads and fruit should be washed in treated water or peeled where possible. Some restaurants advertise the fact that they use treated water in their food preparation. There is no need to become overly concerned but do choose carefully. The food you are served on the trek is hygienically prepared and should cause you no problems. You may experience some stomach discomfort until your digestive system gets used to the change in diet. This should last only a few days. 

Nepali trekking words: bistarai - slowly: chitto - quickly: oraalo - downhill: ukaalo - uphill: jumjum - let's go: thakyo - tired

You don't need to be a mountaineer with rippling muscles to enjoy trekking. If you are reasonably fit, have a spirit of adventure and are not afraid of walking, you qualify. There are excellent trekking agencies who will take care of all the details like government permits, air/bus tickets, guides, porters, food, tents, and equipment. All you have to do on the trail is concentrate on putting one foot before the other. On many popular trekking trails, you can also trek in what is known as "tea house style"- eating and staying in the many lodges and tea houses on the way instead of camping in tents.


Equipment:
Your trekking agency will provide equipment like sleeping bags, foam mattresses and tents. All you need to bring are your personal wear like walking boots and sand shoes, a water-and wind-proof jacket, woolen shirts, T-shirts, a thick pullover, shorts/skirts, and trousers/track suits. Thermal underwear is necessary for high altitudes and cottons are best for lower and warmer altitudes. Also don't forget a water bottle, Swiss army knife sewing kit, torch light with spare batteries, extra boot laces, sun glasses, sun cream, and personal medical supplies. Bring an elongated canvas bag or duffel bag to put your clothing and equipment in. There will be porters to carry the kit bag.
