Trekking in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal has been a popular activity in the mountains of Nepal for a long time. Nepal is a major destination for trekkers and peak climbers alike, as it is generally considered a safe country for trekking and peak climbing in the mountain areas, and Nepal offers treks and climbs that range from easy and relaxing to extreme and physically challenging. We particularly recommend a more relaxing pace if it is your first time to Nepal to allow yourself time to explore and take in the beauty of the surroundings. Trekking in Nepal is not just about walking from one place to another on your way to a final destination; instead, it is more about the experience of observing Nepal’s diverse society, religions, and geography. While you are trekking at the higher elevations, you must make sure to acclimatize appropriately, and you must keep in mind that you will be sharing the trail with many kinds of wildlife.

Trekking in Nepal is primarily divided into two types: 1. Camping trekking and 2. Teahouse trekking. Camping trekking is suitable for the places where teahouses are not available. Teahouse trekking is possible in Everest, Annapurna and Lang tang, which are connected with a network of good teahouses.

Nepal is a major destination for trekkers and peak climbers alike, as it is generally considered a safe country for trekking and peak climbing in the mountain areas.

Teahouse Trekking

We offer modest accommodations and a reasonable standard of food at country lodges along the trails. Our guides and porters lead the trek carrying all the luggage and equipment.

Camping Trekking

Camping trekking we offer all the necessary food and camping equipment. Our guides, cooks, and porters will take care of all the technical and logistical aspects of the trip. Every day our staff will set up camp along the trail and our well-trained cooks will prepare the food according to your tastes.

Trekking Grades

Easy Trekking: Involves up to 6 hours of walking in a day on good trails with plenty of time for relaxing. The altitude on these treks generally does not exceed 3,500 meters above sea level. Anyone who enjoys regular exercise and is in relatively good physical condition can easily make these treks.

Moderate trekking: Involves 6-8hrs of walking in a day in more remote areas, reaching altitudes of approximately 4,500 meters above sea level. A reasonable level of fitness is required as you are required to follow routes that ascend and descend. Some experience hiking or trekking is advisable.

Strenuous trekking: Strenuous trekking is harder and is only suitable for regular hikers as the treks are generally more demanding and may involve 7-8 hours of walking in a day at altitudes up to 5,500 meters above sea level. You should be physically fit and appropriate preparation is imperative. Some days may involve crossing a pass with up to 10 hours walking.

Altitude & Acclimatization

Proper acclimatization is very important and our routes are planned specifically to allow for gradual gains in altitude. Many of our treks include extra days to allow time for acclimatization. By slowly gaining elevation we can gradually acclimatize, allowing us to be fit, healthy, and prepared for the journey. We offer advice about acclimatization and take a sensible approach to all of our treks. Anyone who is reasonably fit and healthy should have no trouble acclimatizing on our climbing and trekking trips.

Group Sizes

Small groups are better and help to reduce our impact on the environment while enabling us to provide more personalized services. The maximum group size on most of our treks/tours is 20 people and we are more than happy to offer tours to individuals traveling alone.

Best Season For Trekking in Nepal

  • You can trek in any season you’d like but the best season has to be the peak trekking season (Mid September to early December). The skies are clear and it’s the best time to trek.
  • You could also trek between February and April. This is the end of the dry season and can be an alternative season if you can’t trek during the peak trekking season.
  • You can also trek from November to late January. Even though the skies are pretty clear in this season, the weather gets really cold and it snows a lot(duh!). This can be a hindrance since many passes do get blocked because of the snow.
  • May-June can also be a good time to trek. It’s pre-monsoon in Nepal. New flowers bloom. The red rhododendron forests can be an unforgettable spectacle for you.
  • June- Mid September is comparatively the worst season to trek. The monsoon starts and with the start of the monsoon, starts the reign of leeches. Watching as the droplets of rain kiss the green forests can be a mesmerizing event but this also brings difficulty while trekking.
