“Overall experience was good. I originally signed for EBC and Gokyo lakes trek, but on the way up I realized that I'm not going to make it through Cho La pass. My guide Suman changed the plan right away for EBC trek only with going back different route so I still saw a lot. Suman was always trying to get me best accommodation and we didn't have problem with our flight from Lukla even when a lot of people got stuck there due to worsening weather. Only thing I wish there were a group. Nobody else signed up and I ended up going solo - not what I wanted but the trek still was great.”

“Bijay Lama (our guide) was by far one of the nicest guys we met in Nepal. He spoke English very well and was able to answer all of our questions regarding mountains, wildlife, Sherpa life, etc... He gave us recommendations on food, walking speed and breathing techniques depending on our location throughout the hike. I would highly recommend.”

FAQ 1. Is this trekking difficult? The difficulty level of the trek entirely depends upon the trek you chose. If you happen to be trekking for the first time, or your physical condition does not permit you to (because of age or other medical conditions) you can always look for easy treks. Easy treks have shorter number of days, less distance to be walked in a day, and relatively lower altitudes. You do not have to have prior experience or knowledge to trek to these places. If you are adventurer and are looking for some thrill, you have plenty of options to choose from. Difficult treks have longer number of days. You will have to walk for 5-7hrs a day on an average and these treks are mostly situated in high altitudes. These treks also demand a good level of physical fitness. Unlike other product, trekking is not about more for better. The difficulty level has got nothing to do with the experience you can gain from a trek. Go for what you want to and what your physical ability will allow you to. Do not push yourself too hard. Trekking is not a competition. Its relaxation. 2. Is this trekking expensive? This entirely depends upon how much you are willing to spend on your trek. You can trek luxuriously by spending lavishly or you can backpack. It all depends upon how much your bank balance allows you to. You will get accommodation for as less as 3-4$ per night, or you can pay up to 60-1004 per night for luxury resorts. On an average, you will need not more than 10$ for a meal. If you are looking for economical places, you can eat 3 meals for 10$! But eating at such places come at a great cost of low hygiene rate. Bottom line: Nepal is not an expensive place when it comes to tourism. It is probably one of the places you can have the most economical luxury trek comparing to what a luxury trek would otherwise cost in your country! 3. What preparations should I make before trekking? It is always a good idea to involve yourself in doing physical exercises before trekking. Not that you have to be all athletic and muscular to trek. An average level of physical fitness will make the journey less stressful. Ending up with sore muscles, blisters, joint pain, and back pain can be very discomforting while trekking. This is unlikely to happen if you exercise beforehand. Start exercising at least a month before the trek. You can do cardio exercises like running, jogging, long walks, cycling and swimming. Carry a light backpack along with you to get used to it. Gym work out can be a good option too. Just don’t over-do it. If you are going on an easy trek, you need not be very physically fit. But prior exercising is still a good option. You will only make your journey more comfortable. 4. Do I need special permission to trek? You will not need trekking permits in any of the treks in the Everest region, the Annapurna region and also in the Langtang region. But you will have to pay entry fees while entering a conservation area or a national park. 5. Is drinking water easily available? Availability of drinking water is not the problem. The problem is the cost of it at higher altitude. As you gain height, the price of water rises up to 2-3$ per liter. An alternative way of getting drinking water is by having your water bottles filled in tea houses. Tea houses will provide you boiled water for about 0.4-0.7$ per liter. They are completely safe for drinking. Therefore, do not forget to take at least two water bottles with you. 6. What kind of food is available during trekking? Food is not of any concern while trekking. You will get all kinds of cuisines. For breakfast, tea houses will provide you with eggs cooked in your preferred style along with pan cakes, bread butter, roti, and so on. Various other dishes like pizza, pasta, momo, chowmein and many more are also available. The most preferred dish is Dal Bhaat. It is a typical Nepali meal. Rice is served with vegetable curry, lentils, tomato chutney and meat curry. The best part- an extra helping will no cost you extra! The meal is highly nutritional. It will also keep you fueled for long walks. 7. What kind of accommodation should I expect? Accommodation depends upon the type of trekking you are going for. There are two types of trekking 1. Tea house trekking: You will be spending your night in tea houses. Tea houses are local lodges and hotels. They are small and comfortable enough. Most rooms are shared with two small cots that have mattress, pillows and sheets. If you need spare blankets, you can always ask for it. The rooms have attached bathroom, western flush designed and shower. You will have to pay for hot shower and electricity. Dormitories are also available and a very low cost of about 3-4$ per night. These come with common toilets and bathrooms. The cleanliness of the rooms may not live up to your expectations. Bring your own pillow if possible. Conjunctivitis is a common case you might fall sick of. 8. What are the risks associated with trekking? Trekking is an extreme sport and does come with a lot of risks. Some unavoidable risks are avalanche, heavy rainfall, earthquake, landslide and other such natural calamities. You might fall and injure yourself or catch some viral flue. The deadliest risk of trekking is AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness. This sickness occurs when a great altitude is gained and the body fails to adjust to the changing pressures associated with it. Anyone can fall a victim of the sickness and if not treated in time, it can be fatal. 09. How to avoid Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)? There is absolutely nothing you can do to prepare your body for altitude sickness. But yo can take few precautionary measures to avoid it. They are- 1. Attain height gradually and slowly 2. As you cross over 2000meters, reduce your number of walking hours and walk slow 3. Drink plenty of water 4. Take ample rest. Take more rest if you feel like your body is asking for it 5. Eat high caloric food 6. Avoid smoking or drinking 11. How to diagnose AMS? In order to detect AMS, you need to be aware of the symptoms of them. They are- 1. Headache 2. Nausea and vomiting 3. Dizziness 4. Tiredness 5. Loss of appetite 6. Upset stomach 7. Feeling unsteady 8. Shortness of breath 9. Increased heart rate 10. Difficulty sleeping If you notice any of the symptoms, take immediate precautionary measures such as: 1. Do not climb any higher for the next 48 hours 2. Descend to a lower altitude if possible 3. Take complete rest until you feel well 4. Do not exercise 5. Do not smoke 6. Drink plenty of water 7. Take external oxygen supply if necessary 8. Take anti-sickness medicines If you see no further improvement in your heath within the next 48 hours, you will have to be deported to Kathmandu in a helicopter. Therefore, do not forget to issue and insurance that will cover you helicopter reuse cost. 11. Do I need a guide/porter to trek? There is no such hard and fast rule that you must have one. But it is highly advisable to travel with them. Some of the treks cannot be trekked without a guide most of them are the restricted ones. A guide is someone who will help you with navigations. He will also have a better idea about the places to live in and eat at can negotiated prices for you. They will also help you during medical emergencies. A porter is someone who will carry your load for you so that you can enjoy long walks. In case you hire them, you are entirely responsible for providing them with trekking gears, food and accommodation and other medical facilities. Guide/porter as also available these days. These are people who play the role of both a guide and a porter. Hiring them will save you from bearing an additional cost. 12. Can I trek solo? To some places, yes. But trekking solo in the restricted area is completely forbidden. You will have to trek in a group. A lot of people trek solo in Nepal and have thoroughly enjoyed. Trekking solo has its own benefits. You will not have to adjust your schedule according to anyone. You can also follow your own route as you wish to. Also, finding your way, especially in the non-restricted regions, is very easy. The routes are well marked and pretty straight. Nepal is completely safe for solo trekkers. But you will also have to be a little more careful while travelling alone. 13. What is the difference between trekking independently and trekking with an agency? Trekking independently means trekking without an agency. You can hire a guide or a porter if you want to. You may also have a trekking partner. But the entire journey depends upon the way you want to take it. In treks organized by agencies, they will have a well-planned schedule designed for you which you will have to strictly follow. Most of the times, you will be travelling with a group. The agency will also provide you with a guide and a porter. Trekking with an agency will be a little more expensive than trekking independently or solo. 14. Which is the best season to trek in Nepal? Every season as its own charm. However, the best seasons are spring lasting from April to May and autumn lasting from September to November. In these two season, Nepal sees the maximum number of tourists who come to trek. These are the busiest months of the year. The weather is highly pleasant and favorable for long walks. The trails are blossoming with fresh leaves and flowers. The clear skies allow you to get a great view of the magnificent Himalayas.
