Trekking in Nepal

Since early times, Nepal has the reputation of being a remote and magical kingdom. Although no longer so remote, Nepal's natural beauty continues to attract travllers all over the world, who comes to experience for themselves Nepal's uniqueness as a trekking destination.The prime attraction of trekking is the Himalayan ranges. 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 country where most of the major trekking routes are located. Similarly the cultural scenery that represents the many ethnic groups in these trekking routes and the fact that the natural beauty, still untouched by modern civilization are still isolated from the few roads that Nepal has, trekking in Nepal has further increased its popularity.

A day on an organized Trek : All our treks are managed by a Sherpa team with the "Sirdar" (trek guide) responsible for not only your well being, but also that of his trek staff and porters. The day starts at around 6 a.m. with a cup of tea. Soon a bowl of warm water is provided for washing. After packing, a breakfast of porridge/muesli, cornflakes, bread and eggs with tea/coffee/hot chocolate is served. The day's trek starts around 7:30 a.m. The reason for this early start is take advantage of the cool morning when walking is easiest; also the morning air very clear, allowing a better view of the mountains than at other times of the day. Porters or pack animals carry all camp equipment, food, fuel and duffel bags. All you need to carry in your small daypack are water bottle, light jacket and other small items you may need on the trail. The morning walk to the lunch spot takes about three hours. The cook and his kitchen staff walk ahead to prepare lunch to be ready by the time the group arrives. In Nepal, we usually serve hot lunches whereas in Tibet treks, pack lunches are provided. Camp is normally reached between 3 and 4 in the evening. Water to freshen up with tea and snacks are available while the staff pitches camp. One is then free to rest or explore the nearby surroundings according to one's wishes till the evening meal. Usually evening meal is served around 7 p.m. in the dining tent furnished with a lantern, table and camp stools. Food on trek is plentiful, healthy and varied, prepared by cooks trained in kitchen and table hygiene. Enough staple products are carried for the entire outing. Fresh supplies of vegetables, eggs, meat etc. are purchased locally wherever and whenever available. The trekking cost depends on the season, the number of people in the group, the length of the trek, trek area and the type of trek you prefer. Once you have an idea of where and how long you wish to trek, we will provide detailed information and quote a price.

Sherpa Staff : The Sherpas of the Everest, Khumbu and Rolwaling regions have traditionally been the best mountain guides and porters.

Trade indeed, created Kathmandu for at least a thousand years it controlled the most important caravan route between Tibet and India - and trade has always funded its Newar artisans. Little wonder, perhaps that Kathmandu has so deftly embraced the tourist business.
