Trekking Information

Trekking in the Himalayas requires a different level of preparation than many other regular trips outdoors.

Start early

International flight bookings and inoculations need attention several months before departure, especially if you're flying in the peak months of October and November. It is best to get into physical shape a couple of months before your trek. Do not forget to buy an adequate insurance cover.

Whent to trek

It is possible to trek in Nepal throughout the year - depending on where you want to go. The most popular trekking seasons are Spring (March to May) and Autumn (October to December). These months are really good for trekking but also attract the crowds. There is effect of monsoon during June to mid-September but it is still excellent if you do not mind trekking with some raining gears on - the lush green scenery and few trekkers in the area are what some people really do like. Winter (January to February) is also nice for all regular treks except that go across high passes. If you want our suggestion, please ask.

Lodge or Camp

When you are trekking, often you have choice for either - a Teshouse trek which means eating and staying in local lodges, or a Camping Trek which means staying in tents, going with a large crew with all supplies and food supplied by a staff cook. In many areas where there are good lodges available such as Everest, Annapurna and Langtang, you can do either teahouse trek or camping trek. If you plan to go off the beaten track, in some places such as Dolpo and Kanchenjungha, camping is the only option.


Make sure you have proper equipment when you are going on a trek. A detailed list of trekking equipment is available on our website. You can buy them at home or in Kathmandu. It is also possible to rent these equipments from Kathmandu. There are a lot of equipment shops where you get plenty of choice with product quality and price.


Many areas require entry permits. If your trek goes through National Parks or Conservation Areas, then there will be entry fees. TIMS permit is a must for almost every regular trek in Nepal. Special Trekking Permit will be required for controlled/restricted trekking areas. Climbing Permit is required if you plan to climb trekking peaks. Expedition Permit will be required for mountaineering.
