Upper Mustang Trek

Upper Mustang Trek

The Upper Mustang was a demilitarized area until 1992, making it one of the best preserved regions in the world where a large part of the population still speaks traditional Tibetan languages. Tibetan culture has been preserved due to the region’s relative isolation from the outside world.

The Upper Mustang averages 4000 meters in elevation, but some of its parts are as high as 5000 meters. The local name for this region is Lo, which means “south” and refers to the fact that Upper Mustang is south of the Himalayas.

Gosainkund and Helambu Trek

gosainkund

The Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek is a combination of three popular trekking routes in Nepal, namely the Langtang Valley Trek, the Gosainkunda Trek and the Helambu Trek. You can either do one of these treks individually or combine them all together to make one of the best treks in the Himalayas.

The trek starts in Kathmandu after exploring the city, but you can also fly directly to Syabru Besi if you want to save some time. From there you will trek up to the Langtang Valley and then to Gosainkunda Lake, which is a sacred lake for both Hindus and Buddhists. 

After taking a dip in the lake (not recommended as it is frozen most of the year), continue to Helambu before heading back to Kathmandu.

The Langtang region was one of the hardest hit areas during the 2015 earthquake. So if you are planning this trek, please keep in mind that it may not be as well equipped as other treks. 

However, this is also a reason why this is one of the best treks in Nepal, as tourism has decreased significantly after the earthquake, giving you the opportunity to experience Nepal.

Tsum Valley Trek

Tsum Valley

Tsum Valley Trek is a paradise for hikers. Located in the Manaslu region on the north side of Gorkha district, it is one of the most untouched and remote valleys in Nepal. The word ‘Tsum’ comes from the two words ‘Tsombo’ which means alive and ‘Tsumbo’ which means sharp.

The entire Tsum Valley is a sacred pilgrimage site in the Himalayas, located in the northern part of Gorkha, Nepal. The Tsum Valley is rich in ancient art, religion, culture and traditions. 

One of the most interesting things about this region is that it was closed to trekkers until 2008, when the government opened it for tourist purposes.

This beautiful valley has remained untouched by modern civilization until today. People here still live in historical times and practice ancient Tibetan traditions and culture. 

People here still follow the system of polyandry in marriage, where a woman can take more than one husband if her first husband does not have a son.

The inhabitants of this area are mostly Tibetans who have their own language, religion, culture and way of life which is different from other Nepalese. They follow Buddhism and believe that Milarepa meditated in the caves of this remote valley.

Upper Dolpo Trek

Ancient Bon Stupa in Dolpo, Nepal

Upper Dolpo Trek is the most remote region in Nepal. This trek takes you through the pristine landscape and Himalayan valleys on the west side of Dhaulagiri, a vast area of untouched wilderness and rich Tibetan culture. Upper Dolpo is an extremely isolated area and was closed to foreigners until 1990.

The starting point of this trek is in Juphal. The trail passes through a beautiful pine and juniper forest; several monasteries, chortens and mani walls can also be seen on this hike.

Best Time To Trekking In Nepal

Himalaya mountains and old stone cabin near Pokhara in Nepal

The trekking season in Nepal is divided into four main seasons. Each season has its own charm and beauty. The best time to trek in the Nepalese Himalayas depends on the type of trip you have chosen, as well as your interests, likes and dislikes.

Trekking in spring (March-April-May)

Spring in Nepal is the season of new life and new beginnings. At this time of year, countless flowers bloom all over the country. Rhododendrons, the national flower of Nepal, are in full bloom in spring.

While most people associate spring with trekking in the mountains of Nepal, it is also a great time of year to explore the Terai region or go white water rafting.

Rainfall is more common in March and April, but is usually short-lived and does not affect your trekking very much.

Spring in Nepal is rightly known as the “rhododendron season” as the whole country is then covered with red rhododendron flowers.

If you are planning a trip to Nepal at this time of year, you should fly into Kathmandu between February 26 and March 10 and depart no later than April 20 to ensure that you have reasonably clear skies for your trekking adventure.

Trekking In Rainy season ( June-July-August)

khaptad national park in rainy season

The monsoon has arrived in Nepal. The rains have started, and the heavens are open for a few hours every day.

It is an exciting time to be in Nepal as the countryside comes to life after four months of sweltering heat and drought.

Mystery and magic hangs in the air. Vibrant colors abound everywhere. The hills are lush; the lakes and rivers are full; and a cool breeze blows across the valleys.

It is a great time to go trekking in the rain, provided you stay safe, dry, and warm.

  • The rainy season has its advantages:
  • No dust or mudslides on the trails
  • You can witness colors of nature at their best
  • You will see lush green forests
  • You will see rice fields turning gold

Trekking in autumn (September-October)

Mount Pumori In Autmn

Trekking in autumn is one of the best trekking seasons in Nepal. When the autumn season starts, you will feel the temperature change as it becomes cooler than spring but warmer than winter.

This time of year offers clear views of mountain peaks such as Annapurna and Everest, with a low chance of rain in September to mid-October.

Trekking in autumn is suitable for those who want to enjoy the cool weather while visiting popular places like Kathmandu Valley, Pokhara, Lumbini, etc. Moreover, in this season you can choose between different trekking tours that offer different routes with different duration.

Winter Trekking In Nepal winter(November-December-January-February)

Gokyi Ri-Renjo In Winter

It is recommended that you have a basic level of physical fitness to undertake a trek in Nepal during the winter season. You should be able to walk for 6-7 hours a day. While the actual altitudes you will reach are not extremely high, the weather can make it very difficult.

The best time to trek in Nepal during winter is from November to February. The days are usually clear and sunny with crisp mountain air but the nights can be bitterly cold.

During this time, many of the lodges will be closed and there can be snow on the trails making walking slower than usual. Because of this, we recommend that you walk at your own pace and make sure you are comfortable at all times.

The most popular routes for trekking in Nepal during winter months are: Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Langtang Valley Trek and the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

Packing-List-for-Trekking-in-Nepal

Packing Gear for trekking in Nepal

If you plan to travel with a group, you can hire porters. They will carry the equipment and luggage for you. However, if you are traveling alone, you will have to carry the weight of everything on your back. 

You need to be careful about what gear you carry because if you carry extra things on your back, it will be difficult for you to hike comfortably.

Here is a list of equipment that is essential for trekking in Nepal:

  • Backpack (internal frame)
  • Camera
  • Sleeping bag (suitable for at least 0 degrees Celsius)
  • Sleeping pad
  • Trekking shoes
  • Sandals or camping shoes for the evening in the lodges and for use in your sleeping bag at night
  • Down jacket or synthetic insulated jacket
  • Waterproof shell jacket
  • Fleece jacket
  • Hiking shirt(s) with long sleeves, preferably with some UV protection (synthetic or wool; avoid cotton)
  • Trekking pants or convertible hiking pants (removable legs) (avoid jeans/denim)
  • Shorts (for lower altitudes only)
  • Underwear and socks (at least two pairs, preferably more; synthetic or wool only, no cotton)
  • Hat/hat to keep your head warm during trekking on cold evenings and nights (should also be worn at night in sleeping bag)
  • Sunglasses with 100 percent UV protection and leash/string to protect them from loss and breakage if they fall off on the trail
  • Headlamp with extra batteries and bulbs.

Note: Please bring a separate daypack or small backpack to carry on the trek during the day to carry water, extra layers of clothing, camera, etc. The porters will carry your main backpack.

The right gear can make all the difference to your trekking experience in Nepal. The wrong gear, on the other hand, can make the experience miserable!

When packing for your trekking adventure, consider both the time of year and the duration of your trek. For example, if you are hiking in the winter, you’ll need warmer clothing and gear than you would in the summer.

 If you are doing a shorter hike of a few days, you will not need as much as you would for a month-long hike.

We advise you to bring everything you need for your trip to Nepal. However, if you forget something or want to buy certain things when you arrive, there are many outdoor stores in Kathmandu that offer all kinds of camping, trekking and climbing equipment at reasonable prices.

What kind of food to expect during trekking in Nepal?

Traditional Nepalese dish Dal Bhat

Meals on the treks are provided by teahouses where you will stay along the way.

You have set the date for your trek in the Himalayas in Nepal. Where will you go? You have already decided everything and now you are wondering what the food will be like during your trip. If you booked a package tour with a trekking agency in Nepal, they should give you all the information about the food that is included in their offer. 

The menu depends on the region where you are hiking. The higher the region, the smaller the selection.

During your trek in Nepal, you will receive 3 meals per day. Breakfast and dinner are usually served at your trekking lodge, while lunch is served on the trail. In remote areas, dinner is often the most important meal of the day.

Breakfast 

Breakfast is usually eggs or oatmeal with tea or coffee and toast. Lunch is a sandwich or a simple meal like noodles, pasta or dhal bhat (rice, lentil soup and vegetables).

Lunch

Bread or rice with vegetables

Dinner

Dinner is fried rice or noodles with vegetables, soups, potatoes, chickpeasand beans. Potatoes, spinach and beans are local products that are fresh and delicious.

Drinks

Drinks include hot lemon, chai (tea), coffee and hot chocolate. Fruit juices are available everywhere, but they are not fresh.

In the tea houses along the way you will find a wide selection of cookies, chocolate bars and other snacks.

If you want to eat meat on your trek, chicken is always available for lunch or dinner, but you can order it with some advance notice.

Yak steak is another option, but it is more expensive than chicken and lamb. In high altitude regions, yak meat is eaten by both locals and tourists and is very tasty. However, yak steak is very tough, so you need to chew it well to digest it!

Tea houses are a network of small lodges scattered along popular trekking routes. They offer food, lodging, and even shower facilities, but do not expect them to meet Western standards, as they are very basic.

The rooms are simply furnished with blankets or sleeping bags and a pillow, flashlight, water bottle and toilet paper are very useful.

Most rooms have their own bathroom, but it is quite basic and often has only cold water. A bucket of hot water costs about 200 rupees if you want to wash yourself or your clothes.

Some teahouses offer internet access (usually with a slow connection) at high fees of 50 to 100 rupees per hour.

Power outlets can be hard to find and you will need to ask for them when booking your room. Electricity is fluctuating, so do not rely on it too much. Make sure your devices are fully charged before you go to bed, as the power can be cut off during the night.

Showers cost between 150 and 300 rupees depending on the region, but they usually only use cold water. In some parts of the Annapurna Circuit there are small hot showers that cost extra, around 400 rupees, but this is a luxury that most trekkers cannot afford.

Accommodation In Homestay

 

Nepal is a beautiful country with a rich cultural heritage. The scenic beauty of the country attracts many tourists from all over the world. Many tourists prefer to stay in a homestay rather than a hotel when visiting Nepal.

The idea of staying in a stranger’s house may seem strange to many people. But if you are looking for an authentic Nepali experience, then staying in a home in Nepal is just what you need.

Accommodation in a house in Nepal is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life. You will enjoy being treated like a member of the family and you will learn more about daily life in Nepal when you stay in a local house.

People in Nepal are very friendly and they treat their guests like gods. Therefore, they make sure that their guests have a great time while they are there. They also offer traditional Nepalese food to their guests, which is served on special occasions. This makes accommodation in Nepal a memorable experience for all tourists visiting this beautiful country.

Homestay accommodation in Nepal is available in various parts of the country including the capital Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini as well as on many popular trekking routes.

Staying In The Mountain lodges”?

Mountain lodges are simple, but they serve you good food and have clean rooms. These are the best options for those who like to stay in a clean and quiet place.

The typical mountain hut is run by a local family or sometimes by a group of people from the same village. They offer basic accommodation, running water, electricity and home cooked meals at a reasonable price.

The rooms are quite basic and consist only of two beds, pillows and blankets or comforters, depending on the altitude. Many of them are equipped with electric light, sockets and hot water in the washroom.

Toilets and showers are usually shared by guests, although some lodges have private bathrooms.

Food is usually included in the price and a typical meal consists of soup, bread, rice or noodles with vegetables or meat (sometimes both), followed by fruit.

Due to the location of the lodges, all food must be brought to the village by mule or yak train, which makes it more expensive.

Local guides will often take guests to their family’s lodge if they are paid a commission, but if you are traveling on your own, you can just ask around until you find something that looks okay.

Luxury Lodges In Nepal

Luxury lodges in Nepal are now part of the travel scene, offering a new type of accommodation for those who want to experience trekking but do not want to sacrifice comfort.

The first luxury trekking lodges opened in the Annapurna region in 1998 and have since spread to other regions.

Most luxury trekking lodges in Nepal offer:

Twin rooms with private bathrooms, hot showers, toiletries, clean comfortable beds with comforters and pillows, central heating, table and chairs, down jackets for the evening.

The food is good, healthy and plentiful. Breakfast is buffet, lunch is either buffet or choice of menu, and evening meals are also from the menu. Fresh vegetables are usually available at least three times a week. Beer, wine and spirits are also available (at an additional cost).

How to prepare for trekking in Nepal?

In most cases, trekking in Nepal is a physically demanding activity. However, you can enjoy the adventure even if you are not physically fit.

To make sure that your trip will be fantastic and memorable, it is ideal if you do some sports or fitness training before you leave.

This will help you stay fit and healthy during your trip.

Here are some of the ways you can prepare for a Nepal trekking trip..

Prepare Yourself Mentally For a Trekking Trip In Nepal

Here are some reasons why mental preparation is just as important as physical preparation:

The way you perceive your surroundings affects your overall experience. If you have a negative perception, there is a good chance you will have a bad experience.

If you have a positive perception, there is a good chance you will enjoy your hike.

But make sure your perception is not too good either – it will lead you to expect more than is actually there, and more importantly, disappoint you.

Remember: it’s all about finding a balance between reality and expectation.

Do Not Leave Home For  Trek Without Training

One of the most important thing you need to do before your trekking in Nepal is training. It doesn’t matter how physically fit you are, physical conditioning is necessary when you prepare for a trekking in Nepal.

The first and foremost thing is to rise early and have morning walk or jogging. Try to do it regularly and increase the time span of doing morning walk or jogging.

While you prepare for your trekking in Nepal, you need to make sure that you don’t overdo regular exercises as it can cause pain and injuries.

So, it is better not to go for heavy weightlifting or other hard exercises until two weeks before the trip.

The best way to train yourself for trekking in Nepal is walking. You can start by walking at least three miles each day and gradually increasing up to five miles per day.

If possible try climbing up and down a flight of stairs at least two or three times each day. This exercise has a great impact on your heart and lungs as well as the leg muscles.

Another best way of training yourself for trekking in Nepal is hiking uphill with a backpack loaded with sandbags and a full water bottle.

Get A Good Pair of Shoes

When trekking, your feet need support. The better cushioned and supported they are, the longer you can walk without getting tired.

However, there is no one perfect shoe for trekking in Nepal. To choose the right shoes, you need to consider your own feet and preferences.

 In a nutshell:

  • For short trekking tours (up to 5 days), hiking shoes are recommended as they provide more support;
  • For long treks (7+ days) or if you have apartment feet, light hiking shoes are best;
  • If you are short on money or do not have time to break in your new shoes before hiking, durable trail running shoes are a good alternative;
  • Some people prefer running shoes for light day hikes and short treks up to 2 days. They are lightweight but less durable and offer less ankle support;
  • Avoid wearing sandals if you are doing a multi-day trek in high altitude areas of Nepal. They offer very little protection from the elements and can cause injury due to loose stones on the trails.

Increase Your Cardiovascular Fitness

Before starting a new exercise program, consult your doctor and let him know about your plans. He or she can advise you on your personal health status and whether you need to take extra precautions or avoid certain exercises.

Endurance training is a great way to get fit, but it’s not the only thing you should focus on. You should also include strength training for your upper and lower body in your exercise program.

This will help your overall balance and core strength, which will keep you from getting injured when hiking at high altitudes.

If you are a beginner, start slowly with just 5 minutes of endurance training such as walking or jogging in place each day.

Over time, increase to at least 30 minutes per session. This way, it will not take you as long to recover and get back in shape, even if you have to take a trekking day due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. bad weather)!

Frequently Asked Questions About Trekking In Nepal

Tsum Valley

We can tell you everything about trekking in Nepal.

Everyone knows that Nepal is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world. And indeed, the country has some of the best trekking trails in the world. If you are reading this article, you are surely planning to trek here.

However, we receive many questions about trekking in Nepal. So, below we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you with your plans:

Is Trekking In Nepal Safe?

Before going on a trekking tour in the Himalayas, many people wonder whether Nepal is safe or not. I would like to answer this question by giving you detailed information about how safe it is to trek in Nepal and what precautions you should take before heading into the mountains of this small country.

Let us find out! Is trekking in Nepal safe?

The short answer to this question is YES! Trekking in Nepal is absolutely safe. In fact, it is one of the safest countries for travel and tourism. It has been selected as one of the 10 safest countries for travelers in 2019.

Yes, there are certain places that may not be as safe, but those are clearly mentioned in every itinerary we offer. We have carefully crafted our trips with your safety and security as our priority.

So what makes trekking in Nepal safe?

The locals are very friendly and open-minded towards foreigners. Therefore, their top priority is to make you feel comfortable and welcome at all times. This means that you do not have to worry about anything happening to you while exploring this beautiful country.

Nepal has been a country without any political unrest since 2006.

Do I Need Visa To Enter Nepal?

Yes, you will need a visa to enter Nepal. You can obtain a tourist visa upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu or at the Kakadvitta, Birgunj, Bhairahawa, Nepalgunj and Kodari border crossings.

A tourist visa can also be obtained from the nearest Nepalese embassy or consulate before departure to Nepal.

How difficult is trekking in Nepal?

It is not easy to trek in the Himalayas, but it is not impossible for most people. As long as you are fit and healthy, you should be fine. I would say that it is not difficult to trek in Nepal, but there is a difference between easy and difficult.

The difficulty of a trek depends mainly on the altitude of the trek. The higher you get, the steeper and therefore more difficult it becomes. You can choose a trek that suits your physical fitness level. You can also find treks that do not require any prior knowledge or technical skills.

The other aspect that determines the difficulty of a hike is its duration. If you decide to go for a long hike, you should be prepared for more strenuous hikes. However, if you are physically fit, these hikes should not be a big problem for you.

Trekking in Nepal is not easy, but it is not difficult either. It has its challenges like any other form of travel, but it is worth persevering for the rewards at the end of each day and your final destination.

What Is Tea House Trekking In Nepal?

Teahouse trekking or lodge-to-lodge trekking has become increasingly popular in Nepal in recent years.

Instead of carrying all your gear and food on your back like traditional camping treks, you can now enjoy the mountains with the added comfort of a warm bed each night.

You stay in teahouses or lodges and carry only a daypack. This means you have more energy to take in the culture and breathtaking scenery around you.

The teahouses are simply furnished with a twin bedded room, a western style toilet and hot water for showers for an additional fee. You can choose between Nepalese food or Western dishes such as pasta and pizza.

The teahouse trekking is perfect for those who want to trek independently and at their own pace without a guide or porters.

Some people call it freedom trekking because you do not have to hire a guide or porter or book in advance, and there are many routes with well-marked signs and maps that you can buy at the teahouses along the way.

Nepal offers a range of easy, moderate and challenging teahouse treks, from short half-day trips to multi-day treks that can last from 3 days to 20+ days, depending on your fitness level.

Why Do I Need A Trekking Guide In Nepal?

When you trek in Nepal, you want to get in touch with nature, escape the hustle and bustle of the city, explore new places, meet new people, and experience a different culture.

The last thing you want is to worry about finding your way or if there is a better place to stay.

Trekking in Nepal is an experience that many people dream of. But if you are not prepared, your dream could turn into a nightmare.

It is best to take a guide before trekking in Nepal. This is because most trekkers do not have the knowledge or experience to safely navigate the mountains.

A guide can help you avoid getting lost, find the best routes and places to stay, and make sure you are never alone when you are away from civilization for days at a time.

Is It Possible To Trek In Nepal In Winter?

The answer is yes, you can go for trekking in Nepal even in winter. Annapurna Base Camp, Everest Base Camp, Poonhil, Mardi Himal and Langtang region are three of the best options.

The weather conditions will not be as good as in spring and autumn, but if you are lucky and catch a clear weather period, you can enjoy amazing views of the mountains.

During these months, temperatures on these hikes can drop below freezing at night, so it is important to have proper equipment and preparation for this opportunity.

If you are not an experienced hiker, you should take an experienced guide or porter who knows the area well enough to deal with unexpected situations that may arise.

Can I go Trekking Alone In Nepal?

Yes, you can trek alone in Nepal. Trekking alone is not a big problem on the popular routes where you will find tea houses and people.

You just need to take care of yourself and your belongings. You need to take care of yourself and your belongings.

The best way to trek alone in Nepal is to choose the right route for you so that you can enjoy and adapt to the environment.

Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit, Jomsom Muktinath, Poon Hill Ghorepani Circuit and Langtang treks are some of the best treks for solo trekkers in Nepal.

However, if you plan to go on these walks alone, you need to take some precautions:

  • Before starting your hike, make sure you have all the necessary permits and documents with you.
  • Always carry a first aid kit and learn how to use it. You can also take a first aid course before you start your hike.
  • Always keep your friends, family or relatives informed of your whereabouts. Let them know when you will be going offline. Check in with them every day or week if possible and let them know you are doing well.
  • Before you start your hike, take out a good insurance policy that will help you in case of emergency situations during your hike.

How Long Do I Have To Trek Every Day In Nepal?

Trekking in Nepal offers a variety of terrains. But elevation is one of the main factors that can affect the distance you will walk each day. The higher you go, the slower you will walk.

If you are trekking at lower elevations up to 3000m, you can easily walk 6-8 hours per day. However, if your trek takes you above 3000 meters, do not hurry and take steady steps.

For example, when I was trekking Manaslu Circuit, we walked on average 5-6 hours per day and sometimes we were even walking 7-8 hours per day.

But in Everest Base Camp trekking, we had to cover 5-6 hours per day and sometimes we extended our walking time to 7-8 hours per day because we took some rest days in between.

But it also depends on the physical fitness of the individual. Some people can walk longer distances than others, so there may be some variation in the distances.

As a general rule of thumb, try not to walk for more than 8 hours per day, because at higher elevations it can be really difficult for many people to walk for more than 8 hours per day.

How To Stay Healthy And Fit During Trek?

Even if your primary goal is trekking in Nepal, you need to take great care of your health. This is because Nepal is under-devolped and poor country. The environment there is not as favorable as in other developed countries.

The living standard of people there is also different from ours. So you should always be vigilant to protect your health there. Before you leave for Nepal, make sure that you have completed all the required vaccinations for trekking in Nepal.

First, take an adequate amount of water with you and drink only filtered water. Otherwise, you may experience serious health problems such as diarrhea and vomiting. You can use iodine tablets or a filter for this purpose.

Avoid raw vegetables and fruits as much as possible while trekking in Nepal. If you do want to ingest some, wash it thoroughly before eating. Since many people do not know how to wash properly, it is better to avoid these things as much as possible.

Do not think of drinking alcohol during your trekking days in Nepal as it will affect your body badly and you will not be able to continue your trek smoothly and properly.

Do I need A Trekking Permit To Go Trekking In Nepal?

If you plan to trek in more restricted areas of Nepal, such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Sanctuary, or Upper Mustang Valley, you will need a permit.

This is to protect the areas for both locals and tourists and to keep them free from excessive tourism. These permits are very easy to apply for and usually only cost about 30 USD.

All trekkers must have a TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) card, which you can easily pick up from the Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu or Pokhara.

The TIMS card costs $10 USD at the Nepal Tourism Board offices, but is free of charge if you get it through a tour operator or travel agent. You will need to bring two passport photos and your passport to get the card, which will be valid for one year.

All hikers must have their permits checked by officials at checkpoints along the trails, so do not forget to bring them (and your passport). You are allowed to hike without a guide, but if you are traveling alone, you may need to join an organized group.

What is the Nepal Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS)?

The Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) is a database that helps track and manage incoming visitors to protected areas, national parks, and wildlife sanctuaries in Nepal.

This system was developed by the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and the Immigration Department to maintain an online database of tourists visiting protected areas.

The TIMS registration process involves filling out a TIMS application form and paying a fee to obtain the card, which is valid for one year.

TIMS registration involves filling out a TIMS application form and paying a fee to receive the card, which is valid for one year. For foreigners, the fee is NRs. 2,000, while SAARC nationals NRs. 1,000. The card is issued on the spot, but if you are hiking in a group, it can take up to 24 hours.

What Are Some of Best Places To Trek In Nepal?

The best places to trek in Nepal depend on the season, your duration and your fitness level.

For someone looking for a short trek, the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a good option. It is only a week long and offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna range, including Mount Macchapucchre (Fishtail) and Dhaulagiri.

If you want a more challenging trek, you might consider Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp. These tours take two weeks each, but are definitely worth it.

You can see Everest or Machhapuchhre up close and cross high altitude passes. On these hikes you can also see the deepest gorge in the world (Kaligandaki Gorge).

How Expensive Is Trekking In Nepal?

In general, trekking in Nepal is relatively inexpensive. The cost of trekking depends on the duration and difficulty of the trek. A particular route can be as cheap as $50 per day or as expensive as $300 per day.

However, most people spend between $100 and $200 per day when trekking in Nepal. The biggest expenses during trekking are food and lodging.

Accommodation and food costs in Nepal:

When you are trekking, you will stay in teahouses or lodges. The price of the teahouse depends on how popular the particular teahouse is and how far it is from the trailhead. In some places there may be no roads at all, so you will have to pay more for accommodation.

On average, expect to pay about $5 for a room in a twin share. You will also have to pay for your meals separately, which can cost you about $5 to $10 per meal.

You should also factor in tips for porters and guides if you have hired them. This will be about 10% of the total bill.

Is Nepal A Safe Trekking Destination For Solo Female Travelers?

There are many female travelers in Nepal, including women traveling alone. Although the country is not generally considered unsafe for women traveling alone, it is a good idea to take extra precautions when you are in Nepal.

Here are some tips on how to travel safely in Nepal as a woman:

  • Dress conservatively
  • Do not walk around alone at night
  • Ask your hotel staff for advice on how to stay safe
  • Consider joining group tours
  • If you are traveling alone, it is a good idea to carry a whistle or personal alarm.
  • Do not drink alcohol alone (or with someone you do not know well)

Do I Need To Hire a Porter to Carry my load ?

Trekking in Nepal is a great experience, but not everyone can trek alone. Some people need a porter or guide for their trek.

So, do you need a porter for your trekking? Well, the answer depends on what kind of trekker you are.

If you are an independent trekker who is able to carry your own backpack and walk independently, then of course you do not need a porter.

However, if you are not able to carry your backpack or have health problems, then I think it is good for you to hire a porter.

Some travelers may think that hiring a porter means being lazy, but that is not true. Hiring porters helps the locals make money from tourism, so it is always good to hire them when they are needed.

Is Internet Available During Trekking in Nepal?

Yes, internet access is available while trekking in Nepal, but it may be limited. While most of the trekking routes are quite remote, a mobile network can be available at a few places where you can access the internet. Some trekkers also carry a portable modem and dongle to access the internet.

However, do not expect that you will have an internet connection throughout your whole trek.

How Much Should I Tip The Guides and Porters In Nepal?

A guide and a porter are among the human resources available in Nepal. They provide trekking and tour related services to the tourists. They guide you to the places, carry your luggage and facilitate your journey. Therefore, it is important that they are rewarded for their services.

So how much should I tip the guides and porters in Nepal?

When we talk about tipping in Nepal, there is no set amount that you have to give as a reward. It is entirely up to you how much you can give them.

Nowadays, most of the travel agencies in Kathmandu pay their guides and porters more than enough money as per the government standards.

So, if you book your Nepal trekking package through the particular travel agency where they work as guides or porters, you do not need to tip guides and porters. If not, then you should definitely give them a reward so that they can also earn something from their services.
