Read the following information which makes you easy to book your trekking in Nepal.
Trekking is an adventure activity involving multiday walk on village trails, National Park trails and climber’s trails often on reasonably steep terrain and snow at higher altitudes often crossing high passes in the range of 5500m/18000ft.
It depends on the location and choice of trekkers. Both difficult as well as easy treks are available.
In Nepal children below 18 years of age are required to trek accompanied by their parent or guardian.
Depending on trekking area you may require a special trekking permit while other areas would require only conservation/national park entry permit and Trekking Information Management System (TIMS) Card.
In General treks vary in duration from 2 to 4 weeks;average one would trek between 4 to 6 hours per day.
On most established treks bottled water is ubiquitously availableas well as locally purified drinking water is available in many villages along the trek. Otherwise, you can use boiled water supplied by the teahouse or camping crew.
On popular trails we will stay in lodges and guest houses and the meals will be cooked for you withcontinental menu meals often available as well as soups and noodles and rice dishes; on some routes there will be a limited choice and on some more remote routes only local Nepal Dal Bhat and curry or instant noodle soups will be available.
It all depends on the area with most of the trekking routeshaving local VHF Phones; increasingly more places get mobile coverage of varied capacity; in remote communication is not available or very limited so the only option would be a satellite phone
You need comfortable trekking shoes preferably with Gore-Tex style lining for ultimate comfort and thick vibratim soles to have comfortable walk on rocky paths
At high altitude your cardio-pulmonary system is affected by low oxygen density and you can suffer from general breathing difficulties to Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) as well as your skin is susceptible to sunburn if not protected by cloths or sunblock. The AMS is preventable through appropriate trekking pace and undertaking acclimatization.
You need to obtain travel insurance before you arrive to Kathmandu. Your insurance should cover rescue insurance and it should allow the expense of helicopter supported medevac. Nowadays such policies are readily available through many airfare booking agents. Try ihi.com if you cannot find your insurance.
We ensure travel safety for all our guests’ women or men travelling with our company. Nepal is generally very safe and welcoming to foreign tourists. We have very good relationships with lodges we use and our guides aware all the time of whereabouts of every guest on the trek. Our groups are small and we ensure continues visual contact.
On the trek we provide all accommodation, food and we cover park fees, so you need to take only small amount of money to purchase water, small snack and tea outside meals, localsouvenirs, tips or donations to monasteries if you wish to donate small change. $20 per day should be sufficient to cover such expenses
Majority of trekking is done with lodge/guesthouse accommodation unless you prearranged camping based trip. There are very few trekking areas where lodge accommodation is unavailable and we will offer there a tent accommodation only.
Teahouse trekking is a trekking where your accommodation and meal are arranged in a local lodge/house with full board services.
Camping trekking is a trekking where we provideyou with tent accommodation and full board with meals to be cooked by professional trekking cook in a mobile camp equipped with akitchen and with adequate support staff of kitchen helpers, guides and porters.
It depends on trekking route and altitude; typically a trekking porter would carry load of 15kg to 25kgand camping porter would carry load up to 40kg.
In Nepal it is not customaryto tip but porters and guides would expect and appreciate a small tip. Your tip will go long way to help their families.
Trekking is for you and everyone who is patient and physically fit and enjoys outdoors.
You should have a general good level of physical fitness, general hiking experience, do not have any chronic or acute issues with your leg functions andbementally comfortable withmulti-day hikes, than you are ready for trekking.
In principle if you have trekking experience anywhere in the world and you are currently fit for trekking, there is nothing to stop you from Himalayan trekking in Nepal. You just need to increase your cardiovascular capacityto be able to cope with high elevation, where the oxygen density is much lower.
Post-monsoon period from September to December and pre-monsoon season from February to May are the best period for trekking in Nepal. In winter, December till February, at high elevation is very cold and heavy snowfalls may impede crossing of high passes but trekking in low elevations below 3000m is accessible all year round. In summer, June till August is a monsoon season and trekking is very wet, however in rain shadow areas such as Upper Mustang trekking in monsoon season is feasible and pleasant.
It all depends on the time and altitude of your trek. You may require Down Jacket, warm fleece jacket, warm thermal underwear, trekking pants and shorts, sleeping bag, trekking boots and a backpack, camera and your personal medication. Consult lists of cloth and equipment on our website as a guide and use a common sense to pack enough but not too much at the same time.
We highly recommend having a guide with you. You will travel in wilderness areas and at high elevations so from safety aspect you should not be alone. Travelling through villages there are many trails and if you took wrong path accidently it may be difficult to communicate with locals to get back on the right path or to secure food or accommodation. They will be unlikely to speak English
You will be taken immediately to the lower altitude first and will be provided first aid as the immediate treatment and then if necessary the guide will call the rescue helicopter tofly you down to Kathmandu or Pokharausing your rescue insurance.
Anywhere from 5km to 15km depending on condition of trekking trail and the altitude of the trekking route.

We had a lovely experience with Snowy Horizon Treks in Nepal. We did Namche bazaar and Everest View Pony trek with them. We were extremely happy with your service before, after and during the trek. Big thank you to Mr. Bhandari our awesome trekking guide who looked after us so well and tended to our every need, we have no hesitation in recommending your company to my family, friends and any Visitor. The whole team was fantastic, so helpful and service minded. Due to bad weather and our small time we chatter a helicopter from Lukla to Kathmandu to catch our next day flight but Mr. Bhandari maintain all the things smoothly and so quickly we are really impressed with his personality. The photos we took during the trip are spectacular and the experience is something I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you for making our trip so wonderful and we look forward to visiting Nepal again in the near future. I should also mention that the cultural activities organized by Snowy Horizon Treks. We were also very interesting and for anyone thinking about going to have any trip in Nepal we have to say that you should definitely do it, it is a once in a lifetime trip that you will never forget.
We were in Nepal for a conference and wanted to organise a quick helicopter trip to Everest base camp. Bhandari managed to organise a heli trip with a very experienced heli crew up to Lukla, Hotel Everest View and to an advanced point near base camp. It was surreal having a cooked breakfast with an amazngly clear view of Everest and the surrounding peaks. It was a great experience for us and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. Bhandari also organised a quick half day tour to fill in our day in Kathmandu.
This was not one of his firms usual treks but he successfully met and exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.
