First Environmental Trekking (P) Ltd.

Some helpful information to assist you with planning your trek:

Consider the experience and fitness level of the members of your group carefully. We can advise you about difficulties & challenges relating to each route as well as the scenic & cultural highlights of the relative regions.

Give yourself enough time to allow some flexibility in your schedule for acclimatization, side-trip or extra rest day, if needed.

Remember Nepal may not be just like it is at "home". That is one of the reasons most people come here. Savour the differences and enjoy. Our staffs are knowledgeable and happy to answer your questions about Nepali culture and customs.

Pack carefully. Ask about seasonal changes and temperature. Be prepared for cold nights at high altitudes at any time of the year. Layered clothing works better than one heavy layer and gives more flexibility for warm mid-day. Good and comfortable boots will be your best friend.Try to keep your daypack as light as possible. Maximum weight – 8 to 10 Kg. is suggested.

Each porter carries 20-25 Kg. Although dokos (wicker carrying baskets) are more picturesque, we now recommend our clients put their personal gear in a backpack with a good hip-belt to ease the porter’s load. Packing gear for two clients plus their personal equipment is a usual practice. (An alternative to the above suggestion is the use of a zippered duffel bag).

Respect the environment. The advice "Take nothing but photographs. Leave nothing but footprints" remains true. Nepal has suffered environmentally in the past. Help us to change the trend and preserve our beautiful land.
