TREKKING IN NEPAL
In general, the best trekking season extends from early October
until the end of May. December till February can be very cold and
higher altitudes get snow at this time, making some passes above
5000 meters quite un-crossable.
It is extremely important to be in good physical shape before you
embark on a trek. The more physically fit you are, the more easily
your body will adapt to hiking in the Himalayas. Resistance to cold
and sickness is also increased.
Whatever the trek and whatever the season, light clothing for warm
weather is needed since even at high altitudes days are warm when
the sun is out. You will need adequate warm clothing if you spend
much time above 3000 m in winter.
A list of necessary items will be emailed/faxed to you on
All treks are planned to ensure full passenger safety and each day's
schedule leaves you with time to explore and enjoy the trek, relax
and to acclimatize.
