Everest Base Camp Trek

Trekking in Nepal

Since Nepal has few roads, access to the fascinating grandeur of its interior remains difficult. Life in the hills has remained untouched by time and around it beat the heart of this country rich in its cultural heritage. To explore this land flanked by the most majestic mountains on earth, one must trek or hike.

Types of Treks
Tea House: The tea-houses are locally run lodges or guest houses and are available in the popular Annapurna, Everest and Langtang trekking regions. The standards vary enormously from a simple room with outdoor toilets to small hotels with hot water and private rooms. Tea-house trek is generally less expensive than camping but the routes are restricted to the popular trekking areas only.
Camping: With camping treks, you can explore any part of Nepal and go to some very remote and delightful places. You can venture 'off the beaten path' which for many is the best trekking experience. Apart from sleeping under a canvas, services we provide are on par or of a higher standard to that at some of the tea-houses.

Typical day on trek starts around dawn when the guide wakes you with a 'wake up' cup of tea/coffee. This is followed by a bowl of hot water for washing. After packing the kit, a hot breakfast is served and most are on their way by 8am. Morning walk lasts around 3 to 4 hours and the walk will be at your pace. There will be ample time to take in the scenery. Cooked lunch is normally provided at noon. Afternoon walk is around 2 to 3 hours. The overnight camp is reached by mid/late afternoon. Tea is served while the tents are pitched and the evening meal is ready by 7pm. There could be evening entertainment by the locals in some of the areas.

Trek Grades - Trekking is mostly on well maintained trails but there are routes over rugged terrain. All of our treks are graded as:
* Easy to Moderate: A trek up to about 3000m over well defined tracks. Plenty of ups and downs but those leading an active life style can easily manage it without any problems.
* Moderate: A trek reaching up to 4500m at times over fairly rugged terrains. Visitors must be a regular hill walker/hiker.
* Moderate to Strenuous: Trek may involve going over passes at around 5000m. Trails are not so well defined and there could be snow and ice at higher altitude. Higher fitness level and more importantly the right attitude is required.
* Strenuous: A challenging Himalayan adventure which will involve trekking over 5000m. Trekkers should have previous experience of trekking in high altitude.
* Strenuous Plus: - This grade is for all our Trekking Peaks. Must have experince of high altitude trekking with knowledge of traversing over ice and snow.
