Trekking In Nepal


Trekking in Nepal can be the gift for the world in adventure tourism sector. To be one with Nature, to regenerate one's own self-esteem, to rediscover oneself, to appreciate Nepal's beauty, to interact with its hospitable and friendly people are some of the highlights of trekking in Nepal. Trekking is one long-term activity that draws repeat visitors to the country. Therefore, trekking in Nepal is the ultimate destination for the trekking enthusiast. nepal_trekTrekking in Nepal offers a myriad of possibilities - from the "short and easy" walking excursions to the "demanding and strenuous" challenges of the snowy peaks and their foothills and valleys. But however easy, moderate, or strenuous, there is something for every palate that goes with trekking in Nepal's hills, mountains and hinterlands. The most rewarding way to experience Nepal's indomitable combination of natural beauty and cultural riches is to walk through the length, breadth and the altitudes of Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is as much a unique cultural experience as well as an ultimate Himalayan adventure. 

 

“All walking is discovery.  On foot we take the time to see things whole.” - Hal Borland.

Nepal is regarded as one of the best destinations for Trekking adventures. But still there are so many people and places untouched in this diverse, mystical, ancient country. Great diversity of landscapes within few kilometers provides trekkers amazing varieties of experiences in a single trek of few hours. Trekkers have many different options- choices range from lowland, socio-cultural trekking, middle hill trail passing different villages flora and fauna or Highland Mountain trekking adventures. You can follow popular rout or discover a new one to make others follow you. Wherever you go, Motherland accompanies you with a perfect guide for your perfect safety, security, pleasure and discoveries.

Trekking paths in Nepal are timeless pilgrimage routes, trails between villages or tracks to high grazing pastures full of incredible natural beauty. Rural life, little changed for centuries surrounds the trekkers, which is thought provoking and very different from western way of life. Higher up in the alpine valleys the villages are replaced by herders’ huts, higher still, the ice castle of the Himalayas.

 

When to go

The best seasons for trekking are the dry and warm seasons, March-June and September-November. During these times, the temperature is bearable and skies are usually clear, although the skies are foggier and the rain begins in May-June. It is possible to trek out of season, but expect rain and leeches during the summer monsoon season and severe cold and closed passes during the winter months.

During the monsoon season, the treks are virtually empty of travellers. Most rain usually comes at night; days are cloudy with less rain. The north side of the Himalayas is in rain shadow, meaning that the mountains somewhat block the rain. Annapurna Circuit is in rain shadow after Pisang. The skies are still cloudy and it rains occasionally. In mornings the skies may be clearer, but the views are still nowhere as good as during the trekking season. Landslides may block the trekking routes.

See also the Nepal climate section.

 

Accommodation

Be sure to research the type of accommodation available on your trek before embarking.

Tea Houses (Lodges) at settlements at various points on the trek offer dorm room accommodation and simple basic meals reflective of what the local people in the area eat. Although many tea houses and hotels in the hills and mountains are reasonably comfortable, some may be dirty and rather basic. In areas where chimneys are rare, dining rooms may be smoky. Bedrooms and dorm rooms will not be heated. Note that linens are not provided by the lodges, and nights can get very cold, so it makes sense to bring a sleeping bag even for teahouse treks.

Camping can be conducted almost anywhere in the country. Camping treks can be fully organized and supported with a team of guides (who may or may not be Sherpas), cooks, and porters to accompany you.

Homestays in local villages can be organized.

 

Trekking Themes

Treks can be customized based on your desires. Some treks are designed to see the best mountainous views, some are designed to expose life in the villages, some are designed based around detox/healthy living programs, while others include daily yoga and meditation classes. Ask around and consult with local guides to find a trek that best suits your interests.

 

Responsible trekking

  • Trek legally. If you trek independently, you are not allowed to take any staff by law. You need for this a Trekking Agency, the sole authorized to employ staff for foreign trekkers. Do not hire staff or "independent guides" through hotels, unless they have a Trekking Agent licence or offer this service through an affiliated Trekking Agent. 
  • For the most proper disposal available, please make sure you take all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants, to the nearest truck-accessible road. 
  • Note the pollution and lack of trash management in the villages on the treks - including trash-clogged rivers and mounds of discarded beer bottles. Nepal is struggling with its rapid Westernization and hasn't yet figured out how to dispose of its waste. Don't contribute to the problem any more than necessary! 
  • After your trek, you can give your clothes to the porters' clothing bank which is managed by the KEEP association [1]. This bank is located in the Thamel neighborhood of Kathmandu and provides clothes to the trekking porters.
