October and November are the best months for trekking. The air
is clear, the vegetation still lush after the monsoon, and
both day and night temperatures are pleasant. December and
January are colder (especially at higher altitudes) and
generally dustier. High passes, like Thorong La on the
Annapurna Circuit, can be closed and you need more equipment.
Everest looks bare as it has very little snow cover. March and
April are hazy, though in March, rhododendrons are
particularly attractive. May is very hot and quite dusty and
streams do not carry much water. The monsoons (June to Mid
September) are wet, though you may get breaks of 3 or 4 days
in the rain. Clouds can lift to give you some good mountain
views. Equipment may feel a little damp. Weather in late
September is unpredictable, but the trails are much less
crowded, and hence, more pleasant. Leeches can be unpleasant
in damper places.
A valid permit is required for certain areas, which we will
obtain upon your arrival. We will require two working days and
two passport size photographs. Permits are not required for
the Annapurna, Everest and Langtang treks. However,
conservation fees are required for these national parks.
Food and Water:
The trekking staff will take maximum care in respect of water.
Water is boiled properly before preparing tea or coffee. We
advise against drinking water from tea shops. The staff
re-fills the water bottles during breakfast and dinner with
properly treated water. Food on treks is wholesome and freshly
prepared for each meal. The canned food is served rarely and
is only used on long treks.
Acclimatization is important for the trekking above 3500 m.
The trekking routines have been carefully designed to maximize
your ability to acclimatize safely. We ascend slowly and
ensure an adequate number of rest days. However, mountain
sickness is still possible and the symptoms could be headache,
nausea, lethargy and breathlessness. If any of the group
members display any such symptoms then, a proper course of
action will be taken. The tour leader will also advise
thoroughly regarding the altitude and most of the problems
prior to starting on trail.
First aid kit:
A first aid kit is provided on group treks. But, we also
suggest you to bring the following supplementary items with
Anti-diarrhoea tablets, blister pads, sterile plain and crepe
bandages, tube of antiseptic cream, throat lozenges,
decongestants/antihistamines, paracetamol or aspirin and
personal medicines as prescribed by your physician.
Disposal of rubbish:
We recommend that each trekker should have a small bag during
the trip. Each morning a small fire is lit for burnable
rubbish. Any non-burnable or non-biodegradable rubbish should
be carried back to Kathmandu and disposed off.
Money and valuable securities:
Always carry Nepalese rupees in small amount during your trek.
The amount to be carried depends on the area and the duration
of the trek. A guideline for this will be presented during the
starting of the tour. Money will only be required for the
purchase of soft or hard bottled drinks and souvenirs along
the way. Other money and valuables should be kept in a safe
deposit box in your hotel in Kathmandu.
