What is Trekking?

Trekking is joyful walking experience which is combination of hiking and walking activity in which one can take multi day experience enjoying scenery of any regions, hills, territory, valleys and mountains. In real, Trekking is long distance walking, generally overnight that covers existing infrastructure support (lodges, porters, frequent shops and vendors offering goods along the route).

Types of Trekking
  1. Camping trek is one of the most adventurous, fully organized, supportive and enjoyable treks for the trekkers. Camping trek is not suitable in every location. It is most appropriate in unbeaten trekking trails.
  2. Tea House trek, also known as lodge trekking, is a relatively cheaper way of trekking where meals and accommodation are provided in a teahouse.
  3. Trekking along with the guides and porter is called Guide and Porter trek.

Trekking is an interesting walking holidays; adventurous journey to discover the diversity of nature and culture by foot on hills or High Mountain areas where is not accessible by modern transportation. In these modern times, we have got into a hectic lifestyle where time is always scarce. We have to manage time between our professional and personal activities and hence the need for relaxing and distressing is felt. Travel has always been a best option to relax and offers a fantastic break from the daily routine. One activity which is a perfect option for all the adventure freaks is none other than trekking in Nepal.

Trekking is similar to Meditation. For the adventure freaks and trek enthusiasts, Himalayas and Himalayan foot hills are the heaven one can explore natural, cultural and geographic diversity. Those who are adventurous go for trekking in very risky mountainous areas. Backpackers get the opportunity to acquire immense knowledge from their experiences in the mountainous areas as well as the remote villages. People go for trekking for a few days or even for a few months. Normally, the backpackers walk for 4 – 6 hours daily during their trekking program.

Trekking is the most adventurous action one can ever experience. It is a test of bravery, courage and endurance. Himalayan ranges are famed for wonderful and courageous trekking. Trekking can be done almost anywhere in the world but there are some places which are popular in trekkers including mountainous regions such as the Himalayas in Asia and the Andes in South America.

Best time to trek in Nepal

Mid of September to mid of December is considered the best time to trek in Nepal. Autumn is considered the best season to trek in Nepal. You can experience better visibility of tantalizing mountains, green hills and excellent weather. Weather is generally clear with mild to warm days and cold nights.

However, Spring is also the good season to Trek in Nepal. The blooming flowers, lush greenery, and sparkling mountains make for an excellent background to spring trekking. Spring feels like a delight with singing birds, beautiful views, and abundant wildflowers. Weather will be mild at lower elevation but cold at higher elevation. In spring, mornings are usually crystal clear. However, in the afternoon clouds bring rain showers.

Experience and Fitness on  Trekking in Nepal

There are treks for people of all levels of experience and physical ability. You can find a good trek in Nepal if you can walk uphill for a few hours each day. Anyone who is reasonably fit can do an easy trek with Nepali assistance (guide/porter) and teahouse accommodation. Longer journeys, climbing high passes, and venturing into remote areas necessitate a higher level of endurance. It is preferable to have some alpine climbing expertise for trekking peaks, i.e. summiting a mountain of 5650-6500m.

Equipment and Supplies for Trekking in Nepal

Everything you need may be purchased or rented in Kathmandu’s Thamel neighbourhood and Pokhara’s Lakeside neighbourhood, though it is preferable to wear previously broken-in footwear. There are some nice deals on wool and down jackets, but the knockoffs of brand-name goods marketed in Nepal are of poor quality. The most important items to bring are durable and comfortable hiking boots, a sleeping bag (depending on your lodging), a daypack, and a few changes of clothing for the changing climates. Hiking pants, thermals, gloves, a neck warmer/scarf, a beanie, a warm inner jacket, and a windproof/waterproof outer jacket are all required for cold weather. It is fairly typical for locals to toss waste into the environment. Please consider bringing water purifying solutions so you don’t have to buy water in plastic bottles, as you don’t know what happens to the empty bottles. A trekking stick or two, a waterproof bag, fabric bandages such as moleskin, a headlamp, altitude sickness and other medication, a camera, and binoculars are also recommended.

Maps are widely available in Nepal, albeit they may not be completely accurate. The blue-covered map series is printed and widely accessible in a variety of sizes and scales; however, be aware that the lesser sizes omit the highly important time/distance figures on the inside of the cover, despite statements on the cover to the contrary. Also, bigger size maps are difficult to utilize when looking at various routes that might connect two locations. Crampons and ice axes may be required for more challenging mountaineering excursions. Crampons that attach to the shoe with a rubber ring are commonly available in the Thamel district. Spikes, microspikes, and chains are all names for these.

Required Permits

There are many and inevitable police checkpoints, and park inspectors can check your permits at any time, with a fine of twice the standard fee if you are discovered without the required permissions. You should not try to bribe cops or police officials since it will just lead you into further difficulties. The majority of the time, there will be two or three permits: one for a conservation area or national park, one for a Trekkers Information Management System (TIMS) Card, and one for a restricted area access permit. The first two permissions are normally required, with the third required only in some regions.


Whether you trek with an organized group, trek independently with other independent travellers, or hire your own guide and/or porter is a personal choice that should be based on the complexity of the journey and available budget. When choosing an agency, talk with many and ask comprehensive questions about the differences in service that go beyond the standard rate. If you hire employees without the help of an agency, be aware of your duties to guarantee that your guide is properly equipped for the work and stays safe.

Accommodation on Trekking in Nepal

Before beginning your adventure, do some research on the types of accommodations available.

Tea Houses (Lodges) at several spots along the trip provide dorm room accommodation and simple basic meals similar to what the locals consume. Although many tea houses and motels in the hills and mountains are relatively decent, some may be filthy and lacking in amenities. Dining rooms may be smokey in regions where chimneys are scarce. The bedrooms and dorms will not be heated. Note that bedding is not given by the lodges, and nights can get extremely chilly, so bringing a sleeping bag is recommended even for teahouse hikes.

Camping is possible practically anyplace in the country. Camping expeditions can be completely organized and supported by a team of guides (who may or may not be Sherpas), cooks, and porters. Homestays in nearby communities can be arranged.
