General conditions/tips etc

Accommodation.

All hotels are of a good standard, within Tourist class category. Nepal is a developing country, so some rough corners should be expected, and tolerated. Electricity can suddenly be cut off, and hot water in the shower is not always guaranteed. A sense of humor is important.

When trekking we use lodges/home stays, where again the standard can vary. In the high season you may end up in a dormitory, or even sleeping in the dining room. We aim for own rooms with two or a double bed. But again: humor helps.

Food

In Kathmandu you have a wide selection of places to eat. On the trek the menu is more limited. Here we tend to eat simple, with the Nepali national dish, Dhal Bhat being popular (rice, lentils and vegetables/meat curry), but there is pizza and other exotic foods on the menu. You rarely go hungry, but standards can vary. At each meal we provide tea and coffee.

Best Season of Trekking

Trekking is best during the pre and the post monsoon periods, i.e. March to May, and even better from the end of September to early December. Winter is December to end Feb and can be too cold in most areas, and June to early September the Monsoon is upon us. Having said that, it is possible to trek in Nepal year round. Let us know your dates and interests, and we can tailor a suitable trip.

HIKING/TREKKING CHECKLIST

Boots suitable for your given trek, 4 pairs of socks, warm long johns, a windproof and a waterproof pair of trousers. Underpants, T-shirts, insulated mid layer, short and long arm shirts, fleece or wool jacket, and down jacket. Waterproof shell jacket. Gloves, warm hat, sun hat, Buff. Warm sleeping bag. Sun glasses, water bottle, first aid kit, nail clippers, note book and pen, reading material, camera. Lip cream and sun cream. Toiletries and towel. Torch, spare batteries, and charger for phone (lodges charge for this). Day pack (ca 25 to 30 ltr.). Inner shoes for the lodges.

Ski or Nordic walking poles are popular. Unless you have a knee or health issue, we recommend the use of just one. Why? When using two poles about 15% of your expended energy is in your arms, where God made legs to walk with. In addition your posture becomes more cramped, not helping with breathing at altitude. One pole allows you greater flexibility, so you may wind your way up the path, and put less pressure on the respiratory system. We recommend having one pole, especially useful on the way down, when it is steep, the path is wet, or you are simply tired.
