The budget and trek style also plays role in shaping your treks.The best treks in Nepal for you it based on popularity, scenery, culture and price.
Nepal is known internationally for its picturesque Himalayan mountains. It is especially known to the most mighty Mount Everest.The best way to explore Nepal’s Himalayas is on your own two feet by trekking in Nepal. Nepal offers short treks up to 5 days, medium treks up to 12 days and long treks for the adventurous kind where you can be out in the wilderness for up to 20 days or longer. Every Nepal Trek you go on, you are bound to be invited to stay at someone’s house or tea house. Nepal’s hospitality is just awesome, and so are Nepal’s treks.
Trekking is the most popular activity in Nepal.The dry and warm seasons such as March to June and September to November is the best time of year, trekking in Nepal. During these season, 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 time of year.
A wide range of experience and physical fitness is helpful for Nepal Trekking. If you can walk uphill for a few hours each day, then you can find a suitable trek in Nepal. Trekking Nepal with Nepali support-guide/porter and tea house accommodation is quite attainable for anyone who is reasonably fit. Longer treks in Nepal crossing high passes and into remote regions demand a higher degree of endurance. Restricted areas treks in Nepal such as Dolpo, Upper Mustang, Manaslu, Tsum Valley, Nar-Phu, and Kanchenjunga require a special trekking permits which are obtainable only through local Nepal trekking company and trek with guide or porter when trekking.
A trek in Nepal isn’t as difficult as you might think. Trekking difficulty will depend on a different factors including your experience, physical fitness, pack weight, and weather conditions. There are many different types of treks in Nepal with varying degrees of difficulty. Make sure to choose a trek that fits your fitness level and train adequately before you trek. Trekking in Nepal are not technical means no ropes, ice axes, or crampons are required, but there will still be big ups and downs. There are sure to be long days and sore legs, but treks in Nepal are paced to give a lot of time for rest and acclimatization, so don’t afraid. Nepal trek certainly won’t be easy, but most active trekkers fair very well on Nepal’s trails, especially with some training beforehand. Porters are another consideration for reducing the difficulty of trekking in Nepal. A porter can be hired to carry heavy gear, so all you have to tote is a small day pack.
We have in Nepal now the tea house trekking culture. Tea houses are essentially small mountain lodges frequently spaced along popular trekking trails. On most trails in the Everest, Annapurna, Manaslu, and Langtang regions you’ll pass a tea house every hour or two. This is a great place to meet other trekkers, eat a home-cooked meal, warm your toes by the fire, and bed down for the night. On a tea house trek you’ll sleep in one of the lodges every night and you’ll eat almost all of your meals in teahouses too. Accommodations are usually simple, comfortable, and very affordable. It’s expected that you’ll eat your meals wherever you stay. Tea houses also sell snacks, candy, hot showers, beer, and wifi. The usual setup is a small room with two twin beds and a shared bathroom down the hall. Some teahouses have rooms with attached bathrooms, but you’ll likely pay an extra for this. Blankets may be provided, but we recommend hiking with a sleeping bag for warmth, comfort, and cleanliness
Camping treks are recommended to trek in Nepal’s more remote areas. This option will add cost and complexity, but could lead to a unique and rewarding trek. That said, camping treks aren’t nearly as popular as tea house treks and camping won’t be necessary on any tea house trekking routes in Nepal.
It is highly recommended purchasing travel insurance if you plan to trek in Nepal. In fact, we wouldn’t trek in Nepal without it. Most trekking locations in Nepal are very remote, so if something goes wrong, you’re likely to need an emergency evacuation, and that can get insanely expensive. When choosing travel insurance, make sure to buy a plan that will cover high altitude trekking and helicopter evacuations in Nepal. We did a bunch of research and ended up choosing World Nomads. Their rates are reasonable, their coverage is excellent, and communicating with them is easy. We fortunately do not need to use your travel insurance, but the peace of mind alone is well worth it.
