Trekking season

Nepal is an all season travel destination for trekkers. The most favorable season for mountain trekking in Nepal is anytime from September to December and March to May. Nepal has four seasons:

 

Spring season (March to May) has mild temperature. Countryside and higher hilly regions are decorated with green vegetation and blossoming rhododendron flowers during this time. This is best time for mountain expedition.

 

Summer season (June to August) starts as soon as spring is over. This season is wet and warm. Trekking is recommended in rain shadow zone such as Dolpa, Upper Mustang, Humla, Jumla, Rara Lake during this time.

 

Autumn season (September to November) is the best season for mountain trekking. We expect fairly nice weather condition and clear sky during this time.

 

Winter season (December to February) is generally cold and occasional snowfall is expected at the higher elevations. Lower altitude trekking below 3000 meters is advisable during this time.

 

Trekking permit

No trekking permit is required to trek in general trekking spots like Annapurna, Everest and Langtang region. Conservation area permit such as ACAP permit, Sagarmatha national park permit are required however. Special entry permit should be obtained to get entry into restricted regions such as Upper Mustang, Dolpa, Manaslu. For more details on entry permit, please visit special entry permit

 

Fitness level for mountain trekking

Although previous experience is not necessary to undertake any trekking in Nepal, fairly good level of physical fitness is a must. Trekking includes long hours point to point walking in the mountain. Good physical conditioning is therefore necessary to tackle difficult mountain tracks and one should be prepared for that. To get condition for the adventure, it is highly recommended to have physical fitness programs such as swimming, cycling, walking up hill and down at home.

 

Medical facilities and travel insurance

Everyone undertaking trekking activities in Nepal should be well insured by travel medical insurance that covers an injury, sudden illness, cancellation, damaging properties, helicopter rescue in case of emergency. Our trekking crews always carry first aid medical kit in the mountain. In case of any minor illness and injury, trekker’ aid posts operated by Himalayan rescue association are available in some places of Everest, Annapurna and Langtang region.

In case of serious illness, high altitude sickness or any injury, we arrange immediate helicopter rescue service to Kathmandu for treatment. It is always advisable to have your health checked before you start your trip at home to avoid any possible health hazards whilst on the trek.
