What is Trekking?
Trekking in Nepal is a pioneering sport. Nepal trekking is a mountain walk from place to place, rather than just rambling or day walking from a fixed base. A trek is not necessarily more arduous or uncomfortable than center-based sojourns; we believe they are more interesting and rewarding. Trekking appeals to different people for different reasons. Most are drawn to healthy exercise and magnificent mountain scenery, both of which are fully guaranteed. Because of the nature of the treks we offer, All Nepal Adventure Tours & Treks Pvt. Ltd. is ideal for those looking for unspoiled areas and the chance to immerse themselves in a region's indigenous culture, history, and traditions. For some- certainly not everyone the lure of trekking is the desire to take on a strenuous, testing high-altitude route.
How long is the trek and how far do you walk each day?
In general, the duration of the trek is determined by your interest and the location of the trek. Your trek can last anywhere from 2-3 days to an entire month or longer if you wish. We can accommodate day hikes, cultural visits to local villages, and relaxing rest days on your trek. The decision is up to you. When you ask how far you walk each day, it is difficult to respond, but it is best to answer in terms of time rather than distance, because mileage is dictated by altitude and terrain. Walking time, including rest, ranges from four to eight hours, but there is no hard and fast rule.
How difficult is it to trek?
The difficulty of the trek depends on where you want to trek and how long you want to go for. The shorter treks tend to be easier, while the longer ones require some physical fitness. Be prepared for some steep trails leading to amazing views. The pace at which you hike is up to you. We have friendly and dependable porters to assist you with your personal gear.
Where are we going to stay during the trek?
Where acceptable hotel facilities exist, we normally use them. Tea houses are a way of life for almost all trekkers. They are a mix of a guest house, a restaurant, and a social gathering place. We encourage all Everest, Langtang, and Annapurna trekkers to try our tea house treks. Our many years of experience along these routes have helped us find the friendliest, cleanest, and most enjoyable tea houses with the best views. Most tea houses have running water. Many have hot water available for bathing. But we discourage our groups from using water heated by wood fires due to the lack of firewood in most villages. Deforestation is a big environmental concern in Nepal. These are also excellent ways to help the local villages. In remote terrain, we camp in tents. Even if you've never camped before, you don't need to worry: the tents we provide are roomy and the sleeping pads/mattresses are comfortable. On all of our treks, there is a bathroom tent and a dining tent with tables and camp stools, providing a cozy, comfortable atmosphere to eat and chat with fellow trekkers during the evening.
Where and what type of food is served?
If you select a tea house or lodge, you will eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner there. We will stop for lunch at one of the various trail-side restaurants. And snacks are always easy to find. If you are on a camping trek, we will prepare all the meals and snacks. Almost every tea house serves the traditional Nepali meal, Dal Bhat (rice and curried lentils). All the tea houses we stay at have a variety of different foods on the menu, including noodles, rice, potatoes, vegetables and soup. Some have Nepalese versions of western food such as pizza and French fries too. The choice is yours. Most tea houses sell sodas and beer, and, of course, Nepalese milk tea is served everywhere. If you choose camping or tented hiking, our expert trekking cooks prepare meals in a tented camp for the duration of the trip.
How safe is the food?
Food safety is always a big concern when visiting a foreign country. This is why we do our best to choose lodges [ tea houses] and restaurants with clean and sanitary kitchens. On our lodge treks, we provide a cook to prepare safe and tasty meals with our own set of dishes as well as hygienic cleaning facilities. The food we serve on camping trips is completely safe.
Where do we get water during the trip?
All tea houses provide trekkers with boiled and filtered water. Your guide will provide you with all the water you need during your trek. We discourage the purchase of bottled water while on the trail. Plastic bottles are difficult to recycle and have become an environmental hazard. On a camping trek, we boil water in the morning and you will have enough boiled water in your bottle.
Is the water safe to drink?
Your guide will be in charge of all your water needs. He will make sure all the water is boiled and treated with iodine. Iodine is 100% effective in killing the bacteria in water.
What happens if there is an emergency?
All Nepal Adventure Tours & Treks Pvt. Ltd. prides itself on being prepared for any emergency situation. Our guides are trained in first aid and can deal with most of the basic ailments that occur during a trek. But if a serious emergency occurs, then outside help is needed. Every client should have their own insurance before coming to Nepal. If an emergency occurs, Himalaya Journey Trekking & Expedition will initially cover the cost of an evacuation until your insurance company can deliver payment.
Is there going to be a doctor on the hike?!!
We can't guarantee a doctor in every hiking area, but we do try to encourage suitably experienced medical personnel to join our high altitude treks by offering a discount in return for looking after the medical needs of a group. In addition to trekking to the doctors, our group leaders are trained in first aid.
Could you tell me how much money I need?
This is a bit difficult to explain to you without knowing your proper holiday plan. But you can make it easy by explaining your interests-that you like to do tours, trekking, rafting, wildlife safaris, shopping etc. or by explaining the categories of hotel that you're going to accommodate and the nature of the tour you're going to do, and the total days in Nepal. We'll tell you how much it costs! Then you will know how much money you should have to bring with you.
What sort of experience do your guides have?
All Nepal Adventure Tours & Treks Pvt. Ltd. has professional, dependable and experienced guides, who are all well trained by our government. All of our guides have spent years exploring the mountains and countryside of Nepal. All of the guides speak English and Japanese and are well-versed in the various trekking routes. Our guides will have the pleasure of guiding you on the most beautiful trails in the Himalayas, which will enhance and make your holiday a success. Our guides are trained in first aid and know how to react in any situation. And most importantly, our guides are very friendly and enjoyable and want to share with you the faith of Nepal.
Are they both in a relationship?
What would be when I am single or with my family? guided trek/tour and group tour. If you are alone and willing to join up with other people, this is always possible. At your request, we will give all the details of the members and the size of the groups that you're joining. People traveling with us may be of any nationality, either sex, alone or accompanied, experienced travelers or complete beginners. Groups are always small (in general, 10 or less). English is the common language, and there can be a wide age-range. We apply no upper age limit, though we ask those over 70 for their doctor's confirmation of their fitness to participate. Generally speaking, we regard our trips as being for adults: unaccompanied minors are not accepted, but of course we will accept accompanied minors. Our family vacation is tailored to the needs of the younger members of the family.
Will we have private rooms and bathrooms?
Private rooms are available in most lodges or tea houses, except for those at very high altitudes. Most bathrooms are shared. On our lodge treks, we also provide someone to clean all the bathroom facilities for our groups. Our lodge treks also include bed and pillow covers.
How difficult is the trek?
We can absolutely assure you that you do not have to be young, very experienced, or super fit to enjoy most of our treks. Our trekkers range from 18 to 39. Previous walking experience, though useful, is not essential: the great majority of our treks could be undertaken by anyone who is in good health, enjoys outdoor life, and is reasonably fit. Many of our guests casually participate in sports such as swimming, cycling, tennis or golf. Our treks are graded for difficulty, from A (easy) to E (technical).
What do we do on a daily basis while trekking?
A hiking day begins around 6 am with a mug of coffee or tea served through your Lodge Bed/tent flap. Hot water is provided for washing and shaving, followed by breakfast. Water is provided in your water containers. We strike camp and begin walking in the pleasant cool of the morning for 2-4 hours before stopping for lunch. This two-hour break offers an opportunity to write in your diary, read and relax. The full meal typically includes fresh fruit, tinned meat, cheese, rice, chapatis or biscuits, cooked vegetables, and tea or coffee. We usually reach our campsite by 4 p.m. and have tea and biscuits shortly afterwards. There is time to rest or explore before our evening meal at 6 p.m. This is the social event of the day. It begins with an appetizer and soup, followed by the main course and dessert with tea or coffee. The variety and quality of our "camp" food will delight you. Guests keep threatening to take our cooks home with them! As we mainly camp near villages, there is usually plenty of time to visit with the locals before or after dinner and sample their home brews. As night approaches, most people retire to their warm sleeping bags and are fast asleep by 9:30 p.m.
