Frequently Asked Questions
Trekking in the Himalayas Trekking in Nepal is an intense cultural experience as well as an exploration of one of the world's most hiker-friendly and spectacular environments. Nepal has a staggering number of potential routes for trekkers. These are just not a pathway designed for recreational use, but a working transportation network for goods and people. While trekking you will see the great diversity of Nepal. Villages embrace many ethnic groups and cultures. The beauty and attraction of the Nepal Himalaya emanates not only from the mountains themselves, but also from their surroundings.

There are two contrasting approaches to trekking in Nepal. The independently minded opt for tea house trekking, moving from village to village along mostly well trodden routes, enjoying the lodges with their mix of foreigners and locals and nights of story telling around the fire. The other approach is go on an organised trip where porters and guides are hired to bring along tents, cooking equipment and food. These are ideal for discovering more remote areas and learning about the varied cultures and people of Nepal first hand. The choice of areas and routes is bewildering.

All our treks listed below are primarily 'tea house' treks.
Everest Region
The highest mountain in the world continues to lure adventurers as ever, and is still the most popular trek in Nepal. Starting with an exciting flight to Lukla, this classic walk penetrates right into the Sherpa homeland of Solu Khumbu with a clear cut aim to see the magnificent form of Everest. This region is famous not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain, but also for its beautiful breathtaking views, sacred Monasteries and hard working, friendly Sherpa people.

The Sherpa home land is still dominated by the old mountain gods; their language, customs and religion reflecting their Tibetan origins. Traditional life combined yak-herding, barley and potato farming and trading with nearby Tibet until the Chinese invasion. In the 1950's the Sherpa people quickly adapted to a new role, serving as guides and expedition support. Now they are regarded as the world's best guides and mountaineers.

The trek itself climbs to 5,550 metres passing through a number of small villages, sampling their hospitality and culture in the comfortable tea-houses along the way. It is a demanding trek, however with the support and guidance of our experienced guides and mountaineers, it is a very achievable and fulfilling journey.

North Of Kathmandu
The Langtang-Helambu-Gosainkunda region is easily accessible from Kathmandu. The easy access doesn't mean you lose out on quality. Langtang in particular is among the finest mountain treks anyone could hope for. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet than to the traditions of their cousins in the middle hills. The upper valley is a grazing paradise, rich in flowers and grass, dotted with stone huts used in the summertime butter-making. Sewn in skins and exported to Tibet to flavour tea and fuel monastery lamps, butter was once the region's major industry. Gosainkunda high atop an open ridge are admittedly more minor treks, shorter than Langtang. Gosainkunda Lake (4,298 m), is sacred to Shiva, whom devotees claim they see floating in the bottom of the lake in the form of a large rock. Shiva is said to have created holy Gosainkunda Lake with his trident, and it's waters are believed to be connected via subterranean channels to Patan's Khumbeshwar Mahadev temple. Thousands of pilgrims flock here for the Janai Purnima festival (usually the August full moon). A nearby summit to the north yields excellent mountain views. Helambu is about 75 km north of Kathmandu and it is the most easily accessible of all the trekking regions. This area is inhabited by Sherpas but they are very different from the Solu Khumbu Sherpas. They have different language, culture and dress. The Helambu trek is popular because it is short, stays below 3500 m and is feasible even in the winter. If time is not a constraint then we can always start from Langtang and end at Helambu via Holy lake Gosainkunda.

Annapurna Region
Central Nepal is dominated by the Annapurna Himal and the village of Pokhara. North of Pokhara, Nepal's spectacular diversity appears at it's finest. The deep valleys and high mountains encircling the giant Annapurna Himal embrace a wide range of peoples and terrain, from subtropical jungle to a high, dry landscape resembling the Tibetan Plateau. Alpine meadows, bamboo forests, and a variety of trees make a day's experience remarkable. Wildlife includes the barking deer, and blue sheep. You will be working through rhododendron forests over the foothills of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest in the world, and Lake Tilicho (4,919m), the highest lake are located here. It's the most popular trekking destination in Nepal. About two thirds of the trekkers in Nepal visit the Annapurna region. The area is easily accessible, hotels in the hills are plentiful and treks here offer good scenery of both high mountains and lowland villages. Besides the tea house treks you can also go for short and scenic treks off the beaten track and away from the normal trekking traffic. There are several beautiful trekking trails in this region with lots of flexibility - all of which can be arranged to suit your requirements.
