Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


Nepal is an incredible nation for trekking. There are tons of of trekking and climbing routes of various size and issue. No marvel yearly it attracts thousand of mountaineers and hikers from all around the world. Within the final 12 months we’ve spend 6 months in Nepal and have executed a number of treks together with the foremost routes like Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit. On this submit we share our experience so as to allow you to to plan an ideal trekking vacation in Nepal.

Nepalese visa on arrival

Nationalities of essentially the most international locations can get a Nepalese visa on arrival. To facilitate the method particularly within the peak season April-Could and October-November you may submit your utility on-line by the web site. It takes a while to fill the shape on the airport. There are solely 5 machines obtainable. Within the peak season you may spend about 1 hour ready. After filling the shape and printing it you go to the counter to pay to your visa. The value will depend on the period of your keep. On arrival you will get Three sorts of visas: a 15-day visa (US$30), a 30-day visa (US$50) and a 90-day visa (US$125). Visas paid in USD.

If you wish to prolong your visa you are able to do it on the Immigration Workplace in Kathmandu or Pokhara. We’ve executed it a few instances in Pokhara, it was fast and simple. Each extension is for 15 days minimal, value US$45. If it’s not sufficient you may prolong it once more. Relying on the nation of your origin you may keep in Nepal as much as 180 days per 12 months.

Cash in Nepal

Nepalese Rupee (NPR) is the official foreign money. The change fee (April 2020) – US$1 = NPR 120. There are various foreign money change locations in Kathmandu and Pokhara the place you may change the foremost currencies like USD, Euro, British Kilos, Australian and Canadian {Dollars}, Japanese Yen.

You pay in Rupees for the whole lot together with trekking permits, home flights, bus tickets, and many others. The one place you pay in USD is the airport whenever you get your visa on arrival. For visa extension on the Immigration Workplace in Kathmandu or Pokhara you pay in Rupees. 

Most ATMs cost NPR 400-500/US$3-Four fee per transaction regardless how a lot cash you draw. It’s higher to attract as a lot as you may to pay the fee on a much bigger quantity. From our experience ATMs of Nabil Financial institution are the perfect; their limit is NPR 35 000/US$290 per withdrawal. ATMs of different banks allow you to draw NPR 15 000-20 000/US$120-200 per transaction which suggests you must draw twice to get the identical quantity and pay the fee twice.

ATMs could be present in most cities and cities throughout Nepal. Whenever you go trekking I’d strongly advocate taking sufficient money even when there’s an ATM someplace on the route there could be no cash in it. Out of a number of treks we’ve executed in Nepal we noticed ATMs solely on the Annapurna Circuit in Jomsom and on Everest Base Camp trek in Lukla and Namche Bazar. 

Money vs playing cards 

Many motels, espresso retailers and fancy eating places settle for bank cards, they all the time cost 3-4% further (a financial institution payment) in the event you pay by card. Supermarkets and large gear retailers settle for playing cards as nicely. Grocery shops, small retailers, buses, taxis and homestays settle for solely money. Typically card machines don’t work. It’s all the time really useful to have sufficient money for simply in case. 

Finest time for mountain climbing

Nepal has 4 seasons; spring (March – Could), summer time (June – August), autumn (September – November) and winter (December – February). Spring and autumn are the perfect seasons for trekking. The climate is sweet and the temperature is snug for strolling, not too scorching, not too chilly, not too moist. Summer time is the worst time for mountain climbing, it’s the height of the monsoon season, it rains loads in every single place. In winter it will get very chilly larger up within the mountains, many guesthouses are closed, folks go right down to Kathmandu or Pokhara for winter.

Some folks like trekking in winter as a result of there are nearly no folks. We did the Langtang trek in mid-February and even there it was fairly chilly. Some routes could be closed in winter as a result of avalanche threat or an excessive amount of snow within the space.

April and October are the busiest months in Nepal. We tried to not trek throughout these months the paths get crowded and it spoils a bit bit the experience. Climate-wise April and October are the perfect months. We did EBC trek in April as soon as and there have been many individuals however we by no means had any issues with discovering lodging.

Trekking permits

Regardless in the event you do a trek independently or with a information for many trekking routes contained in the Nationwide parks you’ll want a allow. For a lot of treks you’ll want a TIMS card as nicely. In response to the Tourism Board in Kathmandu you want it for any trekking exercise within the nation however I’d advocate checking it for a particular trek.

For Everest Base Camp trek you don’t want the TIMS although on the Tourism Board Workplace in Kathmandu they insist you do. In reality, on the trek no one ever checks it. There’s a totally different allow established by the native authorities that you just purchase on the best way. On the identical time for trekking within the Annapurna Conservation Space you want each the TIMS and the park allow. Should you’re going to trek exterior the Nationwide parks e.g. Panchase trek or Royal trek from Pokhara, you don’t want any permits or TIMS.

The TIMS card prices NPR 2000/US$16. It may be bought on the Tourism Board Workplace in Kathmandu or Pokhara.

As a way to get the TIMS card you’ll want;

  • two passport-size pictures
  • one stuffed type (you get it on the Workplace)
  • your insurance coverage particulars (to fill the shape)
  • contact particulars in Nepal (we all the time put our resort information)
  • NPR 2000/US$16 money, in native foreign money

The Nationwide park permits often could be bought on the Tourism Board Workplaces as nicely. The common value of a allow (Annapurna Sanctuary, Langtang Valley) is NPR 3000/US$25.

To get the allow you’ll want;

  • your passport
  • two passport-size pictures*
  • one stuffed type (you get it on the Workplace)
  • NPR 3000/US$25 money, in native foreign money

On the workplace in Pokhara they take pictures free of charge however typically they run out of provides (paper, paint, and many others.). Should you don’t have pictures and may’t get them on the workplace there are a few photograph locations subsequent door, they cost NPR 300/US$2 for Four pictures. In Kathmandu they’ll take a duplicate of your passport photograph or a photograph (if in case you have just one) in the event you don’t have any.

Some areas have extra restrictions, trekkers should not allowed to go to them with no information or a tour group. Normally these areas are situated near the border with China or Tibet. For instance to do Higher Mustang trek or Manang trek you want a information with a license. Normally for mountain climbing in these areas you want a costlier allow, e.g. a allow for Higher Mustang prices US$500 per particular person in comparison with US$27 for mountain climbing within the Annapurna Sanctuary.

Price of trekking in Nepal

The price will depend on the trek and the way you wish to do it (with a information, porter, and many others.). Some treks work out costlier not solely as a result of lodging and meals value extra however as a result of it’s costlier to get there (EBC trek) otherwise you want a particular allow (Higher Mustang trek) or having a information is obligatory (Manang trek). 

How a lot cash to tackle the trek?

For a snug stroll (not ravenous however not losing tons of cash on coffees and truffles) I’d counsel budgeting US$25-28 per particular person per day to your day by day bills primarily meals, lodging prices nothing or nearly nothing. Price of a information or a porter isn’t included on this quantity. Should you rent a information, anticipate to pay between US$25-30 per day relying on the variety of folks, you may share one information between a few trekkers. Hiring a porter will value you US$20-25 per day. You’ll be able to share one porter between a number of trekkers so long as the mixed weight of your baggage is not more than 20kg. 

All the time take more money that shall be sufficient for a few days in case you get caught someplace as a result of snowfalls, flight cancellation or illness. 

The common value of trekking 

Lodging Meals Permits Transport
US$1-2 pp. B-fast – US$4 TIMS card – US$16 Bus (return) – US$6-8
Lunch – US$4-6 Allow – US$25
Dinner – US$4-6

Everest Base Camp trek works out costlier, lodging costs are larger, you pay further for some amenities (scorching bathe, charging, wi-fi), meals costs are a bit larger as nicely. Test our submit Everest Base Camp trek value for an in depth breakdown. 

Cash saving suggestions

Having some form of water filtration or purification system saves some huge cash. Should you purchase 4-5 1l bottles of consuming water each day in a single week you’ll spend between US$40 and US$50 solely on water. 

Carry tea luggage/prompt espresso/power powder drinks. It’s less expensive to purchase a pot of boiled water than a pot of tea.

Carry peanut butter (in the event you prefer it). You should buy it in Kathmandu or Pokhara, you may order a chapati (native bread) and eat it with peanut butter for breakfast or snack.

Don’t purchase alcohol. Beer and wine are generally very costly in Nepal however they get loopy costly at excessive altitudes (any person has to hold all of it the best way up). A bottle of beer prices about US$7.

Trekking insurance coverage

Formally it’s obligatory to have journey insurance coverage for mountain climbing contained in the Nationwide parks. You fill in your insurance coverage particulars (title of the corporate, telephone quantity, variety of your insurance coverage coverage, and many others.) whenever you apply to your permits. In reality, out of greater than 10 instances we utilized for permits no one has ever requested us to indicate our insurances. Should you don’t have one or your insurance coverage doesn’t cowl trekking you can also make it up in the long run it’s your personal life that you just threat. 

We’ve by no means had any accidents whereas mountain climbing in Nepal however we’re very skilled hikers but we each have insurances that cowl trekking at excessive altitude. Something can occur to you up within the mountains from getting a abdomen bug to getting AMD or breaking your leg. Typically the helicopter is the one means you could be evacuated. It’s very costly we’re speaking about US$5000. Should you don’t have insurance coverage that can cowl the price, you’ll must pay it out of your pocket. 

The principle trekking areas in Nepal

There are tons of of trekking routes in Nepal together with one long-distance route the Nice Himalayan trek (the Nepalese half) that crosses the nation from east to west. The Annapurna Sanctuary and Everest are two hottest trekking areas in Nepal. Treks in these areas have the perfect infrastructure, they are often executed independently.

Trekking routes within the Everest area

  • Everest Base Camp trek – 12-14 days
  • Three Passes trek – 14-16 days
  • Gokyo Lakes trek – 14-16 days
  • Jiri to Lukla trek (an optionally available means of attending to Lukla for individuals who don’t wish to fly) – Three days
  • Pikey Peak trek –

There are a few peaks which can be extra accessible for novice climbers and those that can’t afford climbing Everest or Lhotse, e.g. Island Peak or Mera Peak, each are above 6000m/20 000ft.

Trekking routes within the Annapurna Area

Doing a guided tour vs trekking independently

All of it will depend on your price range, time and the way a lot you wish to be concerned into the method. Some folks advocate becoming a member of a tour or hiring a information in the event you’re a first-time trekkers. We did our first multi-day trek ever (Everest Base Camp trek) independently and the whole lot labored out fantastic. Since then we’ve executed many treks and most of them unguided (aside from those who you’re not allowed to do with no information). We’ve met many individuals trekking in Nepal doing their first trek on their very own as nicely.

Should you’re going to do one of many common routes it’s not an issue to do it with no information even for a first-timer. The route is marked, there are numerous guesthouses, retailers and meals locations. You don’t want a map or GPS for navigation. There are on-line sources (like our weblog) which have detailed trekking itineraries you can simply comply with.

Should you assume that trekking independently includes an excessive amount of planning and also you simply don’t have time for that then becoming a member of a tour is the best choice for you. Should you prepare a tour from dwelling I’d advocate reserving it by a good firm like G-Adventures or Intrepid Journey. They provide full packages that embrace choose up on the airport, lodging earlier than and after the trek, transport, meals and lodging on the trek, information, porters, and many others. You simply choose up a date and the remaining shall be organized for you.

You could find an company in Kathmandu or Pokhara there are numerous of them. You’ll be able to attempt to discover some evaluations on-line of it earlier than reserving a trek with them to verify it’s a dependable firm.

Should you don’t like group excursions it’s attainable to rent a information or a porter (or each) only for you. One of the best ways is to do it by an company to be sure you get a educated information that may converse English, have sufficient experience and all crucial paperwork. A normal value for a information is US$25-30 per day relying on the variety of folks. For a porter that may carry as much as 20-25kg you’ll pay US$20-25 per day. The value consists of their lodging and meals, truly once they stroll with vacationers they keep and eat free of charge. Normally guesthouses have particular room for guides and porters.

Altitude illness and its prevention

It’s vital to keep in mind that anyone can get sick not solely unfit or aged folks. In reality, youthful and fitter trekkers are likely to get sick extra actually because they go up quicker typically skipping really useful acclimatization stops. 

There are totally different types of altitude illness that replicate totally different levels of it. AMS or Acute Mountain Illness is the delicate type of the illness. AMS is attributable to lowered air stress and decrease oxygen ranges at excessive altitudes. Normally folks get it from 2500m/8000ft up above the ocean stage. The principle signs are delicate headache, issue respiration, tiredness. 

The principle causes of getting AMS;

  • Going up too fast. It may be strolling very quick or going an excessive amount of up in someday and never doing really useful acclimatization stops.
  • Not consuming sufficient water. At excessive altitudes it’s really useful to drink 1-1,5l of water further to what you often eat.
  • Well being issues associated to the guts or lungs.
  • Typically individuals who stay on the sea stage (or beneath it) and should not used to larger altitudes are likely to get sick. We met a number of trekkers from the Netherlands on totally different excessive altitude treks in Nepal that didn’t really feel nicely, a few of them needed to flip round.

Should you don’t take any actions after getting the signs of AMS it could progress to excessive altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE), fluid accumulation within the lungs. HAPE wants critical therapy with complement oxygen that isn’t all the time obtainable within the mountains. One of the best ways to forestall it’s to behave satisfactory in line with your physique response to excessive altitude. Should you begin feeling sick, having a headache or nausea, go down by no means push your self.

Tips on how to forestall AMS;

  • Stroll sluggish, make a number of acclimatization stops on the route.
  • Relaxation, throughout the day cease to drink water, for tea or lunch. 
  • Keep hydrated. Typically it’s an issue for me as a result of I don’t really feel like consuming lots of water when it’s chilly and don’t actually sweat strolling. We all the time carry tea luggage with us, order pots of scorching water (cheaper than orderings tea) and drink lots of tea in guesthouses. 
  • Some folks take Diamox or its generic kinds as a prevention. We all the time take it on the trek however have by no means used it but, there was no want. Should you are likely to get sick at excessive altitudes I’d counsel taking it.

Transport in Nepal

You’ll be able to transfer across the nation by native buses, vacationer buses or taking native flight. Flying is the most costly and the quickest means of getting round. From Kathmandu you may fly to Lukla (the beginning of Everest Base Camp trek), Pokhara, Native flights should not low-cost, for a 30-minute flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara you pay US$100. To fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (the beginning of Everest Base Camp trek) will value you US$160 a technique for a 45-minute flight. The flight has a nasty fame as a result of the runaway in Lukla is listed as one of the harmful runaways on this planet. We’ve taken this flight twice it’s fairly an experience particularly the touchdown and taking off from Lukla. Right here is our video concerning the flight.

Our flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and again

Native buses and minibuses go just about in every single place. They’re very low-cost, you pay about US$1 per hour of driving. The principle downside of taking an area bus is time, it takes ages to get someplace even when the place is barely 100km away. First, they wait when the bus will get full. Second, they cease loads to choose up and drop off passengers and items. Third, they make considered one of two lengthy stops for lunch, 30 minutes every. More often than not they play loudly Nepalese or Indian music nonstop for 4-5 hours. Taking an area bus is an experience by itself.

If you wish to get to your vacation spot rapidly and with no problem you may take a vacationer bus. These buses are costlier, about double the value however they’re quicker. For instance, a journey from Kathmandu to Pokhara by an area bus takes between 6 and seven hours, value NPR 400/US$3, by a vacationer bus you’ll get there in 4-5 hours for NPR 1000/US$8.

Many roads within the nation should not tarred. If it rains loads for a few days roads get very muddy then it could take 2-Three hours to drive 40km. It occurred to us as soon as on the best way again from the Annapurna Circuit. We took a bus from Nayapul to Pokhara, which is 40km away and it took us Four hours to get there. As for April 2020 that street was tarred nearly all the best way, we drove it once more and it took simply over 1 hour by a minibus. 

Taxis are the primary transport within the cities. In Kathmandu for a taxi journey from the airport to Thamel (the primary vacationer district) anticipate to pay between NPR 600/US$5 and NPR 800/US$7 relying on the time of the day, variety of passengers, and many others. Observe, many motels in Kathmandu supply a free airport switch for all worldwide flights. To get from Thamel to one of many bus stations in Kathmandu you’ll pay NPR 400-500/US$3-4. 

In Pokhara costs are about the identical, to get to Lakeside (the primary vacationer space) from one of many bus stations is about NPR400/US$3.

Lodging on the treks

Extra common areas like Everest or Annapurna have fairly good infrastructure and amenities. The extra off the crushed observe you go the much less you may anticipate. Most guesthouses on Everest Base Camp trek or Annapurna Circuit have scorching showers, electrical energy and wi-fi, some have hooked up Western flush bathrooms, some solely exterior squat bathrooms. Normally you pay further for a scorching bathe, wi-fi and charging, typically it’s included within the room value.

Lodging costs depend upon the season and the area. For instance, on the Annapurna Circuit we often paid US$1-2 for 2 folks, typically we stayed free of charge and it included a scorching bathe, wi-fi, and telephone charging. On Everest Base Camp trek lodging is costlier, we paid common NPR 500/US$Four for 2 folks, in Namche Bazar it was NPR 500 per particular person and further for a scorching bathe however charging and wi-fi have been included within the lodging value.

Why is lodging so low-cost?

It’s low-cost in the event you eat at your guesthouse twice (dinner and breakfast). Meals and drinks are the primary revenue for the guesthouse homeowners. For them it’s higher in the event you pay little or no of nothing in any respect for lodging and spend cash on meals. I’d say it’s obligatory to eat at your guesthouse. Should you don’t, room costs improve to NPR 1000-1500/US$8-12. It’s a must to eat someplace anyway. 

Meals on the treks

The kind of meals you’ll be capable of get on a trek will depend on the realm. On the favored treks like Everest Base Camp or the treks within the Annapurna Sanctuary the range of the menu is sort of spectacular. You will get dishes from Indian, Nepalese, Chinese language and Western delicacies. Some locations like Namche Bazar, Manang or Ghandruk even have German bakeries, Italian espresso retailers and pizzerias the place you will get a chunk of chocolate cake, a cinnamon roll, a pizza or a cappuccino. 

Should you stroll extra off the crushed observe routes like Panchse, Mohare Danda or Higher Mustang your meals choices will  be restricted to Dal Bhat, noodles and rice dishes

Should you’re a vegetarian Nepal is an actual paradise for you. Principally each dish you get is vegetarian, meat or fish are nearly nowhere to be discovered. Eggs are the one protein you can get in every single place. For breakfast we often eat boiled, fired or poached eggs with a chapati.

Native specialties

Dal Bhan, in all probability the Nepalese dish that locals eat essentially the most. The principle components of Dal Bhat are boiled rice, lentils, and a few form of veg.curry.

Chapati – native pancake-like skinny bread manufactured from water and flour. We often order it with Dal Bhat, omelet or peanut butter for breakfast.

Tibetan bread – just like chapati however deep-fried, a bit unhealthier however extra filling.

Should you’re a meat eater I’d undoubtedly advocate attempting sukuti, an area model of jerky. At excessive altitudes it’s often dried beef or yak meat. They serve it fried in oil and species, they don’t eat it dry. Yak steaks and burgers are additionally obtainable at some locations however they’re fairly dear in comparison with the opposite meals. 

Momos, an area model of dumplings; the everyday fillings are potatoes, yak cheese or  greens. They’re not very filling. You often get 6-Eight of them however they style actually good.

Sea buckthorn juice – juice manufactured from native berries that claimed to have extra vitamin C than blueberries. It tastes good, a bit bit candy (added sugar).

Yak cheese/yak steak/yak burger – at excessive altitudes yaks are the primary animals, they’re used for transportation (to hold items), for meals (milk, cheese, meat), and for making garments (wool, leather-based).

There are different dishes that I wouldn’t name conventional Nepalese meals quite a novel meals that you just get solely on the treks. Rolls with chocolate bars inside is considered one of them, it’s one of many unhealthiest things within the menu however at excessive altitude you typically really feel like consuming sugary and greasy meals. They take a chocolate bar, often Mars or Sneakers, wrap it in a dough and deep fry it. You could find this I’d name it dessert just about at any guesthouse. One other distinctive and once more greasy dish is a spring roll. This spring roll may be very totally different from the normal one, it’s extra like a deep fried pie. The filling typically is sort of bizarre as nicely, e.g. spaghetti or noodles. You get a giant deep fried pie with spaghetti inside.

One of the best worth for cash meals

Dal Bhat is the perfect dish to order in the event you’re very hungry because it’s principally bottomless. In case your rice or lentils end you may ask to prime it up. I’m unsure what number of instances you may ask however we’ve seen them doing it a number of instances. We noticed solely as soon as on EBC trek (in Phortse) when within the menu it stated Dal Bhat (no refill).

Fried veg. or egg rice, noodles or pasta with cheese and tomato sauce are fairly good worth for cash as nicely the parts are often fairly large. 

Consuming water in Nepal

You’ll be able to’t drink faucet water in Nepal even locals purchase bottled water. We by no means drink unfiltered water when trekking regardless if it comes from a river, a stream or a faucet. Shopping for bottled water on a trek each day is pricey. The upper up you go the costlier it will get, at some locations 1l water bottle prices US$1,5-2. It’s a must to drink 3-4l a day to remain hydrated. One other factor in opposition to shopping for bottled water when trekking is air pollution, you’ll drink 3-Four 1l bottles a day and all these bottles will find yourself someplace within the mountains. 

Utilizing some form of filtration system to purify water is the best way to go. We’ve been utilizing our LifeStraw bottles for the final couple of years. It really works nice, you don’t have to attend, you may put a straw and drink straight from a water supply. We’ve by no means had any abdomen drawback or obtained sick utilizing it. Kathmandu is the one place in Nepal we’ve seen retailers promoting LifeStraw bottles. I feel it was the North Face store in Trivedi Sadak Road in Thamel. There’s a large LifeStraw banner in entrance of the store.

There are different filtration techniques. You need to use chlorine tablets as nicely however they make water style like a swimming pool, fairly disgusting.

Shopping for mountain climbing gear in Nepal

Kathmandu is the perfect place to purchase each pretend and actual gear. In Thamel there are tons of of retailers promoting and renting trekking gear. Most of them supply low-cost pretend stuff however there are a few model retailers like North Face, Mountain Hardwear, the place you should purchase actual stuff and it’s not that costly. Many of the model retailers are on Trivedi Sadak Road in Thamel, subsequent to Himalayan Java Espresso Store (a highly regarded place).

I’d advocate shopping for important gear like mountain climbing sneakers and a backpack at dwelling or at one of many model retailers. Should you do lots of mountain climbing and use your gear typically like us I’d pay extra and purchase gear that can final for a few years. Should you’re an occasional hiker and after doing one trek in Nepal in all probability gained’t hike once more for some time, purchase low-cost pretend gear or lease simply lease the whole lot. Extra particulars on packing for trekking in Nepal you will discover in our packing submit.

Things to do in Nepal moreover trekking

Many individuals go to Nepal principally for trekking however there are numerous different things to do and locations to go to within the nation. Visiting Chitwan Nationwide Park s one of the common actions in Nepal. There you may see wild animals similar to Bengal tigers, elephants, rhinos, and lots of different smaller mammals and birds.

One other common journey to do from Nepal is Bhutan. This closed mountainous nation could be visited solely with an organized tour (often a 2 or 3-day journey) that features transportation, lodging and actions within the nation. A tour to Bhutan is sort of costly, minimal US$100 per particular person per day.  

If you wish to keep in Nepal for some time Pokhara is the perfect place for it. Lakeside, the primary vacationer space within the metropolis, is gorgeous, clear and really quiet, it’s a significantly better place than bustling and polluted Kathmandu. Pokhara is taken into account to be the adventurous capital of Nepal. The Annapurna Sanctuary, the most effective areas for mountain climbing, is only a quick drive from the town. There are different actions that you are able to do from Pokhara from paragliding to white water rafting, from microlight flights to jungle safaris.
