Even on an easy trek, the trekkers will require to walk
about 5 to 6 hours daily on uneven terrain and therefore
they must be used to regular exercise. Those with any
cardiac or pulmonary history are required to obtain
their physician's clearance before participating on any
form of trekking. They are definitely not advised to
participate in high altitude or strenuous treks.
Mental preparedness for trek is equally important and a
subject very few give thought to. It is important to
remember, our people especially in the mountains have
different values and attitudes than those of the western
world. They should therefore, accept this as a part of a
trekking holiday experience. Approaching the mountains
with preconceived ideas or values and attitudes is not
advisable and could lead to disappointments during
We offer a choice of camping treks in Nepal, Tibet &
Bhutan. It is managed and operated by a group of
dedicated and experienced people who are not only well
versed in the adventure travel service business but are
also committed to conserving our natural and cultural
diversity and heritage. Our organization is well
equipped, offers optimum safety and provides guides who
have first hand knowledge of the routes, natural history
& cultural background of all areas we operate in.
A Typical Day On Trek
The day begins around 6am with bed tea and a large bowl
of warm water for a wash. Then breakfast consisting of
porridge, eggs, toast/pancake and tea/coffee is served.
While participants are having breakfast, the Sherpa crew
will bring down their tents. Hence, they should pack up
their duffel bags & rucksacks before sitting for
breakfast. By 8am they will be on the way to take
advantage of the cool mornings to accomplish most of the
day's hike. All they need to carry in their daypack are
water bottle, rain/wind jacket, camera, medicine,
valuables and other small items they may need on the
trail. Each day’s hike is planned so that trekkers have
time to see, photograph and explore the countryside.
Anyone with good health, enjoys the outdoors and hiking
will qualify to participate in our treks.
Lunch is usually served by noon, which will consist of a
light hot meal. After hiking for three to four hours in
the afternoon our camp, is generally reached between
3-4pm. In the evening they can relax, wash, read or take
a walk nearby.
Tents are put up much before sunset and soon after
dinner is served, which is more elaborate consisting of
hot soup, a variation of rice/potato/noodles and usually
a meat item followed by a sweet pudding and hot tea.
Bedtime is always early and a much welcome pleasure.
After dinner the guide will brief them on the
next day's route and programme.
