Trekking in Nepal: Some good things to know before you go!

bhutan-prayer-wheels

Helpful tips for planning your trek in Nepal

1. Planned contingency days
Whether planning your own trek or arranging a trip through a tour operator, please be sure to schedule in 2 to 3 contingency days. The internal flights to Lukla, Jomsom, Pokhara, Taplejung and other areas in Nepal can and will get delayed and cancelled. The last thing you need is to miss your international connection out of Kathmandu! By including a few extra days to your trip will guarantee some piece of mind and some down time before the long-haul flight back home. One big advantage of working through a tour operator is that they (on your behalf) can facilitate a booking on the next available flight back to Kathmandu. Remember: if your flight is cancelled on one day you don’t get priority the next day. The people with tickets for that day do.

Village scene on the Snow Leopard Trek in Upper Dolpo, Nepal.Greetings All,

After spending 3 nights in Shey it was time to leave and continue our trek in the Dolpa District of Nepal.

What to expect on a trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal

Small train of yaks descending from Everest Base CampAfter 28 years of traveling to Nepal there is one thing I have learned very well…people’s expectations and reality can only meet once they land in Kathmandu.

Despite our best attempts to prepare people for their trekking trip, there will always be a sense of uncertainty and unanswered questions. Looking through guide books, blogs and other related articles can not prepare you for the sights, sounds and smells of Nepal.
