Trekking Days are designed so that the walking is enjoyable and safe. Typically, our trekking holidays involves 4 -8 hours of hiking per day, including a lunch stop. The trail varies from easy hiking on the lower elevation to strenuous walking over 5000 meters in the Himalaya Mountains. The day begins early at around 6.30 in the morning with a cup of tea. Before breakfast is the best time to pack your items not needed during the day into duffle bag keeping the essentials or items you wish to access throughout the day in your daypack. After breakfast, we are usually on the trail by 8.00 am. Lunch is around 12 pm and is generally 1-2 hour break. We reach our camp or teahouse by 4 pm as the afternoon walk is generally shorter than the morning. The time from arriving at the teahouse or campsite until dinner is your free time. There is always tea available, and sometimes side trips are available. Dinner is normally served around 7.00 pm. A common misconception is that if you are a slow walker you may hold people back – NOT SO. The group members often string out and there will be an hour or two between the first to arrive and the last. You walk at your own pace and stop when you feel like it. There will be always our trekking Sherpas, guides and porters at the front and the rear ensuring no one gets lost.

Himalayan Summit is a professionally managed trekking company based in Nepal, we have a policy of employing competent local trekking group leaders and guides. They are fluent in English and have undergone extensive courses in both guiding and health and safety including but not limited to wilderness first aid, mountaineering, eco-trekking training etc. Our team has had a year’s trip leading experience and are highly dedicated to providing quality programming. Much of our team has had working experience with international adventure travel companies.

We offer an open choice menu in our teahouse trekking programs where you can select the food you like for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Your guide is available to assist you with menu selection and is there to ensure the food is hygienic, plentiful and nutritious. Most teahouses offer a variety of rice and noodle dishes, as well as seasonal vegetables. A variety of cereals, bread and egg dishes are generally available for breakfast. Properly boiled water is served for drinking during the breakfast and dinner meals.

We have our own experienced trekking cook on all of our camping trips. We adhere to strict hygienic guidelines to ensure our food served during the camping portion of the trek is properly prepared. To start the day, breakfast consists of a choice of porridge, muesli, and cereal followed by eggs either fried or scrambled eggs with chapattis or bread. Lunch is generally a selection of salad, cooked vegetable dishes, pasta and traditional bread. Dinner is a hearty 3-course meal: soup, followed by a variety of vegetables, meat, rice, and pasta dishes and completed with a simple dessert. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided at all meals. We use as much fresh produce as possible and special diets are regularly catered for. Please communicate any dietary restrictions or special request to our staff when booking your adventure. Properly boiled water is served for drinking.

We book clean and comfortable teahouses which we have developed long and successful relationships with. Our standard trips are based on twin bedded with shared accommodations. We can book a private room for you if you like, which will incur an additional cost.

We discourage buying plastic bottled water because there is no proper disposal system in place and discarded water bottles cause an environmental and aesthetic concern in the backcountry. Therefore, we will provide properly boiled water to refill your water bottles and when serving hot drinks in camp or at the teahouse. Your guide is very concerned for your health and well-being and thus oversees all water processes.

We can offer top quality service and facilities at a competitive price because we do not operate overseas offices and thus do not incur the cost of such.

Fitness is perhaps the key factor in the trek. Most people of average fitness for their age can complete our trekking programs. It is important not only to have the most enjoyable experience but for your safety that you are both medically cleared for our programs by your doctor, and have embarked on a training program prior to leaving on our program. With that said, on all our treks you are encouraged to take your time, set your own pace and enjoy the surroundings. Most first-time trekkers are concerned that they won’t keep up. They soon discover that a steady and moderate pace will ensure an enjoyable trek, and have the energy for the duration of the trek. Trekking is not a walking competition. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it, and you will have enough energy for extra activities. The best preparation for trekking is a program that includes both cardio exercises with moderate resistance training. It is also helpful to take day hikes at least once a week gradually progressing in distance and elevation gain to simulate some of which you will encounter on the trek.

We are committed to the welfare of our staff from the trek leaders and guides to Sherpas, cooks, and porters. We ensure good wages, salary, and proper insurance. We provide the proper equipment and clothing needed for all our staff, including porters. Each one of our staff is an integral part of our programs.

You need general travel insurance which includes both cancellation insurance, as well as rescue insurance. Read your policy’s fine print to make sure it covers you for trekking and/or climbing, depending on what trip you have booked, and that it covers you for helicopter evacuation.

In the case of a serious medical emergency or in the unlikely event of a casualty, we will coordinate rapid medical evacuation procedures. Since you are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred in any evacuation please make sure that it is covered by your insurance.

Himalayan Summit trip itineraries have been professionally designed to minimize the effects of high altitude. However, many will feel some basic symptoms of the change in altitude. Your guides are medically trained to know these symptoms and if they are progressing to a more dangerous and serious condition. It is important to be a participant in your own safety and report any ill effects to your guide as soon as possible so they may make assessments as to your condition. Extensive medical kits are carried on all our trips, and your guides are trained in the use of all the equipment. In addition, we carry a Portable Altitude Chamber which is designed to mimic air pressure at lower altitudes. Our guides are trained in wilderness medicine and adhere to international standards and have a duty of care to you, the client.

Safety is our top priority. All of our trekking group leaders and guides have undertaken the Wilderness First Aid Medical Course and have years of experience in planning, organizing, and executing a well-designed program focused on safety. We carry Portable Altitude Chamber (hyperbaric bag) along with a comprehensive medical kit. We plan adventure travel trips so that safety and comfort are not compromised.

Definitely! Our airport representatives will greet you at the airport to welcome you and transfer you to your hotel. Do check the Himalayan Summit clipboard on your arrival in Kathmandu airport outside the arrival terminal hall. Make sure you have provided your flight details to us in advance.

Trekking in Nepal Himalayas is an adventure holiday and thus please do not expect a shower each day. Hot showers are sometimes available, however, we strongly discourage the use of hot water due to the fact that it is usually heated with wood, and deforestation due to tree cutting is an environmental crisis in many Himalayan places.

You will be carrying your day pack with warm clothes, drinking water, snacks, sun block, camera and any other personal items you wish to access throughout the day. Generally, your daypack will be around 5 kilograms.

Most airlines fly directly from many Asian and Middle Eastern countries, however, there are no direct flights from most western countries.

All our trips itineraries have an arrival and departure day from Kathmandu built in to allow for rest from your journeys on both ends of the programs. You are also welcome and encouraged to arrive a day earlier or leave Nepal a day later to have a look around the vibrant Kathmandu valley. Himalayan Summit arranges airport transfers, hotel bookings or any extra activities as required.

Almost every teahouse has electrical outlets in the rooms for recharging. For camera batteries, there may be a cost of usually about 2-3 US$ per hour for re-charging. We use the 220-240 volts to power their appliances and two point’s plugs are recommended to bring.

Trekking poles can certainly be helpful. They can help shift some of the stress of descent especially off of your knees and onto your upper body. Many fine trekking poles to be beneficial for the trek, but they are not required.

Yes. There are dozens of trekking shops in the Thamel area of Kathmandu. Our trekking guide and representatives will be happy to assist you on this matter if needed.

If you want to take your phone with you, there is a good chance that it will work in most major cities. Please discuss this with your phone company prior to leaving for your adventure to see what the rates are and if you have an international calling and texting plan. You can also get the local mobile SIM card in Kathmandu.

It is notoriously difficult to predict the weather condition in the Himalayas. With that said, in general days may be warm and nights are cold. You can expect some snow or rain storms at times. Between 1000 and 3500 meters the temperature could be as high as 20°C to 5°C at the low end. At higher altitudes, the temperature ranges from 20°C to -10°C. During winter it is around 10°C colder.

Tipping is an accepted part of trekking although it is a completely personal matter. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Budgeting up to 10 % of the trek is a good estimate.

Trekking peaks is a permit classification, and are the least expensive permits for climbing. They are also peaks that have been classified as having the least amount of technical climbing to reach the summit. Generally, these peaks can be done in a day from a high camp to the summit and back to high camp on the same day. The routes we use are chosen for their objective safety, involve easy angled snow slopes, straightforward ridges and occasionally minor scrambling. You will be using crampons, an ice axe, harnesses, fixed ropes, etc. for ascending and descending. We will introduce, review, demonstrate and provide ample time to practice all the skills required for the climbing. Trekking Peaks are carefully designed to deliver an exciting opportunity to climb a Himalayan peak while providing proper acclimatization. These treks are open to fit, determined walkers who have previously undertaken ‘strenuous’ treks; previous mountaineering experience is an advantage but not essential.
