FAQs- Frequently Asked Questions

Trekking to a new place can always be the nerve-wracking disregard of the number of times you might have done it. Every place has its own culture, non-verbal norms and values, government policies and so on.

Having even the basic knowledge about the place can boost your confidence and give you a positive anticipation of the experience you can gain from the place.

If you are looking forward to trek in Nepal, this article will indeed be of great use to refer to. Answered below, are some of the most frequently asked questions about trekking in Nepal.

1.      Is trekking difficult?

The difficulty level of the trek entirely depends upon the trek you chose.

If you happen to be trekking for the first time, or your physical condition does not permit you to (because of age or other medical conditions) you can always look for easy treks.

Easy treks have the shorter number of days, less distance to be walked in a day, and relatively lower altitudes. You do not have to have prior experience or knowledge to trek to these places.

If you are the adventurer and are looking for some thrill, you have plenty of options to choose from. Difficult treks have the longer number of days. You will have to walk for 5-7hrs a day on an average and these treks are mostly situated in high altitudes. These treks also demand a good level of physical fitness.

Unlike other product, trekking is not about more for the better. The difficulty level has got nothing to do with the experience you can gain from a trek.

Go for what you want to and what your physical ability will allow you to. Do not push yourself too hard. Trekking is not a competition. It's relaxation.

2.      Is trekking expensive?

This entirely depends upon how much you are willing to spend on your trek. You can trek luxuriously by spending lavishly or you can backpack. It all depends upon how much your bank balance allows you to.

You will get accommodation for as less as 3-4$ per night, or you can pay up to 60-1004 per night for luxury resorts. On an average, you will need not more than 10$ for a meal. If you are looking for economical places, you can eat 3 meals for 10$! But eating at such places come at a great cost of low hygiene rate.

Bottom line: Nepal is not an expensive place when it comes to tourism. It is probably one of the places you can have the most economical luxury trek comparing to what a luxury trek would otherwise cost in your country!

3.      What preparations should I make before trekking?

It is always a good idea to involve yourself in doing physical exercises before trekking. Not that you have to be all athletic and muscular to trek. An average level of physical fitness will make the journey less stressful.

Ending up with sore muscles, blisters, joint pain, and back pain can be very discomforting while trekking. This is unlikely to happen if you exercise beforehand.

Start exercising at least a month before the trek. You can do cardio exercises like running, jogging, long walks, cycling and swimming. Carry a light backpack along with you to get used to it. Gym works out can be a good option too. Just don’t over-do it.

If you are going on an easy trek, you need not be very physically fit. But prior exercising is still a good option. You will only make your journey more comfortable.

4.      What are the things I need to pack?

There is a long list of things you will need for trekking. The things you carry can affect the entire experience of your journey. So make sure that while purchasing any gear, make no compromisation on the quality or the brand of the equipment.

Some of the equipment are listed below:

  • Lightweight trainers/shoes for wear in lodges.
  • Waterproof jacket.
  • Waterproof trousers.
  • Fleece jacket.
  • Best Down jacket
  • Fleece/sweater
  • Light-weight fleece or wool vests.
  • Long or short-sleeved shirt; often more comfortable to wear than a fleece vest or T-shirt.
  • Warm hiking trousers.
  • Underwear.
  • Warm hat (can be purchased in Kathmandu for a couple of pounds).
  • Wide rimmed sun hat.
  • A good quality Ultra-light Backpacking Sleeping Bags that is comfort temperature up to -15 degree Celsius.. It is not necessary to carry ultra-light backpacking sleeping bags but ultra-light will reduce the backpack weight.
  • 2 – 3 pairs good quality walking socks.
  • Warm gloves or mitts.
  • Large rucksack or Duffel bag. (55 to 70 litres)
  • Rucksack liner or the thick bin bag.
  • Day sack. (25 to 40 litres)
  • Dark sunglasses.
  • High factor sun-cream.
  • Lip balm preferably with sun bloc.
  • Ear plugs. (Walls in lodges are very thin)
  • Head torch/torch and spare batteries.
  • 1 litre 2 water bottle.
  • Water purification kit. (On trek you will need to drink 3 – 4 litres of fluids each day)
  • Toiletries.
  • Small hand towel. (Do not bring the large towel. They are bulky and heavy)
  • Toilet paper. (You can buy poor quality paper along the route)


5.      Do I need special permission to trek?

You will not need trekking permits in any of the treks in the Everest region, the Annapurna region and also in the Langtang region. But you will have to pay entry fees while entering a conservation area or a national park.

Trekking permits are a must for trekking in the restricted regions. The permits are available for purchase in the department of immigration located in Dillibazaar, Kathmandu. For further information, refer to-


6.      Is drinking water easily available?

Availability of drinking water is not the problem. The problem is the cost of it at higher altitude. As you gain height, the price of water rises up to 2-3$ per litre.

An alternative way of getting drinking water is by having your water bottles filled in tea houses. Tea houses will provide you with boiled water for about 0.4-0.7$ per litre. They are completely safe for drinking.

Therefore, do not forget to take at least two water bottles with you.

7.      What kind of food is available during trekking?

Food is not of any concern while trekking. You will get all kinds of cuisines. For breakfast, tea houses will provide you with eggs cooked in your preferred style along with pan cakes, bread butter, roti, and so on.

Various other dishes like pizza, pasta, momo, chowmein and many more are also available. The most preferred dish is Dal Bhaat. It is a typical Nepali meal. Rice is served with vegetable curry, lentils, tomato chutney and meat curry. The best part- an extra helping will no cost you extra! The meal is highly nutritional. It will also keep you fueled for long walks.

8.      What kind of accommodation should I expect?

Accommodation depends upon the type of trekking you are going for. There are two types of trekking

1.      Teahouse trekking:

You will be spending your night in tea houses. Tea houses are local lodges and hotels. They are small and comfortable enough. Most rooms are shared with two small cots that have mattress, pillows and sheets. If you need spare blankets, you can always ask for it. The rooms have attached bathroom, western flush designed and shower. You will have to pay for hot shower and electricity.

Dormitories are also available and a very low cost of about 3-4$ per night. These come with common toilets and bathrooms.

The cleanliness of the rooms may not live up to your expectations. Bring your own pillow if possible. Conjunctivitis is a common case you might fall sick of.

2.      Camp treks

In this type, you will spend your nights in tented camps. Such treks mostly lie in the restricted regions. These regions do not have enough facilities to accommodate many people.


9.      What are the risks associated with trekking?

Trekking is an extreme sport and does come with a lot of risks. Some unavoidable risks are an avalanche, heavy rainfall, earthquake, landslide and other such natural calamities.

You might fall and injure yourself or catch some viral flue. The deadliest risk of trekking is AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness. This sickness occurs when a great altitude is gained and the body fails to adjust to the changing pressures associated with it. Anyone can fall a victim of the sickness and if not treated in time, it can be fatal.

10. How to avoid Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)?

There is absolutely nothing you can do to prepare your body for altitude sickness. But you can take few precautionary measures to avoid it. They are-

  1. Attain height gradually and slowly
  2. As you cross over 2000meters, reduce your number of walking hours and walk slow
  3. Drink plenty of water
  4. Take ample rest. Take more rest if you feel like your body is asking for it
  5. Eat high caloric food
  6. Avoid smoking or drinking

11. How to diagnose AMS?

In order to detect AMS, you need to be aware of the symptoms of them. They are-

  1. A headache
  2. Nausea and vomiting
  3. Dizziness
  4. Tiredness
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Upset stomach
  7. Feeling unsteady
  8. Shortness of breath
  9. Increased heart rate
  10. Difficulty sleeping

If you notice any of the symptoms, take immediate precautionary measures such as:

  1. Do not climb any higher for the next 48 hours
  2. Descend to a lower altitude if possible
  3. Take complete rest until you feel well
  4. Do not exercise
  5. Do not smoke
  6. Drink plenty of water
  7. Take external oxygen supply if necessary
  8. Take anti-sickness medicines

If you see no further improvement in your heath within the next 48 hours, you will have to be deported to Kathmandu in a helicopter. Therefore, do not forget to issue and insurance that will cover you helicopter reuse cost.

12. Do I need a guide/porter to trek?

There is no such hard and fast rule that you must have one. But it is highly advisable to travel with them. Some of the treks cannot trek without a guide most of them are the restricted ones.

A guide is someone who will help you with navigations. He will also have a better idea about the places to live in and eat at can negotiated prices for you. They will also help you during medical emergencies.

A porter is someone who will carry your load for you so that you can enjoy long walks.

In case you hire them, you are entirely responsible for providing them with trekking gears, food and accommodation and other medical facilities.

Guide/porter as also available these days. These are people who play the role of both a guide and a porter. Hiring them will save you from bearing an additional cost.

13. Can I trek solo?

In some places, yes. But trekking solo in the restricted area is completely forbidden. You will have to trek in a group.

A lot of people trek solo in Nepal and have thoroughly enjoyed. Trekking solo has its own benefits. You will not have to adjust your schedule according to anyone. You can also follow your own route as you wish to. Also, finding your way, especially in the non-restricted regions, is very easy. The routes are well marked and pretty straight.

Nepal is completely safe for solo trekkers. But you will also have to be a little more careful while travelling alone.

14. What is the difference between trekking independently and trekking with an agency?

Trekking independently means trekking without an agency. You can hire a guide or a porter if you want to. You may also have a trekking partner. But the entire journey depends upon the way you want to take it.

In treks organized by agencies, they will have a well-planned schedule designed for you which you will have to strictly follow. Most of the times, you will be travelling with a group. The agency will also provide you with a guide and a porter. Trekking with an agency will be a little more expensive than trekking independently or solo.

15. Which is the best season to trek in Nepal?

Every season as its own charm. However, the best seasons are spring lasting from April to May and autumn lasting from September to November.

In this two season, Nepal sees the maximum number of tourists who come to trek. These are the busiest months of the year. The weather is highly pleasant and favourable for long walks. The trails are blossoming with fresh leaves and flowers. The clear skies allow you to get a great view of the magnificent Himalayas.

Scary yet beautiful ride

Traveling to Everest Base Camp on a helicopter, just imagine my excitement and nervousness level. This collaboration with Exciting Nepal was one hell of a roller coaster ride.

Everyone suggested that Helicopter landing as the best and fastest option to reach Everest Base Camp. I had limited time so I chose the helicopter rather than trekking. Now writing this review I can feel that I made the right decision.

From Kathmandu, the helicopter took off to land in Kala Pattar. The scenery, landscape, and settlements seen from the window are beyond explanations. You are above the clouds, feel like you are on the top of the world looking through the creation. The helicopter lands first at Lukla for refueling and departs towards Kala Pattar.

The flight was smooth and team members were friendly. They explained all the minute details about this place. The view from Kala Pattar is really hard to describe, it was a moment to live. The 360-degree view of Everest and surrounding mountains will mesmerize you. If you were trekking to reach here then it would take you more than a week. But, through a helicopter, you will reach here within a few minutes.

We took lots of photos and kept forever in our memories. It was not something that you experience in your regular life. It was much more than surreal experience and thank you Mr. Subash and his team for making this ride exciting. The cabin crew members were professional and understanding. Exciting Nepal is certainly one of the best in traveling business. Every money we spent was worthy enough after the views and hospitality of the company.

Fantastic helicopter return trip

Well, what an experience. I went on an Everest base camp trek last month. I had been dreaming of EBC for many years but I wasn’t sure if I would be able to complete such tough trekking routes. Then I contacted Exciting Nepal and told them my situation. They were so easy to communicate with. Considering my situation they offered me EBC return back by helicopter package. This package was perfect for me.

As for the trek itself, it was fantastic and the views of the Everest region were stunning. Of course, the scenery is wonderful but the tour itself was excellent. I returned back to Kathmandu by helicopter. I got to enjoy the beaten routes as well as the aerial view.

Everest Base Camp

My partner and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek with Exciting Nepal in October 2019.We had a fantastic time and would wholeheartedly recommend Exciting Nepal. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a good experience, and were extremely organised and professional.

These points are just a few examples of why we were so impressed:
– With bad weather and flights cancelled to Lukla, Mr Subash was able to organise a helicopter at the last minute in order for us to start our trek on time.
– Our guide Suman was amazing- knowledgeable, attentive, patient, organised and fun. He was also very experienced which ensured us getting to locations in time in order to maximise photo opportunities, make use of good weather, stay at preferred hotels, avoid large groups of people and fine tune our itineraries. Suman demonstrated great passion for the Himalayas which was inspirational. We cannot thank Suman enough for our wonderful trip to EBC!
– We also had a fantastic porter Yadab who was very kind, informative and helpful – it was as though we were actually given 2 guides and we felt very lucky!
– Exciting Nepal back in Kathmandu office was in regular phone contact with our guides so any issues were communicated well and promptly resolved.
– Everything was perfectly organised from the moment we stepped off the plane in Kathmandu, to when we were dropped back at the airport to fly back to Sydney.
– The itinerary was devised to suite us and could have been readily adapted for someone slower or faster etc.
– We felt completely safe the whole time (except perhaps flying out of Lukla!!! : O )- though my partner did love this and the views were spectacular.
– It was intimate with just my partner, myself, Suman our guide, and Yadab our porter- which was exactly what we hoped for.

The trek itself was phenomenally beautiful.

Everest Base Camp trek return back by Helicopter

We have booked 8 days’ trek to the Everest Base Camp with Exciting Nepal treks. The trek was just fantastic with Guide Basu and Porter Sunil. We had a rest day in Namche and Dingboche, We liked much more Dingboche where we can walk to the Island peak base camp and Chhukng valley, what an amazing walking. Guide Basu was so knowledgeable and helpful, We have hiked up to Kalapatthar as well as Everest Base camp which was our goal, what an amazing views. We had picked up from Gorekshep and land at the Lukla for one hour more or less but we liked it. We went to Lukla airport inside and took the picture of Signboard LUKLA AIRPORT.

Thank you so much Exciting Nepal for helping out for achieving our goal. We are so happy to recommend your service for the Everest Base Camp Trek,

Exciting Nepal – thank you for making my EBC dream come true

Wow. Where to start. This trip was life changing and it would not have been possible without Subash, Basu, and the whole team at Exciting Nepal. Thank you.

The quick version for busy travelers:
Exciting Nepal makes Nepal adventure dreams come true. Their guide Basu is one of the best I’ve ever had and along with our porters Singman and Ngima we had a team that literally lifted our spirits and felt like a family – critical vibes for what is a physically and mentally taxing adventure near to the top of the world. If EBC is on your list (or really anywhere in Nepal is including ABC), Exciting Nepal needs to be who you book with and Basu needs to be your guide.

A bit longer:
First, if you’re reading this review and have any hesitation booking with a local agency – put that aside. Exciting Nepal is special. Subash and his team are world class and exceeded our expectations on every front from on the ground excellence, to safety and attentiveness. They are constantly working the trails and have a dynamic network to get the best real time information. They also have great relationships with the helicopter companies for immediate rescue and extraction – so you always know you’re safe and have the option should you ever need it.

But what’s travel without heart and story? That’s where our guide Basu led our small group with energy, passion, professionalism and unique domain knowledge up and down the trail that only comes with 10 years of experience leading trekkers across the country. Basu is everything a mountain guide should be. He’s constantly making sure his group is learning and having a good time – while simultaneously making sure everyone is safe and optimally healthy. His sense of optimism is contagious. He knows when to gently push people to achieve their goals and when to protect health and well-being. He is trained in helicopter rescue, so he is a trusted resource for literally every part of the EBC experience. The love and respect that teahouse owners and other guides show him on the trail is testament to his character, his energy and leadership style.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention our

porters – the sometimes silent heroes of any Nepal adventure. Our porters Singman and Ngima matched the energy and positivity of Basu and made the difference every day as we trekked to higher and higher altitudes.

I always felt cared for – but more importantly, I always felt the energy and guidance from Basu and team to overcome any obstacle and achieve my dream.

My thanks to Basu, Subash and team cannot be overstated.

And I’m excited for you, TripAdvisor reader and potential future EBC trekker, to experience what I experienced with Exciting Nepal.

10 Star Experience! No need to search further – go with Exciting Nepal!

As someone who has traveled to over 200 countries and partnered with numerous international climbing and tour companies, I hold a very high bar in terms of the level of service, expertise, professionalism and value for money I expect. Subash, the owner of Exciting Nepal, and his team far exceeded my expectations. My friend and I booked the Everest Base Camp with helicopter return. From the moment I made my first inquiry with Subash, I knew I had made the right decision. I extensively researched and reached out to numerous companies both in the US and locally in Nepal. Unlike other companies, Subash was extremely responsive throughout the process, patiently answering my laundry list of questions and providing expert recommendations based on my personal preferences and goals. Every aspect of the program was extremely well organized and executed flawlessly from start to finish. Unlike other companies which are purely “transactional” and impersonal, it’s clear that Subash and his team deeply and genuinely care about each and everyone of their clients – it was as if we were welcomed into a family. What is not apparent from the website is the fact that Exciting Nepal is the primary point of contact and logistics provider for mountain rescues – when you book with them, you should know that you have immediate and direct access to rescue resources unlike other companies who would have to reach out to Exciting Nepal for assistance! As you can imagine, this is something you don’t want to compromise on.

Our trekking guide, Basu, was truly exceptional and went above and beyond to make our trek a dream come true. Basu was absolutely meticulous about ensuring every small detail was taken care of from start to finish and was incredibly caring and thoughtful – continually checking in on us and constantly motivating us with his positivity and upbeat attitude. He is an incredibly experienced guide and his passion for guiding and sharing the beauty of the mountains with others is an inspiration. Our days were filled with laughter and smiles and he created a uniquely warm and welcoming environment from the moment we said “good morning” and until we said “good night” every evening. Basu provided invaluable guidance on every aspect of our trek ranging from food recommendations to dressing appropriately for the changing weather conditions. Our porters Singman and Nyman, were also incredible and their strength and fortitude are nothing short of jaw-dropping. Along with Basu, they were constantly looking out for us and we felt so cared for. It was like spending time with a wonderful group of friends.

I can’t recommend Exciting Nepal highly enough. I’m someone who has extremely high standards and Subash and his team far exceeded my expectations. Don’t waste your time booking with companies located outside of Nepal and paying triple the price of a paper pushing middleman – go to the source of expertise on the ground. Exciting Nepal truly sets the benchmark others should strive for with deep expertise is based on years of accumulated experience. I was so impressed with their level of customer service and expertise. I will continue to recommend them and make them my go-to guide service for any travel in the region.
