Trekking  in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal

  Trekking in Nepal is the most popularly sought activities. Thousands of Tourists from all around the world come to Nepal as an ultimate destination for trekking – an adventure holidays from easy to challenging base camp treks. In other words, Nepal is a trekking paradise as her varied terrain offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

Trekking in simple word is walking. However, the word trekking has become better known for the kind of walking which takes you along trails winding up, down, over and around mountains. Trekking is not mountaineering although some of the popular trails are used by mountaineering expeditions to get to their base camps. Most of the trails you will walk on are still used predominantly by Nepali people for everyday travel and trade. Hence, it is not uncommon to meet Nepali porters carrying lengths of corrugated roofing iron slung from a jute strap (Namlo) around the head or a sick relative being carried in a basket (Doko) in the same manner to the nearest medical facility.
 
Nepal Trekking offers the best way of experiencing country and its people ‘warts and all’. You will walk through the streets of cities, villages and past the open front doors of houses, and see the people at their daily tasks. The clouds forming below you and the magnificent peaks of mountains towering over you gives you a feeling of wandering in a real heaven.
 
By trekking you will be involved in a way you could never be in a car, bus, train or aero plane; you can enjoy the friendliness of the people, feel the magnetism of the mountains, culture and nature all at one place enshrining peace within yourself. Could you ask or want for anything more?
A trekking trip can be any length you choose. There are a number of short treks around Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys which only take a day to complete. There are two or three day treks or treks from a week to a month. For those with longer period of time can combine a number of treks and spend months just walking around.  Skylark Treks and Expeditions Pvt. ltd. Nepal can help you to put together a trek to suit your needs at an affordable price leaving you free of any confused traveling, bureaucratic or logistic hassles.
 
Trekking grading System

We Sky Lark Treks and Expedition developed a trip grading system to help you match your level of fitness and aspirations with a trip that will complement both. If you’ve never trekked before,

we recommend that you not be overly ambitious. Try a short trek and see if you enjoy it. That said, we acknowledge that trekking experience counts less than your motivation and physical condition.

If you really want to get to Everest base camp, and are fit enough to do so, you’ll get there. Good health and spirit of adventure will carry you far. A complete dossier on your trek will be sent after we receive your initial deposit and booking confirmation.

If you are uncertain which trek is best for you, we strongly recommend requesting complete trek dossiers before you book. The descriptions below are meant to serve as a rough guide only.

Trip grade are based on length, altitude, and remoteness, walking conditions, weather and other factors. It is impossible to be precise about how hard a trek is grading provides a way for you to compare different treks. Remember that all trekking makes some physical demands. Don’t expect that because a trek is graded easy you will never feel tired.

Walking days are usually between 6 to 8 hours although there may be some longer days for pass-crossing or similar. Previous trekking experience is desirable but not essential if you are confident of your physical condition.
