Trekking in Nepal?
So, you are in Nepal and don’t trek is just impossible however if you want to trek, you need to manage the Trekking permit & TIMS CARD (Trekkers Management Information System) It’s a permit card for all over the country except for some remote treks like (mustang, Dolpa, and Kanchenjunga). Also, you need to register at the Nepal tourism office but if you travel with any trekking agency, they will do everything so you don’t need to worry about it.
When should you trek?
Check the best time to trek in Nepal because most of the time it could be slippery and also crowded. So, if you want you can trek during the spring seasons while the temperature is not so hot and not so cold but just perfect. Also, for all the necessary hiking gear make sure to visit Thamel (the hiking cloth capital of the world). Buy things that are only essential and warm. Do not spend unnecessarily. If possible, take the guide with you.
Additional things that you need to know to make sure you travel in a group if you are a first-time traveler. Altitude sickness is no joke, so be patient enough for acclimatization and take a perfect balance of rest and hike. Most importantly Mc Donald’s do not exist here so the food that you should not miss is the authentic Daal Bhaat treat and other cultured food and momo is a must. Be respectful and behave politely. We Nepali treat guest as a god, so be sure enough to leave your good prints here. Enjoy.
