  14. What is the weather and temperature like in trekking?

    One of the most unpredictable elements of the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri region is the weather. If you’re not properly prepared for the twists, turns and volatility of the conditions that can occur in this breathtaking region, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant situation. Here are some weather basics to help ensure that you come to the Himalayas as well equipped and prepared to face anything. Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime hours in the Himalayan region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. During the day, the thermometer could reach temps as high as 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), only to dip down as low as -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F) in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the month and season.

    Spring – March / April / May / June
    Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri region, although because of this, it can become somewhat crowded. One can meet many other Everest climbers during this season and base camp is full of tents. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen and the many different species of flower are visible in the lower altitude. During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum of 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

    July / August Through Mid-September is Monsoon Season
    This season is not really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes, below 3500 meters. In areas above 4000 meters, it rains sometimes and although it is also sometimes dry, very few people travel during this season. There are positive sides of trekking during the monsoon months as the excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it’s also the best season to avoid the crowds. During springtime, the average temperature is 22 degrees C (71.6 Degrees F), with a maximum of 30 degrees C (86 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -5 degrees C (23 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

    Autumn – End of September / October / November
    Similar to springtime, autumn in the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri region is also a crowded season, but it’s one of the best times to trek. While it lacks the beauty of flowers, the clear blue sky can be seen, affording incredible views from just about every angle. The average temperature during the fall is 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters’ altitude.

    Winter- December/ January/ February
    Winter start from mid-December till mid-February. People still like to trek in this month due to fewer crowds. View is still good but foggy so having extra days is highly recommended during this period. The average temperature during the winter is 10 degrees C (50 Degrees F), with a maximum temp of 17 degrees C (62.6 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F), in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters’ altitude. The above temperature is based on outside of the guesthouse temperature. No need to worry about the cold temperature as we provide the sleeping bag plus the extra blanket to make sure our clients are warm enough during the time of need.

     

  15. What is the best session for this trekking?

    Our trekking season extends from mid- September to May. From early September the monsoonal rains decrease. By end of September through to December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights. February, March, April, May, June, October, November, December are the best time to do trek in Nepal. From July to mid-September is raining season in Nepal.

  16. What is your cancellation policy?

    Cancellation notice is required, minimum of 20 days prior to trip departure. If the reason is valid the Trip shall then be termed as cancelled and the cancellation charge of 30% of the trip amount would be deducted from the advance paid.

USD 15 to USD 20 per person a day will be enough to buy bottles of water, chocolates, pay for the hot shower and a few drinks during the trekking. Please note, higher you go the things would be expensive especially at higher altitude; all the goods are supplied either by helicopter, horse, mules or porters therefore  things are more expensive.

    Bottled water is easily available at the lodges and teahouses. You can buy bottled water at the cost of USD 2 at lower elevations to USD 4 to higher elevation per liter. More higher, it would be more expensive. If you are planning to drink normal water, purifying water with any sort of purification tablets or drop is a must. One can purchase purification tablets or iodine in Kathmandu.

  23. If I am vegetarian, is that a problem?

    No problem at all because mostly, the lodges in the Everest region serve the vegetarian meals. We always recommend our clients to eat vegetarian meals to avoid the food poisoning, eating heavy meals and non- vegetarian meals at the high altitude is not really safe for the stomach.

  24. Is the food in mountain prepare to international standard in terms of safety?

    Most teahouses (lodges) in Trekking region trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat (white rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard.

I read reviews on Trip Advisor regarding Nepal Travels & Expedition prior to booking my trip for the Annapurna Circuit trek. I was impressed with how fast they responded to my emails. The itinerary listed was spot on. Everyone I met from Nepal Travels Team were friendly and very helpful. My guide, Yam (pronounced Yim) was very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. He made sure I understood what to expect throughout our trek in terms of the terrain, weather and length time to get from village to village, etc. He also gauged my physical abilities and attentive to my needs throughout my stay. Dhan was my porter, he was very friendly, polite and considerate. I was impressed by his strength and abilities to carry my bag up and down the mountain trails with ease. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Nepal Travels & Expedition to anyone I know and I will definitely use them in the future as Nepal has so much to see and offer.
