February, March, April, May, June, September, October, November and December are typically for trekking in Nepal.

It is ok if I have never trekked in Nepal before.

TMG does not expect previous trekking experience from you; however, all the treks that it organizes are physically demanding. It recommends starting an exercise prior to your trek date. Many of its trips are at higher altitude, the minimum is 2,000 m, and the max is 5,000 m plus.

Altitude mountain sickness

It is a sickness caused due to lack of oxygen at an altitude of 2000 m plus. Please read up extensively on Altitude sickness. Be familiar with the symptoms and do not ignore them. Be sure to keep to a conservative ascent schedule and drink plenty of fluids. If you or anyone in your party begins to experience symptoms of acute mountain sickness (AMS), do not ascend any further, and if they do not improve, then descend to a lower altitude. Carry some Diamox (acetazolamide) pills, easily found in pharmacies in Nepal. Diamox forces the kidneys to excrete bicarbonate in the urine, therefore making the blood more acidic, which stimulates breathing, increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood. But note that Diamox is not an immediate fix for acute mountain sickness; it speeds up part of the acclimatization process which in turn helps to relieve symptoms. This may take up to a day or two, and requires waiting without any further rapid ascent. It is often advisable to descend if even mild acute mountain sickness is experienced. If serious sickness is encountered or symptoms of high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) or high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) occur, descent with another trekker is A MUST. Please consult the pharmacist when purchasing Diamox and do your own research. One major thing to remember is that body requires large amounts of water at altitude to counteract sickness so be sure to drink more than you are used to!

Is my trek guaranteed departure?

Yes, it will operate on the day it is scheduled, except in the event that is beyond our control, such as political issues and natural disaster that will create undesirable travel conditions.

Can trek run with lower than minimum numbers?

Yes. We run from solo travel to group travel.

What is the age limit for the trek?

There is no age restriction.

What First-Aid does TMG take?

All our trekking guides are certified as Wilderness First-Aid Course and have years of experience in the mountains.

Does TMG provide Mountain Rescue?

Yes, it provides a helicopter to rescue you. TMG strongly recommends you for trip insurance at an altitude of 2,000 m to 5,000 m. Please read the insurance policy of your company. Bring the copy of your insurance paper to Nepal.

What is the cancellation policy of the trek?

Please read our cancellation policy

Is there any dietary restriction?

No, please tell us whether you are vegetarian or non-vegetarian. TMG will accommodate your diet that you wish to eat. We recommend you a vegan diet because it provides more fiber, antioxidants, and beneficial plant compounds. They also appear to be richer in potassium, magnesium, folate and vitamins A, C and E.

How much does a water bottle cost in the mountain?

It costs US $2 and US $4 at the lower and the higher elevation respectively.

Trekking peaks

There are 33 mountain peaks in Nepal of 5,650 m- 6,500 m height classified as trekking peaks. Climbing permits for these peaks cost $350 USD for one to four members, an additional $40 USD each for the next four members and $25 USD each for the final four members. Trekking peaks require a qualified climbing guide, permits and deposits to cover camp waste disposal.

Accommodation

Few of the common accommodation options while trekking in Nepal are Tea Houses (Lodges) which can be found at various points on the trek. They offer dorm room accommodation and simple basic meals reflective of what the local people in the area eat. Although many tea houses and hotels in the hills and mountains are reasonably comfortable, some may not be comfortable, so it makes sense to bring a sleeping bag even for teahouse treks. Camping is another option for trekkers and it can be conducted almost anywhere in the country. Camping treks can be fully organized and supported with a team of guides, cooks, and porters to accompany you. Homestays in local villages can also be organized in few treks.

Experience & Fitness

The treks in Nepal are suitable for a wide spectrum of experience and physical fitness. If you can walk uphill for a few hours each day, then you can find a suitable trek in Nepal. An easy trek with Nepali support (guide/porter) and teahouse accommodation is quite attainable for anyone who is reasonably fit. A longer trek, crossing high passes and into remote regions demands a higher degree of endurance. For Trekking Peaks, i.e. summiting a mountain of 5,650 m-6,500 m, it is desirable to have some alpine climbing experience.

Safety considerations

Always carry a head torch/lamp, water, some food, and a mobile phone with helicopter evacuation number, local police station and nearby health post in case of emergencies.

Rescue insurance

Before the departures check that your travel insurance covers trekking activities and the conditions. Be aware that some insurance companies view even walking in the mountains as “mountaineering” and will not provide coverage. Most reputable trekking agencies will require proof of rescue insurance before you start on your trek. It would be very costly to pay a helicopter rescue at 5,000 meters. Some insurance policies, in fact most, will not cover you over 4,000 m. So make sure about your rescue insurance before you go for trekking.

Responsible trekking

Trek legally. You need for this a Trekking Agency, the sole authorized to employ staff for foreign trekkers. Do not hire staff or “independent guides” through hotels, unless they have a Trekking Agent license or offer this service through an affiliated Trekking Agent. Please make sure you take all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants, to the nearest dustbins. Pollution and lack of trash management in the villages on the treks – including trash-clogged rivers and mounds of discarded beer bottles.
