Trekking Team:

Being homeland of Himalayas, it’s obvious to have challenging routes, dangerous weather, health issues; any of these situations is enough to ruin your trip.

Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and spring (March - May) is the best season for trekking and mountaineering in Nepal. Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate in these seasons which offer beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring grants you beautiful flowers, plants and rare animals. Walking is favorable during these seasons.

Summer (June - August) and winter (December - February).
Though summer has heavy monsoon rainfall, it is very much clearer to trek around Upper Mustang Trek , Upper Dolpo Trek and Nar Phu Valley Trek since they are rain shadow areas. Everest Trek , Langtang Trek , Annapurna TrekManaslu Circuit TrekKanchenjunga Trek as well as Tibet Everest Base Camp Trek are always better to trek in winter season.

Experience & Fitness:

Trekking can be challenging and exhausting. So you might need some fitness training and experience for some tough trial. Nepal Trekking in Everest Base Camp does not require past experience or extreme fitness even though we have more challenging routes in different region compared to that of Everest. Trekking in Himalayas always takes us to challenging altitudes and rocky routes. You could ask for proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain your strength. Mountains can never be achieved in a day. We always provide the detail in our itinerary. However certain training like running, skipping and other workouts will definitely be beneficial in such challenging routes.

Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a major risk when trekking. You might experience it on any trails above 2,500 m however; good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent from altitude sickness. Every trekkers needs to be familiar with the heights and altitude so, for this we have life saving appropriate acclimatization days during the trek, We also provide certain medical support for your relief and emergency rescue through helicopter whenever the situation gets worse.

Eco Friendly:

Our only goal in the Himalayas is to leave the memories and foot prints; Himalayan Magic Treks is concerned on environment pollution issue and global warming. We are always serious and genuine about our garbage during the trek especially during camping. We collect the rubbish and dump it to the proper place to protect our environment and also appeal our clients to do the same. We partake in every program conducted in KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project) and other environmental conservation programs. We want to promote Safe environment act and stand against pollution & global warming.

Tailor-Made Itinerary:

Sometimes trekking in the Himalayan Region passes through unexpected complication like natural calamity, health challenges and many other problems that might result to the changes of the itinerary. So, we kindly request you to cooperate with your guide and the team in such situation.

Kathmandu to Pokhara there will be two options to reach either Land transportation or by flights so, if you want to take flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara is possible everyday, also normal Tourist Bus or there will be private transport as well , private transport, it will be more expensive less expensive than flights but better comfort instead of public bus for the travel to Pokhara .

Poonhill Trekking during Monsoon season

Most people who do trekking in Nepal want to visit between September to October due to the weather condition, and people do not recommend to visit Nepal during the Monsoon season. However, it was very impressive to visit Nepal and do Poonhill trekking during the Monsoon. Firstly, I could enjoy the tranquility and the peaceful atmosphere during the entire trekking. There was only me and my guide in the lodge mostly. Thus, there was no disturbance or noise. Secondly, there was plenty of chances to see the mountain scenery during the trekking. For me, I could not see any high peaks during the trekking or in the lodge on 1st and 2nd day due to the thick foggy weather. However, from the 3rd day, weather got better and could see the beautiful mountain peaks. I recognize that this solely depends on one person's luck, and this made me more grateful and got impressed. Lastly, due to the my kind guide and coordinator, I could finish the trekking program safely and gladly. From the contact to the departure from Nepal, this travel agency took care me with the hospitality, and if there was any immediate request, they tried to take an action as quickly as possible. So I recommend this small but warm travel agency.

Trek 6 jours au Népal: Nayapul – Ghorepani - Poon Hill- Ulleri - Pokhara May 2019 • Couples

Nous avons réservé notre trek par le biais des guides francophones qui suivent les cours de français de l'Alliance française directement à l’agence de Katmandou. Notre Guide Dipak et notre porteur Pasang Sherpa ont été adorables et aux petits soins pour nous. Nous avions prévu un sac à dos pour deux et donc un seul porteur. Tout s'est formidablement bien passé. Tout était prévu : nos inscriptions, nos permis, les taxis pour l’aller et le retour…tout !. Nous ne nous sommes occupés d’aucune formalité administrative et le tout pour un prix très attractif. Comparez et vous verrez !
Nous étions toujours attendus, que ce soit dans les restaurants le midi ou dans les lodges le soir. La réputation de Dipak et de Pasang, les précèdent… à chaque fois on sentait que notre équipe était retrouvée avec bonheur ; Pasang passait très souvent côté cuisine pour le plus grand bonheur de nos papilles ! Et Dipak a toujours été là pour nous réveiller au bon moment, juste quand il le fallait pour voir les couchers et les levers de soleil sur la chaine des Annapurna. A croire qu’il avait un réalisé un contrat avec la météo ! On a eu une chance et une visibilité presque parfaite tout au long tout au long de notre voyage, avec juste assez de nuits glaciales et de journées brumeuses pour apprécier ses montagnes spectaculaires. L’originalité était aussi au rendez-vous : nous avons fait l’ascension dans le sens inverse des propositions touristiques habituelles et nous avons pu profiter des géants (Dhaulagiri, Machapuchare, l'Hiunchuli et l'Annapurna Sud) dans une parfaite tranquillité !; Pour la descente nous avons fait une version longue et avons traversé des villages de la Zone Protégée de l’Annapurna, qui n’étaient pas sur la zone « Trek », donc là non plus pas de rencontres de «Touristes» . Une très, très belle expérience. Encore bravo cette belle agence et avec toute notre chaleureuse amitié à son équipe.

Népal, vient comme un invité, repart comme un ami !

J’ai choisi de partir avec Himalayan Magic Treks, grâce une amie trekkeuse qui est déjà partie avec cette agence. J’ai correspondu par e-mail avec Nabin, qui est très réactif et s’est parfaitement adapté à mes demandes pour me proposer une destination de trek pour moi et mon amie.
Les services d’Himalayan Magic treks sont excellents, de l’accueil de l’aéroport, jusqu’à l’hôtel, briefing avec Nabin et Kumar notre guide, les déplacements, le trek, vous ne pouvez qu’être en confiance et être satisfait de leurs prestations.
Je garde un merveilleux souvenir de mon trek à Ghorepani-Poon Hill, et de la gentillesse et professionnalisme de Nabin et Kumar notre guide.
