Kathmandu valley offers a culinary paradise with diverse cuisine. During the lodge trek, relish a variety of Continental, Indian, and Nepali dishes, including pasta, pizza, momo, soup, dal bhat, and hot beverages like tea and coffee. Our experienced Guides (Leaders) will manage and recommend food choices to ensure guest satisfaction.

Hailing from the Himalayas, we comprehend the challenges posed by steep hills, treacherous weather, and health concerns. Himalayan Magic Treks has been providing seasoned local leaders and staff with years of expertise, ensuring a memorable trip. Our guides are certified by the Government of Nepal, equipped with emergency training and evacuation education in the Himalayas, and proficient in multiple languages.

Our ratio includes one guide for every trip, one assistant guide for every 4-9 guests, and two for every 10 guests. Porters, with a maximum load of 25 kg, are assigned at a ratio of one porter for every two guests.
