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. Leading around the steeply hills and rocky routes is not a job of common climbers and trekkers. Himalayan Magic Treks have been providing native leaders and staffs working in this field perfectly since many years to overcome tough challenges and make your trip a golden memory. Our Guides are trained and well certified by the Government of Nepal. Our staffs have received proper emergency guidance and evacuation education in the Himalayas. They are also entirely aware of correct knowledge of first aid to the victims. We have never and will never compromise on the safety to our clients; therefore, we provide insurance and medical services during the trek and compensation when they needs.

Field Staffs Rules:

To pass through challenging routes and to ensure your safety and comfort, we need adequate number of staffs. It includes guide, porter, driver, assistant guide and so on. We provide guide in every trip while one assistant guide to every 4-9 group of guests and two with every 10 crew. As for the porters, we send 1 porter for every 2 guest. The number of porter also varies to the load of the clients; a porter’s maximum load is 25kg. Our staffs are professional and expert guides (leader) who can speak languages like English, French, Germany, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and other as required. We can also manage any other staffs as per your demands.

Trekking Equipment:

Equipment does matter to make your trip comfortable and better so you must be serious about check list before going to trek. We advice to take general equipment for the trek click here on link about equipment lists

Security is our primary concern from your first day you will be under our service and protection. Our staff will pick you up at the airport and will assist you to your hotel.

We also focus on acclimatization days to get rid of altitude sickness. We will take care of you on arrival to till on in your final departure date (airport drop services)

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 Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas. Everest, Langtang, Annapurna as well as Tibet 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.


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.

Nepal trek Tsum Valley et Manaslu Trek Nov 2018 • Couples

Une nouvelle fois nous repartons avec Himalayan Magic Trek , et notre guide preferé, Sitaram Karki et son fidele et enthousiaste porteur Prakash, veritable superman porteur, pour cette fois visité , dans un premier temps, la Tsum Valley, jusqu a la frontiere tibetaine pour ensuite retrouver l itineraire du tour du Manaslu par le Larkya pass , a 5103 metres . Apres un voyage en jeep nous commençons par Macchi Kola et poursuivons vers Liding, Jagat, Philim, tout en quittant progressivement la route en construction, pour rejoindre les chemins de treks nepalais, tout cela sous une chaleur torride, en ce debut novembre 2018. Tout se passe a merveille, comme d habitude grace a la grande technicité de l equipe Sitaram et Prakash. Cette region etant peu frequentée, nous pouvons nous laisser aller progressivement vers la reverie des hauts villages de culture tibetaine de cette region. Nous avons eu le privilege de visiter de Rachen Gompa, formidable construction flambant neuve, eclatant de couleurs vives et rempli de toute l'imagerie sacrée du bouddhisme tantrique, ce lieu est l'un des plus beaux de cette vallée . Puis nous avons atteint notre point ultime de cette premiere partie, Mu Gompa, tres typique temple tibetain, rempli de moines et de tous les symboles tantriques, plus ancien que Rachen, cette construction perchée sur un surplomb de terrain accidenté nous permet egalement de comtempler quelques fantastiques 6000 et 7000 sertis tout autour de cet endroit vraiment rempli de sagesse et de quietude millenaire .Puis nous sommes redescendus par le meme chemin pour rejoindre le trek et l'itineraire vers le Manaslu tour. Bien sur, cette region etant ouverte au tourisme depuis bien longtemps, (j'ai moi meme effectué ce trek lors de sa premiere ouverture au public, au debut des années 90 et j'en avais gardé un souvenir emouvant devant la beauté de ses paysages et la solitude des endroits ou nous campions), tout cela a bien changé, certes, ce n est pas encore le Khumbu ni le tour des Annapurnas, mais quand meme, plus question de diner ni de dormir seuls dans tous les lodges qui parsement ce t itineraire. Mais bon, il suffit d'un peu de concentration pour faire le vide mental necessaire, meme si ce n est pas toujours evident...Bref, nous sommes arrivés aux villages d'altitude proche de la montagne Manaslu, l'un des quatorze 8000 de la planete, malheureusement la meteo s'est progressivement deterriorée, et la brume et le froid des hautes altitudes nous a rejoint pendant les deux ou trois jours les plus en altitude du trek, y compris le jour du passage du col, dommage. Nous avons quand meme pu contempler ces belles montagnes, brievement au cours de quelques trop rares eclaircies matinales, vraiment dommage, mais la meteo restera toujours incertaine dans ces hautes depressions et il est bien rare de pouvoir faire des previsions a l 'avance. Ainsi Samagaon, Samdo , les deux plus hauts villages du trek, a l'ambiance tibetaine profondement enracinée ont toujours ce charme mysterieux, meme avec la presence de nombreux touristes...Le passage du col s'est effectué sans reelles difficultés, c 'est l'un des plus faciles d'accès au Nepal , malgré ses 5103 metres, la montée ainsi que la descente sont tellement progressifs que, cela s'effectue generalement sans problemes si l'on est en bonne condition physique. Les jours suivant le beau temps s'est a nouveau installé, et nous avons continué ainsi jusqu'a rejoindre le point d'arrivée, ou notre jeep nous attendaita Dharapani, pour nous reconduire a Katmandhu.
Voila donc un trek de plus a ajouter a la longue liste qui a commencé en septembre 1989, mais je tiens a souligné que, depuis quelques années, nous sommes accompagnés dans ces trek par l'agence Himalayan Magic Treks, de Nabin Karki, avec son excellent guide Sitaram , et nous en sommes tellement satisfait, (competence, gentillesse, attention,connaissance du terrain et de sa culture, un vrai bonheur !) que nous pensons deja au prochain voyage ! un grand merci a eux tous, et avec un hommage appuyé a Sitaram et a son immense professionalisme.
