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 Base Camp Trek , Langtang Valley Trek , Annapurna Base Camp Trek, as well as Pikey Peak 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.

This is an abbreviation for 'Guide Accommodation and Porters' (GAP). This trek option is for those who only want basic support services from us. This is the most economical way to do trekking in Nepal. We provide an English speaking local Sherpa guide, book and pay for the accommodation in local lodges during trek and arrange required porters and trekkers who pay for their meals directly to the local lodge owner. This option works only on certain routes in the Everest, Langtang and Annapurna regions where trekking routes are served by the local folks in their tea house or lodges. You pay for your own meals. We take care of all the expenses of our staff

How do we get safe drinking water during trek ?

On camping treks, our staff will boil and cook meals treated by potassium or iodine. On GAP treks, you will be able to buy safe hot drinks in the tea house. We recommend that you to bring water purification pills. On the trail, water from the streams is safe if away from settlements.

How fit must be for trekking in the Himalayas ?

You should be moderately fit, used to some regular exercise and enjoy walking in high altitude conditions. Living up to a physical challenge is always good for you, no matter what. Trekking once a year is always the best regimen for your body's needs; as per recommendations from most health journals throughout the world.

How should I dress during trek ?

The clothing you bring will need to allow for both the warmth of the days and the chill of the nights. While trekking during the day at lower altitudes, lightweight trekking trousers and T-shirts are recommended. It's always a good idea to carry a waterproof jacket and some warmer clothing with you though as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. For the cold nights, thermal underwear, a warm fleece jacket and even a down jacket will help to keep you warm. Good shoes are of great importance. They must be sturdy and comfortable. For higher altitude treks where you may have to tread snow for long hours, good boots are available for rent in Kathmandu. In view of local customs, try not to wear too skimpy or revealing clothes. Your reception by locals can vary greatly on the way you dress.

Is it possible to change lodge if it is not to my choice ?

Yes, you can definitely change the lodge if you feel it is not in order by talking it over with your guide, provided there are other lodges with good rooms in the vicinity.

Do you book lodges before or during the trek ?

We accommodate trekking groups in local lodges available on the trail. As it is not possible to book the rooms days in advance, we send a porter few hours ahead of the group each day to book the rooms.

How do I find you at the airport ?

Our airport representative and a vehicle will be waiting you at the arrival gate of the airport; in his hand will be a plaque board holding your name clearly written on the board or paper. You can’t lose us

Is it okay to get Nepal visa at airport or in advance ?

Obtaining a Nepalese visa on arrival is easier except that you may have to spend some precious time queuing. If you get your visa in advance, you can avoid the queue. Also, don’t forget to bring cash as ATMs are not available at the airport. Note: If you are staying for more than 15 days, don’t forget to arrange a visa for 30 days.

Where should I get my money exchange ?

You can get your money exchange at your hotel or we will exchange your money in better rates so before exchange your money ask once with HMT team

What is the weight limit of luggage ?

The weight limit for the trek is 15 kg per guest, as it is the maximum weight that the porters can carry. It is also important to note that "hard" luggage poses a problem: soft "duffel-bags" are recommended which we provide. The lighter you are the better for the trails.

How can I keep my luggage ?

You can keep your luggage and valuable items in a locker at the hotel in Kathmandu for free of charge.

Does Tea house have electricity to charge devices ?

Most of the tea houses have electricity facilities during the trekking period. You can charge your electronic devices on the trail.

What do I have to carry with me on trek ?

You will only have to carry a day pack, which should be a reasonable size to carry a water bottle, sunscreen, camera, etc. Your other packs are carried by porters. Again we stress on the wisdom of always ‘travel light’

It is healthy to take shower during trek ?

You can get hot shower services throughout the trip. However, the higher you climb the less pleasant it will be. It’s better to be on the safe side of things

Embark on an Unforgettable Milke Danda Trekking Adventure - Best Explored in Spring!

Discover the enchanting Milke Danda Rhododendron Trail in the eastern part of Nepal, where the pure beauty of nature and the thrill of wilderness trekking come together in perfect harmony. The best time to experience the wonders of Milke Danda is during the spring season, from March to May. This period promises optimal weather conditions, making it the most suitable time for hiking this picturesque trail.

Why Milke Danda Trekking Stands Out:

  • Spring Splendor: Immerse yourself in the vibrant hues of rhododendron blossoms as Milke Danda comes alive in the spring. The trail showcases the breathtaking beauty of nature at its peak, offering an unparalleled trekking experience.
  • Authentic Village Experiences: Begin your adventure in Kathmandu and traverse through several local villages, creating unforgettable memories along the way. Engage with the local culture, share stories, and witness the warmth of Nepalese hospitality.
  • Tent Camping Adventures: For the true adventurers, Milke Danda Trekking offers the option of spending a few days in tents. This immersive experience allows you to connect intimately with the natural surroundings, creating lasting memories with our experienced crew.

Winter Wonderland Trekking (December to February):

For the seasoned trekker seeking a unique challenge, Milke Danda Trekking in winter provides a surreal experience. The unpredictable weather and snow-covered trails add an extra layer of adventure. While the sky remains clear, the landscape transforms daily with the drifting snow, creating a mesmerizing winter wonderland.

  • Fewer Crowds, More Serenity: Winter brings a quieter trail with fewer trekkers and lodges, providing a more serene experience. However, it's crucial to note that winter trekking is for the more experienced adventurers. Lodges may close during this season as locals descend to lower altitudes to escape the cold, making preparation and planning essential.

In conclusion, Milke Danda Trekking offers a captivating journey through the heart of nature. Whether you prefer the vibrant spring or the challenging winter adventure, the beauty of Milke Danda awaits. Contact us to discuss the possibilities and let us tailor an extraordinary trekking experience for you. Your Milke Danda adventure is just a step away!
