Trekking in Nepal. The Himalayas.
Trekking is `going on a long arduous journey, typically on foot`
So tell us, where else in the world is a better place than the Nepalese Himalaya to enjoy a multi-day hike in marvellous mountainous areas, passing through beautiful mountain villages and getting to know the locals and their traditions, while you are enjoying the magnificent nature?
There are endless possibilities to enjoy the Himalaya.
As a trekking agency, Nepal Inside Out offers fully organized treks. This means that we arrange everything for you. The only things you have to do are hiking and enjoying the mountain scenery.
That`s why all our trekking itineraries start and end in Kathmandu, where nearly everyone enters Nepal.
Overview of treks in Nepal.
We tried to divide the treks geographically: if you want to go hiking to a particular area, you can look which treks are possible. The list of treks is not exhaustive, you can combine treks in one region or take a side trail and add some extra days.
Plenty of choice for a trek
Best time for each trek
Not all seasons are the right season for your preferred trek. For most of the trekkings the best season is Spring or Autumn. Some trails you can do the whole year. Some others, like Mustang and Dolpo are in the rain shadow of the Himalaya and nicest in Summer.
On the description of each trek you find the best season for this trek. If you want to do this trek on another time, contact us, so we can see if it is possible.
Lodge, tents or homestays.
The style of the trek defines also the difficulty. It refers to the accommodation you are staying. Most of the treks you stay in a teahouse or a lodge. Some of the treks you stay (some days) with locals. Others you are sleeping and eating in tents and have a fully equipped Nepalese staff that comes along with you.
The treks are qualified in grades/levels of difficulty. They go from easy to medium, to strenuous and challenging. These grades are meant to give you an idea of the heaviness of a trek so you are able to choose a trek that fits your physical abilities. This way you will enjoy your trek the most.
You love hiking in the mountains, but what to do with your children? Take them with you. Trekking with children is perfect possible. Choose a trek that is not to high and your family will have a great time exploring the area.
Our guides are well trained in detecting symptoms of the high altitude disease or acute mountain sickness. Prevention is always better then to cure.
To prevent the disease, there are acclimatization days during your high altitude trek.
Your body needs these days to adjust at the height. During these days, you can go for a day hike or visit the village where you are staying.
There are hikes of several lengths: one day to some days or weeks. It is often possible to combine hikes in the same region or in a neighboring region, or add some days to a hike with a side trail. Suggestions of trails you can combine with your preferred trek you find in the description of the particular trek.
Or go hiking for a longer period, and explore (part of) the Great Himalayan Trail.
We arrange your pick-up at the Tribhuvan airport and will bring you to your hotel, where you will meet your trekking guide. There is a short briefing about your trek and a check if you have all the necessary equipment. If not, your guide will help you to find the right place to get what you need.
Trekking permits, park fees & TIMS-card.
For trekking in Nepal you need some documents to enter the mountains. Which documents you need depends on the area where you trek.
If you book with us, we arrange all the paperwork. For treks in restricted areas, we need a full day with your original passport to arrange all the trekking documents. In these cases we add an extra day in Kathmandu before the actual trek.
