About Trekking


Although backpacking (carrying everything you need to be self-sufficient on your own back) is widely practiced in mountain areas elsewhere in the world, it is seldom appropriate in Nepal. Backpacking is a mode of travel for wilderness areas, and few parts of Nepal actually fall into this category.

Despite the possible sense of satisfaction to be gained from being completely self-sufficient, carrying stoves, fuel and supplies of freeze-dried food for an outing of over four or five days is unnecessary and arduous. With some exceptions, fresh food is widely available throughout Nepal – nutritious, delicious and digestible. By contrast, even the most expensive freeze-dried food is practically inedible and has alarming effects on the digestive system. Given that most Himalayan treks involve at least two weeks on the trail, and longer ones well over month, backpacking is usually a non-starter. Remember also that if you plan to camp out and cook your own food you must have the stamina at the end of each day to do it. The trails are brutally steep and your pack will be very heavy. On the positive side, you will be free to camp wherever you please, but be aware that in certain areas there is a security and safety risk.
