  • Extra batteries (solar chargers recommended)

On the popular trekking routes, everyday supplies, such as toilet paper, soap, chocolate bars, and even basic hiking supplies can be purchased along the way, though prices rise dramatically as you go higher in elevation. Try to stock up lower down and buy locally-produced products such as fruit, biscuits, etc. Maps are easy to find in Nepal.

In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the tourist standard hotel (3-star hotel) on a twin-sharing basis. A few of the common accommodation options while trekking in Nepal are Tea Houses (Lodges) which can be found at various points on the trek. They offer double or dorm room accommodation and simple basic meals reflective of what the local people in the area eat. Although many tea houses and hotels in the hills and mountains are reasonably comfortable, you can bring your sleeping bag even for teahouse treks.

TMG does not expect previous trekking experience from you; however, all the treks that it organizes are physically demanding. It recommends starting an exercise prior to your trek date. Many of its trips are at higher altitudes, the minimum is 2,000m, and the max is 5,000m plus.

There is no age restriction.

Please read up extensively on Altitude sickness. Be familiar with the symptoms and do not ignore them. Be sure to keep to a conservative ascent schedule and drink plenty of fluids. From the first realization of headaches or stomach cramps notify your guide directly and return to a lower altitude. Carry some Diamox (acetazolamide) pills, easily found in pharmacies in Nepal. But note that Diamox is not an immediate fix for acute mountain sickness; it speeds up part of the acclimatization process which in turn helps to relieve symptoms. It may take a day or two. Don’t take acute mountain sickness lightly and even on mild experiences descend to a lower altitude. Encountering serious sickness, high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) symptoms, or high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) you MUST descent with at least one other trekker (or your guide). Consulting the pharmacist where you purchase Diamox is strongly advised. One major thing to remember is that body requires large amounts of water at altitude to counteract sickness so be sure to drink more than you are used to!

The treks in Nepal are suitable for a wide spectrum of experience and physical fitness. If you can walk uphill for a few hours each day, then you can find a suitable trek in Nepal. A longer trek, crossing high passes and into remote regions demands a higher degree of endurance.
