FAQs

Yes. We run from solo travel to group travel.

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.

  • Trek legally. Independent trekkers are by law not allowed to take any staff, for this you need a licensed Trekking Agency which is solely authorized to employ staff for foreign trekkers. Do not hire staff or "independent guides" through hotels, unless they have a Trekking Agent license or offer this service through an affiliated Trekking Agent.
  • Please make sure you take all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants, to the nearest dustbins. Pollution and lack of trash management in the villages on the treks - including trash-clogged rivers and mounds of discarded beer bottles.
  • All of our team are local. Either they are our guides, drivers, or a porter. On this trip, we will stay overnight at a teahouse run by the local people. Most of the teahouse in mountains is run by family members. We pay them for the accommodation and the food. That supports the local people. Our team highly encourages you to buy local products and help local entrepreneurs to be sustainable.
  • Walk miles for a good cause; Travel Max Guide is a local tour operator, promotes sustainable and responsible tourism in Nepal. Care about our community and the Environment. As a part, we contribute certain income for a good cause to our communities and the people. Working on behalf of the children of Nepal. Specially support in educational assistance.

 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.  

All our trekking guides are certified as Wilderness First-Aid Course and have years of experience in the mountains.

Yes, it will operate on the day it is scheduled, except if is beyond our control, such as political issues and natural disaster that will create undesirable travel conditions.

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 main essentials to bring are:

  • Sturdy and comfortable hiking boots, flip-flops
  • Sleeping bag (depending on your accommodation) and -20 degree Celsius for colder regions
  • Daypack, trekking bag pack, dry sack, and camera bag
  • Few changes of clothes for the varying temperatures
  • For cold weather, hiking pants, thermals, gloves, neck warmer/scarf, beanie, a warm inner jacket and a windproof/waterproof outer jacket and down jacket are essential.
  • Water purification supplies, a reusable water bottle, and a camelback water bladder
  • Sunscreen, Hat, sunglasses, moisturizing skin cream, and lip balm
  • Few snacks, granola bars
  • A hiking stick or two
  • Waterproof case, fabric bandages such as moleskin, a headlamp, altitude sickness, and other medication
  • Camera
  • Hand sanitizers, toilet paper, band-aids, wet wipes
  • 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.

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.
