Trekking in Nepal (once is not enough)

Nepal is the ultimate destination for the trekking enthusiast – offering a myriad of possibilities from the short and easy to the demanding challenges of the snowy peaks. If you have the time and energy to trek, don’t miss the opportunity to leave Kathmandu and see the spectacular beauty and the unique culture of Nepal. Trekking in Nepal will take you through a country that has captured the imagination of mountaineers and explorers for more than 100 years. You will meet people in remote mountain villages whose lifestyle has not changed in generations. Most people trust foreigners. Nepal is one of only a handful of countries that has never been ruled by a foreign power. Trekking does not mean mountain climbing. While the ascent of a Himalayan peak may be an attraction for some, you need not have such a goal to enjoy a trek. Trekking always refers to walking on trails. While trekking you will see the great diversity of Nepal. Villages embrace many ethnic groups and cultures. The terrain changes from tropical jungle to high glaciated peaks in only 150 km. From the start, the towering peaks of the Himalaya provide one of the highlights of a trek.

The beauty and attraction of the Nepal Himalaya emanates not only from the mountains themselves, but also from their surroundings. Nepal is a country of friendly people, picturesque villages and a great variety of cultures and traditions. Trekking in Nepal is much a cultural experience as a Himalayan adventure. In the shadow of foothills of the icy pinnacles of the Himalayas, one passes picturesque charming villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups. Treks vary from expedition, high altitude treks to simple easy paced walk.

Trekking Seasons

Spring and Autumn ( Feb- May-Sep-Nov.): The best time of the year to trek Nepal. Warm days and clear sky make it ideal for all treks and also for rafting.

Winter (Dec - Jan): This season is also quite good but the air can be quite cold at high altitudes However low altitude trekking and jungle safari can be done. This is a very good time if you want to avoid crowds.

Monsoon ( June - Aug): These three rainy months are characterized by clouds and humid heat at lower altitudes therefore not suitable for trekking in most parts of Nepal but still possible to trek some part of Nepal . However this is the best time to visit Tibet as it is warm and rain shadow regions north of himalaya like Mustang are out of reach of the rains because of the massive himalayan barrier and thus they aren't affected by the monsoon rains.

Climate

TIMS(Trekking Information Management System)

Organized Trekkers:

Trekking companies will collect trekkers’ data and enter it in the central database and will provide trekkers with a TIMS card after paying the fee prescribed above.

TIMS Card is compulsory to trek in all the trekking areas in the country. However, TIMS cards aren’t required for following:

  • - Expedition members with mountaineering permits issued by the government and Nepal Mountaineering Association.
  • - Visitors to controlled areas having permits issued by the Department of Immigration
  • Foreign guests invited by the Government of Nepal
  • Authorities from the various diplomatic missions present in the country, who hold official letter/s and travel at their own risk
  • Visitors on certain missions recommended by the concerned Governmental Department(s)
  • Foreign Nationals possessing a residential visa.

 

Opening Hour/s:

  • TIMS counter at TAAN follows regular working hours (10am-5pm) and 365 days a year
  • NTB Offices follow government working hours and days.
  • Trekking agencies open 12 hours a day seven days a week.

 

Documents Required:

  • To obtain TIMS Card you need copy of:

a) Passport

b) two (2) Passport-size Photographs.

 

Why is TIMS Necessary?

The following considerations have been taken into account in the process of issuing TIMS:

All important details regarding trekkers and trekking routes shall be maintained in a computerized Database Management System, which can be useful for the trekkers’ safety and security. In order to help carry out search and rescue operations for trekkers in case of natural calamities and other accidents by means of Authentic Information Service. To maintain a record system that includes personal details of trekkers, trekking area, trekking routes, handling agencies, duration, etc. The data generated from the system will be useful to all concerned stakeholders such as tourism organizations, Government agencies, diplomatic missions, tour operators, research institute, etc.

Unauthorized trekking operations will be controlled, thus, resulting in better management of trekking services, which will not only benefit trekkers and field staff, but also trekking companies and Government agencies. Occasional untoward incidents will also be better prevented. Plus, TIMS will upgrade the service standard and will contribute to better management of sustainable mountain tourism development in Nepal.
