The trek derives its name from the breath-taking and memorable sunrise view from the top of Poon hill, made worthwhile by the snow-capped mountains glistening in the sun. The panoramic Himalayan view includes Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Himchuli, and Nilgiri.

The Annapurna Sunrise trek is also called family trek for the short, easy walks (5 hours) to an elevation of 3210 m. The trek can be best experienced during the months of February to May and October to December.  Rhododendron forests, terraced fields, waterfalls, streams, and traditional villages adorn the entire trail.

The cultural trek explores temples, palaces, museums and traditional villages of the trail. Ghorepani is another Magar village whose people treat the tourists with warm hospitality.

The trek explores modern cities and beautiful hilly areas. The mesmerizing mountain peaks and green sceneries make a delightful company throughout the trail. All adventure lovers should try the trek for its natural and cultural treasures.

FAQs on Trekking in Nepal

Nepal is a paradise filled with natural flora and fauna. From the plain lands of Terai to the high Himalayas, there is diversification and singularity in every aspect. This is what makes Nepal so unique.

Due to variation in the topography and altitudes, Nepal has been famously spotted as a diverse Trekking Region. Nepal offers normal trekking routes starting from 2000m (Dhampus Trek, Ghandruk Trek) to 5500m (Everest Base Camp). And I can tell you that every single trek has its own peculiarity and adventure.

You may have a lot of queries regarding trekking in Nepal. In this article, I have tried to answer some of them.

Is it safe to travel in Nepal?

After the devastating earthquake in 2015, every visitor has had this common question in mind. And the answer is yes, it is safe to travel in Nepal. You can come here and enjoy without any hesitation or second thoughts.

After the quake, numerous reconstruction activities have been done and many are even going on. So, you will be witnessing a different outlook of the country. If you are willing, you can even lend a hand financially or through volunteering for reconstruction in the remote areas.

How is the current political scenario in Nepal?

The political situation in Nepal is facing a transitional shift. Nepal is in the process of adopting a federal structure of governance form.  From the political view, there are not many obstacles as you might think.

How can I get a Nepal visa for arrival?

You can get your arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Most of the people can obtain a visa on entry to Nepal. Some countries’ visa will need to be arranged prior traveling.

The price of visa depends on the number of days you will be staying. $25 is for 15 days from the date of issue, $40 for 30 days and $100 for 90 days tourist visa. You will need two passport size photos. Other documents are not required.

You can apply for an online visa through (http://www.online.nepalimmigration.gov.np/ ).

Do you have any pickup facility from the airport on arrival and departure?

Yes, our company has a pick-up facility as a complementary policy. At your arrival, our agency airport representative will pick you up from the airport. You can recognize us at the spot easily through our company’s name card.

And when you complete your trip, we will drop you back.

What type of insurance should I get? How can I get it?

We advise you to get your general travel and medical insurance cover from your respective country. In Nepal, you should buy medical and mountain evacuation insurance for traveling. But, we don’t offer mountain rescue insurance here.

Who can go on the trips?

Our trips are designed for everyone who has a love for outdoor adventure and cultural experience. Of course, some trips may be a bit difficult for people who are physically unfit.

In such cases, you need to choose only those trips that suit you best. Please contact for prior management.

What if I am a solo traveler? Is there any supplementary service for singles?

Not a problem at all. Many of our customers are traveling single. You also have the option to join a small group or another solo traveler.

Even if you are a single traveling woman, you need not worry. You will not face any kind of awkwardness.

Yes. There is an extra charge for traveling alone. Please contact us to find out more.

Do I really need a trekking guide?

According to recent changes in policy, trekking guides are almost mandatory for trekking in Nepal for everyone. It is to ensure safety and protection of all visiting tourists.

Plus, the journey will be a lot more informative and memorable with guides. S/he will be your friend and company during the journey.

But if you are well experienced and have trekked before as well, you may not require one. But if you are with a guide, it will be easy for you to tackle any problems during the trek.

Do I need a porter?

This part completely depends on your choice. If you think you are able to carry backpacks on your own, you can avoid them. If not, it is better to hire one.

You can have double benefits as well. As porters may have knowledge about the trails and settlements, you may not even require a guide.

Do you have tailor-made trips?

Yes. If there is any specific place that you want to visit that is not on our itinerary or if you want to combine trips or do multiple treks, we can surely arrange that. Send us your ideas and we will work with you to put together a customized trip of a lifetime.

When is the best time to visit Nepal for trekking?

Spring and Autumn season can be considered as the best time for trekking in Nepal.

October to November is the most popular time for trekking in Nepal. As it is the post monsoon period, the climate is clear and the mountains have an amazing view.

After that, March to May is the second most popular time. This pre-monsoon time has warmer weather with good visibility.

Besides, short tea house treks can be done during the winter season as well. I suggest you guys not to make plans for treks during monsoon and winter as far as possible.

How difficult is trekking in Nepal?

Nepal is known worldwide for its adventurous and interesting trekking spots. You certainly need to keep in mind that the journey will be challenging.

The toughness of the trekking depends on its altitude, grade, and location. There are different gradings for trekking such as; easy, medium, challenging, and demanding. You can make your choice depending on these grades.

Regarding time, you will be trekking 5 to 7 hours per day for altitudes ranging from 3000m to 8848m. But again, it will depend on the type of trek.

So no need to be afraid! You will enjoy extreme wilderness untouched by modern development. You will be grateful for the thrill and adventure of exploring the exotic nature.

How long will be the trekking period?

The period of trekking will depend on its type and grades.

As I have already mentioned about the grading of trekking, the most challenging treks will be for more than 4 weeks. The easy type of trek completes in about 1-3 days whereas the moderate will take about a week. The days taken cannot be exactly calculated as it might depend on weather conditions and other emergencies.

How fit should I be for the trekking?

You should be mentally and physically prepared for the trekking. The success of trekking wholly depends on you. We suggest you choose the trekking routes that suit your fitness level. Obviously, shorter treks are easier than longer ones. The longer treks will require a better standard of fitness.

So, be in your best physical form. Believe in yourself and move on!

What are tea houses and camping trekking? Is it possible here?

Teahouse trekking and camping trekking are the two general types of trekking in Nepal.

Teahouse trekking is the most popular type of trekking in Nepal. It is available in the trekking regions of Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, and Manaslu.

In this type, you will get good accommodation and fooding with a variety of items in the menu including Nepali Dal Bhat.

Camping trekking means making a full camp, carrying everything for the whole trip and getting along for the destination. In this type, you will fully cater for camping. You (or porters or packed animals) will carry all the camping gears including food, tents, sleeping bags, medical kits, etc.

You will be pitching your camps wherever suitable. You will be accompanied by a guide, cooks, porters, and sometimes a packed animal.

As compared to the tea house trekking, camping trekking is a bit difficult.

What types of food will be served during the trekking?

All kinds of food, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food will be mostly available. But, I recommend you to eat vegetarian during the trekking period. It will be more hygienic and physically helpful.

About food standards in tea houses, the fruit and vegetables are hygienic and well soaked in iodine before cooking. Food will be simple and homely reflecting the Nepali culture. Continental and international cuisine can be also served (depending upon the places).

Most of the lodges serve boiled and filtered water, safe for drinking. If you want, you can buy bottled mineral water as well.

Will there be any telephone/internet facilities at higher altitudes?

Most of the villages along the popular trekking routes have good coverage of cell phone and internet.

The Wi-Fi service is slowly becoming popular. You can also find telephones for international calls. But, these extra services will cost you extra money.

What do I need to carry on the trek?

If you hire a porter, he will carry your luggage and belongings. A porter will carry up to 50 kg of load.

You should remember to carry a small day-sack, fleece jacket, waterproof clothes, warm hat, sunhat, sun-cream, water bottle, first aid kit and water purification kit. Besides, you can carry any other stuff you think is important.

What is AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness)? Can I suffer from AMS?

Altitude sickness is one of the major problems you may face during trekking in higher altitudes. It is also referred to as AMS. AMS is a kind of dizziness due to failure to adapt to the surrounding.

A severe headache, nose bleeding, rapid heartbeat, instant respiration, nausea, vomiting, coughing etc. are the common symptoms of AMS. Your lungs and brain will be the most affected during AMS. If you get any such indications, you have to be immediately moved to lower altitudes.

The chances of AMS cannot be predicted exactly. It sometimes depends on the surrounding and on your diet as well.

I recommend you to take proper advice and medication regarding AMS before you hit the road.

What happens in the case of emergency?

If you get in an emergency, we are ready to reach out and help you anyhow. Plus, our guides are properly trained to tackle such situations.

In the case of physical problems, the guides will help you out with their basic knowledge. If a serious emergency occurs, rescue operation by helicopter is available. Their expenses will be recovered from your insurance company.

Additionally, you have to be mentally and physically prepared for everything that might come on your way.

What currency should I bring?
