Preparing for your Tour

The Adventure Travel Experts available online or by emailing at info@nepalfootprintholiday.com

Climate of Nepal

Temperatures in the lower altitude regions are extremely pleasant. At Kathmandu and Pokhara variations in temperature are very limited: from the coldest recorded of 0°C to the highest of 38°C. The mountains are best admired, with greater air clarity, from October to March. Monsoon rains are strongest in June, July and August. The coldest months are December and January.

Clothing

Being properly equipped is one of the keys to a successful trek. The followingcheck list and notes to be sure that you have what you need for the actual trek.

Long Trousers: For everyday walking, light cotton trousers are the most suitable. Knee length shorts are acceptable in the more remote areas, but to avoid giving offence in the villages, you should cover up with trousers. Although comfortable, leggings are also unsuitable as they too cause offence to local people. Jeans are not recommended as they are often difficult to walk in over longer distances and become cumbersome when wet.

Down Jacket: After sunset, temperatures can fall below freezing point. A down jacket is the lightest and most convenient way of keeping warm when the temperature drops. Down jackets can be inexpensively hired or bought in Nepal. Our experience local guide in Kathmandu will give details at the briefing session.

Waterproofs: Breathable waterproofs not only protect against rain and wind but also stop you from overheating. They 'breathe' and avoid condensation, which you will experience from nylon waterproofs. Rain during the trekking season is rare but can be heavy if it does happen.

Gloves: They are especially useful in the morning and in the evening at higher altitudes. Thermal types are most suitable.

Socks: It is best to wear a pair of reasonably thick loop stitch socks. This helps to protect your feet against blisters. Avoid nylon socks, they are abrasive; do not breathe well as they can cause blisters. A thick fleece pullover or jacket is necessary, as nights can be very cold at altitude. Make sure that your waterproof jacket is loose enough to wear over your pullover or jacket.

Track Suit: Comfortable and much more practical (and warmer) to sleep in than pyjamas. Alternatively, thermal underwear is good. Thin Shirt/T-Shirt Thick Shirt or Thermal Vest Warm Hat.

Footwear: We strongly recommend you for good walking option and hence we suggest you to acquire, a comfortable pair of walking boots. Trainers and tennis shoes do not give the ankle support afforded by a decent pair of walking boots. Ideally, visit a specialist outdoor who will offer advice. It is a good idea to carry your boots in your hand luggage on international flights or wear them. Trainers and/or sandals are useful for post trek relaxation, whilst travelling and in towns.

Luggage: On Trek/Tour

Your luggage should consist of three main pieces:
Main Baggage: The item of luggage used to carry all your belongings in the hold of the plane and used to store all of the items you don't need on trek. This can be left behind at the group hotel used prior to the trek. We provide you free storage service in Kathmandu Hotel.

Trek Kitbag: All of our treks in Nepal receive a free Nepal Footprint Holiday kitbag on the tour prior to the start of the trek. Approximately 70 to 80 litters in size it is ideal for all items you need to take on trek and the luggage preferred by our porter. The weight limit for this is 10kg to 12kg but you will probably find that you do not need this much.

Day sac/Rucksack: 30-35 litters recommended, if you are keen to carrying more you may bring bigger to. During the course of a trekking day, you do not have to carry the luggage, which is being carried for you by our porters. In any mountain region, the weather can change rapidly and you must be equipped for this eventuality. Your day bag should therefore be large enough to carry waterproofs, fleece jacket/sweater, long trousers 'if walking in shorts', warm hat and gloves, sun hat, sun cream, water bottle 'minimum 1 liter' and your camera. On a few occasions, it is also necessary to carry your own packed lunch. We advise you to take a waterproof rucksack cover or alternatively line the sack with a large plastic bag to keep the contents dry. Advice on how and what to pack for the trek will be given at the tour briefing but it may be useful to do a trial pack before you leave home. Luggage allowed on tour is 15kg. If you are taking only the comfortable tours than there are no limit baggage because of transport.

General Information

Food: The prices for meals and drinks can vary greatly depending upon location and the prices detailed below are an average guide. In general, you would expect that drinks purchased in a supermarket or local bar to be less expensive, whilst drinks in an up market bar or restaurant may be more expensive.

"Top class mounting bike tour in Kathmandu"

I took the 3 day Kathmandu Valley Bike Tour, through the Shivapuri National Park. We started and finished in Katmandu and it was excellent. The first morning was a steady climb to Shivapuri National Park from Kathmandu, where we had lunch. That afternoon we rode through beautiful forest trails and culturally rich villages. The second day we traverse the hills overlooking the Kathmandu valley and the deep into the national park. Day 3 we headed back through the park and then back down to Kathmandu.
