How difficult is trekking in Nepal?
The trekking trails in Nepal range from easy to moderate, difficult and very difficult. However, this perception of difficulty depends on preference of those who are trekking. Consider the trekking grades we have mentioned in our website for references. So, if you are reasonably fit i.e. you like to walk whenever possible and do some form of mild exercises regularly, trekking in Nepal may be bit challenging in higher altitudes but not exhausting.
How fit do I need to be for trekking in Nepal?
Generally speaking trekkers need to have good overall fitness and ability to walk for some hours on a hilly terrain and flexible to adjust with the conditions in the trail. If you are suffering from some form of chronic disease or some serious ailments, consider your physician before going for the trek. It’s better not to go for a trek than being seriously ill during the trek. Also, develop the mental endurance to complete the trek in new trekking destination.
Do I require previous trekking experience?
Not really. Many people without previous trekking experiences have completed their trekking in Nepal. Anyone with strong cardiovascular ability and good stamina can overcome the odds during trekking. However, previous experience makes your trekking more comfortable. Also consider that some trekking trails require you to have previous trekking experience; though the trails with this requirement are less in number.
What is the best trekking season for trekking in Nepal?
Except that you are going for trekking in the rain shadow areas of Upper Mustang during monsoon season, the best season for trekking in Nepal are the months of February to May and September to December. During winter many high passes are difficult to cross due to heavy snowfall. Lower elevations are generally open to trekking round the year.
Is Travel insurance mandatory for my trekking?
Yes. Travel insurance is mandatory and you are required to obtain it before you begin your trekking. Go for the travel insurance that covers helicopter rescue and medical evacuation even up to 6000 meters. Many insurance policies are limited to 4000 meters only. You must confirm with your insurance company about the nature of coverage your travel insurance policy shall cover. If you are already in Nepal without travel insurance, you need to consult with your travel company in Nepal for assistance in this regard.
What about the packing list for my trekking?
You can look at our comprehensive list for the detailed materials to be included in your packing list. But in general you can include a trekking pole, t-shirts, Khaki cargo pants, sturdy trekking boots, down jacket, waterproof poncho, warm fleece jacket, thermal underwear, wet wipes and thermal sleeping bags. Make sure you are not short of trekking gears and equipments in the mountains. For detailed list, contact us. We love to hear from you.
What kind of permits do I need for trekking?
You require any two of the three kinds of permits- Trekking Information Management System or TIMS, permits to enter national parks or conservation areas, and special permit are the permits we have for trekking in Nepal. Your trekking company shall take care of the kind of permits you shall need during your trek.
What kind of accommodation do we have during our trekking?
Unless you opt for deluxe trekking, the accommodation you shall be utilizing during the trekking is a decent teahouse. In few trekking destinations you may have to go for camping or sleeping in tents. In teahouse trekking we enjoy full board meals prepared by the lodge owners, running water (if not hot water), decent beds to sleep with blankets, and quilts being provided by them. In camping trekking you shall enjoy meals prepared by professional cooks and support staffs, and have a good quality tents to sleep in. Trekker s may also opt for home-stays in villages where such facilities are available to them. For better information on home-stays you need to contact with your trekking company.
How will we tackle with the problem of altitude sickness?
For altitude sickness, you shall be walking at normal pace, slowly and gradually (listen to your body!) while you ascent to higher altitude. Be properly hydrated and follow the standard itinerary and instructions provided by your guides. If symptoms like headache, difficulty in breathing and others occur (be informed about the symptoms and precautions about altitude sickness), convey it to your guide who will assess your condition. If symptoms worsen immediately descend to lower altitude and reach to nearby hospital.
Do I have to face flight delay or cancellation?
May be yes. Because the Himalayan weather can’t be reliable always, you may face flight delay. In monsoon season the problem is more often than in other seasons. To overcome this separate some extra days and prepare accordingly, identify other alternatives to enter and exit a particular trekking destination, and carry some cash to bear expenses in case of emergency.
What about carrying my stuffs during the trek?
If you hire a porter for trekking, you needn’t carry your stuffs. A porter and guide are generally arranged by your trekking company, though you may negotiate for only porter with your trekking company. You may have donkey or yaks to carry your baggage
How will I communicate with my people back in my native place?
The options for communication vary depending upon the trekking route you will be going for. In popular destinations like the Everest region you can find cyber cafes, mobile coverage and local VHF phones for communication. However, if you are going for some more remote destinations, you may have satellite phones as the only option for communication.
Is tipping the guide and porters necessary?
No. Giving tip to the guide and porters is not mandatory, though tipping is customary and always appreciated in Nepal. Your guides and porters will gladly appreciate this gratuity at the end of your trek, which helps them help their families in return. Providing tip to your trekking team is a good way to show your appreciation for their hard work and support to you.

Difficulties rating of Jomsom Muktinath Trek
A trekker or walker who is able to hike normally 5-6 hours per day carring a light weight backpack will be very fit enough to do this trekking. There are stone step up and down which are very uneven and due to some long descents your leg may feel shakey so we recommend to use walking poles to feel more safe. Normally, maximum altitude of the trek is 3800m, so you should be careful about altitude related risk. To get rid of it please walk slowly and have more water and avoid alcoholic drinks.

Safe drinking water on Jomsom Muktinath Trek
Basically, we can get mineral water bottles in lower places but as we go higher cannot find it. In that case we suggest you to drink boiled water which may charge small fee, found in tea houses and better to bring chlorine tablets to purify water. Due to no provision of plastic bottles better to use boiled rather than mineral water, helpful for protection of environment.

Recharging Batteries of Electronic Items On Jomsom Muktinath Trek
Hydro electricicty or solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like camera, batteries, ipod, iphone etc. Tea houses or lodges may charge small fee per hours for charging facilities. Better to buy adoptors before the trip since plugs are limited. In Nepal 220-240 volt power is used and sockets fit round and flat plugs.

Extra Advice for Jomsom Muktinath Trek
You may see some beautiful and sweet children and you may want to distribute ballons, chocolates, money and pens as many trekkers has feit same. But better not to do so because it encourages them to beg and ask to every trekkers.
In the trekking, keep your valuables safe. Do not left any thing anywhere. Ensure that you lock your door when you leave your room and do not hang anythings outside at night.

Garbage Disposal
Use a dustbins and do not throw anything into the fire. Carry garbages in the way where dustbin facilities is not available and conserve the environment.

Spending Money per Day
It mainly depends upon spending habits, normally you should allocate US$ 9-12 per meal in Kathmandu and Pokhara. On trekking, US$ 10-14 a day is good enough to buy drinks and chocolates.

Travel Insurance for Jomsom Muktinath Trek
You should be sufficiently protected and need to have travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, lost items, liabilities, injuries and medical treatment. Ensure the insurance covers all the activities in the himalayas. Trekking Planner can offer the appropriate medical response based on your policy and insurance.

Washing and Toilet facilities for Jomsom Muktinath Trek:
All the guest houses offers hot showers, which can be in bathroom or can be a bucket of hot water. Please note that at high altitude there may not be enough hot water for all the trekkers. Limit the use of hot water unless the water is solar heated or firewood for the ecological reason. Every lodge have some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. If the water frozed then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water.
Toilet are mainly Asian squat style. Basically toilet are outside your room and vary in how clean they are. You should not through toilet paper in the toilet hole rather you should use rubbish bin tht is kept inside the toilet.
