Short Hiking in Annapurna or Long Hiking in Annapurna?

Even though the hike is of 6 hours duration, many hikers take a long time because they love the natural wonders and capture them in cameras which is eye-catching.

But the people who just love to hike Gosaikunda can go directly without trekking to Langtang either from Syabrubesi or from Melamchi after the Lauribinayek pass 4610m. If you are a religious hiker, Gosaikunda trek gives you the added benefit of Mountain scenery with religious aspects.

Gokyo RI and Everest base camp hike is the superior list of prime hiking destinations in Nepal as well as in the world. It's surely the best trekking route in Nepal and the people who love to hike must know its name. It’s not too easy to do hikes like walking in a park. It’s categorized as one of the difficult hikes in Nepal. For many hikers dreaming to catch its glorious view from the summit of Chola pass, Everest Base Camp as well as Kalapatthar and Gokyo. The views are astonishing in this 17 days in Nepal.

The Gokyo RI is one of the iconic natural peaks just alongside Mt. Cho-Oyu due to its natural wonders.

Even though Cho la pass is classified as difficult hiking, it’s no doubt with a small prior trekking experience and some information about AMS can help to complete it. With the hospitality of well-recognized trekking Sherpa’s, strong porters who help to carry your heavy luggage, with normal physical fitness and our best information around 90% hikers summit already.

It’s very risky without a guide or prior mountain skills and information to trek here. Some tourists died due to their lack of information and forced trek without the holiday durations. But Chola pass trek is not the deadliest multi day hiking in Nepal like Dhaulagiri hiking routes with French pass.

Trekking to Chola pass takes 8 to 10 hours and some steep sections with ice. We will suggest all trekkers bring microspikes and good hiking boots with Gore-Tex or waterproof but climbing equipment not essential for this hiking.

Cho La Pass trekking is not scary but for the awesome Himalayan scene with lakes, glaciers and icefalls. This hike is surely worth it for all international and domestic alpine trekkers.

Essential information to recognize prior hiking to Nepal

Multi-Day hiking in the Himalayas in and around the earth might possibly be dangerous as the Himalayas have their own weather and climate change suddenly.

In the short duration the weather will be sunny and blue skies and in a few minutes it will be heavy snowing or foggy. Clouds cover all the mountains and can be raining quickly.

Restricted and protected regions of Nepal can be travelled through reputed trekking companies in Nepal. Like Upper Dolpo trek, Upper Mustang Trek, Tsum valley and so on.

Hiking Everest is riskier than other parts due to the flight to Lukla airport being more risky and canceling the flight instantly due to weather. There are few cases of aeroplane accidents. When flight occurs from Kathmandu the weather is clear but after 30 minutes when going to land it will be bad and can cause accidents sometimes.

Hike to the Himalayas in Nepal is more risky due to AMS sickness that means few hikers are unable to adapt to the altitude and oxygen level. So take precautions and consult with an experienced guide before hiking there. Otherwise, altitude can kill which makes your holiday worse as well as family sour forever due to your hiking holiday in Nepal.

Best or Supreme time to Hike Nepal

Suitable and appropriate hiking period in Nepal normally all year around but pre-monsoon and post monsoon are the supreme periods.

In the peak season like April and October find the lodges in higher elevations and busy hiking routes a bit troublesome like Mardi Himal, Annapurna Base camp and Everest Base Camp a few villages.

Pre-monsoon period is a more warm and suitable time for flower and photography whereas Post Monsoon period is another trekking seasons  in Nepal due to clear skies and many festivals occur in this period.

In winter we suggest hiking at lower elevation until 3500 meters. The reason for this is piles of snow covering the higher passes makes it quite impossible for trekking. Furthermore, due to excessive cold tea houses are closed.

Monsoon period is the best time to visit off the beaten less rainy parts of Nepal like Upper mustang and Dolpo regions.

How to survive with altitude in Nepal Himalayas?

Nepal Himalayas are the highest mountain in the world that mean mountain sickness or higher elevation associated problems can occur. When Multiday hikes over 2500 meters ASL you need to think positive first you will hike just normal hiking like lower elevations.

Hiking rapidly does not allow your health a suitable time to adapt to altitude and oxygen, which means hikers do not acclimatize with the oxygen and pressure. Stay hydrated, hiking slowly and take enough rest and relish the scenery are the precautions.

The categorization of altitude sickness is very arduous so it can be compared just with your hiker mates. If you feel some symptoms please do not hesitate to share with your hikers partner or hiking guide.

If you hike alone you must go back to lower elevation as soon as you can.

Ams Can Kill?

Nepal Hiking Gears:

We already mentioned above that the Himalayas' weather and climate change instantly so the chief moral is to prepare hiking layers. Due to temperature changes rapidly in the Himalayas, you need to prepare proper clothes according to climate and weather.

Grab the chance you get it. Consult with guides for local culture, make many photographs for your future memory.

How to travel inside Nepal?

Train:

There are no train facilities in Nepal.

Flights:

Till Today Nepal has just 1 international airport named Tribhuvan international Airport in the capital city of Kathmandu Nepal.

If you are trekking in the Everest region, you can take a domestic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla or Kathmandu to Phaplu.

If you want to go trekking to Kanchenjunga you can fly either Kathmandu to Suketar, Kathmandu to Biratnagar or Kathmandu to Bhadrapur. The best suitable option is Kathmandu to Suketar if you find the flights.

Those who desire to trek Annapurna can take a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara.

For those willing to hike Dolpo, you can take a flight to Nepaljung.  From there take a flight to Jhupal and vice versa when returning.

Bus:

Buses are more suitable backpacking trips options in Nepal for reaching the hiking starting points. If you are trekking to Annapurna circuit, you can drive to Besisahar. If you trek ABC Camp, take a bus to Pokhara or Nayapul. If you trek Kanchenjunga, take a bus to Taplejung. And return respectively.

Private vehicle:

Private vehicles are more suitable options after flights. Hikers have more flexibility in time and routes with private vehicle options. Depending on trek start points, a car or 4 wheel jeep are available in Kathmandu and major cities.

Tourist Bus:

Tourist buses are available only from Kathmandu to Pokhara and return among the several trekking routes. Other hiking routes and tourist buses are not available.

Food and Alcoholic drinks in Nepal:

Many tourist restaurants are available in major cities and touristic places like Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, and Lumbini. Busy trekking routes also offer many food options. Mostly Nepali Meal Dal Bhat (a set of Rice, Vegetable, Soup of different beans, Pickle, Different curry, a dry bread-papad with veggie or meat) available all over Nepal. That meal is a buffet for all domestic or international hikers with a single price.

Alcoholic drinks are very expensive in Nepal. We will warmly suggest not to drink alcohol in higher elevation Nepal hiking. Like 1 bottle of beer costs US$ 6 to 10. A glass of wine will be US$ 10 as well in touristic restaurants.

Conclusion:

In a nutshell, we suggest that beginner hikers opts for the Dhampus Sarangkot 3 days hiking route near Pokhara. Whereas for moderate trekkers we suggest to hike Annapurna Base Camp or Everest Base Camp.

Summer season hikers are suggested to choose Dolpo treks. Upper Dolpo hiking route bless you with more attractions than that of lower Dolpo treks.

For the professionals we will suggest Manaslu Circuit, Chola pass or Annapurna Circuit Treks. For peace and quiet trekkers, Kanchenjunga hiking is the best option.
