Trekking Seasons in Nepal

Trekking Seasons in Nepal

Trekking is the most sought after adventurous activity in Nepal due to which it attracts thousands of foreign tourists all year around to its grandeur landscapes of Himalayan terrains. Having a great combination of natural and cultural diversity, Nepal offers incredible trekking destinations which bewilder the minds and eyes of its visitors. Beyond doubt, these things make Nepal a perfect place for trekkers to come and explore it’s exotic trekking routes.

After having said that, Nepal is a country where trekking can be done throughout the year but nevertheless there are some best seasons in which trekking in Nepal becomes extraordinarily good. To continue, Spring and Autumn seasons are considered as the best trekking season in all over Nepal. Presently the weather and climatic conditions of these seasons make them the finest time of the year when trekkers can enjoy the scenic Himalayan panorama and walk amongst beautiful trek routes without any disturbances along their way. The seasonal month of Spring begins from March to end of May and during these months the weather starts to warm up with a little bit of rainfall here and there. Additionally, the rhododendron forests start blossoming up to charm their visitors with unique blend of mesmerizing natural colors. Next will be the Autumn season which is also considered by many as the most favorable trekking season of Nepal. Mainly because the temperature remains moderate which allows trekking in higher altitudes easy with crystal clear open skies without much clouds to block the views of the snow-capped mountains. The trek routes normally tend to get over crowded and teahouses get every room booked for trekkers walking along their trail. During the autumn months of mid-September, October and November valleys remain lush with thriving vegetation and wildlife which can add to the exquisiteness to one’s travel in Nepal.

Excluding Spring and Autumn seasons we still have Summer/Monsoon (June-August) and Winter (December-February) seasons which are not generally preferred by trekkers so the trek routes have less number of tourists traveling through them. However, if you are the one that likes walking on a trail with less tourists jampacking their way alongside you then you may try going for trek in these seasonal months too. But be wary that it gets below zero up in the Himalayan regions where normally you would want to trek to and so you have to prepare your body to survive in these kinds of high altitude winter climates. Just like that in the Monsoon months, the trail tends to become muddy, slippery and most importantly covered with leaches, so if these things don’t bother you then just book a trip to Nepal as trekking companies always welcomes tourists who are willing to visit it even during the off seasons.

To conclude, we would just like to say that if you’re planning to trek in Nepal then you have various options at our disposal to help you get the most of our trekking packages. Contact us today and go on a never forgetting trip in Nepal with our expert trekking team.

Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance

If you are a traveler who loves wandering into different nations without prior knowledge about the designated travel routes, then you have to stop yourself for a while and think about Travel Insurance first of all. We understand that traveling is fun and it can be a joyous moment for each and every person who prefers traveling abroad for that exotic feeling of getting close with nature personally. But, you also have to understand that without a proper dependable Travel Insurance you may get into a lot of trouble which you initially didn’t want to get involved with.

Trekking requires you to have a good physical and health condition but even if you have a required amount of physical capabilities, you still can get into some troublesome situations which may not be thought of by you during your travel. Trekkers and travelers who decide in trekking at higher altitudes are requested to purchase a highly reliable travel insurance which covers high altitude trekking with emergency helicopter evacuation if you’re planning to visits places like Everest Base Camp. As the treks which tend to go above 4,000 meters are considered to be more challenging and requires trekkers to have a keen sense of judgement to walk through the bewildering mountain terrains of Nepal. In short, trekking at high altitudes, between 2,000 and 6,000 meters will eventually become an exhilarating experience with some possibility to sustain injuries, therefore it is of great need that trekkers should get covered by a Travel Insurance prior to coming to Nepal.

With problems ranging from High Altitude Pulmonary Edema, Nausea, Hypothermia, Exhaustion, Headaches, Sun burn, Frost bite, Shortness of breath, Increased heartbeat and other accidental injuries which can happen to anyone, it is very important to get yourself a proper Travel Insurance. Many factors can degrade the physical performance of trekkers so it is quite impossible to predict when you might succumb to the high elevation environment. Not just that, but if you carry some kind of expensive/valuable belongings which you don’t want to get damaged then having a Travel Insurance can cover their losses too if they get stolen or damaged during your travelling period.

So, in a general perspective, having a “Travel Insurance” can help you if any bad things happen to you and during accidents when your life is in danger. Thus, we recommend that you get yourself a dependable Travel Insurance to ensure your safety during your visit in Nepal.

Weather in Nepal

Weather in Nepal

Situated between China to the north and India to the east, west and south, Nepal is a small landlocked country covering an estimated land area of 147,181 sq.km. Since the past decades, Nepal has been collectively known as one of the best travel destination in South East Asia for many travelers and explorers, mainly due to its amazing variety of topological climate.

To begin, the geographical coordinate of Nepal is 28 00 N and 84 00 E which give it an influential weather conditions of maritime and continental factors. Fundamentally, Nepal is divided into three particular regions of Terai Region, Hilly Region and Mountain Region from south to north direction. In the most part of Nepal, the weather and climate of a particular place depends mostly on it attitudinal features which in general has been divided into five climatic zones which are: Tropical and subtropical zone, Cool and temperate zone, cold zone, subarctic zone and arctic zone. Nepal’s latitude is nearly as about as Florida which makes the Terai region exist in a place with tropical and subtropical climatic zone. Nonetheless, the Hilly region and Himalayan region differ very differently with the sudden increase in the elevation of each of their location.

In particularity, the Kathmandu Valley with an average summer temperature of 19°C – 35°C & winter temperature of 2°C – 12°C, consists a pleasing climatic condition which makes it a perfect place for arrival of all the International Flights. Beginning from March to May, the spring season is warm with time to time rain showers and the temperatures tend to be around 22°C. Next is summer season which lasts from June to August and also is the monsoon season during which heavy amounts of rainfall occurs throughout due to which vegetation flourish extravagantly all over the nation. This time period of the year is mostly unfavorable for trekking in general but some places like Upper Mustang and Dolpa regions can be trekked without any heavy rainfalls obscuring the trails. Now comes the most liked Autumn season which starts from September to November, during which temperature is not too warm nor too cold, making it a perfect time for trekking in Nepal. The daily average temperature lies between 25°C and 10°C. Now comes the snowy Winter season which begins from December to end of February. Snowfalls are common in the higher elevations with temperature going below zero but the lower regions of Terai can have a maximum temperature of 20°C during the day.

Health Problems and Medicine

Health Problems and Medicine

Trekking in Nepal is a very pleasurable form of activity which allows trekkers to travel in beautiful valleys with incredible views of snow-capped mountains while learning about the cultural diversity of ethnic communities living alongside their trek routes. However, trekkers need to remain wary about their health condition and safety during their entire trek as accidents can happen anytime without any prior warnings. So, you must consider about Health Problems which you may have to face.

If you have a fit physical condition with a hunger for adventure then Nepal has a lot of various trekking destinations which can be a challenging experience for them. Consider carrying a basic first-aid-kit which can be bought at low price anywhere in a medical shop as a first step to prioritizing your health and safety. But it won’t save you if you have any kind of internal injuries so be very wary about where you trek. Along with that, do consider purchasing some medicines to help you fight your illness if it were to happen. Make sure to carry a variety of clothing’s for diverse weather conditions, drink enough amount of pure drinking water, use hand sanitizer when possible to disinfect your hands prior to eating your food and if you want to prevent sun burns then do carry a sunscreen and a hat with you. Look, these are basic things which should be taken into notice by trekkers themselves but if they become careless then it might hamper their health in the long run. So, it’s better to be prepared than to be sorry later.

Additionally, trekkers who are planning to trek in high altitudes above the range of 3,000 meters above sea level then they are requested to learn about High Altitude Sickness which can be a major factor to determine the end result of their entire trek. Some other things to keep in mind is that one should always trek with a local expert trekking guide with years of experience to help you overcome several hurdles and navigate your trail till the end. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol during your trip as they can degrade your health and make you less fit for your travel the next day.

Hypoxia

Hypoxia

The term hypoxia is a medical condition where the cells of our organs do not receive adequate amount of oxygen due to the insufficient concentration of oxygen molecules in the blood. The lack of oxygen can in the blood, in time can cause severe long term effect to the human body which include a permanent damage to the brain and other vital organs. Each and every tissue in the human body needs to proportionally receive oxygen always in order to function and perform the important biological processes to keep a human alive.

If you’re blood doesn’t carry enough oxygen & nutrients to your body parts then it will later on be the main cause of Hypoxia which can be lethal for one’s survival. Therefore, I am about to discuss the causes, symptoms and preventive measures so that you can learn about Hypoxia in depth.

Symptoms:

Although, the symptoms for Hypoxia can differ from person to person, I have listed down the most occurred common symptoms of Hypoxia below:

  • Rapid breathing
  • Confusion
  • Sweating
  • Fast heart beat rate
  • Changes in the color of your skin, ranging from blue to cherry red
  • Wheezing
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Causes:

Hypoxia or Hypoxemia, these are very dangerous conditions as it means your body is not getting required dose of oxygen through your blood. It is to keep in mind that without oxygen, your brain, liver &other organs can be damaged just minutes after symptoms start. Some common causes of it are as below:

  • Hypotension, which is extremely low blood pressure
  • Strong pain medicines and other drugs that hold back breathing
  • Stroke, cardiac arrest, and an irregular heartbeat
  • Choking
  • Anemia (a low number of red blood cells, which carry oxygen)
  • Drowning
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Cyanide poisoning
  • strangulation
  • traveling to high altitudes
  • brain injury
  • ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)

How to prevent Hypoxia?

When the oxygen levels in the blood start getting under 90 percent, a person will certainly get affected by Hypoxia. In that case, the individually affected person needs to receive immediate medical attention. It is vital that the level of oxygen circulating from the blood to the cells and tissues of the body reach a normal level, as if the oxygen level remain low, the individual person may even die. So, it is highly recommended that you should always monitor your certain health conditions.

Make appointments with a doctor and check if your blood pressure is too low.If you’re asthmatic then I hope I don’t have to say that you should keep your inhaler nearby at all times. Additionally, avoid trekking in high altitudes if you think you might succumb to the environment of high altitudes.Lastly, as the Hypoxia gets worse trekkers need to receive immediate medical attention because they require high amount of medical supervision from that point onward in order to remain alive.
