Best time to travel

October-November is the best time for a trek. It's not as hot as it is during the summer, but also not too cold. There is a slight chance of snow. You will need a good, warm sleeping bag for the nights above 4,000 meters.


Convertible pants are convienent, even though bare legs are not appreciated in Nepal. You obviously need good hiking boots and a warm jacket and sweater for the day at high altitude. Bring T-shirts you can miss, the guide and the carriers will be grateful for clothes you give them.


Not everyone likes to be photographed. Make it clear you want to take a picture by nodding with a question mark on your face. If they don't want it, they'll walk away, if it's okay, they'll nod. If you want to be sure, ask the guide to ask for you.


There are new rules concerning permits. The main thing is that you don't need a permit any more for many regions. There is much contradictory information, so try and find out what you can before your trip.


Compare car rent
