Trek Grading

It is impossible to have a 'foolproof' grading system as everyone has different expectations and perceptions of their own fitness level. Remember that no trek in the Himalaya is a stroll as all involve going up and down at altitude and that altitude affects everyone differently. Regardless of age or fitness, preparation before you arrive is essential. Aerobic activity, swimming, cycling or brisk walking is recommended or, at the very least, walk up and down stairs in your trekking boots but some can do this trekking without did any preparation of trekking.

Money

It should be better to bring the USD in Nepal. Because you can change everywhere easily.

You should exchange enough money into Nepalese Rupees to last the entire time of your trek before leaving Kathmandu. You can find the money exchange counters near your hotel and there are no exchange facilities in villages / trekking trails if they change they will take more commission.

Your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, medical expenses, emergency evacuation and repatriation (including helicopter evacuation) and personal liability. is included trekking crews' against personal accident.

Health

There are no specific health requirements for travel into Nepal. However, for the trekking in Himalayas, you are in excellent health with average physical fitness and have positive attitude, self confidence and strong determination, you can accomplish this trek successfully but you should consult your doctor for up-to-date information regarding vaccinations, high altitude medication and medications for any reasonably foreseeable illnesses whilst traveling in Nepal. Some part of trekking have a small health post for emergency treatment with limited equipment, limited health workers and medication. Be aware that some drugs, including anti-malarial, have side effects at altitude. Please discuss this carefully with your doctor.

Please be aware that you will be in remote areas and away from medical facilities for some time during this trip. We strongly recommend that you carry a personal First Aid kit as well as sufficient quantities of any personal medical requirements (including a spare pair of glasses).

High Altitude Sickness

AMS (acute mountain sickness) is a serious issue. It is the result of the failure of the body to adapt to high altitude and can affect anyone, regardless of age or fitness. It usually occurs above 1,800 meters and the likelihood of being affected increases as you ascend. The way to reduce the affects of altitude is to ascend slowly, 300 meters per day above 3,000 meters until you have acclimatized. Poor acclimatization results in headache, nausea, sleeplessness, difficulty breathing and swelling of fingers and glands. The only cure for AMS is to descend to lower altitude and your guide's decision on this matter is final. When you are planning to trek above 3,000 meters we recommend not walks faster. If you will get altitude sickness please consult with your guide to go down at least 500 meters to recover.

Amazing journey with amazing team

(5/5)
Had an amazing journey though Langtang Valley, end of Sept 2017. Himalaya trekking team members are like my family now, we went through the journey together, spent quality time and cared for each other. Mr Uttam is a very humble, knowledgeable and friendly guide to be with. The porters were so caring and compassionate. Every member of the team went extra miles to support the trekkers to ensure safe and enjoyable journey. I will not look elsewhere for trekking company in Nepal. I found the best and closest team to my heart. Next, preparing for EBS with Himalaya Trekking Team. For those who are planning or even thinking about trekking the Himalaya, don't hesitate to contact Mr. Uttam, he guided me from basic and today I can claim myself to have stepped on and received the blessings from Himalaya. Thanks to Uttam and his team for that amazing experience.

Langtang Valley Trek

(5/5)
We book to trek Everest base camp on 17 Sep 2016 but due to bad weather in Lukla flights were cancelled for 2 day and since we did not have much time we change our trek to Langtang. It was a 10 day trek guided by Uttam. Oud guide Uttam is a young man but very experience and alert in his job, Uttam is usually walk last in the group but thats is only for a few kilometres once he spot the weakest team member he walks behind the member like a shadow. He is quick to grab the member when he slips. ( I slip more then 10 times I am 57 years old) I would assure you that Himilayan trekking team with take care of you well and their staff are all well train by OB the GURU. best of luck to the team.
