With the coronavirus pandemic blowing worldwide, being an adventurous company, we can relate to the frustration of people who cannot explore new areas. To overcome this pandemic, we are happy to announce that Peregrine Treks and Tours have resumed their travel business. We have developed beautiful “Nepal Trekking Packages” to reward our travelers with a gift for being so calm and careful during this COVID pandemic and helping the world stay inside safely.
Nepal Trekking Packages are full of information to guide you through your new journey in our flamboyant country Nepal. Trekking in Nepal allows one to explore varieties of Nepalese terrain, rich biodiversity, cultural significance, and pure lustrous snowy peaks highlighting shiny glacial rivers along the trekking trails.
As Aesop once said, “Good things come in small packages” Nepal is a small country yet very diverse in terms of natural beauty and awe-inspiring mountains (it has the eight tallest mountains out of 10 world’s highest peaks), numerous glacial lakes, rivers, and streams along the trekking trails. Trekking in Nepal allows you to experience thrilling life adventures. It gives you satisfaction by walking in the lush forest of hills, passing by the rural indigenous settlements, and making yourself a part of it.
Once you set foot in our country, you will automatically feel the actual meaning of what Aesop wanted to say in his quote. Not that you would measure the actual size of Nepal, but you will be allured by the authentic aspects of Nepal, letting you not regret your choice and venturing Nepal Trekking Packages.
Nepal is geographically surrounded by China (on the north) and India (on three sides), leaving Nepal with the beautiful Himalayas and numerous trekking routes. Nepal is considered a fairyland for trekking; we have accumulated a list of the finest treks to give you the best taste of Nepal Trekking.
Like most places, Nepal also experiences different seasons throughout the year. But due to the vastly diverged geographical landscapes in a small area, the weather can vary from place to place. We have the highest mountain in the northern part of Nepal. The weather can be cold compared to the plain lands in the south, with temperatures rising to 45 degrees Celsius during the summer.
Out of the four major seasons in Nepal, Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn, the most favorable time falls during Spring and Autumn. However, with experience guiding, we will try to simplify the possible pros and cons of all the seasons existing in Nepal.
The weather can be rough during the winter when noticing the Nepal Trekking trails in higher elevations. There might be winter casualties like inaccessible passes due to heavy snowfalls and extreme falls in temperature.
However, if you are an avid trekker willing to taste the flavor of the winter trekking trail, mid-February is the best time for you. The trail is less crowded, exposing snow-capped mountain peaks, freshly frozen lakes, and streams through trekking routes.
A delightful season falls between March and May, bringing the rhododendron forest to bloom (Nepal’s national flower). The temperature (16-23°C) encourages trekkers to trek freely.
During the day, it is comparatively warmer and transparent, allowing you to see astounding panoramic mountain views. Also, trekkers can look at the snow melting in the bright sunlight. Another benefit of Nepal trekking in Spring is the excellent weather for flying to Nepal and within the country.
On the contrary, hiking in places with lower altitudes can be hot and feels sweatier due to the humidity. Moreover, the afternoon clouds might bring light rainfall, creating a hassle on the hike.
Nepal is landlocked and has a considerable precipitation rate; summer brings a heavy monsoon to Nepal. Calamities like floods, landslides, heavy traffic jams, and cancellation of domestic flights during this season, we do not recommend our trekkers choose this season for Nepal Trekking. Yet, Peregrine Trek and Tour can customize your trip and show you around better places to visit in Nepal according to the current season.
Last but not least, autumn brings the peak season for Nepal Trekking. The weather completely supports the trekkers starting with a warm, pleasant day and ending with a breezy night to cool off your exhaustion. A bright day and stable weather gift you with a royal blue sky and a beautiful mountain picturesque.
Being the best season for Nepal Trekking, Autumn can still bring some cons. The route throughout the trekking trails can be the busiest and most heavily crowded. If you plan to trek solo this season, acquiring on-the-spot accommodation facilities might be challenging. Hence, you can enjoy the best time for Nepal Trekking without any inconvenience with Peregrine Treks and Tour.
Packing for travel is very tricky work to do. People often tend to overpack, thinking they might use all their gear during the journey. Packing for trekking also depends on the assistance of a porter.
Here in Peregrine, we provide one porter for every two clients. A porter’s maximum weight is 30 kg, giving you the perfect reason to pack your bags responsibly.
Here is a list of the essential gear you will need to pack for Nepal trekking.
After three months of the Covid-19 lockdown, Nepal has eased off its lockdown from the 21st of July. The government has decided to open domestic and international flights from the 17th of August.
Once the airport is open, you can book the flight to Nepal according to your package detail after arriving at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu, where one of our representatives will receive you at the terminal. You will then be transferred to your designated hotel and meet your trekking guide and team.
Requirements for entry
To our passionate global trotters, we highly recommend you have a travel insurance policy that covers medical problems, theft and loss, and adventure activities. You can inquire about the better options in your insurance policy.
If you are trekking above 4000 meters of altitude, we suggest you take an insurance policy covering medical and emergency rehabilitation. In addition, you can select an emergency helicopter evacuation policy. Make sure your medical insurance covers the pay of doctors and hospitals instead of you having to pay bills on the spot and claim the insurance later on.
Trekkers’ safety is our main priority; however, one can never predict casualties in the wilderness. Hence, all of us must take safety measures pre-hand.
Our Nepal Trekking Packages are tea-house treks. We will book the lodge after confirmation of the trek. We will provide you with the best accommodation according to the services available at the respective destination.
You will be staying in one of the finest hotels in the city areas, like Kathmandu and Pokhara. After you log onto your trek, the accommodations will be slightly changed. As the altitude increases, the lodges and tea houses will be fewer. But you don’t have to worry about it as we will book your stay where you can have basic facilities like a hot shower, a good bed, sanitized toilets, and proper electricity.
Regarding food, we have a famous proverb, “Dal Bhat power 24 hours,” where Dal is lentil sauce, and Bhat is rice. Dal Bhat is a traditional Nepalese dish that is very nutritious and gives you energy throughout the trek. According to the availability, you can have various seasonal vegetables, greens, and non-veg food items along with Dal Bhat.
In addition, you can also order other delicacies like Momo, chow mean (noodles), fried rice, chapatis, etc., according to the availability on the menu. Nepal is rich in food culture; depending on which trek you choose, you can enjoy the cultural food of Tamang, Sherpa, Magars, Newars, etc., on trial.
Joining the adventure venture in 2002, Peregrine Treks and tour have become “Pioneers in Adventure Tourism.” We believe we can help you to discover treasure in your leisure period by planning your trekking vigorously and providing you with the services and satisfaction you desire and deserve.

In Peregrine, we aim to provide the best services, including the best guides, porters, good food and accommodation, and a heartful experience and satisfaction. We are hopeful that our prices are reasonable enough to justify our services.
We are on the verge of improving ourselves to be responsible service providers and encourage our clients to be equally accountable for our environment. Every individual tries to minimize personal waste and not leave any carbon footprint on the trekking trails.
We utilize and contribute financial aid to communities along our trekking trails; in 2014, we set up “The Peregrine Foundation.” Every year we donate some collective percentage of the company’s profit, aiding the development of the local communities.

Trekking in Nepal will undoubtedly be the most fantastic experience due to the stunning scenery and terrain. Most of the adventure is ideal for group trekking, with 10 to 11 trekkers in one group. There will be one guide for each of the six trekkers. On the other hand, there will be one porter to carry the bag packs and other gear for every two trekkers. Also, we can coordinate both single private treks and treks with your trekking group for you. During the private trip, you will have a single guide and porter, allowing you to experience every element of the adventure.
Nepal is the world’s second-richest country in terms of water resources. Nevertheless, a certain amount of water shortage will exist in the Alpine area throughout the dry season. However, up to this point, there has yet to be a water crisis, whether trekking or taking an incredible excursion across the Himalayas. Simply purchasing a water purification tablet can significantly assist you in cleaning both spring water and tap water. Additionally, you may get a bottle of water from the neighborhood cafes and small stores. After consuming the water, we advise you to put the plastic bottle in the garbage or carry it with you.
Acclimatization to high altitudes is critical while trekking. Altitude sickness from 2000 meters to 3000 meters will always be a possibility. As a result, when trekking, you must give your body a break and eat frequently. The body must be hydrated, and the amount of oxygen in the body should rise with altitude. Altitude acclimatization is quite effective in this regard. Similarly, to reduce the risk of altitude sickness, use an acetazolamide tablet to keep the body’s oxygen levels stable. The acclimatization varies on the itineraries, and our itineraries usually include an acclimatization day to allow our trekkers to relax and continue their trek without difficulty.
Protection will always come first when you travel with us. Whatever the adventure, we won’t take any risks, regardless of how simple they may be. The entire crew professionally conducts themselves while offering guidance in a very modest way. Furthermore, before the expedition, we will handle all your permit-related details for you and your travel insurance. Also, our guests’ safety and security will always be on top.
Moreover, we will only spend time keeping you out of difficulty at every turn of the expedition. Our guides are constantly prepared with medical supplies and other resources necessary for the trek. Additionally, our crew will connect well with the medical staff and the rescue team.
Depending on the region, Nepal’s terrain formation varies. The Himalayas and the hilly region have extensive topography, which would require more effort to traverse than the plain terrain in the Terai. There will be phenomenal rivers, gorges, waterfalls, and valleys to cross. Trekking in Nepal will be more complex than you might have thought. Most adventures will take you 4000 meters above the clouds and render you to navigate trials and tricky terrain. Before embarking on the journey, you must maintain your postural stability. It will be more beneficial to you if you are physically fit and have a solid knowledge of Nepal’s topographical conditions. Along the route, we’ll be there to help you to the fullest by making guidance on trekking through terrain and beautiful landscapes.
In the setting of Nepal, the weather is more pleasant as well as riskier. Altitude commonly affects Nepal’s weather patterns. Predicting the weather will be challenging at a high altitude, particularly in the summer. Other than this, passing through Nepal’s hilly terrain will be fine. The easiest way to ensure pleasant weather when trekking is to forecast the weather, or you may trek during the best seasons, like spring and autumn. There won’t be any clouds or fogs to obscure the view throughout the spring and autumn when the weather will be perfect with little rain making the trail suitable for trekking.
We make the excursion enjoyable and enjoyable for our guests of all gender identities. The tour includes a wide range of activities that will completely surprise you. The body’s endurance is crucial if you want to experience this excitement more thoroughly. Of course, you will feel exhausted throughout the expedition, but we don’t want you to quit in the middle. For this reason, you should start getting in shape with suitable activities before the four weeks of trekking. Porters will be available to carry your heavy backpacks during the trek, so this will be fine. We will also provide you with the necessary trekking equipment, such as sleeping bags and poles.
Moreover, workouts such as stretching and jogging, as well as cycling and climbing uphill, will be necessary. Therefore, trekking across Nepal will be easy if you have the proper mental and physical stability. Proper fitness is critical to the expedition’s accomplishment.

Similarly, using ATMs is straightforward and trouble-free. Furthermore, locating ATMs and banks will be challenging if you want to trek to Nepal’s remote and Himalayan regions. As a result, you may use the ATMs in Pokhara and Kathmandu, which take all major cards from across the world.
Travel insurance is essential when visiting Nepal. Traveling in Nepal may be challenging due to the country’s complicated geography and unpredictable climate. The tranquil environment of Nepal could deliver something unexpected. Similarly, while trekking at an unusual time, a rescue effort can be essential at some point. Travel insurance will enable you to maintain monetary stability throughout the rescue operation. You may obtain travel insurance from Pokhara or Kathmandu by summarizing your itinerary, providing your passport, and submitting a photograph. Including helicopter rescue beyond 5000m altitude in the process of travel insurance would be more helpful to you.
Nepal finds it challenging to accept those with disabilities. Nepal’s scenery, geography, weather, and overall topographical condition put individuals worldwide to the challenge. However, several such facilities will aid disabled persons in various ways. There are also helicopter packages, jeep trips, and other options for these people.
