Qualification/Training

Best physical condition is required to trek in Nepal’s high altitude. Without some pre-trek training or a good level of basic fitness it can be hard. We suggest running, walking, hiking in the hill, climbing stairs rather than elevator to prepare for the trek. Include swimming, rowing, biking in your daily base training.

Basic further experience and strength required for Trekking

  • One should be able to hike for 6-7 hours a day.
  • One should be able to carry 8 kg themselves on backpack for preparation.
  • We suggest you to run about 4/5 miles in home for the preparation with some load on your back for 2 to 3 months to make yours climbing much more easier. Or use treadmill for everyday running and walking.
  • If you have uphill location/mountain then once a week you should go to hike with loaded bag pack on your back. If you do not have mountain and high hills then use stairs to go up/down than elevator.
  • Regular swimming, biking, rowing is also a good way to maintain your physical strength.
