Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

It is an easy level of hike,  suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 2-3 hours a day with a light rucksack. As we will get the highest elevation 2175 meters, you won’t have to worry about acute mountain sickness ( AMS) though you are preferred excellent health with average physical fitness then we can accomplish the trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Nepal of alternative treks before booking the hike.

Climate and weather

This hike is not very long. Similarly, this hike is not that difficult either. So, the climate or weather does not affect this that much. But you have to be careful on rainy days. Mostly, the Spring season of March, April, May, and Autumn seasons of September, October, and November would be the best time for this hike.

Safety and security

The authority will take care of your safety and security. They also take full care of your belongings. Similarly, they will make sure that you don’t have a problem during your trek. They will do anything for your comfort.
