Tips for Hiking and Trekking

Nepal offers some of the world's best trekking opportunities, but there are some things you know before you get started.

The high terrain of Nepal is a good workout, but it can also be quite dangerous if you are not prepared. You need to be physically fit before embarking on a trekking journey. A combination of aerobic and cardio exercises will be particularly useful, but the best thing you can do is build up your leg strength by walking or running regularly. Additionally, you will want to get some practice on steep hills or stairs. In Nepal, it is definitely not going to be flat ground. The more prepared you are for walking uphill for long periods of time, the better. You should also have your doctor check your physical health to make sure your body can head up those mountains.

Good hiking shoes are important. You need to find some that are not only comfortable and lightweight but also have a good grip and protect your feet from foreign elements. Proper fit is very important, so try to have a store employee help you out in that regard. It helps to wear them before using them on a large trek so you aren't surprised. You could go on some hikes in your area or just walk around at the park to see how they wear.

Next, you should prepare your packing bag. When going on long and steep treks, it is important to keep things as lightweight as possible. Try to pack light clothes that are, but you will need some heavy clothing for the cold temperatures. It is also good to bring clothing that will protect against the rain. Again, wearing layers is one of the best ways to handle Nepal's climate. If necessary, there will be someone to help carry your main bag, but you will also need to bring a smaller bag to hold your everyday personal items.

Make sure to stay fit and have a feel for what it's like to trek before leaving for Nepal. It will help to be prepared if you want to get the most out of the country's breathtaking scenery and enjoy the company of the trekkers around you. If you are ready for this journey at the beginning, you will leave with a wonderful sense of pride and accomplishment at the end. Come see what trekking in Nepal is all about!
