Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.
Nepal is a landlocked country which lies in Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Nepal has monsoonal climate having four main seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.
Below is a general guide to conditions at different seasons:
January to March (winter): In this season temperature will decrease at often 0°C (32°F) at night, with extreme cold at high elevations. It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
October to December (autumn): These months are cool and clear which is due to the end of monsoon, there is little dust in the air so this is the best season to visit the hilly and mountainous regions.

Everest View Trek
16 – 27 November 2016
Absolutely superb company!
Why? Because Kedar Neupane, founder and CEO, really cares about very high quality and taking care of you. Amazingly efficient, cheerful and helpful from the moment you contact him [my English emails received an immediate automatic reply and shortly after he, or his brother Sujane, personally replied], and the staff at his beautifully organised, homely Alpine Hotel in Kathmandu are also charming and courteous.
And then, of course, there’s your guide! Kedar makes sure you meet him in your hotel, to go through anything you need, to check itinerary and schedules, and, who will then show you some fascinating [and moving] places in Kathmandu. Our guide was Bashudev Sapkota; incredibly efficient, kind, courteous, funny and informative, it was a privilege to get to know him. He managed, in his excellent English, to teach us two new card games and at least one joke [that’s not bad…I’m hopeless at remembering jokes!] during our evening meals around the wood-burning stove in the trek lodge.
We’re looking forward so much to seeing them all again in 2018; next time Annapurna trek from Pokhara and the Chitwan National Park.
A few details and tips you may find useful:
- I’m 67 years old, my wife 65
- We did the 12 day Everest View Trek [part of Everest Base Camp trek] 16 – 27 November 2016. The weather: always bright blue, clear skies, though on the last two days some early morning mist
- Highest point of the trek: Tengboche at 3870m
- We had no problems from altitude. I only had a mild breathlessness on dropping-off to sleep
- Easy to get a Nepal visa, either in London or at Kathmandu airport
- Take Water-To-Go water-filter bottles. We’ve used them throughout Europe, India and now in Nepal. Fill-up from streams, hotel and trek-house taps, etc even stagnant ponds, and we’ve never had any upsets. You also never need to buy or discard plastic water bottles! And at the airport, empty pre-Security and re-fill once you’re through…..nice!
- Eve temps in November drop to around 2 C, so we took our own down-filled sleeping-bags [the Vango 600 from Blacks]. They were warm and cozy
- The 35mins flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is wonderful. The small [about 18 seats] twin-engined plane is very stable and surprisingly powerful and views from either side are spectacular
- The stretchy neck-warmers are great for pulling up over your nose and mouth when the trail gets very dusty from the yak, donkey etc ‘train’ that often ‘cow-bell’ passed [you keep to ‘hill’ side!]
- Plenty of food variety at the lodges, including porridge and the ‘24 hour power’ food, daal bhaat [rice, lentils and vegetable curry].
- You have your own room, in our case most often twin-bedded, and on a number of occasions en suite.
A spectacular and wonderful trip, which also happened to be great fun, made possible by Kedar and his super team.
