Nepal is full of awe with its nature bliss sceneries, cultural richness and known for the warm hospitality of people. Travelers would not have face any difficulties sightseeing in the tourist area, but when you are enjoying in the very lap of the Himalayas, you might face some challenges as you are being exposed to the absolute new environment than you are used to. Most of the Trekkers are well informed about how to manage themselves in the nature, but still few numbers of trekkers have to face some difficulties, and even some small numbers go missing or lose their lives. Travelers cannot stop themselves from enjoying the nature, so what they can do is be well informed, and be prepared as much as they can about the conditions and how to handle different situations in the nature itself.
Things you should know while on the trail
Of course you will be amazed by the super amazing views, but at the same time you will also realize how far you have come from your comfort zone and basic facilities what we are used to like local shops, medical institutions, home settlements. You would meet these basic facilities less, and it also depends on which trail you are venturing into. Even a slight pain in your knees or small wounds can be dangerous if you are not be careful. Things you should keep in mind:
Do not travel alone: People do like to have their own personal space while traveling, but we would recommend you to travel with a partner especially in the mountains, because a friend can be a life saver if you fall sick or have altitude sickness. They can also be a very good companion during the whole trip and also a support, as they can help you for looking after your things while you are gone somewhere, and lastly act as a help if you get lost.
Keen eye on the trail: You might lose your way if you just keep your eye on the views so, do be very careful and maintain a keen eye on the narrow trails.
Giving way to porters: You might be sharing trails with porters, yaks, mules who would be carrying heavy loads of weight it would be a kind gesture and also a safety measure if you kindly give way to them. When a mule or yaks approach near you do give way to them by climbing up a steep for avoiding being knocked down.
Weather conditions: The weather in the Himalayas can be unpredictable as there might be thunderstorms and others. So do update yourself timely about the weather conditions and if the weather seems to go bad, you must stay in a safe place rather than continuing your journey.
Landslides: You will be traveling through ups and downs of the hills, which might be prone to landslides mainly in the rainy season (June to August), so maintain a keen eye on the trail you are walking and if you happen to face a landslide, keep in mind to move one person at a time and a friend at the back keeping an eye on the area, if something falls from above.
Emergency Kit: Make sure you carry an emergency kit which includes necessary medical supplies, whistle, torch, map, energy meals, and raincoat. Do remember to carry medical supplies on your own as if you are traveling with a guide, the guide won’t supply you with any medicine as he is not authorized to supply any kind of medicine to anyone.
Have a flexible mind set: Keep in mind that you are traveling in nature and you are here to experience a new environment, and culture. We advise travelers to maintain an open mind and
