Is this trek for you?
Nepal are relatively easy, following well-paved paths and local village trails
throughout. The maximum altitude reached on the trip is less than 5380 meters.
By Himalayan standards this is fairly modest elevation and the altitude issues
experienced on higher elevation trek should not be of concern to us on this
trek. However, it should be noted that trekking at altitudes above 3000 meters
requires greater demands on the body than walking at lower elevations, and is
itself challenging even for fit hikers. Our itinerary is well staged and provides
for a very gradual approach to the higher elevations encountered in the Makalu
region. Camping is not required on this trip and we stay each night in
well-appointed lodges with basic facilities. The trekking element of this trip
is not long or sustained, however you will need to ensure you are physically
prepared for the trek and you should be comfortable with walking for 5 to 7
hours each day. This trekking holiday should be well within the capabilities of
all active hikers and hill-walkers.
