Fitness

Helambu Circuit Trek

TRAIN AND FITNESS 

Physical fitness is one of the most key elements on the trek. The trekking in the Himalayan is not forced on it and pacing is always slow, most of the days generally being shorter than a hiking day at your home country. We believe that should be you’re imaginable of its kind of holiday trip literally than a contest to provide evidence of the travelers. We maintain situated so as to allow easy access to your trip can be demanding but not a difficult. You can make your own speed and enjoy your trip stunning atmosphere rather than following to other to catch. Himalayan Trails, recommend that you assume on a good fitness agenda proceeding to your trip although and one that builds up general strength and specific leg muscle groups. There is nothing like hiking with a bag pack to train for trek in Himalaya. So our best advice is to get out into the Hills or Alps as often as you can. You better ware your hiking boots and carry about 5-6 kg in your day bag-pack; this is a good weight to walk with it.

If you are doing Gym then which can be helpful and work on the thigh and calf muscles but better to build your heart rate over 50%. Any kind of heart breed activities are good but swimming will not add it doesn’t train right muscles groups better added other exercise to be effective. Hiking in Hills, Alps would be the best preparation for a trek in Nepal.

EXPERIENCE FOR THE NEPAL TREK

The trekking trail and area of Nepal mostly well trodden and natural path most of the regions, even though it can be rocky and rough in some parts. It is not precipitous and there is no rock climbing or Mountaineering which is requiring equipments. It is hike most of the way in Himalaya, but some parts of the hills can be steep up and down and can be longer!

On the way you may meet many people along the trails as well as Donkeys, Yaks and heavy load porters. Walking in the Himalaya there is rule of the way when meet an approaching Donkeys, Yaks and porters always make sure you step to always on side where wide enough to passes through each other,( towards slopes side of the hill or inside of the Trail). Note: never ever stand ridged sides of the trail. If you stand, it means, we call (outside standing is suicide and inside is safe site) because it can be push by them down to mountains or rivers.

The trekking poles are very useful, if you have problems with knees, depending on weather or personal choice for using them. Even though higher up, ice path, moraine, open slopes may give you extra support from it, also quite easy to follow the path.
Always final sections are can be Glacier itself and high elevation, it is bit difficult and occasionally slippery under trails. The ice is covered in water stones and dirt, so where a coolant produces cold temperatures in the surface below.

Comfortable, good sole, ankle support (4 seasons) trekking boots water proof are recommended for the high passes trek but for the lower trek light weight hiking boots are fine to protect you beside, probably going over an ankle, low altitude trek heavy boots will be hot and unwieldy.

ACCOMMODATION ON THE TREK

Tea house trek accommodation will be in comfortable tea houses and lodges run most of the area by local families, except people specify a preference for tents. Every tea house or lodge has a common heated Chimney in the dining hall, although the bedrooms are not heated with mattresses, pillows and two beds in a room. We recommend you to bring your own sleeping bag (3 seasons in normally fine) but possibility is also you can buy and hire in Kathmandu.

Generally most of the tea houses have hot showers by gas gizzards and they have squire toilets but some area have and use drop toilets with flush systems.

For the Camping/ Tent trekking we use branded company tents which are for two persons comfortably can sleep and can put your luggage on side, and we provide you the mattresses. Tents are fixed always near the guest house and eating in our own dining tent, sometimes eating can be indoors, depends on possibility. So toilets sometimes you will use from the lodge but obvious we will have our privet toilet tents too.

Himalayan Trails support 

Our main back bones of the trek are porters, will carry your main duffle bag up to a maximum weight of 12-14 kg per guest and supply for all the groups needs, if you need to go back down to the valley together with assisting you. Apart from specially camping, all the accommodations are in local lodge or Tea houses which are well prepared, warm and friendly environment.

Our entire trip we run by permanently Guides or Leaders, who have been employed over ten years with us and been training personally high standard leadership and first aid by our company. They know how to deal with emergencies and speak fluently English. They are always helpful and look after you so many years have been working with tourist and westerns, they know the westerns needs and understanding. Our porters are always who works with us forever all our teams are dedicated and they will provide high standards services.
