If you have been browsing Nepal packages for the best Everest Base Camp trek itinerary, then you should choose from the two significant trekking seasons. The pre-monsoon months of February, March, April and May and the post-monsoon months between late September and December are ideal for a trek to the Everest Base Camp and scaling Kala Phattar. Avoid the harsher months of January and February when the Himalayan winter is at its peak with the temperature plummeting to -30 degree Celsius making it extremely challenging to find your way through the snow-covered trail.
While the official language of Nepal is Nepali which has its roots in Sanskrit, most people in the city including your lodging staff, shopkeepers and cafe owners can converse in English. However, if you are travelling remotely into the mountains and staying in small villages, you will encounter an array of tongues which are various sub-dialects, but there is little chance that you can get around in English. When looking for Nepal tour packages, ensure you have an English-speaking guide in tow.
Simply go through Nepal travel packages and zero in on the suitable one because Nepal is a safe and tourist-friendly country for both backpackers and those travelling with their families. A country with a low crime rate, you can easily wander around Nepal, trek its mountains and explore its medieval city, Bhaktapur, and Old Kathmandu and Thamel among other places even if you are a solo traveller. But keep a radar for a travel advisory if any on restrictions to travel to certain areas. Nepal has made a speedy recovery since the earthquake of 2015 and a majority of its trekking circuits are open again to mountaineers and trekkers. But be wary of pickpockets and it’s better to take a local guide with you when you are going into the mountains or are travelling to remote regions.
Though this would largely depend on the season in which you are travelling, Nepal in general is a cold country because it is the land of the Himalayas, and other than that a rather conservative society. You are advised to not pack anything too revealing, skimpy or short. For all the walks and hikes your Nepal trip will entail, a suitcase should have light to medium-weight comfortable cotton clothes, a jacket, a woollen cap, sweaters, walking shoes and woollen socks. Warm clothing is particularly necessary if you are visiting between October and February. Keep a scarf, a bandana or a woollen cap handy for gaining entry to religious shrines.
