Traditional tamang heritage trekking is famous for natural hot spring, fine view of Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung as well as Tamang Tibetan culture. This is newly open excellent trekking trail, either its own or its conjunction with Langtang valley trekking. Less trekkers and less commercial place is attraction of this trek. But it is not easy trek, there are plenty of ups and downs, but days are generally quite short. If you prefer cultural and religious interaction over big mountain this might be best for you. The trail was originally set up as a community based tourism project to give local access to income from tourism. While there are now private lodge along the trail as well as several home stay. Nepali well professional and licensed holder guide is particularly useful, finding the easy route and arrange the best home stay in a village. Gatlang village is the main attraction of this trip. Its possible to shorten the itinerary. Tatopani (natural hot spring) is the another attraction of this trip, even a lot of local people also go there for holy bath. If you have more time you can extend your trip to Rasuwa Gadi (a Nepal Tibet border) and Langtang valley trek.

Primarily the trekking season in Nepal is categorized under different four seasons as Autums (September to November), Winter (December to February), Spring (March to May) and  Summer (June to August). Autums and Spring are the perfect time of the year for the breath taking views of King-Kong Himalayas and  trekking around the world’s most dramatic landscape. Most popular trekking in Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Mustang, Manaslu and many other trekking destinations including off-the beaten trails are woth visiting during Autums and Spring season. Besides this, Nepal has some rain shadow area where the monsoon is lighter. These areas are visit worthy during the Summer season (June, July & August). Upper Mustang and  Upper Dolpo are the worth visiting places during these months. Besides this some short and few days trekking in Nepal can be done throughout the year as well.

Weather in the mountains is hard to predict.  Days are generally warm if the sun is out and night is a bit cooler. Even there is snow in the months of December January & February but days are warm and beautiful if sun comes out in the sky. Always expect the unexpected weather in the mountains. The temperature could be as high as 20 deg C to -10 deg C low in the mountains. Nepal is the country of extremes. The low-land plains of the Terai can have tropical temperatures and also the mosquitoes. The Himalayas can get to sub-zero temperatures, but the sun blaze can bring some warmth during the day, even in the mountains. The temperature of Kathmandu goes below 1 Degree Celsius (34 Degree Fahrenheit) in winter and rises to an average of 25 Degree Celsius (77 Degree Fahrenheit) in summer.

Autumn (Sept – Nov):- Autumn season is considered as the best time for trekking in Nepal, which offers excellent weather and tantalizing mountain views. Moderate temperatures, clear sky with outstanding views, making it a great time to do any of our trek. Occasional short storms may dump snow at high altitudes. The average temperature during the this period is 15 degrees C with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C during sunny days and a minimum of -10 degrees C in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

Winter (Dec – Feb):- This season is noted for occasional snowfall at higher elevations in Himalayas. Though it gets colder in night, often it offers the clear day / blue sky and relatively less trekkers on the trail. However, we need to be selective in choosing the winter trekking as climbing and crossing high passes trip won’t be an ideal option. Trek like Everest base camp, Annapurna view trekking, Everest View Trekking, Poon Hill trekking, Langtang Valley trekking etc can be done even in winter. The average temperature during the winter is 15 degrees C with a maximum temp of 20 degrees C during sunny days and a minimum of -10 degrees C in the morning and at night, for areas above 4000 meters altitude.

Spring (March – May):- Different varieties of wild flowers, specially the rhododendrons make the hillside a haunting paradise during this spring season. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevation the mountain views are excellent and temperature is quite moderate. During springtime, the average temperature is 17 degrees C with a maximum of 25 degrees C during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

Summer/Rain (Jun-Aug):- Summer time from June till mid September makes travel wet and warm. These times are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. Trekking in the rain-shadow areas north of the Himalaya like Upper Mustang and Dolpo could be an ideal trek selection in this season. The maximum temperature during the monsoon/summer season averages 25 degrees C during sunny days with a minimum -15 degrees C in the morning and night at areas above 4000 meters. The average temperature tends to hover around a comfortable 18 degrees C.

We provide the professional, well experienced and government license holder English speaking trekking guides for  all our trekking trip.

All guides will be Nepali people who are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal skill. They are all trained, certified and approved by the Nepal government. 

Most of the places in your tea houses in Everest, Annapurna, Mustang, Langtang region have charging facilities. You can charge your devices by paying some extra money. Its good if you brings TWO or THREE pin travel adapter. Some trekking trails such as Manaslu, Dolpo, Damodar Kunda, Dhaulagiri has less or sometimes no  availability of charging facility. It is recommended to bring small solar panel that charges with sun light and transfer power to you gadgates  

The trip will be confirmed only when we receive your passport copy and  20% advance deposit payment. You can pay the remaining due  when you arrive in Kathmandu.

It’s very personal question as expenses depends on habit. Normally, in Kathmandu you can allocate about USD 10 to 15 per person per lunch or dinner. USD 10 to USD 15 per person per day will be sufficient to buy bottles of water, chocolates, pay for hot shower during the trekking. Other personal expenses will be your own calculation.

Being a part of society and environment, we have lots of social and environmental responsibilities. We are operating Everest Base Camp Trekking without making any harm to environment and social code and conduct.

We have decided to contribute a certain amount of our profit for the developments and maintenance of different trekking trails in Everest Region every year. We believe on “joint hands can hold the Universe” and kindly appeal all our travelers to contribute something in our social and environmental project.

We operate the group joining trips, private group trips and individual trips for all trekking destinations in Nepal. Our trip departure is guaranteed even you are solo travelers except those trekking destinations that requires special trekking permit from Nepal Government. Special trekking permit requires minimum two number of travelers such as Upper Mustang, Upper Dolpo, Manaslu Circuit, Tsum Valley and Damodar Kunda.

Almost all guesthouses/lodges in Everest and Annapurna trekking trails have telephones and internet services. They provide the WIFI service with some extra charge which helps to get updated with social Medias, friends or family. But other trekking trails like Langtang, Mustang, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and other off-the beaten trails has very less or sometimes no facility of internet and phone calls. All our guides carry the local mobile phone. You can use his mobile phone to make any local or international call from trekking trails by paying him directly. You can even pass him number to be connected with your family or friends. We highly recommend taking local SIM card for call and internet services during trekking. Local SIM cards are easily available in many stores and in airport. You need to provide two copies of your photographs and your passport copy to get local SIM CARDS of NCELL & NTC (only these two companies provide telephone services in Nepal)

Most of the guesthouse provides hot shower with some extra cost.  And in the rest of the places, bucket water will be provided for the shower. It will be less pleasant once you trek higher.

We are ready to operate your holidays as per your interest and requirements. You can spend extra days on your loving or favorable places or even can make it shorter. We will always do our best to manage your hotel bookings, flight booking and everything. 

Massif Holidays provide sleeping bags, down jackets & duffle bags for the Lodge to Lodge or Tea House Trek. We also provide the required materials like tents, mattresses, kitchen equipment during the Camping Treks. However, trekking shoes, personal equipment and climbing equipment is up to you. 

You need to have a travel-insurance policy to cover theft, loss, medical problem & emergency helicopter evacuation from high altitude places before coming Nepal. Choose a policy to cover your emergency high altitude helicopter evacuation with all medical insurances for trekking in  high altitude in the Himalayas of Nepal. So you must have travel insurance for this trekking to be secure from any extra cost of emergency medication or evacuation.

You can carry maximum 15 kg per person on every domestic flight in Nepal for free and more with some extra payment.

15kgs per person is the maximum weight limit you can provide to the porters. We always recommend settling your things in light & soft duffle bag. Please store your hard luggage at the locker of your hotel for free if you have any. It’s always easy and comfortable as light as you travel. 

Not at all!! There are many vegetarian restaurants in the cities of Nepal and the guesthouses/lodges serve the vegetarian meals. We always recommend to eat vegetarian meals to avoid the food poisoning, eating heavy meals and non- vegetarian meals at the high altitude is not really safe for the digestion.

Yes you can store all you non-trekking items at the hotel in Kathmandu for free. They will safely store your luggages. 

Our porters will carry your luggage in trekking. They will pick up it from your teahouses every morning and meet you in next destination in the evening.  

We are very flexible to design the itinerary as per your interest and requirement. You can consult with your team leader or guide to add extra days in trekking with additional fee to cover guides, porters, accommodation and food.

Yes we have insurance of all our field staff including guide and porters. 

Tipping is very personal matter. It is normally expected and the way to show the level of your satisfaction and personal involvement with your guide and porters. We have seen from few dollars to thousands dollar so it is a way to thank those people who helped to make a successful trip in the Himalayas. Normally, we recommended to spend 10% of the total amount you have spend for the trip to tip for the entire local staffs. You can ask more about it in our pre trip meeting in Kathmandu. 

No credit cards are not accepted in the guesthouses in the trekking so that we recommend to carry the enough cash in Nepali rupees.
