Even the High altitude lodges get opened and get occupied with the mountain lovers.

Summer (June, July, and August):
This is also the monsoon season in Nepal. At this time, the weather is hot and wet at times. It rains almost every day with occasional thunderstorms in the evening. The rain spreads the pleasantness around with lush green vegetation. If you are planning to trek in this season, we suggest to choose rain shaded areas of Nepal. Even, if you do not mind rain, and wants to trek in this season, you should compulsorily bring umbrella, pancho, proper waterproof hiking boots, wind proof jackets, baggage wrap, and raincoat as well as required insect repellent. Likewise, the reward of this month is the view of lush green valley captured by small flowers. It is a wonderful time to observe monsoon cycle of agriculture and the traditional life of Nepalese people.

Autumn (September, October and November):
This time is considered to be the best tourist season in Nepal with the end of summer and the winter to set in. The weather is highly pleasant so are the mountain views.

EBC Trek

My experience with Hiking Nepal, and specifically Nittam was phenomenal. As a woman travelling alone, I was determined to find a trustworthy company and guide. Nittam suggested me a guide Tej who was great. His attention to my needs was outstanding. We created a short trekking route for Everest Base Camp Trek. Every tea house we stayed in along the way was fantastic, the food was great, and the hike was absolutely breathtaking. On conversation with other trekkers along the way, I was happy that I booked the trip in a very reasonable price. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company for planning any trekking/hiking/excursions. Wish you all the best and thank you for wonderful trek.

EBC trek - outstanding!

Decided to do something 'epic' with my daughter for my 50th - perfect choice! Nittam responded fully and quickly to all questions prior to the trip - very professional. On arrival in Nepal, we were completely looked after - met at airport, lovely quiet hotel near the busy Thamel central area, down jacket and sleeping bag arranged, flights to Lukla. Khem (our guide) and Dhurba (our porter) were amazing. Each evening we had a prep meeting for the next day. They made sure food and accommodation en route were on point and we enjoyed playing cards and sharing time with them. Fabulous guys - we couldn't have done it without them. The team had even arranged a birthday cake for me to cut at EBC (we arrived there on my birthday) which we shared with an expedition team and Sherpas in Camp. Any problems which arose were dealt with quickly and efficiently. Totally professional and highly recommended 10/10

EBC TREK

I had been looking at trekking companies since February and never committing due to being uncertain which company to go with due to the mass amount of options. Hiking Nepal caught my eye with the wide variety of options across multiple countries and were very quick to respond daily on multiple occasions with any enquiries then I had. I only booked 10 days prior to my departure and was very impressed with Hiking Nepal swift confirmation and information provided to ensure I could prep for this trip accordingly. Upon arrival to Kathmandu; I was greeted by Ms. Nittam and help to check in at hotel. She introduce me with my trekking Guide Mr. Lok, who was a big reason why our trip was so memorable. He was well experienced, organized, and attentive and had two great porters with him whom reside in the same village with him. It felt like trekking with my Nepalese family instead of a pre-booked tour excursion. Itinerary wise, I loved doing a "circuit" over a trek back and forth on the same route, so this itinerary and suggested travel route is highly recommended!! I could not have asked for better service from prior to arriving Nepal to my 3 weeks in this beautiful country to the sendoff and follow up since to ensure I had arrived safely and so forth. I will ensure to book again and have my eye on several treks listed with this company! All the best Hiking Nepal and thank you for one of the highlights of my life.
