Trekking in Nepal usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 4 to 6 hours from 9 to 14 km per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasions pack animals.

It’s not unusual to cross snowfields in the morning and bathe in sub-tropical streams in the afternoon. For the most part, trekking routes are well traveled by local people, but remain unmarked without signposts.
