Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) has been implemented
jointly by Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and Trekking Agencies’ Association
of Nepal (TAAN) to ensure safety and security of trekkers and to control
illegal trekking operations. TIMS cards should be collected by both
Free Individual Trekkers (FITs) and trekkers taking the service of
government authorized trekking agencies.
Past experiences have revealed that difficulties were seen while
carrying out rescue operations during times of accidents and natural
calamities. Due to the lack of proper record system of trekkers, rescue
and search missions used to face difficulties in spotting the missing
trekkers. Based on the data collected through TIMS cards, however, it
will be possible to know the position of a trekker in case a
rescue operation is needed. As per the recent MoU signed by NTB and
TAAN, TIMS card is applicable in all trekking areas of the country
including restricted areas. Group trekkers will have to pay Blue TIMS
cards by paying a fee of Rs 1,000 per person, while FITs have to get
Green TIMS cards by paying a fee of Rs 2,000. Similarly, group trekkers
from SAARC countries have to pay Rs 300 for TIMS cards, while FITs from
the SAARC region have to pay Rs 600 each.

Trekking is the most sought after adventurous activity in Nepal
due to which it attracts thousands of foreign tourists all year around
to its grandeur landscapes of Himalayan terrains. Having a great
combination of natural and cultural diversity, Nepal offers incredible
trekking destinations which bewilder the minds and eyes of its visitors.
Beyond doubt, these things make Nepal a perfect place for trekkers to
come and explore it’s exotic trekking routes.
After having said that, Nepal is a country where trekking can be done
throughout the year but nevertheless there are some best seasons in
which trekking in Nepal becomes extraordinarily good. To continue,
Spring and Autumn seasons are considered as the best trekking season in
all over Nepal. Presently the weather and climatic conditions of these
seasons make them the finest time of the year when trekkers can enjoy
the scenic Himalayan panorama and walk amongst beautiful trek routes
without any disturbances along their way. The seasonal month of Spring
begins from March to end of May and during these months the weather
starts to warm up with a little bit of rainfall here and there.
Additionally, the rhododendron forests start blossoming up to charm
their visitors with unique blend of mesmerizing natural colors. Next
will be the Autumn season which is also considered by many as the most
favorable trekking season of Nepal. Mainly because the temperature
remains moderate which allows trekking in higher altitudes easy with
crystal clear open skies without much clouds to block the views of the
snow-capped mountains. The trek routes normally tend to get over crowded
and teahouses get every room booked for trekkers walking along their
trail. During the autumn months of mid-September, October and November
valleys remain lush with thriving vegetation and wildlife which can add
to the exquisiteness to one’s travel in Nepal.
Excluding Spring and Autumn seasons we still have Summer/Monsoon
(June-August) and Winter (December-February) seasons which are not
generally preferred by trekkers so the trek routes have less number of
tourists traveling through them. However, if you are the one that likes
walking on a trail with less tourists jampacking their way alongside you
then you may try going for trek in these seasonal months too. But be
wary that it gets below zero up in the Himalayan regions where normally
you would want to trek to and so you have to prepare your body to
survive in these kinds of high altitude winter climates. Just like that
in the Monsoon months, the trail tends to become muddy, slippery and
most importantly covered with leaches, so if these things don’t bother
you then just book a trip to Nepal as trekking companies always welcomes
tourists who are willing to visit it even during the off seasons.
To conclude, we would just like to say that if you’re planning to
trek in Nepal then you have various options at our disposal to help you
get the most of our trekking packages. Contact us today and go on a
never forgetting trip in Nepal with our expert trekking team.
If you are a traveler who loves wandering into different nations
without prior knowledge about the designated travel routes, then you
have to stop yourself for a while and think about Travel Insurance first
of all. We understand that traveling is fun and it can be a joyous
moment for each and every person who prefers traveling abroad for that
exotic feeling of getting close with nature personally. But, you also
have to understand that without a proper dependable Travel Insurance you
may get into a lot of trouble which you initially didn’t want to get
Trekking requires you to have a good physical and health condition
but even if you have a required amount of physical capabilities, you
still can get into some troublesome situations which may not be thought
of by you during your travel. Trekkers and travelers who decide in
trekking at higher altitudes are requested to purchase a highly reliable
travel insurance which covers high altitude trekking with emergency
helicopter evacuation if you’re planning to visits places like Everest
Base Camp. As the treks which tend to go above 4,000 meters are
considered to be more challenging and requires trekkers to have a keen
sense of judgement to walk through the bewildering mountain terrains of
Nepal. In short, trekking at high altitudes, between 2,000 and 6,000
meters will eventually become an exhilarating experience with some
possibility to sustain injuries, therefore it is of great need that
trekkers should get covered by a Travel Insurance prior to coming to
With problems ranging from High Altitude Pulmonary Edema, Nausea,
Hypothermia, Exhaustion, Headaches, Sun burn, Frost bite, Shortness of
breath, Increased heartbeat and other accidental injuries which can
happen to anyone, it is very important to get yourself a proper Travel
Insurance. Many factors can degrade the physical performance of trekkers
so it is quite impossible to predict when you might succumb to the high
elevation environment. Not just that, but if you carry some kind of
expensive/valuable belongings which you don’t want to get damaged then
having a Travel Insurance can cover their losses too if they get stolen
or damaged during your travelling period.
So, in a general perspective, having a “Travel Insurance” can help
you if any bad things happen to you and during accidents when your life
is in danger. Thus, we recommend that you get yourself a dependable
Travel Insurance to ensure your safety during your visit in Nepal.
Situated between China to the north and India to the east, west
and south, Nepal is a small landlocked country covering an estimated
land area of 147,181 sq.km. Since the past decades, Nepal has been
collectively known as one of the best travel destination in South East
Asia for many travelers and explorers, mainly due to its amazing variety
of topological climate.
To begin, the geographical coordinate of Nepal is 28 00 N and 84 00 E
which give it an influential weather conditions of maritime and
continental factors. Fundamentally, Nepal is divided into three
particular regions of Terai Region, Hilly Region and Mountain Region
from south to north direction. In the most part of Nepal, the weather
and climate of a particular place depends mostly on it attitudinal
features which in general has been divided into five climatic zones
which are: Tropical and subtropical zone, Cool and temperate zone, cold
zone, subarctic zone and arctic zone. Nepal’s latitude is nearly as
about as Florida which makes the Terai region exist in a place with
tropical and subtropical climatic zone. Nonetheless, the Hilly region
and Himalayan region differ very differently with the sudden increase in
the elevation of each of their location.
In particularity, the Kathmandu Valley with an average summer
temperature of 19°C – 35°C & winter temperature of 2°C – 12°C,
consists a pleasing climatic condition which makes it a perfect place
for arrival of all the International Flights. Beginning from March to
May, the spring season is warm with time to time rain showers and the
temperatures tend to be around 22°C. Next is summer season which lasts
from June to August and also is the monsoon season during which heavy
amounts of rainfall occurs throughout due to which vegetation flourish
extravagantly all over the nation. This time period of the year is
mostly unfavorable for trekking in general but some places like Upper
Mustang and Dolpa regions can be trekked without any heavy rainfalls
obscuring the trails. Now comes the most liked Autumn season which
starts from September to November, during which temperature is not too
warm nor too cold, making it a perfect time for trekking in Nepal. The
daily average temperature lies between 25°C and 10°C. Now comes the
snowy Winter season which begins from December to end of February.
Snowfalls are common in the higher elevations with temperature going
below zero but the lower regions of Terai can have a maximum temperature
of 20°C during the day.
Seasonal months according to Nepalese calendar:
Trekking in Nepal is a very pleasurable form of activity which
allows trekkers to travel in beautiful valleys with incredible views of
snow-capped mountains while learning about the cultural diversity of
ethnic communities living alongside their trek routes. However, trekkers
need to remain wary about their health condition and safety during
their entire trek as accidents can happen anytime without any prior
warnings. So, you must consider about Health Problems which you may have
If you have a fit physical condition with a hunger for adventure then
Nepal has a lot of various trekking destinations which can be a
challenging experience for them. Consider carrying a basic first-aid-kit
which can be bought at low price anywhere in a medical shop as a first
step to prioritizing your health and safety. But it won’t save you if
you have any kind of internal injuries so be very wary about where you
trek. Along with that, do consider purchasing some medicines to help you
fight your illness if it were to happen. Make sure to carry a variety
of clothing’s for diverse weather conditions, drink enough amount of
pure drinking water, use hand sanitizer when possible to disinfect your
hands prior to eating your food and if you want to prevent sun burns
then do carry a sunscreen and a hat with you. Look, these are basic
things which should be taken into notice by trekkers themselves but if
they become careless then it might hamper their health in the long run.
So, it’s better to be prepared than to be sorry later.
Additionally, trekkers who are planning to trek in high altitudes
above the range of 3,000 meters above sea level then they are requested
to learn about High Altitude Sickness which can be a major factor to
determine the end result of their entire trek. Some other things to keep
in mind is that one should always trek with a local expert trekking
guide with years of experience to help you overcome several hurdles and
navigate your trail till the end. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
during your trip as they can degrade your health and make you less fit
for your travel the next day.
Some medical accessories to carry with you:
Take your time to prepare yourself both physically & mentally and
when you’re ready come visit Nepal as things are bound to run smoothly
when you’re prepared better for your trip.
or just simply visiting Nepal can be a very life-changing experience

the end of your travel period. Likewise, learn about the permits and

The term hypoxia is a medical condition where the cells of our
organs do not receive adequate amount of oxygen due to the insufficient
concentration of oxygen molecules in the blood. The lack of oxygen can
in the blood, in time can cause severe long term effect to the human
body which include a permanent damage to the brain and other vital
organs. Each and every tissue in the human body needs to proportionally
receive oxygen always in order to function and perform the important
biological processes to keep a human alive.
If you’re blood doesn’t carry enough oxygen & nutrients to your
body parts then it will later on be the main cause of Hypoxia which can
be lethal for one’s survival. Therefore, I am about to discuss the
causes, symptoms and preventive measures so that you can learn about
Hypoxia in depth.
Although, the symptoms for Hypoxia can differ from person to person, I
have listed down the most occurred common symptoms of Hypoxia below:
Hypoxia or Hypoxemia, these are very dangerous conditions as it means
your body is not getting required dose of oxygen through your blood. It
is to keep in mind that without oxygen, your brain, liver &other
organs can be damaged just minutes after symptoms start. Some common
causes of it are as below:
How to prevent Hypoxia?
When the oxygen levels in the blood start getting under 90 percent, a
person will certainly get affected by Hypoxia. In that case, the
individually affected person needs to receive immediate medical
attention. It is vital that the level of oxygen circulating from the
blood to the cells and tissues of the body reach a normal level, as if
the oxygen level remain low, the individual person may even die. So, it
is highly recommended that you should always monitor your certain health
Make appointments with a doctor and check if your blood pressure is
too low.If you’re asthmatic then I hope I don’t have to say that you
should keep your inhaler nearby at all times. Additionally, avoid
trekking in high altitudes if you think you might succumb to the
environment of high altitudes.Lastly, as the Hypoxia gets worse trekkers
need to receive immediate medical attention because they require high
amount of medical supervision from that point onward in order to remain
