Sherpa Expedition & Trekking Pvt. Ltd information about Himalayas of  Nepal Everest Region Trekking.

Doing treks in Himalayas of Nepal is the distinct culture and environment. Trekkers need to consider on following do’s and don’ts.

Do’s

  • Do smile and greet the local people by saying “Namaste” and “Tashidelek” to show respect.
  • Do walk in a group or keep a distance that you could see your front and behind fellow.
  • Do consult with your trekking guide before trying anything new during the trek.
  • Do ask a question to the guide for the next day trekking necessity, so that you could pack in your small backpack because rest baggage will carry by a porter and will get only in the evening.
  • Do give a donation to the monastery in the trekking area where they don’t collect tickets from the visitors but there is a donation box.
  • Do inform your trekking guide if you are not comfortable with your health while approaching higher altitude.

Don’t

  • Don’t underestimate the local culture and belief even if you find uncomfortable with it.
  • Don’t take a picture of the people without their permission during the trek because some individual doesn’t like that.
  • Don’t be strange if local people stare at you because they are surprised to see you, not with a bad intention.
  • Don’t expect too many facilities in the trekking areas, most places provide you only the basic facilities.
  • Don’t harm wild animals, birds, and plants during the trek and take a global responsibility to save the environment.
  • Don’t give money to the children and the beggars; it encourages them to beg from the visitors.
