For most treks, you do not need to be a super athlete or a mountaineer. But a few weeks of training or some hiking must do before arriving in Nepal. It won’t be terribly enjoyable if you have to spend the trip of a lifetime struggling to walk the trails every day. Your preparation for the Trek would have made the trails so much more worthwhile.
It is important to be in good physical fitness and mentally well prepared before beginning your trek. If you try to spend an hour a day hiking or walking upstairs rather than taking the lift, it helps for your upcoming trip. It will be best to walk or cycle when you would normally drive or ride a bus. Running a few miles every day is probably the best physical activity to prepare for the Nepal trip. While the training period, you may also be breaking in those new trekking boots which would otherwise give you blisters on the first day on the trail.
If you can learn some Nepali languages will be a great support during your trip. Try to study Nepali culture, customs, and religious faith before coming to Nepal. It wouldn’t hurt to try to find out as much as possible about Nepal’s customs especially about the particular trek that you have planned before arriving. With this sort of background knowledge, you will be able to get much more out of your visit. We are always happy to provide you with information with updated facts.
