FAQs

Typically our trekking holidays involve 4 -8 hours hiking per day, including a lunch stop. The trail varies from easy hiking on the lower elevation to the strenuous walking over 5000 meter in Himalayas. A common misconception is that if you are a slow walker you may hold people back - NOT SO. The group members often string out and there will be an hour or two between the first to arrive and the last. You walk at your own pace and stop when you fell like it. There will be always our trekking Sherpa, guides and porters at the front and the rear ensuring no one get lost.

Trekking Days are designed so that the walking is enjoyable and safe. The companionship of other trekkers and staff positive attitude creates great company and many memorable events. The day begins early at around 6.30 in morning with a cup of tea. Before breakfast, pack your gears into duffle bag by keeping some essential things in your daypack.

About 1 - 2 hours lunch break that allows for the group meal, enjoy the surroundings, and catch up on your diary or reading. We reach our camp or teahouse by 4 pm as the afternoon walk is generally shorter than the morning. Having afternoon tea, side trips, games or other activities (optional) are generally organized. You can opt to relax, read, write diary, explore the surrounding area and villages or sit and chat with staff and local people or fellow trekkers. Dinner is normally served around 7.00 p m.

Fitness is perhaps the key factor in the trek. Most people of average fitness for their age could complete the adventure trekking in Himalayas. On all holidays, physical preparation is useful and a flexible, open-minded approach is essential. You can take your time, set your own pace and enjoy the most fascinating surroundings. Most first-time trekkers are concerned that they won't keep up. They soon discover that a steady and moderate pace will have them in destination well before they would have expected. Trekking is not walking competition, but walking holidays in own pace. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it, and you will have enough energy for extra activities. The best preparation for trekking is cycling, swimming, jogging, squash, tennis and long walks involving up and down hill.

It is notoriously difficult to predict the weather condition in Himalayas. Off course days are warm and nights are cold. There can be a snow or rain storms at any time. Between 1000 and 3500 meter the temperature could be as high as 20 deg C to 5 deg C low. At higher altitude, the temperature ranges from 20 deg C to -10 deg C. During winter it is around 10 deg colder. Good polarizing sunglasses (not trendy fashion one) for high altitude and large brimmed hat are really helpful. Expect the unexpected.

Tipping is an accepted part of trekking although it is completely personal matter. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Budgeting up to 10 % of the trek cost as tipping could be a guideline.

 Essentially, our trekking peaks allow you to climb to your chosen summit and back in a day from each Base / High Camp. The routes we use are chosen for their objective safety and sometimes involve easy angled snow slopes, straightforward ridges and occasionally minor scrambling. You will be using crampons, an ice axe, harness zommer etc; fixed ropes will be used ascending and descending.
Step by Step treks organize Special climbing clinic Course at base camp to give a required climbing skills to summit the top safely and successfully. Trekking Peaks are carefully designed to deliver interesting treks and provide proper acclimatization. These treks are open to fit, determined walkers who have previously undertaken 'strenuous' treks; previous mountaineering experience is an advantage but not essential.
