Trip Overview

Located in one of the remote villages of Nepal, Rara Lake resides peacefully in Mugu district.

Mugu was once a part of the ancient Malla kingdom of the Karnali River basin now it is a place with a fascinating blend of Buddhist and Hinduism as well as Shamanism and the ancient Bonpo religion. This area is also famous for the unique herbs (Yarshagumba) which has many medical properties.

Jumla on the other hand is hidden away in the shadows of Sisne Himal. It is believed to be the place where the Nepali language was originated from the “sinja” of Jumla. Residing on the banks of Tila River it is one of the place where the unique red rice is grown and is loved for its special taste. Jumla is also very famous for the apples and different apple chips, brandy and pickles.

Essential Info

Essential Info

Tourism is the main source of income for the guides, porters, and hotel owners in Nepal, so we believe that the Himalayas should be protected not only for this generation but also for the future generation. Every trek that TMG runs focuses on taking care of the ecological aspects and works with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP).

Yes, it does, and the rescue is done through helicopter, and the cost of the rescue operation is likely to be from USD 2500 to 3000 USD per person. If there is a group rescue operation, then the cost is likely to be USD 500 per person.

  • Insect repellent.
  • Antiseptic cream.
  • Anti-diarrhoeal drug
  • Antibiotics
  • Paracetamol
  • Skin cream for blisters.
  • Diamox
  • Multi-vitamin 
  • Iodine
  • Cotton
  • Tape
  • Dettol

Yes, the trek runs. We do not charge any extra money for a solo trekker.

It is a sickness caused due to the lack of oxygen at a higher altitude in the mountainous region, and one of the ways to overcome it is to drink plenty of water. The other is descending to a lower altitude, and the medicine you can take to fight against it is Diamox (acetazolamide).

Most of the time, we have the first time trekkers, and they are doing good. So, you do not need to have any experience to do a trek, but we do recommend you jogging, swimming, and walking before coming to Nepal for it. Previous experience will be a plus point.

You must be 100% physically fit, that means, you should not have acute health problem nor chronic health problem.

In Nepal, many people still use cash; this does mean there is no ATM. You will find ATM in the main cities of Nepal, including Kathmandu and Pokhara. We would like to recommend you to exchange USD into Nepali currency before trekking.

Yes, you can at a small fee, especially when you acclimatize.

Tea houses might charge you from USD3 to USD 10 for Wi-Fi, and another option is to get a Nepal Telecom SIM card or Ncell SIM Card. You can also use your guide’s mobile for an international if you reimburse him.

C or D type outlet (adapter). Ask your guide, you can buy an adapter at a cheap price in Kathmandu.

Yes, you can charge, and you have to pay $1 to $4 an hour for charging.

If it is urgent, then you should find some privacy on the trail and pee.

We would like to recommend this diet rather than meat because in the mountainous regions there are no fridges to store meat.

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Typhoid
  • Malaria
  • Rabies

If you are seriously affected by altitude mountain sickness, then you will be flown to Kathmandu for treatment.

There is no such age limit because we have had families who trekked with us with their kids like 9 years old as well as senior people aged 70.

Nepal is the safest trekking destination in the world because you will be with a trekking guide and a porter. Lodges are safe, and our guide always gives paramount importance to your safety.

There will be other people in the group, but we do not tell you about their personal information, but of course, we can say the number of people in the group.

Only if you are doing a private tour (private trek), you can add extra days. If you are trekking in a group, then this is not possible. Because on a private tour, you have chosen your date, and you can trek in the way you have decided, we mean to say, there will be you or your family or friends, no outsiders.

No, because we have to pay for the hotel, transportation company, guide, government, and porter. For some trips, we have to book air tickets. We have to book all of these in advance. That is the reason, why we do not refund.

The trip price we have mentioned is inclusive and includes transportation, accommodation, meals during the trek, and government taxes, including guide service and porter. For personal expenses, the money you should bring is USD 500, and you have to exchange it into Nepali currency in Kathmandu before trekking.

  • First step in the Everest Base Camp

    I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit the Buddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.

  • Annapurna Circuit Trek

    Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of trip and the company were excellent and of the right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

  • Everest Trekking in Nepal

    Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.

Mountain Flight

Mountain Flight

US$ 250per person
Duration: 1 Day

A mountain flight is beyond one’s imagination because you’ve never seen anything like it before. Only a bird gets to see this glorious view and you’re up close within minutes of being airborne. Enjoy a close look at some of the world’s highest peaks including Mt. Everest and go home with incredible pictures because everyone gets a window seat!
Taking a mountain flight is the easiest thing to do. Buy a ticket and you’re taken on an hour-long flight that flies higher than some of the Himalayan peaks, looking down on glaciers and high altitude lakes. Nepal has eight of the highest mountains in the world and the only way to see them all is by flying past them. Even mountaineers don’t get to see them up close all in a day. The hostess identifies the individual peaks and the pilot invites each passenger to the cockpit to take pictures of Everest from their large windscreen.

In the west is seen the mighty peaks of the Dhaulagiri massif and the Annapurna range while far in the east lies Everest, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. The horizon seems like an endless jagged row of high snowy peaks stretching far into the distance. The rows and rows of mountain peaks are beyond one’s imagination and simply unbelievable.
Leaving Kathmandu domestic airport early in the morning before the clouds form, passengers take an hour’s flight around the Everest region with stunning views of all the major peaks. Maps are available on the mountain ranges so one can identify the various important peaks. The hostesses are there if you have questions. Should the weather not be suitable you will be either offered a refund or the option to fly again.

For visitors based in Pokhara, there are other options available such as taking a microlight flight towards the Annapurna Massif with spectacular views of the Annapurna range and Machhapuchhre among them. A microlight is a two-seater small aircraft with a powered engine designed to carry no more than two people, the pilot, and the passenger.
For visitors who like to take a mountain flight to the extreme, there are options to charter helicopters and fly to the Everest range, taking a short tour around the Everest valleys before landing for breakfast and then returning to Kathmandu.

If you are someone with a higher adventure threshold, then you might also want to experience hang-gliding, paragliding, paramotor flying, sky diving or even participate in relevant training courses. Enjoy the spectacular views!
