Karma Trek is trekking region and mostly we spend our night at Guesthouse. In Guesthouse, you can get pasta, noodles, bread, soup etc. Dal Bhat (Rice, Lentils and Vegetables) are great way to gain energy for the strenuous trek. As you trek higher it’s better to avoid meat because non-vegetarian is heavy meals which may cause food poisoning so we avoid it.
There are plenty of water stations on each stop on the route. You can easily fill up the bottle from the open taps. We recommend that you bring water purifier tablets with you or at least get it from Kathmandu before you depart for trekking. You can also buy mineral waters but we usually recommend tap water which is pure and it helps us not promoting plastic bottled water.
We use private car for sightseeing inside the Kathmandu Valley and to drive towards Sotikhola we will use jeep. We also drop and pick up from the starting and ending point of trek on private car or Jeep depending on the number of travellers.
Spring season (March to June) and Autumn season (September to December) are the best time to do this trek. In winter, it is difficult to trek in snow and harsh cold.
Before coming to Nepal, make sure that you are covered by insurance policy for the altitude of 5500 meters.

Weather at high altitude is unpredictable so carry a light weight waterproof jacket along with thick down jacket, pant and thermal inner wear to escape severe cold. Needless to say the good shoe is very important for trekking in rough and snowy terrain. So invest on good quality shoes or rent it from us in a minimum price. As you are trekking in remote village, try to wear modest clothes to quickly gel up with the local people without hesitation.

In some villages, you can make local and international calls from telephone provided by the guesthouse owner after paying the price directly. Our guide also provided with a mobile phone in case of emergency you can call from his mobile and make a call.
If you need extra day to complete the trekking, you'll need to inform the guide in advance and the guide will let the company know. Adding a day to trekking can result in many changes in other arrangements such as transportation, guide’s schedule, flight details, hotel bookings and all, so we really don't recommend this to our clients unless there is an emergency cases.

Before coming to Nepal, make sure you are covered for diphtheria & TB, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, malaria, typhoid, polio and tetanus. Make sure you are in best shape to complete the trekking without any complication.
Usually, we have to walk about 7-9 hours a day. But it should not be taken as certain thing because the hours of walk depends on client’s speed. So it is really relative.
