Our all treks (including Mt. Kailash tours) are fully catered by our qualified and experienced crew from Nepal and a professional English speaking Tibetan guide. Loads are usually carried by Yaks. A typical day begins with a hot cup of tea brought to the tent at about 6 am, followed by a bowl of hot water for washing. After packing our bags and having a good breakfast, we set off for the morning walk. All you need to carry is a small daypack containing a water bottle, camera, sun cream, hat, rain-jacket and a warm jumper, just in case. The porters or yaks will carry everything else for you. After walking for 3-4 hours we stop for lunch at around midday. The afternoon's walk is generally shorter and we arrive at camp in time for a nice cup of tea. The remainder of the afternoon can be spent exploring the nearby villages, doing a bit of washing or simply relaxing with a good book. Dinner is usually served between 6 and 7pm and after dinner, the evening is often spent playing cards or talking with the crew – and sometimes there will even be some singing and dancing before heading off to the tent for a well-earned sleep.
Our tours and treks are based on entry and exit from Kathmandu. However, you can also enter from parts of Mainland China, i.e. Beijing, Chengdu, etc. Air China flies between Kathmandu and Lhasa (Tue, Thu & Sat – started from year 2005) across the mighty Himalayas.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)
Commonly called altitude sickness, this has the potential to affect all trekkers from 2500m and higher. Your body needs days to adjust to smaller quantities of oxygen in the air - at 5500m / 18,044ft the air pressure is approximately half that of sea level, i.e. there is half the amount of oxygen (and nitrogen). This is approximately equivalent to the top of Kala Pattar, in the Everest region, and the top of the Thorung La on the Annapurna Circuit.

For treks below an altitude of about 3000m/10,000ft it is not normally a problem. AMS is caused by going up high too fast and can be fatal if all the warning signals are ignored. Note that it is not the actual altitude, but the speed at which you reach higher altitudes which causes the problems.

Altitude sickness is preventable. Go up slowly, giving your body enough time to adjust. These are the 'safe' rates for the majority of trekkers: spend 2-3 nights between 2000m / 6562ft and 3000m / 10,000ft before going higher. From 3000m sleep an average of 300m / 1000ft higher each night with a rest day every 900-1000m / 3000ft. ultimately it is up to you to recognize the symptoms, and only ascend if you are relatively symptom-free.

Normal symptoms at altitude, Don't expect to feel perfect at altitudes of more than 3000m. These are the normal altitude symptoms that you should expect but there’s nothing to worry about. Every trekker will experience some or all of these, no matter how slowly they ascend.

Sleep Disorders
The need for more sleep than normal, often 10 hours or more, can be felt by the trekker. Occasional loss of appetite, Vivid, wild dreams at around 2500-3800m in altitude, Unexpected momentary shortness of breath, day and night, Periodic breathing that wakes you occasionally - consider taking Diamox, The need to rest / catch your breath frequently while trekking, especially above 4000m. Your nose may turn into a full-time snot factory. Many trekkers also have experienced increased urination which is a good sign that your body is acclimatizing.

Mild Symptoms
You may experience one of the symptoms to be getting altitude sickness, not all of them. Headache is the most common among trekkers. Often your headache can occur during the evening and mostly worsens during the night. Raising your head and shoulders while trying to sleep sometimes offers partial relief. If it is bad you may want to try taking a painkiller: aspirin (dispirin), paracetamol, Ibuprofen (Aduil) or acetamenophen (tylenol). You are advised not to take sleeping tablets. However, you could also take Diamox. Headaches arise from many causes, for example, dehydration, but if you develop a headache it is most likely due to the altitude.

Nausea can occur without other symptoms, but often nausea will develop once you have a bad headache. If you feel better in the morning, it is advisable that you take a rest day or, if you still feel bad, you ought to descend. Mild Dizziness can occur while walking, hence you get out of the sunlight and have a rest and drink water. Stay at the closest teahouse.

Lack of appetite or generally feeling bad is occurred commonly at high altitude due to too rapid an ascent.

Painful cough or a dry raspy cough can occur. In other words, anything other than diarrhoea or a sore throat could be altitude sickness. If you have a headache from dehydration, ascending further is not dangerous, but if its due to AMS, the consequences could be very serious. You cannot tell the difference, so caution is the safest course. Do not try to deceive yourself and accept that you body needs more time to adapt.
When planning your clothing needs for a trek, think in terms of layers. Layers of clothing will keep you warm, but can be removed gradually to prevent you from overheating. During spring and autumn the night temperatures in the mountains often dip below freezing, making warm gear essential. In summer the days can be hot, requiring light cotton clothing. Good wet-weather gear is recommended during the rainy summer months. The mountainous regions of Tibet can receive snow any month of the year; be prepared for cold weather if you plan to trek at elevations above 16000 feet (4880 m). Below is a list of suggested equipment, clothing, and accessories for Tibet:

Equipment:
Footwear: hiking boots should have thick soles and be high enough to provide adequate ankle support. The newer lighweight boots are more comfortable but less durable than all-leather hiking boots. Consider gore-Tex-lined boots for treks during the rainy summer months. Optional: a pair of sneakers to wear in camp.

Packs: if you plan to backpack, use a pack with a wide, cushioned waist belt and thick shoulder straps that will comfortably support weight. On commercial treks you only need a day pack to carry your daily essentials. This pack should have padded shoulders straps, a wide waist belt, and a volume of about 1500 to 2000 cubic inches.

Duffel bag: long (36 inches or so), heavy-duty canvas or nylon bag that can be secured with a padlock. Waterproof by lining it with one or two thick plastic bags.
Sleeping bag: a three-season (spring-summer-autumn), mummy-style down or fiber-filled bag rated to about 5 to -10o C.

Inner Sheet: A silk or cotton inner sheet minimizes the need to wash our sleeping bag.

Sleeping pad: choose a full-length, self-inflating, or standard closed-cell foam pad.

Rain gear: Your raincoat should be roomy, mid-thigh in length, and have a water proof hood. Rain pants can double as wind pants. Gore-Tex, Japara, or high-quality coated nylon materials are best.

Water bottle: Take along one or two plastic or metal leak proof quart or liter bottles.

Clothing:
Thermal underwear: Bring one or two Paris of long-sleeved tops and bottoms and from wool, silk, polypropylene, or a similar synthetic fiber. Short-sleeved thermal tops are good on cool days while trekking. Avoid cotton long underwear.

Cotton underpants: Bring four or five pairs.

Socks: Have at least three pairs of wool / wool-mix socks, and several pairs of cotton socks. Hand-knit wool socks are available in Kathmandu.

Shirts: Bring a long-sleeved shirt made of wool, flannel, or chamois; a long-sleeved stay-press cotton shirt; and two or three cotton t-shirts.

Pants: Men should plan on taking one pair of loose-fitting wool or fiberpile pants and one pair of lighter-weight cotton pants. Women should bring several changes of mid-calf-length dresses or skirts, though loose-fitting pants are also acceptable. Shorts are not appropriate at any time in Tibet for mean or women.

Sweater: Choose wool or wool mix with a high neck for extra warmth.

Jacket: A fiberpile jacket is ideal for trekking and evenings in camp.

Headgear: Bring along a wool or fiberpile ski-style cap or balaclava for warmth. A lightweight brimmed hat is good for sun protection. Inexpensive broad-brimmed straw and flet hats are sold in Kathmandu’s city markets.

Scarf: Wool or silk is best, or use a fiberpile neck gaiter

Mittens or gloves: Wool, pile, or polypropylene is best

Bandanna or handkerchief: Bring several
Fully organized treks provide the best way to explore around the remote and high Himalaya. This is because we trek as a self contained unit. Carrying our food & camping equipment. We use quiet village trails that lead us through terraced rice fields (that give us the feel of paradise), magnificent forests and ideal valleys rarely found by other trekkers.

We provide trained staffs to escort your trek are friendly and humorous. English speaking Trekking Guide/Sherpa Sirdar are local people who will provide you well information and introduce you to local culture, flora and fauna. Our trekking guide/ Sherpa Sirdar, Sherpa pitch camp, serve meals and conventional assistance for you on the trail. Porters, Yaks, donkeys (mules) carry all the food, camping equipment and trekkers personal belongings. You carry only day pack with you that includes drinking water bottle, camera, pullover and anything you think you may need during the day.

Our professional cook provides three meals a day (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner). We emphasize on the healthy variety meals that are cooked by trained staffs are prepared to Western hygiene standards to keep you healthy. If you prefer to have pure Nepalese food, it will be served during the trek. Nepalese food generally includes Daal (pulse) bhat (rice) Gudruk ko tarakari (dried vegetables curry).

You are not required to help preparing foods. Some interested to prepare typical food could learn with the cook(s). If the clients' birthday/ anniversary be during the trek period, the trekking friends observe their birthday. Our trekking staff will prepare birthday cake for celebration. The funny / interesting thing is that one of the staff goes to hunt for candles surrounding the village. Trekking cost includes trekking permit & park entrains fees, tourist class transfers, crew's insurance.

For example /Time table on the trek?
6:00 to 6:15 AM: Wake-up call with tea/coffee and a bowl of warm water for washing, Clients pack their duffels and Day-packs.

7:30 AM: Start out on the trail at a comfortable pace (remember the length of the day trips is based on the distance that a porter can walk while carrying a load of 30 kg.)

12:00 to 12:30 PM: Hot lunch is served. The lunch is prepared by an excellent kitchen crew and might consist of rice, daal, French fries, meat, vegetables, fruit and tea/coffee.

1:00 PM: You have plenty of time to enjoy the landscape, take pictures or videos, or stop for a drink in a local pub house.

4:00 PM: Halt for camp. Teatime with tea/coffee/hot chocolate, biscuit and a lot of time to relax or visit the local people.

The most popular way to trek in Nepal is to travel from teahouse to teahouse. Hotel accommodation is most readily available in the Khumbu (Everest) region, the Langtang area and the entire Annapurna region. The tea houses on the trail that are developed are modest and they have electricity,clean accommodation offering foam mattresses in single & twin sharing rooms. Only in our highest stop and in peak season sometime we use dormitory style of accommodation.

Lodges are found on the main trails of the Everest, Langtang and the Annapurna regions. These areas are most populated where we have interaction with local community, Flora and fauna. During the winter season most of the tourists prefer to rest at the tea house (lodge/hotel) due to cold, snow fall and windy air. The adventure tourists, however, are willing to camping trek.

Our treks include Trekking Guide/Sherpa Sirdar and porters. Porters and Yaks who carry client’s personal gears. We arrange all your transfer by private or tourist vehicle, cost includes & organize your trekking permit & Park entrance fees. At last, we provide special services for our patrons and make your trek is so simple and easiest one. UAT will take care of you. After all, you are in Nepal to enjoy trekking yourself.

Meals are included, leaving you free to choose from local menus. On the tea house, lodges/hotels the food is well prepared, but due to the altitudes and seasons, there limits to the range of produce available. With this mind, we have carefully designed more interesting and varied menus than those offered to independent trekkers. The meals are prepared to a similar hygiene standard as on our tented treks.
TREK GRADING (Trek Difficulty)
Prior to embarking on a trek it is best to know which treks matches most with your physical capabilities. For many of our treks, you can choose between staying in tea-house and camping. A tea-house is a local run guest house, but standards vary enormously. In popular areas such as Annapurna, tea houses are more like hotels, with hot water, Western food and private rooms, whereas in remote areas, they are far simpler and more authentically Nepali. Tea-house trekking is less expensive than camping, and is suitable for small groups. With large groups, irrespective of the area, it is more practical to camp. A team of guides, porters and cooks mean you trek in comfort and provide international-style food of a high standard.

Grade 1 – Easy
For trekkers with no previous experience, we offer a diverse range of easy treks generally between 900m/3,000ft and 2,000m/6,500ft. There are always plenty of 'ups and downs' anywhere in the Himalaya and clients need to be regular walkers to get full enjoyment from their experience. However, you should not think that loss of height means loss of interest; while our more challenging treks get you closer to a small number of mountain ranges; lower altitude treks often provide colorful horizons of a whole series of ranges. It is possible however to design 'easier' three to four day treks with perhaps only three to four hours walking per day on request.

The Ghorepani, Jomsom treks are much popular and you will find the terrain and views superb. If the idea of tea-house trekking appeals to you, but you would prefer to escape from the crowds, then the Helambu trek could be your ideal choice. You trek up to within sight of enormous snowy mountains, and then wind at a leisurely pace through a spectacular green valley. The tea-house is simpler here, but you will benefit from the peace of the unspoilt villages and the friendly welcome of your hosts. To really get away from it all, try the Shivapuri trek, Siklis trek or the Royal Trek. Whilst you will still pass through many remote villages, these regions are so unspoilt as to have no tea-houses, and you will need to camp.

Grade 2 – Moderate
Bit more challenging than grade 1, generally between 900m/3,000ft to 3,000m/10,000ft but possibly involving side trips to higher elevations.

For a well-trodden route with good tea-house facilities, you could choose the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, which gets you close to glaciers and affords spectacular houses; try a trek in the beautiful Langtang region. For a moderate trek out in the wilds, Ganesh Himal would be a good choice. With only 100 visitors a year to this region, the local cultural traditions are still very much intact. On this trek, you across the high Singla Pass (4600m.) The Rara Trek is similarly remote and is a good option for the summer season as rainfall is low. As tourists are relatively unknown is these last two regions, you need to camp.

Grade 3 – Difficult
Of course bit challenging, better to have some previous mountain walking experience generally trekking at altitudes up to 4,000m/13000 ft with side trips to higher elevation. Could be ascending up to 500m per day involving some steep climbing. Some treks included here will, in part, be well away from villages on hill- defined mountain trails.

For a popular and spectacular trek, with the possibility of staying in well-developed tea houses, the Annapurna circuit and Everest Base Camp is a good choice. A gradual ascent through a green river valley will lead you up to a number of high passes, where you will reach the altitude up to 5000m. For a real adventure in wild and Makalu Base Camp the Makalu trek traverses many high passes before reaching the Base Camp at 5000m. The Tibetan plateau of Mustang is a wild, treeless desert. The last two treks are possible only if you camp.

Grade 4 – Strenuous
Most exciting and challenging trek. A demanding nature, requiring all participants to be fit and in excellent health, often in remote alpine areas access up to 5000m. For a popular trek, Annapurna circuit and Everest base camp over high passes are good choice. For a real adventure Manaslu over Larke Pass, Kanchanjunga (the third highest mountain in the world) are more exciting. As well we include all Tibet trips primarily because of the rigors of the climate and overall altitude, where the altitude access up to 5000m/6000 ft by vehicle or on foot.

Alpine
Extremely demanding treks sometimes in very remote areas on rough terrain and perhaps including 'trekking peaks' - maximum altitude, Mt. Mera at 461m/21,192ft. Participants should have at least a basic knowledge of use of crampons and ice axes, though first time climbers may be accepted on some of the so called 'easy' routes on these peaks. Medical certificates are required prior to acceptance on any climbing treks.
Trekking Seasons:
Trekking is possible at any time of the year depending on where you are going. Generally speaking, the best months to trek are October-November (post-monsoon) and April-May (pre-monsoon). It is possible to trek throughout the year but trekkers must be aware that bad/ freak weather can strike in any season. Below are details of trekking conditions throughout the year:

Autumn (Sept-Nov)
Autumn is normally dry, stable and offers excellent climate, amazing mountain views and the weather is perfect. Temperatures are usually moderate during this period making it a good time for any trek. It can be cold at night higher up, but not as cold as the winter months (December-January). At low elevations it may still be hot during the day. Autumn is the most popular time for trekking so doesn’t expect solitude on the more popular routes. The Nepalese most important festivals (Dashain and Tihar) are marked during this season.

Winter (Dec-Feb)
This season is noted for occasional snowfall only at higher elevations. So, it’s ideal for trekking at lower altitude, generally below 3200m. Winter is very cold above 4,000 m and high mountain passes may be snowbound. The high-altitude treks require good gear and experience in cold-weather conditions as temperatures at 5000m can drop below -20°C and heavy snow can fall.

Spring (Mar-May)
The temperature is quite moderate in this season. Varieties of wild flowers, especially the rhododendrons are in complete blossom. It is mildly warm at lower elevations and at higher elevation, over 4000m, the Mountain View are excellent while the temperature is quite moderate.

Summer (June-Aug)
This is the favorite season to trek in the rain shadow areas like Upper Mustang, Dolpo and Kailash. This season is also recommended for forest researchers and botanist. . It is recommended to carry Raincoats and insect repellents when trekking during these summer months. During the monsoon season (June-August), you can trek in the rain-shadow areas north of the Himalayan like Mustang and Dolpo. These places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains and are unaffected by the monsoon.
A walk of few or many days up and down trail through the villages, hills & forests is called trekking. Walking through the country side is a unique destination for trekkers because of its unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural riches. The verdant valleys under the shadow of massive snow peaks, the rugged paths, resplendent ravines, wild waterfalls, picturesque lakes and many other visual delights unfold in their utmost beauty and glory. A walk through the hills of Nepal will not only give you a view of the mountains, but also take you through remote villages inhabited by hospitable people who will always well comes you smiling. We invite you to join us on visit to this remote region to see the truth of your dream. A trek is walking at your own pace along well-established village trails, enjoying close contact with people in remote mountain villages whose lifestyle has not changed for generations. Perhaps the most enjoyable parts of a trek are the clean mountain air and the magnificent views of the mighty Himalayan peaks. You will feel at peace with nature and with yourself.

We at UAT are committed to offer very personal and efficient services especially for the trekkers. All trekkers are accompanied by guide, a cook and some experienced staff. Provisions and luggage are carried by mountain horses and at high altitude by Yaks. Whichever trek you choose, it is essential to remember that a trek is not a climbing experience. Camp sites are carefully selected to afford you a walk each day at your own pace and our trekking crews are always around to guide you.
Apart from your hotel stay, your cook will provide you three tasty, plentiful and nutritious meals daily with a variety of local and Western dishes. To start the day, a normal breakfast that consists of a choice of porridge, muesli and cereal followed by omelet, fried or scrambled eggs with chapattis or bread, will be served.

Lunch is generally a selection of salad, cooked vegetable dishes, pasta and traditional breads. As for dinner, you will be presented a hearty three course meal: soup, followed by a variety of vegetable, meat, rice and pasta dishes and complemented with a simple dessert that will soothe your hunger and tiredness after a long day on the trails.

Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided at all meals as per your requirement. We use as much fresh produce as possible and our cooks and kitchen crew maintain exceptional standards of cleanliness and food preparation hygiene. We can always cater for special dietary requirements, should there be a need.

The roads in Tibet can at times become quite rough and impassable for many vehicles, so for this reason we use best Land cruiser 4WD (Toyota 4500). These vehicles are extremely reliable and will make the journey as comfortable as possible. As for the trekking and climbing there will be a truck for carrying luggage and trek equipments. You will be driving for several hours, stopping along the way for photographs or places of special interest, before stopping for lunch at around midday. After lunch you will continue our journey, generally arriving at your destination by 3 or 4pm.
Despite the high altitude of the Tibetan Plateau, the daytime temperatures are actually quite mild. Between April and November the average temperature ranges form 15-25 degrees Celsius and the skies are generally clear and blue. From July to August though there can be odd showers during the day. The nights, however, can be very cold and temperatures can drop below zero degree Celsius. During the day, a light shirt or jumper and lightweight pants will be suitable, but a warm fleece or down jacket is recommended for the evenings.

The best time of year for overland tours in Tibet is from April to November and for treks and Mt. Kailash tour from April to the beginning of October
