All the camping types of equipment such as kitchen, dining, dome and toilet tents, kitchen equipment, fuel, and all consumable goods have to be carried from Kathmandu which needs more manpower. All of our guides and porters are fully insured so you don't' have to worry about them in case of emergency. Our team believes that our customer care is the first priority.

How Difficult is Mundum Trekking?


Mundum trek is an easy graded trek. The trekking trails are easy. Also, the trek does not go to a very high altitude as compared to some high altitude treks in Nepal like Everest base camp, Annapurna Circuit, Manaslu, Kanchenjunga, and several others. Bring your family and friends on the trek. Anyone with good physical fitness can do this trek.
Mundum Trek is an easy trek which is fit for those who has the ability to walk 5-6 hours of walking uphill and downhill in a day carrying the personal day pack. Some days are longer with 7- 8 hours of walking as well. MundumTrek is low altitude trek which demands less physical, however having strong determination, positive vibe and average physical fitness can complete this trek. Doing some physical exercise a few weeks prior to the trip is better but technical skill is not required for this trek. If you are taking medicine for heart, lung or blood diseases, please kindly consult your doctor and inform to Halesi Treks.

Travel Insurance

This is a real adventure in high altitude so obtaining a travel insurance is always a good idea for your safety and is highly recommended too. Your travel insurance policy should cover helicopter evacuation and medical expenses in an emergency. There is not any Nepalese insurance company to sell travel insurance policy so you better buy a good one from home. There are some insurance policies which covers only in low altitude below 4000 mt. and some only in high altitude above 4000 mt. So before you purchase it, please double-check the policy what it covers and where are you going.

Best Time for Mundum Trekking

Mundum trekking is a newly opened trek in Nepal that is suitable for trekking in all time of the year. You can go for Mundum trekking at any time when you have a vacation. But for best visibility, Autumn and spring are always the best seasons.

Ground Transportation

Highway in Nepal is safe, however, sometimes transport can be halted due to landslide, strike or by political unrest. Add a cushion of a few extra days in your onward travel schedule, advised as a margin of safety for your international flight from Nepal. We, therefore, advise that you schedule at least an extra days cushion in your itinerary to avoid conflicts with international flights out of Nepal. In that case, Halesi Treks can arrange activities with your additional days in Kathmandu before your flight home.
