What to expect

A typical day on the trail with a YMH Trek

Wake up to a hot drink brought to your room by our lovely Sherpa team. Pack your bags and get ready for the day then potter down to a leisurely breakfast. The porters will arrive as you’re breakfasting to carry your trek bag up to our next overnight stop. We’ll walk for an hour or so before taking a break and of course there are lots of wonderful views, people and interesting things and photo opp stops along the way too. We usually take a lunch along the route then continue on the trail to reach our next lodge so you have time enough to relax for a while. In Namche the masseur is on hand for appointments: you may like to book in for a treatment. Or you might feel like exploring the local village and hills maybe with your guide or maybe by yourself. We re-group again for drinks around the fire. We finish the day with a three course meal – local style or Western there’s plenty of variety and lots of taste! We tend to drift off to bed fairly early although a quick peak outside at the night sky, particularly higher up where the heavens are really ablaze with stars, can be a late night treat before sleep.
