About Suman Parai

My name is Suman Parai. I’m Nepali, born near Pokhara, Nepal. 

Since young, I’m passionnate about our world’s unique High Hills. I feel grateful to be your Sherpa and guide you with safety, laughter and wonder. 

Since teenager, I have naturally inclided myself to intense sadhana, leading me to get certified as a yoga teacher. It later led me to practice our traditionnal nepalese healing ceremonies with puja. Spirituality is important for me; as the traditionnal nepalese chamanism has also became one aspect of my practice. 

I love singing and play music. During your journey with me, I won’t miss the opportunity to pull the guitar out and invite you to sing along. 

We are so blessed to be able to do yoga and singing and do puja and sound healing in these sacred temples where few sages got Moksha. 

I can’t wait to meet you there.

FAQ

Here it’s upon your choice. It is important to know your limit.

It’s always a good idea to be physically prepared before embarking on a trek.
While it’s not necessary to have a formal fitness routine, it is important to have a basic level of fitness that will enable you to enjoy the trek safely and comfortably.
If you don’t have a fitness routine currently, you can start with simple exercises like walking, cycling, or swimming and doing yoga/pilates to build up your stamina and strength.

It is recommended to start at least 2-3 months before your planned trek so that you have enough time to prepare your body for the physical demands of the trek.

Here are some tips to help you prepare physically for a trek:

  1. Cardiovascular exercise: Trekking involves a lot of walking, so it’s important to build up your cardiovascular endurance. Start with low-impact exercises like walking or cycling for at least 30 minutes a day, gradually increasing the duration and intensity as your fitness improves.
  2. Strength training: Trekking also requires strength, especially in the lower body. Exercises like squats, lunges, and leg presses can help to strengthen your leg muscles and improve your overall fitness.
  3. Flexibility: Flexibility is also important for trekking, as it can help to prevent injuries and improve your range of motion. Incorporate stretching exercises like yoga or Pilates into your fitness routine to improve your flexibility.
  4. Practice hiking: If possible, try to practice hiking on local trails or hills to get used to walking on uneven terrain and to build up your endurance. You can start with shorter hikes and gradually increase the distance and difficulty as you get more comfortable.

 

Remember to listen to your body and take breaks when you need them. If you have any underlying health conditions, it’s important to consult with a doctor before starting any new exercise routine or embarking on a trek.

A high BMI (body mass index) alone doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t go on a trek.
However, it’s important to consider your overall health level and any potential health risks that may be associated with a high BMI.

Trekking involves physical exertion, including walking over uneven terrain, ascending and descending steep slopes, and carrying a backpack. Having a high BMI may make these activities more challenging and put additional strain on your body. Additionally, a high BMI may increase your risk of certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and joint problems.

If you have a high BMI, it’s a good idea to consult with a doctor before embarking on a trek.
They can assess your overall health and fitness level and provide guidance on whether trekking is safe for you.
They may also recommend lifestyle changes or weight loss strategies to help improve your fitness level and reduce your risk of health problems.

If you do decide to go on a trek with a high BMI, it’s important to take precautions to ensure your safety and comfort.
This may include carrying less weight in your backpack, taking more frequent breaks, and choosing a trek that is less physically demanding.
You may also want to work on improving your fitness level before the trek, through activities like walking, cycling, or strength training. Consider paying extra money to have a porter being assigned only to you, in order to feel free to walk in the mountains.

If you have a leg/hip injury, it’s important to consult with a doctor before embarking on a trek.
The doctor can assess the severity of your injury and provide guidance on whether it’s safe for you to trek.
In some cases, trekking may aggravate the injury and delay the healing process, so it’s important to take the necessary precautions to avoid worsening the injury.

If your doctor gives you the green light to trek despite your leg/hip injury, there are some steps you can take to ensure your safety and comfort on the trek. These may include:

  1. Choosing a trek that is less physically demanding and has a lower risk of aggravating your leg injury. Contact Suman to make about this.
  2. Carrying less weight in your backpack to reduce the strain on your leg. For exemple, you could pay an extra fee to have a porter being dedicated to you.
  3. Taking frequent breaks to rest your leg and avoid overexertion.
  4. Wearing supportive footwear and using trekking poles to help distribute your weight and reduce the impact on your leg.
  5. Consider physical therapy or rehabilitation exercises to strengthen your leg muscles and improve your mobility before the trek.

It’s also important to communicate with your trekking companions and Suman, your guide, about your leg/hip injury, so that they can provide you with the necessary support and assistance during the trek.

Overall, it’s essential to listen to your body and avoid pushing yourself beyond your limits to prevent further injury or discomfort.

Here are some more tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:

  1. Determine fitness level: Assess the fitness level of the beginner to understand their physical capabilities. This will help you select a trek that is challenging but not too difficult.
  2. Choose a well-traveled trail: A well-traveled trail will have more amenities such as signposts, water stations, and shelter. It is also safer as there will be other hikers on the trail.
  3. Consider the length of the trek: For beginners, it is recommended to start with a shorter trek that can be completed in a day or two. This will help them get acclimatized to trekking and build their confidence.
  4. Look for gradual elevation gain: Choose a trek with a gradual elevation gain rather than steep ascents. This will make the trek easier and more enjoyable.
  5. Check the weather: Check the weather forecast before selecting a trek. Avoid treks during the monsoon season or winter when the trails can be slippery or dangerous.
  6. Research the trail: Read about the trail to get an idea of the terrain, altitude, and difficulty level. This will help you select a trek that is suitable for the beginner.

 

Overall, it is important to choose a trek that is enjoyable, challenging but not too difficult, and suitable for the beginner’s fitness level and experience.

It is not recommended for a beginner to choose a difficult Himalayan trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally challenging, especially if you are not used to the high altitude, steep slopes, and rugged terrain. Choosing a difficult trek without the proper experience, fitness level, and preparation can be dangerous for you life and put you at risk of altitude sickness, injury, and other hazards.

If you are a beginner, it is recommended to start with an easier trek and gradually build up your skills and experience. This will help you understand the challenges of trekking in the Himalayas, and also prepare you physically and mentally for a more difficult trek in the future. It is important to choose a trek that matches your health/fitness level, experience, and interest.

Some beginner-friendly treks are :
In Nepal : Panchase, Ghorepani, Mardi Himal and many more.
In India : Nag Tibba Weekend Treks, Bhrigu Lake Trek, Dayara Bugyal Trek, Kedarkantha Trek, Bagji Bugyal Trek and many more.

There is no specific age limit for a beginner trekker. However, it is important to consider your physical health/fitness, health condition, and personal interests before embarking on a trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally demanding, and requires a certain level of physical fitness and, sometimes, endurance.

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are above a certain age, it is recommended to consult with a doctor before embarking on a trek. It is also important to listen to your body and take breaks as needed during the trek to prevent exhaustion or injury.

High-altitude treks in the Himalayas such as EBE (Everest) or ABC (Annapurna) Trek experience snowfall from late December to February.

For Suman, safety is of utmost priority. To adhere to the safety norms, Suman team is professionally trained to handle technical and medical safety.

  2. GPS devices: Suman uses GPS device to track the location of the team and sometimes to navigate through difficult terrain.
  3. Blood pressure monitor and walkie-talkie.

In summary, with proper preparation, a 55-60 year old person who has never trekked before can go for a trek and enjoy the experience.

It is possible for a 55-60 year old person to go for a trek in winter or cold conditions, but it is important for them to be well prepared and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety and comfort.
The first thing to consider when trekking in cold conditions is the type of gear that is necessary. It is important to wear warm, waterproof and breathable clothing, as well as sturdy and insulated boots to protect against the cold and potential snow or ice on the ground.
Layers of clothing can be added or removed as necessary to regulate body temperature.

It is also important to ensure adequate food and hydration during the trek, as the body needs more energy to stay warm in cold conditions.
Trekking poles can be helpful to reduce the strain on joints and improve balance on potentially slippery or uneven terrain.

Another important consideration is the altitude of the trek, as higher altitudes can increase the risk of altitude sickness. It is important to acclimatize to the altitude gradually, stay well hydrated, and consider taking medication to prevent altitude sickness if necessary.

It is recommended to travel with a knowledgeable guide or experienced trekking partner who is familiar with the route and conditions, and who can offer assistance in case of any difficulties or emergencies.
In summary, with proper preparation, gear, and precautions, a 55-60 year old person can go for a trek in winter or cold conditions, and enjoy the beauty and adventure of trekking in these conditions.

There are several Himalayan treks that are suitable for people over 60, but it is important to consider the individual’s fitness level, health, and experience before choosing a trek. Please contact Suman to discuss about it.

Embarking on a difficult trek like the Everest Base Camp (EBC) or Annapurna Base Camp Trek (ABC) trek requires a certain level of physical fitness, mental preparation, and experience. Here are some criteria that a 55-60 year old should consider before joining a difficult trek like the EBC or ABC:

  1. Physical fitness: The EBC or ABC trek is a physically demanding trek that involves hiking at high altitude and over rough terrain for several hours each day. Participants should have a good level of cardiovascular fitness, as well as strength and endurance.
