Trekking in Nepal
Trekking is the gift of Nepal to the world in adventure tourism. To be one with nature, to regenerate one’s own self-esteem, to rediscover oneself, to appreciate Nepal’s beauty, to interact with its hospitable and friendly peoples are some fo the highlights of trekking in Nepal. Trekking is one long-term activity that draws repeat visitors to the country. Therefore, Nepal is the ultimate destination for the trekking enthusiast. It offers a myriad of possibilities – from the ‘short and easy walk excursions’ to the ‘demanding and strenuous’ challenges of the snowy peaks and their foothills and valleys. But however easy, or moderate, or stenuous, there is something for every palate that goes with trekking in Nepal’s hills, mountains and hinterlands. The most rewarding way to experience Nepal’s indomitable combination of natural beauty and cultural riches is to walk through the length, breadth and the altitudes of Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is as much a unique cultural experience as well as an ultimate Himalayan adventure.
There are two basic types of accommodation in trekking: Teahouse and Camping .
Camping trek (Tented camp):
On a camping trek you will sleep in tents. The staff includes a guide, cook and sufficient porters to carry all trekking gear. Even if you have never camped before, there is no need to worry that you won’t enjoy the experience.
The tents we provide are roomy, the sleeping pads/ mattresses are comfortable and international style food of a high standard is freshly prepared and served. On all of our treks a bathroom tent is provided as well as a dining tent with tables and camp stools, providing a cozy, comfortable atmosphere to eat and chat with fellow trekkers during the evening.
Tea house / local lodge trek:
In Nepal on the more popular treks, enterprising villagers have built tea-house lodges.
In popular areas such as Annapurna , Everest and Langtang , Tea Houses are more like hotels, with hot showers, western food, and private rooms (twin sharing). In this arrangement overnight halts with dinner and breakfast will be in Tea-houses (Lodges) and lunches in local restaurants en-route.
Furthermore as you will be staying in locally owned lodges you will be benefiting and interacting with the local community. It will give you a true feel for the Nepalese people and their lives.
