Nepal is a trekker's paradise. More than 85% of the total population live in rural areas. Although transport and communications have brought about great changes in the lives of the people, many still live a simple rural life. One need not be a mountaineer or experienced walker to trek in different parts of the country.
Various tours of trekking are offered, from one to several days. When Colonel Jimmy Robes opened Mountain Travel in 1955, his travel company began the history of trekking in Nepal. The concept was similar to the expedition approach used by mountaineers, with guides, porters & tents. Since 80’s the infrastructures for trekking have developed to a very high standard. Currently, in Nepal, two kinds of trekking are popular- Teahouse or Lodge trekking and Tent Trekking.
What is Teahouse Trekking? And how it is organized?
Teahouse trekking is guided walking and very popular in the well-developed tourist regions including Annapurna, Everest and Langtang – Helambu, where western cuisine as well Nepalese food (Dalbhat) is available. Overnight accommodation is in good, clean guest houses, lodges and hotels.You also need a sleeping bag.for Tea House trekking.
What is Camping Trekking, and how it is operated?
A camping trek is fully organized and supported, with a team of guides, cooks, sherpas and porters to accompany you. Our porters carry all the trekking gear, food, fuel and personal belongings. Our cooks prepare hot meals. Trekkers need only carry a small bag as required for the day. At night, tents for dining, sleeping and ablutions tents are provided and set up. Also mattresses and down-filled sleeping bags, tables and seating.
In a typical camping trek, we start the day around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea. You are then provided with a bowl of warm water for washing. Then trekkers enjoy breakfast before leaving camp. The trek begins around 7.30 - 8 a.m.
Trekkers can set their pace for pausing and sightseeing and the walk to the lunch spot will normally take 3 hours. On arrival, you are served hot lunch. In the afternoon, after walking for another 3 to 4 hours, you arrive at the next camp around 5 p.m. Tea & snacks are served while our staff readies the camp. Dinner time is around 6/7 p.m. in the dining tent, lit with lanterns and comfortably furnished. The food is healthy, wholesome and hygienically prepared.
Trekking is possible throughout the year, depending on the region. There are areas unaffected by the monsoon season. October through May is recommended. Less popular is from the end of May to early September, but certain areas such as Mustang or Dolpo, behind the Himalayas, remain pleasant during these months.
