In Nepal we are providing you several kinds of trekking tours : Popular one is the tea house trek
( Inn to INN walking), we eat and sleep in those simple lodges in the mountains. The other one is the camping trek means a tented trek we organize with whole trekking crew, also called organized trek ( camping trek ) Or some are village home stay treks, in local people’s house in the mountains of Nepal.
Tea House (Lodge Trek)
Also known as lodge trekking is a relatively cheap way of trekking in where meals and accommodation are provided in a tea house. In Nepal, it is quite popular to trekking along the many trails, stopping each night to eat and sleep at a local Tea House. Meals depend on the menu at the tea house, usually the simple basic meals of the local people. Although many tea houses and hotels in the hills and mountains are reasonably comfortable, some may be dirty and, in areas where chimneys are rare, rooms may be smoky.
It’s a great way to connect with some of the local culture and definitely suits trekkers not wanting to carry back-crushing rucksacks. The standard of lodgings can vary from very similar to a hotel, to something far more rustic.
Camping (Organised Trek)
The classic style of trekking in Nepal and can be conducted almost anywhere in the country. Camping trekking is fully organised and supported with a team of guides, cooks, sherpas and porters to accompany you.
All the necessary trekking gears; food, fuel and other goods are carried by the porters. The cook will prepare all the meals during the camping trek. Trekkers need to carry only a small bag as required for the day. At night, tents for dining, sleeping and ablution are provided and set up. Mattresses, sleeping bags, tables and seating are arranged by staff. A Sirdar (chief guide) is employed to pre-arrange and then to oversee the entire program. All land transportation, local permits, taxes, porter insurance, port dues and entrance fees to National Parks or sites constituting an integral part of the trip are arranged.
Home Stay Trek in Nepal
In recent days we have developed some home stay treks in Nepal called village tourism for sustainable tourism, to generate the income for local people in rural area. Chitwan Chepang Hill trails, Langtang Tamang Heritage trails, Ghale Geoun – Ghana Pokhara, Ruby valley trek, Rara trek are few to name. In this Himalayan treks you may stay few nights with a local family or in an alternative ‘home’ such as monastery with guest accommodation, or a large family house which has been extended to provide rooms for paying visitors. Accommodation and facilities in these home stays tend to be very simple. Please contact to us if you are considering a trip which includes home stays and would like more detail.
