Nepal Camping Trek:
This classic style of trekking are especially conducted in remote areas of Nepal supplying all camping equipment along with the food and employ porters to carry your gear and Sherpas to set up tents where you will be sleeping and well- trained cook will prepare hot meals to serve you. You carry your small backpack with a water bottle, camera and your day clothes. As a guide I take care of everything, I employs the appropriate number of porters to carry all equipment, trekking gear and lead the whole crew. The advantage of this style of trekking are that more remote regions, that have no tea house and tea house infrastructure, can be visited. Also control of hygiene is a lot easier than if the trekkers are using tea houses. The disadvantages are the higher cost, especially for smaller groups.
Typical Day on the Camping Trek: :
In a typical Camping Trek day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea brought to your tent, along with a bowl of hot water for your morning wash. Breakfast will be laid on the table consisting of porridge, toasts, eggs, pancakes and tea/coffee. During breakfast we staffs will pack the tents so please have your bags packed before breakfast. After breakfast by 7′ o’clock everyone should be ready to start walking. The reason for this early is to take advantage of the cool morning when walking is easiest; also the morning air is very clear, allowing a better view of the mountains than at other times of the day.
Porters carry trekker’s all personal belongings. Everyone walks at his or her own pace and as the group spreads out along the trail. There is a plenty of time to enjoy the views, meet the local people, take photographs and enjoy the flora and fauna. Even though you are with a group you can walk alone. The porters are slower and cook crews (Sherpas) rush ahead to prepare lunch, which should then be ready when the groups arrive at around 11 o’clock. Afternoon trek end about 3pm when you round ahead to discover your tents already set up by Sherpas in a field near village. The kitchen crew again prepares tea coffee; biscuits will be available in the camp. As we oftern camp near villages a trip to the local inn can provide some light entertainment. Later on, you have free choice to read book or explore surrounding area. The food provided is a combination of western and local cuisine by around 6 pm. The cooks and kitchen staff are fully trained to the highest standard so hygiene. In the evening all staffs makes fun by singing and dancing in the groups. After that around 8 pm most trekkers turn to their tents to enjoy a sound sleep.
Nepal Tea House Style / lodge Trekking:
This type of trekking is popular in the certain regions of Nepal where lodges are available. Particularly in the Everest Region. Annapurna Region, and Langtang Region. In these areas one can trek with a bare minimum equipment and rely on lodge. The basic idea of trekking is same; Here are the services that I provide on tea house treks:
All ground transfer. Three times of meals (Bed tea, Breakfast, Lunch and dinner) accommodation for entire the trek.
Necessary equipment like sleeping bag, down jacket, trouser and raincoat, mattresses for you entire the trek.
Necessary porters and their all expense for the trek.
Trekking permit, National park fee.
Here the porters carries client’s gears and I will be accompany with you as a guide during the day. We sleep in the available lodges on the trails and eat hot meals according to the lodge menu and I take care of all the arrangements. Every day, trek start between 7 to 8 am. Before that we provide you hot water to shower and hot drinks tea/coffee/hot chocolate with Breakfast. Lunch provide between 11 to 12 am and day end.
Obviously this trek will also provide equal opportunity to enjoy the views of the nature and culture. The Camping Trek has richer service than Tea-House Trek because Camping Trekkers pay more for whole crew members.
