Due to the difficulty topography of the land, access by vehicle is very limited. Therefore, the best means of exploring the country is on foot and trekking in Nepal, depending on the area you wish to trek in and the degrees of difficulty you are willing to face, a wide range of trek can be organized. A three-day fully organized trek around Kathmandu valley is just a common as a two week assisted tea house trek to the Annapurna Sanctuary.
Since most treks start and end in relatively low areas, climbing towards higher valleys, you will be walking through altitudinal variation; differing natural scenarios, natural vegetation and you may even encounter various wild animals. You will also be able to meet different ethnic groups and discover the various aspects of Nepalese Culture. Mountain views of course will be part and parcel of almost all treks in Nepal and even on some short duration trek, you will have a chance to get incredibly close to the eight thousanders.
A day on the trek
A trek day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of tea/coffee. After packing your duffel and day-pack a breakfast of porridge/muesli/cornflakes/Tibetan bread/egg with tea/coffee is served. The day's trek starts around 7.30-8.00 a.m. Porter carry all luggage and equipment. All you need to carry in your day-pack are water bottle, rain/wind jacket, camera and other small items you may need on the trail. All trekkers walk at their own pace accompanied by the trek guide. With larger groups there is a "lead" and "sweep" sherpa providing support throughout.
The morning's walk to the lunch spot takes about three hours. Around mid-day we usually stop on the way for a simple hot lunch. After hiking for three to four hours in the afternoon campsite, is usually reached between 3-4 p.m. In the late afternoon and evening you can relax, wash, read or take a walk nearby. The evening meal is served between 6 and 7 p.m. in the dining room or in the dining tent if it is camping trek. After dinner the guide will brief trekkers on the next day's hike.
Each day's hike is planned so that trekkers have time to see, photograph and explore the countryside. Anyone who is healthy, fit, enjoys the outdoors and hiking will qualify to participate in our treks.
We offer two mainly two types of trek in Nepal; Treks On the Popular Trail and Treks on Off The Beaten Trail.
On the Popular Trail
Everest, Annapurna, Manaslu and Langtang treks are located on the popular trails because thousands of trekkers trek here every year in and these areas have Tea houses to stay. We don’t have to carry food and tent with us to trek in these regions. We can still make both kind of trek (camping and tea house), however we suggest you to choose tea house rather than camping because camping would be more expensive and less comfort than staying in the tea house.
Off The Beaten Trail
As many trekkers visiting Nepal, many of the trails will be crowded, we therefore offer off the beaten trek so that you will enjoy the wilderness of the country and non ending virgin culture. On this trek we have to be self sufficient therefore we take everything from Kathmandu. There are guide, cooks, sherpas and porters to take care of all the technical and logistical aspect of the trip. We camp at wilderness sites away from the main trails and enjoy the scenery of the country.
There is only one way to make this trek; a fully organized camping trek. As there is no teahouse/guesthouse near by we have to make all camping and be self sufficient. Plese be inform you that now a days at many of trekking areas at off the beaten trail also available home stay accommodation and meals with the local families; and for those who intent to explore the culture and way of life can choose home stay trek but with basic comfort.
