What is Trekking?
Trekking literally means traveling on Foot in the same style as the early explorers on this land. Trekking with us is not ‘backpacking’ as we provide full and hassle-free service whereby you only carry a daypack for your personal valuable kits.
What is the routine while on trek?
A typical day starts around dawn when the guides bring a ‘Wake up’ cup of tea/coffee. This will be followed by a bowl of hot washing water outside the tent. After packing the kit a hot breakfast is served and most are on their way by 8 am. Morning walk lasts around 3 to 4 hours and walk will be at trekker’s pace. There will be ample time to take the scenery. Cooked lunch is normally provided at noon. The afternoon walk is normally around 2 to 3 hours. The overnight camp is reached by mid/late afternoon. Tea is served while the tents are pitched and the evening meal is served around 6 to 7 PM. There could be evening entertainment by the locals in some the areas.
Trekking is mostly on well-maintained trails but there are routes over ‘Off the beaten tracks’ and through rugged terrain. All of our treks are graded and summaries of what you can expect are:
Grade Easy – Easy treks up to about 2000m over well-defined tracks. Plenty of Ups and down but those leading an active lifestyle can easily manage it without any problems.
Grade Moderate – Moderate trekking reaching over 3000m at times over fairly rugged terrains. A visitor must be a regular hill walker/ hiker.
Grade Moderate to Strenuous – Moderate and strenuous and will involved going over 4000 – 4500m passes. Trails are in some part not so well defined and fewer habitation.
Grade Strenuous – Strenuous trekking and a genuine Himalayan adventure. Will involved trekking up to 5500m, therefore, a visitor needs to be fit and prepared to tackle difficult terrain and remote area.
To really enjoy all grades of treks, we recommend that visitor exercise regularly prior to departure.
Types of Treks:
Full-Service Camping Trek (Trek-in-Style):
Available on all routes and the only option in remote areas. Service provided are:
High-quality sleeping (Single or two men) tents. Dining, kitchen and toilet/shower tents plus sleeping bags.
Three meals a day with a choice of European or Nepalese menu prepared by our expert chef. Experienced Sardar and Guides to attend to every need of trekkers.
Porters (in some areas yaks or Ponies) to carry all the camping equipment – small daysack is all that trekkers carry.
Waterproof duffel bags to put trekker’s clothing.
Tea House Service Trek: In some of the popular routes (Annapurna, Everest, and Langtang) there are ‘Tea Houses’ (Lodges) along the routes. These lodges provide private rooms and dormitories that are basic but warm and hospitable. Some have a hot shower as well.
We ask that you quote Camping or Teahouse when booking your choice or making inquiries for details.
Trek Routes: We offer a variety of trekking routes throughout Nepal to suit most of the requirement of the customers. Some are fairly easy and short with more strenuous treks going over or camping at 4000m to 5000m altitude. In addition, we also organize tailor-made treks for special interest groups, families and organizations to suit their particular interest. Most treks can be preceded or followed by Wild Life Jungle Safari in the Royal Chitwan or Bardiya National Park and or White Water Rafting on the many bailing reivers fed by the Himalayas.
