Lodge to Lodge Trek

The most popular way of experiencing the classic treks in Nepal is by using local inns for accommodation. Decent hotels for accommodation are available in the Annapurna, Langtang and Everest Region. In these areas, you can operate with a bare minimum of equipment and simply rely on lodges for food and shelter. Though the bed is available in the lodges, there are cotton-filled quilts, often which may not be sufficient for many tourists. So it is always better to carry your own sleeping bags. A teahouse trek is organized whereby well-equipped porters will carry your luggage and well-experienced guide will arrange your food, accommodation and deal with bureaucracy as a part of the package.

Camping Trek

This is a classic style of trekking in Nepal. This type of trekking is primarily of camping in tents, whereby porters are employed to carry your gears and Sherpa's are to set up camp cook will serve meals. You carry your small backpack with only a water bottle, camera, and Jacket. In the camping treks, there are numerous hidden expenses that drive up the price depending on the destination, mode of transportation and size of the group. Because of the food which is carried by the porters, a variety of meals is possible. On camping trek, you sleep in a tent so our itinerary should not rely on village settlements. Rather we can comfortably trek to remote regions and to high altitudes. A camping trek is directed by well trained and well-learned guide, skilled cook, Sherpa and a team of insured porters.

Backpacker Trek

The well-experienced team will facilitate the backpackers with just a guide or porter for those who are not willing to face uncertainty, traveling alone and those who don't want to face bureaucracy. This is especially for having one assistant is exclusively helpful in case of sickness, emergency and remodeling your itinerary.
