Types of Trekking

Trekking in Nepal is a heavenly and popular activity due to the mesmerizing beauty of nature, snowcapped mountains, and unrivaled scenery at high altitudes. Trekking in the laps of the Himalayas and inhaling fresh air straight from the glamorous mountains is something you wish to live. We categorize trekking in Nepal into two types: camping trek and GAP trek.

Tea House Trek

Tea house trek, known as lodge trekking, is the most common form of trekkings. Tea houses are for eating and resting during hikes or treks. Several popular trek routes like the Everest circuit, Annapurna circuit, and Langtang circuit have tea houses in different areas at regular intervals contributing trekkers to pack fewer supplies and food. It allows trekkers to connect with local culture and traditions while staying in a lodge. Most of the teahouses in the trekking routes are well managed and clean, but some can be found dirty. The quality and service of the teahouse depend on the location; the higher the altitude, are less likely to get low services and food items. 

Camping Trekking

Unlike tea house hiking, camping trekking in Nepal is less well-known. All trekking areas provide the option of doing a camping trek. Team members include a guide, an assistant guide, a porter, a chef, a kitchen assistant, and a camp helper. This trek is organized trekking as all the required things like sleeping bags, tables, dining, permits, transportation, and entrance fees are arranged. We can organize this trekking on the trekking routes like Upper Dolpo, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, and Tsum valley trek. This type of trekking is ideal for those looking for a less crowded route with fewer teahouses and hotel options. Walking in remote areas with limited contact with today's society is a unique experience that can only be gained through this kind of trek.

Gap Trek

GAP stands for Guide, Accommodation, and Porters. Trekking guides and porters are on hand to accompany travelers on their highland trek. Those prepared to travel with just a guide and porter to unique adventure locations like snowy mountains, endless cultural variety, and stunning surroundings may get more out of their trek. Trekkers can trek in full safety, supported by experienced professionals informed about the Himalayas and the nearby areas.
