A Typical Day on the Camping Trek:

Our day on trek begins soon after dawn (and sometimes before) with early morning tea or coffee followed by a bowl of water for washing. After packing kit bags breakfast will be ready. The morning walk usually takes 3 to 4 hours and you are free to walk at your own pace, exploring villages and admiring the scenery before stopping for lunch. After lunch we walk for around 3 hours to arrive in camp by 3 or 4 pm. Now there is time to relax. The three course evening meal is served in the mess tent at around 7pm followed by hot chocolate, tea and coffee. Generally we are in our sleeping bags by 9pm, looking forward to tomorrow's new adventure.

 

Group Size:

Group sizes are kept small, to reduce the impact on the environment and to enable us to provide a more personal service. The maximum Group size on most of our treks/tours is 12 and the minimum  size is 2.

 

Food & Health:

We have set very high hygiene standards on our treks both in preparing meals and when camping as this becomes an important aspect when travelling through remote places. We have initiated training courses for our local staff covering cleanliness, hygiene and conservation. On camping treks our cooks provide plentiful amounts of varied and tasty food using fresh ingredients whenever possible. Meals are usually a mix of local and European. We welcome vegetarians and make every effort to provide as much variety as possible.

 

Extending Your Stay:

It is possible to extend your stay, for a few days or for longer periods. We offer generous discounts when you combine two or more of our treks.

 

Tailoring of Itinerary:

If the dates do not fit or you want to personalize the itinerary we can tailor the holiday to suit your precise requirements. If there are at least two people we would be delighted to prepare a personalized itinerary. All we need is an outline of your plans the rest will be upon us.

 

Physical preparation:

Physical preparation is the single-best way to get more enjoyment out of your trek. The better shape you're in, the easier the trek will be. However, even people in the best physical condition sometimes get ill on the trail, and anyone can get altitude sickness.

 

 

 

Equipment:

We provide a kit bag (for your goods to be carried by porter) and at

teahouses you will have foam mattresses. If you are on camping trek, company

provides the mattresses, tents etc. You may bring your own down jacket and

sleeping bag or you may purchase (one quarter of price in KTM) or hire for

around US$ 1 per item daily. Do not come without “well walked in boots”-poor

boots, poor trek and the best boot the best trek.
