What is Trekking

To trek in Nepal is to leave the bounds of western civilization behind venturing on food into remote villages and exotic environments – an experience that can last from just a few days to over a month on the trail: Although no trek is “easy -they all involve at least 6 hours of hiking per day over varying terrain and trekking is not just back – packing. You carry only a light day – pack with jacket, water bottle, camera etc. The only other requirements are some stamina and spirit of adventure and discovery.

We do all the rest cooking, pottering and camp chores allowing you plenty of opportunities to amble peacefully, take pictures, rest or just take in the incredible surroundings. Porters carry personal gear. They carry two trekker duffel bags and since their standard limit is 30 kg. This means that your duffel cannot exceed 15 kilos. Personal gear must be packet for the trek in duffel.

Tents are provided and are carried separately. You will be expected to adjust yourself to sharing a tent with one other person. A toilet tent is setup at each camp. All meals are prepared using kerosene stoves so that we do not contribute to Nepal’s deforestation problem. Our kitchen staff is truly amazing.

Tea House or Lodge Trek

A tea house or lodge trek means that you stay and eat at the lodges along the way. On the classic routes, every planned night stop is well equipped to deal with trekkers – there are numerous lodges that cater to western tourists. There are pros and cons. The beds are usually comfortable, which is a bonus, but the toilets can be far from you at night. The atmosphere can be convivial in tea houses, but in high season this can also mean real overcrowding and delays in the kitchen.

Since not everyone wants the same kind of experience while trekking, based on advice from previous clients we offer a modified and we believe more convenient version of the lodge trek.

A tea house trek organized and supported by More Than Mountain Treks will get you a guide, porters, accommodation in a lodge with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
