Tea House Trekking
Annapurna, Langtang and Everest are the three main areas in Nepal where it is possible to walk well defined trails and stay at local teahouses. All you have to bring is a sleeping bag, warm cloths for the evening when the sun goes down, a camera and a water bottle. Teahouses provide excellent food including pasta, curries, muesli and even apple pie and custard.
A normal trekking day involves approximately 3-4 hours steady trekking with rest periods and time to enjoy the surroundings, and an afternoon of 2-3 hours of similar progress.
Taking part calls for a reasonable level fitness and a good attitude. Treks marked "Hard" involve some resolve and stamina, however if you are of average fitness and enjoy the outdoors you should manage well.
A local guide / porter accompanies all departures. Your guide will contribute valuable local knowledge, to enhance your Himalayan experience, and a porter allows you the pleasure to trek with only a day pack on your shoulders.
