Tea house (lodge – INN) Trek in Nepal
Tea house TrekkingIn Nepal on the more popular treks (Annapurna, Everest, Langtang and Helambu areas of Nepal) enterprising villagers have built tea-house lodges ( as seen in the picture). In recent years particularly, the standards of food and accommodation in Nepal have improved enormously. Many would vie in character and comfort with the equivalent European alpine huts. Most now provide twin-bedded rooms. We offer a selection of tea house treks run to a high level of service, using the good lodges available. On trek you are guided by an English-speaking Sherpa guide, assisted by Sherpa staff. All main baggage is carried by porters, yaks or horses / mules.
From the the – Chai Bhati – to Tea house
Established to provide lodging for local Nepalis on journeys to move goods and produce across the mountain passes, the “chai bhati” (or tea house) has become one of the most popular ways to explore the mountains in Nepal. This trip is a “tea house trek” – you’ll enjoy the rustic facilities and, through interaction with local people, gain a real insight into daily life in the Himalayas.

National Park fees are covered and in the cities, good quality hotels ( 3 star) are provided. All airport / hotel transfers are included, internal flights are part of the package and transport to and from roadheads. By using the lodges you will have the closest possible contact with the Nepalese people.
