Trekking in Nepal is one the most popular activities in the Himalayan country of Nepal. Typical trekking holidays in Nepal involve 4 - 9 hours hiking per day. The trails vary from easy walking at lower elevations to the strenuous hiking at over 5000 meter in Himalayas. It’s not only the stunning landscapes on the trail that hypnotize the trekkers but also the people from different ethnic groups whom they meet on the way – a rare opportunity to experience Nepal’s rich cultural diversity. A common misconception is that if you are a slow walker you may hold people back. Not so! The day group members often string out and there will usually be an hour or two between the first to arrive and the last. You walk at your own pace and stop to rest when you feel like it. There will be always someone from the staff nearby to ensure your safety and guide you to your destination. We have designed the trekking days so that your walking is enjoyable and safe. The companionship of other trekkers and staff provide great company and many memorable events. Be prepared to make friends!
Blossom Expeditions supply all camping equipment: two-man tents, mattresses, tables, chairs, dining and toilet tents, all cooking and eating utensils. Each group is accompanied by a guide, assistant guides, cook, cooks assistants and porters. The guide employs the appropriate numbers of porters to carry all the food, equipment and your personal gear. The day normally starts at 6 A.M. with a cup of tea brought to your tent and a bowl of warm wash water. Next you have to pack your kit bag and then breakfast is served. While you are eating your breakfast, the staff strikes camp and moves out. After three or four hours walking we will stop for lunch. This is usually a light cooked meal followed by a rest during the hottest part of the day. You will walk two to three hours after lunch and tea and biscuits will be waiting for you on arrival at camp. Our staff will soon erect the tents. Shortly after sunset a hot, three course dinner is served. The food supplied is the best available and is a mixture of Nepalese and western food. Some tinned food is provided but the staples are rice, noodles, potatoes, fresh vegetables, cheese and eggs.
Lodge treks, which are also known as tea house treks, accommodate a small group of people plus one or two guides and the porters they hire to carry your personal gear. The guide pays your food and lodging throughout the trek. You will stay at small tea shops or guest houses, which provide all the basic needs. Some lodges have a long menu, bottled drinking water, a hot shower, and an attached bathroom. Some are just primitive huts with a communal sleeping room and only Dal Bhat on the menu. Lodge treks are possible only where there are suitable accommodations, so you must be prepared to see the range of accommodations. A willingness to rough it a little may allow us to take you to spots that the typical trekker will never get to.
