Tea House Trek in Nepal

The most popular way to trek in Nepal for both Nepalese and western is to travel  from teahouse to teahouse, also known as lodge trekking is a relatively cheap way of trekking in where meals and accommodation are provided in a teahouse. In Nepal, it is quite popular to trekking along the many trails, stopping each night to eat and sleep at a local Tea House. Meals depend on the menu at the tea house, usually the simple basic meals of the local people. Although many tea houses and hotels in the hills and mountains are reasonably comfortable, some may be dirty and, in areas where chimneys are rare, rooms may be smoky.
It's a great way to connect with some of the local culture and definitely suits trekkers not wanting to carry back-crushing rucksacks. The standard of lodgings can vary from very similar to a hotel, to something far more rustic.
Teahouses or lodges are owned by local people and provide accommodation and meal facilities. They are great places to meet and interact with locals and experience local hospitality and local culture.

We also provide necessary porters for every group to carry the bulk of your belongings.

Typical Day on Tea House Package
On teahouse trek day starts around 7 in the morning, you can order the breakfast in your guesthouse and after the breakfast, we set off on the day’s walk which consists of two parts, morning and afternoon stage. The morning walk takes about 3-4 hours before we stop for lunch. The afternoon walk is generally shorter and we usually arrive at our destination in time for afternoon tea. After dinner, the evening is the time to relax, read a book, play games, chat with other trekker’s and relive the day’s adventures, before retiring for a well-earned night rest.
