Types of Trekking

Tailor made treks

Tailor made trekking expeditions are one of Mountain Travels’ specialties. With the resources, experience and inside local knowledge from the best guides in Nepal, Tiger Tops and Mountain Travel can arrange a personal trek that accommodates your desired level of adventure. You may choose to follow popular routes and experience Nepali village life on a teahouse trek or venture out into the wilderness on a trip to rural Nepal, arguably some of the most remote locations on earth. Our team of trekking experts will help you plan a once in a life time trek, taking into account your timeline and budget. Tailor made treks are great for families that require flexibility or avid adventures seeking a challenge.

Tented treks

Tented treks offer a greater wilderness adventure and an arguably more authentic trekking experience. With the flexibility to trek on more remote and less travelled routes, tented treks offer a truly personal engagement with the land and its environs. Less travelled areas such as Upper Mustang, Dolpo, Humla, Lake Rara, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Rasuwa at the north end of the Trisuli River, can be accessed by tented treks. Or maybe you want to loose yourself in the east; Makalu base camp, the Arun valley, Topke Khola area and the Kanchenjunga Massif also beckon. Tented treks cover both alpine style and climbing treks. Led by an experienced trekking manager with a dedicated team of Sherpas, guests will be provided all sleeping, dining and toilet tents, in addition to sleeping bags and mattresses.

Recce treks

Join us on a recce trek when we explore new trekking routes in the Himalayas. The recce trek is for the more adventurous trekker as we move into unknown terrain, with uncertain paths and conditions. It will be a fully supported expedition trek, which allows us to enter the most remote and untouched regions of Nepal. A recce trek includes the provision of all meals and a Sherpa team consisting of a Sardar, a cook, support Sherpas, and locally employed porters. We also bring a local guide who can teach us about the route and the local culture and traditions in the area. Currently, we are exploring the Far Western region of Humla where several valleys and passes are only very little known to even the locals.

Teahouse treks

Trekking on a teahouse trail is an enchanting engagement with majestic mountain landscapes and local Nepali villages. A delicate blend of culture, nature and adventure, teahouse treks are perfect for those with limited time to experience all the wonder Nepal has to offer. Teahouse treks are generally on the more popular and easily accessible routes of the Everest, Annapurna and Langtang ranges. Guides, support Sherpas and porters will be provided for the trek, leaving you free to absorb the beauty of the surrounding environment. After a long days trek, settle into the ease of simple but comfortable teahouse lodgings, chat with fellow travellers over a hot cup of Tibetan butter tea, explore the surrounding village, or relax in the late afternoon sun.
