our client says Reise ins geheimnisvolle Königreich Mustang Am 1. Mai 2010 machten sich, 7 abenteuerhungrige Schweizer auf den langen Flug nach Kathmandu. Einerseits mit grosser Vorfreude und andererseits mit einem etwas mulmigen Gefühl, da in ganz Nepal einen Generalstreik vorausgesagt wurde und wir nicht wussten ob unser Trekking ins Königreich Mustang wirklich zustande kommen wird. Doch am Flughafen in Kathmandu wurden wir schon von Yagya unserem Trekkinguide vor Ort freundlich empfangen und er cauffierte uns mit dem Bus das erste Mal durch die Strassen von Kathmandu in unser Hotel im Stadtteil Tamel. Durch den Streik waren alle Einheimischen auf der Strasse, überall wurden Parolen gerufen , rote Flaggen und T-Shirt getragen, es herrschte ein richtiges Chaos und das richtige Leben stand völlig still, ausser wir als Touristen wurden noch in der Stadt herumgefahren. Müde und froh sind wir dann im Hotel angekommen und genossen ein par Stunden für uns bis wir uns dann gemeinsam zum Abendessen trafen. read more View All

THE CAMPING TREKKING
The camping Trek is the traditional trekking type in Nepal. This method allows individual and group travelers alike to visit any region of the country. However, it is generally more expensive then the teahouse Trekking. The camping Trek team is guided by Sirdar and supported  by a local chef and kitchen staff porters and   Sherpa. All equipment, including  personal  belonging  tents ,cooking  gear, food, etc are carried by porters(in the Khumbu region also by peak animal).Sherpa ensure that nothing  and nobody is left behind. Trekking Sherpa and kitchen staff take care of daily task such as setting up camp, packing  loads, getting  water, cooking, doing the dishes, etc. The hierarchically organize staff can be quite  large. When  traveling into regions  where little or nothing can be bought, heavy loads have to be carried. It is therefore not uncommon that each traveler requires four to five Sherpa and porter. On treks in to more developed region this number may be reduced to two or three. The camping trek might initially appear a bit excessive and possibly remind us of colonial times. On the other hand this is also the preferred means of travel for officials and weather local who might substitute tents for other  types of  accommodation .Once used to the daily rhythm and the trekking rules it becomes hard to do without these amenities. Additionally, many travelers enjoy the immediate and positive contact with members of the support team that this form of trekking affords. The trekking  tourism  has created many valuable job and supports a large number of Nepalese and their families through employment in  travel and trekking agencies, transportation, food and lodging, retail, logistics, porting and support More Details:www.gracehimalayan.com

TEA HOUSE TREKKING
The method of trekking described above makes it possible to visit even the most remote of regions where little or no tourism infrastructure exists. on the other hand well known trekking areas like Annapurna, khumbu and  langtang offer individual travelers the opportunity to move from hut. This method is known as the tea house Trek. Teahouse has been around for a long time and it is said that much as a quarter of the population is on the road at any given   time that explains the need for food and lodging way from home. The locals call these teahouses “chiyaa pasal” and the “Bhatti”. In the popular tourist regions they have developed into comfortable lodge and hotels The standard equals  that of mountain huts in the Alps and the traveler can find basic nourishment and lodging. The selection of the lodge in the popular streaking regions is impressive and distance between them is conveniently short. During the main tourist season of October and November, however, Lodging may at times be in short supply. The staff usually speaks or at least understands some English. In addition to the “Swiss roesti” “Spring rolls”,or “spaghetti Bolognese “The quality of lodging ranges from simple dormitory quarters to comfortable double rooms. Most lodges have neither running water nor electricity. In the Khumbuu region the resourceful Sherpas have started   to equip their lodges with fight bulbs run by either solar energy or electricity generated in small  power plants. Today solar energy is frequently to heat water for the shower whereas the cooking is still often done on wood stoves. Nationals parks and Nature Reserves are in the process of implementing regulations requiring the gradual switch to kerosene of electrical stove to further limit the use of wood. Lodging rates are generally quite reasonable. As most of the lodges have to be supplied by porters, the cost of food and lodging rise alone with the distance form measure provision centers. it is therefore  incorrect to think that by using the Tea House Trek method you are eliminating the need for porters. The Tea House Trek method requires little if any support staff and can consequently be arranging more economically. On the other hand it limits one’s range to the three major trekking regions mentioned earlier where the necessary infrastructure is already established.
