Teahouse Trekking in Nepal: What to Expect?

So you are excited about your teahouse trekking in Nepal? No doubt it’s a wonderful idea you will have a treat of a lifetime! Although the feeling of novelty and excitement is there, you are still a bit concerned about your dietary expectations found in these mountain lodges high up in the Himalayas, perhaps you are little worried about the food. Needless to say, but the importance of a well-balanced diet cannot be overemphasized during your trip. Well, here’s an overview on a typical Nepalese teahouse menu, and if you are on a camping trip this will serve as a handy guide likewise.

First, what is a “teahouse trekking”?

This one simply involves going from one teahouse to another during your entire trek for your food and accommodation needs. In the past, it was originally meant as a place where trekkers were provided with basic refreshments like tea (of course), local food and accommodation (mostly on the floor) at a minimal cost or even free. Times have changed and the concept of this style of trekking these days takes a different meaning. Nowadays teahouses basically mean small hotels established along the trekking routes that provide room and board at a nominal price. Most of these establishments are family-owned and home-cooked meals are served, which is an excellent way to experience the daily lifestyle of the local people in rural Nepal. One advantage of such a mode of trekking as opposed to camping is that you don’t have to carry your own camping gears like tents and other amenities, and bringing your own food.

A Wild Journey : Trekking to the Langtang Valley

Leaving Kathmandu Valley

Saturday, Feb 13

They say the Wild West is gone, but that is not so. It can be found in the foothills of the Himalaya, where the last organized settlements of humanity are set into the mountainsides and plateaus. In fact, the Wild West of America more than likely stole their raucous thunder from these kindly mountain people, who were living out that tale long before Columbus even reached those famous shores.

Travel assessment – Langtang

Langtang’s whereabouts, one of the famous trekking routes in Nepal, was still a mystery after the April earthquake wiped out one of its village clusters into dust. Well, not now, as it has just been 5 days I’ve been back from there. Our route was through Syarbu Besi, where we would access the Langtang Valley from the south and trek to the top of Kyanjin Ri overlooking the mountain.

When I was offered a visit to Langtang for its assessment a month ago from Himalayan Glacier, I was pretty excited. Our team included three HGT staff and one foreign national (Connor, U.S.A). In a week’s journey (5 days trek and 2 days bus ride), we discovered something worth sharing to the travel community, and here I am trying to include everything in writing.

There are a lot of things that can be done here. I have described some of them below with the help of a few researches and a friend who had recently been to Ladakh.

Ghorepani, a paradise on Earth

Ghorepani is the ultimate answer to those whose quest is to dwell on paradise; like the landscapes we see in movies, but rarely come across in real life. A mixed delight of trekking and sightseeing at high altitude, Ghorepani trekking is otherwise known as Annapurna Sunrise Trek or Poon Hill Trek.

Located in the north-central region of Nepal, Ghorepani is easily accessible from Pokhara, which demands a 4-5 hours of uphill trek through Ulleri. Based on comfort, it is listed as one of the easiest trekking routes. An early morning climb next day ends up in one standing at the elevation of 10,000 feet on top of Poon Hill.
