VSN Tour & Treks

FAQ

 

As long as you are in good physical shape, no previous hiking experience is required for short treks. However, if you are planning a trek longer than a week, some physical preparation such as running, swimming, and hiking is recommended before you embark on a trek.
Tea house trekking refers to treks in the well-developed tourist regions of Annapurna, Everest and Langtang-Helambu. On these treks accommodation is in good quality guesthouses and lodges, and western cuisine as well as Nepali food is readily available.

A camping trek is a fully organized and supported expedition with a team of guides, cooks, Sherpa and porters to accompany you. Our porters carry all the trekking gear, food, fuel and personal belongings. Our cooks prepare hot meals. Trekkers need only carry a small bag with their day-to-day necessities. At night, tents, mattresses, sleeping bags and seating will be set up to make a comfortable camp.

On a typical camping trek, we start the day around 6 a.m. with a cup of hot tea. You are then provided with a bowl of warm water for washing and a hot breakfast. After packing up camp, the trek begins around 7.30 – 8 a.m. Around three hours later lunch is served at a midway rest spot, and then another three to four hours later you’ll arrive at the next camping ground. Tea and snacks are served while our staff sets up camp and prepares dinner, which will be served around 6pm. The food during camping treks is healthy and nourishing, and all prepared hygienically.
