Trekking through the Himalayas is
a unique opportunity to rediscover
the rhythms of nature so easily forgotten
in the west. On the camping trek,
we get up and go to bed with the daylight,
and relax in warm sunshine after leisurely
lunch. Rest stops simply happen because
there are some Yaks grazing to watch,
or because of tempting teahouse at
the top Of a long hill.
We use roomy and
comfortable tents two people to a
tent. There is also toilet tent and
Dining tent set up at each campsite.
It's your job to do the walking and
take photographs, while our trek staffs
take care of the camp
duties and portage.
The day begins at
dawn with a cup of tea being passed
through your tent flap by a smiling
kitchen boy saying- "Good Morning!"
A few minutes later a bowl of hot
washing water arrives. When you have
cleansed, dressed and packed your
duffel bag, just go to your waiting
breakfast, leaving our staff to organize
your tent and bags. Breakfasts are
Our menu is based
on fresh food to provide three nutritious,
plentiful and tasty meals daily. Breakfast
is a selection of cereal, muesli,
and porridge, followed by pancakes,
chapati, puri and local breads. An
egg dish usually completes the meal.
Lunch is a selection of salads, pasta,
traditional breads, and cheese and
potato dishes. Our evening meal commences
with soup and is followed by rice,
pasta and a range of vegetable and
meat dishes. Fruit or a local dessert
complete the meal. Tea, coffee, hot
chocolate, cordial and biscuits are
provided at meals and on request.
We can cater for specific dietary
needs if we know in advance. First-time
trekkers are pleasantly surprised
at the quality of the meals.
operate two types of trekking Style
(Family Individual Trevellers)
These we put together for individuals,
small groups of friend or families
who wish to enjoy their treks on
their own (not joined by other trekkers).
Treks on fixed Dates
The group treks are planned for

thing for you.
Trekking offers something for everybody.
We carry the gear, leaving you to
carry only your day pack. After a
hearty breakfast we hit the trail
- but we don't walk in a line! Everyone
is encouraged to walk at their own
pace. We normally trek for around
three hours in the morning, including
time for rest stops. A hot meal is
served during a long and relaxed lunch
break. After lunch we set off again
for a couple of hours before reaching
the overnight camp where hot washing
water is again provided.
While our staff prepare dinner, you
may enjoy the company with the crew,
explore the area or reflect on the
day's events. The three course evening
meal is served in the dining tent,
while conversation and comparing the
day's experiences provide an ideal
way to round off the trekking day.
Importantly, our day to day itineraries
are flexible with sufficient rest
days in reserve to ensure you have
the best possible opportunity of achieving
Good Wholesome Food
Trekkers need good food. To satisfy
the appetites that build up on the
trail we provide three appetizing
meals a day prepared with fresh ingredients,
and snacks to keep you going. All
our food is prepared by excellent
cooks who ensure high standards of
hygiene and serve a combination of
European and local dishes. Your good
health is our paramount concern.

pleasures to different people. We
continue our commitment to including
rest days and flexible itineraries

itinerary - avoiding the busy trails

slow pace of trekking - and camping
along the way allows you to gain a
much better understanding of the land

We follow ancient trade routes, visit
monasteries and fascinating villages,
and pass through magnificent forests
and flowered meadows that can only
be reached on foot.

TREK GRADING (Trek
1 - Easy
Easy trekking, by Himalayan standards
is generally between 900m/3,000ft.
and 2,000m/6,500ft. There are always
plenty of 'ups and downs' anywhere
in the Himalaya and clients need
to be regular walkers to get full
enjoyment from their experience.
It is possible however to design
'easier' three to four day treks
with perhaps only three to four
hours walking per day on request.
Grade 2 - Moderate
Moderate trekking 900m/3,000ft.
and 3,000m/10,000ft. but possibly
involving side trips to higher elevations.
3 - Difficult
Reasonably demanding trekking at
altitudes up to 4,000m/13,000ft.
with side trips to higher elevations.
Some treks included here will, in
part, be well away from villages
on ill- defined mountain trails.
Grade 4 - Strenuous
Treks of a demanding nature, requiring
all participants to be fit and in
excellent health, often in remote
alpine areas and sometimes
reaching altitudes in excess of
5000m/18,000ft. Here we include
all Tibet trips primarily because
of the rigors of the climate and
overall altitude, varying between
Lhasa, at 3,700m/12,000ft., to high
pass crossing, by vehicle or on
foot in excess of 5,000m/16,000ft.
Extremely demanding treks sometimes
in very remote areas on rough terrain
and perhaps including ( in Nepal)
one or more of the so called 'trekking
peaks' - maximum altitude, Mt. Mera
at 6,461m/21,192ft. Participants
should have at least a basic knowledge
of use of crampons and ice axes,
though first time climbers may be
accepted on some of the so-called
'easy' routes on these peaks. Medical
certificates are required prior
to acceptance on any climbing treks.
