Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How are trekking
expeditions in Nepal , and how should I choose the right
You need not have to be an athlete, trekking in
the Himalaya and among the people is itself an
athletic experience as trekking or hiking is not
mountaineering. Anyone with a pair of strong
legs and a spirit of adventure to explore the
exotic will enjoy the thrills of trekking.
It is important to remember, however, it requires an adequate
level of physical preparation in walking on the mountains. Plus, of course there
is the Makalu Adventure's element of choice. You choose whether to trek for 3
days or 35 days, whether to sleep under tented camps or lodges.
What are the ways of organizing trekking Nepal Tibet- Camping or
Our trekking trips include wide range of planning, and organize any type of
trek you prefer.; either a camping trek or a tea house (lodge-to-lodge) trek.
On camping trek, we'll have world class camping equipments
for staying on tented camps, hot and fresh food will be prepared and served by
our professional kitchen crew. While on tea house treks we will stay on the
local lodges on the way and have food as available there.
You recommend Camping Trek or Teahouse (Lodge-to-Lodge)
We recommend on going for camping treks for some reasons. Only on camping
arrangement you can enjoy true experience of trekking in the Himalaya. Staying
on tented camps overnight, and enjoying foods cooked by the kitchen crew will be
different in itself.
Our crew will be carrying all equipments of logistic support,
and food will be hygienic and clean of course, much better than one can get on
local lodges. In addition to all these, a number of Nepali people (guide, sherpa,
cook, helpers and porters) will get employment for a couple of weeks. Hiring
people means helping their families as well and more important in context of
Nepal, you can realize.
While on teahouse treks, you will stay and take foods as
available on local lodges. We need to be very careful with the food in lodges
whether or not it is hygienic, and water if it is pure.
Beside all these things, only the lodge owners will mostly
and directly benefit from the trekking groups taking away employment of many
people. So we ought to stay on camps.
