In Nepal there are various types of trekking.
Tea House Trekking: In this type of trekking you are travelling in areas which are populated with many small villages, though the areas can sometimes be quite remote , the villages all offer some standard of tea houses. A tea house is normally a family run affair, similar to a small hotel; a tea house offers the trekker accommodation and food. Rooms are normally basic with one or two beds. Sometimes bathrooms are attached sometimes they are on a share bases. Most teahouses offer some degree of hot water, though this depends entirely on solar power, so really its up to the sun. Depending on the tea house, some supply blankets, some don’t. All teahouses will have a common room for dining with a heater around which you can get warm and dry your clothes. All teahouses have a kitchen and will prepare meals tea and coffee for you. It may also be possible to purchase beer, snacks such as chocolate and mineral water. Most teahouses have water filter in the common room which you can use to top up your bottles. As with hotels, obviously the standard varies. When trekking with a guide through a company, your tea house accommodation will be booked in advance for you and the standard will be the best available. When trekking alone esp. in peak seasons, you can experience difficulty in finding vacant tea houses esp. in the more popular areas. Tea house trekking is a comfortable and convenient way of trekking.
Camping Trek: During a camping trek you will be accommodated in tents and all meals will be provide for you form the camp cook site. Toilet facilities will be provide in the form of pit toilets and washing facilities will be minimal. When organized by a company, everything will be provided for you as well as the porters to carry everything you need. Camping is a fun and social way of trekking esp. in large groups. If trekking independently on a camping trek, you should note that In populated areas you may be camping on sites near to tea house which means that toilets and showers may be available to you (you rent the site from the tea house for a small cost) and food and fuel supplies can be readily purchased or you can dine in a teahouse.. In remote areas you will be in the wilderness and no such facilities will be available, it is necessary to carry all required food and supplies with you.
