Remember that however we cater your trek not only it boosts hill economy and provide employment for the peoples from remote villages but also assures life time safety of the porters and aids in community welfare.
Type of Trekking
Tea House Treks
The most popular way of experiencing classic treks of Nepal is by using local inns for accommodation. Decent hotel accommodation for trekkers is most readily available in the Annapurna, Langtang and Everest Region. In these areas you can operate with a bare minimum of equipment and rely on lodges for food and shelter. Though bedding is available in the lodges as a cotton-filled quilt that may not sufficiently incubate you. So it is always better to carry your own sleeping bags.
A teahouse trek organized by Mountain Guide Team  is an escorted lodge trekking with well-equipped porters carrying your luggage and well-experienced guide arranging food, accommodation and dealing with bureaucracy as a part of the package.
Camping Treks
The classic style of trekking in Nepal is to camp in tents and employ Porters to carry your gears and Sherpas to set up camp, cook and serve meals. You carry a backpack with only a water bottle, camera and Jacket. In the camping treks there are numerous hidden expenses that drive up the price depending on the destination, mode of transportation and size of the group. Because of the food is carried by the porters, a variety of meals is possible. On camping trek you sleep in a tent so our itinerary should not rely on village settlements. Rather we can comfortably trek to remote regions and to high altitudes.
A camping treks directed by Mountain Guide Team  caters skilled cook, required no of Sherpas and a team of insured porters all led by well-learned and experienced guide.
Backpacker Treks
Eco Trek also facilitates the backpackers with just a guide or porter for those who are not willing to face with uncertainty, traveling alone and those who don’t want to face with bureaucracy. Having one assistant is exclusively helpful in case of sickness, emergency and remodeling your itinerary.
No climbing Skills Needed
Weather you begin your trek at a road head or fly in to a remote mountain airstrip, a large part of your trek will be in the Middle Hills region at elevation between 500m-3500m. In this part of Nepal there are always well-developed trails through villages and mountain passes. Even at high altitudes there are intermittent settlements used during summer by shepherds, so the trails, though often indistinct, are always there. You can easily travel on any trail without the aid of ropes or mountaineering skills. There are rare occasions when there is snow on the trekking trails.
Physical Effort Is Required
A trek is physically demanding because of its length and almost unbelievable changes in elevation. On most treks, the daily gain is less than 800m in about 15Km, though ascents of as much as 1200m are typical for some days. You can always take plenty of during the day to cover this distance, so the physical exertion, though quite strenuous at times, is not sustained. There is always plenty of time for rest. A Previous experience of hiking and living outdoors is helpful, as you make plans for your trek.
Trekking In Group Is Not Necessary
As these routes in the hills provide special meeting place for the trekkers from throughout the world, traveling in group is not necessary. Rather you can move at your own pace and set your own schedule by not being in group. You can spend a day photographing or make a side trip or just lie down. Each day you will be accompanied by considerable number of trekkers. You can freely alter the routes with in the limits imposed by your trekking permit and your guide will reschedule your itinerary accordingly.
Am I too young or old?
We have had a range of ages on our trips, from teenager to pensioner, and all have enjoyed themselves without any problems.
I am a single trekker. How does this work?
Normally single trekkers have no problems fitting in with a group. Normally single trekkers share rooms or lodges with other trekkers of the same sex, but if we have an odd-number we ensure that a room or lodge is organized accordingly.
Will I be able to deal with the high altitude?
Our itineraries are designed so that our clients ascend at a sensible and safe rate. The effects of altitude are felt by everyone, even the Sherpas, but most people find that gentle acclimatization allows them to reach their high point without any problems.
How will my booking be processed?
To confirm your booking we will require a non-refundable deposit of $200 for treks and $300 for a climb which can be made by bank transfer. The balance is payable on arrival in Kathmandu and is normally made in the form of a Money Order or Travelers Cheques. Alternatively this can be made by bank transfer shortly before arriving in Kathmandu.
