The Trekking Equipment

Tents in Himalaya Local trekking-guide, porters, ponies, yaks, camels Single Tent

Depending on your trekking-destination the provided equipment varies depending on altitude, type of destination and available infrastructure along the way.

In case of trekking-routes in less remote areas or cultural journey with integrated nature- & village-walks all overnights take place in solid accommodations such as simple lodges, farmhouses, guesthouses, cottages or home-stays.

On the other hand some if not all overnights are in tents in case of remoter, lesser-known trekking-routes.
