What are the differences between Camping and Tea House Trekking in Nepal?
Trekking in Nepal has different types of experiences. If you are familiar with trekking there are various types of accommodations during trekking in Nepal. In Nepal, most higher altitude trekking’s accommodations are done in Tea Houses. These are the best options available there. These Tea Houses are a small restaurant with the availability of various items for foods along with rooms for accommodation.
Tea House accommodation in the higher region is best during the trek whereas there are some trekking routes which are rare or isolated treks that have no options for Tea House accommodations. You can find some places to eat or you have to carry your food equipment with you. Such types of trekking is more exciting and comes with much thrill. In such trekking, you can get experience of Camping. Such trekkings are done with enough camping equipment and people capable of setting camp and preparing their foods.
Camping trekking in Nepal is a different type of experience which you will never experience in the world. This trekking experience takes you through huge dense forest on one day whereas take you to the lap of Himalayas on the next day. You can literally set up your camp at most extreme locations on the planet.
Mostly we’ve divided the Camping Vs. Tea House Trekking into two types of categories, one is the Isolated Trekking while others are the normal treks which are on choice of most of the people. Besides that, you can still camp on the normal treks in Nepal.
Comparing on the Tea House Trekking vs. the Camping Trekking in Nepal, here are few differences that we’ve listed down.
- Thrill: Camping Trekking has more thrill than compared to the tea house trekking in Nepal. While on a Tea House Trekking things are more calm and predicted as everything is preplanned.
- Less Planned trip: In a teahouse trekking you should have to walk till your destinations while doing a camping trekking, if you like a location and want to spend some time there, all you have to do is set up your camp in the Location.
- Lower Cost: During camping treks, you don’t have to spend your money for lodging every single day if you own a tent, therefore it can cost you low.
