Types of trekking holiday in Nepal
Tea House/Lodge Based Trekking holiday
The Nepali word “Bhatti” translates well as "teahouse" in English. It is a bit pretentious to call some of these village establishments a hotel, but the Nepalese use of English translates restaurant or eating place as "hotel". Since the word hotel has, therefore, been pre-empted, Nepalese use the word "lodge" for sleeping place or hotel. Thus, in the hills/mountains of Nepal a "hotel" has food, but may not provide a place to sleep, while a "lodge" always offers accommodation and meals. Many innkeepers specify the services they provide by calling their establishments "Hotel & Lodge". To avoid all this semantic confusion, most people use hotel, lodge and teahouse interchangeably. In reality you can almost always find both accommodation and food at any trailside establishment.
The most popular way to have trekking holiday in Nepal is to travel from teahouse to teahouse. Hotel accommodation is most readily available in the Khumbu (Everest) region, the Langtang area, Manaslu Region, Mustang Region and the entire Annapurna region. In these areas, you can experience trekking holiday with minimum of equipments and rely on teahouses for food and shelter.
