Normally we will provide dinner and breakfast on the same camp where we will camp overnight and lunch will be provided while walking on the trail which will be packed lunch cooked by our cook. Reception, farewell dinner and breakfast will be provided during your stay in Kathmandu.
On a camping trek, the cook can prepare personally requested food if you advise before leaving Kathmandu. In any case, you will have similar fare to tea houses, except that along the way we may buy some fresh local produce such as fish, chicken or cheese to supplement the supplies. And the cost of all the food we prepare is included in the price of the camping treks – you can eat as much as you like. Our cooks are well trained and very experienced at preparing both western and eastern dishes.

Drinking-water on Camping Trek
We provide boiled water to each trekker minimum of 4 litres a day. Bring a good water bottle, and make sure to consult with your trekking guide about the next day so you can calculate how much drinking water to bring day by day. While on a camping trek, you are in the wild to enjoy nature and the thrill of it. It’s very important that you stay healthy and do not take ill on the trek to have a joyful experience in the wild.
And, Diarrhea is by far the most common problem we encounter on a camping trek. On average, 1 out of 5 trekkers is affected by it. If not well handled, the same Diarrhea can become a nightmare forcing one to retire from the trek itself. Water is a common cause of stomach problems on a camping trek. On the other hand, you need to drink lots of water to stay hydrated and also keep AMS away. So it is very important that you drink it right and hence treat your water before you drink.
Below are the ways to treat your drinking water on a camping trek while not making it too complicated and making it a research subject.
- Boil your water properly when you are at camps.
- Use chlorine tablets for the trail.
- Use TANG or Vitamin C tablets to flavour the water to taste better.
- While it is the responsibility of the Trek Guides to provide you with clean water, the first responsibility is of the Trekker himself. You yourself need to take proper precautions on this matter and purify the water before drinking it every time as you yourself are the best person to monitor yourself. You must make it a habit of a 'must-do' check on the water each time you drink it. Asking the leader or the guide the methods they have used to purify the water or carrying chlorine tablets yourself is the best practice.
Acclimatization on Camping Trek
Alpine Eco Trek is professionals operating at high altitudes. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
