 Watch: Benefits of Eco Camping vs Teahouse Treks in Nepal

Are you choosing between a teahouse trekking trip and our camp-based treks in Nepal? Here’s why you should consider our Eco camps in the Everest and Annapurna regions.

Exclusive eco-friendly campsites offer comfort during your trek and care for the environment and communities in Nepal's spectacular trekking regions. After a good day’s trekking in Nepal you can relax in the comfort of one of our eco campsites located throughout the Everest and Annapurna regions. The camps are exclusively for you, as a World Expeditions trekker, and are located in secluded plots that offer a tranquil camping experience with truly stunning views of the Himalaya.

Features include:

   • Standing height tents with raised beds, mattresses & pillows.
   • Dining rooms that are heated for daily meals and 'down time' – perfect for your healthy breakfasts and freshly cooked, three-course evening meals, or for a place to reflect on the day. The rooms have suitably Nepali atmosphere, with traditional furnishings and woodwork.
   • Flushing, composting and septic, western-style toilets and hand basins.
   • Most of the eco campsites are fitted with hot showers powered by hydro or solar panels.

Serious about the environment and community

During your trek, enjoy the environment with a minimal 'footprint' and at the same time be a contributor to local communities. Below are some of the ways you help achieve this while trekking in Nepal and staying at our campsites:

A camping-based trek employs 25% more local people than a teahouse or lodge-based trek. Our eco campsites and the operations of these generally provide year-round employment and career opportunities for the Nepali people (and you gain an invaluable insight into the local culture via the dedicated Nepali crew accompanying your trek).
We purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from the local communities – further contributing to the local economy.
We ensure that the environmental impact of our campsites is significantly smaller than that of a tea house or standard lodge-based trek:

  • Deforestation is a major ongoing concern for the Nepali wilderness – it's a significant threat to the country's flora and fauna and can be the cause of landslips, which can be a risk for villages. For heating, we burn dried yak or buffalo dung – a sustainable and renewable fuel source that has been widely used as a traditional practice in the Himalaya for centuries. Timber for building at our sites is purchased from Nepal's controlled forestry suppliers,
  • We cook with kerosene or gas,
  • All non-biodegradable refuse – paper and plastic – is incinerated in a clean and complete burn. Non-combustible waste is carried out to the nearest city for responsible disposal.
