8 Best Camping Trekking in Nepal

Setting up a camping-style trek involves more logistics than a teahouse trek. And for a few weeks of hiking in the Himalayas, you have to carry all your luggage from Kathmandu. We have to transport group equipment and supplies to remote locations that are often not on a road network. We have a large group of trek teams to support the journey. This includes porters (pack animals), guides, cooks and kitchen staff.

1. Tsum Valley Trek

Tsum Valley Trek is a sacred Himalayan Buddhist pilgrimage valley located in North Gorkha, Nepal. Literally meaning “Tsum”, vivid against the majestic backdrop of Ganesh Himal, Shringi Himal, and Buddhist ranges, this tranquil Himalayan valley is rich in ancient art, culture, and religion. The local people are mostly of Tibetan origin and speak a different dialect. The Tsum Valley trails are lined with artistic chortens and jeweled walls made of thousands of stone slabs with images of deities and engraved prayers. The famous Kyimu Lung, a pilgrimage circuit in the central Trans-Himalaya, is famous for its center of learning and meditation.

2. Rolwaling Valley Trek

Rolwaling Valley is a less explored area located northeast of Kathmandu and west of the Everest/Khumbu region, but Rolwaling is an amazing trek. Rolwaling is a deep Himalayan valley, tucked under the massive snow peak of Gaurishankar (7134m) and considered a sacred sanctuary by local Buddhist residents. The name Rolwaling means ‘plough-carved valley’ and its steep cliffs give the impression of a plow-carved furrow. It is one of the rare treks with very basic facilities, but the rewarding forest and scenery is one of the best in Nepal. Yeti footprints were also photographed in Rolwaling Valley by Eric Shipman in 1951.
