What is tea house trekking?
Tea house trekking is the most popular form of trekking in Nepal. A tea house is a basic lodge that offers a bed and meals, most of the tea house you can get/buy hot showers. You can have Nepali to western food and can choose it from the Menu. It involves stopping each night to eat and sleep at a local Tea House on the way.
