Know about your equipment !


Himalayan Ecotourism provides all the camping equipment that you need for a safe, hygienic and comfortable stay in the wilderness. And that makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE for any outdoor activities!

We import most of our equipment from a European company known for the quality and reliability of its outdoor gear products.
It is important to mention that unlike many other companies all our gears are double-checked, cleaned and repacked completely fresh after each trek/tour. You will feel like using your own gear.

Understanding that our guests may have different budgets and expectations we give you a choice of two different plans for your trek, an Himalayan Ecotourism exclusive. Both the plans differs mainly in terms of equipment. That's why we introduce them to you on this page.

Our Everest plan is our recommended plan. Be sure to have the best for your safety and comfort. Our Everest plan is unmatched in this part of the Himalayas.
The Everest plan is upgradable. You may like to have a standing height tent for your trek? Or you may need Goose down sleeping bag for a winter trek? Check here for all available customizations/upgrades.

Our second plan is called K2 plan. It is the standard level of equipment provided by most trekking companies except that ... we do our best to garantee you a good sleep : imported sleeping bags, inner linen and a very decent mats.

We have two ranges of equipment : trekking equipment and touring equipment. Although performance and comfort are always the first parameters we take into condideration, we have selected our trekking equipment with a focus on lightness and resilience to harsh mountain conditions, while our touring equipment has been chosen for maximizing the luxury of your camps.



Our Everest plan

While trekking, the camping equipment definitely matters a lot ! When you trek under our Everest plan you put all the odds in your favor for a great outdoor experience.
Here is what we have for you.

The tents

We give you roomy 4-season tunnel-shaped tents.
For your convenience the tents designed for 2 persons are given to a single person, the tents for 3 persons given for 2 persons only and so on. In this way we are sure you will have enough space inside.
You can choose the tents you want. For instance if you are a group of 3 trekkers you can choose either to have a single tent for all of you or a tent for a single person and a tent for 2 persons. The tents available for treks are : single, double, triple and quadruple.
Please note that these are trekking tents, and therefore there are not standing height tents. For standing height tents see our "Customization section" hereafter.

Features of our Everest plan tents :
    4-season, resistant to harsh mountain conditions.
    Double room. One room for your sleep and one large porch for keeping your gears.
    Tunnel-shaped for optimizing the space:weight ratio.

The sleeping bags with inner linen and pillows

For your sleep we have selected the warmer rectangle-shaped sleeping bags available. Rectangle-shaped sleeping bags give you better ease of movement during your sleep and the double layer construction of the bag makes it warm enough for most of the conditions.
For your hygiene we provide an inner linen which is cleaned after each trek. In this way you are entering fresh linen as if you were at the hotel. Don't be scared about smelly and dirty sleeping bags, that doesn't happen with us. Note that the linen will keep you even warmer. When cold conditions are expected we give you linen in fleece.
A small detail that makes a big difference : our small but comfortable pillow. You won't wake up with a neck pain !
For winter or high altitude treks we recommend you to opt for a goose down sleeping bag. See the customizations below.

Self-inflating air mats

There is no compromise on the camping mattress. Whatever the ground condition (stony) at your camp sites our 4 cm thickness air mats will allow you to have a good sleep.

Other provided gears

Under the Everest Plan you will also get a toilet tent, a walking pole and a small stool. These three gears will definitely make a difference for your comfort and safety.
On an indicative basis the following price is per person and based on a group of 4 trekkers going for a 3 day trek.

There could be two reasons for customizing your "Everest plan".

Our K2 plan

You are going to trek under mild conditions, you are ready to go with a bit less of comfort and you are glad to have a cheaper plan, then perhaps our K2 trekking plan will match your expectations.
For the K2 plan we use standard equipment but with important upgrades that still make a good difference. The reliability and comfort of these gears are enough for enjoying your trek during the good seasons.

Here is what you will get under the K2 plan.

The tents

The tents are 2 or 3-season, either tunnel or dome-shaped.
These are standard tents, like the Quechua tents. They will meet your basic requirements of having a safe shelter for a comfortable night.
The tents available for treks are : single, double and triple.
Please note that these are trekking tents, and therefore there are not standing-height tents.

The sleeping bags with inner linen

Even with the K2 plan we do not want to compromise with the quality of your sleep. We have selected imported good quality rectangle-shaped sleeping bags. Rectangle-shaped sleeping bags give you better ease of movement during your sleep.
For your hygiene we provide an inner linen which is cleaned after each trek. In this way you are entering fresh linen as if you were at the hotel. Don't be scared about smelly and dirty sleeping bags, that doesn't happen with us. The linen provides also extra warmth.

Mattresses

Understanding that a bad mat can spoil your nights we've decided to give you very good mats for the K2 plan as well. There a little less comfortable (thiner) that the mats given under Everest plan but definitely much better than the simple yoga mats given by many trekking companies.
You will have either a basic air mat or a double layered rubber mat. Both offer similar comfort.

Other provided gears

Under the K2 Plan you will also get a toilet tent.
On an indicative basis the following price is per person and based on a group of 4 trekkers going for a 3 day trek.

Our "touring" equipment

Himalayan Ecotourism is your outdoor activities specialist for the Western Himalayas.
We take you on trek but also through the gigantic Himalayas by roads in a SUV or on a motorcycle.

The equipment for our tours is obviously not the same than the equipment for treks. The main reason being that on trek we mind a lot about the weight of the equipment that has to be carried by our staff. While on tour we do not care so much about the weight of the equipment that is carried in a Jeep.

Therefore we coud easily upgrade the comfort of touring equipment compared to our trekking equipment.
The main differences are the standing-height of the tents, the thickness of the mattresses and the comfort of our outdoor furnitures.

This is a very good news for all those who simply would like to camp in the wild without an hassle, without having to trek. You can use our extremely comfortable touring equipment for your fishing camp or any other easy camping activity that we proppose here.

On special request some of our touring equipment can be carried on trek as well. Especially for large groups.

Here is the list of our touring equipment.

  •   A large Tipi tent with a porch for keeping your shoes, 2 large windows, a comfortable ground carpet and an optional partition that makes 2 sleeping rooms for your privacy. The tent can accommodate up to 10 persons. On your request we can set up a wood stove inside the tent !

  •   A big 3-season, standing-height family tent. It has a sleeping room and a large living area, big enough to enjoy your time with the family or your friends. Suitable for a family up to 4 persons.

  •   A tipi sleeping tent. This tent is the ideal combination with our large Tipi tent for bigger groups. You can sleep very comfortably by two in these small Tipi tents while enjoying your time all together in the large one.

  •   Self-inflating mats. For our tour the mats are 8 cm thick which makes them as comfortable as your bed at home.

  •   Very comfortable camping table and chairs for the best outdoor experience.
