Trekking Etiquettes that must be followed by the trekkers

Trekking is another most adventurous outdoor hobby or experimental journey practiced by the national and international backpackers in Nepal. Trekking burns additional calories and allows one to get a "front-closer "view of trees, hills and the snowy mountains. Trekking can be simply defined as a practice of walking through the trails running across the rural or wilderness areas. The major objective of people while on a hike is to explore and enjoy the scenic beauty of Nepal. English speakers throughout the world are pretty familiar to the term "Trekking" but their meaning varies in accordance with the origin. Now, let's understand a few differences in usage of the term "Trekking" in countries such as the United Kingdom (UK), Australia, New Zealand, and Nepal.
  1. United Kingdom (UK)- The  British native considers the word "Trekking" to be out-of-fashion. Hence, they prefer the term "hill walking" or just "walking" instead of "trekking".
  2. Australia:  The natives and non-natives of Australia call off-trail and on-trail trekking as "Bush Walking".
  3. New Zealanders: People landing to NEPAL from New Zealand use the term walking or bushwalking instead of Trekking. But, for longer or overnight walks (in trail/non-trails), they call it by the name "tramping".
  4. Nepal: In Nepal "trekking" is used for outdoor walks to hills or any other area. But, when you pack your back to walk to the mountainous region then it is known as "Trekking".
We may come across the term "cross-country trekking" and" backpacking". These words can be considered a synonym for the word Trekking. In addition, many people use the term "Thru-trekking" when they walk from one end to another end and then back of trails with a longer length.

Things to Consider while on Trekking

  1.  Hikers most often look for an exquisite naturally rich area to hike. Amusingly, the region selected for a hike by outdoor adventure lovers tend to be fragile and may hold some cultural aesthetic value to people residing there. Also, sometimes hikers unknowingly happen to destroy the environment which they appreciate. Destruction of resources of nature by one individual may not damage the environment to its worst but similar action by a large number or group can reduce the beauty of nature.
  2. In Nepal, protected areas have certain rules and regulation which is required to be followed by the guests. These rules are made in order to protect the greenery and endangered species living inside the area. Park rule forbids burning firewood, camping across restricted areas, disposing human waste and limitation on a number of hikers on a daily basis.
  3.  Proper need for Human waste Management is something you should always remember when on a hike. Human waste tends to pollute the water resources found region and many other hikers tend to get sick when on the trip.  Its best advised to dig waste holes about ten to twenty-five centimeters and to top it with soil after use. This type of ground hole is commonly called as "Catholes". Make sure to dig such holes about sixty meters away from lakes, rivers, and a pond as these preventive measures reduce the chances of contamination. And do not forget to mark it with a stick so that other hikers can use the same catholes.
  4. Most of the hikers love to enjoy the symmetry and exclusive features of threatened animals and birds. Before entering the endangered species zone, hikers are to learn and understand the nature of these species in order to avoid human-wildlife conflict.
  5. Hikers do make an impact on the natural environment where they are planning to travel to. So, take into consideration points before you take a trip to any alluring natural region of Nepal. As an example, we can consider the story of a backpacker from Czech. In the year 2005, the backpacker had traveled to National Park in Chile.  The traveler disobeyed park rule used handy stove and burned 7% of forest area. Hence, we advise you to be one of the responsible hikers!

P's and Q's (etiquettes) of backpacking

You may enjoy trekking alone, but its best advised to hike in a group. Why? As traveling in a group increases the safety of backpackers. While traveling in several 4-5 people many times one traveler interferes with the likes, dislikes, and satisfaction of another traveler. If you have been or think that this might happen with you as well go through our easy and good etiquette to resolve backpacker's interference. Please note that all situations below are hypothetical which may or may not relate with you:
  1. If you and your group happen to meet another group at a steep region then their might arise a situation where both the groups may not be able to decide which side of the trails is theirs and which is not. To make things simpler a rule has been established by the trekkers Association of Nepal where troop moving upward has the power to select their way which is commonly known as "Right to way." But this may be reversed if only two or smaller group is moving towards the uphill.
  2. While walking on a group, few move-in quicker pace than others. When the slow walker is forced to move quickly then their might arise a situation of the cold war between the bag packers. As a hiker, one must know that walking faster than natural raises the cause of injury as it increases fatigue and exhaustion. When two different types of a walker (slow and fast walker) are on the same team it is best advised to walk in accordance with the speed of slowest backpackers. If not, then there is a high rate for the divided members of the group to lose one another during their trip. Before heading to the trekking group if you happen to identify that your group has diversified walkers its best advised to hire a trekking expert to make sure everyone is safe.
  3. When two unknown teams of backpackers meet on trails or off-trails its best advised to exchange the good courtesy among each other such as smile, a well-sound hello, you can also start small talks with one another.
  4. Human nature differs accordingly, some trekkers like loud noise and sound but some don't. But while trekking across the areas where the mobility of wild and dangerous animals is high you must encourage loud noises as it reduces the chance of bumping into wildlife.
  5. Gently move the tree branches and twigs when on a walk to the forest and dense vegetative area as the hardwoods might smash the face of backpackers behind you.
  6. Do not camp on someone else private property without permission. It's better to stay on homestays and hotels across your trail routes.
