Food & Equipment

Our chefs and kitchen staff routinely produce a mouth-watering spread of tasty, hygienically cooked dishes at every meal. While trekking, a nutritious and tasty packed lunch is provided. We offer Local, Chinese and Continental cuisines and use locally purchased produce. Our meals are carefully designed to be balanced, nutritious and tasty. The emphasis is on a high carbohydrate and largely vegetarian diet, which we have found is more easily digested in the mountains, especially at higher altitudes. We accommodate a wide variety of dietary preferences and have even served gluten free food on occasion. Meal helpings are generous and the drinks and snacks are always plentiful. We provide you with ample safe drinking water throughout a trip – the water is collected from known clean sources and is then boiled, cooled and a dash of iodine added at times as a precautionary measures.

We use the highest standard of equipment on all our trips. On our expeditions trips we use only UIAA / CE tested climbing equipment. All our equipment undergoes regular preventive maintenance. On treks we offer spacious three-men dome tents on twin- sharing basis so that you have enough personal space along with your equipment. You will be provided with foam mattresses inside the tents to sleep on. All trekking trips include toilet tents (dry pit), spacious kitchen tent and a dining tent with tables and camp stools. An exhaustive first aid kit is always carried by the trip leader. With large groups the front and the rear are always covered by our team members equipped with Walkie-Talkie radios.

Responsible Travel

Travelling through a fragile natural & social ecosystem such as the Himalayas carries with it an important responsibility. Nanda outdoor & retreats completely believes in the “take only memories, leave only footprints” philosophy and is very particular about leaving campsites & trails cleaner than we find them. We constantly educate our staff, our customers and local people on best eco-friendly practices to preserve the environment. On the social responsibility side, Nanda Outdoor & Retreats employs local people as guides, cooks and porters and delivers training to several more as a contribution to the adventure tourism industry. We purchase local produce wherever we can – such as vegetables, fruit and food grains. We aim to give something back to the people of the region we work in.
