MAST Social Trekking Program in Brief

Makalu Arun Social Trek (MAST) prides itself as one of the best registered and government-licensed social trekking operators around Eastern Nepal. Through MAST we employ a local porter guide who knows the local geography, places, and people very well. He can speak a little English and can play the role of a liaison between you and MAST staff as well as the local people. He carries your 15-20kg luggage and leads your trek. He manages your overnight stay at local tea houses or homestays. There you have local food and drink as you like and sleep in a room in your sleeping bag and pay directly to your service providers for their service.

In our social trekking program operation, our itineraries are flexible and fully customizable to address your needs and interests. You enjoy trekking with light luggage at your own pace at a reasonable price. However, you may need to carry tents, food materials, and kitchen utensils for some places where there are no tea houses available for food and accommodation and overnight stay.
