Teahouse During the Trek
During the trek, we arrange accommodation in comfortable teahouses, also known as mountain lodges. The rooms in the teahouses are equipped with twin beds and basic furniture such as small tables or chairs. While blankets are generally provided, we recommend bringing your own sleeping bag for added comfort and warmth. The bathroom facilities in the teahouses are usually shared, and you can expect a combination of Asian-style squatting toilets or Western-style sitting toilets, depending on the teahouse.
While most teahouses have running water facilities, please note that hot water for showers may be available at an additional charge. However, it's important to keep in mind that the availability of hot showers can vary from teahouse to teahouse.
Meals on the Trek
During your trek with us, you will enjoy full board meals which include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The meals will be provided at the local lodges and teahouses along the trekking route. For breakfast and dinner, you will dine at the same teahouse or lodge where you are staying. The menu options will vary from place to place, allowing you to choose from a range of local and international dishes.
One of the most popular traditional meals in Nepal is Dal Bhat, which consists of rice and lentils. Additionally, you can expect a variety of other food items such as rice, seasonal vegetables, noodles, potatoes, and soups. Some teahouses even offer Western-style foods like pizza, pasta, and French fries to cater to different tastes.
For breakfast, you can typically find a variety of cereals, bread, and egg dishes available to start your day off right. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements or preferences, and we will do our best to accommodate them during your trek.
Safe Drinking Water
Along the trek, safe drinking water is very important while we are on high altitude journey. We recommend that one should drink at least 3-4 liters of water a day (this helps from de-hydration and altitude problems AMS). As long as possible we recommend you buy sealed packed mineral water and can buy it from every local shop and lodge. Remember! River, spring, and tap water are free, we should not recommend you directly drink it even water looks very clean, can't drink without adding water purification pills or filters then will be suitable to drink.
You can buy also boiled water from every lodge. Boiled water and sealed packed water cost $ 1-2 dollars per letter and its cost also depends on where we are from the sea level. So, you need to prepare and packed the extra cost for all the table drinks.
Health and Fitness Required
Health and physical fitness is the most important part of travel and in participating in trek and hiking. If you do not have previous trekking experience as required, you can start with a morning walking exercise or cycling for weeks or months before/after booking the trip with us, if you have previous trekking and climbing experience it will add a plus point on the trek chosen, most of the trek is non-technical effort walks.
The highest height gain on this trip is at 5,360m in Gokyo Ri Top above sea level. The walk involves lots of ups and down, walking through local villages, farmlands, terraces, and riverside as long as you have energy walking for 4- 6 hours a day, and if you are qualified for the trek but still require moderate health and fitness. We strongly advise travelers to consult their medical doctor before traveling and do a regular check-up and hand the report to us while booking a trip with us.

High Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness often known as acute mountain sickness (A.M.S.) in general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally at altitudes of over 3000 m. Most people will feel some effects of altitude, shortness of breath, and possibly light-headedness, which is fairly common. Acute mountain sickness is very different and normally involves a severe headache, sickness, and loss of awareness.
In almost every potential case there are enough warning signs to take appropriate action. When symptoms of altitude sickness develop, please tell your trekking guide, and he will advise you to deal with your problem. Generally, overexertion and dehydration contribute to altitude sickness. So drink at least 3-4 liters of water every day besides tea and coffee which act as diuretics.
