During this holiday the group will spend 2 nights in Kathmandu at a centrally-located tourist-class hotel with outdoor swimming pool. There are also 3 nights at a 3 star standard Lakeside hotel in Pokhara and 2 nights at a hotel in Chitwan.
Whilst on trek there are 3 nights in lodges/tea houses. All accommodation is on a twin sharing basis, although some lodges only dormitory beds are available. The Nepalese trekking lodges also known as 'tea-houses' are simple, friendly and atmospheric. As they are far from the nearest road is it not surprising that they are simple establishments as everything must be carried up by porters or animals. Mostly these lodges have heated dining areas which are often attractively decorated. Accommodation is basic in unheated rooms with wooden beds and foam mattress. You will need a sleeping bag. The lodges have shared washing and toilet facilities. Some lodges have solar powered showers (charged at $2 - $3 per shower) and battery charging facilities (also charged at a rate per hour). Staying at the lodges is a great way to meet fellow hikers and the locals.
You will also have 1 night camping on the beach of the river whilst rafting. Usually 2 people will usually share a 3-person tent. Of course, children can share a tent with their parents if required.
Usually in the hotels children of 11yrs and under will share with parents in a triple for a family of 3 or a double with an extendable couch for a family of 4. Children over 12 yrs will share with parents in a triple for a family of 3, or have 2 rooms for a family of 4. We will do everything to ensure that you are happy with your rooming allocation.
Additional nights are available at the beginning and end of the holiday. Details of your first night's hotel together with an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.
