All meals are included from dinner on day 1 to breakfast on day 14. While staying in Kathmandu meals will be taken in the hotel or at a local restaurant. On trek the group will take their meals at lodges. Normally this will be a set meal for the whole group. Boiled or purified water is available at all the lodges we stay at. Bottled water is also available to purchase (at additional cost) but we do not recommend this on grounds of environmental care.
Whilst on trek there are 10 nights in lodges/tea houses. All accommodation is on a twin sharing basis (note that in some lodges only dormitory beds may be available). If you are travelling by yourself you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. It is not possible to arrange single accommodation in lodges. 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.
The group will also spend 3 nights in Kathmandu at a centrally-located tourist-class hotel with outdoor swimming pool. We can make rooming arrangements to suit families throughout the holiday, with children sharing with parents where necessary.
Please contact the KE office if you would like to arrange family rooms or any extra nights. Hotels are subject to availability and prices may vary.
