During this trip the group will spend 3 nights in Kathmandu at a centrally-located tourist-class hotel. Accommodation at this hotel is twin-sharing. If you are travelling by yourself you will be paired up with another single client of the same sex. For the 3 hotel nights in Kathmandu single rooms are available at supplementary cost and additional nights can be booked. For hotel prices and single supplement costs please refer to the dates and prices page of the trip on our website. Hotels are subject to availability and prices may vary. Whilst on trek there are 14 nights in basic lodges. It is important to be aware that many of these lodges are of a much lower standard than those in more popular regions, such as the Khumbu. There is usually a common room on the ground floor where the cooking is carried out and where you will eat your meals. This is usually heated by a wood-burning stove. There are simple, shared washing and toilet facilities and usually no shower. Accommodation at these lodges is in simple, unheated dormitory rooms with wooden beds and foam mattresses and no segregation between the sexes. Electricity is not dependable and there is often no possibility of charging batteries. You will need a sleeping bag. Single room occupancy at these lodges is not an option.
