Whilst on trek there are 13 nights in lodges/tea houses. 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. The lodges on the Manaslu circuit are not as well developed as those in the more popular Everest and Annapurna regions but they are a step up from camping. Often these lodges have heated dining areas which are sometimes attractively decorated depending on the creativity and resources of the owner. 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 which are sometimes located in separate buildings. 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. At the highest overnight stops prior to crossing the Larkya La, lodge facilities are limited and we may opt to camp on one or two nights. The group will also spend 3 nights in Kathmandu at a centrally-located tourist-class hotel. 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. Single accommodation can be arranged for a supplementary cost. A single supplement guarantees single rooms for the nights in Kathmandu and we will do our best to secure single accommodation in the lodges. However, single accommodation in lodges cannot be booked in advance and therefore cannot be guaranteed for all nights. 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.
