During this trip the group will spend 4 nights in Kathmandu at a centrally-located tourist-class hotel. Whilst on trek there are 13 nights staying in standard 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 hot 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 the other people taking part in the race. There are no lodges at Everest Base Camp and here we will camp for 2 nights. We use good quality three-person mountain tents (two people to each tent) and there will also be a dining tent and toilet tents. A camp kitchen and cook will provide our meals and hot water fpr washing. All accommodation is on a twin sharing basis. 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 for a supplementary cost. Additional hotel nights in Kathmandu are also available. 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.
