Foods on the trek

In a lodge to lodge (tea house ) trek you can expect to get mostly continental and local foods and can choose it from the a la carte menus. You can also get some Tibetan , Chinese , Nepalese and even Indian and Italian dishes on the tea houses. The food is good and well enjoyed by the trekkers. In higher altitudes near the base camps of the mountains, you get less varieties than in the lower altitudes. We provide three meals with tea or coffee. Wherever possible we try to offer you fresh vegetables from the village , fresh fruits etc. If you are doing high altitude treks like the Everest base camp , do not consume alcohols ( you get beers and whisky even in mountains) until you reach your destination. Alcohol consumption may increase the chances of altitude sickness. You are allowed to choose the food you like but it is wiser not to order different dishes for each persons as cooking so many dishes takes a long time. Some lodges do not have many ovens and may be they have only one cook. Making a combined order saves time , specially in lunch . You can buy bottled water in the mountains but we suggest you to bring water purifiers like iodine and avoid bottled water. Water bottles are major source of pollution in the mountains.

If you are in a camping trek we provide you multi course dishes from starters to deserts . We have excellent cooks to prepare hot and delicious meals. A full set of facilities including kitchen and dining tents , tables and chairs are provided.
