Eating & Drinking facilities during the trek
Breakfast is included during the trip and all meals are included while camping and the trek. On a trek, the breakfast will be a set on the menu. Any additional things that are not included in your trip. If you are interested to order something then you should be ordered and paid by yourself. We do not include lunch and dinner in the tea-houses during the trek.
Although meats also available in the tea houses and lodges, we advise against eating it on the trek because for stamina. The meat has often been carried in the heat from lower altitudes for several days before reaching the lodges and can cause stomach upsets or illness. Germs can also be spread by handling dirty money - we recommend using hand sanitizer.
If you buy imported food and drink while on the trek you will spend more than the suggested amount.
We strongly recommend you do not buy any bottled of water on trek as this contributes to the growing problem of plastic pollution in especially Nepal’s trekking area’s environment.
All tea houses will be managed for you cold water free of cost if requested. Although this should be not drunk untreated, we recommend you that bring the reusable bottle.
Tea houses also sell the boiled water for approximately Npr.150 to 300 per liter (the price will be increased when you doing higher trek) which should not require treating. This is also perfect for the bedtime refill as double up as hot water. While the camping we provide the boiled water for our clients.

Snows will be expected on any departure, usually at the higher altitudes. The trek will be starting early (usually about 2 am) in the knight and will be extremely cold time. Mostly it is net and clean on summit day the Himalayas does occasionally get high winds. You need to be equipped for temperatures will be low as minus 25ºC plus wind chill on summit day.

This is a Tough trek around the Himalayas. It is normally 9days to 16 days trekking trip and full of porterage throughout. The maximum altitude is 6,189m and the average is 3,680m. There are some stone steep ascents and descents and some narrow trails during the trek. As this trek also ascends to very high altitudes. Participants should be confident secure of their physical and they must have previous experience of trekking at high altitude and in snow cover Himalayas.
We do not recommend compulsory to participate in the climb, anyone who can have previous ice ax and crampon experience about the climb and know how to use the jumar and abseiling device. There will be some briefing about the equipment and practice sessions for rope use, ice ax, crampon, and harness use, abseiling and crevasse rescue. For safety first is compulsory to participate in these sessions (aria). If you do not take part the leader and climbing Sherpas will not allow you to take part in the mountaineering.
This mountaineering is technically harder than Mera Peak, for those people who are necessary have an experience about this expedition is within the reach of their first Himalayan summit. The climb requires strong lungs and a great deal of high power,- it is great alpine and starts with some rocky scrambling to a glacier area. We cross the glacier by the roped up and then come to a 200m steep 35 to 45-degree headwall, which leads to a 20m summit ridge. We will rope up to cross the glacier area and you will have started again walking with an ice ax, crampon and plastics boots. There are fixed ropes up the headwall and along the summit ridge. On the ascent, you will have to use a jumar and on the descent, you will have to use an abseil device.
Please, be aware that high altitude will be a significant effect on your physical state. It is important that you take heed with the leader's advice and decisions at all times during the climb. The leaders are extremely trained in first aid and are well aware of AMS symptoms on high attitude and will keep a close eye on the group. We ask you to refer to the altitude warning within the Trip advice.
The climb itself is not recommended for any person with a fear of heights or vertigo and the main trail itself crosses three modern suspension bridges over the rivers and valleys - all of these have mesh sides but some are quite long and high
