Accomodation & meal

ACCOMMODATION

In a standard category hotel (base: double room) in Kathmandu and Pokhara, during the rest of the trip in a tent (3-person tents for 2 people) or in a lodge depending on the trip. The lodges in Nepal are very comfortable random. In general, conditions are quite good around the Annapurnas and the Everest region. On the other hand, in Mustang, in the Manaslu,  Tsum valley, and in the region of Kangchanjung or Makalu, they can be very rudimentary to the point of being a dormitory sometimes even a kitchen. lodges can look like a refuge or sometimes a bed and breakfast from home. Most of the time it is a family house with double, triple, or dormitory rooms. Toilets and showers are always separate.

MEAL

In the cities, many restaurants allow us to discover the typical local cuisine. Meat is scarce in the high mountain, the Nepalese are generally vegetarians. The basic ingredients are rice, pasta, lentils, potatoes, vegetables. Snacks are included during the trek (cereal bars, dried fruits, etc.).

For camping trek accommodation: during the trek, breakfasts and evening meals are prepared by the kitchen team. They are taken under the mess tent. Depending on the profile of the stages (length of the day’s walk and/or presence of water), midday snacks will be served hot or cold in the form of picnics.

For tea house trek accommodation: meals are prepared by the cooks of the lodge and are taken in the dining room. Here is a typical one-day menu:

  • breakfast: eggs, toast or chapati, or Tibetan bread or pancakes, or pancakes, butter/jam, tea or coffee
  • lunch: the main course, tea or coffee.
  • dinner: soup, main course, fruit (fresh or canned), tea or coffee

NB: Hindus and Buddhists are most often vegetarians. We, therefore, eat very little meat or fish. The dishes are pasta, rice, potatoes, lentils, etc.

DRINKS: during the trek, tea is served with meals (two cups of tea per meal). Additional cups of tea and other beverages, including mineral water, are the responsibility of the participants. You can fill your gourds with water in the lodges, but it is essential to treat them with purifying tablets. Avoid buying plastic bottles.

      June 25, 2022

      Alpinist club, company is one of the top companies in the Himalayas. I’ve been on 2 different adventures with them chulu west and Lobuche peak. They are professional and very nice. My 1st adventure was tack to Chulu west and Thorong la pass which is very successful. Me and my wife went in 2018 and had a great time. They have the best hotel to stay with the best views in every night on trek. They treat you like family the whole time. 2021 / October I recently went in Everest base camp and Lobuche peak with my friends. We did the adventure very safely. We complete base camp and Lobuche. Even Lobuche peak is very difficult and technical. There guide are very well known about the route and place.

      Everest base camp with Lobuche peak climbing

      Rated 5 out of 5
      June 25, 2022

      Mr ngima chhechhi Sherpa was our mountain guide for this everest base camp and lobuche pe climbing. He is amazing and Communication was very easy. He is very professional guide and made sure that we were comfortable peak climbing and base camp trek . We were group of 5 and we all are above 45 year old. Our guide and Sherpa team made sure that we were ok upon landing at kala patthar and base camp . We spent about 15-20minutes in kalapatter before heading to the Everest base camp. The views of Everest and other peak was amazing from there. The views were spectacular and it was worth every single penny we paid for this trip. We even made aa top of Lobuche peak (6119m) which was in itself an amazing experience. We never felt rushed as we took our time walking around in some of our pitstops especially after breakfast. Really it was very good for to travel with Ngima chhechi Sherpa and his team from Alpinist club.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      AUTUMN

      It is an excellent time for tourism and trekking, although nighttime temperatures can be cold, especially in the Everest region. During the months of October and November, the sky is normally a deep blue and the sun is often bright. Mountain views are mostly crystalline and daytime temperatures pleasant. September – November. October is the busiest month

      SPRING

      From March to May, the days are sunny and the temperatures are increasingly mild. The view of the mountains worsens as the monsoon approaches, but it is also the time of flowering for the magnificent rhododendrons, especially in the Annapurna region and Manaslu region from mid of may and end of April.  Everest region gets extremely busy with mountaineering expedition teams.

      We do not recommend traveling to the Everest region during the month of June, July, or August due to heavy rainfall in Nepal during the Monsoon season.

      SUMMER

      In June and July, the humid air masses of the Bay of Bengal collide and rise on the Himalayas. Moisture in the air cools and falls as rain — the monsoon. Its effects are uneven across Nepal, and some regions are less affected. The monsoon loses its intensity as it moves from the southeast to the northwest; north of the Annapurna in the areas of Manang, Naar, Phu, Dolpo, and Mustang the effect of the monsoon is minor. Elsewhere, the paths can be slippery with mud and are often infested with leeches.

      WINTER

      Heavy snowfall sometimes makes high-altitude passes impassable. Trekking is still possible, but preferably at altitudes below 4000m because of the cold. The weather is very clear and the mountain visibility is excellent.
