Short description of overnight stays on the trekking trips in Nepal
It is written about overnight stays in tea houses, in lodges, in tents and Homestays.
Tea houses in Nepal
Nepal’s Tea House Trek – Everest, Manaslu and Annapurna
The tea houses (trekking lodges) are Nepal’s classic accommodation for trekking trips in the mountains. They are a kind of simple mountain hotels whose standard fluctuates – but in general they are cozy forms of our host families in Nepal’s villages. And remember it now – the tea houses can not be compared to hotels, take them for what they are – luxury will never be.
In the very upper areas they are simpler than in the villages far down but they are generally neat and enormously cozy. Common to them is that it is the way you live and hike in Nepal – and then it is a fun and exciting local experience.
We usually live in a double room with two simple beds. The tea houses have both shared bedrooms and single, double and triple rooms. We only use shared bedrooms, in the extremely rare cases where the separate rooms are impossible.
According to sunglassestracker, the tea houses have a restaurant, their dining room where the meals are served. The food is simple, good and healthy. You order from menu cards and your stomach gets full for very little money. Lunch is also eaten at the tea house, while you are on the day’s stage. Kipling Travel pays for your room, while you are responsible for the payment of your food (calculate DKK 100-250 per day depending on what you eat).
At some tea houses you can buy yourself for lighting for 2-300 rs. In addition, it is possible to buy a (simple) bath, however, we think you should ask if the water is heated via solar heating, as we as travelers should not be involved in more deforestation, a very necessary. Some tea houses charge for electric charging and wifi (where possible).
The food is not included in the tea houses you order according to their menu.
All in all, it is fantastically cozy to stay at Nepal’s glorious tea houses.
Nepal Tea House trek
Tea houses in Nepal – Kanchenjunga and Makalu
In recent years, tea houses have been developed on the routes to Kanchenjunga, Makalu and Nar & Phu, so that we can spend the night under quite good local conditions. Of course, Kipling Travel supports the local people who have opened their “bhattis” – simple accommodations. The tea houses in the new areas are rapidly getting better and better, but can not even compete with Everest and Annapurna yet. Thus, one should not compare the tea houses in the “new areas” with the areas that have had lodges for 30 years, where many are actually small hotels.
But it is a good development that makes Kanchenjunga already a new classic among Nepal’s trekking routes. If there are bottlenecks and bed shortages along the way, we have a few extra tents with us, so that everyone is guaranteed a proper night on the trekking trip.
The food is simple but good and healthy. D u must calculate that it is largely only possible to eat ex. dalbhat, nepals nationalret på tehusene. It’s probably the very best food to go on, but some find it a bit one-sided and just simple enough. This is how it is when you want to get away from the tourist routes. Lunch is also eaten at the tea house, while you are on the day’s stage. Kipling Travel pays for your room, while you are responsible for the payment of your food (calculate DKK 100-200 per day depending on what you eat).
Welcome far from the highway – it requires some sacrifice, but is simply amazing.
Nepal comfort lodges
Comfort Trekking Lodges on Everest and Annapurna
The Everest and Annapurna areas have two options for comfort trekking. At Everest, it’s a combination of Everest Summit Lodges and Yeti’s Mountain Home. By using a combination of the lodge chains, we achieve the best of both worlds and thus have a better height habituation than by using Summit Lodges alone, where Namche is not experienced or at Yeti Mountain Home, where other bidders are not experienced.
At Annapurna we use Annapurna Comfort Lodges located south of the big mountains in green and lush landscapes with fantastic views of the Annapurna Mountains.
Common to the so-called luxury Lodges, rather comfort lodges, is that they are very neat and beautiful with good facilities along the way and thus a significant upgrade from normal tea houses.
The rooms are real double rooms with private shower and toilet and there is no need for a sleeping bag or anything else on the trekking trip.
The conditions and quality are clearly the best, they are in every way a new standard for mountain nights on Nepal’s trekking and hiking.
