Things to Know
Food on Trip
There are many varieties of western and Asian foods dishes or a mixture of both in all the major trekking and tour destination in Nepal. During your stay in city Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan etc. You could choose a food from the menu such as Nepali food, Indian food, and western food as you wish. During a trek you can expect 3 full meals a day as well as regular tea and coffee breaks on both tea-house style or camping treks where food is freshly prepared daily. During our tea-house trek we offer a selection of tea-houses where you could get fresh food. Most teahouses cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare food. But most tea-houses offers pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, dhal bhat, bread, soups, fresh vegetables and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. We also are familiar with providing interesting vegetarian meals and able to adjust to meet your requirements, for example cooking Asian dishes less spicy for children. In many larger villages on trekking you may find some meals with meat on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps.
In a lodge to lodge (tea house) trek you can expect to get mostly local foods and can choose it from the 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 varietyof the food item 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. You are allowed to choose the food you like but it is wiser not to order different dishes for each person 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,especially 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. In any case, you will have similar fare to teahouses, except that along the way we may buy some fresh local produce such as fish, chicken or cheese to supplement the supplies. And the cost of all the food we prepare is included in the price of the camping treks – you can eat food as much as you like. Whichever option you choose, you can be assured that the food is fresh, nutritious and tasty. We give the high priority to the health of our guests; we provide a hygienic food during our camping trek. Our cooks are well trained and very experienced at preparing both western and eastern dishes.
