Throughout this trek we make use of Teahouses. Teahouses vary in style and quality dependant on their location. Most of them have a communal room with several bedrooms upstairs or outside in small annexes. Most have shared toilet facilities; some have showers although there is normally a small fee to pay for their use. The communal room is generally heated using a wood burning stove, but the bedrooms are mainly unheated.

Electricity is available at most of the teahouses during the early part of the trek however as we gain height this resource becomes increasingly scarce. We recommend you take some form of battery pack with which to charge your devices and that you keep all electrical items warm at night ideally by keeping them inside your sleeping bag or by wrapping them in a warm jacket.

We suggest you change sufficient cash in Kathmandu to get you through the trek as there are no money changing facilities on the trail or in the Teahouses. Your local guide or your Monkey Mountaineering leader can advise on this.
