We organize teahouse trekking in Nepal. Teahouse trekking is probably the most popular style of trekking in Nepal where you stay and eat in local lodges, is of course much cheaper compare to organised camping trek. Local lodges in most of the popular trekking trails have now so improved. Lodges are more comfortable than tents, certainly if it snows or rain; in the addition, there is the large dining room-cum lounge, warmed by the stove where trekkers can while away the long evenings, making friends and chatting with fellow trekkers from around the world until dinner is served.
At almost all tea houses food is all the same. A typical breakfast menu at local tea houses in popular trekking trails may include pancakes served with peanut butter or honey; porridge; egg items (scrambled, boiled, fried, omelette); bread , or some varieties of the above. Similarly for a typical lunch and dinner, there will be about a similar set menu of dal bhat, pasta, pizza, soup, momos, other rice and noodle based dishes are served. Other than dal bhat, expect to find the following varieties for your lunch/dinner: soup, noodles, potato and a range of other items like pizza, pasta, spring rolls, momos, etc. Some places even serve desserts, especially in a well-established stop along the route. Food is relatively expensive on the trail because almost all commodities have to be brought up from town below.
Most lodges are very basic with small rooms, with mostly twin beds, but some with three or more beds. The rooms are spare: no additional furniture usually apart from the beds, no attached bath, and with wooden wall that are not soundproof. Blankets are generally provided but might not live up to your expectation of cleanliness. Most lodges now have electric lighting, usually solar powered. The rooms may be fitted with a dim low-watt bulb but the dining rooms are always well lighted.
