During ABC Short Trek, we assure you to make you feel homely with the warm hospitality of the local people. The higher elevation you get, the lodging facility declines a bit as in mountain regions it's difficult to provide all facilities like in Pokhara and Kathmandu city. In most of the teahouses, you'll have a squat toilet system and a twin-sharing room with mattresses, blanket and pillows will be available. We can also manage single rooms on request, but it will cost some extra charges. We'll stay in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara.
The trek will take you to the high elevations so your body needs enough protein, carbohydrate, nutrition for the body to hike on such high Himalayan trails. You'll find a very convenient meal in teahouses during this trek, not like that in cities, but we make sure you get the best supplements through your complete trek. The food includes varieties of dishes like typical Nepali dishes (Dal, Bhat & Tarkari), Tibetan Bread, Sandwiches, Momos (dumplings), Macaroni, Various Soups items, Sherpa Stew, Steaks, Tenduk, Spaghetti Noodles, and other dishes from the menu.
