Brief regarding Accommodation at Mountain Tea House?

  2. Food: Tea houses also serve meals, and the menu usually includes a variety of local and international dishes. It’s recommended to try the local cuisine, as it is often freshly prepared and can be a unique experience.
  3. Advance Reservation:  After confirming your trip with Mercy Holidays make your reservation according to your travel itinerary.
  4. Altitude Considerations: As you ascend to higher altitudes, the facilities may become more basic, and heating may be limited. Be prepared for colder temperatures, and make sure to have appropriate gear, including a warm sleeping bag.
  5. Cultural Etiquette: Respect the local culture and customs. Remove your shoes before entering common areas, and be mindful of local traditions. It’s also a good idea to greet the locals with a “Namaste.”
  6. Water and Sanitation: Tea houses may have shared bathroom facilities, and hot showers may be available for an additional cost. It’s advisable to carry a refillable water bottle and use water purification methods to ensure safe drinking water.
  7. Electricity and Charging: Electricity may be available in the tea houses, but it’s not guaranteed. Charging electronic devices may incur an extra cost, and it’s wise to carry a portable charger or a power bank.
  8. Tipping: Tipping is customary in Nepal. It’s a way to show appreciation for the services provided. While there isn’t a fixed amount, a general guideline is to tip around 200 Nepali Rupees. 

Overall, staying in tea houses is a unique and immersive experience that allows you to connect with the local culture and enjoy the stunning landscapes of the Himalayas. Always check the latest information and conditions before embarking on a trek, and be prepared for the challenges of trekking at high altitudes
