But if they choose tea house trekking, the foods, accommodation and drinking water are supplied by the guest house where you stay. We can have the food according to our interest in the items mentioned in the menu. Accommodation in the mountain will be normal but in some facilitates areas, we get better accommodation.

Regarding the currency, we recommend you to have Nepali Currency while trekking in the mountain. However, some of the restaurants, hotels, and shops accept USD and Euro too.
We suggest you not to wear unnecessarily tight pants, shorts, t-shirt and trousers during your trekking in the mountain. It is supposed to be unacceptable to the people of the remote countryside who are not used to globalized fashions.
Carry a comfortable backpack which contains your personal belongings including a water bottle. Put on sunglasses, wear sunblock, wear light cotton clothes during March and April while trekking in the daytime but in the morning and evening, the weather tends to be colder and windy, So prepare accordingly. Drink plenty of water, hot soups and other stamina generating food items. Wear a comfortable hiking or trekking boots. Better carry a pair of extra shoes ( any types but warm and comfortable enough).
