However, we generally use the following kind of accommodations:
Hotels & Lodges
While staying in major cities and towns, we make use of the best hotels with classic and comfortable amenities and services. Ambiance and comfort, we feel is a vital component for the rejuvenation of a traveler’s weary soul. These luxury hotels are booked on a Bed & Breakfast basis. However, we must be forthright about the quality of these individual hotels and lodges as they vary in accordance with the remoteness and isolation of the properties. Still, we strive to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
On the major trekking routes in Nepal, locals have ingeniously modified, and in some cases, extended their homes into Tea House Lodges that provide comfort, food, and services that are not normally anticipated in such areas. Our stay at such tea house lodges will be inclusive of twin-bedded rooms, all meals, and additional snacks. We will also provide sleeping bags, hot water bottles, and bed tea. You will be directly contributing to the local community by your stay at such lodges and also intermingling with the local populace and their culture.
In the more popular Everest and Annapurna regions of Nepal, we have tailored treks for those who choose to explore the Himalayas in style and comfort. All the lodges on this trek offer en suite facilities, running hot and cold water, mouth-watering cuisine and elegant local style and offer happy tours, electric blankets and soaking up in hot tubs while taking in the panoramic Himalayan peaks and scenery!

You are always at liberty to extend your holiday and upgrade your stay and itinerary if you like; only requisite is your time and adjustments to your flight back home schedules. Whether it is the end of the holiday, sightseeing, an extra night at the hotel, warm up treks, or different adventure or cultural activities. You can even upgrade your hotels in the city.
