LODGE ACCOMMODATION & CAMPING

Accommodation is the basic thing while doing trekking or peak climbing. It is very much necessary to know where the overnight will spend before embarking on the trail. For spending overnight, we will stay in the Tea-houses which are also called ‘Bhatti’ in the Nepali language. And the entire tea house will provide typical Nepalese food and western cuisine also. A tea-house is the combination of a small lodge, and a restaurant with two small beds, mattresses, blankets, and cotton. Most of the trekking route of Nepal lies in the Himalayan part so it is so difficult to get a luxury restaurant gets in this route.

Most of the tea-house has hot water facilities for showers but they add an extra fee for it. It is just because most of the places in Nepal did not reach electricity and used wood to boil water. And in some places, you have to share a bathroom with other trekkers also because in the Himalayan part there will be no attached bathroom. During the time trekking, we also spend nights in tents. We will spend two days camping in high camp and base camp and each trekker will get a personal tent to spend overnight.

ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS

When people trek at the height of 2500 m from sea level then trekkers must face altitude sickness. While doing trekking in Nepal most of the trekking places lie at a high altitude so it is common to face altitude sickness. It is not a disease it is just a reaction of your body due to the lack of oxygen in the blood and tissue at a higher altitude. This is not dangerous till you don’t care about it. The higher altitude, the sorer your symptoms can be. This may happen to everybody even though they are physically healthy. It occurs at a high altitude when you are moving too quickly so in trekking you just walk 300 to 400m only in a day.

Altitude sickness is indeed a little threatening for adventurers as it may put a stop to all the fun and thrills. To avoid it while doing trekking we take a day’s rest in some places. In case someone catches it then they are immediately rushed down to the lower altitude and taken care of them. There are some prevention methods also which are walking slowly, avoiding alcohol and smoking, drinking a lot of boiled water, and drinking ginger tea and garlic soup at a higher altitude. Some symptoms like headache, dizziness, tiredness, loss of appetite, vomiting, and difficulty in breathing.

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Rabin Gurung

It was a trip we will always remember and be proud of. You need not worry about anything since Dhan (Sameer Gurung) and their group will arrange everything (i.e. Hotel, Food, transportation, a plane ticket to Lukla, etc.). The trekking was long and arduous yet our guide was very accommodating and conscious of us. He knows the place very well and will gladly tell you stories about it along the way. The whole trek was truly breathtaking. You won’t regret this trip! (Note: Try to reach viewing deck areas before sunrise and watch as the sun makes everything look spectacular!☺)

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Dhansingh Gurung

Dhansingh guided me on compressed Annapurna Circuit trek late last year and the experience far exceeded my expectations. Having someone who knew the route, language, local culture, weather conditions and wildlife intimately enabled me to relax and get the most from my trip. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt extremely well looked after and safe from the moment I arrived in Nepal right up until I left. I couldn’t recommend more highly, very professional service.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Dhansingh

We had a wonderful time on our trek. We did the 8 day ABC trek. The route is beautiful with lots of stunning vistas. Our guide Dhansingh was knowledgable and friendly and really looked after us. I would be happy to recommend this tour to anyone thinking of tackling ABC.

Everest Gokyo & Renjola Pass with Dhansigh

I first met Dhansingh in May of 2016 when we completed the Renjo La pass. I’ve now returned this summer of ’17 to explore with Dhansingh some areas of Annapurna. Dhansingh’s competency is the first rate, and he a very pleasant person with whom to spend time. I highly recommend Everest Trekking Routes.
