What's not included
Hotels, Lodges & River Camp
4 nights hotels, 5 nights mountain lodges/hotels, 2 nights jungle lodge and 1 night fixed riverside camp, all at a comfortable standard and with en suite facilities.
The lodges used on this trek are the most luxurious in the region. All rooms are twin-bedded and are decorated in a traditional Nepalese Gurung-style, local to the region. All rooms have en suite bathrooms with solar showers, flush toilets and electricity. There is a communal room where meals are taken, which has a huge cosy fireplace and a bar. Happy hour at the bar runs from 6 to 7pm. During this time alcoholic beverages are served on a complimentary basis (please notes happy hour is on trek and at the raft camp only). In short, these lodges offer a far superior service and level of comfort compared to the teahouses used on other Himalayan treks.
Single rooms are not available whilst on the trek as the lodges are small and have a limited number of rooms. Single rooms are available for six nights only (in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan) and may be requested in advance for a supplement of from GBP370 (in 2015) or from GBP470 (in 2016), subject to availability.
