Always Drink Safe Water
Well Nepal Treks suggest you to have purified drinking water. Basically, we can get mineral water bottles in lower places but we might not find it in higher ground. In such cases we suggest you to drink boiled water which might charge very tiny fee in tea houses. Bring chlorine tablets to purify water. Recommend yourself to use boiled rather than mineral water which will be helpful for protection of you and healthy environment.
About Recharging Your Batteries & Electronic Devices during Trek
Hydro electricity may not be available in every location, so solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like camera, batteries, iPod, I phone etc. Several Tea houses or lodges may charge small fee per hours for charging facilities for consumption of electricity or solar power. Well Nepal Treks recommends you to have adaptors and chargers before the trip since plugs are limited. In Nepal 220-240 volt power is used and sockets fit round and flat plugs.
Well Nepal Treks suggest you to use dustbins and do not throw anything into the fire. Carry a separate garbage carrier in the way and dispose it where dustbin facilities are available and promote the healthy environment.
Well Nepal Treks reminds you on your sufficiently protected and have travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, lost items, liabilities, injuries and medical treatment. Ensure the insurance covers all the activities in the Himalayas. Trekking Planner can offer the appropriate medical response based on your policy and insurance.
Washing and Toilet facilities
Every guest houses offer hot showers in bathroom or can be a bucket of hot water. But please note that at higher altitude there may not be enough hot water for all the trekkers. So you must limit the use of hot water unless the water is solar heated or firewood for the ecological reason. Every lodge has some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. Don’t feel hesitated to get warm bowl of water If the water frozen.
Toilets here are mainly Asian squat style. Basically toilets are outside your room and vary in how clean they are. You should not throw toilet paper in the toilet hole rather you should use rubbish bin that is kept inside the toilet.
On this trekking route local people have built tea houses lodge with food and beverage facilities. A simple room usually has two narrow beds. Note that while staying in the tea houses you will see the charming local people with their good hospitality services so be friendly in every way possible.
Extra Advice from Well Nepal Treks
You may see some beautiful, sweet children and poor ones that might make you to distribute balloons, chocolates, money and other stuffs. But, Well Nepal Trekssuggest you better not to do so because it directly encourages them towards beggary and ask to every trekker which is also a sign of negative practice.
While on trekking, don’t forget to keep your valuables safe and secure. Do not left anything anywhere. Ensure that you lock your door when you leave your room and do not hang anything’s outside at night. We strongly recommend you to do double check always and anywhere possible.
