If your heart is set on getting right into the heart of the Himalayan mountains, then you will have to spend a few nights in a traditional Nepalese tea houses. The more comfortable lodges cease to exist past the village of Ghandruk, and as such if you are traveling onto Annapurna Base Camp, these simple tea houses are the only option. Your sherpas will always know the best option in each village and will know the owners personally, so you will be well looked after.
We will of course make them as comfortable as possible, and your sherpas will carry up fresh bedding and fluffy pillows to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The lodges themselves will offer private rooms, often with shared toilets.
In the evening, guests will gather in the main dining room by the fire for dinner. As a Scott Dunn guest, your sherpas will have packed away imported cheeses, salami and snacks to supplement the rather simple menu options.The advantage of continuing into the heart of the mountains is that the views just get better and better, and less trekkers make it this far, and as such the experience is hard to beat.
Rooms tend to offer twin bedded accommodation, and toilets are on the whole shared. Each lodge will have 10-15 rooms.
The lodges will have a communal dining room where your dinner and breakfast will be served.
