Annapurna Tea Houses

Annapurna Range

Nepali Tea Houses are remote lodges located in the mountain regions and offer very simple accommodation as you trek deeper into the interior. Scott Dunn will carry up better bedding and fluffy pillows, but do note the Tea Houses offer basic lodging.

At a Glance

  • Very simple, but the only accommodation in the higher regions of the Annapurna Range

  • All rooms will be private, but expect shared toilets

  • Breathtaking views as you walk higher into the mountains

  • Scott Dunn will send sherpas with fresh bedding and pillows to ensure it is as comfortable as possible

  • Fear not, most lodges will have a supply of beer for you to enjoy when you arrive after a long walk

Insider's View

Teahouses are further in the interior and so offer a great opportunity to connect with some of the local culture.

Description

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.

Accommodation

Rooms tend to offer twin bedded accommodation, and toilets are on the whole shared. Each lodge will have 10-15 rooms.

Facilities

The lodges will have a communal dining room where your dinner and breakfast will be served.

When to go

Nepal has a Monsoonal climate with four main seasons. Fall and spring are the two most favourable seasons for visiting Nepal. Fall (September to early December) brings in clear weather with sunny days and warm nights. Spring (March to May) with occasional rain falls. From June to September, is the monsoon season. Uncomfortable time to visit as the climate of Nepal at this time of year brings about hot weather and rain falls almost every day.
