On the tea house trek, you can expect to get mostly continental and local foods, especially Dalbhat "Dalbhat Power 24 Hours", ordered from the menus. In some tea houses, you can also get Tibetan, Chinese, Nepalese, and even Indian and Italian dishes. The meal is good and always enjoyed by the hungry trekkers. In higher altitudes, you get fewer varieties than in the lower area. Nepal Mother House Treks provide you with three meals each day with a cup of tea or coffee. When possible we try to provide you with fresh vegetables from the village and fresh fruits. During the high-altitude treks like the Everest base camp, we advise you not to drink alcohol (you can get beer and whisky even in mountains) until reaching your destination. It may increase the chances of altitude sickness.

You are allowed to choose the food you like but it is wiser not to order different dishes for each people as cooking so many dishes takes a long time and a waste of fuel. Some Tea house does not have sufficient ovens and maybe they have only one cook. Making a combined order saves time, especially during lunchtime. You can buy bottled water in the mountains but we suggest you bring water purifiers like iodine or any water purification tools which will help to reduce the pollution in the mountains. For the camping trek, we provide you with multi-course dishes from starters to deserts by professional cooks. A full set of facilities including kitchen and dining tents, tables, and chairs are provided during organizing a trek.
