3.Accommodation in hotel lodges

Nepal's Accommodation in Trekking areas is slowly moving to mini urbanization process. The National Parks and Conservation Projects are working to enhance the living standard compared to the clean and hygienic society. You will find cottage types of lodges with separate and dormitory beds rooms in every shelter with improving toilets, hot shower and sunroom with clean and wooden dining table with the big metal chimney on the middle of Dining Room to have the fire while in the evening burning fallen woods below 3500m. and the Yak Dungs over 3500m.

There have been many changes along popular trekking routes over the past few years, especially since the barrage of bestsellers about the 1996 Everest drama, which caused a renewed interest, especially in the Solu Khumbu region. Since then many new lodges have been built along all trekking paths, offering a variety of amenities.

Generally, the lodges in the trekking region are more basic. Rooms tend to be small, unheated wooden boxes with two beds, and only the more upscale versions offer electric lights fed by solar panels. Toilets are often squat-style wooden outhouses. Toilet paper is available for purchase everywhere.

Many lodges offer hot showers for a price, ranging from Rs.150 to Rs.300 ($2.20-$4), depending on the remoteness of the area. Be prepared to skip baths for several days, simply because it will be too cold to even consider taking off your clothes, and keep in mind that you are not the only one. The occasional luxury of a shower will seem like bliss once you reach lower altitudes again.

In busy towns, like Lukla, Namche Bazar, Khumjung, and Lobuche, (Everest region) you will also find luxury accommodations with western toilets, hot showers, satellite TV, heated rooms, and extensive menu options. Even though they are a little more expensive, they are still very cheap by western standards and can provide a welcome break from "roughing it" in tents or bare-bones lodges along the way.

4. 3 times meals BF, LN, DN in same lodges every day.

All our meals will be at teahouses and, although the food is usually plentiful and delicious, you should be aware that the menu is not normally extensive.

However, the menus in all lodges offer a surprising variety of foods. Most lodge owners have learned about western food preferences and offer items such as pizza, lasagna, muesli, sandwiches and even burgers. If you wish, we provide you with an opportunity to watch a lodge kitchen in action, producing an enormous number and variety of meals on a single wood-burning stove. You will definitely gain an appreciation for the effort that goes into satisfying the appetites of tourists from all over the world. But keep in mind that a lot of the ingredients for such "exotic" foods have to be carried on porters’ backs, and the further you get from original food supplies, the higher the price tag will be on some of these items.

We, Nepalese eat a meal of Dhal Bhaat (rice with lentil soup, curry, and pickles) twice daily. The ingredients vary according to local and seasonal availability, but vegetarian options are the norm. Another cheap popular local dish is the ubiquitous instant noodle soup, enhanced by local vegetables, or meat or egg, depending on availability. Eating Nepali-style will provide you with a truly local experience, guarantees fresh ingredients everywhere, and rules out disappointments. Let’s face it: Lasagna Himalaya-style will not be the true Italian version you may be accustomed to.

The Kitchens staffs you will find are trained for cooking, and guest relation, The foods will be served with according to the Lodge Management Committee approved Menu system providing Nepalese, Indian, Chinese and Continental western foods. Beers, Whisky western and Nepalese, Snickers, Mar Bars, Coca-Cola, Mineral water, Cereals and many others essentials foods will be available in every lodge. And do not forget of Garlic and RARA noodles soups will make you smelly going up to avoid high altitude sickness. For a quick fix: Tea is available everywhere and Nepali biscuits are cheap, delicious and provide a great energy boost for long uphill climbs.

Most teahouses offer a variety of rice and noodle dishes, as well as soup and seasonal vegetables. A variety of cereals, bread and egg dishes are generally available for breakfast. There will also be plenty of snacks available such as biscuits, chocolate, and soft drinks and in some areas, you will find fresh fruit in season.

Our trip to Nepal such a memorable one

I am part of a group of 4 girls who coordinated with Jagat for our 'mini' version of the Annapurna Circuit in early September 2017. We wanted to do the circuit badly but did not have enough time. Jagat and his team came up with a customized itinerary for us to start the trek from Jagat and end at Jomsom which we then flew to Pokhara to take a bus back to Kathmandu. The whole itinerary was very flexible and day to day arrangements can be altered by just communicating with our guide, Gopi. He will come up with the best plan to accommodate our wants and needs. 

From the moment we landed at the airport in Kathmandu to the moment we flew out of Nepal, everything was extremely well taken care of by Jagat and his team. Our guide, Gopi and porters, Raju and Tej (whom we call Dada) were like family to us during the entire trek. They were always checking on us to see if we have enough to eat, enough drinking water or can we cope with the trek. They even offered to carry our day packs when they saw us struggling. In fact, I think at most times, if not all, our interests were placed above theirs. They will go all the way out just to help you if there is anything you need at all on the trek. 

I don't think we'll be able to find another more patient, caring, trustworthy and detailed team of guides and porters. It was our pleasure to be able to trek with them. They had made our trip to Nepal such a memorable one that all of us didn't want the trip to end. Thank you for the great hospitality. I really look forward to visiting and trekking in Nepal again.

I would readily recommend Jagat and his team to anyone planning to trek in Nepal.

Love from Malaysia,

This was my third trip to Nepal and most enjoyable.

I recently had the great pleasure of climbing Island Peak in the Khumbu, Nepal. Jagat Lama was a passionate and dependable resource for trekking and mountaineering in Nepal. He was on the spot as far as preparation for the trip. This was my third trip to Nepal and most enjoyable. Hiring a light and independent team allowed for a cost-effective, flexible and efficient way to climb in Nepal. His assistance was with me from the airport arrival through to departure. He took care of my every need and allowed me to focus on my goal of the summit of Island Peak. My climbing guide, his brother Lal, was competent, caring and successful. I left Nepal with new friendships. I readily endorse his services and would encourage anybody to go with the Independent Trekking Guides. They are honest, caring and willing to make your holiday the most memorable you have ever had. Please, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my experiences in Nepal.
Mark Lui,

It was my dream trip come true.

I am 66 years old and have done a lot of hiking in the USA as well as climbing Mt. Fuji, Orizaba and Iztaacchuatl volcanoes in Mexico. We have hiked to the bottom and back of the Grand Canyon at least 25 times on most of the various trails to the bottom. For me, the crowning trek was to hike in the Himalayan range. We contacted Jagat Lama in Kathmandu, Nepal and signed up for our adventure to hike for two weeks with porters and guides. Our group of friends included three men and three women aged from 60 to 75. I'm sure this would be a daunting task for Jagat and his guides.

We all hiked from Lukla to Namche which was Bill's goal (he's the 75-year-old). One of the guides stayed with Bill, and we continued with the two outstanding guides, Chet and Chandra. These two guides did everything for us; got all of our bags from the porters and put in our rooms, took our menu selections to the cooks, and discussed the plans for the following day. The guides made allowances for some who were having some altitude adjustment issues and gave positive feedback to everyone. They were very patient with all of us and really tried hard to ensure we stayed healthy and happy. I can honestly say that these were two of the best guides weíve ever had. On our hikes, the guides had to work around some of us who liked to take pictures but needed to do some additional acclimation at higher altitude. As a result three of us were able to hike all the way to Mt. Everest base camp. It was like a moonscape. We met the Korean team that was going to climb Everest as soon as the weather looked better. The base camp is awesome with tents all over the place with prayer flags, and ice towers and rocks everywhere.

At 5:00 am we were going to climb Kalapathar (5545m.) When we went out it was snowing and foggy. The weather in the valley is usually clear in the morning, foggy in the afternoon, and big clouds in the later afternoon. Chandra said we should start for Kalapathar as he felt it would clear up - and sure enough, the snow stopped and the sun came out. We made it to the summit in snow and ice.

From this mountain, we took fantastic views of Mt. Everest and Lhotse. We saw an avalanche and heard the cracking sounds coming from the Khumbu glacier. The valley we hiked was very interesting. It surpassed my expectations. I had no idea how many memorials there would be erected for the Everest climbers. It's a sight to see. There were many stupas and monasteries. There are many rock faces that have a Buddha painted or adorned with prayer flags and the rows of prayer wheels to spin. The landscape goes from lush vegetation to flower trees, to pine trees and then the tree line to tundra and almost a moonscape. The children were fun to play with and photograph. As we headed down the valley to Lukla, my wife became sick and we saw that she couldn't hike all the way down. Our great guides arranged for a horse for her to ride so we wouldn't miss our plane. At Lukla, I took my wife to a new, wonderful hospital where she was treated and given medicine. When we reached Kathmandu, there was a strike by the Maoist Communist Party that closed all of the businesses. Jagat again came to our rescue by getting a van and getting us to the airport. He, Chet and Chandra babysat us to make sure we got through the security hassle and on to the right plane. I can't imagine anyone doing anything more or better that Jagat, Chet, and Chandra could have done to make this a wonderful experience that exceeded our expectations. I recommend his services to you if you're planning to go anywhere in Nepal or Tibet. It was my dream trip come true.
Everest Base Camp Trek
Bob Hacken / Catherine L. Bordner,

Dreams of trekking in the Himalaya.
May 2010

In April/May 2010 I was part of a group of nine individuals who used Jagat Lama to coordinate our trek to Kala Pattar and Everest Base Camp. From taking care of obtaining our TIMS cards on the first day all the way through to seeing us off to the airport in Kathmandu when our trip was finished, Jagat took care of everything. Trust me when I say that there are a lot of details that need tending to in between the two above events. Jagat and his crew exceeded all expectations and made our trip stress free. This fact allows one to concentrate of the arduous task of getting to Base Camp while trusting Jagat and his crew to care of the daily details such as obtaining food and shelter. I highly recommend that you do as I did and have Jagat and his crew work with you to meet your Nepali dreams of trekking in the Himalaya.
