Holiday Accommodation Details

Nepal - Annapurna Standard Grade Hotels

There are many lodges located in the villages and along the trail. In the lower regions of Annapurna, some lodges offer rooms with private toilet and shower, but as you travel higher up the valley it is possible you will share toilet and washing facilities.  Some lodges offer a hot shower with water heated by solar which means its availability is unreliable. 

 Annapurna Foot Hills – Standard Grade Lodges

In the Himalaya accommodation is often referred to by trekking companies as either tea house or lodge. The terms have been interchanged and misused to the point that the differential is fairly meaningless.  We use the term standard lodge and luxury lodge to differentiate between our two grades of accommodation.

There are many lodges located in the villages and along the trail. In the lower regions of Annapurna, some lodges offer rooms with private toilet and shower, but as you travel higher up the valley it is possible  you will share toilet and washing facilities.  Some lodges offer a hot shower with water heated by solar which means its availability is unreliable.  A few lodges have gas boilers or bucket showers.  There is usually a small charge for hot water.  Electricity is available at most lodges; however it is often very weak and lighting poor.  Lower level lodges seldom have heating and higher up stoves are placed under a large, communal blanketed table.   Dinner and breakfast are always taken in the lodge and an excellent choice of meals – predominantly vegetarian is served given the lack of supplies.   Accommodation is simple and clean but we advise using a sleeping bag and liner which we supply on arrival.

* please note as you are in very remote mountain locations and if there is prolonged adverse weather conditions  it is always possible, although rare, that you will need to share accommodation.
