This tour spends three nights in a comfortable hotel in Kathmandu and fifteen nights on trek in lodges (teahouses). In Kathmandu we usually stay at the Hotel Royal Singi, a 4-star hotel located within walking distance of the Thamel district. All rooms have en suite facilities and there is a restaurant, a bar and an outdoor courtyard. There is free Wi-Fi throughout. There is an Exodus desk in the hotel reception area and an Exodus representative will usually be available. The teahouses are basic but adequate; please be realistic about what to expect in the mountains.  The hub of the teahouse is the dining room, sometimes with a stove or heater (some lodges charge a fee to put the heater on). Some tea houses above 3000m may not be heated due to local environmental restrictions. Occasionally kerosene burners can be used to heat common areas if requested. We recommend against using these due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, and your leader will not offer this to you. Most teahouses sell snacks and other essentials Almost all lodges have electricity but it is not wholly reliable a torch is essential. Electrical charging facilities are generally available only in the dining room (charged at approx. Rs150-350 per hour per device). Many of the lodges use solar power so sometimes there is not enough electricity for charging. Many lodges have Wi-Fi these days – in some areas it works well but in others it is slow and temperamental. We book twin-share bedrooms throughout this trek. Beds with foam mattresses, bedsheets and a pillow are provided. Bedrooms are unheated and can get cold at night so you will need to bring or hire a sleeping bag. Most lodges have only one or two basic toilets and sometimes these are located outside the main lodge building. Toilets are usually Asian ’squat’ style. Toilet paper is not provided so you should bring your own or buy it locally. Some lodges now have hot 'showers' (charged at approx. Rs250-500 per shower). Sometimes a hot shower is simply a bucket of hot water and not a shower head. Standards of cleanliness vary especially in the peak trekking season and in winter when the water freezes at night. Please report any problems to your leader or the lodge and be vigilant in your personal hygiene regime – use soap or hand sanitizer gel before and after toilet breaks, snacks and meal times. As a general rule, the higher altitude you go to, the more basic the lodges and the more expensive food and services become. Most lodges in the Everest region offer Wi-Fi. Wi-fi is chargeable in each lodges NRs500-NRs800 per night. Sometimes the Wi-Fi may not work because of the poor network coverage or power cuts. Extra Accommodation If you require any additional accommodation in Kathmandu either before or after the tour, we can book this for you (subject to availability), please enquire with your Sales Consultant. Single Accommodation If you prefer your own room, we offer a single supplement for the hotel nights in Kathmandu only (subject to availability). While in the tea houses, single rooms cannot be guaranteed so these have not been included in the single supplement price paid in advance. However, if a single room is available on arrival to a tea-house, you can pay locally on a day-by-day basis.
