Most lodges serve simple, hot and hygienic meals. The guaranteed meals are local staple dal bhat (lentil and rice) and noodle soup. Coffee and tea are available. The food menu is long and there are varieties but it is difficult to predict if all meals can be prepared as expected. Like yak, stead is usually are buff (meat from water buffalo) steak.

This airport is about an 8-hour drive from Kathmandu. In this case, you have to stay overnight at Ramechap to take an early morning flight to Lukla or vice versa.

    • Tipping:

The trip leader or trek guide gives a guideline to the member who wishes to contribute to a group tip for local trek staffs and porters at the end of the trek. It is voluntary but somehow expected. Trek staffs and porters look forward to working on the trek with the expectation of tips. Actually, they play a major role in the success of your trek despite the difficult condition. It is an important act as you are directly helping them and their families. Normally tips for a lead guide is US$15 -$20 per day and assistant guides or sherpas US$10 – $15 per staff per day. For porter, it is US$5 to $10 per porter per day. On hard and strenuous treks you allow a proportionately higher amount depending upon the condition.
