In order to provide you with the best possible price and to get as much money as possible directly to the people who
are actually doing the work, we do not charge you in advance for teahouse lodging and food. The guide will be able to
book accommodation for the group in advance during high season. However, you will pay the
teahouse owner directly for food and lodging. Budget at least
a day for food and lodging to be paid in
cash directly to the teahouse.
Estimated food & lodging for this trip
$150 per person.

(if you have hired one) for public buses and public jeeps. In the case of flights, a fee for the guides
transportation is included in the price. You have the option of allowing us to also book your flight this
ensures that your guide can be on the same flight. You are also free to book your own flight with the
airlines directly if you wish please let us know your flight information if you book your own tickets.
If you are on trek in which multiple trekkers have joined we will provide you with the contacts of
other members of your trek so that you can arrange your transportation together.
