  • 7
  • … a repetitive menu gets you down. Expect hearty dal bhat (rice and lentil curry, with veggie variations) is served everywhere, everyday, with more variety in Lukla and Namche Bazaar. It’s good fuel for trekking though. As the saying goes: Dal Bhat power, 24 hour!
  • 7
  • … your exercise routine involves walking to the pub and back. While you don’t need to be super-fit, the more fitness training and hiking you do before you go the more you’ll enjoy it."
  • 7
  • Preparation Tips-
  • 7
  • “Before you are physically ready, you have to be ready mentally. Of course, some physical training is good. It would be nice if you are walking two or three hours every day during the month before you start the trip, that will help a lot with regards to trekking the trail. But some people are mentally unprepared. They worry too much about the altitude or it being their first time trekking. Rather than feeling that way they should just be positive, and trust that if they follow the leader’s instructions and listen carefully to his advice, it will be fine. So prepare in a positive way rather than a negative way, expecting bad things to happen.”
