Mountain Food

Mountain food in Nepal

Mountain food is known as trekking food in Nepal's major trek routes. The basic to luxurious tea house sells rice, soup, instant noodles, bread, tea, coffee, porridge, eggs, meat, juice, fruits, and drinks. Local and Western food menus are on the traditional trails of Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu, and Everest. The local lodge management committee fixed the menu price. Teahouse restaurants have opened Since 1978. Food varieties are in Kathmandu and Pokhara, including pepper steaks, pizzas, roast chicken and chips, bolognese, lasagne, moussaka, tandoori dishes, and bakeries. Several restaurants use foreign chefs such as Indians, Italians, French, Irish, Germans, Mexicans, Thais, and Chinese.

Mountain food should take only their lodges outside foods are not allowed if found, charge extra money. If you are in a group, order similar items to save fuel. Trekkers may preserve the Himalayan environment using drinkable iodine water. Annapurna Region sells ACAP drinking water in 29 different places. The food will be cheap in the beginning hiking routes and expensive to the high pass and base camp with its transport. We request not to waste food and leave rubbish only in a designed place. Buy energy bars, cookies and toilet rolls from Kathmandu and Pokhara at a reasonable price. Trekking food is prepared within an hour, though it takes longer during the peak season. Order and eat only local food in the hiking to support the village economy. Follow Eco-friendly rules by staying in a little lodge and avoiding the crowd.
