Drinking Water and a Hot Shower in the ABC Trek

The water from the sources along the way is unsafe to drink. So, we suggested not to drink directly from the top. Bottle of the water is available to buy throughout the way. The best idea is to bring your refillable bottles along with water sanctification tablets to help against the threat of waterborne diseases. You can fill the water at the teahouse along the trip whereas boiled water is also available with minimum charges. still, we discourage buying mineral bottled water that helps to produce plastic pollution in the mountains.

Wi-Fi and Electricity are available in the tea houses in the lower zones of the Annapurna Himal journey. The trekkers can recharge while maintaining an active social media. There may be an extra charge of over $3 for wi-fi and charging stations at the tea houses. There is no electricity facility after the lower side only solar power is available, which can bring you around $3 to charge your phone and other electronics. There are 2 common networks in Nepal (NTC and NCELL) which you buy for 1.5 to 3 USD. Both work in Annapurna Himal but in base camp NTC is better than NCELL. When you are at a higher altitude it will be hard to access the mobile network, Wi-Fi, and electricity. We advise hikers to travel with interim power banks.

    We signed up for a 10-day ABC trek for a group of 6.

    As we were a group of semi-veterans yet still fit for the tour, both Santosh and Amrit and their team of porters ensured every arrangement detail was taken care of.

    Santosh and Amrit were knowledgeable in every aspect of the trek to ensure we could indulge in the trek at our body’s optimum level.

    They were always in control to make sure things stayed as planned with a bit of leeway for for jokes and fun, of course.
