During a trek in Nepal, you will need to make sure you are properly fueled and hydrated. Here is some information about meals and water during a trek in Nepal:
Most trekking packages in Nepal include meals, either as part of the package or at an additional cost. The food is typically simple, but nutritious and filling. Meals may include items like dal bhat (a lentil soup with rice and vegetable curry), noodles, bread, eggs, and vegetables. Tea and coffee are also commonly served.
It is important to stay hydrated during your trek, so bring a water bottle and fill it up with clean water. You can buy bottled water along the way, but it is better for the environment and your budget to refill your bottle with filtered or purified water. Many tea houses and lodges have water filters or purification systems, or you can use water purification tablets or a portable water filter. It is recommended to drink at least 3-4 liters of water per day during your trek.
Bring some snacks with you for energy during the trek. Energy bars, nuts, and dried fruit are good options.
If you have any dietary restrictions or preferences, let your trekking company know in advance so they can make arrangements. Vegetarian and vegan options are commonly available in Nepal, but it is always best to check in advance.
Remember to wash your hands regularly and practice good hygiene to avoid getting sick from contaminated food or water. It is also important to be aware of altitude sickness and drink enough water to avoid it. Enjoy the local cuisine and stay hydrated during your trek in Nepal!
