Therefore the food and accommodation along the EBC trek are usually basic but trust us you will be well pandered. Teahouse menus all offer up a similar variety of food menus – momo dumplings noodle soup and dal bhat tarkari the authentic Nepali food. While the menus are repetitive these foods are full of healthy calories which fuels you up to push more. The rooms will be usually on twin-sharing basis with comfortable bedding and warm blanket.
