In rural areas entire hotels are build by own family and its family owned hotels provides local meals and western meals as per your choice. The main advantage of tea house treks is that you don’t have to carry your tents, meals and camping materials along with you during the trek.
Most of the popular trails like Annapurna, Langtang and Everest areas provide western services like various cuisine menu including hard and soft drinks, hot showers, western toilets etc. but in remote and less popular trails you must have to have only local meals what their family eats every day. Those tea houses provide you milk tea, black tea lemon, ginger and mint as well as per your choice. In popular regions you will be able to order apple pie, Pizza to hot chocolates too. Milk and black coffees are available along the route but they might not be readily available so you better to carry your own coffee brand and take from Kathmandu’s store if you are one who not used these coffee buffs.
