Inside the Tea House
We had fairly humble quarters during our “tea house trek” to Annapurna Base Camp. While sometimes short on amenities (like a clean pillow), the trek was long on amazing mountain vistas – especially on a clear morning!
Here’s a peek at my nightly accommodations during the 12-day hike. We started in Nayapul, altitude 1,070 meters:
Night #1: Hile, altitude 1,430 meters
Night #2: Ghorepani, altitude 2,860 meters
Night #3: Thulo Odor, altitude 3,180 meters
Night #4: Ghandruk, altitude 1,940 meters
Night #5: Chhomrong, altitude 2,170 meters
Night #6: Bamboo, altitude 2,310 meters
Night #7: Deurali, altitude 3,200 meters
Night #8: Annapurna Base Camp, altitude 4,130 meters
Night #9: Bamboo, altitude 2,310 meters
Night #10: Jhinu, altitude 1,780 meters
Night #11: Bhichwok Deurali, altitude 2,100 meters
Night #12: Pokhara, altitude 1,336 meters
Despite the cramped quarters, wooden box springs, and squat toilets, I slept like a log each night. Must’ve been the “average of 6 hours” of hiking each day!
