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!
