In the village of Phortse, we stay in a rustic but comfortable local lodge operated by Sherpa families. These are a wonderful way to experience local hospitality while interacting with the Nepalese people and gaining an insight into their lives. You'll have a private room, with shared bathrooms.There are both squat-style and western toilets available and the showers are in a separate building.Rooms are kept warm at night with warm blankets and a hot water bottle in the bed. Electricity and outlets are available in common areas, but not in individual rooms. Hot water may or may not be available at the lodge.
