Our well-prepared, simple, and nutritious meals in basecamp and advanced basecamp feature local cuisine and cooks. Our skillful and hard working cooks prepare three delicious hot meals each day with a very healthy diet of fresh vegetables, cheeses, eggs, and fresh as well as tinned fruits, meats and fish (all meats and fish are prepared separately out of respect for the vegetarians in our midst). They supply you with unlimited hot-drinks, the key to successful acclimatization. We have large weather-proof kitchens and dining tents, with comfortable chairs and tables. These meals are included at the organizers expense on the mountain. Please be sure to tell our leaders and cooks if you have special dietary needs, such as, vegetarian, food allergies, etcetera. We do not carry imported specialties such as “freeze-dried-food”, imported tinned meats and fish, nor imported sausages and cheeses. If you wish to eat these items, please bring them from your home.
