How much money should I carry during the trek?

Money requirement depends largely on the type of trek style, duration and trekking region, and of course on your spending habit. For a two-week Everest/Annapurna trek, you can take about $200-300, more if you intend to get more table drinks (alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages), snacks while walking (a few smaller shops are available along the trail in some areas), souvenirs, battery charge, internet, hot shower (available in some places) etc. Normally, a meal costs around $7-8, water around $1.5-$2, soft drinks, Pringles, hot shower, wifi & battery charge cost around $3-$5, and they all tend to be more expensive as you climb higher. If you are on ‘GAP’ trek style you need to pay for all your meals. Approximately $25-30 a day should be enough to cover your meals. We pay for your accommodation at mountain huts (tea houses) along the trail and bear all the expenses of staffs assigned by us.
