Himalayan tea house

One of the pleasant features of hiking the Everest Base Camp Trail as opposed to other treks in the world is that the Tibetans and Sherpa have an established network of teahouses providing lodging. Sleeping in a comfy bed, even if it is literally freezing, is significantly better than sleeping on the cold hard granite ground in a tent. The operators of the teahouses are all quite pleasant and will offer up some interesting dinner conversation which goes well with the traditional Nepalese dal bhat (rice, lentils, veggies, and curry).
