TNG tea house food costs

Hi everyone. I'm hopefully doing the High Passes of Everest soon and it's been a fair while since I went to Nepal. What sort of prices are we talking for food in the tea houses above Namche now? We used to spend about £5 on evening food, excluding bottles of Coke, but I suppose it's rather more than that now. How about showers? They used to be free on the Annapurna Circuit!

Hi DJ,

I did the Mount Everest base camp trek in Nov-Dec 2014 and although I'm struggling to remember the exact prices, I do know a main meal beyond Namche wasn't substantially more than £5, excluding drinks. Approximately £20/day for food and drink was enough for me, throughout the trek, that was buying a couple bottles of Coke each day and the odd bottle of water and tube of Pringles.

I'm only speculating here but I wonder if the consequences of the recent earthquakes will have had any effect on prices. You know with the possiblity that lodges and tea houses will have bills to pay for building repairs and replacement of damaged fixtures and fittings.
