The food is one of the most important things on the trek. We know about it well and that is why we pay attention at what you will eat during our tours.
Our cooks prepare meals with fresh local ingredients bought in the local markets and transported to the mountains by the horses or mules.
Our cooks also are chosen very carefully. All of them are experienced professionals (they work in local restaurants and also for many years cook meals on mountains).
Every day during your trekking tour we serve breakfast, lunch (or lunch packet) and dinner.
We choose food that is easily digestible: rise, pasta, bulgur (kind of groats) and potatoes.
Every day we serve also fresh fruits and vegetables.
