As the new trail, Mundum Trek has very basic lodging facilities which will surely improve in the days to come. As of now, the accommodation along the trail is pretty basic with shared toilets. While going for camping trek can be an alternative in the region, staying in the local tea houses is the most common in practice.
For the food in Mundum Trek, you can expect to eat Dal Bhat in most of the places. While some places will offer you the option of other foods like chowmein and other local foods. Clean drinking water can also be a little difficult so it is wise to carry water purifying pills or drink boiled water. Buying bottled water can be a little expensive.
Although the accommodation and foods are basic in this region, you will surely love the astonishing nature, culture, and views of the mountains. This new trekking trail in Nepal is also slowly getting some notice.
