Meals & Drinks on Your Snow Leopard Expedition
Lunches and dinners are also served at our accommodations with buffets and a la carte menus offering both Western and local cuisine. While at the Snow Leopard Lodge in Mangyu, a hot breakfast made to order with items such as eggs and porridge will be available daily. A set menu will also be made fresh daily by the lodge chef and served for lunch and dinner.
Please understand that the meals at the lodge while hearty and delicious, are specially planned and prepared for well in advance. Dietary requirements due to serious medical conditions or strict personal restrictions (such as vegetarian) can be met, with ample notice, but must be adhered to while on the adventure as it can be difficult to procure additional last-minute supplies.
Indian cuisine can traditionally be spicier than some Western palates are accustomed to. However, we often find that the unique local flavors are enjoyed by those who do not care for spicy food. If you have concerns about the spice level of the dishes provided, please let your Expedition Leader know. Keep in mind that although we will try our very best to accommodate any special requests, it can often be difficult to completely remove all spice from local dishes, particularly in the more remote areas of the country. As a quick tip, curd (yogurt) and bananas are the best foods to cut the “heat” from any chili spices.
Important: If you have a nut allergy, you may want to consider bringing your own snacks on the trip, as it can be difficult to find certified nut- free snacks in India.
