However, single supplement with slightly increased price can be provided depending on the demand of an individual. Himalayan Wild Treks can arrange rooms with attached bathrooms that have cold and hot water running 24/7 for shower and other purposes. However, there are teahouses that have shared washing and toilet arrangements during the trekking. Also, it is worth noting that single rooms are rare to find at higher elevations.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
This trek being a moderate of sort requires a good health of a person with ability to walk on the trail for at least five to seven hours carrying a light backpack. Walking at higher elevations require more physical stamina than at lower elevations but since this is an average route anyone with good health, willingness to walk and passion for travel can enjoy it. For the warm up, physical orientation needed for this elevation can be gained through various exercises that can be done prior to the commencement of the journey. In addition to the sound condition of heart, lung and entire setting of a body, past hiking experiences will be a plus point. Besides, it is advisable that those with any past health problems have to make sure that are medically able to walk on the trail. It is also advised that you inform Himalayan Wild Treks of any conditions before booking the trek.

Best Time to Travel in Dudh kunda
As for the propitious seasons to carry out the trekking in the Everest Region, the suggestable time would be September to November and March to May.

 Highligh of Dudh Kund Trek
The  salient UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu  gives a window into the spectacular archaeological and  cultural heritages of antique Nepal. The trail traverses through grassy valleys, forested hills, and  rustic settlements resided by Sherpa Ethnicity. A week long ritual performance at Dudhkunda Lake that brings a religious unity of Buddhist and Hinduists makes it phenomenal. While venturing into a dense alpine zones forested with fir, pine, rhododendron, and several other species of flora, we get into Sagarmatha National Park, a renown UNESCO World Heritage Site in Solukhumbu. The stunning view of  Mount Numbur  and  Mount Dhudkunda  including Mount Everest  from Dudhkunda  Lake fills the heart with spiritual tranquility and peace. The homely hospitality received at the alpine world inhabited by Tamang, Magar and Gurung leaves a sweet imprint in the hearts of the travelers.
