Teahouses are essentially small hotels found in local villages that offer both a place to sleep as well as home-cooked meals. Most rooms are shared with two small cots that have mattress, pillows, and sheets. Blankets are also available upon request but might not live up to your expectation of cleanliness. The walls are pretty thin so noise carries and bringing earplugs to get a good night sleep is recommended. You might also want to bring your own pillowcase to put on the pillow just in case.
The trekking route is not that convenient and at times you have to walk through zigzag tracks and bends. For that, it is essential to have light exercises before and at middle of the trip.
