Food and amenities you would get all along this circuit would be mostly very basic , given the remote location and steep gradient of the places.
The menu would be quite common almost everywhere in this region - something like this: soup noodles / noodles in breakfast, rice-dal-sabji-papad in lunch, khichdi-papad / omelette in dinner.
Also, there are few other things a city dweller from the plains has to forget while traveling in this region, like - wasting water, electricity, cell phone network and of course internet.....!!!
In most places, electricity is from solar or generator. In Sandakphu electricity would be only for 2 hrs - 6 pm to 8 pm in the evening. In very few places, sometimes, if you are lucky, momentarily you may get Jio/Airtel/BSNL network.
Well, after encountering a few leeches at night on the grassland beside the lodge, it was a good night's sleep :)
Next day we started for Sandakphu - 29 km from Chitray.
Note that, all Land Rovers take around 5 to 6 halts of ~10-15 mins each en route to Sandakphu. There may be few reasons for that - firstly, its a very steep and difficult terrain to drive on and the controls in the 1950s' Land Rover model is obviously not the easiest one to use, let alone automatic. So after a strenuous driving for 5-6 kms a break is a must needed one. Secondly, these halts give the car engine the cooling time necessary, after each of the steep and bumpy climb. Thirdly, it also in a way, help the travelers to get acclimatize to the increasing altitude and decreasing oxygen level.
