Food and drinking water are two of the essential need for any trekkers in the Himalayas. If you are trekking in more touristic areas, you can find a wide range of foods even in the higher altitude. For some of the trekking program in lesser developed parts, you might have to choose from the locally available staples. Similarly, if you are traveling in rural and inhabited regions, you will have to carry the necessary food items from the start of the trek. However, it is more accessible in case of clean drinking water here. You will find plenty of freshwater streams and drinking water taps available throughout most of the trail. For extra assurance, you can ask the locals to boil the drinking water or carry some purification tablets with you.
Accommodation changes as one gain altitude while trekking in the Himalayas. You might have to give up some of the luxuries like a hot shower, internet, and even electricity in some of the upper regions. You can carry a solar-powered mini Power Bank for charging much of the devices here. You can get a room with fundamental facilities in most of the places in each of the trekking places.
