However, buying a regular bottle of mineral water can cost anywhere between 1 and 3 USD. Another option, you can also get to refill the water from taps without any charges, in this case, the water might not be as clean as the new bottle of water but it can be fine to drink by using purification pills or other purification methods. Remember, water is very important even at altitude, keep drinking and stay hydrated.

The rooms typically have only 2- 3 single beds with nice and warm blankets, pillows, comfortable matrices, attached bathrooms (not everywhere), and nice views.
