TMB Lunch and Water Stops

07-07-23

02-TMB_1.25.1-scaled

Staying fuelled and hydrated is key to any mountain adventure. That’s why we’ve put together this helpful list of places where you can fill up a water bottle or stop for some food.

While we’ve tried to include as much as possible, things change on the trek on a daily basis. Water fountains are shut off and refuges stop serving lunch so always prepare to go most of the day with the food and water in your back pack.

Enjoy and remember, take it easy on the cheese, wine and pizza if you’ve still got a big climb to do!
