You may need to share a bathroom as well that is located out of the room. But there is the availability of electricity. So, you can charge your electronic gadget at free of cost.

Drinking water

Dhampus Sarangkot trekking is a short trek. And you can get clean drinking water at every shop. Mineral bottled water can also be bought. If you want boiled water, it is also accessible within your bed charge.
Though some companies recommend having your own water bottle and water purification tablet, Rising Adventure advises buying a mineral bottle or drinking boiled water instead of keeping your own water bottle. Because this is a very short trek, so buying a mineral bottle may cost cheaper than buying a water bottle.
On the other hand, we always recommend keeping your own reusable water bottle and purified medicine for the long days trekking because the cost of water is expensive in the higher elevation area and you have to pay extra even for boiled water though you get it from the tea houses where you have spent your night.

In the case of this trekking to Sarangkot and Dhampus, buying mineral water may cost cheaper, therefore.
