The Himalayas are filled with streams and rivers. This is the main source of drinking water for the trek.
Our kitchen staff use the same water for cooking purpose as well.
The water is clean and is perfectly healthy to consume. In fact it is much better than the chlorinated water that you get in your cities.
I do understand that you might have concerns with the water and want to be extra careful.
