  1. I have been on the Roopkund trek, and we never had a Western toilet seat. There were dry and wet toilets, and I never had any problem.

    1. These Western toilets are something we have introduced recently. There are wet toilets where digging into the earth is difficult like at the Bhagwabhasa campsite.

      1. Honestly, wet and/or Indian toilets sound better than Western toilets. If somebody is fit enough to trek, he is also fit enough to squat and do his business – Indian style 🙂

        1. Hi Madhura, We have stopped the western toilets like you see in the video. It is going to be dry Indian toilets. 🙂
