Watch: Journey to Everest


dscn8032The objective of this trip is to trek in an off-the-beaten-track region of Nepal where there is varied terrain of moderate difficulty, spectacular mountain views, interesting villages, and friendly local people who see few trekkers

We avoid the major trekking routes and get to experience a very different side of Nepal. We try to include a visit to a staff member’s village to experience wonderful Nepalese hospitality and cross-cultural interaction.

We continually research and choose different areas to make this trip as special as possible, so there is no pre-set itinerary, but you won’t be disappointed!

Detailed Itinerary

Arrive in Kathmandu and transfer to the Kathmandu Guest House. Day free to relax and get over your jet-lag!

1

Today there is an organised sightseeing tour of Kathmandu and Patan that will give you a basic orientation of the area for further exploration on your own.

2

Final briefing and preparation for trek then the rest of the day is free to discover the shops, temples, back alleys, restaurants and people of Kathmandu on your own. Your guide is always available to help plan excursions such as an optional day-hike in the valley.

3

We begin our special trek in a region of Nepal where we are off the main trekking trails most of the time, and where the villages and local people have not been overly influenced by trekkers and tourism. We start from Kathmandu and spend the first half of the day driving through scenic foothills to the starting point of our trek. From here we have an afternoon walk to our first campsite of the trip.

4

A wonderful trek with spectacular diverse scenery and interesting villages and culture and people continues for the next nine days. Some of the regions we plan to explore will be Gorkha, Helambu, and the off-beat areas of Langtang and Annapurna.

5-11

After trekking to the end of our trail and the road-head, we are met by our private vehicle and driven back to Kathmandu, arriving in the evening. Overnight at the Kathmandu Guest House.

Free in Kathmandu to relax after the trek, take long showers, go swimming, shopping, restauranting, or explore the surrounding countryside.
