    Welcome to Kathmandu, our representative will meet you at the Tribhuvan International Airport and transfer you to your hotel to relax after a long journey.

    Our day will begin after breakfast with some last minute purchases and preparation if needed for our trek to come. The rest of the day is for sightseeing and exploring the Kathmandu valley. An ancient land full of incredible history, Kathmandu Valley boasts many UNESCO World Heritage Sites which are a testament to the fabulous art, culture, and traditions here. We will visit the Patan Durbar Square, Basantapur Durbar Square, Pashupatinath temple, Boudhanath Stupa and Swayambhunath. If you are interested, this is also a great opportunity to try local foods.

    To avoid the traffic condition, we will leave early from Kathmandu. We will have a pleasant ride along with the views of the mountains in the background through a hilly landscape surrounded by lush forests. Then after arrival in Dhading Besi, we will move towards Soti Khola with a bumpier ride.

    We will begin our walk to Machha Khola after breakfast. Through thick forests and through high ridges we will walk next to the Budhi Gandaki Rivers, which is a glacially fed and fast-moving river. Rice terraced fields pave the way as we make our way towards a Gurung village called Lapubesi, with a few lovely waterfalls along the way. The trail will ascend and descend a few times before finally crossing a suspension bridge to reach the village of Maccha Khola.

    From Machha Khola, we will make multiple small ascents and descents as we make our way through the narrow paths of this region. We will witness nature’s bounty as we cross a hot water spring and move on to our goal. The winding Gandaki is visible to us as we cross suspension bridges and start climbing stone steps. We will descend a ridge alongside the river as to reach Jagat.

    Suspension bridges are the backbone of many trails in Nepal and we will see and cross quite a few in this trek too. We will pass small Gurung settlements as the landscape slowly changes, starting from rocky climbs to wide valleys, bamboo forests and through lush grassy slopes. This transition in ecology is a wonderful example of how rich the diversity of flora fauna in Nepal is. After following the winding paths and crossing the Deng Khola, we will reach the village of Deng.

    Today we will witness the winding nature of Budhi Gandaki as we will be crossing it multiple times. Along the way, there will be quite a few Gompas on the way interspersed with forests. We will stop at Prok village to enjoy beautiful views of the Shringi Himal 7161m. The narrow gorge and the surrounding views give this place a very wild feeling. After a steep climb, we will reach the village of Namrung. Namrung offers brilliant viewing spots for the mountains of Shringi 7161, Himalchuli 7,893m and the Ganesh Himal 7,422m.

    On our way to Samagaon, we will pass many small villages with terraced farming sprinkled among forests as we make the steady climb. The beautiful villages of Shyala, Lho and Sho are also crossed during this path as the Manaslu towers over the villages. In this place, you can see much of the topographical diversity of this region, with almost 360 of mountain views. Once we reach Samagaon, we will overnight there.

    Today we will explore an old Gompa of this region called the Pung Gyen Gompa. The Sherpa culture art and tradition can be seen here in the colorful and intricately carved stone walls full of Tibetan script which are plenty in number, and the colorful clothes are worn by the women while prayer flags flutter all around. We will enjoy amazing views of the Pungen glacier from the Gompa and it is a good place to make some memorable photos. Then we will return back to Samagaon.

    As we move towards Samdo, we will again meet the fierce Budi Gandaki River. The trail is relatively easy and we will move through forests at a good pace depending on how everyone feels. This is also the path to Manaslu Base Camp. The rocky sandy texture of this region with the occasional patches of snow make it a different terrain, with thorny shrubs and bushes scattered along the way. To enter the village of Samdo we will enter through a large arch, almost like a doorway to another world.

    We will rest in Samdo today for acclimatization to the high altitude. Experts recommend a short hike as the best option to get used to the high altitude and this is exactly what we will do today. We will hike to the back of Samdo village from where we can witness breathtaking views of the great Manaslu (8163m) along with other mountains such as the Naike (6211m), Samdo (6335m) and so on. This route to Samdo is one of the trading routes to Tibet that had been used previously to the border being closed except for one place father to the east. Be on the lookout for some beautiful species of birds such as the Lophophorus, which is the national bird of Nepal and many other birds of prey.

    Today is a relatively shorter walk. We will again meet Budhi Gandaki multiple times and cross many small wooden bridges. We will be able to witness the Syacha glacier and appreciate its beauty as we go around the valley and walk up to a Dharamsala. Upon reaching Dharamsala we can rest and relax and enjoy the majestic views.

    After a short uphill trek from Dharamsala, we will be able to witness the Larkya glaciers and the peaks such as Larkya (6249m) and Cheo (6812m). We will walk on the icy glacier and gradually make our way down as the path become steeper. We will cross the high Larkya La pass here which gets steeper as we ascend to the top. As we reach the pass we can get majestic views of the peaks such as Cheo Himal (6812m), Kangguru (6981m) and Annapurna II (7937m). Then we will cross Dangboche Kharka and finally arrive at Bimthang.

    The Lamjung Himal 6,983, Manaslu (8163m) and Himlung 7,126m beauty can be witnessed from Bimthang. We will start to descend today and will pass through lush pastures with many grazing animals. The narrow path makes its way through forests of Rhododendron and enters a valley of immense beauty, Karche. We will then continue on our journey to Tilije. Tilije is the Gurung Village and we will visit Tilije Gumba which shows the culture and tradition of the Gurung Community.

    Today we will enter the Annapurna circuit as we climb small ridges, cross bridges and walk on the narrow stone path. From Dharapani, we walk further down and meet the Marsayangdi Khola. We will also cross many Mani walls and small villages typical of Tibetan Buddhist practitioners before we reach Tal.

    Today we have a long ride ahead of us. Through the lush green hills and rocky terrain with fast flowing rivers, we will make our way back to Kathmandu. The bumpy ride is bound to lull you to sleep and rest during this ride.

    As your journey comes to an end, our representative will drop you at the airport. Namaste and have a safe flight back.

FAQs

Trekking Days are designed so that the walking is enjoyable and safe. Typically, our trekking holidays involves 4 -8 hours of hiking per day, including a lunch stop. The trail varies from easy hiking on the lower elevation to strenuous walking over 5000 meters in the Himalaya Mountains. The day begins early at around 6.30 in the morning with a cup of tea. Before breakfast is the best time to pack your items not needed during the day into duffle bag keeping the essentials or items you wish to access throughout the day in your daypack. After breakfast, we are usually on the trail by 8.00 am. Lunch is around 12 pm and is generally 1-2 hour break. We reach our camp or teahouse by 4 pm as the afternoon walk is generally shorter than the morning. The time from arriving at the teahouse or campsite till dinner is your free time. There is always tea available, and sometimes side trips are available. Dinner is normally served around 7.00 pm. A common misconception is that if you are a slow walker you may hold people back – NOT SO. The group members often string out and there will be an hour or two between the first to arrive and the last. You walk at your own pace and stop when you feel like it. There will be always our trekking Sherpas, guides and porters at the front and the rear ensuring no one gets lost.

Fitness is perhaps the key factor in the trek. Most people of average fitness for their age can complete our trekking programs. It is important not only to have the most enjoyable experience but for your safety that you are both medically cleared for our programs by your doctor, and have embarked on a training program prior to leaving on our program. With that said, on all our treks you are encouraged to take your time, set your own pace and enjoy the surroundings. Most first-time trekkers are concerned that they won’t keep up. They soon discover that a steady and moderate pace will ensure an enjoyable trek, and have the energy for the duration of the trek. Trekking is not a walking competition. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it, and you will have enough energy for extra activities. The best preparation for trekking is a program that includes both cardio exercises with moderate resistance training. It is also helpful to take day hikes at least once a week gradually progressing in distance and elevation gain to simulate some of which you will encounter on the trek.

We are committed to the welfare of our staff from the trek leaders and guides to Sherpas, cooks, and porters. We ensure good wages, salary, and proper insurance.

You need general travel insurance which includes both cancellation insurance, as well as rescue insurance. Read your policy’s fine print to make sure it covers you for trekking and/or climbing, depending on what trip you have booked, and that it covers you for helicopter evacuation.

Himalayan Summit trip itineraries have been professionally designed to minimize the effects of high altitude. However, many will feel some basic symptoms of the change in altitude. Your guides are medically trained to know these symptoms and if they are progressing to a more dangerous and serious condition. It is important to be a participant in your own safety and report any ill effects to your guide as soon as possible so they may make assessments as to your condition. Extensive medical kits are carried on all our trips, and your guides are trained in the use of all the equipment. In addition, we carry a Portable Altitude Chamber which is designed to mimic air pressure at lower altitudes. Our guides are trained in wilderness medicine and adhere to international standards and have a duty of care to you, the client.

Safety is our top priority. All of our trekking group leaders and guides have undertaken the Wilderness First Aid Medical Course and have years of experience in planning, organizing, and executing a well-designed program focused on safety.

Trekking in Nepal Himalayas is an adventure holiday and thus please do not expect a shower each day.

Almost every teahouse has electrical outlets in the rooms for recharging. For camera batteries, there may be a cost of usually about 2-3 US$ per hour for re-charging. We use the 220-240 volts to power their appliances and two point’s plugs are recommended to bring.

Trekking poles can certainly be helpful. They can help shift some of the stress of descent especially off of your knees and onto your upper body. Many fine trekking poles to be beneficial for the trek, but they are not required.

It is notoriously difficult to predict the weather condition in the Himalayas. With that said, in general days may be warm and nights are cold. You can expect some snow or rain storms at times. Between 1000 and 3500 meters the temperature could be as high as 20°C to 5°C at the low end. At higher altitudes, the temperature ranges from 20°C to -10°C. During winter it is around 10°C colder.

ipping is an accepted part of trekking although it is a completely personal matter. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Budgeting up to 10 % of the trek is a good estimate.

Trekking peaks is a permit classification, and are the least expensive permits for climbing. They are also peaks that have been classified as having the least amount of technical climbing to reach the summit. Generally, these peaks can be done in a day from a high camp to the summit and back to high camp on the same day. The routes we use are chosen for their objective safety, involve easy angled snow slopes, straightforward ridges and occasionally minor scrambling. You will be using crampons, an ice axe, harnesses, fixed ropes, etc. for ascending and descending. We will introduce, review, demonstrate and provide ample time to practice all the skills required for the climbing. Trekking Peaks are carefully designed to deliver an exciting opportunity to climb a Himalayan peak while providing proper acclimatization. These treks are open to fit, determined walkers who have previously undertaken ‘strenuous’ treks; previous mountaineering experience is an advantage but not essential.
