Full of temples and stupas, rickshaws and markets, Kathmandu is an intoxicating start to any adventure. Visit the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to learn about responsible trekking before the exciting challenges ahead.
Trek remote mountain paths, cross glaciers, traverse lush valleys, scale high passes and ascend to the foot of world's highest peak.

Fly back from Lukla and shop in Kathmandus’s vibrant markets. Head out to see the resident monkeys at Swayambhunath or simply relax with a spiced chai as you prepare to trek the Annapurna circuit.
Take a day relaxing in this tiny village that offers fantastic views of what's to come. Take a guided walk through ornate buildings and meet villagers in Bandipur’s vibrant countryside.
See waterfalls of melted snow, cross fast-flowing rivers and traverse broad plains while trekking the Annapurna Circuit. Discover traditional mountain communities, isolated monasteries and friendly locals herding yaks. High-altitude trekking can be incredibly difficult but the spectacular scenery, an encouraging guide and the odd dip in a natural hot spring keeps motivation levels high.
Stretch weary muscles on an easy stroll around the lake. Perhaps hire a boat to explore further, or take a trip to the International Mountaineering Museum. Reminisce over this epic trekking adventure with a celebratory dinner.
Why not head out to Pashupatinath on the holy Bagmati River or celebrate the adventure with new friends and a final Nepali feast.
