Day 1 Kathmandu

A fusion of historical and modern, the city of Kathmandu swarms with life and colour, and is a wonderful place to begin this Nepal trekking experience. Meet monkeys while climbing to Swayambhunath and delve into the mystical charm of Durbar Square.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

Day 2 Bandipur

Leave Kathmandu and travel to Bandipur. Stay at a restored Nepalese mansion and relish the views of orange groves, hills and valleys from the terrace.

Day 3 Pokhara

Temples and palaces are replaced by soaring mountains and mirror lakes. Once on the vibrant trade route between India and Tibet, Pokhara is the gateway to some of Nepal's greatest treks.

Days 4-13 Annapurna Ranges

Hike through lowland pastures and peaceful villages, past thundering waterfalls and powerful glaciers, and be surrounded by unspeakably beautiful landscapes. The ever-changing scenery covers some of the most ruggedly beautiful mountains in the world and it's easy to understand why hiking in Nepal has long been revered by adventure travellers. Stay in basic Nepalese teahouses operated by locals and learn about the daily lives of the hill people. Witness spectacular sunrises over the Annapurna Ranges and soak tired muscles in natural hot springs along the way. While the Annapurna Sanctuary trek is challenging, it is a great way to experience these spectacular mountains without the major issues associated with high altitude – the optional trek to Annapurna Base Camp (4,130 m) is the greatest elevation reached.

Day 14 Pokhara

The final stretch is downhill all the way. With the hard work all done, enjoy a well-earned shower back in Pokhara and plenty of time to relax, recover and reminisce about the Annapurna experience.

Days 15-16 Kathmandu

Return to the whirl of Kathmandu. Readjust to the chaotic streets and hollering of enthusiastic shop vendors after so many days immersed in the tranquillity of the Annapurna Ranges. Why not take one last stroll through Thamel and pick up some colourful yak wool blankets and local handicrafts before the journey comes to an end.
