Upon landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport at any time, you will be welcomed by one of our company’s team member who will escort you to your Hotel. There is nothing else planned for this day, so you can check into your Hotel and relax. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

You will have a sightseeing tour today of the Kathmandu city. Specifically, you will be visiting the four major UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the city. The sites include the Pashupatinath Temple, the Swayambhunath Stupa, the Boudhanath Stupa, and the Kathmandu Durbar Square. All these sites hold religious and historical traits of the country and are built in the unique architecture and depict amazing works of art done on the stone walls, the metal work and the wood carvings of the buildings. After the tour, you will be transferred to the Hotel again where you will prepare for tomorrow’s trekking trip. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

From Kathmandu, you will catch your flight to the lake-side city of Pokhara. It is also referred to as “the tourism hub” of Nepal and is situated right beside the beautiful Phewa Lake. From Pokhara, you will begin your trek, making your way out the city and meandering through the dense forests of pine and cedar towards the village of Ulleri. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Ulleri, you will have a long day of trekking upwards through the terrain today towards the famous village of Ghorepani. Forward from Ulleri lies a stone stairway to Ghorepani. Climbing up the stairs, you will then trek through the woods towards Ghorepani from where the views of the peaks like the Hiunchuli (6441m) and the Annapurna South (7219m) are just magnificent. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Namche Bazaar, the trekking trail continues further towards the Dudh Koshi River Valley, reaching Phunke Tenga—a small settlement that offers an excellent view of Ama Dablam (6856m). Trekking along the alpine forest, you will finally reach Tengboche, the spiritual center of Khumbu. You can visit the famous and large Tengboche Monastery here. The monastery is surrounded by rhododendron-covered forests that are home to the colorful Himalayan monal and mountain eagles. Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Tengboche.

From Tadapani, you will make your way through the lush woodland once again and pass a river on your way to Chhomrong. It is a traditional ethnic Gurung village from where the views of the Annapurna peaks seem to tower over like giant silver colossi. The terrain is adorned with amazing rhododendron woods and maple trees with rock-strewn boulders and pale grasslands. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Chhomrong, you will make your way through the lush juniper hamlets and terrains dotted with cairns and prayer flags towards the village of Bamboo. All along the journey, the views of the mountain peaks keep you company. The tall cliffs also harbor frozen waters and occasionally, you can also spot Himalayan pheasants in the woods. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

Crossing the village, you will trek on a beautiful trail uphill-and-downhill through the sanctuary’s lush woods and thick drapery of alpine forest towards Deurali- a dainty settlement known for its beauty and tranquil atmosphere. You can see small terrace farms here where the local people plant potatoes and buckwheat. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

Above Deurali, the valley widens and the grounds are relatively flatter and less steep. Climbing up some stone stairs, you will continue along the trail gaining steady elevation as you reach the Machhapuchhre Base Camp. From here, the trail branches out to reach the Annapurna Base Camp, from where a 360° mountain view of peaks like the Annapurna I (8091m), the Annapurna South (7219m), Mount Machhapuchhre (6997m) and several others. Overnight stay at the Annapurna Base Camp

From ABC, you will retrace your steps back down through the valley and follow the steadily narrowing path to reach the village of Bamboo again. The walk down is easier than the climb and the views of the mountain peaks decorate the horizon quite beautifully. You also pass Hinku cave and Dovan on the trek to Bamboo. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

From Bamboo, you will pass through the settlement of Sinuwa and trek deeper into the valley towards the Jhinu village. At Jhinu Danda, you can also relax at the many naturally occurring hot spring that is said to have minerals laced in the water that flows through the ground and out from stone spouts. The waters of the hot spring heal and soothe aching muscles. Overnight stay at the guesthouse.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

19 Days

Annapurna Circuit Trek spans over 180km covering four different districts and encircling the entire Annapurna massif. Annapurna Circuit Trek assimilates into a complete adventure while exploring the entire Buddhism prevalent villages and Himalayas and so is also known as Annapurna Round Trek. With serene trails and climbs that go as high as 5416 meters at Thorung La Pass, the Annapurna Circuit Trek is a journey that never slows down and reveals a new experience on every turn of the trail.

This 19-days Annapurna Circuit trek begins at the capital city of Nepal –Kathmandu. After your arrival, you’ll embark on a brief cultural tour of the Kathmandu city and explore some of the famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The trek formally begins at Jagat, Lamjung which takes 7 to 8 hours of the commute from Kathmandu through the swirling hills of Nepal. The entire trek goes anti-clockwise and through the hills to the Himalayas. The slowly rising altitude provides a great chance to acclimatize en route. You’ll cross many villages in Lamjung namely Dharapani, Chame, and Pisang before entering the Manang district. You’ll encounter mountains and the esteemed Buddhist practices at Manang. From here, you’ll make an ascent of one of the biggest passes in the world, Thorung La (5416m), before reaching to the other side to Mustang. Here on, the landscape is entirely semi-arid and desert-like. You’ll descend to Muktinath, a religious destination for thousands of annual Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. You’ll descend further and make your way to Marpha via Jomsom, the headquarters of Mustang district. From here, it’s a continuous descent. The trek concedes at Tatopani, from where you’ll catch your commute back to Pokhara city. Annapurna Circuit trek can be undertaken mostly during spring (Mar-May) and autumn (Sep-Nov).

Khopra Ridge Community Trek

13 Days

Khopra Ridge Community Trek is a marvellous adventure where exotic cultures blend together with natural beauty and Himalayan ethos to present trekkers with an experience that embeds itself into the minds for years. The trek is off-the-beaten-paths journey taking place in the gorgeous Annapurna region of Nepal. The trekking routes are adorned with unique topographical and edifying cultural hallmarks of the region giving surfeit of opportunities to enchant you during the length of the trip.
The Khopra Ridge Community Trek starts from the beautiful city of Pokhara- the second-largest metropolis of Nepal. In addition to being known as the “Tourist Hub” of the country, Pokhara is also situated close to the Annapurna Mountains, and its location right next to the pristine Phewa Lake makes it one of the most sought-after mainstream centres of tourism activity. From the city, the trekking journey continues on to the far-off settlements and villages of the region like the Syauli Bazaar, Dobato, and Chistibang among many. Although the Khopra Ridge Community Trek follows the same initial path as that of the famous ABC Trek, it diverts away from the main trail and instead meanders through the hidden valley into enveloped areas of the region. Because of this, the trekking journey is also one of the best alternative options for people who are looking for a journey that isn’t as crowded as other Annapurna treks. Moreover, the Khopra Ridge Community Trek also has many highlights; trekkers visit the beautiful Lake Kaire, situated above the Khopra Danda. Many trekkers even put forth the notion that the panoramic view of the Marsayangdi River valley and of the Annapurna Himalayas decorating the skyline of the river gorge is the most amazing view in the entire region. The Khopra Ridge Community Trek is a moderate trekking journey that anyone can do with relative ease. However, the best time to do the journey would be from March to May and September to December as these months present favourable weather conditions.

The Khopra Ridge Community Trek by Himalayan Recreation is one of the best off-beaten journeys of the Annapurna. The trekking package includes all of the best features and is made with the best services in accordance with transportation, accommodation, guide, and meals. It is an all-rounded journey that you surely do not want to miss out on!
