Then we will continue until we reach the Khopra Ridge. Once there, you will be amazed by spectacular views of impressive peaks, like Annapurna South, Nilgiri, Vara Shikhar and Tukuche.

You will be amazed by the view of high mountains and snow-capped peaks, but this area not only boasts a gorgeous natural beauty; it is also culturally rich, with the unique traditions and culture of the Gurung and Magar ethnic groups. Bear in mind you need a good fitness level to join this trek, as we will be hiking and climbing for several hours each day.

On our way back we descend through open oak forests and alpine pastures,  passing by Swanta, Fulbari and also the well-known Poon Hill viewpoing, where we will watch a beautiful sunrise, surrounded by stunning mountains. We go back to the main trail at Ghorepani and follow Burungdi khola to Nayapool where our trek ends.

Back in Pokhara, we will have some time to relax at this beautiful city, before we travel back to Kathmandu.On the last day of our tour, you will enjoy a mountain flight to the Mount Everest region, getting close to the highest peak in the world and to many high mountains in the Himalayas! 

Then, back in Kathmandu again, you will have time to visit some World Heritage Sites and discover this amazing city, the capital of Nepal.

About the Guide

 
 

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
