Highlights

 
     

    Come with me on a beautiful nature trek through the unrivaled Himalayan mountains! Over 16 days you will travel and sightsee through the heart of Nepal to the foot of the world-renowned Mt. Annapurna. Let me guide you through lush forests and snow-capped mountains in this truly awe-inspiring program.

    The Annapurna Massif includes Annapurna I (8,091m), the 10th tallest peak in the world, as well as 13 other peaks of over 7,000 meters. Located nearby is the Dhaulagiri Massif and Dhaulagiri I (8,167m), the 7th tallest mountain in the world.

    The scenery is clearly unique to the Himalayan mountains. The Annapurna Base Camp sits at 4,130m, and you will reach a maximum altitude of 5,416m. At these heights, the most impressive views will be all yours for over two weeks.

    Our program begins in Kathmandu for sightseeing before flying to Pokhara and the adventure ahead. We are going to travel through lowland villages to experience the culture of Nepal. These communities will allow you to see a side of the Himalayas that only a handful of people will ever experience.

    And if you take this trek in the spring, we have the added bonus of the blooming rhododendrons along the trails. Imagine being surrounded by colorful red, white, and pink blossoms while taking in the mountainous skyline.

    After reaching the base camp, the return trip is equally satisfying. We will see the stunning beauty of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains as we trek towards Ghorepani.

    This sightseeing and nature trek is considered moderate to advanced, so a relatively good fitness level is needed.

    You can take this trip anytime of the year outside of monsoon season, which falls in July and August.

    Book this trip now and let me guide you through the unimaginable beauty of our world´s highest peaks!

    If you are a more ambitious climber, I will guide you to the summit of Annapurna! Or I can take you to the top of Dhaulagiri!
