Description

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!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
